Juliet Montague desperately wants to be a part of Kendra's posh clique and being invited to her party at the luxurious Chatsfield hotel is more than Juliet could hope for. Not wanting to feel out of place Juliet tells a small white lie but it quickly snowballs into a comedic turn of events. Now Juliet must rely on her friend Marcus to keep up the appearance of them being engaged for the weekend or both of their reputations could be damaged. This is the prequel to The Chatsfield continuity series, it can also be read as a stand alone.
Engaged At The Chatsfield is a short story that introduces The Chatsfield series from Harlequin Presents. I enjoyed reading the story, its lively prose keeps the tone light and engaging. It was amusing how each small lie led to more drama.
I liked the setting of the Chatsfield hotel and it was fun to see glimpses of the characters that will be in future books. Both the main characters were likeable and I liked how their romance was allowed to gradually develop despite the strange course of events. The ending was abrupt though it hints at the course the couple will take. I wish the story had been longer because I enjoyed reading it so much but it made me excited to continue reading The Chatsfield series.
