Chapter 1 Lions and Love at the Cat Café (read the very beginning here.)
Excerpt part 2:

She’d delayed as long as she could, or at least long enough. Time to go face Nash.

Cheyenne took a few steps before Nash glanced in her direction. She offered a hesitant smile.

He froze and stared. The cat pounced on the feathered bundle and pinned it to the ground. The stick curved into a U-shape between Nash’s hand and the taut string.

The stick snapped out of Nash’s hand and whipped past his face. He jerked back and sat down hard.

Cheyenne gasped and jumped. Her coffee splashed over the edge of her mug, onto her hand. She flinched at the heat. One of the cookies flew off the plate and hit the floor six feet away.

Nash and Cheyenne stared at each other. The room receded, leaving only the two of them, held together in a moment outside of time.

Then he grinned up at her, his eyes full of mirth. She felt her stiff smile turn into something more natural, yet almost as unfamiliar as the cappuccino.

A moment later, they were both laughing.

Excerpt: Chapter 1 Lions and Love at the Cat Café

Cheyenne stopped in front of the Furrever Friends Cat Café and gazed through the windows. A man crouched on the floor, holding a long stick with a string on the end. He waved the stick, and a cat leapt for the bundle of feathers on the other end of the string. The cat had to be adorable – after all, cats were – but she couldn’t look away from the man. His crouched position didn’t hide his long legs and broad shoulders. The curve of his cheek, the angle of his jaw, the dark hair falling over his forehead – they were more familiar than her own face.

But it couldn’t be Nash. Not here. He hated cats, always had, wouldn’t go near them. That had destroyed their relationship all those years ago.

Cheyenne stared, blinked, and stared some more. The sight didn’t change. The clean café windows and bright lights inside left no doubt. He might have filled out a little, gained a touch of grey in his dark hair, but it couldn’t be anyone else.

Her ex-boyfriend was in a cat café. Playing with a cat. It didn’t make sense.

Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café: a Sweet #Romance #MFRWhooks

He’s loved her forever. She still sees him as the neighbor kid. Can five desperate kittens bring them together?

Excerpt of Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café: A Furrever Friends Sweet Romance (read the opening of Chapter 1 here):
Bang, bang, bang!
Adam jumped about a foot, and Marley’s song cut off.
Heart thudding, he pushed out of the chair and ran to the office door. He swung around the doorframe and started down the hallway.
The kitchen door swung open. Marley rushed out.
Adam jerked back so he didn’t slam into her.
She shrieked and jumped, bouncing off the doorframe.
“Sorry, sorry!” Adam held up his hands. “It’s just me.” Darn it, he should have told her he was there. Of course she’d be scared when someone pounded on the door, and he appeared out of nowhere. “Are you hurt?” He lifted a hand to check her arm for bruises but couldn’t close the last few inches to touch her.
Marley let out a weak laugh and pressed her palm to her chest. “All right, I’m okay, only startled. Why didn’t you let me know you came in? I would’ve given you coffee, and a cherry scone when they’re ready. I’m trying a new recipe.”
He stuck his hands in his pockets and hunched his shoulders. “That’s okay, I don’t need anything.”
“Mom would say you could use some fattening up.” She gave him a playful pinch on his lower rib cage.
Adam snorted out a laugh.
He couldn’t think of anything to say. The moment grew awkward.
Marley shook herself. “Right, the door. I almost forgot what startled me the first time. We don’t open for another ten minutes. I don’t understand why whoever it is couldn’t wait. Nobody needs coffee that badly.”
Marley strode to the front door. She pushed it open, glanced around, and looked down. “Oh.”
“What is it?” He couldn’t see past her, but something in her voice made him want to drag her back, get out front, and protect her.
She opened the door wider, moving with it so he could see.
He looked down at a cardboard box filled with wriggling fur. “Kittens?”


Marley is a baker at the new Furrever Friends Cat Café, which is still trying to find its footing. Her nine-year-old son, Brian, desperately wants a kitten, but they can’t have pets where they live. Who has the time to date? Just as well that she’s protected her heart since the father of her child disappeared.

Adam has loved Marley since he was 13, and she was his best friend’s free-spirited older sister. Back then, he fantasized about rescuing her from bandits or dragons. Now he’s 24, and the five-year age gap isn’t so serious. He wants nothing more than to become a family with Marley and her son. But will she ever see him as a man?

When someone leaves a box of week-old kittens at the café, Adam jumps at the chance to be a hero. But herding kittens might be tougher than fighting dragons, especially when two of them fail to thrive. Can Adam, Marley, and Brian save the kittens and find a future together?

Excerpt: Chapter 1

Adam let himself into the Furrever Friends Cat Café at 6:30 in the morning. He had half an hour until the café opened, an hour until he had to head to his job. It made sense to come to the café early, when his best friend, Kari, wouldn’t need her office. When he wouldn’t have the evening distractions of café employees, and customers playing with cats.
That’s why he arrived so early. It had nothing to do with Marley, singing a folk song in the kitchen as she started the day’s baking.
If you couldn’t lie to yourself, who could you lie to?
He paused in the hallway that led between the cat room on the right and the kitchen on the left. The interior windows on the right offered a view into the cat room. Cats sprawled on the padded benches and chairs or peeked out of hammocks and cat tower boxes. He smiled at the sight.
He turned to the left and paused at the counter where they served food and drinks. In the kitchen behind the serving area, Marley kneaded dough. She didn’t look up. She must not have heard him come in.
Should he announce his presence? At this point, he’d likely startle her by saying something. He forced his feet to move down the hall to the office. He wasn’t there to gawk. He had to figure out their Internet problem.
He indulged himself by leaving the office door open so he could still hear Marley sing. That wasn’t creepy, right? She sang even when she knew people were listening, sometimes. He recognized her current song, “Big Rock Candy Mountain,” as one she sang to her son.
She had an amazing voice. She’d taken lessons, back when they were all kids. Well, when he and Kari were kids, and Marley was a teenager, the beautiful, free-spirited, kind older girl who treated him like a little brother. Despite their five-year age difference, he’d never seen her as a sister. At first, he’d been in awe of her. Later … that was another matter.

Cherry Scone #Christmas #Recipe from the Cat Café sweet romance #MFRWhooks

The recipe below is something my mother made on Christmas morning for many years. We have it for breakfast along with Mexican hot chocolate. My cat café series features a bakery and two fantastic bakers. This cherry scones recipe is mentioned in the second novel, Kisses and Kittens at the Cat Café (available soon!).

Cherry Scone Recipe

This recipe also works well with dried cranberries or currents.

½ cup dried cherries, cranberries, or currents
apple juice or grape juice (about ½ cup)
2 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ cup cold butter
1 egg
½ cup plain yogurt (full-fat preferred)
1 tsp. lemon or orange zest

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Soak cherries in juice for at least 10 minutes while you mix other ingredients.
  • Mix the flour and ¼ cup of the sugar. Blend in the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
  • Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture has fine crumbs.
  • Stir in the egg, yogurt, and zest. Drain the cherries or other dried fruit well. Mix them in.
  • Spray a baking sheet lightly with oil.
  • Turn the dough onto the baking sheet. Pat it down into a 9-inch circle.
  • Cut the dough into 8 wedges. Separate them slightly. You may sprinkle with additional sugar if you want them to sparkle a bit.
  • Bake until golden and firm, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve warm with butter … or clotted cream, orange marmalade, or jam.


Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café: A Furrever Friends Sweet #Romance

A single mother with a nine-year-old son. A younger man who has loved her forever. A box of orphaned kittens. Can they become a family?

Adam has loved Marley a decade, since he was 13, and she was his best friend’s free-spirited older sister. Now he’s 24, and the five-year age gap isn’t so serious. But will she ever see him as more than the kid from down the street?

Marley has protected her heart since the father of her child disappeared. Most men aren’t worth the trouble, and who has the time to date anyway? She’s a baker at the new Furrever Friends Cat Café, which is still trying to find its footing. Her nine-year-old son, Brian, loves animals but can’t have any pets as long as they live with Marley’s allergic mother. And now someone’s posted a flyer for a singing contest. She gave up that dream long ago, didn’t she?

Adam has always wanted to fight dragons for Marley. When someone drops a box of week-old kittens at the café, Adam jumps at the chance to be a hero. But caring for five needy kittens might be tougher than fighting any dragon, especially when two of them fail to thrive. Can Adam, Marley, and Brian, save the kittens and become a family?


Excerpt: 

Marley touched the kitten that had orange and white swirls. “Curled up like this, he looks like a cinnamon bun.”

“Mom, that one’s a girl.”

“Fine, she looks like a cinnamon bun.”

“That’s a good name,” Adam said. “Cinnamon Bun.”

They looked at him. Did they think it was stupid?

“Come on,” he said, “Cinnamon Bun is a cute name for a cat, especially one that turned up at a bakery.” He nudged Brian. “But it’s up to you.”

Brian gently scooped up the kitten in both hands and held it six inches from his face. “Cinnamon Bun.” His brows drew together as he studied the sleepy little face. “She likes it.”

“Excellent,” Marley said. “I’ll be able to remember this one and recognize her from her pattern. One down, four to go. Should we keep the bakery theme? We could call them, let’s see … Brownie, Lemon Bar, Scone, Muffin?”

Brian scrunched up his nose. “Not Muffin.”

Marley propped one hand on her hip. “Oh, you’re okay with Lemon Bar and Scone, but you draw the line at Muffin?”

Brian giggled. “I didn’t say the other names were okay.” He put Cinnamon Bun back in the box and studied the other kittens. “Maybe Brownie for this one.” He picked up the black kitten and gave it the same close scrutiny. “Yes, Brownie.”

Adam touched a kitten that was mostly black but with a white patch on the back, kind of like a saddle. He might have suggested an equestrian name, but the baked goods theme seemed to be working. “This one looks like a chocolate cupcake with white frosting. How about Cupcake?”

Over the next few minutes, they settled on Cupcake, along with Sugar Cookie (Sugar for short) for the white kitten with specks of tan, and Peanut Butter Cookie (Cookie for short) for the one with a light brown pattern.

“Okay.” Marley blew out a breath and pushed the curls off her forehead. “We have Cinnamon Bun, Brownie, Cupcake, Cookie, and Sugar.” She touched each of the kittens in turn. “I might forget and you’ll have to remind me, okay? I might accidentally call them Rocky Road and Banana Nut and Croissant. And of course, Muffin.”

Brian snickered. “It’s only five kittens, Mom.”
