She is honey to his throat…but one sweet taste could part them forever…
Banished from home while her husband adjusts to life as an immortal, blood-drinking chronicler, Emily Black is homesick, heartsick and struggling under the constant sensory barrage of a city drenched in ancient magic. When an old friend asks for her aid in solving a string of murders, she welcomes the distraction, despite the danger.
Justine Dubois is grateful for a seer’s help, and more understanding than anyone of Emily’s plight. As a guardian, Justine commands respect; as a woman, her magic is considered inferior. Together, they are determined to prove their worth to London’s magicians, starting with solving these murders—with maybe a bit of matchmaking on the side.
Long before he met his soul mate, Michael Black made a commitment to join the Order of St. Jerome. He will live forever, forced to watch the woman he loves age and die. As Emily hunts the murderer, Michael struggles to protect her. But if he loses control of his hunger, the greatest threat to her safety could be Michael himself.
Warning: Contains tortured soul mates, scheming faeries, vampire debauchery, deadly parasols, illicit blood-drinker relations, and adorable plot moppets.

PRFL would like to extend a very warm welcome to Robyn Bachar, author of Poison in the Blood. Robyn, can you tell us a rundown on your heroine, Emily Black?
Character Profile: Emily Black
DOB: December 5, 1830
Hair: Brunette, long and wavy
Magician Type: Seer (A seer is a magician who can read magical auras and receive prophetic visions. Seers are the rarest kind of magician, with only a handful in the world. Their visions center around the person they’re reading or a traumatic event in an area. Seers are particularly adept at locating a person’s soul mate.)
Profession: Wife, mother, matchmaker, published poetess
Merit(s): Loyal, honest, and honorable
Flaw(s): Nosy, meddling, and stubborn
Family: Michael Black (husband); 5 children: Lillian, Jasper, Theodore, Margaret, and Robert; 3 younger sisters: Sarah, Mary, and Josephine. Emily comes from a long line of librarians, and her children are librarians as well. Her husband Michael was previously a librarian, but has become an immortal chronicler.
Allies: Justine Dubois (guardian); Dr. Andrew Bennett (witch); Simon St. Jerome (chronicler—though he is Michael’s mentor, Emily and Simon are often at odds)
Core Beliefs: Emily believes that she has more to give with her magic than simple matchmaking. She wants to help, and believes it is the right thing to do.
Character Quote: “I will just have to do something about that.”
