Book Description:
New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde invites you back to Cupid, Texas, where love is only a heartbeat away . . .

Sexy cowboy-scholar Jericho Chance always knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. And after sauntering back home to Cupid, he’s shocked to discover that he wants Zoe McCleary. After years from home, he takes one new look at his bubbly best friend, with her lightning smarts and luscious body, and it hits him like a bolt: she’s his somebody to love and he’s not leaving town again without her.

Settling down always seemed like a time waster to Zoe, a man magnet with a trail of broken hearts behind her. She’s not meant to settle down—but how can she resist someone as persuasive as Jericho? There’s no way they can ignore the explosive chemistry seething between them . . . even if it means risking their friendship...

Lynn’s Review:
One thing different with this latest Cupid book is that each chapter starts off with a definition.  This makes you wonder about the amount of time that was required in order to find just the right ones.  This isn’t a historical romance but our author gives her readers more of the history of one of the founding families.

Zoe McCleary has a situation going on when Jericho Hezekiah Chance shows up.  Even though these two are supposed to be the very best of friends, Lori does a great job of showing the tension that exists between the two.  She also takes a serious moment and has you laughing – it takes a quick mind to do something like that.

I never thought that archaeology was a very interesting subject but Lori has changed my mind.  You’re finding pieces of history and you never know if it can be linked back to you.  And it’s not a job that you would think would make for a nail biter – surprise!  Lori never shortchanges her readers in any way when it comes to romance.  And there’s no sex before it’s time.  It’s all about building the anticipation so that when it finally happens, it’s perfect.

If you’ve been following this series, this book is a great addition.  It’s like you’ve become a resident and are learning more about your family.  Cupid sounds like a great place to visit and maybe even put down some roots.  Here’s a town that has it’s own myth to it that seems to draw its residents closer.  The great thing about how Lori has written this series is that each book can be read as a stand-alone so you could read the books in any order.  But if you want to stay true to the series I would read them in the order in which they were written.
