I, Effing Feline, told you last week that my cousin Lee ate every last bit of my cat food and then stared at me while licking his chops. It was easy to realize he was wondering how I’d taste.
What did I do? I introduced Lee to Twiggles the dog. Let her be Lee’s midafternoon snack.
How did it turn out? Sigh. I’ll tell you about it after this word from my sponsor, Pandora Uncaged.
Certain she’d heard wrong, Pandy replayed his words in her mind. “Pardon me? For a moment, I thought you said pregnant.”
She waited for him to explain. When he didn’t, she prodded him. “What did you actually say?”
He shrugged. “Pregnant.”
“Only after you marry her,” Booker added.
Pandy shot to her feet and glared at Aidan. “Are you insane?”
“His idea,” Aidan repeated. “Not mine.”
And a few more but not too many. I know you have a lot of snippets to get to.
“Oh yeah, sure.” But his gaze was direct, his voice sincere, and Pandy believed him. He’d been her best, most trusted friend. In all the years since, she’d never had a better one. And in a way, this weird discussion was a continuation of their teenage friendship. Had Aidan wanted to go all the way with her back then?
Had he ever pressured or tried to force her?
Effing Feline here again. Twiggles and Lee. Lee and Twiggles . . . You know how dogs are so stupidly eager to please? So what did Twiggles do? She got into that playful Downward Dog pose, hoping Lee would play. And then she led him to her stock of dry food . . . a fifty pound bag.
They’re now Best Friends Forever!
Book Two in the Passion Island Trilogy — A friends-to-lovers future romance
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?
