Library Journal - Library Journal
Concluding her "Cupid" trilogy in superb style, Harbaugh pairs her charming, mythical hero, Harry (Eros), with his longtime friend Psyche Hathaway, and finally allows them to fall in love. Unfortunately, Harry's being already married and duty-bound to find his long-lost wife--thus saving the gods from virtual extinction and the world from chaos--creates an obvious dilemma for them both. The solution, of course, is equally obvious to everyone but Harry and Psyche, and while their determined refusal to see the truth may be agonizing to readers, the exquisitely depicted awakening of their love and compelling sexual tension more than compensate for this small frustration. Although fans of the earlier books (Cupid's Mistake, LJ 11/15/96; Cupid's Darts, Signet, 1998) will enjoy meeting old friends and seeing the matchmaking Harry find love at last, this story stands on its own and will appeal to most Regency readers who like their love stories poignant, wonderfully romantic, and laced with more than a little myth and magic. Harbaugh lives in Federal Way, WA.

Ever since reading Cupid's Kiss I have searched for more books by Karen. The story between Harry and Psyche was well written and the added substory between Diana and Lord Eldon was just as good if not better. It was romantic without being trashy.

I loved Psyche and Harry in the second book. Their friendship and adventures were entertaining and hilarious. However, it seemd like a lot of the book was just descibing their kissing, etc (humph). If I want that I could read some trashy romance. I expected better. Their relationship seems to degenerate a little, and some of the sparkle goes out of it. I do not like the idea of reincarnation and found it offensive. Diana was interesting, but again something, I don't know what, seemed wrong. Harry has to find his wife and he wants it to be Pyshce. Fine, have it be all right to marry Pysche. It would have made a great story and wouldn't have been troubling. Why butcher the Pyshe and Harry relationship that is lovable.

In this fantastical tale, Cupid, known to all as the god of love. Doesn't recognize when love finds him. This book, like others in it's series show that Cupid isn't the perfect god of love but can make mistakes that lead it hilarious results. With the help of his friend Pysche, he normally manages to get himself out of them. I loved this book it was out of the ordinary from the normal Regency. You'll wish you knew the love-god yourself.
