Annabelle Pearson was in love. For three years, she'd worshipped the sexy but aloof Nicholas Nattrass from afar, wistfully dreaming of a time when he'd love her back, or at the very least notice she existed. All that was about to change, however, when she starts seeing things that she shouldn't, things that couldn't possibly exist, like the Grim Reaper and the Tooth Fairy, for example. The last straw comes when she spots Cupid, about to shoot his arrow at her beloved, and in a desperate bid to save her dream, she wallops him one with her handbag. Dealing Cupid an almost fatal blow means someone has to take his place, and that someone is her! Will she complete her mission and save Cupid's life? And will she manage to win the love of Nicholas Nattrass, or would the esteemed "Doctor Love" have her committed to an insane asylum?

Warning: This novel contains excessive humor, action, excitement, adventure, magic, romance, and bodies. Proceed with caution. Fetching a cat out of a tree should’ve been a quick, easy fifty bucks in Kanika’s pocket. Instead, following one stray thought, the devil pays her a visit and leaves her with a debt to repay. Owing the devil a favor is bad enough, but her life is turned upside down when it’s time to pay the piper. First, she doesn’t want the world’s sexiest firefighting, kitten-rescuing Scot as an unwilling companion. Since that wasn’t bad enough, she doesn’t know who wants him dead or why, but there’s no way in hell she’s going to let someone mar his perfection. Add in the fact the devil wants an heir, and there’s only one thing she knows for certain: she’s in for one hell of a job.
