Painting For Keeps by Landra Graf – Coming 2019

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

Agatha, Aggie, Kakos lost her boyfriend, her apartment, and now, is one brownie bite away from purging her binge when an invitation to Cupid’s Café shows up on her doorstep. Fighting bulimia and her mother’s constant verbal abuse has never been easy, but this nutritionist is determined to be stronger than her weakest link. She’ll meet a secret admirer at Cupid’s for a morale booster, if nothing else.

Following a break-in and the destruction of his paintings, starving artist Murphy O’Shea finds himself at wit’s end. Not only does he need to create twelve more paintings, but in the midst of another manic depressive episode, the challenge seems impossible. He’s got two months or he’ll have to cancel his first show. The Cupid’s Café invite offers him a chance to find his muse. He doesn’t expect it to be the woman he’s mirrored the past two years paintings on, nor does he plan on being able to offer Aggie the help she needs.

Can they find a way to conquer their inner demons or will they succumb to the idea they aren’t worth a happily ever after?

Exactly Like You by Lori Sizemore – Coming 2019

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

Former social worker Roxie Fisher believes she’s cursed to never find happiness and an invitation to Cupid’s Café isn’t going to change her situation. All the same, against her better judgment, she gives it a try. What else does she have to lose?

After the death of his wife, accountant-turned-firefighter Aidan Craig, can’t stop taking ridiculous risks and never turns down a dare. So an invitation to Cupid’s Café is an offer he can’t refuse. What he doesn’t expect is to meet the social worker who helped him through the darkest days of his life. Now she’s the one struggling, and he’s compelled to help.

The two experience an immediate attraction, but Aidan swore to never become involved in another relationship, and Roxie can’t imagine daredevil Aidan being interested in a boring, cat-rescuer like her.

Can Roxie find the simple joy of taking a risk? Is Aidan willing to risk his heart? Or will they both lose out on a chance at true love?

Captured Memories by Katherine McIntyre – Coming 2019

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time.

Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place.

When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.

True Colors by Landra Graf – Coming 2020

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

Five years ago, Rose Roberts won a Pulitzer prize—and nearly lost her life at the hands of a stalker. After severe anxiety derailed everything, she has one last shot to save her floundering journalism career thanks to an invitation to Cupid’s Café and the mention of an old acquaintance who blames her prized article for making victims of violent crimes look like criminals, even though she almost was a victim herself.

Following the murders of his wife and daughter, ex-cop Jeffrey Dixon finds himself in need of a windfall to save his family’s home from foreclosure and to prevent further decline of his mother-in-law’s health. A Cupid’s Café invite mentions the possibility of a job to solve his problems. He doesn’t expect to run into the woman who made his loved ones’ killer an overnight celebrity. Or to be offered a job.

Rose finds inspiration from Jeff’s appearance, and she’s willing to pay whatever his asking price, if he’ll agree to act as her bodyguard and be the subject of her next article. Without other options, and the bank giving him less than two months to fix things, Jeff accepts her job offer and moves in. The last thing he wants to do is become emotionally entangled with a woman who wrecked his grieving process, but as weeks drag on, the threat from Rose’s stalker becomes very real and Jeff finds his protective instincts triggered. He won’t lose someone else, especially someone he’s started to care for.

Exploring their mutual attraction seems natural, but as their barriers drop the exposure will leave them questioning everything they hold on to.
Sometimes, the only way to see someone’s truth is to expose the things they fear most.
