Second Prize

Second Prize

Dashing, dishy and utterly uninterested. No one else can compete.

Lara Fenton is obsessed with finding a man, especially since her best friend Julie got engaged. Salvation soon arrives in the divine form of Hugh Armstrong-Hamilton.

Yes, Hugh has his faults, but who doesn’t? So what if he never picks up the bill? Big deal if he cancels dates at the last moment. And who cares about a few insults from his snooty friends? Hugh is a god – her god, and any other man would seem like second prize in comparison. Or would they . . .?
