Excerpt & Giveaway: Accidentally Married on Purpose (Love and Games #3) by Rachel Harris

One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love

Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.

Sherry is a bit of a wild child and not necessarily on purpose, but somehow she always ends up in these crazy situations. Though this last one definitely trumps all. She is a woman that falls in love very easily, she loves to love, unfortunately love doesn't seem to love her really back. So far all she's left with is a broken heart, though I like that she never really gives up on love. 

Just one more crazy weekend in Vegas and then Sherry's had it. She wants her happily ever after, which means no more bad boys and hello nice guys. What she didn't count for though was waking up and married, let alone to country superstar Tyler Blue. Sherry doesn't even like country music. 

The last thing Tyler Blue wanted was a girlfriend, let alone a wife. While he's not okay with the idea, his publicist and management think otherwise. Him being married is apparently a PR dream come true. Now Tyler just has to convince Sherry to play his wife a little while longer.

From that first page the attraction between them is obvious, that's what got them in trouble in the first place. There is this click and easiness between them, that is just plain swoon worthy. Playing pretend isn't easy, when slowly real feelings are involved. I liked how it all developed, there is that chemistry but things turn pretty naturally into something more. Tyler and Sherry spend time together and live together, there is bound to be some feelings involved. It's impossible to deny, now they just have to figure out what to do with them.

Sherry and Tyler are great characters. They are very easy to connect with, have very distinctive voices and there is this overall sweetness around them that is simply adorable. It's a sweet and innocent story about finding love when you least expect it and giving that love a real change. 


Waking up face-first on the bathroom floor may not be cause for alarm for everyone, but for Sherry, it ranked right up there. Especially since she knew the second her eyes cracked open that it wasn’t her bathroom.

Fuzzy-edged memories pranced around her brain, just out of reach, as she hooked a hand on the toilet seat and pushed to a sitting position.

The world tilted.

As her stomach heaved, she dove for the porcelain throne, but nothing came up. Nothing other than slightly sharper memories. Ones that told of dancing, magical fountains, way too much alcohol, and some very, very sexy time between the sheets. The images pulsed like an old movie, blanking out too much for her liking, but a flush heated her skin at what she could recall.

Hot damn. She’d been right. A night with a roadie like Tyler would definitely keep her fantasies occupied for years to come. Shame she couldn’t remember more.

Resting her head on the cool surface, she surveyed the fancy digs with half-lidded eyes. It was a hell of a room, particularly on a roadie’s budget. Further proof that either Tyler was in tight with his boss, or Blue wasn’t nearly the egotist she’d pegged him to be. Too bad she hadn’t had a chance to meet him the other night.

“Tyler?” she called out again, wincing at the roughness of her voice. She sounded like an old lady who smoked a bazillion packs a day. Lovely. Grabbing hold of either side of the toilet, she wobbled first to her knees, and then her feet. The mirror was just a few feet away. Time to inspect the damage.

Eyes half closed, she fumbled forward and latched onto the counter to steady herself. Hangovers really didn’t suit her. She turned on the faucet, and as she waited for the plastic cup to fill with water, Sherry raised her eyes to her reflection.

“What the freaking hell?!?”

She was wearing a wedding veil.

A wedding veil was on her head. It was white. It had lace. And it was on her freaking head.

She didn’t have a single stitch of clothing on her body otherwise, but she did have that. “Hubba, hubba, wubba…what?”

She blinked hard, repeatedly, thinking her reflection would change. It didn’t. Cold water ran over her hand, and it didn’t wake her from the bizarre dream. The door behind her started to creak open, and Sherry jumped, snatching a towel off the floor.

When she saw a huge honking diamond on her finger, she ditched the towel and screamed instead.
