Blurb for Cupid’s Angels

Ellie Childs isn’t looking for love. She’s looking for an AC repairman for the Forest Wood Senior Center. But when the repairman happens to be tall, dark and handsome, David White, he has the goods to make her change her mind. Unfortunately, he’s taken by a blonde Barbie.

David moved to the small town of Cupid, Arkansas to be closer to the woman he loves, his grandma, and as far away as possible from his ex fiancé. Not thinking his broken heart would ever work again, he’s proved wrong by falling for Ellie, a good-looking redhead. She’s the farthest thing from his ex as he can get, but as luck would have it, she’s taken, and the guy she’s seeing’s a real jerk.

When David’s grandmother, Mary Costanza, see’s the instant attraction festering between David and Ellie, she calls on the help of her three friends. Together they form Cupid’s Angels. Their mission, to bring David and Ellie together. Despite their best efforts, the Angels’ plans backfire and push David and Ellie farther apart and into the arms of others. Or so they think.

Will the Angels’ good intentions win out, or will their plots and schemes be the end of David and Ellie before they could even begin?

Excerpt:

She opened her office door ready to face the damages. Expecting another sweat covered Neanderthal in Bib Overalls, her mouth fell slack at the sight of a handsome man at the end of the hall. She gasped and gripped the folder tighter, blinking to make sure she was seeing clearly. The only attractive men that ever walked into the Center had been over the age of fifty. To see one so young, so striking, made her light-headed.

A tight white undershirt gripped sculpted bicep muscles and broad shoulders. His jeans hung low on his hips and sported holes in the knees. His suntanned skin accented his bronze hair, and an easy smile spread across his face. He carried a toolbox in his left hand and held a bouquet of roses in his right.

Everything about him caused her knees to go weak.

Bio20151021 Erin Bevan

Erin Bevan was born and raised in Southwest Arkansas. She spent her teenage years working for her aunt at the local gas station flipping burgers and making milkshakes dreaming of the day when something better would come her way.

Fast forward ten years later, she found herself stuck inside an apartment in South Korea while her daughter went to preschool and her husband went to work. Alone and unable to speak the local language she turned to books for a friend. After reading a few hundred in such a short time, she decided to try her hand at writing one.

That first one sucked, but by the fifth and sixth book, Erin started to get the hang of this writing thing. Getting the first contract in the mail was a dream come true. Now, with three babies at home, she squeezes in stories one word at a time, one sentence at a time, one day at a time. She’s a full time mom, a full time wife, with a little writer sprinkled in whenever she can get the chance.

Excerpt:

She opened her office door ready to face the damages. Expecting another sweat covered Neanderthal in Bib Overalls, her mouth fell slack at the sight of a handsome man at the end of the hall. She gasped and gripped the folder tighter, blinking to make sure she was seeing clearly. The only attractive men that ever walked into the Center had been over the age of fifty. To see one so young, so striking, made her light-headed.

A tight white undershirt gripped sculpted bicep muscles and broad shoulders. His jeans hung low on his hips and sported holes in the knees. His suntanned skin accented his bronze hair, and an easy smile spread across his face. He carried a toolbox in his left hand and held a bouquet of roses in his right.

Everything about him caused her knees to go weak.

“Hey, Grandma.” He kissed Mary’s cheek and placed the roses into her small hands. “These are for you.”

“Oh, David. You shouldn’t have. They’re lovely. Come over here. I want you to meet someone.”

Before Ellie could get her wits about her, the two walked toward her. She straightened her blouse again and wished she would have taken the time to do something more with her hair, or maybe apply a little lip-gloss. Her ginger curls were a frizzy mess, and her blouse still had the coffee stain right on her breast.

“Ellie, I’d like you to meet my grandson, David. David, this is Ellie. She’s the Center’s Executive Director and a dear friend.”

“Nice to meet you.” He extended his hand.

“You, too.” She slipped her clammy hand in his. Rough calluses scratched her palm and his touch sent a shiver through her.

“Gran tells me you’re having trouble with your air. You mind showing me where the unit is?”

She saw his lips move, but didn’t understand a word he said.

“What?” She asked dumbly.

“The AC unit. Is it outside?”

“Oh, yeah. The unit.” Ellie wondered if her voice sounded as shaky as her knees were. He flashed her another smile that made her want to grab his hand and go find a utility closet somewhere. His strong build, handsome face, sparkling green eyes, and the fact that he brought his grandma roses had her heart beating like a nineteenth century drummer boy heading into battle. She fanned her face with the folder. Her sweaty palms had caused the thick Manila paper to go limp.

Welcomes

Erin Bevan

Author of

Cupid’s Angels

 

Erin has agreed to share where her inspiration for and a little bit about the publishing journey of her new book Cupid’s Angels, soon to be released by Soul Mate Publishing. Take it away Erin:

 

As I’m gearing up for my release date, I sit here and think back to where the idea for Cupid’s Angels came from. The idea, like several of my stories, came from a calling The Wild Rose Press was doing for their Flower Basket Series.

The Flower Basket Series was set in a fictional town in California, with fictional shops and tons of fictional characters. I could incorporate the shops and characters as well as make up my own, but of course, I couldn’t use any of the previous story lines.

I was coming late into the series, and so previous authors before me had made this town a thriving place with several rich and vibrant characters. And while, most of the love stories were based on younger people, I thought, why not add some old ones to the mix? I just love funny old people, don’t you?

Well, at the time, I was still pretty new to this whole writing thing, and my story was good, but it just wasn’t good enough. I still had a few tricks of the trade to learn, you could say.

I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason. I was devastated my story, or in my mind my child, didn’t get chosen for publication, but now I can look back and say I’m thankful.

I’m thankful for many reasons. One, I have no idea what it’s like to live in California. The only dealings I have ever had with California was in an airport, and I have a feeling that’s not ‘really’ California. I don’t know how the people talk or what the surroundings look like, but what I do know is the south. I’m a southern girl through and through and while I might not be able to take you on a tour of Hollywood, I can show you how to make some real good collard greens!

Fast forward a couple of years and many edits later, Cupid’s Angels has found a spot of it’s very own with Soul Mate Publishing.

And while Cupid’s Angels might not have a recipe for collard greens in it, it does have sweet Southern charm, a feisty old red head that was inspired by my very own Great Aunt Hazel, and a sexy handyman. Those are all the ingredients you need for a great book!

 

Thank you Erin for sharing that interesting tease about your book. Watch this space for the release of Cupid’s Angels.

Now how about a little hint at what the story is about.
