Certain to appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich, Jennifer Crusie, and Katie MacAlister, Elise Sax’s hilarious series debut introduces matchmaker-in-training Gladie Burger, who stumbles into a dangerous quagmire of murder and red-hot romance. Three months has been Gladie Burger’s limit when it comes to staying in one place. That’s why Gladie is more than a little skeptical when her eccentric Grandma Zelda recruits her to the family’s matchmaking business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. What’s more, Gladie is also highly unqualified, having a terrible track record with romance. Still, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has “the gift.” But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy. When Zelda’s neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family’s drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor’s death was murder. It’s not too long before she’s in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she’s unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first? Praise for An Affair to Dismember “Elise Sax’s new Matchmaker series is off to a rousing start! . . . Sax gives the comic mystery genre a new spin. . . . A fun read sure to entertain.”—RT Book Reviews “Fans of laugh-out-loud romantic suspense will enjoy this new author as she joins the ranks of Janet Evanovich, Katie MacAllister, and Jennifer Crusie.”—Booklist “Elise Sax will win your heart.”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis “In the tradition of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, Elise Sax’s new novel is a funny, sexy ride.”—Valerie Frankel, author of Four of a Kind “What a fun book! It will leave readers begging for more.”—Kim Gruenenfelder, author of There’s Cake in My Future From the Paperback edition.

Fuera de las notas sobre Mauclair y Adam, todo lo contenido en este libro fu� escrito hace doce a�os, en Buenos Aires, cuando en Francia estaba el simbolismo en pleno desarrollo. Me toc� dar a conocer en Am�rica ese movimiento y por ello y por mis versos de entonces, fu� atacado y calificado con la inevitable palabra �decadente...� Todo eso ha pasado,-como mi fresca juventud.Hay en estas p�ginas mucho entusiasmo, admiraci�n sincera, mucha lectura y no poca buena intenci�n. En la evoluci�n natural de mi pensamiento, el fondo ha quedado siempre el mismo. Confesar�, no obstante, que me he acercado a algunos de mis �dolos de anta�o y he reconocido m�s de un enga�o de mi manera de percibir.Restan la misma pasi�n de arte, el mismo reconocimiento de las jerarqu�as intelectuales, el mismo desd�n de lo vulgar y la misma religi�n de belleza. Pero una raz�n autumnal ha sucedido a las explosiones de la primavera.RUB�N DAR�O.Par�s, Enero de 1905.

Scotland 1820 When Zarabeth of Nvengaria is in danger, her cousin Prince Damien knows there's no safer place he can send her than to his old friend Egan MacDonald and his castle in the remote Scottish Highlands. Egan has loved Zarabeth since the day she kissed him in her father’s house five years ago, his young friend having blossomed into a beautiful woman. Since then, Zarabeth has married, but she recently discovered that her husband was a treacherous plotter, ready to overthrow her cousin Damien and take over Nvengaria. She slips away at great risk to herself and informs Damien, who sends her to Scotland, in the company of a half-logosh called Valentin to protect her, out of reach of her cruel and vengeful husband. Egan finds Zarabeth a rigid shell of a woman. He undertakes to strip away the layers she’s been forced to wear, to expose the true, spirited, beautiful Zarabeth he’d known. At the same time, Zarabeth is determined to show Egan how much she cares for him—has always cared for him. She also comes to life in the castle whose beams are likely to fall on her, and which is supposedly under a curse, where Egan’s cousins, sister, nephews, and neighbors swarm at will, returning joy and laughter to Zarabeth’s world. Egan’s nephew Jamie is determined to marry Egan off so Jamie won’t have to inherit, and recruits Zarabeth to help him. Zarabeth falls in love with Castle MacDonald and its inhabitants and never wants to leave—curse or no curse. Zarabeth grows interested in the curse and its history—anything magical fascinates her. She herself has a magical gift, inherited from her Nvengarian mother—she can read thoughts, which was how she learned of her husband’s treachery. But there is one person she’s never been able to read—Egan MacDonald, the Mad Highlander, the man she’d give her heart to, and her entire life if he wished it …
