56: The Collector, by Nora Roberts

I wanted something fast and fluffy after the turmoils of Doomsday, so I went for this. I didn't like it very much in the beginning. It felt a little too stilted for me, too formulaic. But once the two protagonists got to meet each other, it got much better. I especially liked that it neither went the 'You're hot, I'm hot, let's boink for insta-relationship and the magic sex will sort everything out!' nor 'oh woes artificial obstacles keep keeping us apart oh the angst' route of relationship development, but instead had them navigate their relationship and gasp! talk about things and settle issues and find compromises. What a novelty notion! Plus there was a neat little mystery in the background.
