The Summoner’s Mark Book 2


My name is Rebecca Naomi Greenblatt, but my friends call me Becs. A birthmark on the inside of my wrist—the Kiss—marks me as a summoner, a person who can call forth entities of power, and negotiate with them on behalf of clients who need answers—or favors—from beings above their karmic pay grade.

But the only mark I’m worried about right now is the great big target on my back.

I got in deep with a demon and some fae folk, and now both Faerie and Hell are interested in me—a dangerous position for a mortal woman to be in. Meanwhile, the one person whose attention I do want, skipped town after a single night of passion. Asher might be sexy as sin, but he has his secrets. Just like me.

So now I’m stumbling along, doing my best to stay alive. Faerie and Hell have power and influence to spare. And what are my assets? A bartending job, a six-foot tall pink fairy friend, chardonnay-swilling dwarves…and oh, yeah, a meddling mobster who thinks he can control me.

As I dig into what’s going on, I find secrets on top of secrets. What does Faerie want with me? What does Hell want with Faerie? And what will they do to me when I finally find out the answers?

Because trust me, I will.

The Summoner’s Mark Book 2



If you want to hustle up money fast, bartending at a fae bar is a terrible way to do it. Joey’s bar door opened with a slam as two young men, drunk as skunks, pushed it with their feet.

“Canwegetadrinkaroundhere?” the first one said, sloshing his words together so I had to concentrate to understand what he was saying. They stumbled over one another and cut quite a profile in their rainbow shirts, cargo shorts, Vans, and wrists wrapped in coordinating pink and purple bandanas. They swayed on their feet, and the taller one propped his friend up on the wall, holding him there with a shoulder to protect him from falling. They giggled at some unspoken joke. “They must have come from the Pride Parade downtown,” I whispered to Joey, my half-gnome boss. I found their flamboyant entrance endearing, but by the tapping of her hairy foot, I could tell she wasn’t impressed. “They like to hold it in early September.”

I studied the two men and realized the problem. These guys were human. Utterly, completely, totally, adorably human. I smacked my head with my palm. “Ah, right. They shouldn’t be able to see this place.” An elf I didn’t know stood and cast a glamour so smoothly, I would have missed it if I hadn’t been watching. A gasp spread around the room.
