He’s her Machiavellian savior.  She’s a burned-out entrepreneur.

Will blackmail kill their friendship or open their hearts to love?

His grandfather’s will had made it perfectly clear: Gabriel Kane had to be married by the age of thirty-seven or he’d be denied control of the family business. With only days to go, Gabriel isn’t above maintaining his deception and using blackmail and bribery to get what he wants. Too bad his friend, Josie, is his only option. But is she desperate enough to accept his marriage proposal?

Entrepreneur Josie Wright burns the candle at both ends and keeps her eye firmly on her goals: to grow her chain of coffee shops and to protect her brother. Children and a family of her own would be nice, too, but she’s wary of risking her heart again. Gabe’s unwanted proposal might be the solution to all of her problems or it might be her biggest mistake. 

As Gabe battles his aunt and cousin for control of the family business and Josie fears losing control of hers, can two people already living overfull lives find room for each other? Will a marriage of convenience born from lies and blackmail transform their former friendship into a marriage of true love forever or create a smoldering wreck?

Josie is the first standalone novel in the Betting on Paris series. If you like a friends-to-lover, marriage of convenience romance, then you’ll enjoy this  small-town love story.
