A CAT IN JACKBOOTS is an original story penned for PRAIRIE ROSE PUBLICATIONS, and we are so thrilled to have Deborah kick off our REGENCY LINE!


He is a hunter...despite being a scion of one of the most respected families of the ton, he enjoys solving the mysteries that life a price. And he is hot on the trail of a burglar robbing the titled members of London society.

She is saddled with a scatterbrained, matchmaking grandmother and a retired batman for a butler...and a black cat named Romeo...and carries a world of secrets. One slip, and it will cost her everything.

Neither is seeking romance...only sometimes love happens when you least expect it...


When he sensed her compliance, he deepened the embrace, pulling her body fully against this. Her hands grasped the back of his upper arms, holding on as she was buffeted by the dizzy, swirling sensations rolling through her. The vibrations in her blood, the feelings he evoked were nearly overwhelming; she was both terrified and ravenous for more. Sebastian’s hands moved on her back, down to the small of her spine, and then traced the curves of her derrière. Then in a startling move, he jerked her upward in the air.

“Wrap your legs around me, Cat,” he gasped.

She did as he wanted, but was trembling so hard, she was afraid he might drop her. Her fingernails bit into his sleeves. “I’m too heavy.”

“No, you are not. I won’t let you fall. You must learn to trust me, Mo Chridhe.” He kissed her neck. “We are a splendid match.”

In awe, Catlyn lifted her hand and traced the side of his face. He was majestic, a warrior of old stepping out of the mists of time. He was beautiful. And when she looked into his eyes she saw an open honesty. He was holding no secrets back from her.

“Lord Sebastian, you may commence the ravishing.”

  4. As the white rabbit said, "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date. I almost missed my release on this story I penned. I had a fall, and unfortunately my laptop was in my arms as the crash occurred. Needless to say my harddrive didn't appreciate been smashed around. I was promised a new computer by last Thursday, but naturally "over-night" delivery guaranteed is NOT guaranteed. The new lappy arrived two hours ago so I am rushing about in a dither trying catch up.

    Thanks the ladies at PRP so much for giving me the chance to write this wonderful story. If Cheryl hadn't approached me I might not have ever written this particular tale. I cannot thank you enough!!
