Today’s Wednesday Wonders features Elaine Cantrell and her contemporary romance, The Captain and the Cheerleader.

Book Description:

Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.


Susan bounced out of her car with a smile on her face. Usually she dreaded Monday morning, but not today. Today she felt better, and she’d have that talk with Kurt. On the way to her mailbox in the faculty lounge, she mentally rehearsed what she would say when Kurt asked to see her again. Turning the corner into the room, she was greeted by a roomful of teachers, about half of whom clapped and cheered her arrival.

Don Brooks laughed and handed her an envelope. “We’ve been waiting for you. We hear that you won some money over the weekend.”

“I told them you went out with him on Saturday,” Melissa explained.

Robin appraised Susan with a gleam in her eyes. “I underestimated you, Susan. How did you do it?”

Susan shrugged. “I let him know I was interested. He did the rest.”

“Well, I guess you deserve to win.”

Susan handed the envelope back to Don. “I don’t want anyone’s money. I wish I’d never made that
stupid bet, and I don’t want any part of it. Just take your money back.”

“No, you won it fair and square,” insisted Robin. “Take it.”

“I won’t do that, Robin.”

Kurt arrived just in time to hear Susan’s answer. “Won’t do what?” he asked as he stepped into the lounge and approached her side. He had a nice little smile on his face that made her think he was glad to see her.

The air in the lounge turned positively electric.

Wednesday Wonders: THE MATCHUP

Today's Wednesday Wonders features THE MATCHUP by Laura Walker.

About the Book:

The last thing Valerie wants or needs is to work for Gage, whom she loathed as a teen. But Valerie's husband just walked out on her. Now she needs a job. Gage, on the other hand, has just taken custody of his four-year-old son and is swamped trying to balance his career, be a daddy, and fix past mistakes. Together they discover that when it comes to the Church and each other, it's all about second chances. This sweet LDS romance will renew your faith in love and redemption.


The grim line of Gage's mouth told her all she needed to know about how he felt about missions. He obviously hadn't come back into the Church, she thought sadly. He was one against the world, a feeling she was very familiar with lately. For some strange reason, the thought made Valerie want to wrap her arms around him.

Which, of course, she would never do.

"What's wrong, Gage?"

He shrugged as if whatever was bothering him was of no consequence, but Valerie recognized the signs of someone in distress--the averted gaze and loud swallowing. The jawline that was tight enough to crack his teeth.

And although he was obviously trying for a light tone, Valerie didn't miss the strain in his voice. "I'm just trying to figure a few things out. Mainly, I've decided that I need to file for custody of my four-year-old son, but the logistics of that change will difficult to work around, especially where my job is concerned."

She hadn't known that he'd gotten married. No sooner had that thought come than when another followed, which formed a sick feeling in her stomach. What if he hadn't married her?
