I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season. It’s hard to believe Christmas is so close, and even harder for me to believe I have a new book releasing in two weeks! A Match for Meghan was a blast to write. Meghan is quirky and lovable in spite of her imperfections.
Here is the back cover copy, followed by a sneak peek. :)
MEGHAN BLACK HAS FINALLY MET HER MATCH
The veterinary assistant never backs down from a dare…and what greater challenge than finding die-hard bachelor Ben Young his ideal mate? But what’s an incurable cupid to do when the handsome vet turns the tables and asks her out?
Ben is perfectly content with his single life. And he figures there’s only one way to get the petite dynamo to quit her matchmaking—date her himself! But his plan backfires when he realizes that Meghan could be The One. Can he convince a woman who believes in happy endings for everyone but herself that he’s her Mr. Right?
“Ahh!” Arms flailing, Meghan Black fought to maintain her footing on the vet clinic’s slippery floor. She squeezed her eyes shut, anticipating the impact with the hard linoleum. But it never came. Strong arms snatched her up.
“Easy there, Meghan. We don’t want you breaking your neck.” Dr. Ben Young escorted her out of harm’s way, then released his firm, but gentle hold on her arm. “I spilled my coffee as I walked in, and was getting ready to wipe it up when you burst through the door.”
“I didn’t burst, but thanks for the save.” She looked around. “Where’s Emma?” Dr. Young’s jewel of an assistant was always prompt and generally cleaned up any spills her boss made. He reminded her of an absentminded professor, except when he worked with the animals—then he was totally focused.
“Emma is sick today.” He pivoted and headed down the hall, presumably to fetch paper towels.
“Oh.” She walked behind the counter and deposited her purse on a hidden shelf, then meandered down the hall to the kennel room. “Good morning, fellas.”
Several dogs barked their greetings.
“You’re first, girl,” Meghan said to a chocolate lab. She grabbed a leash, opened the kennel and clicked the leash onto the dog’s collar. “Let’s take a little walk, Trixi.” She led the dog out the back door. Cool air snaked down her back. She should’ve grabbed her coat. Too bad Emma was out today. She wanted to discuss the dare Emma had tossed at her last night: find Dr. Young the perfect match. Not one to back down on a dare, she was determined to prove she could do it. Too bad he didn’t possess the same finesse with women that he had with animals.
“What do you think, Trixi? Is setting Dr. Young up a good idea?”
Trixi barked and wagged her tail.
Meghan laughed. “Okay then. It’s game on.” She led the dog back inside and put her into the kennel, then strode to the front counter. She grabbed a pen and wrote Dr. Young across the top of a scratch pad. Tapping the pen against her chin, she looked at the ceiling. There had to be a woman out there who was a perfect fit for him. Dr. Young was a catch. Though nearing his late thirties, he looked much younger than his age. From what she had heard, he ran several miles a day, and it showed—he had a lean, lightly muscled body. He reminded her of Patrick Dempsey with his dark wavy hair and soft baby blues. Plus, he seemed to have a big heart, at least with the animals in the clinic.
She slapped her hand over the paper and looked up. “You startled me.” She flipped over the notepad and glanced up into her boss’s face.
