While studying the ugly gash in her cheek courtesy of the God Squad, Frank is surprised to see a familiar blue glow radiating around her reflection in the mirror. The glow of true love. Glancing over at Archer, she discovers that the god of love is carrying the same blue light.

Buried in a deep pocket, Annalee finds a key that opens a safety deposit box at the local bank. One with both of her parents’ names on it.
Annalee begins to suspect that things in life are not coincidental. Perhaps the universe is more powerful than she once believed, and things eventually unfold as they are meant to. Helena and Desi always taught her to trust in herself.
Can she do that now?
Can she trust in those she loves?
Can she turn what she’s learned about her past into something that will give her a bright and happy future?

When Archer returns after being away for several months, he finds Frank in the middle of a wedding cake disaster, catering mishaps and an aging but feisty barbershop quartet. When the god of love tells her that he’s come back because she’s in danger, it throws Frank’s world even more out of whack.
In Archer’s absence, Frank has worked hard to perfect her matchmaking skills. She’s gotten so good at hooking people up that the gods on Mt. Olympus have taken notice—but not all the deities are pleased with her ability.
Jealous that Frank has proven to be truly gifted in the art of love, Aphrodite decides to knock Frank down a peg or two. She begins to poke at old wounds and does her best to rile her fellow deities. It’s been ages since any of them have seen any action, and a war with the mortals might be just the kind of excitement they need.

While planning her attack, however, Aphrodite forgets two very important things; her son may very well be in love with this annoying mortal, and hell hath no fury like a bride scorned on her wedding day.
