Be prepared to smile, swoon, and sigh in Christi Caldwell's latest Heart of a Scandal installment where a matchmaker firmly on the shelf is about to fall head over heels for her best friend's younger brother.
She lives by a strict set of rules…
Meredith Durant believes those who won't marry, matchmake, and she's made a notable career for herself helping young women find the perfect mate. Having suffered a broken heart years before, she's quite content in her work and determined to never fall prey to love again. Her most recent job finds her working for the unlikeliest of households, never expecting her assignment would be her best friend's younger brother, Barry—who's not so little anymore. He's a grown man who leaves her breathless and wishing just maybe this time she could have a happy ending. But how can that happen when, once her job is done, she must watch him wed another?
He's decided to break her rules:
Barry Aberdeen, the future Duke of Gayle, knew his days of freedom were numbered. With his sister recently married, his mother turned her marital aspirations to him. She's even gone as far as to hire a matchmaker. Worse, the matchmaker is a childhood friend--Meredith Durant. Only the rigid, serious creature is not the carefree girl he remembered. If he's going to be saddled with a matchmaker, he's going to have fun loosening Meredith's too-tight chignon. What he doesn't expect is how entranced he'll be when those strands come falling down around her shoulders.
