Effing Feline wants a car #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, can hardly control myself. Cousin Lee is coming. For real this time, and in style! You should see The vehicle he travels in. Fancy, fancy. I’ll show you the picture he sent after this message from my sponsor, Pandora Uncaged.

Last week, the love interest, Aidan Forester, was awakened in the middle of the night by a seven-foot tall stranger. We pick up where we left off.

The tall guy was annoying, but Aidan was the Search-and-Rescue team leader on call, and if the giant had orders for him, well . . .

“What’s going on?”

“I’ll explain on the way.” He took Aidan’s arm and guided him out of his bedroom and into the parlor, where Maylee stood in a sacklike nightgown. As she handed Aidan the duffel bag of clothes and personal supplies all Search and Rescue officers kept on hand for emergencies, she cocked her head at him, an inquisitive look on her face. He spread his hands and shrugged.

“On the way where?” he asked when they were out in the brisk midnight air.

“To intercept the man whose place you’re taking. He’s useless to us.”

“Who’s us?”

And a few more but not too many. I know you have a lot of snippets to get to.

The giant just shook his head. “We need you on the islet and no one else.”

“Me? Why? What islet?”

Effing Feline here again. Here is Lee’s transportation. He’s quite the star, isn’t he!

I want a car of my own that’s at least as fancy as this. It’s  only appropriate for a cat of my stature, don’t you agree?

Pandora Uncaged

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?

Pandora Uncaged is available for pre-sale at these fine sites. Order yours today.



  1. Wow! Those are some wheels!

    1. Effing doesn’t care about the wheels, only the ornamentation!

  2. a bit of mystery, interesting.

    1. At this point in the story, poor Aidan has no idea what’s going on.

    That is definitely a fancy car!

    And great snippet! I don’t think he’s quite prepared for where he’s going.

    1. You’re right — he’s nowhere near prepared for this!

  4. Aidan has every right to be asking all those questions. Its all pretty mysterious.

    1. Aidan says later (tongue in cheek) that the only reason he didn’t strangle this guy was that their flitter was a thousand feet in the air.

  5. That’s rather inconvenient to be roused unceremoniously from sleep and told to move out on assignment NOW. Poor guy has to be confused.

    Effing, I looked for unique “cars” for you but could find nothing as ornate and splendid as Lee’s luxury accommodations. Get Ed to build you one! 🙂

    1. Build a car for Effing? Hmm. I could probably manage a cage with nice thick bars. Do you think that would suffice?

      1. Well, I was thinking more of a carrier (there are some strange ones out there) but a small scale one like Lee’s might be nice. 🙂

  6. I think this guy’s in trouble that will only get worse LOL. A seven foot tall stranger getting you out of bed in the middle of the night is only the beginning….excellent excerpt! I really enjoyed the tone…

    1. The seven-foot stranger has sort-of-nefarious aims and absolutely no subtlety about achieving his airms.

  7. If I were Aidan I’d be asking to see some Identification. But somehow, I don’t think that would stop the giant from getting him to go along. Fun snippet.

    1. The dude showed his identification to Maylee, and Aidan trusted her enough he didn’t ask to see it himself. He may be regretting that now.

    This is kind of mysterious. I’d want to know what was going on before I went anywhere.

    1. Too late, though, once you’ve trusted your coworker (Maylee, who checked the guy’s ID) and you’re a thousand feet up in the air.

  9. I don’t think I’d want to just jump out of bed and just go with the explanation he’d fill him in on the way. He may be ‘search and rescue’ but he’d still needs details about the situation. I’m intrigued to know more.

    1. Sometimes in S&R you don’t get much time for details.

  10. They are telling him nothing. Zippo. Bupkis. I think he should dig in his heels and… nah, the giant would just pick him up and sling him over his shoulder.

    Now, to Effing’s excitement over Lee’s upcoming visit. I think you should break it to Effing, in a gentle ‘here kitty kitty kitty’ voice, that anything that travels in that type of cage is a BIG kitty and will think Effing is lunch.

    1. Good idea, but . . . Effing’s delusions of grandeur are so well entrenched I’m not sure you can tell him anything.

  11. Hopefully the tall guy gives him some answers soon.

    1. What would be the fun in spilling the beans right away?

  12. Does the seven foot tall stranger have any right to drag him out of bed? Aiden doesn’t seem to recognize him.

    I wonder if his vehicle is as fancy as Lee’s.

    1. The thing is, Aidan is on call to handle search-and-rescue emergencies. That’s why he goes so meekly — it starts out, at least, like a legitimate task.
