CUPID AND THE COWBOY
Army veteran Judd Foster just wants to be left alone, but Erika Dunn won't hear of it. Determined to bring her childhood hero out of his guilt-induced isolation, Erika tempts Judd with mouthwatering meals from her restaurant. In spite of his resistance, Judd discovers that he still longs for community connectionsand for love. Sparks really start to fly when the two pretend to be a couple. The appealing heroine of Carol Finch's Cupid and the Cowboy (3) is both spunky and vulnerable, though her role as neighborhood matchmaker could have been given a bit more attention.
