25. Heart's Secret
by Adrianne Byrd
The Match Made series tells the stories of The Platinum Society, an exclusive matchmaking service run by Melanie Hart. In this first book of the series Melanie is charged with the task of finding a match for banker Jaxon Landon. Two things make this assignment different though - first, she is hired by Jaxon's grandmother not Jaxon himself and second, he's already engaged. Melanie sets him up with former model, now agency owner, Zora Campbell, who is more than put off when she discovers that Jaxon has a fiance. Melanie doesn't give up easy and the chemistry between the two is undeniable.
I recently discovered Adrianne Byrd's writing (or maybe re-discovered; I forget a lot of books I've read over the years) and I wasn't disappointed by this one. The cat and mouse game played between Zora and Jaxon was fresh and not frustrating as some romance authors tend to make similar situations. Oh, and it was plenty steamy, too! Ms. Byrd is the best at that!
