I admit it. I can be an author stalker. I recently ran across author Catherine Bybee and read her "Wife by Wednesday (Weekday Brides Series)" story (I think it was offered by my library & I grabbed it). I GOT **SUCKED IN**. I immediately looked to see if there were more "Weekday Bride Series" books. Then I read "Married by Monday (Weekday Brides Series)". Again. SUCKED IN. So can you just IMAGINE my scary excited-ness when I realized I had the possibility to read "Fiance by Friday (Weekday B ...more

Omg it was such a pleasure to get to read this book before it comes out. It has to be Catherine's finest work so far and that's saying a lot being as I love all her others so very much. It took me on the best ride any book has taken me on and had me going though every emotion know to man kind. I will happily read Fiancé by Friday over and over again. And I can't wait for the next book Catherine has coming. Keep up the great work Catherine.

With a bride on the cover and a title of "Fiance by Friday," I fully expected a sweet, sappy romance. And while that was there, I was not expecting the thrill ride of action and adventure in a novel I thought was a romance. But that didn't stop me from being fully engaged in the story. I really enjoyed the book. I thought that Neil was a great guy, if a little over-protective. The run-for-their lives flight that he and Gwen took, where they finally admitted their feelings, had me rooting that th ...more

I would love a Neil MacBain on my own. Even though I should hate Gwen's guts, I liked her. She was a nice person and deserved a great guy like Neil.

Questa serie migliora di libro in libro!
In questo volume l’autrice introduce una nuova serie di personaggi e gestisce le relazioni e le rivelazioni in maniera audace e intelligente!
Ad un certo punto, la tensione e la voglia di sapere erano così forti che mi sono letta le ultime pagine tutte insieme!
Il personaggio di Neil mi è piaciuto un sacco: il super guerriero dal cuore tenero! Ma devo ammettere che anche la piccolo Gwen non è affatto male, ha dimostrato di avere forza, coraggio e f

Oh my!

What started as a simple 'find me a ''pretend'' wife, turned out to be a great suspense !

Who'd a thought Gwen and Neil.  She was running the dating agency for her sister-in-law Samantha, and had just met an actor who was looking for a temporary wife, and Gwen straight away thought of Karen, who was working with her at the agency.

Neil was the bodyguard and head of her brother Blake's security and was watching over Gwen and Karen at the house/office they shared, then strange things began to

Fiancé by Friday is Gwen’s story, the privileged but sheltered daughter of an English duke. Gwen has always aspired to leave her blood blue relatives and start living her own life. She moves into her sister in law’s former residence in the states and starts running her ‘bride for hire’ business. Now if only she could get her favorite bodyguard to show some interest in her.
Former military man, Neil has always enjoyed keeping his client Gwen in eye’s sight but that is all it could ever be. When se

What a disappointment...I was swimming in anticipation to get to Neil and Gwen's story. I love Gwen and Neil as characters and this book was an affirmation of that...but most of the book was spent developing and executing the thriller plot and very little time was focused on Gwen and Neil's romance. If I wanted to read a military coup and conspiracy book I would not have picked up a romance novel.

I don't know what it is with this series but I love them. They have the perfect combination of suspense, mystery, passion, family, loyalty, and love.

It has felt like forever that we have been waiting for Gwen and Neil to FINALLY get together. The first two books were like the longest foreplay between the two.

For Neil the giant with a jaded past and a soft heart

For Gwen, the lady with a heart of gold and strength of a war

This book definitely crosses the line from contemporary romance to romantic suspense and Catherine does an amazing job with the change! I enjoyed the other weekday bride books in this series but this one is the best by far!

Gwen has been fantasizing about Neil and dropping hints that she is available for him. Neil ignores her and doesn't give her any reason to believe he would ever be interested in her. But someone else has noticed the way Neil looks at her and decides to go after Gwen. Gwen does

Fiancé By Friday es el tercer libro de la serie The Weekday Brides de Catherine Bybee y narra la historia de Gwen y Neil, personajes secundarios en los libros anteriores.

All of the books in this series are just guilty pleasures. Very light , chicklet, vacation read.
I liked the story. The suspense in this book was killing me, which was great, giving the story some substance. Not much of a fan of Neil and Gwen. It felt like their love in this story had no depth. I didn't feel it which is a shame because I loved Neil in the previous book. But in this one I just didn't feel their chemistry, probably because most of the story is spent on building up the mystery and

Before you read Fiance by Friday, you should read Wife By Wednesday and Married by Monday so you get the dynamics of the group and background of our main protaganists, Gwen and Neil.

Gwen - Lady Gwendolyn Harrison, is the sister of the Duke of Albany. She has had not so much a sheltered life, but more a restricted life due to being at her family home in the UK. Everyone thinks she is the prissy, helpless English Lady, and she is sick of it. She is a sm

Holy Hell! Each book in this series is better than the previous one!

We first met Gwen in Neil in "Wife by Wednesday," the first in the Weekday Brides series. Then we got a glimpse of the sexual tension humming between them in "Married by Monday." In "Fiance by Friday," they finally came together.

To say Gwen, the daughter of a duke, has been sheltered her whole life would be an understatement. At 31, she wants some freedom. Since Eliza and Carter's wedding, Gwen has stepped up to fill Eliza's sho

Catherine Bybee first captured my attention with her sweet contemporary romance series, Not Quite. I love this authors writing, and I recommend her to both contemporary and suspense romance fans.

This was a very effortless read -- the flow and pace were exceptional. I read this entire book in a single day. My initial reservations about Lady Gwendolyn Harrison being a spoiled, pampered, princess were quickly quashed. She is a well-written character with many layers permitting her great range witho

I discovered Catherine Bybee when I was presented with the book Not Quite Dating in November of last year. I loved that book and added Catherine to my list of authors to watch. Since that time I have read and reviewed several more of her stories and she has cemented herself as one of my favorite authors. I simply enjoy everything she writes.

When I won this copy from the author, to say I was ecstatic would be a gross understatement. I couldn’t wait to finish the book I was already reading so I co

This book was a cute fluffy romance with a mystery woven in. I love a good romance in the summertime. So this book fit the bill. Although it wasn’t the greatest book, it was still very enjoyable.

This book follows Gwen who comes from a highborn family in England. In fact, she is the daughter of an English Duke. Gwen has moved to the states and runs a matchmaking business that was created by her sister in law. Although Gwen came from a pampered upbringing, she really thrives on having some indepe

Catherine Bybee is one of my favorite authors. I have to say I really wasn't expecting a book that was more romantic suspense than the usual light airy stories from her Not Quite series.

I'm not usually a fan of that particular genre, but Catherine Bybee really knows how to tell a good story. Not only do you instantly love the heroine, Gwen and her alpha male hero, Neil, you also love all the supporting characters in the book as well.

Karen is one character you have to love. I liked her selflessn

So here iam....and seriously, the book was sweet n short, a wonderful romance.

This was fantastic! I really liked the previous two books in the series, but I loved this book, and it is by far my favorite of the series.

I was captivated by the story from the beginning to the end. The flow of this story, as with the previous books, was awesome. This story is mostly told from the alternating third person POV of our hero Neil and our heroine Gwen. We do get the POV of a couple other characters in the book, which I found thoroughly entertaining, I speciall
FINALLY! We get to uncover the enigma that is Neil!! He has been that elusive bodyguard in the background that Gwen just hasn't been able to ignore. And, Ms. Bybee does not disappoint. He is exactly as we have seen in previous books, only better!

I think of all of this author's books, this one is arguably the best and most tightly written. The characters stay true while the reader uncovers, bit by bit, their tender, funny, loyal yet honorable, and distinctly scrumptious inner-sides. Neil is stil

I am an avid fan of Catherine Bybee. This series caught me by surprise. I thought it would be too "fluffy" for me, but when will I learn that you can not judge a book by it's cover or name alone. I had to do some quick reading to participate in this blog, I didn't want to jump in and read Fiancé by Friday, without having read the first two books in the series.

Fiance by Friday is Catherine Bybee's third book in her Weekday Brides Series. Each book can be read as a standalone but they do feature recurring characters. This is the first book I read in the series and had no problem understanding the plot or characters.

In Fiance by Friday, combines romance with action, mystery, and a bit of suspense. I loved that it wasn't just straight romance. Plot definitely kept me interested throughout the whole novel. I don't want to spoil the story but I enjoyed it,

When I started this book, I was expecting a sweet, contemporary romance. Honestly, it read more like romantic suspense, complete with a former Marine, guns, and a whacked out antagonist! Lady Gwendolyn Harrison is looking for some spice in her life and boy does she find it in bad boy Neil MacBain.

The only negative thing I found was I didn't completely buy into the antagonist's motive...But then this is fiction, right?
