"Third Cupid novel contains the fresh humor and romance"

The indignity of the penalties for violating the "hands off humans" policy imposed on Venus and Cupid by her father (his grandfather) leaves both stunned and miserable. Jupiter demoted Venus from the Goddess of Love and Romance to the Goddess of Fruit Trees and Gardens. Alas, poor Venus has learned that she suffers from allergies. Cupid is now a goat, which better fits his new role as the God of Flocks and Shepherds. He suffers from constant scratching caused by the endless fleas enjoying a meal on him. Aunt Vesta, the Goddess of Virtue and Hearth, has been named to perform double duty as the Goddess of Love too.

Vesta's plan is to turn the world into a pure place where women remain virgins and men do the honorable thing, not the sex thing. She chooses Olivia "The Ice Queen" Montgomery and Andrew "Drew" Sullivan for her first matchmaking exercise. However, Venus plans to prove that only she is capable of being the Goddess of Love by matching Andrew with Francesca "Franki" Ling. Thus ends the prologue.

The third Cupid novel contains the fresh humor and romance that make the first two tales so much fun to read. The plot never slows down due to the amusing antics of Venus, the fumbling efforts at sexless love by Vesta, and the asides by Cupid triangulating modern mortals into a warm contemporary romance. J.M. Jeffries has written a tremendous novel that adds luster to a great series. Fans of paranormal romances will gain much pleasure from reading all three books in this whimsical and delightful series.

SUMMARY

Andrew Sullivan has spent his life raising his siblings and making money. Now he's sold his business and wants to take a driving vacation across the United States. But he's never learned to drive and hires Francesca Ling to chauffeur him. Unaware that she's directionally impaired, Andrew finds himself lusting after the sexy free-spirited Frankie. But Andrew isn't about to fall for a maddening woman who can't read a map, parallel park or get anywhere on time. Or can he?

Frankie Ling knows she's driving Andrew crazy. But the stodgy financial wizard needs to learn how to have fun and she's determined to teach him. She sets out to show him the time of his life, but when her heart gets involved, she puts on the brakes. Andrew's made his mark on the world, but Frankie is just getting started in her career and doesn't need a man to complicate her life.

Can Cupid and Venus convince this mismatched pair that they belong together? No ones plays the love game as well as they do, and they are determined to do the impossible...
