Struck By Love (available for agent review)- 68K Contemporary Fantasy
My So-Called Life meets Off the Page.
The only thing Megan Cooper wants is to graduate high school early and leave her small town, and emotionally distant father, behind. But when she accidentally hits Cupid with her car, she is obliged to strap on a bow and quiver of arrows to become his assistant.
The problem is, not only is she unable to shoot a straight arrow, but she doesn’t believe in love. Not the familial kind, and certainly not the romantic kind. How could she? Since her mother’s death, her father’s been stuck in a fog of grief that’s left little time for Megan. The closest she’s gotten to romance is sharing workspace in home economics with a hunk who’s an air-headed flake, not to mention highly irritating. And now, instead of girding up her cynicism and moving forward, she’s second-in-command to an annoying little man with wings.
Now, as she races to meet Cupid’s deadline, she must face old wounds, find forgiveness & track down the perfect match for the one boy she can’t stand.
