About this ebook

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 1 - NEVER IS A VERY LONG TIME

Cupid she’s not—but she’s pretty darn close.

Nothing in the world feels better to Dr. Mariah Bates than finding her clients the perfect date. Of course finding one for herself might be nice, but creative bill paying is for college students—not for accomplished doctors in their forties. Satisfied customers keep the electricity on. With her cop ex-husband doing everything he can to ruin her business, she’s at her wit's end. Throw in another cop who makes her believe in love at first sight—or at least lust—and life is a mess.

Book 2 - NEVER SAY NEVER

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.

Book 3 - NEVER A DULL MOMENT

What could she possibly have in common with a man whose watch costs more than her car?

Georgia may be slowing down a bit at sixty, but she isn’t stupid yet. The idea of her genuinely dating Dr. Brentwood Colombo, aka Hollywood… well, that’s just totally insane. How did she let her snickering friends dare her into giving him a chance? A fair chance at what? Breaking her heart? No, thank you. Her dignity will not be trampled under Hollywood’s expensive shoes. Now if he’d just stop talking about her perfect, perfect breasts, she might forget about him completely.

*************

NOTE ABOUT THE SERIES 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.

I loved these books. First, because they are about more mature couples, 40+. Second, because they were established in their careers, smart, and funny. The couple's interactions are playful, fun, and you get to experience their quick wits. And, on top of all of that, they really LIKE each other. Mariah's mom and her friends were pretty funny. After the first book, I was rooting for Dr. Colombo and Georgia. There book was not my favorite of the three, but it was still good. I especially loved Mariah and Dan's last interaction. She was much nicer than I would have been, but it was good. This book proved the 40's are the new 20's, only better. I really enjoyed these books. They made me laugh, they made me smile. I highly recommend any book that leaves me feeling good with a smile on my face after the last page. I voluntarily read and reviewed each of the three books.
