Effing Feline’s amazing date #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that I had a hot date with a flexible pussycat. Well, the date was life-changing, even though we didn’t even rub noses. Or yowl at the moon together. I’ll tell  you why after this word from my sponsor, The Triple Wedding.

When he finished explaining, Teegan stared at him incredulously.

“Are you out of your brain? Mercedes, your brother has gone insane.” She lowered her voice. They were in public and she didn’t want to draw embarrassing attention. “Do you even have a brain, Sterling? I can’t believe you want me to pick a guy out of a crowd and ask him to be my wedding date. Just how desperate do you think I am?”

He exchanged a look with Mercedes then raised his eyebrows and shoulders at the same time.

Wow. He apparently thought she was really desperate.

And a few more:

But she was a successful businesswoman who could go to the double wedding without a man tagging along beside her like a pet fubsy, all legs and tail, galumphing on a diamond-studded leash. “No. Just no.” She stomped away, leaving the angel-beet casserole on her plate.

Mercedes followed. “Tee, slow down.”

With each step on the pavement-grass, a faint aroma of vanilla and hay graced the air, and when the scent grew a lot stronger, she knew Sterling had joined his sister in the chase. He ran past and stopped in front of her, making her stop, too.

“These are factory buildings,” he said. “The work crews will be getting off any minute and there’ll be twenty or thirty guys for you to choose from.”

Effing Feline here again. Why was my date so amazing while Teegan’s had such a rough start?

No, it’s not what you think. Sheesh, get your mind out of the gutter. It’s because I recognized her scent immediately and she recognized me an instant later. It turns out she’s my long-long sister, Effie Feline!

We hadn’t seen each other since the Pet Shop. We spent the night talking and reminiscing and laughing. She’s great. A worthy sibling for the great Effing Feline!

Triple Wedding

Teegan Dayle is a businesswoman who’s determined to maintain her image as the family’s most successful sibling. To do this, she needs a gorgeous date for her sisters’ wedding — even if he’s just a fake boyfriend..

Sterling, her roommate’s brother, is a handsome biologist. When a desperate Teegan asks him to be her date, he refuses — until he realizes the wedding is his only chance to meet the creatures who fulfill his professional dreams.

Booker is a naïve young Cupid whose job is to make a match for Teegan — but not with Sterling. Can he break up matches as well as he makes them?

How far are Teegan and Sterling willing to take their pretense? All the way?


Triple Wedding is available for pre-order in the three-book set, The Passion Island Trilogy, which goes live July 12. Order your copy today.

  1. Hahaha! Twenty or thirty guys to choose from! What about that prospect could possibly upset her??

    Effing, I’m so glad you caught up with Effie. Not sure who set up this date, (was it your pet human–Ed???) but they might want to do a more thorough background check. lol

    I was ready to offer advice for your second date…tuna tidbits for dinner, and you could read her some Tad Williams… Oh well. Guess you won’t be needing any advice this time!

    Happy Canada Day (late) and happy 4th!

  2. I want to see a picture of Effie!!!

    Hope the new series is doing really well, Ed.

  3. He really wants her to choose a guy. I wonder why.

    So, there are a lot of guys to choose from, and also one right in front of her.

    Nice that Effing was able to find his sister!

  5. 20 or 30 guys to choose from. I’m thinking that’s not where she wants to look.
    Tweeted.

  6. Interesting setup. I don’t blame her for being upset but I also can’t wait to see how it all turns out. Great snippet!

  7. She’s right she doesn’t need a guy. He’s funny, though–just pick one out of 20 or 30. 🙂

  8. Does Sterling really imagine any woman would be happy to pick a date from 20 strangers? And a factory worker, when she’s a successful businesswoman! Reading your blurb, I guess she will turn the tables on him.

  9. Just pick one. Like any will do. lol She doesn’t need a guy but one that is a good match wouldn’t be bad.

  10. Not the best suggestion on his part. If I were her, it would make me balk at taking anyone! Tension’s getting ramped up here. Great snippet!

    Oh, sure. Just pick one. Why not, LOL?

  12. It’s just an evening, right? I’m sure she could pay someone to go with her, and then she’d never have to talk to him again….How is Cupid going to mess this up for her?
