"Kathleen Darrow loves a challenge, and taking care of Jordan Long's two young daughters certainly qualifies! The girls think she's wonderful, but will their handsome single dad ever get to meet her if he keeps taking business trips to faraway places?
The Matchmakers' secret plan to play Cupid is pure genius, and once Jordan meets their temporary nanny, he's sure to fall in love.
In Fire and Ice, Alisa Franklin is devoted to her much younger sister-and she'll do anything to keep the little girl. But according to the terms of her mother's will, Alisa must marry to retain custody. Only Zachary Stuart, maverick and millionaire, will accept her term: a marriage in name only, for exactly one year. And Alisa is in for the surprise of her life. Zach's patience-and his passion-are about to capture her heart...forever."
The 2 Beans Worth: A Challenge? That's an understatment. Unbeknownst to Kathleen and Jordan his two daughters are The Matchmakers. They've decided their dad needs a wife and they want a mom. So they've chased off their previous nanny in hopes of gaining a better suited one. Though the girls are convinced that Kathleen is perfect, there dad isn't as convinced. Even worse, he suspects her of being the manipulator. Sure to fall in love? Maybe, but love's never easy. Find out for yourself if the girls' plan works out.
What's better than opposites attracting? Not much. There's so much passion when they do. Sadly, Dailey (In Fire and Ice) makes the passion mean loud fighting and stubborn stupidity. There is not a single moment where you think Zachary actually loves Alisa. He acts like nothing more than an egotistical control freak towards her. And Alisa's no better. There were multiple times she needed to be slapped for acting like a child throwing a temper tantrum.
So while The Matchmakers was a fun read, Fire and Ice was anything but. Therefore, Dance With Me is only worth 2 cups of coffee.
