Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.
Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn’t do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn’t expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Seven Day Fiance is just the kind of sweet and simple romance I’ve been in the mood for lately. The premise may be common, but the execution is exquisite. Harris has done it again, making me fall for the clueless, yet sweet hottie, Cane. And she’s even got me rooting for Angelle, who is all about becoming a stronger, independent female who goes after what she wants in life. I also loved seeing the characters from the first book in the series, Taste the Heat. I hope Sherry gets her own book!

Cane was just amazing. Sure, the guy has a major slip along the way that had me shaking my head, but the guy more than makes up for it before and afterwards. The dude can cook, plays guitar and sings, has tattoos, and he’s one sexy beast in the sack. What’s not to love? Also? Any man who is amazing with kids is always a plus with me! He’s one of those guys who have that mindset of staying detached from women, but he’s also very sweet and doesn’t play games, he’s very careful about how he interacts with Angelle, despite their obvious attraction, and I really liked how everything played out.

I have yet to be disappointed by anything Rachel writes and I doubt I ever will. She writes engaging and entertaining plots with realistic and lovable characters. Another plus? I really loved the Cajun aspect of this book, this series in general, and it’s pretty cool getting to know the culture, the food, and the people. This one is a winner, for sure!

About Rachel Harris

I write humorous love stories about sassy girls-next-door who occasionally stumble through life (and relationships), and the protective men who cherish them. Vibrant settings, humor, and strong relationships are a staple of my books. And kissing. Lots of kissing.

I love to read for the escape it provides and that’s what I strive to give each of my readers. A chance to get away from the everyday routines and stress of dirty dishes, Mount Laundry, and rising bills, an opportunity to smile, laugh, swoon, and cry while you try on someone else’s skin for a few hours.

People often ask me about my tagline, “Unmask Your Inner Flirt.”

To me, flirt symbolizes the excitement of a new romance. The zing and tingles from the first touch. The anticipation of the first kiss. In my mind, it also embodies confidence. As for unmask, that references the sorts of stories I love to tell. I’m drawn to characters who hide their true selves, for any reason, and tend to believe we all sport different guises at various times in our lives, trying on personas and exploring new identities. A character’s journey from doing this to loving who they truly are, embracing their own unique brand of crazy, is a universal theme in my books.

What else should you know about me? Well, I’m an unashamed fan-girl and love supporting my fellow authors. I’m also a homeschool mom who spends her days giggling, hugging, and learning with her children. I watch way too much reality television and Netflix with my husband. And when it comes to my readers, I tend to slobber all over them.

Fact: Bookish people are the best people in the world.
