I, Effing Feline, have a few questions for all of you. They may seem like silly questions, but I’m serious, so please be serious in return, okay?
What happened to your tail? Did it hurt? Humans do have tails, don’t they?
I’m continuing with hooks from one of my pet human’s favorite books, Rescuing Prince Charming. It’s an SFR set in the near future. Dusty and the alien guard get rid the time bomb from mankind’s first ever starship. What will they do next?
“It’s over,” he said.
Funny, it seemed more like a beginning. Even funnier: she’d never been so close to death, yet never felt so alive, so connected to another human being.
He hugged her tighter. “Over!”
His elation fueled hers. She burst into laughter and hopped up and down in his embrace.
“We did it,” he whooped.
“No, no, you did it. That was the bravest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
“Hah to that! Without you, that bomb blows apart my face. You were amazing.”
“Without you, that bomb blows up in my arms, because I could never have thrown it as far as you did.”
“Without you,” he said, “I’d still have my pants on.”
“Uh, yeah. I bet you’re cold.” She planted her palms on his buttocks. “Yep, you’re cold.”
He reciprocated by grabbing her bottom. “And you, my brave lady, are hot.”
Rescuing Prince Charming
Dusty Johnson, a self-styled ordinary, everyday woman, responds with extraordinary heroism when saboteurs try to bomb the prototype of Earth’s first starship. Although she yearns to return to anonymity, that moment of courage propels her ever deeper into dangers that tear the scabs off her dark secrets — and thrust her into the arms of the unattainable man of her dreams.
Reese Eaglesbrood, an alien prince, yearns to restore his tattered reputation by guiding the starship project to completion, but his fascination with the unassuming heroine threatens to undermine his fragile authority. Shunning Dusty is necessary, yet unthinkable — and when the saboteurs strike again, she is his only ally against Earth’s most elusive enemies.
