The Art of Romance (The Matchmakers) Kaye Dacus

Book Description:  Author Kaye Dacus will ignite your love of romance with book 2 of her Matchmakers series. Dylan Bradley, who once illustrated steamy romances under the name Patrick Callaghan, has moved into his grandparent’s guest house in Nashville. Caylor Evans, having once written titillating novels under the penname Melanie Mason, lives with her grandmother. When their lives collide, due to the machinations of meddling matriarchs, the pasts of Dylan and Caylor threaten to derail their futures. Will they accept each other for who they now are—and once were? Or will they never discover the true art of romance?

My Review:  Two career minded adults with two very determined and scheming grandmothers! 
Twenty-eight year old Dylan Bradley is an artist and an art professor who has just moved back to Nashville, Tennessee after losing his job due to an affair. Thirty-four year old Caylor Evans is an English professor who writes novels when she is not lecturing.
Dylan and Caylor cross paths and are attracted to each other but both have issues and shame from their pasts so move on hoping to forget the other.
Their sweet but scheming grandmothers know that these two are "right" for each other.  They scheme and scheme only there's a few twists and turns that no one expected!
This fun, fast read is sure hit  for all us dyed in the wool romance fans! Serious issues are addressed in this read but hope, forgiveness and acceptance prevail!
The Art Of Romance is the second book is the Matchmakers Series. Many helpful hints and explanations were given when issues touched in the first book, Love Remains, were dealt with in The Art of Romance and I did not need to refer back to Love Remains for more information.
I enjoyed this fun read!  
Be sure to grab The Art of Romance when it releases in May of 2011!
