Lacey Reed jumps at the chance for independence with a career in the big city. But her naivety and ambition blind her to the lure of a blackmailer. With her savings gone, she has nowhere to turn when she literally runs into financier Connor Devlin.
Though dazzled by Lacey, Connor sees the desperation she tries to hide. His gut tells him to help, and he hires her as his fake fiancée. Now Lacey has a job, and Connor has put a bandage on a family crisis.
When the blackmailer ups the ante, Lacey resolves to face him down—no matter what the consequences. Does that mean Lacey will lose the only man who’s ever seen who she truly is?

She was blessed with beauty, cursed with naivety and determined to break free of her parental controls. Lacey Reed was going to the big city, using her beauty to make her mark in the modeling world, living wild and free, until one night, one huge mistake trusting in someone far more experienced, worldly and with the scruples of an amoeba turned her world into a nightmare. Lacey was being blackmailed and once again, her naivety sends her down a path of self-destruction with no end. She needs money, badly.
Enter Connor Devlin, savvy financier, good guy behind the scenes, a player in the limelight, a son looking to care for his mother without hurting her pride. They met at a wedding and Connor was intrigued by Lacey’s looks, then further by an underlying desperation and he has a plan to help them both out. Lacey needs a job, his mother needs a companion and what better way to bring them both together without Mom being any the wiser than to introduce Lacey as his fiancée, needing a place for some R&R?
Charlotte O’Shay brings two unlikely people together in a most heartwarming way in A MODEL ENGAGEMENT and creates a delightful escape into the world of romance! Admit it, we want to see two souls come together against all odds. We want both the damsel and the knight to come to each other’s rescue and Ms. O’Shay has done it!
Step away from reality and fall in love with this story in its simple design with sweet romantic embellishments. Who couldn’t love a hero who takes care of his Mom? Who couldn’t root for the girl who went a little crazy trying to live her own life, only to come back to her true self in the end? Mistakes be damned, and these two have made some, this is a wonderful and light read to enjoy! Part of a series, but definitely a standalone read, too!
