Teaser Tuesday (10)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week:


Cupid sighed as Amelia cried out once more. He didn't want to add to her sense of abandonment, or risk making her feel a sense of betrayal that she had been with a man whom she really did not know everything.

Matching Wits with Venus by Therese Giraldi, page 139.

Summary from Goodreads:



Matching Wits With VenusFor centuries, Cupid has longed to be more than Venus's arrow boy. When he is sent to eliminate Happily Ever After by Amelia, the matchmaking business threatening Venus's status as the goddess of love, Cupid decides to steal Amelia's methods and make his own matches. While spying on Amelia, Cupid accidentally shoots himself with his magical arrow and falls in love with her. But bereaved Amelia does not believe in the existence of Roman gods, and she certainly is not looking for romance. She is too busy perfecting the patented personality profile that has made her Hollywood's favorite matchmaker.Disguising himself as a mortal financial advisor, Cupid manages to break through Amelia's guarded exterior. As their passion deepens so does Cupid's guilt about deceiving Amelia. Cupid's interference with Amelia's life causes her business to falter, leads to a sterile spring that threatens the animal kingdom and shatters the longstanding peace between the Roman and Greek gods. With the fate of the natural and under worlds at stake, Cupid must decide whether to reveal his true identity and risk losing the chance to live happily ever after with Amelia.
