“Matching Wits With Venus”

Greetings Six Sentence Sunday Friends! Below please find an excerpt from “Matching Wits With Venus”, my paranormal romance about a Hollywood matchmaker and the Roman god Cupid. As you can see, Venus is a bit more mortal than we ever imagined ….


Venus turned away from the window and looked at her son.  Cupid was sitting on the edge of a pink silk sofa, a thick clutch of papers between his muscular hands.

“If you’d just take a look at these spreadsheets, I think you’ll see I’ve discovered a way to streamline everything. I’ll be able to shoot twice the arrows in half the time if I don’t have to keep backtracking.”

Venus held up her manicured hand.

“When I want your advice I’ll ask for it.”
