BioPrior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today Bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. A hybrid author, Melinda has written for Harlequin, Grand Central Forever and Caezik Romance, mostly sweet romance and sweet romantic comedies. One of her Harlequin books – Dandelion Wishes – was made into a 2020 TV movie – Love in Harmony Valley. She recently came to grips with the fact that she’s an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than movies made from her books or jet-setting on a potty.
I love a sweet second chance romance and this one had me reading past my bed time! Sweet characters and two chance meetings. Awesome!

And now they need to put up or shut up. There’s no harm in placing a bet with a hockey team owner – make 6 love matches in the small town of Kenkamken Bay, Alaska, by Valentine’s Day to earn jobs in his hockey organization in the Lower 48.
