A Look at the Power Behind the Power of the Matchmaker Series  

Posted by Heidi

Eighteen months ago twelve award-winning authors were given a challenge--to write a clean romance novel, that takes place in any time period and country of the world, all connected by one thing--the power of the matchmaker.  The story of Pearl, the matchmaker, is told very well in the prequel novella (a must-read and currently FREE!) so there was no mandate on how much or how little the matchmaker should appear in each story.  In one she is a dream, in another a memory, while in others she is a present character in the book.  The task was to come up with a story that is impacted, one way or another, by Pearl and her skills as a matchmaker.  The result?  Twelve romantic, fun, original, diverse and POWERFUL stories.  Now that we are just over halfway through the twelve-month release schedule, let's take a look at what people are saying about the individual books, all of which are stand-alone, original novels by award-winning authors.

Power of the Matchmaker, the prequel novella by Heather B. Moore

" . . . a beautiful story of self-sacrifice and selfless love."  "Couldn't put it down, can't wait for the series."  "This is a fun and inspiring story that readers are not going to want to miss as they begin their journey into the beautiful and magical world of the Power of the Matchmaker series."

Four Chambers by Julie Wright

O'er the River Liffey  by Heidi Ashworth
"I was anxiously reading to see how everything turned out!"  "If you like stories of overcoming obstacles, historical fiction, matchmakers, and finding lasting love then this is it!"  "My heart breaks several times in this book.  That being said, there are wonderful moments of joy as well."
