  • matter of chance

    matter of chance by Kate Clayborn is $1.99 and a daily Kindle deal! If you bought the previous book in the series when it was on sale, you can now buy the next one! This one has haters getting into a fake relationship, which is all sorts of my catnip. Can I read this messy?

    Buying a lottery ticket with her two best friends didn’t change Zoe’s life. Just following her heart would do that…

    Sure, winning the lottery allows Zoe Ferris to quit her job as a ruthless corporate attorney, but no amount of cash will clear her conscience about how her firm treated the O’Leary family in a wrongful death case. So she sets out to make things right, only to discover that gruff and grieving Aiden O’Leary doesn’t need, or want, her apology. He, however, needs something more from her. Something that Zoe is more than willing to give, if only to ease the pain in her heart, a sadness that she sees reflected in his eyes…

    Aiden doesn’t know what possesses him to ask his family’s enemy to be his fake fiancée. But he needs a girlfriend if he hopes to be the winning bid at the camp he wants to buy as part of his beloved brother’s legacy. An expert in the art of deception, the cool beauty certainly fits the bill. Only Aiden wasn’t expecting all the humor and heart that Zoe brings to their partnership, or the desire that unites them deeply. He is now wrestling with his own dark truth: that he is falling in love with the very woman he swore never to forgive.

With her young daughter in tow, Frances rents a house in Belgravia and prepares to welcome her sister, Lily, who arrives from New York for her first season in London.
