Rival Hearts by Tara Randel (Quilts Of Love #19)

I know I have stated my happy "addiction" to this book series before. This book is not an exception to that! 
One man and one woman both working for the same company, in different areas, are about to have their lives changed. 

Meet Molly. She has been at this company working on articles and writing for this magazine for ages. She writes all kinds of quilting articles, and she's really senor staff. Molly runs the Quilter's Heart. Molly has a passion for connecting with people through quilting and some outreach. Her "old maid" look shouldn't fool you, this gal is feisty and backbone. 

Meet Ben. He is the guru of all things outdoor and nature that is masculine. He edits and runs Outdoor Adventures. Ben is thought of by his fans like we might thing of Indian Jones meets Marty Stouffer. Well, at least that is the impression I got. 

To via for an upgrade in position, Ben and Molly have to change rolls. Molly has to kayak! She is so not an outdoor woman! Ben, well he has to quilt! The rivalry for the job position is on, but no one was bargaining for possible love in the process. Who is going to win the job, or the heart of someone else?

Tara Randel


Tara Randel has enjoyed a lifelong love of books, especially romance and mystery genres, so it didn't come as a surprise when she began writing with the dream of becoming published. After finding Romantic Times magazine in a bookstore many years ago, she found information about writing organizations. Soon after, she joined Romance Writers of America. She located the local RWA chapter and immediately attended her first meeting. There was no stopping her after that!

Through Tampa Area Romance Authors, Tara learned all about the business of publishing, starting with the craft of writing to behind the scenes of publishing. She served as contest coordinator for four years and served as President for one year, enjoying the organization and the lasting friendships made there.

When not writing, Tara owns a business with her husband and stays busy with her two daughters. She lives on the West Coast of Florida, where gorgeous sunsets inspire the creation of heartwarming stories, filled with love, laughter and the occasional mystery. Enjoy!


Molly Henderson and Ben Weaver have been rival magazine writers for the same publishing group for years. When both come up for the same promotion, they find themselves in an unexpected competition to win the spot. Molly, editor of Quilter’s Heart, and Ben, editor of Outdoor Adventures, must switch roles, each working for the other for one month, then submit an article at the end of their quests.

Can girly-girl Molly survive the outdoor adventures that Ben has planned? Can Ben navigate the perils of the social dynamics of quilting events without destroying a valuable quilt in one short month? More importantly, in this he-said, she-said situation, will Molly and Ben give in to their attraction and fall in love, no matter who wins?
