Effing Feline fleas #wewriwa

I, Effing Feline, am out of catnip. That never happens. What else is an Internet celebrity cat going to spend his earnings on but catnips? My sister Effie really likes the stuff. I mean, she really likes it.

Sigh.

In today’s snippet from The Triple Wedding, we learn the aftermath of Sterling’s humiliating, catastrophic attempt to hire Teegan a date off the street for her sisters’ wedding.

“Sterling,” Teegan called from the hallway as he packed up his things, “you messed up with Nakamora big time, but that doesn’t mean you have to run away. Especially not so late at night.”

“It’s my own fault,” he said.

“That’s true but…it’s dark out.” She leaned against the wall. This was the place where she’d first met him, wearing only a towel. The swish of clothing being jammed into a duffel bag seemed to accuse her. If this were business and he an employee, his leaving wouldn’t bother her. Employees left all the time. But he was her friend’s favorite brother.

And a little bit more . . .

As though to rub her face in the familial relationship, Mercedes leaned against the doorjamb of the teal room. Appropriately enough, she stood halfway between Sterling in the room and Teegan in the hall.

“I’m not running away,” he said. “I’m doing the honorable thing. I brought embarrassment and shame on a generous woman, and the only way to restore the balance between us is to leave.”

Effing Feline here again. Effie just told to break out some more catnip, because her tom-friend, Bruiser, is coming for a visit this evening.

Bruiser + no catnip = Gulp

Gotta run. 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!

    I wonder if Teegan can find a way to stop Sterling from leaving.

    And no catnip sounds like a problem with guests coming over. Who will save Effing?

    1. Spoiler alert: No, SHE won’t find a way.

  2. Oh dear, much to straighten out in the book, I sadly fear. Enjoyed the snippet.

    1. The more the merrier, eh?

  3. Maybe once he goes, he’ll realize that’s not the best way to handle the situation?

    1. Maybe. Maybe not.

    Oh, dear. It sounds as if he really will leave.

    1. Well, he’s got his clothes packed . . .

  5. I hope he isn’t really going to leave.

    1. Well, he’s just about packed. All he has to do is walk out the door.

  6. Dilemmas everywhere! Sterling and Teegan, and then poor Effing out of catnip! You’ve got fires to put out, Mr. Pet Human. 😉

    Happy release day tomorrow! Whew, I just pre-ordered in time! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the pre-order — and my apologies for taking so long to make the rounds.

  7. Sounds like his honor is getting in the way of practicality. Effing, maybe you should have your human grow catnip in the garden – that way you can just send guests out to roll in a limitless supply.

    1. Not only would there be a limitless supply, but it’d be free. I like the way you t hink.
