The  Cupid  Curse


The Cupid Curse




It's February 14 and Cupid's been fired from the job.   But he's not the only one with problems this Valentine's Day!

Producer April Hart's TV sitcom is seeking to secure syndication and she only needs tonight's special season finale to get them over the line.   But it's risky show business broadcasting live and she's losing actors camera left, right and well, centre stage.   The role of Cupid is going begging--right up until the real thing crash-lands on her lawn.

With the help of Doctor Ethan, her neighbour next door, can she convince the depressed deity that he is the god for the job?   Can the lord of love impress his bosses enough to get his old position back?   Or will it be curtains and a wrap for everyone instead?
