We are so excited to share the beautiful cover of Ruby Lang’s new novel Playing House, out August 12, 2019.
Introduction from Ruby:
In Playing House, the first novel of my new Uptown series revolving around Manhattan real estate, city planners Fay and Oliver let themselves lead the lives—and be with the person—they’ve always secretly wanted. Historic home tours and open houses in Manhattan become the backdrop of their pretend play. Exposed brick meets exposed emotions, walk-in closets open up closed-off feelings. And in life, as in real estate, they find themselves asking what they really want—and what they can truly afford.
About Playing House:
“Playing House is relatable, heartwarming, and oh so sexy. I zoomed through this thoughtful and joyful story about two people finding themselves and each other.” —Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Date and The Proposal
Romance blossoms between two city planners posing as newlyweds in this first in a bright new series by acclaimed author Ruby Lang
The last thing Oliver Huang expects to see on the historic Mount Morris home tour is longtime acquaintance Fay Liu bustling up and kissing him hello. He’s happy to playact being a couple to save her from a pushy admirer. Fay’s beautiful, successful and smart, and if he’s being honest, Oliver has always had a bit of a thing for her.
Maybe more than a bit.
Geeking out over architectural details is Oliver and Fay’s shared love language, and soon they’re touring pricey real estate across Upper Manhattan as the terribly faux but terribly charming couple Darling and Olly.
For the first time since being laid off from the job he loved, Oliver has something to look forward to. And for the first time since her divorce, Fay’s having fun.
Somewhere between the light-filled living rooms and spacious closets they’ve explored, this faux relationship just may have sparked some very real feelings. For Oliver and Fay, home truly is where their hearts are.
One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!
