Falling for Mr. Bingley

What do you do when you’re a contestant on a reality TV dating show and you find yourself falling for the presenter—not the bachelor?

Phoebe Wilson is a total romantic. As in she’s read Pride and Prejudice fifty-one times, her favorite movie scene is the boombox serenade in Say Anything, and she goes to sleep every night certain that one day she’ll meet her prince and get her happily ever after.

That’s why she entered the reality TV show, Dating Mr. Darcy. Everyone knows Mr. Darcy is the most romantic hero of all time, so the guy posing as him has got to be as close to perfect as any guy can get.

The only problem is it’s not Mr. Darcy who’s got Phoebe’s pulse rising. It’s his best friend, Johnathan Bentley a.k.a. Mr. Bingley, the show’s presenter. Not the bachelor.

Despite knowing she’s breaking the rules, Phoebe begins to snatch secret moments alone with Johnathan. But when someone discovers them, things begin to get complicated.

Secrets, lies, and blackmail. Will Phoebe and Johnathan’s love story survive?
