The Matchmaker’s Mark Review by Jordan

Regan Black has delivered yet another great piece of writing to readers with this contemporary paranormal romance. With the Matchmaker’s Mark, Ms. Black has created a web of magic woven through modern-day Charleston. The Matchmaker is a Scottish witch with the power to facilitate romance and compatibility – a particularly useful and dangerous skill among the fantastical and mythical races. But the Matchmaker is an inherited title – and when the mantle unexpectedly passes to an unprepared college professor, the magic beings closest to her find their world turned inside out.

Dare, a high-ranking wood elf, has served the Matchmaker as her personal guard for decades. But when he’s sent away on an errand, Dare finds himself intrigued by a local florist. Trying to forget her is next to impossible – and he can’t afford the distraction with the emergence of a new Matchmaker.

Lily is a half-elf, stuck with a foot in both the human and magic realms – a major roadblock for romance. When a handsome man arrives after hours, Lily finds herself constantly thinking of him. Then word gets out – the Matchmaker is in town. Lily’s ready for answers, but it seems that everyone is looking for their piece of the witch.

A departure from Ms. Black’s usual urban thrillers, The Matchmaker’s Mark is a rare light-hearted paranormal romance that will be loved by fans of both Nora Roberts and Kresley Cole.
