Happy Reading

“‘Matching Wits With Venus'”  is smart, witty, and imaginative.” – Jenny Gardiner, author of “Sleeping With Ward Cleaver”. The following is the blurb for “Matching Wits With Venus”, my sweet paranormal romance, released by Astraea Press ( on April 19.  Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

For centuries Cupid has longed to be more than Venus’s arrow boy. When he’s sent to eliminate “Happily Ever After by Amelia”, the matchmaking business threatening Venus’s status as the goddess of love, Cupid decides to steal Amelia’s methods and make his own matches.  While spying on Amelia, Cupid accidentally shoots himself with his magical arrow and falls in love with her.  But bereaved Amelia doesn’t believe in the existence of Roman gods, and she’s certainly not looking for romance since she’s too busy perfecting the patented personality profile that’s made her Hollywood’s favorite matchmaker. Cupid’s interference with Amelia’s life causes her business to falter, leads to a sterile spring that threatens the animal kingdom and shatters the longstanding peace between the Roman and Greek gods.  With the fate of the natural and under worlds at stake, Cupid must decide whether to reveal his true identity and risk losing the chance to live happily ever after with Amelia.
