From the Author

This special bonus edition was created to give readers a chance to experience both the lighter and edgier sides of my storytelling. Justice Incarnate is an action-packed, darker, urban fantasy while The Matchmaker's Mark is great when you need a more lighthearted, unique paranormal romance.
Both novels in this 2-in-1 are the first novels in their respective series and this edition will only be available for a limited time.

In my opinion, Regan Black has a winner with THE MATCHMAKER'S MARK. It's a fun paranormal romance, the first book in a new series. The matchmaker's mark is a magical mark that identifies individuals meant to be together. I loved how the romance progressed between Dare and Lily, although I did get a bit frustrated with Lily at times because she was so reluctant to believe. I also enjoyed the progression of the story of the matchmaker. We get a brief glimpse of a new matchmaker in the making, leaving us with a number of questions. Where is the former matchmaker and what happened to her? And we just barely get introduced to Grant Barclay, an angry werewolf, and Mac - a guardian, perhaps? I think there are some interesting stories to come!

If you are looking for an entertaining and light-hearted read, THE MATCHMAKER'S MARK is for you. It is a love story with a hint of mystery, a dose of magic and a promise of more to come. There is a good, even pace to the story that makes you want to just keep turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more in the series. The book was provided to me, by the author, for review as a beta reader.

This was a cute novel, a reader who enjoys romance will not be disappointed. The characters are are interesting, the match making part is a unique twist. Lily could get a little bit too inquisitive at times, but she's a likable character. The love interest is charismatic, handsome, and generally a fun character to read about. The reader will enjoy watching their relationship grow and develop.

The author writes very smoothly, there aren't any choppy transitions. The reader will be left with questions, but it can be something to look forward to in the next books. The plot is very intriguing, can't say too much about it without giving something away. The author handles the idea of elves and match-making very well, almost makes the concepts believable to the reader. The ending was sweet and satisfying. This book is recommended to adult readers.

The Matchmaker's Mark is filled with beautiful magic as well as romance, mystery and no shortage of intrigue. I was entralled with Amy's journey of discovery as well as that of sweet Lily. Lily's love of flowers and the magic she sprinkled so lovingly for the patrons of her shop had me smiling with every turn of the page. Amy's need to see the logic in what transends logic and to do whatever necessary to come to terms with her new reality kept me reading way, way past bedtime. Dare and Cade are nothing short of seriously sexy! Ms. Black's relentless pacing and extraordinary skill at creating rich, intriguing characters cast a spell of its own. The setting details were expertly woven and added yet another layer of interest and texture. Simply put, I was swept away!

4 1/2 stars

Lily is content with her life. As half elf/half human, it's difficult to fit into either world, so owning her own flower shop in Charleston, SC is good for her. She yearns to find her own true love some day, but with over-protective brothers and magic that is unstable at best, she doesn't hold out much hope.

Dare is a full wood elf who is personal guard to the infamous Matchmaker. His family isn't thrilled with his job choice, but it works for him. He's a bit puzzled, and more than a bit put out, when the Matchmaker sends him on a personal errand to hand deliver a letter to her niece, but hey, it's his job.

Amy is an English teacher. Along with her greyhound Guinness; she is combining work with pleasure by co-teaching a course with her best friend Maeve and staying in her house with her. Who could complain about spending January in Charleston instead of snowy Nebraska? Her whole life she has been receiving cryptic letters from her Aunt Camille that she thinks of as just her aunt being eccentric. She is about to find out that there is more to Aunt Camille's letters than meets the eye.

Lily, Dare and Amy's lives are on a collision course that will result in a little romance, a little magic and encounters with all sorts of creatures outside of the human realm.

The Matchmaker's Mark is a complete turnaround from Ms. Regan's Justice series. It's light and fun, full of romance, fantasy and humor. Ms. Regan couldn't write a bad book if she tried, thankfully she didn't try. Lilly and Dare live in a world of elves, werewolves, mermaids, trolls and other things that go bump in the night and are comfortable there.

Poor Amy is brought kicking and screaming into this world.

There is much going on in this story, but it's not difficult to follow.

It's set in Charleston and revolves around Amy, a guest English professor at the local college; Lily, the local florist (and half wood elf); and Dare, wood elf and security detail for the Matchmaker (who is also Amy's Aunt.) Lily was born with a mark that her family always called a Matchmaker's mark, but has not yet found that special someone. Amy is a human just beginning to scratch the surface of her Aunt's letters and legacy, on the cusp of finding out just how magical the world is. Dare has disappointed his elf family by choosing to be part of security to the Matchmaker instead of settling down and carrying on the family line.

Fate has her own ideas, and intertwines their lives in unexpected ways...

It was an entertaining story, I didn't have any trouble wanting to read it. The description of Charleston was lovely, I felt like I was right there walking down the streets with the characters. It really built the story in a lovely way, little bits here, little bits there... things that you thought were just 'background color' fall together into the overall story. I really liked it overall.

.. But I didn't love it. By the end, especially the last chapter or so, I was frustrated with one of the main characters. Getting her to admit that she was in love and just be happy was like pulling teeth. It's like I had to fight tooth and claw to get that Happily Ever After. I still enjoyed it, but it's not going to be in future reading rotation with my favorites. I'm not sure if this is planned as a series, but there were also parts of the story line that felt still unfinished.
