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…
“I know the town needs outside business to survive. I might not be a big fan of this particular idea, but I didn’t plan to sabotage it. I really tried to find someone who would like to take advantage of your proposal. I even asked Rachel if she’d agree to a fake engagement, just so you’d have someone to get a ring on February fourteenth. But it was a stupid idea, and she said no.”
Mariah blinked at him. A fake engagement? He’d really tried to arrange a fake engagement?
That could have worked. It’s not like engagements didn’t get broken. The big thing for now was to show a romantic proposal, one that would entice people from out of town to come here to replicate.
Maybe she could get Rachel to change her mind?
Mind buzzing again, she made sure. “Rachel said no?”
“She had good reasons. I hadn’t thought it through.”
Right. Mariah wouldn’t push Rachel into this. But it was a smidgeon of hope. A possibility. If there was someone else who would agree to a fake proposal with Nelson.
Someone desperate. Someone motivated.
She sighed. She knew of only one person right now that desperate and motivated. Could she make it work?
“I’m sorry, really. I tried. But there’s nothing more I can do.”
He stood up, waiting for her to leave, convinced he was off the hook.
No, she wasn’t giving up on that hook.
“I’ll do it.” She almost called the words back. This was crossing lines, smudging borders.
Nelson’s brow creased. “You’ll do what?”
“I’ll accept your fake proposal. We can get engaged for Valentine’s Day.”
