Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café - A Sweet #Romance Pre-order and Excerpt #MFRWhooks

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

Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café: A Furrever Friends Sweet Romance, Book 2 is now available for preorder!

Marley is a baker at the new Furrever Friends Cat CafĂ©, 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?

If you enjoy tropes such as best friend’s sibling / sibling’s best friend, friends to lovers, first love, unrequited love, and older women with younger men, check out Kittens and Kisses at the Cat CafĂ©. You'll also find rescue cats with plenty of personality and their own ideas about what love is.

Excerpt: Chapter 1

Adam let himself into the Furrever Friends Cat CafĂ© at 6:30 in the morning. He had half an hour until the cafĂ© opened, an hour until he had to head to his job. It made sense to come to the cafĂ© early, when his best friend, Kari, wouldn’t need her office. When he wouldn’t have the evening distractions of cafĂ© 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 cafĂ© series features a bakery and two fantastic bakers. This cherry scones recipe is mentioned in the second novel, Kisses and Kittens at the Cat CafĂ© (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 CafĂ©, 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.”

A #Recipe from the Cat Café: Bacon Nut Brittle #MFRWhooks

My cat cafĂ© series features a bakery and two fantastic bakers. So of course I must share recipes! The one below is perfect for people who like a little savory with their sweets. It's a nice gift for bacon-lovers who don't need a lot of stuff for the holidays. This will disappear in no time!

Bacon Nut Brittle Recipe

Crunchy, salty, smoky, savory, and sweet. This combination of flavors makes for an unusual treat! You can use whatever nuts you prefer. If someone has nut allergies, use sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds instead (or a vegan "bacon" alternative). If you don't eat pork, skip the bacon and try a mixture of different nuts and seeds to provide a variety of flavors and textures.

1/2 cup bacon crumbles (buy real bacon crumbles, or cook and cool 8 slices of thick cut, smoked bacon)
1/2 cup water
2 cups sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 ounces roasted salted cashews
1 teaspoon vanilla
coarse salt

1.  Cook the bacon until crispy, cool, and chop into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch pieces.
2.  Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Spray the stirring end of a large, heat-proof spoon as well.
3.  In a large saucepan, combine the following: water, sugar, butter, and corn syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Safety Warning: The heated mixture gets very hot and sticky. Do not let it touch your skin!

4.  Attach a candy thermometer to the pan. Cook the mixture over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally. Cook to 300°F (adjusted for altitude if necessary), about 10 minutes. The caramel should be the color of a paper bag. Drizzle a bit of caramel from your spoon, and it should spin out a thread.
5.  Remove the pot from the heat. Carefully stir in the baking soda. This will cause the mixture to bubble.
6.  Stir in the nuts, vanilla, and bacon.
7.  Immediately pour the brittle onto the baking sheet. Use the back of the spoon to spread the brittle into a thin, even layer.
8.  Sprinkle with the coarse salt. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.
9.  Break the brittle into large shards. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one month.

Plumbing Problems at Christmas? A #holiday #romance from @VickiBatman


Well, stuff happens. Plumbing problems come when we least expect them. I know I’ve been there, and I’m betting many of you have as well.

So why write plumbing into a holiday story? Like most writers, I’ve been asked where I get ideas. The idea to write about a Mr. Maintenance Man and a librarian hit me. I needed some catastrophe to bring them together, and voila! Plumbing.

I’ve also been asked if some of the things I’ve written about have happened in real life. And yes, they have. In “Holiday Disaster,” I write about a lost contact. When I was a single girl, this really did happen to me, except the maintenance man was in no way like my hero. No tool belt either.

Throughout my life, I’ve experienced plumbing problems. For example, the sewer backed up in my basement the day after a wedding reception held at my house. The plumber, my real-life hero, Roger, climbed on the roof to snake the drain through the vent. I’ve had pipes freeze, and again, Roger fixed everything. I’ve had potato peelings back up in the sink, and yes, Roger rescued me.

This past summer, Handsome and I traveled to Tuscany and stayed in an old farmhouse. A huge thunderstorm blew in and stayed for a whole day, which was great for reading and stitching. Then the power went out. Okay, not so bad. I had packed a book light. However, then the truth revealed itself—no electricity equaled no plumbing because the septic pump was … powered by electricity.

So yes, real life can provide fodder for books.

Here’s a bit about “Holiday Disaster”:

Hopes and wishes and holiday kisses...Sommerville holidays.

Days before Christmas, a librarian experiences plumbing issues and visits from Mr. Maintenance Man, who isn’t nearly as jolly as Santa Claus.



Merry Christmas to me. Not really.

Wrapping my hands around the older-than-time plumbing underneath my bathroom sink, I yanked, hoping-praying-hoping the darn thing would loosen, and all would be saved. But no. Nada. Too darn tight.

Obviously, somebody more muscular than me was required to strong-arm the pipe free. My shoulders hunched with helpless feelings. I should have closed the drain stopper to prevent my contact from swirling merrily away after it popped out of my eye and flew in the sink.

Feeling helpless sucks big time, and I hate it.

Not a great way to kick off the holiday season.

I should have paid more attention when Dad donned his Mr. Fix-it hat and repaired stuff in the family homestead. Maybe I would have learned something valuable, something resembling Plumbing 101. But like most little girls, playtime was ten times more fun than hanging with Dad and repairing broken stuff.

What to do. What to do. Nothing I could do. I declared “surrender” and called the condo’s emergency number. Mr. Maintenance Man told me he was on his way. I hoped he wasn’t humoring me. Lying—my number one enemy.

Get it here: Kris Bock at Amazon

Excerpt:

   What better way to spend the summer, than hunting for buried treasure?

   Erin shook her head. Who would’ve thought that she, the quiet, studious girl who’d spent her entire adult life in academia in one way or another, would be planning such an adventure?

   She checked that the front door was locked, a habit left over from living in bigger cities, grabbed her bike helmet, and went out the back.

   Erin wheeled the bike around the front of her house and mounted. At the corner, she paused and looked both ways. The long frontage road was dangerously narrow, with a cement wall on one side and a ditch on the other. Fortunately, traffic was normally light, and at this time of day the road lay empty. Erin pushed off, still grinning from her find. She rode on the right side, by the ditch, instead of facing traffic, because it was just too frightening to ride alongside the wall when a car passed.

   She’d gone a block when she heard the hum of a car engine as it pulled out from a side street behind her. She rode along the very edge of the pavement, even though the car would have plenty of room to pass her without oncoming traffic.

   Erin glanced over her shoulder. The black SUV 20 feet behind her hadn’t bothered to pull out into the road at all. Jerk. When would drivers learn to share the road with bicyclists? Erin pulled onto the two-foot wide gravel strip between the pavement and the ditch. She couldn’t stop without risking a skid, but she slowed so the SUV could pass.

   The engine roared. Erin glanced back again.

   Black metal bore down on her. Her heart lurched and the bike wobbled. This guy was crazy! She whipped her gaze forward, rose up in the seat, and pumped the pedals with all her power, skimming along inches from the ditch. He was just trying to scare her. She’d get his license plate and—

   She felt the bumper hit her back tire. The bike seemed to leap into the air, and she went flying. The dried mud and weeds of the ditch seemed to rise up to meet her.

   She didn’t even have time to scream.

The Mad Monk’s Treasure, a fun romp through the Southwest, is free on Kindle until December 2. Check it out, and if you like it, please leave a review (and maybe try some of my other books too).

Kris Bock writes novels of suspense and romance with outdoor adventures and Southwestern landscapes.  The Mad Monk’s Treasure follows the hunt for a long-lost treasure in the New Mexico desert. In The Dead Man’s Treasure, estranged relatives compete to reach a buried treasure by following a series of complex clues. In The Skeleton Canyon Treasure, sparks fly when reader favorites Camie and Tiger help a mysterious man track down his missing uncle. Each book stands alone with a couple who reaches their happy ending.
