"Not all matches are made in the Heavens...."

Lucille Wainwright is your average hardworking non-magical witch. Unable to do the simplest spell, she opens her own business, Knowing that paranormals all have their own little quirks to put up with, she runs a successful matchmaking service for them. There is only one client she can not find a match for, the deposed king of the Titans, Jager Cronus.

Cronus, goes on every date Lucille sets up for him, knowing they won't work out. From the first day he laid eyes on Lucille, it is her, and her only, he wants. Fed up with being unable to break through her professional facade, He demands a date with her to the annual Legion Halloween Dance. She counters that he has to go on two other Paramatch dates first, hoping he will find love.

Just when things start looking up for the couple, Cronus learns of a plot to overthrow the Witches council, led by his ex-wife. The Witches Council is the governing body over all paranormals, and is sworn enemy of the Titans. However, the Council is also the home to Lucille's family.

Cronus knows he wants Lucille for eternity, but with all that conspires to come between them, that may not happen. But he is a Titan and he is willingly to fight for her, against all the odds, even another uprising.

The short story was quite entertaining and packed full of surprises. A quick read that I couldn't put down. Packed with so many different things happening, I couldn't wait to get to the end and see if the couple overcame the problems and had a HEA. This is a short story that surprised me, you get more than what you expected. I would gladly recommend this story.
