A warm-hearted, fun filled rom-com novella laden with love, music…and cats.

When his ringing doorbell wakes Devlin from a post birthday party hangover, he finds a beautiful singing telegram dressed as a kitten on the other side, who leaves him intrigued and confused in equal measures. His mysterious songstress has the voice of an angel and the devil’s own temper to match.

Katherine ‘Kat’ Grant has one dream, and that’s singing. To achieve it, she needs admission to the exclusive Perdies College of Music. Kat’s adolescent years were difficult, being dependant on the charity of others left her with a fierce independent streak and a loathing of special treatment. She’ll succeed on her own merits without anyone’s help, especially the cheeky, alluring Devlin who seems to have squeezed himself into every aspect of her life.

Devlin knows he has the power to make all of Kat’s dreams come true. But wielding that power means he could lose her forever.

Can a charismatic cat loving hero and his sassy stubborn singer find their own love song?

Find out, in Purr-fect Pitch.


Read an Excerpt


“I don’t want you falling.”

“You’ve seen me run in heels.”

“Fair point, I—” his voice dropped away.

“Devlin? Devlin? Where’d you go?” Kat felt around beside her in the dark and came up with empty air.

“Ouch, down here. I tripped over the ornamental rockery.”

“What? Are you hurt?” She dropped to her knees, searching for him, her questing hands encountering the fine wool of his trousers. His quick intake of breath was her first clue, even before her fingers brushed against the zipper at his groin. Kat yanked her hand away. Great, now she was groping him.

“Is my chin bleeding?”

“I can’t see. Stay there, let me get my phone.” Kat rummaged through her shoulder bag, and flicked on the phone’s torch app. Light flooded the area, revealing Perdies owner sprawled on the ground, one foot snagged under a large rock.

“I knew that bloody rockery was a bad idea.” He dabbed the grazes on his chin and cheek.

“Here,” she handed him a tissue. “Can you move? Is anything broken?”

“Only my ego.”

All that languid grace and elegance had vanished, lost in an awkward tangle of limbs. Kat bit her lip to fight off a giggle.

“Are you laughing, Katherine?”

“No.” The single, high pitched word would have made a castrato envious.

    1. Hi Bea. I'm an avid reader and will dive headfirst into most genres including scifi, fantasy, paranormal, comedy...about the only thing I can't handle is horror. Romantic Suspense is one of my favorite genres, Lately I've been delving into cozy mysteries too for something a little lighter but still within the mystery/suspense genre. Favorite authors at the moment are Nalini Singh and Demelza Carlton for fantasy, and Polly Holmes for some fun and light hearted cozy mysteries

    2. Thank you so much for your response! We have the same reading tastes I see with romantic suspense being one of my favorite tropes and I love everything sci-fi, especially dystopian stories. I also love paranormal stories and enjoy reading scientific and historical textbooks.
