Fiance by Friday by Catharine Bybee

Author: Catherine Bybee
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Date of publication: August 2013

Gwen Harrison:
The beautiful, high-born daughter of an English duke came to America to take over her sister-in-law’s matchmaking business. But just because she’s the boss doesn’t mean she can’t fantasize about making her own perfect match with bodyguard Neil MacBain. Will the enigmatic man who haunts her dreams cost her more than she bargained for?

Neil MacBain:
The retired Marine can’t deny the effect blue-blooded Gwen has on his troubled soul or his battle-hardened body. But as a client, Gwen is off-limits—until a threat from Neil’s past returns…and Gwen is caught in the crossfire. Now to keep her safe he will risk it all: his career, his life…and his heart.

Fiance by Friday is the third in the Weekday Brides series.  I have been enjoying this series so far.  This installment was no exception.  Gwen has moved to America and taken over Alliance, an exclusive matchmaking firm.  Neil is her brother's bodyguard and security expert.  Gwen has known him for years and has also lusted after him for years.  Someone from Neil's past is trying to kill him and Gwen is put in danger because of it.  

I thought this was a good romance.  I liked Gwen and Neil.  He fights his attraction to her for so long and it was fun to watching him finally give in.  I enjoyed  them together because they had known each other for a while.  I like friends to lovers stories as you all know, so that made me enjoy this one even more.  This was definitely more a romantic suspense than a straight contemporary.  They have to go on the run for a while to hide from the  threat.  I was surprised at who the bad guy turned out to be.  There were also some very tense moments that added to the suspense.  

I highly recommend this series.  I have the next one, Single by Saturday on my MP3 player ready to go! So keep your eyes out for a review soon.
