Unlovable: The Case Files of Dr. Matilda Schmidt, Paranormal Psychologist #1

by Cynthia St. Aubin

It isn’t every day a sexy demigod throws a pissed-off Cupid onto psychologist Matilda Schmidt’s couch and informs her the fate of the world depends on her ability to get him off his diapered ass and back to helping people fall in love.
