The Cupid Caper
Port Provident: Holiday Hearts - Book 3
Amanda Marsh is in love with love. As a high school English teacher, she is surrounded by poetry and classic literature, including the love stories written by her favorite author, William Shakespeare. She knows she’ll never find anything as romantic as the stories that have stood the test of time, so she’s settled on having a crush on chemistry teacher Luke Baker from afar.
Luke Baker left behind his career as a research chemist in order to share a love of science with students. And he’s about to make his pet project a reality as the curriculum lead for the district’s new specialized science and technology academy. When a poen shows up on his desk drawing him into The Cupid Caper, the Valentine’s Day-themed dance and fundraiser for Port Provident High School’s Student Council, Luke dismisses the whole thing as a silly game. But after he realizes that winning the grand prize is the one way he can help a star student attend the new STEM Academy, he decides to play along.
Paired together, the hopeless romantic English teacher and the logical chemistry teacher both realize that The Cupid Caper is more than a game, but neither can tell the other their feelings are no joke. Luke is moving on to a role that can make or break his career. Relationships aren't in his (lesson) plans, and Amanda refuses to make her feelings known with Luke on his way out the door to his new school.
When an education in happily-ever-after is on the line, will a man whose life has been ruled by the scientific method and a woman who quotes sonnets miss the mark, or will Cupid’s arrow finally ring true?
