Lorret’s Misadventures in Matchmaking series starter and print debut sparkles with wit and passion.

A smart, fun charmer!

Jacinda and her sisters deal with all types of clients at the Bourne Matrimonial Agency, but there is something about the Duke of Rydstrom’s request for a bride that leads Jacinda to sneak into his home and investigate. What she discovers sends her to the duke’s crumbling estate and a secret he’s been hiding. The problem is that Jacinda has no memory of why she is there. Rydstrom finds Jacinda washed up on the shore with amnesia, which solves part of his problems. But the longer Jacinda stays, the more he’s tempted to kiss her senseless. Everything about her screams she is the perfect bride, yet when she remembers what brought her to his estate, will she insist on leaving and finding him another bride? (AVON, Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)
