A sexy thriller about the animal in all of us.
Aidan uses his superpower to stabilize minds at the Hollyreed Specialist Hospital. Ulani uses hers to chase rats on rooftops. Until she’s caught and deposited in Aidan’s care.
At the hospital, Aidan finds Ulani’s room empty - save for a cat, whose fur retracts in favor of silky skin and a vamp-gorgeous femme fatale.
Aidan’s obsession with Ulani grows -
While patients at the hospital go missing.
While patients at the hospital go missing.
We’re in a bit of a conundrum with Ulani’s erratic changes between cat and woman, but I still have to bite down on my lip to stifle the urge to chuckle.
“Ulani, listen to me. You delayed the change for fifteen minutes in there. Have you ever done that before?”
“No, but still.”
“Be patient. You’ll master it.”
“But I’ve meditated for a freaking month straight. If it worked that well for you, why isn’t it kicking in for me? And you were just a little kid too—it should be even easier for me.”
Ah, she’s sad. Frustrated. She turns her head to the side from her facedown position on the bed. Warm, wet cheeks and shiny, messy hair; her pull is even stronger now that she isn’t even trying. She’s so lovely.
I stare at her lips and lower my voice when I explain, “I think people are different. What works fast for one person might take longer for someone else. Who knows; me being a kid when I learned how to control my power might have made it more intuitive.”
Her breathing slows. Focusing on me, her gaze drifts over my face. Gleaming with freshly shed tears, the disappointment still lingers in her eyes, but they hold something else too.
If I followed my instincts, I’d ignite my feelers to read her. I won’t though. I need to see her like this. Just observe how she reacts to me.
Her shoulders. They curve above the sheets, ivory white and as beautiful as - all of her. I realize she never dressed after changing back from Mina. She just went to bed.
“Do you want your clothes?” I whisper.
She blinks slowly, eclipsing then displaying emerald green. Her mouth is so red. Tasty, I know.
“No…” She doesn’t invite me with words, but her lips part, showing me.
I sit down on the bed next to her. Cup her face and stroke her cheeks with my thumbs before I trail down to the start of her neck.
Praise for the Book
"Not your everyday paranormal! Sunniva Dee's amazing cover sits at the top of my list; it's the absolute perfect fit for this story. Ulani is my favorite character in this romantic thriller. She's feisty and uses her dynamite sex appeal to drive Aidan batty! LOVE!! The banter, oh man the angst between these two characters, well, Sunniva really upped the bar with Cat Love." ~ Angela McPherson
"The story had me racing through the pages. I was holding my breath waiting for something terrible to happen. But, in this tale, the villains stay villains and justice is served. Cat Love offers readers a wonderful message. When you take yourself out of the equation and focus on someone else, you’ll find true love. Thanks again Sunniva Dee for an awesome story!" ~ Shantella Benson
"The writing style was perfectly paced and had depth and detail that pull the reader in. The storyline is unique with a touch of mystery and steam that will appeal to readers of all genres." ~ Kolleen
"I adored this book! Aiden is such a good man. And Ulani cracked me up with some of her hijinks! There is no cliffhanger for those of you that hate them. I would highly recommend this book. There is romance, mystery, and so much more!" ~ Jennifer
"Seriously ... this book is one of my favorites of Sunniva Dee's. She is really breaking out of her comfort zone with Cat Love, but it works a million-fold. Part mystery, part super-hero, part romance, part thriller, this has something for everyone. Sunniva's newest leading lady, Ulani, is sassy, tempestuous, and always ready for an adventure, especially considering that she is sometimes...a cat. With Aidan, a man with powers of his own, by her side, they discover a dark mystery at the hospital where he works. There's a lot of angst, a lot of nail-biting moments and several times I think I stopped breathing. I'm pretty sure I needed Aidan's calming powers at one point! Great job, Sunniva!" ~ Rachel
From the Author
Originally from Norway, I moved to the United States twelve years ago. I hold a Master’s degree in languages and taught Spanish at college level before settling in at the Savannah College of Art and Design as an adviser.
I write New Adult fiction, sometimes with a paranormal twist - like in Shattering Halos, published by The Wild Rose Press in February 2014 and in Stargazer, released November 2014. The first book I’ve self-published was the New Adult Contemporary novel Pandora Wild Child, which made me a proud indie author in October 2014.
I specialize in impulsive heroines, bad-boys, and good-boys running amok. Then, there’s the intense love, physical and emotional attraction beyond reason - sensory overload for the reader as well as for the characters. Like in real life, I hope you’re unable to predict what comes next in my stories.
Yes, so I write what I love to read, and depending on the reader, you’ll find my books to be a fast-paced emotional rollercoaster - or disturbing because the struggles of love aren’t your thing. Here’s to hoping you have the same reading vice as me!
