It’s time for me to (finally) read Fake Empire, because this blurb has me VERY intrigued! I actually sampled Fake Empire back in December when I was checking out all of the books that had the potential to make my Best of 2022 list, and I really enjoyed the portion I read. It wasn’t quite strong enough to bump any of the other contenders off my list (the bar was very high), so I set it aside for a rainy day, knowing it had the potential to be a strong 5-star read. Tons of sexual tension and a messy, drama-filled vibe. Well, the next book in this series of interconnected standalones is releasing in about a month, so it’s the perfect time to get back to it! Real Regrets sounds right up my alley, and I love the twist on a marriage of convenience romance. I actually had a little audible gasp reading the end of that blurb, and I’m significantly more excited to read it now. Details on both books below!
One night. Two strangers. Lots of regrets…
A bachelor party in Las Vegas is the last place Oliver Kensington wants to spend a long weekend. He likes controlling outcomes, not the uncertainty of gambling. For the most part, his reputation as the reliable, responsible Kensington brother is well-deserved. But for one of the few people he considers a friend, he’ll show up in sin city.
Oliver’s focus is on work—and on getting back into his father’s good graces. But he’s not expecting absolution for past mistakes; Arthur Kensington doesn’t forgive.
So when an offer to forget is made as soon as Oliver returns to New York, it’s shocking. And it’s the same demand his father made years ago: to marry a woman as part of a business arrangement. This time, there’s no chance his brother Crew will be the one waiting at the end of the aisle, which is how Oliver’s last engagement ended.
The answer should be obvious. Most of Oliver’s life has centered around earning his father’s approval and becoming CEO, both of which he thought were lost opportunities. Learning they’re not should be the best news he’s received all year.
Problem is, there’s a piece of paper in his pocket that says he’s already married…to the blonde woman he met in the bar of a Vegas hotel.
Start the series today!
I’m sure Real Regrets will stand on its own, but there are definitely some family dynamics at play, so it might not be a bad idea to start with Fake Empire!
A standalone, steamy, arranged marriage romance.
Then there’s the Ellsworth family. The Kensingtons. American royalty.
Money buys power, and power always has a price. The fear of those who already possess both? Losing it. The best way to ensure keeping it? Alliances. And elites don’t marry down—they marry equal.
For Scarlett Ellsworth and Crew Kensington, that leaves one option: each other. Accepting that inevitability is very different from embracing it. That’s the only thing they agree upon.
It was meant to be a union for better and for business.
Instead, it challenges everything Scarlett and Crew thought they knew about themselves, their families, and most of all…each other.
