Many of the most dynamic public companies, from Alibaba to Facebook to Visa, and the most valuable start-ups, such as Airbnb and Uber, are matchmakers that connect one group of customers with another group of customers. Economists call matchmakers multisided platforms because they provide physical or virtual platforms for multiple groups to get together. Dating sites connect people with potential matches, for example, and ride-sharing apps do the same for drivers and riders. Although matchmakers have been around for millennia, they’re becoming more and more popular—and profitable—due to dramatic advances in technology, and a lot of companies that have managed to crack the code of this business model have become today’s power brokers. Don’t let the flashy successes fool you, though. Starting a matchmaker is one of the toughest business challenges, and almost everyone who tries to build one, fails. In Matchmakers, David Evans and Richard Schmalensee, two economists who were among the first to analyze multisided platforms and discover their principles, and who’ve consulted for some of the most successful platform businesses in the world, explain how matchmakers work best in practice, why they do what they do, and how entrepreneurs can improve their chances for success. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an investor, a consumer, or an executive, your future will involve more and more multisided platforms, and Matchmakers—rich with stories from platform winners and losers—is the one book you’ll need in order to navigate this appealing but confusing world.

New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper weaves a tale of secrets, seduction, and a love that will not be denied in this spellbinding Once Upon a Time novel. It’s public knowledge in Richmond that the only wife the infamous Cyrus Fortune wants is one who belongs to some other man. He has a knack for sensing an unhappy bride—and a talent for showing her what she needs to be happy. Obsessed with uncovering the circumstances of his own mysterious birth and the father he never knew, Cyrus doesn’t have the time or patience for a serious romance. Even so, an intelligent man knows when he’s at the crossroads of destiny, the moment when everything in his life changes. For Cyrus, that’s when he meets Julia Drummond. Julia Drummond is painfully aware that no red-blooded woman should be able to deny the sensual assault of Cyrus Fortune, who wears power and influence like a finely tailored suit, and whose eyes promise passionate seduction. Still, she says no. She’s got her reasons—dangerous reasons—and yet she can’t trust her own body and heart from surrendering to the astonishing pleasure Cyrus reminds her she’s capable of simply when his knowing gaze meets hers across a crowded ballroom. He doesn’t know her secret, desperate terrors, but the passion he offers is irresistible. Just once, she tells herself. Just one night to know what sweet sin tastes like. And doesn’t every woman deserve that? This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

A perpetual breeze blows through Amour-sur-Belle, a village so ugly that even the English refuse to live there. Guillaume Ladoucette the barber is forced to give up his business as the advancing age of his customers means many have gone bald.

'Love is like a good cassoulet, it needs time and determination.' But how can a matchmaker make love simmer - when he has not yet solved the problem of his own troubled heart?

From the journal of Miss Olivia Byrde: Lord H...Drinks too much. Ill-mannered and altogether too bold. Though rough-edged, he is tall and reasonably handsome. But he proves the rule that looks can be deceiving. Ill-suited for marriage. Since her entry into society three years ago, Olivia has kept detailed notes on every eligible man with whom she's ever sipped a cup of tea or twirled across the dance floor. Some of her diary entries have resulted in successful matches for her friends, but she's never found any man she considered remotely suitable for herself. But once Lord Neville Hawke comes into her life, the other men in her book look positively perfect. Neville's a notorious scoundrel with a shady and painful past, and a penchant for destroying rooms in fits of drunken rage. A heartbreaker and a rogue, Lord Hawke is the kind of man who knows how to seduce a woman with only his taunting eyes and challenging words. The kind of man to whom a well-bred lady like Olivia is quite definitely immune. Until he kisses her. And in that kiss he lets her know she is his salvation. With each caress he dares her to stop looking in her book and start listening to her heart. For two very stubborn souls have just found their perfect match...
