A Lid for Every Pot? by Macy Beckett + Giveaway!
Greetings, romance lovers. I’m Macy Beckett, and I have a confession for you: I don’t believe in soul mates. Crazy, right? I’m a romance author! Shouldn’t I subscribe to the sentimental notion that we’re all created for that one special someone—the lid to our pot? Alas, for me it’s all about statistics, but more about that later.
Coincidentally, Bobbi Gallagher, the main character in A SHOT OF SULTRY, shares my outlook on the issue—or at least she does at the beginning of the novel. By the end, she changes her tune. Not that I can blame her. Trey Lewis, (who you met in SULTRY WITH A TWIST), is smokin’ hot and really good with his hands. He could probably change my mind, too!
“There’s a lid for every pot. No shame in using the stove once you’ve found your match.”
Her match? Bobbi wrinkled her brow while climbing into her car, and by the time she arrived at the community center, she’d worried a crease into her forehead not even Botox could remove.
She didn’t like her cameraman’s words. They implied she had only one true companion on this vast earth, one fit, and she didn’t believe in soul mates.
Each man and woman had thousands of potentially compatible partners out there. It was just a matter of crossing paths with one of them at the right time. Sure, Trey might be one of those people—or not—but either way, the timing was all wrong. That didn’t mean she’d never find love with another man. Someone who’d make her forget Trey’s dimpled smile and his sapphire eyes.
But when Bobbi pulled into the parking lot beside his Chevy and caught a glimpse of him from afar, her heart catapulted out of her chest. Oh, hell, who was she kidding? No man could ever make her forget Trey Lewis. Still, there was another lid to her pot somewhere out there, and she’d find him when the time was right. She had to believe that.
Like Bobbi, I imagine that a certain number of ideal matches exists for everyone—people with whom we share the utmost in physical attraction, commonality, and emotional compatibility. But if you think about it, discovering one of them at just the right time in both your lives is as rare and special as finding a “soul mate.”
The difference is in the belief (or lack thereof) of destiny, providence, or divination in the selection of our mates. But really, it’s semantics. Either way, finding a solid match to last a lifetime is no easy task.
So how about you, readers? Tell me what you think. Are we destined for one true mate, or is it all about statistical probability?

A SHOT OF SULTRY BY MACY BECKETT – IN STORES MARCH 2013
Welcome to Sultry Springs, Texas: where home can be the perfect place for a fresh start.
For West Coast filmmaker Bobbi Gallagher, going back to Sultry Springs is a last resort. But with her career in tatters, a quick trip to her hometown might get her the footage she needs to salvage her reputation. She just can’t let anything distract her again. Not even the gorgeous contractor her brother asked to watch over her. As if she can’t handle filming a few rowdy Texans.
Golden boy Trey Lewis, with his blond hair and Technicolor-blue eyes, is a leading man if Bobbi ever saw one. He’s strong and confident and–much to her delight–usually shirtless. He thinks keeping his best friend’s baby sister out of trouble will be easy. But he has no idea of the trouble in store for him…
