I, Effing Feline, told you last week I got a letter from my cousin Lee. Unfortunately, he isn’t here yet.
No, he’s not back behind bars. Sheesh, how suspicious you people are!
He has a job that’ll delay him a little while. I’ll tell you about it after this message from my sponsor, Pandora Uncaged. In this snippet, we meet the hero of the piece.
A shaft of light from the open bedroom door woke up Aidan Forester. He blinked and buried his face in the pillow. His mind and body complained in stereo that it couldn’t possibly be morning yet.
Visitor, Aidan,” a grouchy soprano complained.
“What time is it?”
“Time to get dressed,” Maylee Sigridsdottir answered. “Your visitor insists he has to talk to you urgently. Like right now.”
And a few more:
“Big guy, seven feet tall, funny accent, but the kind of voice you don’t disobey. Scanning his ident brought up an official-looking badge and new orders for you. So get up, up, up!” She pulled the blanket off him.
Effing Feline here again. Here’s Lee at work. Isn’t he great?
Book Two in the Passion Island Trilogy — A friends-to-lovers future romance
Available April 5 at all major e-book vendors
Pandora Dayle is her family’s disgraced black sheep. Ten years after running away, she’s rebuilt her self-respect at an isolated facility for saving animals native to the colony’s planet. Her redemption feels as fragile as a dream, but she’ll be okay if nothing traumatic happens.
But when the best friend from her innocent youth arrives, her insecurities mushroom.
Aidan used to be Pandora’s best friend. Since his teen years, he’s held heroic jobs—police officer and now Search and Rescue leader. He adored innocent young Pandora so much he compares every woman to her idealized memory, and finds them wanting.
But when he rediscovers the real thing, she’s not at all what he expected.
Booker, a naïve Apprentice Cupid for a secret organization, receives his second assignment: get Pandora and Aidan to mate. They’d been close friends, so his strategy is simple: He flies Aidan to her island and tells him to impregnate Pandora.
What could possibly go wrong?
