He bet on logic. She bet on love.
Romance author Seven Michaels believes in love to her very core. She has to--not only for herself, but for her readers. So when luxury salesman Blake Turner insults not only her books but the people who read them, Seven's ready to throw down. How dare a playboy like Blake insinuate romance lovers are full of crap?
He wants proof? Fine. She bets Blake she can make him fall for her by using the rules in her latest novel before the end of the convention, or she'll denounce love in front of all her fellow authors and fans at the Romance Lovers Convention ball. A dangerous game to be sure, but humiliating Blake is worth the risk.
But when Seven realizes she's the one who's being seduced, she's no longer sure who is playing whom...or whether she'll have a career when the bet is over.
This was a fairly short read, but it was super cute. It should be enjoyable for all the fangirls who like to hit the romance conventions and book signings. And seeing as the RT Convention is in Vegas for 2016, this is a great little fantasy romance situation that we can all hope for in the new year!
Rule 1. Kiss him like it's the first time, every time.
Sevennah Michaels is a bestselling romance author attending one of the conventions in Vegas, and she is being followed around by a very eager (and creepy) male fan. As the elevator door opens and she sees the yummy Blake Turner, she throws herself into his arms playing the old fake boyfriend trick to get rid of the creeper. Such is the meeting between our H/h for Seducing Seven.
Rule 6. Maintain an air of mystery.
The deal of the story is that Sevennah must make the cynical Blake have feelings for her before the end of the conference. So you know right off the bat you are in for a dose of insta-love and can prepare for it. But this was such a fun premise based on the things that we romance readers like to do at conferences, that I didn't mind the insta-love. In fact, I will be looking for my own Blake at RT next year to see if I can put some of Seven's Rules of Seduction into play!
Rule 7. Always leave him wanting more.
If you are looking for something light and fun that plays on your interests as a romance reader, you should enjoy this novella. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
