“At that moment, she would have given all her worldly possessions to kiss him.”

I love Donna Hatch’s regency romances – they are a fabulous blend of wit and heart… and great kisses too! This charming novella is no exception.

Rowena is such a fun heroine. Her delightful sense of humor and mischievous spirit bring out that side of her childhood friend Evan as well. Since returning from war, he’s gone rather broody so it’s both entertaining and heartwarming to watch Rowena beckon his true personality back to form.

And talk about kisses! WOW! There’s one in particular that’s stick-your-head-in-the-freezer swoonilicious! Keep a fan and fainting couch close at hand for this read 🙂

Bottom Line: The Matchmaking Game by Donna Hatch is a delightful treat for the heart! With sizzling kisses, charming humor, and a tender friendship, it’s the perfect choice for a quick weekend read. You will fall in love with the characters and be sad to bid them farewell. And did I mention the kisses?!?! 😉

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received via Prism Book Tours. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / Such a delight!

KissingBook Level: 4 / Definitely have a fan/fainting couch handy. Stay close to the freezer too.
