These gender-swapped Golden Girls have the perfect plan to save their town from paranormal threats: matchmaking.
An arranged marriage seems like a good idea...until you're walking down the aisle toward the sexy immortal soldier you're in half in love with but have never technically met. But that's the least of Cara Jenklow's problems. After all, her best friend is a necklace and her idols are the Shades, a group of former soldiers who these days are more Golden Girls than Avengers. Still, even after the talking dog shows up, Cara is optimistic her new husband might be the key to happiness and belonging...if her secret powers don't kill her first.
William Best never asked to be immortal and to strike fear into pretty much everyone, but he's making the most of it by standing between would-be murderers and the innocent paranormals in their path. This time, that means coming to Beckwell, reuniting with his old army troop, the Shades, and maybe using their granddaughter as bait. No one's perfect, right? Besides, love was never the mission...

About the Author
Shelly Chalmers’ first favorite book was Cinderella, so once she could form letters, naturally she turned to romance where everyone “loved” each other—though mostly because she didn’t yet know how to spell “like.”
A 2014 RWA Golden Heart® finalist, she has a bachelor’s degree in English and French, and has never lost her love of romances and their happily-ever-afters. Her stories run the gamut from Regency shifters to space opera. All include a touch of magic, a sense of humor, and a dab of geek. She makes her home in Western Canada, where when not reading, writing, crafting, or hunting unusual treasures and teapots, she wrangles a husband, two daughters, and four nutball cats.
