Charley is sick of relationships that go nowhere. She wants a man in her life permanently. She's ready to fall in love and settle down, but it seems no man wants the same with her. When she reads an article about ten different ways to melt a man's heart, Charley is inspired! And, who better to try her new ideas on than her office crush, the man she was madly in love with as a teenager, and who has now walked back into her life: Max Harrington! She's sure it's destiny, but her neighbor Damien Giovanni thinks otherwise.

Damien has tried everyway he could think of to get Charley to go out on a date with him. Unfortunately, she only sees him as a playboy. In his heart though, Damien knows that if Charley gave him a chance, he'd be set for life. But when Charley confides her plans to him, Damien is thunderstruck! He knows Max from college, and he knows Max isn't a nice guy. Damien doesn't want to see Charley get hurt so he agrees to help her with the ten ways. He also can't help hoping Charley will start seeing him in a more serious light.

Unfortunately, Charley's crush on Max isn't the only thing getting in the way of Damien winning Charley. Damien has some secrets of his own and unless he confides in Charley, he may even lose their burgeoning friendship. Will this lovelorn pair ever catch a break?

TEN WAYS TO MELT A MAN'S HEART is ten ways to fun from the first page. Though there is little conflict in this story, what conflict there is comes from the characters' emotions and thoughts. As Charley grows closer to Damien, her impression of him changes gradually. Suddenly, her player neighbor is starting to seem like the perfect guy. Charley has some tough decisions ahead of her, but she faces those decisions with humor, thoughtfulness, and a zest for life that really gave this story verve. Even when feeling down, Charley remains optimistic, a most endearing trait. Damien proves to be a great match for Charley. He's been hurt in the past too, so they both have some battle scars to contend with, but like Charley, he's looking to settle down. Damien is a very appealing and sexy character and will definitely touch your heart as he tries to woo Charley by helping her with her plans for Max. His patience is definitely to be commended.

All in all, TEN WAYS TO MELT A MAN'S HEART proves to be a melt worthy story. Damien and Charley's love will definitely create an impression in your heart and mind. Phyllis Campbell, you've penned a winner!
