Year of the Cat is a paranormal romance and is released for the Kindle.
Jared stood in the snow and tried not to shiver. He usually wasn’t outside this early, but at least he could give his free lesson before working with the other patrons. He let out a breath and it blew out in a vapor. Even with his quilted pants and parka it was freezing. The whole bloody mountain range was Baltic. A light dusting of snow obscured the traces of yesterday’s activities.
A black and brown calico rubbed against his leg.
“Trying to make amends?” The cat stuck her nose in the air and turned away.
“Don’t get haughty with me, Ms. Puss, you started it.”
“Are you talking to the cat?” Morgan said softly behind him.
He sniffed and caught the light aroma of spice and flowers with an undertone of Morgan’s sweet feminine scent.
Jared swung around.
Morgan was dressed in a stylish sporty outfit of black bottoms and a bright pink jacket. It went well with her blonde hair and pale blue eyes.
She gave him a shy grin, he almost chuckled. “Such a sweet smile on a lovely lady. Is that smile all for me?”
When the cat hissed, he picked up a fistful of snow and dropped it on top of her. The calico ran.
Morgan huffed and sat her fists on her hips. “You’re mean. What did that cat ever do to you?”
“She scratched me once.”
“Only once?” She cocked her head.
“Well…” He couldn’t tell her the truth. “More than once.”
She strolled over, snow crunching under her boots. “And if I do something to displease you during our lesson, will you dump snow on me, too?”
In his excitement from seeing her again, he’d nearly forgotten he’d promised a free skiing lesson, but the thought of what other lessons he could give her made his pants tight.
He took her hand. “I’ll be gentle.”
She raised an eyebrow. “Promise?”
