Three bachelors turned…matchmakers?

One special night with Cooper Hamilton gave Nora Perry a precious gift. But no way is the sweet-talking salesman the right guy for her…or is he?

Former pro athlete Ty Porter could get burned when he falls for the beautiful reporter who ruined his career—and could now expose his most zealously guarded secret!

Gideon Walker has a long history with free-spirited flower shop owner Sophie Jennings. But when the banker-matchmaker fixes her up with potential candidates, he realizes he's made a terrible mistake…

Stories about matchmakers are fun, but when the matchmakers are men, well, I couldn't resist. Cooper, Ty and Gideon have been friends since high school. They live in Alaska and hang out at the local bar. Ty was a hockey star and was their ticket to the Lower 48, but a career-ending injury put a halt to those plans. One day, while watching a lifestyle report on TV, they came up with the idea that they would be great matchmakers. They made a bet with the owner of the bar, Coach, that they could get six couples to fall in love and ring the bell at the bar by Valentine's Eve, which would give them three weeks. If they won, Coach would give them jobs on one of his hockey teams.

Soon after making the bet, they realized that they had no clue what they were doing. They worked on convincing everyone they knew to fill out questionnaires and go on group dates. In each of their stories, a woman entered the picture who could be their perfect match, but there were obstacles to overcome. I liked the three men right away and Sophie, who was in the final story. The other two women, Nora and Kelsey, weren't my favorites, but I was okay with the way everything worked out.

Cooper, Ty and Gideon's efforts at matchmaking were entertaining and they made lots of mistakes along the way. I enjoyed all three stories, but the last one was my favorite. The authors did an amazing job of making the stories seamless. The major characters were in each of the stories and they were consistent. I also love that the stories are all clean! If you're looking for a fun Valentine's Day read, check this one out!!

Cari Lynn Webb lives in Alabama with her family. If she isn’t at her computer, she can usually be found: picking up her daughters from school, dropping off at swimming or soccer practice or running into the grocery store for that one thing she forgot on her shopping list. She loves escaping into a romance and her e-reader can usually be found in her passenger seat. Visit her at:

You’ve met Anna J. Stewart (or someone like her) before. She was the girl who spun in circles on the playground hoping her Wonder Woman costume would magically appear before playing cops and robbers a la Charlie’s Angels–as Sabrina (she was the smart one). Anna was the girl in the back of the class with a paperback romance hidden in her algebra book (and yes, she failed algebra).

Growing up in the 70′s and 80′s meant there weren’t a lot of YA books, so she ventured early into mainstream fiction and read Stephen King’s CARRIE at the age of 8. Discovering Nora Roberts and romance novels early in high school opened her eyes to the wonders of storytelling and the beauty of a happily ever after.

So here she is, many years later with an English degree from CSU Sacramento, an RWA Golden Heart nomination behind her, countless stories in her head, and a serious addiction to STAR TREK, SUPERNATURAL, and SHERLOCK. She recently wrapped up a nearly 8-year stint working as assistant to NYTimes bestselling author Brenda Novak where she helped run Brenda's annual online auction for diabetes research. When she's not writing or reading (which she never has enough time for!), she's working on dollhouse miniatures and tolerating her overly-affectionate cat named Snickers (or perhaps it's Snickers who tolerates her).
