Cupid’s have targets other than hearts…
After cheating on her monthly figures, Samara finds herself sent back to Cupid training school by the big boss himself. If she’s to pass her probation, she’ll have to prove she is capable of creating genuine love matches.
But things don’t get off to a great start when she finds out that pets aren’t allowed in school. Difficult when your husband has been turned into a Whippet until you’ve proven yourself.
Someone should have known that the crazy, stupid, lazy, cupid would try to find a short cut. It’s a walk in the park to create new romances, and she can exercise Johnny at the same time.
But not everyone wants Samara to succeed. Someone is waiting to take the lead…

Samara
“Okay so it’s time to introduce the person to your left. They should have told you enough about themselves right now.” Martine, the uber-happy, bouncy pony-tailed teacher instructed us.
I was not uber-happy, or bouncy. I was super pissed off.
“Samara, could you introduce the person to your left?”
Yeah, pick on me first why don’t you?
Sighing and blowing air above my top lip, I pointed to the woman next to me. “This is Janet.”
She shook her head. “No, no. Jeanette.”
I rolled my eyes. “This is Jeanette. She’s been sent back to Cupid classes because she did something dumb.” I didn’t know what it was but if she hadn’t she wouldn’t be here.
“Well, let’s not use the word ‘dumb’ shall we. Jeanette just-”
“Fucked up?” I stated trying to be helpful.
“Let’s move along. Max, could you please introduce Samara?”
Max beamed like the goody-goody twat he was. From now on I was calling him Vax, due to his sucking skills and being full of crap.
“Samara is here because she set up Taylor Swift with Tom Hiddleston and we all know what a car crash that turned out to be.” He elbowed me. “I knew that wasn’t real. Did you give him the t-shirt? It looked like it could fit you?”
Martine’s face clouded over. Yeah she wasn’t so happy now was she?
“Samara did not set up Tom and Taylor. That is an outright lie.”
I folded my arms over my chest. “Well someone must have done it. Seriously ruined Tom for a lot of women she did.”
Martine stomped out of the carefully constructed circle of chairs she’d made us put together and grabbed a thick file from her table. Then she stomped back in.
“Here we go. Samara Leighton. Reasons for being back at Cupid Inc. Training Headquarters.
Samara’s behaviour towards her local colleagues resulted in one colleague being ridiculed and having to seek counselling. I quote. ‘What kind of person draws attention to an unfortunate mishap of another? Samara is crazy’.”
“Crazy is not waxing your vagina and then sitting with your legs apart in a spa.” I informed everyone.
“Samara engineered a speed dating event prior to the opening of the dating agency in Withernsea and we believe saw a man she liked there herself. She then ‘accidentally’ turned up on his date. This man is now her husband. Now, fortunately the date she ruined wasn’t fated anyway, but what she did that day was stupid.”
“We’re madly in love. The best match ever.” I looked at the other faces sat around. “Well we were. Now my husband is in kennels. KENNELS. They turned him into a dog.”
Martine carried on. “Samara’s monthly inputted figures included those pairings from Withernsea Dating Agency, run by Shelley Landry, with no actual input from Samara at all.
“It says pairings for the month. It doesn’t specifically say my pairings. That’s on Cupid Inc. They should be more specific.” I complained.
“It’s lazy, Samara.”
“So I’m Samara. I’m crazy, stupid, and lazy. That’s how you need to announce me to all the others, Vax.”
“Max.”
“What-ev-er. My introduction is complete.”

“They say nice guys always finish last. I say the only place that should apply is in the bedroom — it’s just good manners, after all.” – Brett MacKinnon, nice guy and frequent resident of the friend zone
 
LIV:  There are really only three things I need in life: sex, baseball, and winning. My hot boyfriend and season tickets take care of the first two, while I always do my best to cover the last. So developing an unexpected crush on a new friend is more than a little inconvenient. I don’t have anything but friendship to offer Brett, but with the way he looks at me, he has me wishing I did. 
 
BRETT: I’ve been put in the friend zone so often, they’ve got a sandwich named after me. You’d thing I’d be used to it by now. But when it comes to the delectable Liv, I’m determined to ditch the friend zone and show her I’m boyfriend material. Too bad the position’s already been filled by a ball-playing caveman who could flatten me with his pinky.
 
What will it take to show Liv that nice guys can be more than just friends, and that love is the one game truly worth winning?

Blurb:
Olivia has had enough of paradise. The Bay Babe is hers, bequeathed by her father. The young woman sneaks out of the Hawaiian harbor bound for Alaska. It’s a long trip single-handed for a lone woman, but an urge for home on Kachemak Bay drives her.

I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1976, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks.
My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband’s chief mechanic’s helper and roadie.
I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were farther out. My cat and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore.
As a reporter for the Copper Valley Views, Cherime MacFarlane received a letter of commendation from the Copper River Native Association for fair and balanced reporting.

He led her to the crew quarters and Ole sighed. “I get it. The bunks are one atop the other and there are only two. Why is this area so small?”
Don tapped her on the shoulder. “Over here and you’ll understand. The man who owned Sandy before me had her built to his specifications. He and his wife never had kids and she fished with him all the time.”
He opened the door behind them and Ole stepped inside the captain’s quarters. “Liked her comfort, did she? I’ve never seen a working vessel this size with two heads. And you can actually walk around the bed on both sides. Living in the lap of luxury, that’s what this is.”
He shrugged his shoulders and sat on the edge of the built-in bed. “The perks of ownership, what can I say?”
With a laugh, she flopped down on the side of the bed next to him and fell backward with both arms out. “This is comfortable. You’d better be careful; the crew might mutiny one of these days.”
He turned his head to look at her and the smile left Ole’s face. Something about the man’s expression, maybe the glint in his eyes, pinned her to the mattress. As if a switch got flipped, it all changed between them.
“Ole?” Don turned on his side and leaned back on one elbow. The fingers of his free hand pushed the hair away from her forehead. He traced her eyebrows then slid a fingertip down the bridge of her nose to her lips.
Her breath hitched when his thumb slid across her bottom lip. One of her hands cupped his cheek. Don bent his head and kissed her. Everything before Don fell away. The guys who fooled around and tried to cozy up to her for the Babe were far short of Don’s league.
She might have given in if he pushed it, but he didn’t. Ole wasn’t sure how much time passed before he sat up, stood, and held out a hand to her. “Upsy-daisy, sweetheart. You need to get your delish self and the Babe home.”
With a sigh, he tugged her into an embrace. His cheek rested on her hair. “That was out of line. I probably shouldn’t have. I’m too old and got too much baggage to be messing with a sweet thing like you.”
She slapped him lightly on the chest. “Don’t be a Dick, Don.”
He groaned and Ole laughed as she leaned back in his arms. “I don’t want to hear another word. There’s no reason to ruin a perfectly good kissing session with bullshit.”
