A little too serious psychologist, a demi god, a hit man a mobster and Cupid somehow appeared in Cynthia St. Aubin’s brain and she decided to write a story. More surprisingly, the story is laugh out loud funny and full of missteps, mishaps and misconceptions.
This short (less than 100 pgs) story focuses on Matilda: a pretty but overly serious psychologist. After a particularly steamy dream one night, she can’t quite shake the aftereffects. And then, the voice from her dream appears in her office with her new patient in a sack. The demigod that sought her out to treat Cupid is desperately in need of some work: if he doesn’t straighten out his love life HE will be replaced. And Matilda is the one tasked with fixing him.
But a case of mistaken identity has Matilda in the clutches of a hitman, accused of stealing from his mobster boss in Vegas. But she was at home, and not for one moment would she contemplate stealing, nor had she been to Vegas.
There’s tons of things going on – ranging from utterly ridiculous to completely unrealistic: and near every moment is full of laughter and laugh out loud moments. While the story did feel a bit rushed on the way to the conclusion, St. Aubin penned a fun and funny story with plenty of promise for more in her future for readers.

It isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love.
Just when Matilda convinces herself she’s not hallucinating, in walks a Vegas hit man with a big gun and a bigger threat: pay back the million dollars she owes a notorious casino mogul, or wind up as fish food in Lake Mead.
Rocketing across country with a gun to her head, Matilda has a dysfunctional love-god in her laptop bag, a million dollar debt she has no knowledge of, and must convince the seductive hit man he’s snatched the wrong woman before he convinces her he might be the right man—for a night.
Can Matilda stay alive long enough to keep love from becoming history?
