How to Lose a Match in 10 Days by Chloe K. James

In 10 days.


With the help of her unlucky-in-love friend, Molly Rabbitt, Anna does whatever it takes to make Benjamin cower away from marrying her.

A Christmas Proposal by Madison Bailey


Andrew Fitzgerald has a problem. Unless he can bring home an eligible young woman and prove to his father he's serious about settling down, he will lose his inheritance. The requirement would be easier to fulfill had he not sworn never to marry.

Elinor Langley has just finished her second Little Season with a broken heart instead of an engagement. So when her brother's handsome best friend invites her to his family's Christmas house party in idyllic Castle Combe, pretending to be his fiancée seems a small price to pay for the distraction from her heartbreak.

But with Christmas trees and kissing boughs filling the air with holiday magic, will pretending to be in love be enough to save Andrew's inheritance and mend Elinor's heart, or will they learn the best things bloom in winter?
