Image of Tangled Up In Love

The interfering matchmakers in this story are nicely devious and use a dash of magic to get the two main characters together. With an overabundance of hot sex, a pushy hero and a heroine amazingly not quite in touch with the real world, this story is entertaining, but not unforgettable.

Friendly rivalry between newspaper columnists Dylan Stone and Veronica Chasen has them doing such things as bungee jumping (her) and skydiving (him). When Dylan's last challenge has Ronnie getting a tattoo, she picks a sure-fire way to beat him: He must learn to knit in a month.

But a member of Ronnie's knitting group decides that Ronnie and Dylan are meant for each other, so she spins some yarn for them on a magic spinning wheel -- one that brings true love to those who use the yarn. Their rivalry changes from friendly to sexually hot and Ronnie begins sharing secrets with Dylan about her past that she has never told anyone. (ST. MARTIN'S, Feb., 320 pp., $6.99)
