The Icing on the Cake

Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match . . . dot com! An online dating service is not Michelle Snow''s idea of how to find love, but when the Big 3-0 hits, Michelle decides she has nothing to lose since she hasn''t brought a date home in ten years, she''s professionally burned out, and her climb up the corporate ladder has come at the expense of abandoning her sweet dream: to own a boutique cupcakery.
 
Todd Bracken, early thirties and a successful technology consultant, isn''t exactly a player after being off the market for ten years, and pours himself into his dual passions of martial arts and home-sweet-home renovations. Only there''s no one to come home to so he decides to give Match.com a try. Todd isn''t so sure the Internet dating scene is his thing-until a message pops up in the wee hours on a weekend night: ''I like your smile.'' Todd likes-a lot-the whole package that glides into a French bistro in Washington, D.C.
 
It''s serious mojo-at-first-sight but there''s a glitch: Todd and Michelle live in different cities. Will love find its way in the digital age with a ''You''ve Got Mail'' courtship when video cam kisses just aren''t enough? And when Todd challenges Michelle to not only go for her dream but let him share it, will they be able to make it happen together despite obstacles more plentiful than a shower of rainbow sprinkles?

Read from the Book

*Snowflake: coconut bottom with coconut vanilla buttercream top ''"MICHELE! DANA''S HERE!" Elbowing open her bedroom door while fastening the clasp on her necklace, Michelle Snow called out, ''Be right there!'' in response to Christina''s update. Liz, one of the foursome, was already in the tiny kitchen, brewing coffee and mixing a pitcher of mimosas for the weekend brunch. Dana, not surprisingly, was the last to arrive. She''d marched to a different drummer-and kept time to a different clock-as long as the four Alpha Phi sisters had been friends. It had been too long since the group had gotten together, and Michelle was thrilled to be the one playing hostess this time. Yes, they''d be doing a lot of stepping around one another in her pint-sized condo, but she knew not a one of them cared. They had food, drink, and the best of company with whom to share the afternoon-not to mention months'' worth of gossip to catch up on. And her place, well, if nothing else, it offered an intimacy no Friendship Heights venue could. Taking one last look at her reflection, Michelle smoothed the skirt of the dress she''d changed into after making sure the table was set and the food ready. She loved dressing up as much as she loved cooking and entertaining-all joys instilled by her mother through the years. If she turned out to be half the hostess Ann Snow was, Michelle would consider it one of her life''s greatest accomplishments. With that thought came a smile that warmed her all the way to he

About the Author

Alison Kent was a born reader, but it wasn''t until she reached 30 that she knew she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. Five years later, she made her first sale. Two years after that, she accepted an offer issued by the senior editor of Harlequin Temptation live on the ''Isn''t It Romantic?'' episode of CBS''s 48 Hours. The resulting book, Call Me, was a Romantic Times finalist for Best First Series Book.

With her first three Temptations on the shelf, she took a break from writing romance novels and spent a few months living one, finding her own hero and practicing every technique she''d learned from a lifetime of reading the best ''how-to'' manuals around! She currently lives in Houston, Texas with her petroleum geologist husband and two rescue dogs, one a Hurricane Katrina survivor.

Alison''s 2009 Harlequin Blaze, A Long, Hard Ride, part of Harlequin''s 60th Anniversary celebration, was nominated for a 2009 Reviewer''s Choice Award for Best Harlequin Blaze of 2009. Striptease, a 2003 release from Harlequin Blaze and part of her popular gIRL-gEAR series, was also an RT Reviewer''s Choice Award nominee.

Her 2005 Kensington Brava release, The Beach Alibi, was a nominee for the national Quill Awards, sponsored by Reed Business Information. Alison is also the author of The Complete Idiot''s Guide to Writing Erotic Romance  and a partner in the Access Romance author community and in DreamForge Media as a website designer.
