Seven Day Fiance by Rachel Harris Review and Giveaway

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 really enjoyed this fun, quirky story. It’s a quick sweet read, so if that’s what you are looking for, definitely pick this up.

After Angelle’s boyfriend publically proposes in front of the entire town and she says no, she leaves town and sets out to discover herself. She lands in the town of Magnolia Springs where she makes some great friends. She also gets a job working with horses and is also a volunteer firefighter. The only thing lacking in her life is a man, but she isn’t looking for one. Even though she isn’t looking doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a serious attraction to Can Robicheaux. Not only is his name hot, but good gracious, the man had dark hair AND dimples! Add that he is a successful business owner, plays guitar and sings, and is fierce and protective of the women in his life and who won’t be a goner?

Everything is going great for Angelle, but for one tiny problem. She has lied to her family about having a fiancé in order to get them off her back. She is expected to bring him home for Thanksgiving. Cue a hot male auction where she wins Cane. He agrees to be her fake fiancé for the week and go home with her. He is also attracted to her and would like to get her “out of his system.”

I found Angelle endearing. She is sweet, shy, a bit sassy when you get to know her, and is learning how to come out of her shell. This is a woman who has been sheltered her whole life and has always gone along with what everyone has planned for her. I really enjoyed reading about her coming into her own.

Cane is another great character. There is so much more to him than his tattoos and bad boy image. He is actually a bit of a nerd. I didn’t know that meshing bad boy and nerd could work, but in this case, it so does. Like Angelle, he also has a bit of self-discovery to go through.

When the duo finally meets up with Angelle’s family, the story gets even more fun. They are country Cajun and they are definitely a lively bunch. But, beneath all of their quick, fun banter and celebrating, love is at the core of this family. Although they want Angie to stay the baby in the family forever, they are going to have to come to grips that she has grown up.

This book isn’t all about fun, though. The characters hit a rough patch in the story. They will have to learn to move through it together or fall apart. As I said, this is a quick read. I read it in less than a day. It should definitely be add to your TBR.

Rachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, where she watched soap operas with her grandmother and stayed up late sneak reading her mama’s favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up way too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.

When not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, she homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches reality television with her amazing husband. Taste The Heat is her adult romance debut. She’s the author of MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY and A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES. She loves hearing from readers! To connect with the author, check out the following links:
