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.

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**
Seven Michaels walks into a Vegas casino for a writer's conference and is immediately greeted by an overzealous fan set out to prove that they would be perfect together. While Seven waits outside the elevators she tries to come up with a way to save herself a weekend of dodging this guy. Then the elevator doors part and there stands Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome, Blake Turner. Seven immediately goes up to him (praying he will play along) and declares him her boyfriend. After her overzealous fan leaves, Blake begins to insult her belief in love and calls her a fraud for pushing the belief of true love on her readers. Shocked and pissed off, Seven bets Blake that she can seduce a man, using the seven rules that her heroine used in her recent book. Blake ups the ante by saying he gets to choose the man: himself. Blake thinks this will be a piece of cake, but he underestimates the power of romance, love and Seven herself. I liked this book, I just felt that the romance was rushed. They arrive in Vegas on a Friday and leave sometime Sunday, with each being there for work. The only guaranteed time they spend together is meals (it's part of the terms of the bet). I liked the characters, I just wish they were there for more time (like a week). Rating: 3.5 out of 5
