    Enjoyable contemporary romance

    Gwen, owner of the on-line magazine Gwendolyn¿s Garden, informs Kate Bradshaw that if she fails to change her attitude about males she will cancel the DEAR CUPID column. Kate admits that her once popular advice column has lost many readers ever since she turned acrimonious. Kate concludes that ex-husband¿s lack of interest in their little boy is the cause. Kate realizes she needs a man to freshen her romantic outlook, but not for any real relationship. <P>While waiting for a flight at LA airport, Kate decides to flirt with the first man that looks nothing like her former husband. She chooses special effects artist Michael Cameron, who returns home following a class reunion in which everyone seemed married. Michael wonders about himself until he meets kissable Kate. He quickly wants her at his side permanently even when a seven year old boy expresses doubts about a male entering his and his mother¿s lives. <P>DEAR CUPID is a humorous contemporary romance that provides a deep base to support the amusing antics of the dynamic trio. Though quite jocular, rising star Julie Ortolon (see DRIVE ME WILD) focuses on the impact of deadbeat fathers on their children without drowning every male thanks to the caring lead hunk. Michael knows he will need all the magic of a special effects guru to sell little Dylan that he wants him too and to persuade Kate that the second time is the charm for her just like the second time is still the charm for Ms. Ortolon <P>Harriet Klausner

    What a wonderful story!

    Kate Bradshaw was a single parent to a seven year old boy, Dylan, who had severe asthma. Her ex-husband had put work before his family and still did. Dylan was constantly disappointed and let down by the father. After all he had done, Kate no longer trusted men. However, she ran a column in an e-zine called Dear Cupid. The owner of the site was making noises about canceling it. <BR><BR> Michael Cameron was known in his field as Magic Man. He created special effects for movies and was one of the best! After his twenty year high school reunion he realized life was passing him by. He wanted a wife to come home to, kids, and to make memories. Then he met Kate at the airport. She disappeared too quickly for his taste, but she did not know she had dropped a business card of her next door neighbor's company, Wife For Hire. Michael had to meet her again! Now he had a way! <BR><BR> Kate agreed to help her best friend, Linda, by taking an assignment from Wife For Hire. She never dreamed her client would be the handsome man she had flirted with at the airport! She certainly never dreamed he wanted to hire her to help him find a wife! But Michael had a hidden motive. He wanted Kate for his wife! Being a client would keep her close and give him a chance to persuade Kate into saying Yes! <BR><BR> ***** What a wonderful story! It is filled with clever wit and funny scenes. Dylan just stole my heart! Readers will find this story to be a delight! Recommended! *****

    sophomore smash

    Dear Cupid, What happens when a divorced mom trying to make it on her own falls for a laid back movie animator ready to settle down? Romantically Challenged Dear Challenged, Let me tell you, those determined single moms are tough nuts to crack, as Mike Cameron found in Julie Ortolon¿s DEAR CUPID. From the moment he laid eyes on fiery redhead Kate Bradshaw in the LA airport, he schemes how to get close to her. The business card she drops at his feet is the lead he needs. The card advertises her friend¿s service business, Wife for Hire, which performs duties such as carpooling for busy families. Mike decides he¿ll take a Wife for Hire, but only if it¿s Kate, and he¿ll try to convince her to become a wife for real. Kate is struggling with her on-line Dear Cupid column. It seems her cynicism has carried itself from her divorce from a workaholic husband and into her writing. And who wants to read a Dear Cupid column that bashes the make gender, after all? She loves her job, which fulfills her as well as gives her an opportunity to work from home and care for her asthmatic son. In an effort to prove her romantic streak wasn¿t annihilated in her divorce, Kate tries flirting with a handsome stranger in the LA airport. Harmless, until she finds he¿s hired her through her friend¿s business to make him marriage material. That¿s the last time she does a favor for anybody. It doesn¿t take her long to figure out that she¿s the wife Mike has in mind and she puts on the brakes, especially after she sees how consumed he can become in his work. She¿s been there, done that, thank you very much. Any man who wins her heart has to show he will be there for herself and her son. Mike is up to the challenge, and his persistence if fun to watch - who wouldn¿t want a man so devoted? His tender interaction with Kate¿s ill son is endearing, the secondary romance is charming and the love scenes sizzle
