This was one of those cute light reads that you look for after an intense week. After having worked in the technology industry for so many years, I found myself hooked on reading about the concept of online written through the lens of an author in the early 70's. It was interesting to see that the use of technology that she outlined (but wasn't really feasible at that time) is actually very much possible and in practice today.

This is my first Sally Wentworth novel...and I found that
This was really unabashedly fun and ridiculous. A friendship group of MA and prospective PhD students plot an experiment to determine whether a computer really can match up a relationship eventually leading to a marriage proposal (funny to think they'd pioneer the likes of eHarmony and RSVP decades later).

Wentworth is usually on the mark with the tension sparking out of her main characters; it's just that much easier to read the story when they don't get along at all, knowing that the repression
My sister and I enjoyed this romance about university friends in England who believe that a romance can be orchestrated if the subject is properly researched, and draw lots to see which of them will go to Switzerland to vamp the playboy they've decided to experiment on.. Of course, it works but the heroine falls in love herself, despite her guilty conscience!
Fun little story of early days of on line dating.

Gemma falls in to a scheme thought up by her roommates to make a man propose to her, basing her actions on a computer program. She ends up falling for Paul and feels guilty for pretending to be some one she is not. She believes he loves the pretend person, not her. A nice story overall.

This was a fun read. The plot was unusual and it was humorous. What the heroine and her friends did to the hero was mean, but I think he needed it.
Super cute and fun story. Older, so kind of tame on the sex details, but still a good read.
My favorite Harlequin Romance of all time :)
