What started as a whim turned into an accidental---and very public---engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the facade in Chapel Springs this holiday season---for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?
Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy---the best friend of Layla O'Reilly's ex-fiance---would be the last person she'd marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency---a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map.
Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she'll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she's landed her client.
For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.

Rating: ***** (A fantastic book I loved!)
Review: Seth's feelings for Layla and his protectiveness caught me right. Away. Their first kiss had me waving my hand in front of my face. Sometimes it's difficult with novellas to see the whole picture of the couple falling in love since it all happens quickly, but this one, with their past, it all flowed so well. I read this in an hour, it was just so fun and simple a read. Loved it.
