Love With A Perfect Cowboy
Avon, May 27 2014, $7.99
Twelve years ago, Melody Spencer left Cupid, Texas on a full scholarship to NYU and has stayed in Queens until recently ever since. She also left behind the love of her life Luke Spencer and the feud between their families. She anticipates a promotion to creative director at the ad agency where she works, but instead Melody’s Tribalgate boss fires her due to her inability to ignore her ethics; as he insists the customer is always right regardless. After a respite at St. Pat’s, Melody returns to her lover Jean Claude Laurent’s apartment only the doorman Parker refuses her access and tells her to remove her things or face the cops.
In Manhattan, Luke as the mayor of their small-town needs Melody’s skills to save drought-ridden Cupid. She agrees to go home to mount a campaign to save Cupid, but makes it clear no sex. Back in Texas, as their families still feud, Melody and Luke make love not war.
The latest Cupid romance (see All Out Of Love, Love at First Sight and Somebody To Love) is an amusing lighthearted second chance at love contemporary. Although the jocular storyline goes as expected; the lead couple and their lunatic family make for a fun time “Deep in the Heart of Texas.”
