This metanovella introduces Jane Sparks—a librarian who wants to write romance novels and in fact ends up writing The Wicked Wallflower (a historical romance in Rodale's "Bad Boys & Wallflowers" series)—and billionaire Duke Austen. Jane is still recovering from the loss of her longtime boyfriend and is trying to force herself to relax and have some fun at a party. The fun leads her into an accidental engagement with dot-com billionaire Duke. When their engagement is announced on Facebook, Jane is appalled, but Duke is thrilled. His bad-boy reputation is threatening his latest attempt at going public with a technology company. Potential investors are put off by his partying lifestyle and the impact it has on his productivity. Getting engaged to "good girl" Jane will prove that Duke is settling down and get him the venture capital he needs.
VERDICT This is truly an introduction to Jane and Duke, whose story will continue in another print volume, but Rodale uses the short form well in setting up their romance.
