Nola Grainger needs a man...and fast. Her grandmother has left her everything in her will, with one small catch: Nola has to be married within a month. But if she's going to get married, she wants it to last. And for her, that means finding a man with as much passion as she has-who can take care of every desire, every day.
Nola finds three prime candidates: her high school sweetheart Billy, hard-dealing businessman Marc, and sexy handyman Tanner. Trying out three very different-and very desirable-men proves to be more fun than Nola imagined. But she never thought it might prove fatal.
Because someone in town is dead set against Nola sticking around. And with three new men in her bed, the danger might be closer than she thinks...

Mating Game, on shelves now, is the most recent release by Janice Maynard.
Nola Grainger has a successful photography business in Chicago, but it seems that all this might come to an end, when the terms of her grandmother's will are revealed. Although archaic, it is ironclad and leaves her no choice but to try and fulfill the terms her grandmother has set out. If she wants to inherit her ancestral home, Lochhaven, she must marry within thirty days and live in the small town of Resnick, Georgia for six months. So what's a girl to do?
Nola heads back to Resnick, intent on maybe rekindling a relationship with Billy Inman, her high school sweetheart. But Marc Overmeyer, her present boyfriend and lover, has decided that he wants to take their relationship to the next level and follows her south from Chicago. Upon arriving in town she soon meets smoking hot Tanner Nash, the handyman who has been fixing up her grandmother's dilapidated home. Now with three candidates, Nola must decide who would make the best husband. Her goal is a lifelong union and she is determined to choose a mate with whom she is compatible on all levels.
There is an element of mystery in this story that is new and different for Ms. Maynard. Someone in town is out to stop Nola from claiming her inheritance. Could it be one of the three potential husbands, or is there someone else that she is overlooking?
This contemporary romance is well written and flows seamlessly. In the end Nola does get her happily ever after, and the choice she makes is exactly right for her. It might be a stretch for some readers who believe in monogamous relationships, but if read with an open mind, letting the story work its way to its conclusion, this will be an enjoyable read.
