Virtual Book Tour & Giveaway: The Billionaire's Matchmaker Anthology

Billionaire's Matchmaker, an Anthology
by Shirley Jump, Susan Meier, Jackie Braun and Barbara Wallace


Can a feisty four-legged matchmaker help four best friends find the romance of their dreams?

When a handsome man from Gabby’s past agrees to a cross-country road trip, her master plan to re-launch her art career quickly morphs into an unexpected, romantic reunion.

Marney’s 9-1-1 emergency help arrives in the form of a rugged, blue-eyed cop. Now she has the perfect bodyguard to keep her safe during those dark, steamy nights…

The last thing Mia wants is a relationship…yet the headstrong florist can’t keep her hands off her sexy-as-sin ex-boyfriend.  Will she open her heart before he leaves town for good?

Jenny is a woman on a mission – she’ll even resort to dognapping to make her point! But can she teach a reclusive, emotionally-wounded tycoon that love heals all things?


 EXCERPT : from “Driving Mr. Wrong Home” in THE BILLIONAIRE’S MATCHMAKER by Shirley Jump:

All these years, he’d left that one story incomplete, a loose end that threaded through his thoughts. Had he missed his chance with her years before because he hadn’t taken a big enough risk? If he tried again with Gabby, would the results be different this time? There was only one way to know.

"I'd love to hitch a ride with you. It'll be just like old times," he said, taking a step closer, and thinking that was the last thing he wanted was old times and the way things used to be, "you and me together, walking on the wild side."

She raised her chin and met his gaze. "I don't do that anymore. I'm a respectable tax-paying citizen now."

"Pity," he said, while the urge to kiss her and be with her, to be part of her world again, raged inside him, "because you being rebellious was the highlight of my days.”

A smile curved up one side of her face, a smile that told T.J. there was still hope, still a connection, and maybe a little of the old Gabby left after all. “Well, I’d hate to disappoint you, but I’m not planning on ending up in jail on this trip.”

“That’s okay,” he said, meeting her deep green eyes with his own. “Neither do I. I told you, Gabby. I’ve changed.”

She gave him a long, assessing gaze. “That remains to be seen.”

T.J. figured he had hundreds of miles to change her mind about him, and to make up for letting her down in the past. He could only hope they didn’t run out of road before he could make everything right again.
