It's no secret that I hate Phineas Yates, but what most people don't know is that I have a very good reason why. One hot summer, he broke my heart in the worst way, and I promised myself then and there that I would never fall prey to the sinner of Pembroke Prep again. Even if it meant re-inventing myself into a girl I barely recognized.

There is a fine line between duty and desire.

I'm not just any girl, I'm a princess. When my family begs me to get engaged to save the family name, I'm trapped with no way out. In a panic, I blurt out the ultimate lie and create myself a fake boyfriend. Which means I need someone to foot the bill immediately.

The problem? The only person willing to help me is the one person I never want to see again: the careless, heartless, hot-as-Hellfire playboy himself.

Phineas Yates.

The even bigger problem? His help doesn't come for free. And this sinner won't be satisfied with anything less than my absolute ruin.




"Come on, princess. I think you remember that you liked kissing me."
"Fuck you, Phineas."
"Yes, yes. You keep saying that, and we'll get to that. But you know, kissing first. I love to kiss. Goddamn, it's one of my favorite things. It's like dancing. Learning the rhythm. I bet if you give me half the chance, I can make you come just with my kisses."
I couldn't help it, I swallowed hard at the thought. I bet he could. But how did he get so good at it?
Lots and lots of practice.
Yes, I had to focus on that.
Phineas tsked. "Uh-uh, Aurora, don't do that. Focus on my voice. I know you remember kissing me. I know you liked it. When has anyone else kissed you so good?"
I opened my mouth to argue. I really did. But he was right. And he knew it, goddamn it. "I'm not having this conversation with you."
"Yeah, you are." He leaned in, placing a light kiss at my temple. My body practically seized. It wasn't my fault that I had leaned into him. It wasn't my fault that I practically moaned as he trailed kisses along my jaw.
"Phineas, I don't like you."
"Sure. Tell me to stop."
I knew if I told him to stop, he would. He would back off and not kiss me again. I opened my mouth to say the words. I really did. But then he was kissing along my jaw and whispering, "All you have to do is say one word, and this ends."
And I just couldn't say the words. My stupid heart jammed them all up somewhere in my chest. Because as much as I hated him, as much as he'd hurt me over the last couple of years, I still wanted Phineas Yates. I detested him, and if he was on fire, chances were I wouldn't let anyone put him out.
But we were so close, and I could hear that growl at the back of his throat, telling me how much he wanted me, just me. Not Princess Aurora. Not Lennox's sister. Just me.
I wanted to lean into it so bad.
"I will be your boyfriend. I'll pretend for you. Don't you know by now I'll do anything to have you?"
There was a hint of something hungry in there. Something I didn't want to think about. So I shoved it away. I pushed it so hard, sank it back down, and then stomped my feet on it, making sure that it was dead because I wasn't going to think about him being hungry for me.
Him wanting me.
"Tell me to stop, Aurora, or I'm going to kiss you for real. Make me stop. Give me a reason."
