Never Say Never
Book 2, The Perfect Date
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Dating's one thing, but what’s love got to do with it?
Nothing. At least not for Ann Lynx. She’s fifty-three for goodness sake. She’s had love. All she’s in the market for these days is some fun companionship—no strings attached.
Thanks to her pain-in-the-rear-end best friend, Georgia, she’s now back on the dating scene. Add Georgia’s matchmaking daughter Mariah to the mix and Ann is officially in a world of trouble—or dates—to be more accurate.
All that would be kind of doable, but her handyman’s sexy too-young-for-her son is making her feel like a silly young girl. She should definitely stick to the handsome, successful, and older men that Mariah keeps throwing in her path, but she can’t seem to banish the sexy Cal from her thoughts anymore than from her broken pantry.
The retired military man is very good at fixing things, and at kissing her senseless. Who’s going to fix her though if Cal ends up breaking her heart?
What’s love got to do with it? Maybe everything.
About THE PERFECT DATE Series
The essence of all romantic comedy is that falling in love and navigating an unexpected romance is never easy or simple. Instead, it’s messy and emotional, and if you’re lucky, it’s also sexy and fun.
Some relationship professionals, like my character of Dr. Mariah Bates in this series, sincerely want to help people find their perfect love match. For the various heroines I’ve created, many of whom are older, Mariah’s going to need all the help she can get. Or maybe she just needs to step out of the way. You can be the judge.
NOTE ABOUT THE HEAT LEVEL: Not being a fan of the word “clean” when applied to romance, I will instead say the heat level in this new series is in the 1-2 range, rather than 3-4 like some of my others. The focus is on sensuality and I’ve packed a lot into these stories.
A HEA for Ann & Cal
Ann & Cal's storyline began in book 1 of this series. She is uneasy dating a younger man, and he feels she's really looking for a more wealthy man.
I love the mature women in this series. They often speak their minds - especially to each other.
While Ann & Call are coming together in this book, Georgia's story begins - the result of some trickery. Her daughter Mariah started a dating service largely catering to wealthy men. Georgia & her friends have committed to help Mariah's business by being available for dates. But they don't go silently.
These stories are sexy but not explicit. The characters are smarter and much funnier than the early 20's we see in so many other romance novels.
