Review by Wisteria
Daphne Charissa isn’t a chubby little guy with wings and a quiver of arrows. But she does belong to the Cupid race—a race of devastatingly beautiful creatures who excel at helping others find love, while remaining loveless themselves throughout their long lives.
When Daphne falls in love with Bion Chronos, she launches the two of them into a direct confrontation with the Furies as they fight to protect their own love and win release from the curse of lovelessness for the whole Cupid race. The problem is, the Furies have no intention of letting them win, and the lovers can’t seem to keep their hands off each other long enough to form a coherent plan.
It’s gonna be an interesting battle.
Daphne Charissa works for Cupid’s Arrow. Her job is to match clients who have common ground for a love match. The down side is that as a cupid herself, she has no love in her life. At least until Bion Chronos comes along. Daphne can’t help but be drawn to him. It doesn’t help matters when he insists on spending time with her. She must complete his match but doesn’t want to give up the feeling he stirs in her.
What a great story! A refreshing new twist in the paranormal world that this reviewer hopes will not be the last. The wonderful characters pull you in from the get-go and keep you in till the very end, leaving you breathless and ready for more. More. MORE!!!!
Fast paced with no lagging scenes, clean editing and great writing make this story a keeper for anyone who loves romance, paranormal and love. I look forward to reading more from Sam Cheever in the future, hopefully sooner rather than later but anytime will do.
