He was the most-sought-after male in town and he wanted Lauren Fletcher to find him a wife. Matchmaking was Lauren's business, but she'd never thought Matt Whittaker--gorgeous, rich and powerful--would need her type of help. Yet the tycoon insisted only Lauren could get him the woman he wanted.
After spending several days--and nights--together, Lauren soon suspected that not just any woman was going to fulfill Matt's needs. Perhaps the only woman able to capture the tycoon's heart was the matchmaker herself!

1 . Felt nothing at all for story or character's...
Posted November 18, 2008 by Lena , HawaiiThis is a story you would read only, when it's the only thing in your library left to read. Pass on it if you can help it. I couldn't adapt to the story and i couldn't feel or like anything at all for both character's. Which was strange to me considering that I know Ms. Depalo can write better then this and has! I recommend to reader's who are looking to try a book by Ms. Depalo that they should start with "CEO's marriage seduction. it's world's better then this one and well worth the time it would take to finish it.

Excerpt from Captivated by the Tycoon by Anna DePalo
He was the last man she wanted to see. The last man she expected to see in her reception room. Matthew Whittaker was heir to one of Boston's great fortunes and witness to the most humiliating day of her life.
Lauren came to a halt inside the discreet office doors of Ideal Match. She was unaccustomedly late, thanks to a luncheon appointment that had run overtime and the snow flurries of the uncooperative January weather. Hurried and breathless, she fought to slow her breath as her eyes connected with his.
He was already unfurling himself from his position on the couch, and she steeled herself against his looming presence.
"Your two o'clock appointment is here."
Her gaze cut across the reception room to Candace, who raised her eyebrows and opened her eyes wide, then back to the man who stood facing her.
Stalling for time to regain her composure, she slowly walked toward him. "Matt," she acknowledged, relieved that her voice sounded close to normal. "This is a surprise."
"Hello, Lauren," he said. "It's been a while."
When she'd last seen him, he'd been wearing a black tuxedo with a boutonniere of stephanotis. The stephanotis had had fake pearls threaded through their centers, just as she'd requested. It had been her wedding, after all.
The look in his blue-velvet eyes on that day five years ago had been unsettling, but then she'd always found him disconcerting.
Her high-heeled pumps sounded on the wood floor before they hit the faux Oriental rug covering the center of the reception area. She kept a professional smile on her face as she reached him. "It's lovely to see you again."
