Blind-Date Marriage - Fiona Harper

Title: Blind-Date Marriage

Author: Fiona Harper

Line: Silhouette Romance/ M&B Romance

Release month: US - November 06 / UK - December 06

The S-Factor: Sweet


Can this blind date lead to an appointment at the altar…?

Serena—loves everything in life, except for blind dates! She’s turned her back on her unconventional upbringing, and her deepest wish is to marry Mr. Right….

Jake—is a highly successful and focused businessman. He’s worked hard to escape his roots, and now lives by one rule: never get married!

A romantic candlelit restaurant, a dozen red roses, champagne on ice…the scene is set for the perfect blind date!


Serena wants a rose-covered cottage, kids, two dogs and Mr Perfect to complete the fantasy. Jake ticks all the right boxes for the role — except the most important one – the ready for commitment box. A pity Serena doesn’t realise that before she falls in love with him.

Jake is strongly attracted to her, but can’t believe he can make her happy. When he realises Serena wants more than he can give he walks away.
Despite a strong feeling of regret, he is so determined not to get emotionally involved with Serena that the reader spends much of the book wondering how these two immensely likeable characters will ever get together.

Blind date marriage is a humorous and touching story with a rivetting plot, plenty of action and a loveable, quirky heroine. It’s written in a young, contemporary style and I absolutely loved it.
A book you should not miss!

I finsihed it yesterday. It made me cry. It made me laugh. I had a silly grin on my face for hours.

I reviewed it on my blog but basically a must read.
