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.
