Dear Cupid by Julie Ortolon was originally published by St. Martins press in 2001. It has now been released in eBook form. As many reviews have stated the story is predictable. But this is a heart warming story with well developed characters.
Kate is an advice columnist with a column entitled Dear Cupid. But after her experiences dealing with her ex-husband, has she lost her ability to see and believe in love ?
Mike takes one look at Kate in the airport and just knows she's the one. After talking and flirting with her he's even more sure. So how can he convince her?
Giving advice, now that's the easy part but following her own advice is a lot harder. Will Mike be able to help Kate believe in herself and love again ? ( )

Cute story that I enjoyed a lot. Full review to come. ( )

Read on Kindle. Spoilers -- could there be spoilers? One of those books, formulaic, dull, repetitive. I thought it might be better but it wasn't. They meet, there isn't any tension or much plot besides courting.

Kate has turned bitter and taken to a bit of male-bashing... not an ideal situation for an online romance columnist. While waiting for a flight back home, she decides to practice her rusty flirting skills on an unsuspecting man in a loud Hawaiian shirt. He happens to be Michael Cameron, a highly respected and talented movie animator. For him, it's love at first sight. While Kate feels an attraction, she wants nothing more to do with him. Mike devises a plan to spend more time with Kate, even though the pretense is so thin both can see right through it. While Kate's life slowly falls apart, Mike tries to convince Kate to believe in herself again.

This is a fairly straightforward, predictable read. At first, Kate comes off as shallow and selfish, with her love of nice clothes and a nice home, and an attraction to powerful men. It is almost as if she doesn't know herself, because Mike might have it all, but that isn't why she falls for him. She also cares more about her son than anything else, willing to give up on her own dream to make sure that Dylan is protected and cared for. While Kate worries that Mike will disappoint Dylan like his father has, and Mike isn't sure he really wants anything to do with another man's child, Dylan is ultimately the reason they can come together to form a big, happy family.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312978715, Mass Market Paperback)

Once upon a time, there was a redhead named Kate Bradshaw who naively thought Happily Ever After was just a heartbeat away. One kid, one divorce, and a stack of bills later, Kate isn't necessarily a candidate for Man-Haters Anonymous, but she's not winning any points with the love-struck readers of her Dear Cupid advice column either. If she's going to keep her job, she needs a man to remind her that romance can be fun. Someone attractive. Someone easygoing. Someone with whom she can polish her rusty flirting skills-- and absolutely nothing more. Enter Michael Cameron...

One might think a drop-dead handsome movie animator would have no problem marrying himself off. As Kate soon discovers, one would be sorely mistaken. A little too attached to his shabby bachelor pad couch and rumpled Hawaiian shirts, Michael is counting on Kate to turn him into husband material and find him a wife. But little does Kate know that this is just Michael's plan to convince her to give love a second chance and to look for the future Mrs. Cameron in the most obvious place of all: the mirror...

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:23:30 -0400)

Suffering from emotional trauma after her divorce, Kate Bradshaw is about to lose her on-line romantic advice column. To revitalize it, Kate needs to rekindle romance in her life, and Michael Cameron wants to be the man to help her.
