As I've mentioned in the past, Lois Winston, she who writes about moi, has also published romance, romantic comedy, romantic suspense, and chick lit ebooks under her Emma Carlyle pen name. Want to try one out for free? All weekend you can do just that by downloading a free copy of Hooking Mr. Right if you have a Kindle or a Kindle app on your computer or phone. 

Hooking Mr. Right is a romantic comedy about a stubborn couple brought together by a matchmaking alley cat.

Can a butt-ugly alley cat named Cupid bring together two people driven apart by secrets and lies? After writing a doctoral thesis that exposed fraud in the pop-psychology genre, thirty-two year old professor Althea Chandler sacrifices her professional integrity to save her family from financial disaster. She secretly becomes best-selling romance guru Dr. Trulee Lovejoy, self-proclaimed expert on how to catch a man, even though Thea's a miserable failure when it comes to relationships -- especially those with the opposite sex.

Burned by a failed marriage, Luke Bennett finds himself pursued by Dr. Lovejoy toting women after a gossip columnist dubs him New York's most eligible bachelor. When he at first mistakes Thea for one of the women out to snare him, sparks fly, but the two soon find themselves battling sparks of a less hostile nature, thanks in part to that alley cat. Luke believes he's finally found an honest woman. Unfortunately, Thea is anything but honest. She's got more secrets than the CIA and a desperate gossip columnist out to expose her. 

Cupid definitely has his work cut out for him.

And just to remind you of something else Lois is doing, through October she's donating $500 to breast cancer research for every 1,000 copies of her Emma Carlyle books sold. You can find blurbs, excerpts, and buy links to various ebook vendors on her Emma Carlyle website.

Happy reading! -- AP

Hope you enjoy the book, Dru! I think you'll find the humor similar to that in my Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mysteries
