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 fiancé 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”
After reading the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series, I fell in love with Rachel Harris. Not only is she an excellent writer, but she is also very sweet and happily chats with us lowly bloggers on Twitter which never fails to make me feel special. When I saw that she released a new book, I immediately begged for and received a copy from her publicist. I did a serious happy dance when I saw the email come through with my copy attached and immediately dove in.
Angelle bids on Cain during a bachelor charity auction and wins a date with the King of Abs. Instead of a simple date, she propositions Cain to pretend to be her fiancé and go to her hometown for Thanksgiving.
By the time I started reading, there was quite a bit of Twitter rumblings already about the handsome and charming Cain which immediately peaked my interest. It didn’t take long to find out what all the fuss was about. Rachel did an amazing job crafting a sex pot of a man that was not only physically alluring but also a genuinely nice guy. After having read several of Rachel’s books, I find she is consistently very good at crafting balanced characters that have a mix of both flaws and strengths. Characters that are very entertaining while still believable. Not too perfect, not too flawed. Angelle and Cain are both such characters.
Angelle’s hometown is full of southern charm, a setting I have really been loving lately. It makes me want to listen to country music, watch Hart of Dixie, and go road tripping. The close knit southern family provides for some interesting drama and fun scenes (like Cracklin’ Cook Offs) that were very entertaining to read.
Rachel writes solid love stories that are “cozy, take a break from life, and just curl up and read” type books. While not super original or page-turningly dramatic, Seven Day Fiancé is a great feel good story that would be perfectly enjoyed on the couch, under a throw blanket, with a cup of tea.
Also, if you are new to Rachel Harris, be sure to check out the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century books. They are some of of the best young adult novels I have ever read. A great Christmas present if you have any teens on your list.
Seven Day Fiance comes out today - October 14th!
