Venus Guy Trap
Haydee Miller is on the brink of panic. When she was sixteen, she swore that she'd be married by her thirty-third birthday. It's part of Haydee's Grand Plan, which saved her sanity when her mother died and her father was too overcome by grief to remember he had a teenage daughter. The Plan has guided Haydee for half her life and never failed her. Until now. With her birthday looming and no Prince Charming in sight, Haydee is surprised to discover that her bookstore's newest employee is the gorgeous Goddess of Love, Venus herself. Venus is certain that Haydee's One True Love is the darkly handsome Derek, a world-renowned photographer who has returned to his hometown to settle down. The only problem? Derek and Haydee fell in love ten years ago - before he abandoned her without a word of farewell, leaving her with a broken heart and a secret she has never revealed. Somehow Venus must heal this damaged woman and reunite her with her True Love. It won't be easy. Every man in town, married or not, is pursuing Venus, even when she makes herself over into the ugliest woman on earth. Are her goddess powers malfunctioning? Can she make a Love Match without them?

About Shannon McKelden
A firm believer in Happily Ever After, SHANNON MCKELDEN lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her high school sweetheart-turned-husband, two children, a dog, and four cats. Her first novel was "Venus Envy."
"Charming. Puts a fresh spin on the classic fairy godmother story, and Venus - catty and generous with her barbed wit - is cut from different cloth than the standard well-behaved fairy. McKelden's sharp sense of humour pulls plenty of weight." - Publishers Weekly on VENUS ENVY."
