The seventh and final tale in the dazzling, heartwarming, and pulse-racing Weekday Brides series.

Gabriella Masini: She’s a woman haunted by her past, with the scars to prove it. She believes that fairy tales are for other people. An elite matchmaker at Alliance, she’s great at crunching numbers, but something doesn’t add up with her latest prospective client: a billionaire bad boy with his own secrets. When Gabi refuses to be his temporary wife, Hunter forces her hand with an offer she can’t refuse. But marriage to a man like that could never last…or could it?

Hunter Blackwell: Only his bank account is bigger than his ruthless ability to obtain anything he wants. These days, he has a secret reason to settle down, at least for a while—and he thinks the sensual and sassy Gabi will fit the bill perfectly. But when their marriage of convenience becomes downright dangerous, Hunter must decide how far to take his vow to honor and protect Gabi forever.

My Treasured by Thursday Review ... 

There's just something sweet and genuine about Catherine Bybee's writing.  Her stories are loaded full of heart and suspense.  They're not too heavy, and keep you captivated from start to finish. 

Treasured by Thursday is the last of this series, and I have to admit that I'm sad for it to end.  However, there is loads of potential for spin off series.   In Seduced by Sunday which was the sixth book of the series, we meet Gabi, whom is the sister of Valentino, Meg's husband.

In Seduced by Sunday, Gabi didn't have the best of luck when it came to love, which made her a bit gun shy to have any new relationships.

Hunter Blackwell needs a wife pronto, but when he asks a friend a favor, he's turned over to the women of Alliance.  Thinking he has it in the bag, he's quite surprised when Gabi turns him down to be an Alliance customer.

Not one to be told no, he turns to a bit of blackmail to get his way.  For Gabi, the every present peace keeper, she agrees to this plan.

"I am.  And please, if the masses begin to talk, remind everyone that I thought I loved a man who nearly killed me and I managed to survive.  Hunter needed a wife and I'm filling a role.  There are no emotions involved and no one is trying to end my life."

Famous last words for Gabi, because she too fell captive to love, while her life was in danger.
All the woman that work at Alliance seem to fall victim to love and near death experiences.  It must be something in the water for these ladies.   As Gabi barely survived her first marriage, now being blackmailed into her second one,  the last thing she expected was to fall for her husband. 

Super sweet story.  Super sweet series.

4 Who says you can't buy love thumbs up!
