Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams--whether it's for an hour or a lifetime. But due to a painful past, the British expat has never put her own name on the list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless and commitment-free hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart...
Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI agent. Specializing in financial crimes, he pieces together stories of greed and ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules--until he meets Tilda. He's drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he's the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesn't come with a guarantee...

With exquisite skill, Calhoun melds erotic heat and intense emotions in the second Irresistible contemporary romance (after Afternoon Delight). Daniel Logan, an FBI agent, meets Matilda Davies sitting on a ledge 20 stories above Manhattan. She isn’t suicidal—she just enjoys taking risks. Tilda, the owner of a store that’s about to expand into a global brand, spends most of her time on her business and the rest on her hobby of matchmaking, with little space in her life for a lover. Daniel, besotted, tries to keep her thrill-seeking side satisfied, even as he uses his detective skills to figure her out. Tilda faces a more difficult task: deciding whether to lower her emotional barriers and let Daniel in. That risk might be one ledge too high. Calhoun’s intelligently handled characters, perfect pacing, and smooth plotting elevate familiar themes to the heights of enjoyable entertainment. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency.
