Cupid is in trouble. He has been put on probation for a year and must help certain people they tell him to help. Well, the first people are Amberlin O’Rourke and Cecilia Luna. Cupid must find the perfect mates for them and he gets help from his mother, Venus.

Amberlin is a plumber by trade but her heart is set on being a painter. She paints beautiful murals. She also lives with her aunt Cecilia who is after her to get married. Unfortunately the prospective groom is her next door neighbor, a total jerk who thinks she should stay home and raise babies. Ugh!! Men!!

In walks Jeremy Barrett, the grandson of Frederick Barrett, the owner of Barrett’s. He can’t believe what he just saw; an old woman shoplifting at Barrett’s and everyone was letting her. So off he goes to his grandfather’s office to find out what was going on.

Cecilia is a woman set on revenge. No matter that what happened was forty years ago and wasn’t the fault of the Barrett’s at all, but Fortuna’s fault, the goddess of fortune. Only Cecilia didn’t know that and the chaos it causes is hilarious.

Can Cupid and Venus make it work between the stuffy and uptight, Jeremy Barrett and Amberlin O’Rourke and what about Cecilia and Frederick? We can’t forget about Fortuna wanting to take Cupid’s place and causing havoc and mischief to keep them apart.

Amberlin doesn’t think that Jeremy is the one for her, that he could never like or love a plumber. But what she doesn’t know is that Jeremy is already falling for her and wants to spend as much time with her as possible.

Now Cecilia and Frederick are a different story, they have been in love with each other for over twenty years and it takes a little help from Amberlin, Jeremy, Cupid and Venus for them to finally see the light.

Cupid: The Amorous Arrow is a hilarious and funny read that will keep you wondering what Cupid and Venus have planned next to bring everyone together and just how Fortuna can rip it all apart. This is a fast read that will have you laughing out loud and hoping that it all works out in the ends. If you are looking for a story that will keep a smile on your face while reading then Cupid: The Amorous Arrow is for you. I can’t wait to see what other antics Cupid and Venus get into next.
