Matt is in a huge high stakes poker game! He starts to think his luck is running out when he suddenly wins the entire pot only to find out the other main player can't pay Matt the money that he just won! So a deal is struck! The old man has given Matt his daughter for one week. During the upcoming week she is to return to his ranch in Texas with him and pretend to be his fiancée (to make his ailing grandmother happy). Trouble is Cassandra is 1) livid with both her dad and Matt and in no mood to play nice 2) she's set to marry Jeff in two weeks and has no time for a week in Texas and 3) she doesn't appear to be able to stand to be around Matt so how can they possibly pull off this deception in front of his grandmother!
This story is Laugh out loud funny at times and heartwarmingly tender at others! Both Matt and Cassandra have suffered a lot growing up, have overcome a lot and seem to have such high hopes for their respective futures. But first they just need to get through one measly week without killing each other! But can they? I can't recommend this novella highly enough - it's so worth 1-clicking then snuggling up on the couch to just get lost in and ENJOY!
From the Author
I had a lot of fun writing about Matt and Cassandra. Both have type 'A' personalities and it causes plenty of friction, but at the same time they are warm and caring and only want to do the best they can for their families; even if it means posing as a couple!
This is a funny, heartwarming romance that will leave you smiling.

What these two go through over the next few days is a tale that shouldn't be missed. This two are highly attracted to each other. Poor Cassandra though, she struggles to stay faithful to her fiance against the highly alluring Matt. Matt on the other hand is struggling to come to terms that he is falling in love with a woman who is forbidden to him.
The story was very well written and flowed nicely. I adored the way the story was written. Not only were the POVs of the two main characters given, but several of the secondary characters as well. I was just sorry to see the story end.
This is a sweet, clean romance. I highly recommend this one to anyone who loves horses, a strong heroine and a cowboy gambler.
Character Development - there was none. Cassandra's background? Wait! What? Background? There was none. Her history started when she was watching the stairs leading to a private gambling room where her POS father was gambling away her wedding ring and would then make a deal of HER because he was a cheat. Nothing else was said about her, that was it. We are to glean from the scene that she's an enabler who allows him to do this often, since she mentions his penchant for gambling, but we really don't see any of that developed. And Matt is the same way, although we at least get a little history by way of his family.
The plot? Well, the trope is old and weather-worn at this point. A fake fiance' is old hat and I'm looking forward to the day when authors can think of more realistic and a bit more exciting plot lines to follow.
This was like hearing somebody tell a story at the kitchen table. You hear the story, saw awww a few times, but then at the end, you realize that you know nothing except the basics about either person, and you only know they live happily ever after. I know that according to the RWA there has to be a happy ending, but I don't think they meant one that was contrived.
