 They're older. They're wiser. So why aren't they finding Mr. Right?

The feisty heroines of The Perfect Date series are seasoned about life and romance, but not necessarily wiser about love. The stories in this collection are romantic comedies with attitude. 


Book 4 - Never Ever Satisfied

If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. Right?

That’s easier said than done when Chef Trudy Baker has to co-host the cooking show of Chef Jack Dozen. Problem is Jack’s a jilted former love who would rather throw Trudy into the fire than share the spotlight with her. Sexy Jack has all the right ingredients for the perfect man, except he’s too young for her. The recipe of the network putting them together on TV is one that spells disaster. The only thing she and Jack ever cooked up together was trouble. 


Book 5 - Never Be Her Hero

Della needs a hero. Anybody got a cape Elliston can borrow?

How can a 31-year-old guy in his prime have a dating emergency? Elliston stupidly told his best client that he would bring a date to his weekend function, but then he got too busy with work to actually get off his butt and find one. Enter Dr. Della Livingston—the perfect fake date. Maybe he’s nuts from months of working too hard, but he’s beginning to wish this whole fake date thing wasn’t so fake. 


Book 6 - Never Try To Explain

All she wants is a friend. What’s wrong with that?

Sure Jellica felt a smidge guilty for the money Greg Skyler spent on their date, but what did a man who wears sweater vests expect from a woman who wears crystals, burns sage, and teaches yoga? The two of them are never going to be the romance of the century. In fact, they have absolutely nothing in common. So why is Greg acting so surprised and hurt to hear she wants only to be friends? Before her mind can sort it out, Greg’s sister is stalking her, his mother becomes her lawyer, and Greg starts bossing her around in the nicest way possible. Plus he’s still trying to kiss her. And he’s a really good kisser. Talk about confusing.

"Helen has weaved a delicately balanced story of intrigue, secrets and passion, which practically melts the pages." -Bare Naked Words

Though I give you my deepest gratitude for building the anticipation of what I’m sure will be an epic culmination to an amazing series. " -Heroes and Heartbreakers

Synopsis

Jade Roberts is in love with Talon Steel but no longer welcome in his home. While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love. If he and Jade are to have a future, he knows he must make peace with the dark shadows and horrors of his past.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…


Dating's one thing, but what’s love got to do with it? 


Nothing. At least not for Ann Lynx. She’s fifty-three for goodness sake. She’s had love. All she’s in the market for these days is some fun companionship—no strings attached. 


Right? Wrong.


Thanks to her pain-in-the-rear-end best friend, Georgia, she’s now back on the dating scene. Add Georgia’s matchmaking daughter Mariah to the mix and Ann is officially in a world of trouble—or dates—to be more accurate.


All that would be kind of doable, but her handyman’s sexy too-young-for-her son is making her feel like a silly young girl. She should definitely stick to the handsome, successful, and older men that Mariah keeps throwing in her path, but she can’t seem to banish the sexy Clark from her thoughts anymore than from her broken pantry.


The retired military man is very good at fixing things, and at kissing her senseless. Who’s going to fix her though if Clark ends up breaking her heart? 


What’s love got to do with it? Maybe everything.

ABOUT THE PERFECT DATE SERIES


The essence of all romantic comedy is that falling in love and navigating an unexpected romance is never easy or simple. Instead, it’s messy and emotional, and if you’re lucky, it’s also sexy and fun. 


Some relationship professionals, like my character of Dr. Mariah Bates in this series, sincerely want to help people find their perfect love match. For the various heroines I’ve created, many of whom are older, Mariah’s going to need all the help she can get. Or maybe she just needs to step out of the way. You can be the judge.

NOTE ABOUT THE HEAT LEVEL: Not being a fan of the word “clean” when applied to romance, I will instead say the heat level in this new series is in the 1-2 range, rather than 3-4 like some of my others. The focus is on sensuality and I’ve packed a lot into these stories.
