Harlequin Blaze, Jul 15 2014, $5.50
In New York City, wine connoisseur Molly Grainger has no time to foster a normal long-term relationship as she works diligently long hours to be the best at her vocation. Thus she has no one to escort her to critical events in which she knows she would be more acceptable with a hunk on her arm if she is to make it. Molly turns to the underground Trading Card dating service for a companion; she selects brew master Cameron Crawford.
They agree to a dinner date, but instead of a one night as each advocate, Cameron and Molly begin seeing each other. As they fall in love, neither is comfortable with their feelings as both fears a committed relationship will interfere with each of their particular occupations and devastate their single regiment that enhances their respective profession.
The latest It's Trading Men (see Seduce Me, Choose Me, Have Me and Want Me) romance is a delightful contemporary as the amiable protagonists dread the L word. Although the premise is not new Jo Leigh brews a splendid Manhattan love story.
