Jonathan Smitt is running on empty when his old friend, Ace Masters, calls requesting help with his business. With his life in shambles since his wife dumped him eight months ago leaving him with three children and twin infants, his employer went bankrupt, and he just had to sell his house, Ace’s call seems like the answer to all his problems. Unfortunately, his dance with trouble isn’t over with. His wife’s lover calls with a cryptic message, insinuating misfortune if Jonathan doesn’t cooperate.
Visiting her best friend, Gina Masters, in Colorado, Nikki Bradford is enjoying a break from her career as a nanny. Although, it’s not actually a vacation. She’s taking time to figure out what to do since her last assignment ended sooner than expected thanks to her meddling father. She hasn’t made any decisions yet when Ace’s friend Jonathan Smitt moves back to town and needs help with his kids. Despite a less than friendly meeting, Nikki agrees to help. Jonathan Smitt’s redeeming feature is his love for his children. His devotion to them is obvious, almost as obvious as his low opinion of relationships. That’s not a problem for her. She gave up on romance years ago. She has no problem taking care of his children. At least, she didn’t think she did. With him calling to check every hour or so, maybe he doesn’t even trust her that far.
Can the two of them come together to save the family when someone threatens to take the twins? Will Nikki finally overcome the self-esteem issues her father instilled in her and find the strength to help Jonathan fight? Jonathan must recover from the betrayal of his wife and allow Nikki close enough to help, but at what cost?
I really enjoyed getting back to Colorado with the Masters men while I wrote Her Master Match. The brothers have always thought of Jonathan Smitt as their little brother. Having him return home is almost as good as having their sisters back. Unfortunately, Jonathan’s return brings with it unexpected troubles. Trouble is the Masters Men’s specialty. Although the three of them are married now, they still enjoy bringing down the bad guys and they have their work cut out for them in Her Master Match. There’s also the little issue of helping Jonathan get back on the romance train. They want everyone to be as happy as they are, so they are always playing matchmaker.
I hope you enjoy the story. Jonathan and Nikki are special characters I’ve been working with for quite some time. I’m thrilled to introduce you to the two newest members of my Masters Menagerie.
