Effing Feline climbs a tree #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, told you last week that I had met my long lost sister, Effie. We spent the last week talking, playing, eating, and doing catnip. It has been great . . . except for one little thing. I’ll tell you what that thing is after this word from my sponsor, The Triple Wedding, which is now available for pre-order!

Teegan has learned that Sterling, her roomate’s brother expects her to pick out a date for her sisters’ wedding from a bunch of strangers.

Taking a deep breath, she (Teegan) turned to the stranger with as much dignity as possible.

“Teegan Dayle,” Sterling said, “may I introduce Hermie Nakamora.”

“No,” she said, “you may not introduce him. I’m sorry, Mr. Nakamora, but try to forgive my friend’s brother. He’s, you know…” She patted her temple and let her face go slack with stupidity. “I’m sorry he wasted your time, sir.”

Nakamora craned his neck, examining her as though she were a suit of clothes hanging on a rack. “You’re kind of cute. I prefer my women with a bit more flesh on them, but I could use the money—”

Teegan’s hand flew to cover her mouth. “You offered him money?”

And a little bit more . . .

Teegan fought to keep her composure. Her fists tightened when Nakamora looked her up and down, with a pit stop at her chest. When Teegan pulled back her fist, Sterling edged away. Not that she would really have punched him, of course. Teegan Dayle, upstanding business owner, assault someone on a public thoroughfare? Perish the thought.

But she was glad when he moved out of reach . . . just in case.

Effing Feline here again. What’s the problem with my sister Effie?

I hate to air my dirty litter in public, but . . . she never shuts up. Talk, talk, talk! To steal a few minutes to write this post I had hide and I don’t know how long I —

“There you are, bro!”

Uh oh.

“Effing, come down from that tree so I can finish telling you about my boyfriend, Bruiser.”

Bruiser? Gulp.

Gotta go. See you next week.

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 will Teegan and Sterling need to take their pretense? All the way?

Triple Wedding will escape to planet Earth on July 19. Until then, it’s available for preorder at a special low price that will go up once it’s released. So order your copy today!



  1. “Doing catnip”…. is that legal?

    Excellent excerpt!

    1. That depends on how you word it. It can sound innocent or . . . not.

  2. LOL, just in case, clearly, she was tempted. I liked the snippet.

    1. This guy definitely gets under her skin!

    Sterling had better fix this situation, and fast.

    1. Outside forces will intervene for both of them, forcing them to work out a reluctant truce.

    Love this snippet and the premise. Can’t wait to see how you finagle the two of them together in spite of themselves.

    1. In the next chapter, they’ll discover they need each other — though not as mates, naturally.

  5. I was kind of hoping she’d clobber him. LOL Glad she had more restraint. The chemistry between these two is sizzling! Or does he just make her sizzle? LOL Great snippet!

    1. Clearly, she thought about clobbering.

  6. Oh dear, it just gets worse and worse for her…and I have to keep reading! Great snippet!

    1. It was fun making their conflict worse and worse.

  7. I feel so bad for her. Stepping back was probably a good thing. Remove the temptation out of reach. Though she might have felt better if she followed through. 🙂 Great snippet.

    1. The woman ultimately does a good job of leashing her anger — though it’s close..

  8. lolol! Offering money… Great snippet, Ed!

    Effing, surely you have better hiding places. Is Bruiser coming to town?

    1. I have no plans for Bruiser to visit, but that name is too good to waster, don’t you think?
