Kissing Forgs

Kissing Frogs... Tease me please!!

Here is an excerpt and teaser from Kissing frogs to titillate the senses...

Excerpt #1…

A few glasses of wine made it easier to admit what the real problem was. The total lack of confidence in myself and my own instincts. My own personal albatross. Every time I saw his face or heard his voice, it reminded me of my every failure. I had been head over heels in love with a guy who hadn’t given a crap less about me beyond what I could do for him. The moment somebody offered him something I couldn’t, he was gone. It was the promise of fame and celebrity that lured him. It wasn’t even really about Avalon. She was just a bonus to his new life, a brainless bitch who told him how great he was and hung on his every word.

The bitch got boobs and I got to wipe my business account almost clean to pay the wedding bills. But the punishment didn't end there. Thanks to his newfound fame, the tabloids were all over anything that had to do with him and it seemed that most of our graduating class cared more about their own fifteen minutes of fame than compassion for a classmate. So, I got the parting gift of public humiliation as our story was told over and over again with varying degrees of accuracy. Even now, a year later, people either looked at me with pity or made snarky comments behind my back. The bitchier ones made them to my face. It sucked.

The whole experience had made me not only question my own intuition and judgment when it came to the male species, but my intelligence as well. From time to time, it also made me seriously consider a rather dramatic lifestyle change. One that involved long dresses, sensible black shoes, wimples, and celibacy. The thought of the latter part was the only thing that kept me from running out to the nearest nun recruiting center. Of course, celibacy was only a problem in theory at this point.

Kissing Frogs

Kissing Forgs... Let's get personal with Cassidy!!

Now that we have had a chance to get familiar with Kim's Book, Kissing Frogs... Let's get up close and personal with the leading Lady Cassidy!!!

So without further ado here are five little known facts about Cassidy

1.  The first book Cassidy ever read was The Little House on the Prairie. For years, all she wanted was to move to the midwest and wear prairie skirts and ride in a covered wagon.
2.  A few months after Luke dumped Cassidy, he came back into town. Cassidy and Taylor got drunk and snuck to the parking lot outside the bar Luke was in. They found his car and put 2 rotting fish deep under the hood of his precious Mustang. After rubbing them all over the seats inside. He should have gotten his key back from Cassidy!
3.  Cassidy's biggest guilty pleasure is reading themed cozy mysteries. Totally not hip, but she loves them. Ones centered around tea shops, or crafty things, or in a small town... it doesn't matter.
4.  Secretly, she's a giant nerd. She speaks fluent Swedish, just because. She's also a gamer with an obsession for World of Warcraft and old Sega games.
5.  The same night she and Taylor fished Luke's car, she got a tattoo of a penis with Luke's name on it. It was awful. Thank goodness for her, Taylor's husband Mark is a tattoo artist and he covered it with a gorgeous spray of pink and yellow plumeria.

Looks like our leading lady has a little bit of rebellion running through her veins! Now that we've got a little more Personal you should all go get the book and Finish getting to know Cassidy!!

Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs...

To say that Cassidy's love life has been a hot mess would be an understatement.  Bad boys have been just that... bad.  Love and fairy tale romance?  She's over it.  But her family won't give it up, so Operation Marry Cassidy is born, throwing one guy after another at her.  So Cassidy has kissed a lot of frogs and not one of them turned into a prince.

But when Cassidy agrees to take care of her niece's beloved pet frog, little does she know just how much her life is about to change...

NOTE:  Kissing Frogs is also available on Kindle Unlimited.

Author Bio 
I was born and raised in a tiny town in the wilds of northern New York, a pretty, little college town called Potsdam. I grew up in a family of lawyers and teachers and bucked all the traditions. Before becoming a writer, I spent a lot of years wearing combat boots in the US Army. I spent most of my time in boots working as a Signals Intelligence Analyst (no jokes!) and a linguist. I also worked as a tech writer, an entirely different kind of writing, for Corning Glass Works. Now, I’m an Army wife and a mom to four sons.  Over the years, our Army life has taken us all over the place and I have been lucky enough to work and live in some pretty amazing places.  Now we live in Hawaii, just minutes from the beach!

I am a writer thoroughly in love with words. Reading them, writing them… I love that words can take you outside of your world and let the unimaginable become imaginable. When I’m not writing or lounging on the beach, I’m probably somewhere with my nose in a book.
