Meow Mistletoe - Holiday Extravaganza novelette
Barnes and Noble

Ivy has just cause to be wary of men after her long-time fiancĂ© backed out of their wedding. The slow fizzle of their undramatic relationship leaves her wondering if romance is a myth. Then, Adam, an intriguing new member of her pet organization, catches Ivy’s attention at the holiday party. Unfortunately, his cat Isis, a beautiful purebred Egyptian Mau, prefers to pick fights with her cat, Memnet. Ivy would like to get to know Adam better, but with her self-esteem in the gutter, wonders how she can approach him. Especially since pesky self-absorbed incoming president Almanzo treats her like arm candy whenever she and Adam try to talk.

When Ivy agrees to help a clingy fellow cat-lover find her missing pet, she learns that love doesn’t need theatrics to be deep and true. There’s hope for Adam and Ivy, if only their cats would approve.
