Synopsis: One bad boy. One good girl. One unforgettable week.
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 him 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 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.
Angelle, Cane… welcome and thanks for chatting with me today. I’m very excited to find a few things about your story. So, how about we get started?
First impressions are always interesting to me; can you each tell us three things about the other that went through your mind during that first time you met?
Angelle: My first thought was, “Holy molasses, dimples!”
Cane: *grins, flashing said dimples* And after watching her trip over her own two feet and then apologize to the floor, I just knew I had to make her mine.
This question is for you Angelle, how the heck did you end up in this situation in the first place?
Angelle: Because I don’t always think before I talk? I wanted to start over, live my own life, but I didn’t want to hurt anyone I left behind. I knew my mama was worried about me, and I was trying to help her see that I’d moved on—I also have a short fuse sometimes and the constant reminders of my ex just got to be too much. So I opened my mouth to tell her again that I was fine, and out tumbled my mythical fiancé. Truly, only I could wind up in such a pickle.
And Cane, what did you think of Angelle’s “proposition” when she first asked you to help her out?
Cane: I thought my hellcat had lost her mind. I was confident that I’d agree to anything this sexy woman would ask, but she definitely threw me with that one.
How was meeting her family Cane and Angelle, did he pull things off? Or were you at all worried?
Angelle: He did great! I was a nervous wreck, and every time someone asked us something “couple-y” or caught us in our ruse, I’d silently freak. But Cane never flinched. Not even when Troy and Daddy gave him the third degree.
Cane: Oh, I was shaking a bit in my city-boy kicks, but I knew where they were coming from. I respected it. If either of my sisters brought a guy like me home out of nowhere, I’d be just as protective. Probably even worse.
Was there a time during your seven days that you thought someone had found you out? And what was the hardest part in making people believe you were engaged?
Angelle: Good gosh, yes! Cane always says I would lose my ass if I ever tried to play poker, and he’s right. I suck at lying. He hates it, too, and I felt horrible for putting him in this position, but he always came through for me…either by coming up with a beautiful backstory or deflecting attention from the question. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in crime. Especially considering the ending.
Cane: I don’t know if any part of the ruse was harder than another, but I can tell you what was easiest—the chemistry. We’ve always had that. It was no hardship kissing this woman, or making it appear as though we were hot for each other. We were and still are.
Since everyone’s just recently had a chance to read your story, what do you think of it being out there for the world?
Angelle: *blushes* It’s a bit surreal. And embarrassing, considering you get to read about all my fabulous screw-ups. But I’m proud of our story. As long as it led me to the same ending, I’m glad to share it with the world. As long as I don’t have to share him.
Cane: The cat’s out of the bag about my nerd-flag, but other than that, I’m cool with it. This woman means everything to me and if sharing our story makes her happy, than I’m good.
This question is for both of you - without giving too much away, looking back on things, if you could go back and have a do over of one thing what would that be and how would you change it?
Angelle: You know, I don’t have regrets. I left Bon Terre wanting to take chances, and in the end, I took a huge one. We had bumps and bruises along the way, but in the end, I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. All those mistakes and hiccups led to that ending, and who knows what else would change if we altered one part of it.
Cane: What she said.
Guys, it’s been fun having you here. Loved getting a chance to chat with you! Congrats on your story!
Angelle: Thanks so much for having us, Lisa.
Cane: It’s been our pleasure, darlin’.
Angelle: *rolls her eyes and laughs* Lord, you’re such a flirt!
Cane: *leans in, brushes his nose against hers, and then kisses her lips* Maybe, but I’m going home with you.
