Excerpt:
“Breakfast,” Vince said and waved a hand toward the table.
It was a squirrel’s wet dream. Or it would have been, if good-enough-to-lick-all-over-then-eat Vince hadn’t been sitting on the other side of the table. Maybe he could say it was any other squirrel’s wet dream—whatever, it was the breakfast of Roman squirrel emperors. 
A pile of thick, deep brown pancakes waited for him in the center of his plate. Raspberries and shaved almonds sprawled seductively over the side of the stack, glistening with sweet, sticky maple syrup. Some of the less audacious ones hid decorously beneath the edges of a heavy daub of whipped cream, but Nathan knew they were there, waiting for him to discover them. He could see them peeking diffidently out, uncertain whether they wanted to attract his attention or not.
And the best part—the most gorgeous massage therapist in the world was sitting across the table from him, watching him with eyes that were dark in more than just the usual way. He looked at Nathan like Nathan was a maple walnut ice cream with a peanut dip. Like he wanted to lick him all over and suck bits of him deep inside his mouth...

Chapter 1: Your New Baby/Litter and Your Human Neighbors

Humans are as curious as most feline related species, and the sight of young often creates an irresistible urge in humans to examine them closely. We aren’t entirely certain of the base reason for this undeniably instinctive behavior, though it has been speculated that it is a desire to compare other offspring to their own, and determine if the offspring is too weak or deformed to be allowed to live. It is highly recommended never to allow a human to hold your child, on the off chance that they decide that your child must be eaten for the genetic good of your species.

That being said, it will occasionally be necessary to leave your shelter with your child, and truly—this is to be desired. You should never allow your surroundings to negatively impact your child’s natural development and their ability to practice their native skills. All babies should learn to run and climb and stalk their prey. The important task at hand is to maintain a constant, low-level surveillance, ensuring that humans have no opportunity to abscond with your child. They have grocery stores to buy food in—they do not need to eat your child.

Meet the author:

Kate Lowell lives on the east coast of Canada, in an old farm house that has way more personality than it has any right to. During the winter, she spends her time dreading snow, cursing at snow, shoveling snow, and scheming ways to shove it down the kids' necks. During the summer, she prays not to have snow. :)

Kate likes to play in ALL the sandboxes. While her main genres are paranormal and contemporary suspense, she is also interested in science fiction, fantasy and--weirdly--romantic comedy. She’s willing to pay large amounts of money to anyone who can come up with a Time Turner, or find her an agreeable Time Lord to sort out her scheduling problems.

You can contact her at katelowellbooks (at) gmail.com . If you think you’d like to try writing gay romance, come visit her critique group (Link can be found at
