About Strike a Match
When Kate’s abusive husband dies in a house fire, she only feels relief. Eighteen months later, she’s ready to sweep up the fragments of her past and venture back into dating—but this time with the help of a professional matchmaking company. Surely Toujour can succeed where Kate has always failed and find her the perfect man.
Taylor is a firefighter who’s tired of dousing infernos in his personal life. Exhausted from a string of dysfunctional relationships, he turns to Toujour at the prodding of a friend, hoping for an easier path to love. The last thing he expects is to be matched with Kate, the intriguing widow he met on the night her house burned. The problem is, she’s determined to leave behind any connection to that awful night—and Taylor is a very overwhelming connection.
Past relationship fears and old habits threaten to tear them apart before they’ve even begun. Can the ashes of their pasts hold their happily ever after?
“Where to?” the cabbie asked.
Taylor looked at Kate. “I know the general area, but I don’t remember the exact address of your home.”
Shadows flicked across her eyes, and she quickly rattled off the address. The cabbie nodded and pulled into the street.
“I’m not some damsel you need to save,” Kate said. “I appreciate your help tonight, but I’m okay now. Don’t feel like you have to help me out of some twisted sense of obligation.”
Taylor’s mouth dropped open. “Is that what you think this is to me—an obligation?”
She shrugged, not meeting his eyes. “You’re a really nice guy, Taylor. But you’re a firefighter. Rescuing people is in your blood. I’m not interested in being rescued—I’m interested in a real relationship. One that’s based on more than a sense of chivalry.”
“Oh, and is that what you were discovering tonight, with the date who couldn’t even call 911?”
Kate’s lips pursed together. “It was our first date. I think Randy was in shock.”
“He didn’t even notice when we left the restaurant. He was too busy screaming at the waitress who served you the dish.”
“People handle stressful situations in different ways. I asked a stranger to come with me to the hospital, for example.”
Taylor never would’ve guessed that quiet, timid Kate could be so stubborn. “I think we’ve moved past stranger, and I’m not here purely out of a sense of chivalry,” he said. “Or did you forget that I was the one who requested a second date?”
