A Free Sweet #Romance - Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café free Feb 7-10 #MFRWorg

Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café: a Furrever Friends Sweet Romance is FREE February 7-10!

What do you do when you meet the guy of your dreams? Set him up with your sister, of course.

Kari doesn't have time for love when she's opening her new cat café. She’s busy hiring employees, fighting with the health inspector – oh, and welcoming 16 shelter cats. She's doing this for the cats, the community, and her family. The café will give her sister, Marley, a job worthy of her baking skills.

Then a tattooed military vet wanders in claiming he’s a master baker. Surely Marley will fall for a guy this sweet, this sexy, this tasty.

Colin has other ideas. It's Kari who makes him want to turn up the heat. But he's spent the last two years recovering from physical and psychological wounds. Is he really ready for a relationship? He's not even sure he should commit to Samson, the sweet Siamese cat who steals his heart.

The Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series features the workers and customers at the Furrever Friends Cat Café, and the adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever homes. Each book is a complete story with a happy ending for one couple. These sweet romances will leave you with the warm, fuzzy feeling of cuddling a purring cat.

If you enjoy friends to lovers tropes, work romances, military heroes, and heroines completely failing at playing the matchmaker, check out Coffee and Crushes at the Cat Café. You'll also find rescue cats with plenty of personality and their own ideas about love.


Grab your copy now! Then follow up with book 2, Kittens and Kisses at the Cat Café, and the just released book 3, Tea and Temptation at the Cat Café.

Tea and Temptation at the Cat Café - a sweet #romance #MFRWauthor


I now have a book description and a cover, and Tea and Temptation at the Cat Café is up for pre-order!

Can two lonely people get a second chance at finding love?

Zach may be a best-selling novelist, but it's been a long time since he's felt truly alive. In the last six months, he moved to the country, his wife left him, and he was diagnosed with cancer. Now he lives in a haze of treatments, writer's block, and simply trying to survive each week. But when a pretty woman comes into his favorite café and throws herself down on a padded bench with a groan of despair, he feels something he thought he'd lost long ago: curiosity.

As a veterinarian, Jenna knows both joy and heartbreak. The former she can share with her clients. The latter she keeps to herself. She learned one lesson from her ex-husband: Men don't want to deal with your emotions.​ It's odd to have a stranger ask about her problems. It's even more of a shock when he offers to solve one of them by fostering the sick kitten abandoned by its owners.

​Zach and Jenna bond over kitten care and build a close friendship. Could they have more? Zach is finally starting to hope for a future, ideally one that includes Jenna, but he can't move forward until he's dealt with his past. Meanwhile, Jenna is afraid to risk her heart on someone who might not survive the next few months.

If you enjoy friends to lovers tropes, or seasoned romance/mature romance, check out Tea andTemptation at the Cat Café. You'll also find rescue cats with plenty of personality and their own ideas about love. 

Read an excerpt from chapter 1 in last week's blog post.

A New Cat Cafe sweet #romance novel is coming soon! #MFRWauthor

Book three of the Furrever Friends Sweet Romance series is almost done! The working title is Tea and Temptation at The Cat Café. I'm a little concerned about fitting "Temptation"on a book cover though.

Here's the opening: 

Zach frowned at the fluffy white cat sprawled across his laptop keyboard. Working at a cat café came with certain challenges. He could hardly blame the cats. After all, he offered them a warm place to sleep and the opportunity to interfere with a human's work. Nirvana.

He sighed and scratched Snowball in her favorite place, her armpit.

Kitten On A Laptop @ Anita_Bonita via Deposit Photos
He hadn't been getting any work done anyway. He was supposed to have his latest novel to his agent in a week, so she could review it and offer feedback, and he could revise it, before sending the manuscript to the publisher in two months. At this rate, he'd finish the book in six months. Or maybe never. He had a hundred pages, but they were so lifeless, he felt like he was moving dolls rather than writing a thriller that was actually, well, thrilling.

He gazed at the cat, her blue eyes half-closed in ecstasy. At least someone was happy.

The door into the cat room opened, but with his mind on his own problems, Zach had only a vague impression of a woman crossing the room.

She threw herself facedown on the padded bench along the wall and groaned.

Zach glanced over.

Long brown hair spilled over a burgundy sweater. Faded jeans hugged her hips and long legs. He couldn't see her face.

She didn't stir, even when Merlin, the Maine Coon who weighed over 20 pounds, walked across her legs and curled up on her back.

Snowball meowed, reminding Zach to keep up the petting.

He got his hand moving again. He needed to get his brain moving. He should be focusing on his story, not shooting glances at the odd woman. But for the first time in months, he felt curious about something. Who was she? Why was she upset? Because something about her actions, that moan, the way her hand curled into a fist on the bench above her head, suggested more than exhaustion. She was angry and miserable. In under a minute, this stranger was more of a real person than any of the cardboard characters in his novel.

That probably said less about her, and more about how far he had fallen from the award-winning, best-selling novelist he'd been the year before.

The door opened again. This time Zach looked over at once, like a theatergoing waiting to see who would enter the stage next.

I hope that by next week I'll have pre-ordered links up. In the meantime, check out the Furrever Friends Cat Café with a free sweet romance novella complete at 10,000 words.

In college, Cheyenne and Nash were inseparable. Then she followed her dream, heading to Asia to work on big cat conservation. Nash stayed behind, protecting his secret: a phobia of all cats.

Fifteen years later, Cheyenne comes home. Can Nash convince her to stay and give him another chance?

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?
