Rachel Harris

rachel harrisRachel Harris grew up in New Orleans, watching soap operas with her grandmother, and staying up  late sneak-reading her mama’s romance novels. Today, she still stays up late reading romances, only now she does so openly.

A Cajun cowgirl now living in Houston, she firmly believes life’s problems can be solved with a hot, sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.

She homeschools her two beautiful girls and watches countless hours of Food Network and reality television with her amazing husband. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult Fun, Flirty Escapes, and LOVES talking with readers!

My Rating: 5-star

So for 4 out of 4 books, the final rating for Rachel Harris’ works:

5-star

What Rachel Harris offers: She offers fun and imaginative stories with her own personal twist. She writes stories that can give so many feels and also make you laugh out loud. She gave me different worlds to experience and enjoy. I’m not sure about their accuracy, but they felt real to me. Her Love and Games series always seem to starve me. Her MSSSC series made me crave adventure. And each book offers hot swoon-worthy men. I badly fell for them! I adore all of her books. I’m sure not everyone else would, but she’s pretty perfect to me.

What I noticed about Rachel’s writing: It gets so much better every single time. Falling in love with sequels doesn’t happen every often to me. I was even doubtful to read A Tale of Two Centuries, but I loved it! I can’t wait what else she has to offer.

The Price? Her ebooks are really affordable! I bought paperbacks of her YA novels though. They’re totally worth it!

Final Verdict:

Rachel is an A+ Author

On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze.
Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore. Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?
