Single mom Daisy Sorensen doesn’t believe in fairytale endings—at least not for her. All she wants is to enjoy a much-needed, stress-free family vacation at a friend’s Lake Tahoe home. So of course everything that can go wrong does. Including a gorgeous man and his daughter showing up in the middle of the night.

Soon-to-be Governor Jack Harrison has had a crazy week, but he’s sure nothing can top arriving to find a bathrobe-clad, beautiful stranger in the home he’s staying in for the week. He’s wrong. When things spiral out of control the next morning, Jack makes Daisy an offer she can’t refuse. She’ll pretend to be his fiancée and he’ll help her open the bakery she’s been dreaming about.

But in between late-night campfires and days on the lake, Jake finds himself falling for the strong, stubborn woman for real.

Truly one of the best romance books I've read lately. Loved how both Daisy and Jack worked through their past hurts to find that love is enough.

When I heard about this book I knew I had to read it. I'd just gotten back from a trip to California and had stopped by Lake Tahoe to show my kids how beautiful and magical it was.

The kids are older. The parents are somewhat wiser and emotions run deeper. Her Surprise Engagement is about starting over when happily ever after doesn't work out as planned. The kids are precocious and the romance borders more on sweet than heat, but Ashlee Mallory uses that to her advantage. Not ...more

A sweet fake-to-not romance story!

Received in exchange for a honest review.

Loved Jack. At times he was coming off strong but I think it’s because he is so comfortable with himself and his feelings that he owns them and doesn’t apologize for it. He also has a desire to take care of those he loves. It is hard for him not to want to he ...more

I had just finished Her Backup Boyfriend when I came across the opportunity to review Her Surprise Engagement. So I of course jumped on the chance because I was intrigued by Daisy's character. She showed strength in it but I was in two minds about her. So I am happy the way her story turned out.

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Ashlee Mallory

Ashlee was thirteen when she snuck her first Kathleen E. Woodiwiss book hidden away in her mom’s closet. After two days of staying home “sick” from school to finish it, she was hooked. Her rabid love for romance has continued ever since, and after a misadventure in the world of law, she is finally settling into her dream job of writing about people finding their happily ever afters—the only stories worth reading, after all. Ashlee lives in the greater Salt Lake Valley in Utah with her sweetie, two fabulous kids, and a dog and cat that vie equally for her attention. Sometimes by sitting on her computer when she’s trying to work. And although surrounded by picturesque mountains and beautiful landscapes, she’s practically sallergic to direct sunlight, the outdoors, and anything that involves communing with nature. Give her a book, an abundance of coffee, and a shady (enclosed) spot with a view and she’s happy. Whether writing contemporary romances or romances with mystery and suspense, Ashlee aims to create down to earth heroines and heroes that will make you laugh and fall in love all over again.
