First to Fall by Laney Hatcher
With the pressure to marry and make a fine match in London, any self-respecting outsider would be looking for an escape. But when my best friend finds himself in need of a rescue, I realize our goals could be one and the same.
A fake betrothal to one’s best friend seems like the obvious solution, but Augustus isn’t so sure about my scheme. Through reluctant agreement, he and I embark on a journey destined for the altar, but something changes along the way. And very real feelings get involved.
When the path to the future is filled with more twists and turns than a hedge maze, perhaps the plan is no longer so simple. Intentions get tangled and hearts get bruised.
Can this fake marriage stay just that? Or will my heart be the first to fall?
Book #1 in the Bartholomew series follows the fake-relationship and marriage of convenience between two lifelong best friends. First to Fall is a full length historical romance filled with charm and wit, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
