Glass-doll beauty. A shy, proper smile. Georgette Montgomery is the perfect billionaire’s
fiancé.

Or she would be, if she existed.

A dark past. A smile that hides everything. At nineteen, Rae Grove escapes her disaster 
life by pretending to be other people—specifically, whoever the man paying her that 
night wants her to be.

Until she’s offered enough money for a one-way ticket to a better life. All she has to do is 
fly to Paris and pretend to be the fiancĂ© of young business tycoon Cohen Ashworth for 
one month. Within an hour of meeting Cohen, Rae knows three things about him:

1. He hates everyone and everything.

2. He has abundant wit and a knife-sharp tongue.

3. He uses 2 to make everyone aware of 1.

Before long, Rae’s determined to crack open his unbreakable shell. Cohen’s determined 
to stay unbroken. 

But no one escapes unscathed when two opposite worlds collide.




Excerpt:
“So you want me to change.” His jaw is taut.

“You need to change, or you’re not going to get what you want,” I say. He needs to hear 

it. “And you’re going to be miserable your whole life—”

“I don’t know how to change!” he says loudly.

I stop, half-expecting the divider separating us from the driver to roll down, but it 
doesn’t. We’re still alone in the backseat. I should be afraid, should be recoiling the way 
I do whenever a man raises his voice to me. But when I reach for the fear, I don’t find it. 

All I find is…pity?

“I know what I am. What I’m like.” His voice cracks, just slightly, but he masters it. “If I 
could be different, I would. Do you understand that? I’m not like you. I can’t slip on 
someone else’s persona like changing my clothes.”

That stupid twinge of pity turns into a full-fledged needle. I’m very familiar with that 
shadow in his voice, because it’s been in my heart for years. Self-loathing. At least I can 
escape myself by being other people. He doesn’t even have that luxury.

Stop it, Rae. Don’t you dare feel sorry for him. He has everything you’ve ever wanted, 
remember?

“That’s bullshit,” I say bluntly. “You can change. Anyone can change.”

“Show me.”

“What?”

He turns his full gaze directly on me, and I lose myself for a brief second in those ice 
eyes. “Show me how to be someone else. You do it so easily. You’re getting paid 
enough, I might as well get some use out of you.”

“You mean like…give you niceness lessons?”

He grimaces. “I’d rather we didn’t call it that.”

“Well…” I hesitate.

“Please,” he says emotionlessly. And if I had to bet on it, I’d say it was damn near the 
first time that word had passed through those perfect lips.

L.A. Rose recently made it out of college alive and with an English degree. She's a 
habitual beach bum, a cuteness aficionado, and a not-quite-recovered romance addict. 

She's a big believer in laughter as medicine and steaminess as...more medicine. You can 
never have enough medicine. Icy Pretty Love is her third New Adult standalone.
