Synopsis:

Dylan Bradley, who once illustrated steamy romances under the name Patrick Callaghan, has moved into his grandparent’s guest house in Nashville.

Caylor Evans, having once written titillating novels under the penname Melanie Mason, lives with her grandmother. When their lives collide, due to the machinations of meddling matriarchs, the pasts of Dylan and Caylor threaten to derail their futures.

Will they accept each other for who they now are—and once were? Or will they never discover the true art of romance?
Beautiful professor Caylor Evans has a secret identity - she's a romance writer known as Melanie Mason.  With gorgeous cover models as her muse, she can't keep the stories from pouring out.  Little does she know that the amazing illustrator of the covers isn't who she thinks he is.  When she first meets handsome artist and new teacher at her college Dylan Bradley - something seems familiar but she just can't quite place it.

With all the secrets, will Dylan and Caylor be able to learn to accept one another for who they really are?

A certain meddling Grandmother is determined to find Caylor a man, she decides it's time to renovate their home.  With everything in mind, she finds a sexy, young contractor that might catch a certain granddaughter's eye.  Little does she know, that Caylor has other plans in mind.

I really enjoyed the second book in the Matchmaker's series.  We get to know Caylor, best friend to the main character in "Love Remains" - who is now getting married.  This is causing some major inner turmoil with Caylor, she's not sure how to deal with all of it.  On top of all that, she's falling for Dylan who has some pretty major issues of his own.  Can they work through all these and admit they are falling for one another?  Or will it push them farther apart?

One of the things I really love about this author, is how she weaves so many lives into one great story.  Each character is fun, well written and relate-able.  They all have inner turmoils, problems, family issues, sibling rivalry, which I found amazing. 

I can't wait for more by this author!
