Waterstones Says

A modern-day marriage of convenience between Tansy and Gemma leads both their lives into unexpectedly happy but turbulent waters in Bellefleur’s beautiful queer romcom brimming with delicious dialogue and characters to root for.

'Marry me and no one has to know none of this was real'

Tansy's greatest love is her family's bookstore. But when it comes to actual romance, she can't get past the first chapter.

Tired of questions about her love life, she invents a fake girlfriend, inspired by the stunning cover model on a bestselling book. But when the real-life Gemma crosses Tansy's path, her white lie nearly implodes.

Gemma is a wild child, the outcast of her wealthy family, and now the latest heir to Van Dalen Publishing. But the title comes with one tiny condition: she must be married in order to inherit.

When Gemma discovers a beautiful stranger has been pretending to date her for months, she decides to take the charade one step further - and announces their engagement.

But as Tansy and Gemma play the role of affectionate fiancees, unexpected sparks start to fly and suddenly the line between convenient arrangement and real feelings begins to blur . . . But the scheming Van Dalen family won't give up the company without a fight, and Gemma and Tansy's newfound happiness might just get caught in the fallout.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Alexandria Bellefleur powers this fake dating masterpiece with boatloads of heart and the result is perhaps her most divine tale yet - Buzzfeed

Outrageously clever and unbearably sexy, The Fiancée Farce is the sapphic romance of my dreams. Like every Alexandria Bellefleur book, I was hooked from page one and couldn't put it down. With delicious prose and gripping storytelling, Bellefleur is a rom-com master, and I'll read anything she writes - Mazey Eddings

Alexandria Bellefleur has gifted us with a gorgeously bright and vivacious romance in The Fiancée Farce - bringing together a beauty and a wallflower, a marriage of convenience, and intensely sexy, swoony, sapphic vibes - Sierra Simone

The Fiancée Farce is romcom at its absolute finest. A down on her luck heroine who invents a fake girlfriend? A fake girlfriend who turns up looking for a marriage of convenience to land her inheritance? Set the whole thing in a cozy bookstore? Alexandria Bellefleur delivers funny, sexy, romance reader catnip. No notes - Sarah MacLean

This zippy Sapphic rom-com from Bellefleur features slow-burn romance, a steamy marriage-of-convenience, and a profusion of Taylor Swift references. . . Bellefleur's snappy prose is perfect for the banter between Tansy and Gemma, and it's delightful to watch the tension build between them. . . deeply satisfying - Publishers Weekly

Written with a surfeit of quippy wit and graced with a delightfully quirky constellation of supporting characters, Lambda Literary Award winner Bellefleur's fun, fresh take on the marriage of convenience trope delivers all the romantically swoon-worthy moments and steamy chemistry romance readers crave - Booklist

“Wonderful”

I loved this so much. This is now my third Alexandria Bellefleur book (my library doesn’t have Hang the Moon so I need to get on that asap) and is 100% my favourite. The way that Gemma and Tansy communicate throughout... More

“Delightful!”

A perfectly easy-to-read Sapphic romance, it was delightful to read the present tropes; fake dating and marriage of convenience in a queer context. I felt like I finally had the book I needed at 16, granted this is a... More

“A somewhat steamy sapphic read that you can fly through in an afternoon.”

Working at her family's bookshop, when Tansy makes up a fake girlfriend she jumps to the first thing she sees - the model on the cover of the nearest bestseller. Little does she know that said model (Gemma), will... More
