THE TYCOON'S DATING DEAL
Interior designer Kara Roberts reluctantly agrees to a night of speed dating to help her friend Sally's ailing matchmaking business. Her first love, lawyer Matt Byrne, is there, looking for someone to pretend to be his girlfriend. Kara agrees to help him, but does she dare risk her heart again? The Tycoon's Dating Deal (3) is Nicola Marsh's first book. The modern plot is the story's strong suit, and the author does a good job of justifying the characters' motivations, though readers may not be able to overlook the fact that Matt harshly rejected Kara at 18 and is now buying her as a date to promote himself professionally.
