Relationship Status: Complicated

Professional baseball player Halo Todd doesn’t like failure, but he can never turn down a challenge. Especially when there’s a pretty woman involved. How else would he end up dressed as a rooster, helping a complete stranger compete on a wacky game show? Even when they’re eliminated after the first round, Halo isn’t about to lose the girl…

Alyn is stunned when gorgeous, generous Halo whisks her off for a dream vacation to the beach–she’s been let down by friends and even family so many times, she’s lost count. Later, he offers to lend a hand getting her vintage shop up and running. But his constant–and ridiculous–purchases are the last thing she needs. How can she convince the stubborn man that she doesn’t need his help–not when all she wants is his heart…

IMG_3401Premium Canadian-Grown Fine-Grind Catnip
Manufacturer: Pet Magasin
Weight: .3 ounces
Source: Product provided by the manufacturer for review

Naturally grown on Canadian farms, this premium catnip is harvested at the peak of ripeness, then dried and fine-ground to preserve the maximum of its essential oils and fresh, minty fragrance. The fine grind also ensures that there are no sharp twigs that might get caught in your cat’s teeth.

When cats respond to catnip, it’s plain to see that they’re having great fun. Cats typically roll onto their backs, rub their faces in the catnip, purr, meow, sometimes run around, and generally get playful and silly.

A member of the mint family, catnip and its active ingredient nepetalactone is a harmless attractant and mild intoxicant for cats. Its effects are self-limiting, as cats stop responding to the scent after about five to fifteen minutes. Most cats are affected by catnip, but some are not.

Although she’s been spinning stories her entire life, the first tale Margo Bond Collins specifically remembers writing down was Wizard of Oz fan-fiction when she was seven–and it included a romance between Dorothy and the Wizard. That one was never published (for which she is eternally thankful), but Margo has been writing ever since. Along the way, she picked up a Ph.D. in eighteenth-century British literature–mostly because graduate school allowed her to keep reading and writing for a living. Her study of the period’s amatory fiction (arguably the earliest form of category romance) influences her own romantic fiction. She currently teaches college English courses online, but writing fiction is her first love. After a decade of moving all around the country (Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta are a few of the places she’s lived), she has settled in her native Texas. Margo lives near Fort Worth with her husband, her daughter, and several very spoiled cats, and she spends most of her free time daydreaming about heroes, monsters, cowboys, and villains, and the strong women who love them.
