Strong lead characters light up this romance and engage the reader from page one. Melanie Harte’s reputation as a premier matchmaker is at stake as she maneuvers supermodel Zora Campbell and Jaxon Landon into the meeting that will change their lives. Never taking itself too seriously is the key to making this story a charmer.
Once Jaxon introduces an exotic dancer as his fiancée, his grandmother decides that it’s up to her to find him the perfect wife. Enter matchmaker Melanie. She talks Zora into a blind date with Jaxon but, unfortunately, no one told Zora that he was already spoken for. When they finally do connect, the chemistry is fiery and real. Even though neither is looking for that permanent hook-up, they realize the rightness of their link.
There are a couple of bumps in the road to romance in the form of Jaxon’s business rival, who tries to get physical with Zora, and the inevitable blow-up when Jax finds out that the original date was a setup. But will these obstacles be enough to derail their journey to a happy ending? (KIMANI/ARABESQUE, Jun., 304 pp., $6.99)
