THE MATCHMAKER BRIDE (US TITLE)MR AND MISCHIEF(UK TITLE) by author Kate Hewitt is from Harlequin Modern line.

Emily Wood is beautiful, clever, rich but single career girl with no interest in love and marriage. Yet she does matchmaking for her friends and co-workers to their happily-ever-after.

Her boss and childhood crush, Jason Kingsley appears immune to the fact that Emily has grown up now. But he feels the chemistry between them sizzle and is hurt when Emily to cover her attraction, teases him as boring.

In Jason’s view love hurt. It hurt the person loved and the person loving. It was messy, disappointing, complicated and unnecessary. He never planned to feel it. In his opinion, love was overrated!

I had grave doubts how the author would manage to get this two characters together for their happily ever after, but I was pleasantly surprised.

The growth and progression of the love between Emily and Jason, though they, themselves are not aware at the time, is depicted in a natural flow which is emotionally satisfying. We know Jason loves Emily, yet he doesn’t realize it because he feels himself incapable of experiencing love.

The author has delivered a tortured hero, who doesn’t believe in love, a strong feisty heroine, who ends up wanting the fairy tale love with all its frills and rolled them in a story that is filled with emotion and sizzle. Emily and Jason’s story is hugely enjoyable and highly romantic tale readers will find absolutely impossible to resist.

Redolent with breathtaking romance, spectacular emotional punch, a believable conflict and vivid atmospheric details MR AND MISCHIEF is the latest high standard offering by Kate Hewitt. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Will love conquer ... her boss? Beautiful, clever, rich--and determinedly single--Emily Wood is the youngest ever head of HR at her company. Whether dousing corporate fires or matchmaking lonely colleagues, Emily's at the top of her game. Only her handsome, sardonic boss, Jason Kingsley, appears to remain immune to her charm. Jason is used to women falling at his feet, but relationships, with all their illogical demands, are not for him. So why does he find Emily so attractive? She's a highly unsuitable target for his seduction and merger skills--what with her misguided belief in the power of love."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)
