In Cupid, Texas, they say everyone has one true love. And if you write a letter to Cupid, you will get an answer in return . . .

Now, from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde, read how the legend of Cupid began . . . All it took was one great love story!

Too bad for pretty young housemaid Millie Greenwood that her one true love is John Fant, the handsomest, wealthiest man in town. But in 1924, a maid—no matter how lovely—isn’t about to marry into the town’s foremost family, and John is on the verge of becoming betrothed to another. Everything seems hopeless until Millie writes a desperate letter to Cupid, and the most romantic legend of all is born.


Review: Lori Wilde as created another wonderful series, this time it is set in Cupid, Texas. This novella sets up the storyline for the series. However, I had the pleasure of reading Love at First Sight by Lori Wilde before I read One True Love. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything in either book by reading them out of order. I really enjoyed getting the background story of how the legend began.

Millie Greenwood is a strong young girl that has suffered loss. Her fathered was killed in a silver mine owned by John Fant. The family offers Millie a housemaid position so she will be able to help her family. Of course Millie accepts the job so that she is able to assist her family after her father’s passing. I just loved Millie, she has a sweet personality and a funny side as well.

John is a wealthy businessman but also a has a big heart. He loves his family which you can tell by how he treats his sister. I won’t go into a lot of detail but I loved what he and Millie do for his sister. I’ll let you read One True Love for yourself and see what happens that I enjoyed so much.

Millie and John have an instant connection that is really sweet to watch grow. I really enjoyed reading their story and found myself hoping that things work out for them.

I love Lori Wilde’s style of writing and her ability to instantly drawing me into the story. I can tell already this is going to be a series that I am going to want to follow and I can’t wait for the next release.
