First in a sizzling new series from Jennifer Probst, the USA Today bestselling author adored for her "fresh, fun, and sexy" (Romancing the Book) storytelling
In charming Verily, New York, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best girlfriends. But Kate's more than a savvy businesswoman: She's gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love's magic is at work. It rocked her when she picked up a strange volume of love spells in the town's used bookstore . . . and it zapped her again when she encountered Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered--and hot-bodied-- divorce lawyer who storms into Kinnections demanding proof that playing Cupid won't destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate's newest client. The only way to convince this cynic that she's no fraud, and that love is no mirage, is for Kate to meet his audacious challenge: find him his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her electrifying attraction nearly knocked her off her feet? Or has the matchmaker finally met her match?

Kate Seymour runs a successful matchmaking business, Kinnections, using “science and skill” as well as her inherited ability to find a soul mate with a magic, electric touch. Cynical divorce lawyer Slade Montgomery thinks love is a by-product of oxytocin and that Kate’s agency is a fraud that preys on the desperate and lonely. When he becomes a Kinnections client to prove his point, his list of traits desired in a woman makes it clear that Slade and Kate are beyond incompatible, and she dutifully tries to find him a partner. But the literal crackle of electricity when they touch tells Kate that Slade is her destined love. Bestseller Probst (the Marriage to a Billionaire series) creates a likable cast, refreshing female friendships, and a slight paranormal element that enliven this otherwise predictable opposites-bicker-their-way-into-bed story, and Kate’s paraplegic pit bull, Robert, steals the show.
