The World’s Worst Cupid - a New Romance Series
Author Question: Please, tell us about book one in the Let’s Get Mythical series. Why is Eliza Herman the World’s Worst Cupid?
According to myth, Cupid (a.k.a. Eros) used his magical arrows to make people fall in love. Or, more accurately, lust. Daphne and Apollo, the whole Aphrodite-Ares-Adonis love triangle, Zeus and…well, half the planet? All because of Cupid and his arrows.
But what if the arrows weren’t magical? What if they were just Cupid’s weapon of choice? If all he had to do was draw a little blood, he could have made people fall head-over-heals with a sword or a club or even a piece of paper. (Side note: I don’t know if there was paper in ancient Greece. But for the purposes of this story, we’re going to say there was. Sorry, history buffs.)
Fast forward a few thousand years, and Cupid’s great-great-great-great-great (you get the idea) granddaughter has inherited his abilities. But tenfold. she doesn’t need to draw blood at all. A small bump or bruise from Eliza Herman is enough to make anyone fall in love.
It’s really too bad she’s such a klutz.
On her eighth birthday, Eliza performed her first accidental enchantment. It involved a pinata, a baseball bat, and her childhood crush. Tears and vomit abounded.
Then there was the time she dropped a pencil case on her fifth-grade teacher’s foot. The teacher ran off with the principal, and the entire class blamed Eliza for the crappy substitute who filled in for the rest of the year.
And we can’t even talk about the Great Middle School Dodge Ball Incident. Discussion of it has been banned in 49 states.
But now that Eliza’s an adult, she’s gotten her enchantment powers under control. More or less. By taking jobs that let her work from home, ordering groceries online, and essentially becoming a hermit, Eliza’s managed to avoid all but the occasional love spell.
Until a family crisis forces her to fill in at her family’s Cupid-for-hire shop. Now Eliza’s enchanting people on purpose and doing it under the watchful gaze of her assigned mentor. The only problem? She’s got a massive crush on him, and—after she accidentally knocks a candy dish onto his foot—the feeling is mutual.
Whether this will be the best thing to ever happen to her or an epic disaster is to be determined.*
*Actually, it’s been determined. You can read all about it in Crazy Cupid Love, out now. Wherever books or sold.
