Their mutual attraction is a joy to behold….Cue the satisfied sighs of romance readers everywhere.” -Kirkus Reviews

“Matthews’ latest is filled with amusing, colorful characters placed within an engaging plot that will lure readers in…Tristan and Valentine’s romance is tender, genuine and passionate. With descriptive storytelling and natural conflict between characters, Matthews pens a heartfelt romance that culminates into a sweet ending that will leave readers happy. A wonderfully romantic read.” -RT Book Reviews
