TEXT ME, CUPID
A (slightly dirty) Love Story
(for 21st century adults)
in Four Episodes
BY M. JANE COLETTE
Text Me Cupid, Episode Two
Meet Will and Florence. He’s freshly divorced and in denial. She’s twice-burnt and prickly. They’re a terrible idea. They know this. But every time their eyes meet, their clothes come off. Experience their unique, hilarious, and heart-wrenching love story in the four episodes of TEXT ME, CUPID: a (slightly dirty) love story for 21st century adults.
In Episode 2: DELAYED VALENTINE, Will gets his hard-won Valentine’s Date with Florence. And she’s almost excited about it. She even buys him flowers. Really. And then…
She loved the way he said her name.
“I can’t believe you followed me into the washroom.”
“Shh. I figured out what was wrong,” he said. His face was still hidden in her hair. She couldn’t see him. He couldn’t see her. She closed her eyes and felt the tears come.
He kissed her neck.
“We didn’t,” he said, and lifted her hair up a little, kissed her neck lower, “really say,” he yanked at her dress’s neckline and kissed her shoulder, then her back, “say hello properly.”
She swivelled around to face him, to find his lips, then remembered her tears and tried to turn back around.
He swivelled her back. Kissed a cheek, then the other, then her nose.
“I wish you hadn’t put on make-up,” he said. “I want to devour your eyes.”
“I can wash my face,” she said.
“Do it,” he said. And bent her over the sink.

Jane: Delayed Valentine is the second novella in the TEXT ME, CUPID series: a steamy love story in four episodes, featuring a hero and heroine with a painful past, a complicated present, and… well… what’s going to happen in their future?
It is not a pure stand-alone, and I highly recommend you read Messy Christmas first.
If you insist on going straight into Delayed Valentine, I do provide you with a bit of “this is what happened to bring Will and Florence to this place.” But it’s tricky. Pretty much everything in the plot is a spoiler. I go from spoiler to spoiler to spoiler. To spoiler. Frankly, even the chapter titles are spoilers. Really. But it’s so good. You’ll love it.
