To Snarl or To Snuggle

She just wants to make it through her whirlwind wedding. Too bad life isn’t cooperating.
Chloe thinks her life is just about perfect. She’s finally got her psychic abilities under control, her relationship with her father has never been better, and she’s finally marrying her shape-shifter boyfriend Jorge. But when a teenage shape-shifter in need of help leads Jorge’s rival to their door, Chloe’s perfect life deserts her. Chloe’s mother and grandmother find themselves in a psychic feud that leaves Chloe caught in the wake, and a woman with suspect motives insinuates herself into Chloe’s life. Throw in a shocking revelation about the origins of her family’s extrasensory abilities, and she’s not sure she’ll make it down the aisle in one piece, let alone live long enough for a happily ever after…
And she thought meeting her in-laws was tough.
I sink onto the mattress, one leg tucked under me. Enoki rubs along my arm.
Jorge scratches Enoki’s head. “Looks like Enoki wants to help.”
From the end of the bed, I hear Sashi’s mental hrrumph. “Like Enoki can give you great insight.”
I give Sashi a look before turning to scratch Enoki’s chin. I speak aloud so Jorge can get at least a taste of the conversation. “Enoki is very intuitive, aren’t you, buddy?”
He purrs and gives Sashi a smug look. “Sashi is just jealous Jorge didn’t say she should help.”
Sashi does the cat equivalent of an eye roll. “I don’t need permission to express my opinion.”
“Ok, you two, settle down. I know having extra people around the house is stressful for you, but no getting nasty with each other.”
Enoki head butts me. “Sorry.” I lean over and kiss his head.
Sashi sniffs. “I suppose we can both assist you with your reading.” She rests her head on her paws and closes her eyes.
Jorge nudges me. “Are the cats settled down yet?”
“Yeah. They both are going to share their opinions.”
He chuckles. “Well, we best get started before Sashi decides she has more important things to do.”
I smirk. Sashi caught the gist of his comment and turns a narrowed gaze on Jorge.
Settling down to business, I hold in the forefront of my mind my question: What does all I’ve learned and experienced the past few days mean going forward? I shuffle the oversized deck awkwardly, and when it feels right, I stop, cut the deck with my left hand, and flip the first card, representing the past. The Magician.
About the Author:
I like books that are funny and fun to read (and hot!) but also make me think or look at the world in a new way.
These days you’ll find me writing, pet sitting, juggling a number of freelance gigs, and reigning as my home’s domestic goddess. I live in the Midwestern U.S. with my husband, dog and cats. Alas, I have, as of yet, been unable to teach my husband how to purr.
