Title: The Bad Boy Billionaire's Wicked Arrangement
(This is the contemporary version of The Wicked Wallflower .)
The first installment of a sexy, whirlwind romance about a modern day heroine writing historical romance novels based on her romantic misadventures with the bad boy billionaire.
Jane Sparks has accidentally announced her engagement on Facebook—to the infamous Bad Boy Billionaire, Duke Austen. As soon as it’s discovered that Jane and Duke barely know each other (One hot kiss at a party does not a relationship make), she’ll be humiliated. And then Duke does something Jane never expected. He plays along with her charade.
With his hard partying, playboy reputation jeopardizing a fifty million dollar investment deal, Duke realizes an engagement with the hot but oh-so-proper librarian could be just the thing to repair his reputation. This good girl tempts him to be very wicked…but just with her. It’s unprecedented. Inconceivable. Totally alluring.
As the unlikely match of librarian and tech entrepreneur set out to convince the world—and the internet—that their love is real, something unexpected happens: they start falling for each other. But Jane is secretly writing a historical romance novel that could expose their carefully constructed romance…unless two perfect strangers are content to be perfectly scandalous together.

The first installment of the Bad Boy series is an intriguing contemporary novella set in the fast paced modern world of social media.
Jane Sparks, a quiet, reserved and oh so proper librarian finds herself engaged to the bad boy billionaire Duke Austen after she accidentally announces she is engaged to him on Facebook. She’s sure that it will come out and everyone will know that she doesn’t even really know him and she will be humiliated. But Duke goes along with the charade, he’s sure that the engagement will help repair his oh so bad boy reputation and help him secure his fifty million dollar investment deal.
This quick and short fast paced plot if full of laughter, suspense and romance that grabs the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go. The author brings the story to life with wonderful compelling characters, some snarky and very modern dialogue. The reader can’t help be drawn into the story as they can’t wait to see what will happen next. The attraction between Jane and Duke radiates heat from every page and intrigue as they seem to be a very unlikely couple.
The author has created a fascinating romance that is very enjoyable, and while she ends it an opportune moment, you know the story is not over. I really wish I didn’t have to wait for the next installment.
