Poem: …matrimony and the man II

2942523255_219619346c_b

Doves shot upwards

Snowfall in reverse

Confetti burst

the groom, and his groom

fine handsome catch

every bit his match

waiting on a promise,

all dolled up and fine

forever be mine

Vows are made

Doves are flown

Fizz all downed

Rings exchanged

Dance in dreams

flowergirl screams

(Too much cake. Allowed a sip of fizz
Parents, parents, why d’you do this?)

hand in hand and

husbands now

one last vow

wedding day done

cake’s crumbs,

Listen, grooms:

It begins now.

It’s not as if anything’s ever going to come of it, Michael has never looked at him with a trace of interest in that way… Until their experiments get closed down by the authorities, and they make one last reckless desperate attempt to reach an alternate reality.

Like it?  Pretty!  This is today’s alternate cover, for my fluffy romance title ‘Cupcake Kissin”.  Read on…

Caspar is a new post-grad with no money, no job, no boyfriend and no options. Then his sweet old aunt Gertie leaves him a cupcake bakery in her will. It’s based in LA, with a starry clientele, in the shape of gorgeous soap star Mack – who has a snooty academic boyfriend, but seems to like Caspar more than he should. Has Caspar inherited more than he bargained for?

Cupcake Kissin’ is FREE to read here on the blog or downloadable HERE!

Three point five. Nice attraction between the MCs, and an interesting combo of house restoration and magic!

Kitties!

This is an alternate cover forA Cat May Look, the story of Tim.  Tim is a Shifter, a were-person – and he tends to keep quiet about it. Mostly because he isn’t a werewolf, or a were-jaguar, or anything cool. No, he’s a were-domestic cat. Nothing wrong with that, right? But not exactly glamorous, just the same. So when he gets a huge crush on his next-door-neighbour, he doesn’t exactly spread the news around. Which makes it a little difficult when a witch puts a spell on him that has him stuck in his were-form, as Tibbles…

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ah, this is the best, it’s the best. It’s the deepest, the sweetest, it’s the saddest. What else can compare? Nuttin’, I’m tellin’ ya, nuttin’. No-one is ideal and perfect, here, not even the robot who was constructed to be that way. And that’s good, because beauty and love are incompatible with perfection.

If you don’t cry a little, you probably don’t have a soul. But your robot might.
