Men Wanted—because sometimes love matches need a little magic.
Andrew ‘Duff’ Wagner goes straight to the gods to get his love match made. He relies on Men Wanted, the matchmaking service run by Apollo, Artemis, and Eros to find his perfect match. He’s in love with a certain lawyer, but there can’t be enough magic in the cosmos to get them together, right?
Christian Foley knows exactly who he wants as his match, but he works with Men Wanted to find the perfect partner. He’s got a thing for Duff Wagner and won’t rest until he gets a date. Christian and Duff might have a chance if only Duff’s ex would stop butting in. When he finally hooks up with the sexy shop owner, they have to decide if their passion will go up in flames or start the fire to last forever.

“You look happy.” Mary, his secretary, arranged the files on her desk, then rolled away from her computer. “Hot date?”
“Actually, yes. I’m heading to the baseball game.”
“You?” She folded her hands on her lap. “You aren’t into sports.”
“I love baseball.” He normally kept his private life to himself, so he didn’t discuss that he’d gone to the game the night before.
“Since I went to my first game when I was six. My dad took me and it was bat day. I still have the bat, too. I fell in love with the sport, and I’m a devoted Cincy fan. Good or bad, I’m a fan.” He checked the stack of his messages. “I’m out. I need an evening with no law and lots of relaxation.”
“Why do I have the feeling you get emotionally involved in your sports? Are you going to see the Grinders game?” she asked.
“I do get invested.” The tips of his ears burned. “But I’m finally going on a date, so there’s that.”
“You are?” She applauded. “Good. I hope it works out and leads to something great.”
“Me, too.” He winked. “See you in the morning.” He strolled out of the main office to the parking lot. The firm wasn’t big and was rarely full. That’s what he loved about Mooresville―it wasn’t a big city. Everyone knew everyone else. Within hours of him going out, everyone would know he’d chosen Duff. Good. He wanted them to know. He wanted to shout to the whole world he’d picked this man.
He unlocked his car and slid behind the wheel. He should go home and change before attending the game, but he didn’t have time. He drove across town to the park. The Grinders weren’t a major league team, but they were popular in Mooresville. Their ballfield was part of the city park, meaning there was a lot of parking and seating. He wanted to be visible, so he parked under one of the lights and waited for Duff. A few people were already there, and the teams were on the manicured turf, stretching.
“You made it.” Duff strolled along the sidewalk. “I thought you’d change your mind.”
“Me? Nah.” Not a chance he’d forget to be here for this. “You’re here.”
“Did you think I’d leave you without a word?”
