Welcome to the Frisky Bean
Coffee to Wake you Up
Pastries to Turn you On

Listen… My daily goddess card tried to warn me that a big change was coming. She did. But… I was still not prepared for the impact that he would have on my life. That day when we met, I quite literally fell into him.

It was mortifying. It was exhilarating.
It was totally unprofessional. It was hot.

While our actions and bodies were most definitely aligned, our intentions were not. How so, you ask?

Well, I was blissfully busy pursuing my goals for my new café, The Frisky Bean. I did not ask, nor have the time, to deal with complications. And, since I felt as though we were both falling hard, all seemed well-blended.

That right there was mistake number one through five thousand, because he has no understanding of love and my goddess cards have some explaining to do.

Here’s what I know… Sometimes even the best recipes flop while a recipe riddled with mistakes can yield unexpected perfection. What were we?

A freaking delight. Stop asking me and read our story.

Don’t forget your oven mitts because one thing we were very good at is bringing the heat.

CW: Discussed childhood loss of a parent to cancer. Parental neglect.

Mars’ quirky cross-genre debut is a Romeo-and-Juliet tale with a vampire and an alien who meet when humans rebel against the extraterrestrials on Earth. ... A delightful story that shows supernatural beings can be romantic—and also very funny.

Dear Reader,

What’s a geeky, hacker, vampire-in-hiding girl supposed to do when her mind says, “NO,” but her body says, “YES?” Perhaps she needs to listen to her heart as the tie breaker. Easier said than done for this jaded blood sucker. I don’t think I can trust it where the alien leader is concerned… I think my body may have bribed it while my head wasn’t paying attention.

After all, I’m the leader of the resistance movement to relocation and he is the leader of the aliens wanting to relocate us. It doesn’t make any sense. Now to learn to keep my fangs to myself. Or not. Time will tell…

Hugs and bites,
