Cupid’s in The House

Happy Sunday! The following six sentences are from “Matching Wits With Venus”, my recently released paranormal romance about a Hollywood matchmaker and the Roman god Cupid. As you can see, this is NOT your mother’s greeting card cut-out, cardboard Cupid.


“Oh, no, this one’s wearing the uniform,” Jennie groaned as she stared out the window, to the street in front of “Happily Ever After by Amelia.” “Although I have to admit, he is kind of cute.”

Amelia looked up from her computer, where she’d been busy creating an even more refined personality profile. A tall, perfectly proportioned man in jeans, a white-button down shirt, and a dark sports coat was striding along the pavement. Amelia noticed how the man’s sun-kissed hair fell to one side. She reached up and touched her own unruly curls.

For those who are celebrating, may you have a Happy Independence Day. For more six Sunday sentences, please visit:
