New Release Day! Healed with a Kiss, Cat's Paw Cove Book 20!!

Where science ends, magic begins…

Brendan Redbird is a man of science and a medical professional. When this very uptight, predictable guy is adopted by a naughty talking cat (Tom) and his two brothers (Dick and Harry), Brendan's life makes an unpredictable turn.

Tom smacks a girl on the butt and lets Brendan take the blame. The only problem is the girl Tom smacked is a water nymph, Myrotessa, or Tessa for short. She isn't about to let Brendan off with that ridiculous excuse. Tessa has healing waters and the gift of prophecy—but she did not see that coming.

When the magical felines of Cat's Paw Cove begin succumbing to a mysterious malady, Tessa and Brendan are forced to work together to find a cure. Along the way to helping others, they fix the cracks in their hearts—and are healed with a kiss.

 Excerpt

Externally, the cottage looked like all the other little houses on the street: a mirror image of Charly and Dylan’s Furever Home. Internally, however, all the required furnishings displayed eye-searing shades of neon green, orange, and pink. Even the refrigerator bore a paisley pattern in the same hues. No wonder the owners had been unable to sell the place. He rolled his bag into the one and only bedroom. He had to admit, the walls painted like Van Gogh’s Starry Night were impressive. He searched for the nightstand with the touted eye masks—and stopped.

Three bicolor cats lounged on the bed. One cat had not only a black moustache, but thick eyebrows, making him look like a feline Groucho Marx. Another stopped grooming his large ears to stare at Brendan. A third cat looked as if someone had given him a perm. Tight curls covered every inch of his body, including his tail—which he was chasing.

Speaking to himself, Brendan said, “I didn’t know the rental came with cats.”

“It doesn’t,” the feline that looked like Groucho replied. “You’re our human, and we’re your cats. I’m Tom, and these are my brothers, Dick and Harry.”

Holy guacamole! It’s a talking cat!

Buongiorno,” Dick said. “Welcome to la famiglia.”

Curly-haired Harry waggled his ears and pressed his nose with a paw and honked like a bicycle horn.

Brendan burst out laughing. “I don’t know how my sister did this, but this is the funniest prank I’ve seen in years.” He walked around the room, scanning the walls and furniture for hidden cameras. “I want the video. This should be on the Internet.”

“You do know you’re in Cat’s Paw Cove, right?” Tom asked. “A magical place where anything can happen and does?”

Brendan waved his hand at the felines. “You can stop fooling around now, Charly. I know you and Big D must have taken weeks to plan this.”

“Ahem.” Tom cleared his throat. “We are Sherwood cats, which means we are magical talking cats. Have you not met others like us?”

“You mean like Little Pie and Pizza Pie?” He ran his hand under the nightstand. “Charly has always been able to throw her voice. She did it as a kid, didn’t you, Charly? You can come out now.”

Tom smacked Brendan on the arm with a lightning fast thwap. “For a smart man, you are very dense.”

“Ow. What’d you do that for, Groucho?”

“My name is not Groucho. It is Tom. Would you like me to call you Red?”

Brendan rubbed the still stinging spot. “Wait until dinner, Charly. You are going to pay for this.”

99 Cents Sale: Learning to Love by Jennifer Wilck

 

Dina Jacobs is a single librarian who has never fit in due to her off-the-charts intelligence, frizzy hair and rounder-than-socially-acceptable figure. She left her past behind until she receives an invitation to her ten-year high school reunion, and all her insecurities return.

Adam Mandel is a single corporate attorney who just missed his third deadline at his father's law firm, the law firm where he is up for junior partner. With his reputation on the line, Adam needs all the help he can get to convince his father that he deserves the promotion.

When Dina and Adam run into each other on a deserted road, Dina thinks Mr. Flashypants can't possibly be interested in someone like her. Adam thinks Dina is just the person to help him improve his reputation. Lies and insecurities force them to take a look at themselves. Can they trust each other to look beyond the surface?

Excerpt
What the hell just happened?
 She wanted to be friends.
The only kind of “friend” he wanted to be with her had “boy” attached to it. No, that wasn’t true. He enjoyed her friendship because he loved talking to her, hearing her opinions, sharing himself with her.

But he was becoming more attracted to her. So far, they’d only kissed, but that one kiss, that unbelievable kiss, haunted him. His lips still burned where they’d touched hers, his insides still turned to jelly when he thought about it. In fact, he’d been hoping there would have been more kissing in her apartment once he’d apologized for his gaffe.

But she’d focused on their arrangement and her overreaction, and here he was pulling away from the curb into rush hour traffic.

She thought he was dating her only to impress his father. If he were one hundred percent honest with himself, he’d acknowledge the partial truth in that statement. But the more time he spent time with her, when he wasn’t royally screwing things up with her, the more he wanted to move beyond their arrangement.

His head was another matter. It was still focused on not making a fool of himself, on maintaining the right reputation, on spinning the right message.

But listening to his head was probably what had gotten him into this mess in the first place. As unbelievable as it might sound, it was time to follow his heart.

Jennifer Wilck started telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. Pretty soon, her head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Even as an adult, she thinks about the characters and stories at night before she falls asleep or walking the dog. Eventually, she started writing them down. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and her stories always end with happily ever after.

In the real world, she’s the mother of two amazing daughters and wife of one of the smartest men she knows. When she’s not writing, she loves to laugh with her family and friends, is a pro at finding whatever her kids lost in plain sight, and spends way too much time closing doors that should never have been left open in the first place. She believes humor is the only way to get through the day and does not believe in sharing her chocolate.

She writes contemporary romance, some of which are mainstream and some of which involve Jewish characters. She’s published with The Wild Rose Press and all her books are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
