From the moment he strode through the iron gate and into the offices of Two Love Lane on a crisp December day, it was obvious that Deacon Banks was something different. He wasn’t a Charleston native, not with that adorable Yankee accent. And unlike the usual client at the elegant matchmaking agency, he had no interest in finding a woman to marry–just a few no-strings dates while he was in town.
Macy Frost takes her professional services very seriously–how could she not, when she’s rumored to be a direct descendant of Cupid? Tech entrepreneur Deacon says he’s just trying to make his social-climbing aunt happy by being seen out and about with a few prominent beauties, but Macy insists she can make her client fall in love…for real. And Deacon can’t help but think she might be right. As charming as the palmetto trees and magnificent harbor may be, it’s the beautiful, breath-of-fresh-air Macy who’s become Deacon’s favorite part of the scenery. But can the hopelessly romantic Southern belle stop trying to fix him up and just let Cupid do his work on her own heart?
First I would like to say this is a gorgeous cover! And although I never read Romance books, I thought of this more as a Christmas book. I even lit a pine candle to get in the mood.
Macy and her friends, Greer, Ella and Miss Thing, are running a successful matchmaking service in Charleston.
Deacon Banks has followed his famous Aunt Fran to Charleston for a month and has promised her he will at least date some potential love interests while he is there, but he falls hard for Macy the moment he sees her.
How could you not fall in love in Charleston at Christmas time? Well, Macy is trying awfully hard not to do that.
The descriptions of Charleston were wonderful as was the food and traditions. Even I was not immune to the charm of Macy and her lovable cast mates!
A holiday book I would highly recommend! And there’s Coconut Cake Y’all!
