"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 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.
