Schtupid Cupid

It will be done today so technically I'm jumping the gun but it's either mention it now or tomorrow because I'll be working on it for the rest of the day, formatting and all.

This is the first novella I've done.  It was something I started years ago and there was an editor or was it agent who found it tres amusant, but no one wanted it.  I put it aside and aside and aside.  As I've said, I'm giving up adult lit for the time being but there were good moments I didn't want to see lost.  So I decided to just find an ending for it basically where it was.  It did mean that the guy I thought she would be with turned out to not be the guy.  Since it's about Viva and Bel's cousin, it's a "good" loss-leader for Not Low Maintenance and Unspeakably Desirable.
We'll see how long it takes Amazon to match the Smashwords price.

I hope in the new year Amazon makes it easier to upload documents with images.

Lis Miller isn’t looking for a man, a boyfriend, a husband or a companion but her cousin, Viva, the nationally known Mating Maven, can’t resist butting into her private life.  The result?  Duress Dating.  In order to keep peace in the family, Lis is treated to, or is that tormented by, a series of attempted matches each one more hair-raising than the last.  With the Jake, the pilot, Lis’s hair is literally raised as he turns the plane upside down on the way to Block Island and a gourmet meal of fried Mars Bars.

When Viva arranges for Lis to go to California to do the flower arrangements for a friend’s wedding, the flight makes national headlines.  All she wants is some peace and quiet.  And has it until she realizes it’s all a set-up to pair her with the owner of the ranch.

Cupid proves to be more unpredictable than expected because on her way to living a happy life as a singleton, Lis Miller falls in love.  Running true to everything that’s happened in the past weeks, the match is crazy, insane and heart-thumpingly mad.  Just how stupid is Cupid?
