Scambitious: The Complete Series (new cover!)
Finally got around to putting this together, but here it is…my Young and Scambitious set of short stories, now published as Scambitious: The Complete Series.
Scambitious: The Complete Series
Jane likes to pretend to be other people. Don’t trust her with your money, your things, or your heart.
YOUNG AND SCAMBITIOUS…Who is Elizabeth Madrid, exactly? She’s Manila’s latest It Girl—stylish, staple of the club scene, new best friend of famous-for-being-famous Chrysalis Magnolia. She’s also a jewelry clan heiress, a former model, an Ivy Leaguer… except no one actually knew of her until last year.
PROPERLY SCANDALOUS…How are society girl Elizabeth Madrid and young actress Truffles Marquez connected? Not in any way Truffles is aware of, until a government official with a very specific crush unwittingly becomes the next mark for society scammer Jane del Mundo and the gang.
SHINY AND SHAMELESS…It does seem strange that Jane del Mundo has been living in Manila, pretending to be socialite “Elizabeth Madrid,” for this long. You’d think something was keeping her there. Maybe a warped sense of obligation to her mother’s con artist friend. An unhealthy physical attraction to fellow high-class thief Gabriel. Or maybe, because she’s still on the job, working on one last big score.
GREEDY AND GULLIBLE…It’s the season to exercise the right to choose, when Manila’s powerful are at their most paranoid and reckless. You know what? Seems like the perfect time for a former fake socialite to visit and catch up with old friends.
This edition compiles all four Scambitious stories into one book. Stories must be read in order. 42,900 words.
The covers for the Scambitious series have always been a fun collab with Alex Lapa, and we were able to continue this with her through an actual #RomanceClassCovers shoot! The cover was designed by Tania Arpa, and photographed by Chi Yu Rodriguez.
