The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. A simple thing to remember . . . unless you’re a matchmaker with amnesia. The Duke of Rydstrom requires a wife. Preferably one with a large fortune and a complete lack of curiosity. The last thing he needs is a meddling matchmaker determined to dig up his dark family secrets. All Jacinda wants is to find a bride for a duke. How hard could that be? He’s handsome, enigmatic . . . and hiding something. She’s sure of it. Determined to discover what it is, she travels to his crumbling cliffside estate. Yet, by the time she washes up on his beach, she can no longer remember who she is or why the duke is so familiar to her. All she knows is that his kisses are unforgettable—and she intends to use every skill she can to discover what’s in his heart . . . When Miss Bourne can’t remember what brought her to his ancestral home, Rydstrom intends to keep it that way. Yet as the days pass, his true challenge will be safeguarding his secret while resisting this woman who—confound it all—may well be his perfect match.

-- A USA TODAY Bestseller -- Cactus Creek's most romantic eligible bachelor, new-to-town and new-to-singlehood chocolatier Luke Bradford believes in old school romance, fighting wars waged over love, and deploying his dimples whenever an impossible-to-resist woman instigates it. But for once, this serial monogamist is trying not to platter up his heart to get stomped on for a change. That’s the plan, at least. Until he locks horns with the feisty beer-brewing beauty next door, that is. Soon, driving the woman sparking nuts becomes a wickedly fun priority he simply can’t get enough of. In his defense, she’s addictively easy to incite…and plain impossible to resist. Cactus Creek's award-winning brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson can’t believe how good her maddeningly distracting new neighbor is at pushing her buttons. It’s bad enough the unjustly gorgeous man comes locked and loaded with sexy flashing dimples and charm for days. But using all his chocolate-covered romantic idealism—not unlike the kind her heart’s been shattered by before—to start a chocolate vs. beer feud right in her backyard? The nerve of that man. Inexplicable, downright combustible chemistry between them or not, damn it, this means war. At stake? Very likely, her heart. ♥ IMPORTANT AUTHOR NOTE ♥ This is hands-down the most over-the-top of all my books (past, present, and future) in the sweet and mushy romantic department. A book about a brewmaster and chocolatier battling over Valentine's Day supremacy? Yeah, it was a given I was going to go all-out on the feel-good romance for this one. So be forewarned, this is *way* sweeter than all my other books (probably combined). If you're in the mood for a small town romance with lots of smiles and two stubbornly romantic characters who work hard for their happily ever after, this is the book for you! xoxo ♥ THE CACTUS CREEK SERIES Love, Chocolate, and Beer [Luke & Dani] Love, Diamonds, and Spades [Rylan & Quinn] Love, Tussles, and Takedowns [Hudson & Lia] Love, Exes, and Ohs [Isaac & Xoey] All the Cactus Creek books are standalone novels with feel-good HEAs. :) Enjoy!
