A week-long trip. A fake marriage. And seven delicious nights with only one bed in the hotel room.
He's my business partner, my good friend, and the man I've craved for years.
But I've resisted the sexy Brit, and I plan to keep up my walls because I've been there, done that, and I know how much it hurts when you let someone into your heart.
Then an opportunity comes along for us to snag the business deal of a lifetime.
We need to pretend we're married to pull off this high-stakes deal.
So the clever, charming man with secrets a mile deep becomes my temporary husband, as we travel around Europe. Soon, we fall into bed, tangled together like newlyweds who can't keep their hands off each other.
One week to explore our fantasies, then we return to who we were.
But when I learn the dark secrets he's been keeping, I doubt we can go back.
Because they change everything.
My One-Week Husband is a standalone.

4.25 stars--MY ONE WEEK HUSBAND by Lauren Blakely is a contemporary, adult, erotic romance story line set in the author’s THE EXQUISITE world. This is business partners and hoteliers, thirty three year old Scarlett Slade, and Daniel Stewart’s story line. MY ONE WEEK HUSBAND can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Scarlett and Daniel were first introduced in ONE EXQUISITE TOUCH as business partners of hotelier Cole Donovan.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Daniel and Scarlett) MY ONE WEEK HUSBAND follows British born Daniel Stewart, and his business partner Scarlett Slade on a business tour through France, and the potential acquisition of a new hotel to add to their growing billion dollar venture. In an effort to get up close and personal with prospective hotels, Daniel and Scarlett pose as husband and wife, a partnership that lead to a happily ever after but Daniel’s past has hardened his heart to love and forever, and Scarlett struggles with the failure of her first, a marriage she believed would last a life time. What ensues is the building romance and relationship, predicated upon a lie, between Scarlett and Daniel, and the potential fall-out as Daniel refuses to acknowledge the possibility of a future with our story line heroine.
Scarlett Slade never expected to fall for Daniel Stewart but our heroine is quickly discovering that there is more to Daniel than meets the eye. Posing as husband and wife, Scarlett and Daniel take their fake relationship to the next level, a relationship that becomes all too real for our story line hero. Daniel Stewart has lusted after his partner for as long as he can remember but Daniel refuses to open his heart to romance and love. Falling for Scarlett was easy, breaking her heart was about to destroy him from within.
The relationship between Scarlett and Daniel is a business partners to lovers, fake marriage between two people who struggle to move on from the past. Daniel never expected to enter into the hotel business, and Scarlett had to move out from under the heaviness of the destruction of her marriage. Journeying through France, Scarlett and Daniel would reveal their backstories, backstories that are heart breaking, emotional and sometimes dark. The $ex scenes are intimate, intense and steamy without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
The colorful and energetic secondary and supporting characters included business partner Cole Donovan, Scarlett’s parents, as well as several Parisians, and another couple honeymooning in Paris, France.
MY ONE WEEK HUSBAND is a story of loss and acceptance; romance and love. The premise is inviting and imaginative; the romance is spirited and edgy; the characters are broken, sassy, and animated.
Loved it!!! Witty and Sexy.

How long is a week
Not long enough for this hot little number! I stumbled upon it checking up on what was new by an author I always love reading. I thought it would be corny but boy did those kernels pop! It was a so freakin hot!! Loved Daniel!! Love Daniels sexy dirty side. Scarlett well she was refreshingly layered and both of them had much more to their story, as you flip through the pages your attachment grows. It has humour, lust and a great unfolding of how their pasts affect their todays! Turns out Scarlett is a closet dirty girl. I loved it. It was a panty melting treat with a real love story.
