Seven Days to Texas

With a name like Nick Dartmouth, and the fortune it comes with, it's hard not to have a reputation for getting everything you want. So when his former secretary steps onto his foundation's charity auction block, Nick has the perfect opportunity to woo the stunning beauty from Texas. But aggressive counterbids force him to make an extreme proposition. Except money itself doesn't guarantee a blissful ride off into the sunset, especially when being won goes against the willful nature of McCall Johnson. Intent on showing Nick they come from two very different--and incompatible--worlds, she's surprised by how well he can handle a horse. For a girl from Texas, that speaks volumes about a man's value. Maybe there's more to this playboy than she expected. . .

It's unfortunate that I spent money to read this. Writing, characters, and plot left much to be desired. At its best, the book was cringe-worthy and campy; at its worst, it was melodramatic and flat. If you're looking for a light, fun read, I'd highly suggest passing on this book.

the author's bio says she's a native Texan but I can't believe people talk the way she wrote her characters--it was one cliche after another. it sounded like a Yankee's bad idea of what they thought someone from the South would say. also, the plot was all over the place with no warning like when they were driving along and she supposedly sees a woman who turns out to be a ghost. several pages are devoted to this with no apparent purpose because it is dropped later. this one is being deleted from my library.

Good effort could have used a bit more character development was a bit confusing in the beginning. Characters trust issues got a bit worn but understandable considering what she had been through. Light easy read but feel it wasnt quite done...

This book was very, very bad. 200 pages. So boring, I skipped ahead and read the ending, so I could tell myself, I finished it. Very poorly conceived. Same ole, same ole. Disagreeable characters. Adult themes. A truely, rotten romance. AD

Light-hearted love story and Texas brand of humor. Likeable, sassy main character. Fun read for those who like sweet romances.

Pure Enjoyment! Texas Sass and Class! I loved the premise of this story. A rich tycoon who gets taken down a notch by a savvy Texas secretary who appears to be nothing more than a girl working for a living. Their lively banter sparkles throughout the book and the sparks ignite a sizzling romance.Ms. Miranda gets them together on the first page and lets the fun begin with a charity auction in which the tycoon wins the secretary. Turns out the tycoon has had a thing for her for a while but never acted on it. He's never thought they had much in common and they definitely didn't travel in the same circles. But when the rather "plain" woman turns into a ravishing beauty at the auction he sees her in a completely different light. This is a fun, entertaining read that is perfect for the beach or for moments when you simply want to unwind from a busy day. This first full length attempt by Ms. Miranda hits a home run. I look forward to other releases by her.

If you are going to pretend to attempt a plot, don't skip through every. single. scene. At least flesh out one full conversation without distrating the reader every two seconds with pointless babble. And I thought Gina Schowalter was the worst one out there...

If you like Hallmark movies you will like this book, if you don't then don't bother reading it. As my headline says "silliness".

But certainly no where near the best. Thankful I got this on a Free Friday. I was so bored with this book that I skipped large parts and skimmed others. I can't even tell you all the things I disliked. Willing to give the author another try but only if it's another free book.

I would have like the story line better if it were a little more in depth.  At some of the best parts the story had no back ground to support it.  The idea is good, the writing could have been better.

This story was ok but I kept feeling like it was missing something. The sexual tension was there but that is about it. It also would have received more stars if the author didn't constantly repeat the characters thoughts. I got it the first time, I don't need to be reminded every chapter. I also got very tired of the goofy, cow-poke, Texan phrasology. 200 pages

Boring. Skipped a good deal because it was so dry. Usually like romances, but this one was just too stupid to be believed. Totally unbelivable plot line. Would not recommend this at all.

What I liked about this book is, I was able to just zone out. I read about a dozen books a week and sometimes I don't want to do heavy reading and thinking and trying figure things out. I just want to rest and amuse my brain and this book fills this need nicely. A quick fun book and no this book won't change the world but it will keep you relaxed and diverted for awhile which is all it needed to do.

Good story. The main female lead was a head case. The story was A little predictable and tacky, but a feel good quick read.

Terrible writing. Would have been a fairly good story if all the crapoy slang had been left out. Hard to read all the "derns" throughout. Plot not bad. All in all happy it was free
