What’s as much fun as a sexy, devilishly handsome Cynster man? Why, a smart, sassy Cynster lady! With the new installment in the ever popular Cynster chronicles, readers will enjoy a humorous, uplifting romp of a read.

With her no-nonsense approach to life, spinster Henrietta Cynster has no delusions about love, but to please her cousin she wears a family heirloom that is said to bring the wearer love. She’s known as “The Matchbreaker,” especially after she prevents an innocent from marrying James Glossup. Longstanding rivals, the Cynsters and Glossups are almost as high on the feuding scale as the Capulets and Montagues. Still, Henrietta feels a bit guilty about ruining James’ chance to inherit a fortune and agrees to help him find a bride. Then, the strangest thing happens: Henrietta is unwillingly, unexpectedly and unstoppably attracted to James, who begins desiring her. The couple finds that a little magic goes a long way to bring them together. (AVON, Apr., 384 pp., $7.99)
