New Release: Capitally Matched by Rachel Holm


Capitally Matched by Rachel Holm

Book one of a new romantic comedy series of interconnected standalones

This condo may not be big enough for the both of them…

Charlotte Reid has always put her family first. Their bookstore was her whole life, but it’s never really felt like hers. Now, Charlotte’s left her small town behind for the chance to do something on her own terms. She needs to stay focused and make the best impression she can; this might be her one shot to change her life. That is, until the borrowed Washington D.C. condo she’s living in just added a distracting new amenity that wasn’t on the list: Hayden Brandt.

It’s always been the plan that Hayden would take the CIO job at his brother’s company when offered it. Unfortunately, Hayden feels stifled by the sense of obligation and worse, now needs to rely on him for a place to live, too.

Looking forward to some space of his own, Hayden’s surprised to find Charlotte already settled into the guest room of his brother’s condo. He figures his unexpected roommate will be easy to ignore, no matter how much her hair shines and her eyes shimmer. But then, the pranks start.

Hayden’s stuck in the past while Charlotte’s looking towards the future. Are these roommates all wrong for each other or might they be capitally matched?

Capitally Matched is the first book in the Brandt Brothers novels, a series of interconnected standalones about five brothers.

In these pages you’ll find forced proximity, a prank war, DC references, gossipy brothers, fabulous friends, a few open-door steamy scenes, lots of laughs, and even more heart. Happily ever after guaranteed! Capitally Matched (Brandt Brothers): 9798986576237: Holm, Rachel: Books

For anyone who has put their faith in themselves and taken a leap; this one’s for you.” _ Literallybookedsolid
This is a wonderfully sweet romance that I thoroughly enjoyed! What sets this book apart is its refreshing lack of the typical third-act breakup drama, allowing readers to enjoy the story of uninterrupted love”._ Shanna, Reviewer for the Cozy Grey Library
The characters are real, nuanced, and I’d love to hang out with them in real life. They’re both trying to find their way, and navigating some tricky situations so we get to watch them grow and figure out who they want to be as the pages turn. I really enjoyed their forced proximity and the way the pranks ultimately led to them getting to know each other better.”_ Brown Paper Bunny



Rachel grew up in Western PA and found her love of reading early in life, supported by her parents with frequent trips to the library and local bookstores. She stumbled into the bookish world in late 2020 and has embraced the lifestyle whole-heartedly, diving headfirst into the Romance genre, becoming a book reviewer and Bookstagrammer. In 2021, she changed careers, taking a job at an indie bookstore and starting her first official novel-length writing project.

Now, Rachel is getting a MFA in Writing Popular Fiction at Seton Hill University and juggling too many story ideas for one brain to handle. She’s excited to continue to share Happily Ever Afters with you that bring the swoons, the spice, and the humor.

When not immersed in her bookish world, you can find Rachel hanging out with her husband and two cats, spending time with friends in the Washington DC area, and rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams.  More information can be found about Rachel at: Rachel W. Holm (
