Book 1: Stratagem [Scomiche]
They are rivals in the music industry, with a bitter history between them. However, in the face of an anti-gay rights movement gaining momentum in England, same-sex marriage needs all the positive press it can get. And so Tyler and Esther, Mitch and Scott's respective managers, come up with a plan.
An engagement, fake of course, which will take place during the run-up to the election and the subsequent vote for/against the same-sex marriage bill. Their rivalry will only serve in their favour, the masses no doubt falling for the love-turned-hate romance, and they can break off the engagement once the bill is passed, whether it be a quiet mutual breakup or a massively angry affair.
Now all Esther and Tyler need to do is persuade them to sign the contract.
