Laura Heffernan writes fun, witty romantic comedies and more serious women's fiction. After a few years of practicing law, she realized that she much preferred arguing with her characters rather than other people. It's easier to win that way.
When not watching total strangers get married, drag racing queens, or cooking competitions, Laura enjoys board games, travel, board games, baking, and board games. She lives in the northeast with her husband, the world's most active toddler, and two furry little beasts.
One problem: who is going to believe the gorgeous, brilliant investment banker fell for little Lila? Everyone, if they have any say in it. Not even their closest friends or family can suspect the truth. Lila fakes the walk of shame, feigns total surprise at Pierre's staged public proposal, and plans their wedding with a single-minded determination rivaled only by a Yorkie begging for treats.
Their staged relationship is so perfect, Lila starts to believe it’s real. Then Pierre’s brother drops a bombshell: they are royalty, princes to a tiny island nation, and Lila isn’t princess material. Now, instead of studs and sandpaper, Lila finds herself worrying about titles and tiaras. Will Lila get her happily ever after, or will her prince decide she's not so charming after all?
