"We are excited to add a new boys love imprint to Broccoli Books," says Broccoli Books publisher Kaname Tezuka.

In order to become a full cupid, he must successfully unite a couple. However, the target is an evil man named Norimasa who shows no love for anyone. When Tsubasa accidentally ends up as Norimasa's match, the trouble begins. Are Tsubasa and Norimasa attracted because of cupid magic, or is it true love?
