"Fast-paced, characters you can believe in, romance and faerie folk....what more could you ask for?"

Nick is always in trouble due to women. They just can't seem to keep their hands off him...and he can't seem to keep it in his pants. But one rain filled night, Nick finds his life taking an unexpected turn. As a woman runs out in front of him on the interstate and he crashes, he realizes that contrary to popular belief, they're really are other creatures in the world.

After being cast out of the Faerie realm for granting a wish that didn't go well, Calliope must complete a new task: enlist Nick's help and match-make three couples destined to be together. Easier said than done. Nick is driving her wild. But if she doesn't fulfill her mission, she'll be living her life as a mortal. Then again, would it be so bad if she could spend her life with Nick?

The Matchmakers by Jennifer Colgan is a very exciting read. This is the first book I've picked up by this author and I have to say I'm very intrigued. She wove an enticing web of passion, romance, paranormal and suspense leaving me breathless and dying for more. Nick is a playboy. He doesn't care that the women he's with aren't looking for something more substantial. He's a fly by the seat of his pants type of guy—a love 'em and leave 'em type. Calliope on the other hand is sweet, innocent and a total heart-breaker. I just knew she'd give Nick a run for his money. Fast-paced, characters you can believe in, a strong romance and faerie folk....what more could you ask for in a top read?

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but they just might make a perfect match…

Nick Garret is flypaper for females, and he likes it that way. Women stick for a while, and when it’s over they fly away. So does he. Then one rain-slick night a young woman steps in front of his pickup truck, and his jaded, cynical life takes a sharp swerve toward trouble.

Calliope did the only thing she could think to get Nick to steer his truck—and his life—in a new direction. Banished from the Fae realm for granting a wish gone bad, her punishment is an impossible task; redeem the unredeemable Nick Garret. If she fails to help him pair three couples in everlasting bliss, he’s doomed to never experience real love. And she will share his fate—as a mortal.

Nick can’t decide if this charming, exasperating woman is a dream come true, or a saucy, sexy nightmare sent to drive him insane. Yet something about her makes him want to rise to her challenge. He’ll do anything to make her stick around a while.

Besides, how much trouble can one half-naked, seemingly wingless faerie be?
