Their engagement is pretend
Cupid has other plans…
Wedding planner Mariah Van Delton has a plan to save the charming small town of Carter’s Crossing—by turning it into a romance destination! All Mariah needs is a very public Valentine’s Day proposal. And her only option? A fake one between her and the handsome town veterinarian and wedding hater, Nelson Carter. But a little charade between adversaries might just be the start of something undeniably real…
A picture flashed in Nelson’s mind. Toby, pulling the sleigh. Mariah snuggled in with him, her red coat and pink cheeks. Nelson could almost imagine proposing to her in that setting.
Whoa. He was fake proposing. They were fake dating and fake falling in love.
But somehow, when he looked across the table at her, it didn’t feel fake. He’d asked her to have dinner with him because he wanted to, not because it was part of their carefully orchestrated romance.
But maybe that was just him. Did Mariah even like him?
They argued. They didn’t agree on many things.
But Nelson enjoyed what they did. He enjoyed bantering with her more than a regular conversation with anyone else. He liked knowing that he’d never maneuver her into doing what he wanted against her wishes.
No, he was in more danger of being manipulated by her. And he liked it.
