This is a sequel to Yuletide Enchantment and Like Bunnies.
Valentine Holiday loves being single. As the youngest member of the Holiday family, he's in no hurry for the family magic to catch up with him and find him the love of his life. Right before Valentine's Day, he begins getting emails from a dating site he never signed up for. He's sure it's just a hoax--until he meets Corazon Lopez.
Cora doesn't have time for romance. The busy social worker is sure her friend must have signed her up when emails start arriving about her "perfect match". Then she meets Val Holiday in person and all bets are off. Between forced vacation time and a free trip to a tropical resort, the fates seem determined to throw them together--along with a private suite and plenty of sex toys.
Val and Cora realize they're in for the sexual frolic of their lives. They're not so sure about falling in love, but the Holiday magic may have other ideas.

Excerpt from Valentine's Heart by Cindy Spencer Pape
"No way in hell am I signing up for an internet dating service."
Famous last words.
Val Holiday looked at the email on his oversized, flat-screen monitor and sighed. Which one of his siblings had set him up?
To: Valentine Holiday
Welcome to Compu-Cupid, home of the perfect match. Eros' arrows always aim true. Based on your profile, Eros himself has selected your ideal mate. Expect her to get in touch within the next twenty-four hours. Thank you for choosing Compu-Cupid.
He deleted the email with a growl. It had to be Noel or Star. Ever since his oldest brother and youngest sister had each gotten married last year, they'd been determined to fix up their remaining three siblings. The only problem was Val didn't want to be fixed up. He liked being twenty-eight--well, almost twenty-nine--healthy, relatively wealthy and single.
The only way to stop this was to unsubscribe. He hit undelete to retrieve the message and followed the link to the company's website where he ought to be able to remove his profile. Really, they had to let people quit, right?
When Val reached his profile, there was a big red notice stamped across the top. Match determined. Nothing he tried would let him get into the profile to actually delete it. None of his siblings' usual passwords--and as the IT director of the family company where they all worked, Val knew them all--did the trick. It was two a.m., too late to call for information. Huh. He ran through a couple more passwords--his sister-in-law's, even his mom's and his dad's. It was no secret his parents wanted more grandchildren, though with Noel's wife Shelby due to pop in a month or two, they ought to be focusing on her or Star and Theo at the very least.
Not on Val. While he liked the idea of being the cool uncle, he was in no hurry at all to be a parent himself.
Nope. The parental passwords didn't work either. Damn it, what good was being a natural-born hacker if he couldn't get himself off some crappy-assed dating site?

In her cramped excuse for an office, Corazon Lopez stared sleepily at her computer monitor, sipping at her third cup of coffee. How had this dating site crap not gone into her spam filter? Then again, what Cora knew about computers was pretty much how to turn them on, check her email and write reports.
On the other hand, her roommate Marla had been trying to fix her up lately. Maybe this was Marla's idea of a pre-Valentine's practical joke. Cora sighed. Good lord, was she going to have to go through this kind of crap for the next week until the fourteenth?
She definitely needed more coffee.
To: Corazon Lopez
Welcome to Compu-Cupid, home of the perfect match. Eros' arrows always aim true. Based on your profile, Eros himself has selected your ideal mate. Expect him to get in touch within the next twenty-four hours. Thank you for choosing Compu-Cupid.
Funny, she'd never heard of Compu-Cupid, not even on late-night radio ads. Where the hell had Marla dug this one up?
Well, right now, Cora didn't have time to deal with it. She had a couple scheduled in five minutes to talk about what little help could be provided now that both of them were out of work. Feeding the kids was the easy part. Getting them breakfast and lunch at school was just a matter of filling out the right paperwork, and Cora could swing food stamps. But trying to help them keep a roof over their heads--that was going to take some work.
Cora yawned and chugged the rest of her coffee. Last night, she'd been called in by the cops after a domestic violence incident, which meant she'd gotten about three hours of sleep. Sometimes she felt as if she were tilting at windmills 24/7. At just thirty-two, she felt more like eighty.
And Marla thought she had time to date?
