I was very excited to learn that my good friend from Malaysia, Ellen Whyte had published her eleventh novel, the Blackmail Bride. Yep, number eleven! This one she did under the pen name of Normanda Whyte and not only is it her first romance novel, it’s also her first
e-book too. That means that it is available for the most popular
e-book readers! Not only that, 10% of the earnings from the book sales will go to Furry Friends Farm, a wonderful rescue group!
I must admit, I don’t read too many romance books, but I guess I’m just a romantic at heart because this one is a page turner. I got involved with the characters in the first couple of pages. Who is this Jack, and how did he get in trouble in the first place? And what about Lucy? Can she really help him? Nope, I’m not going to tell you, you need to buy the book and find out for yourself. You won’t be sorry! Want a teaser??? You can download the first chapter HERE but clicking on DOWNLOAD SAMPLE. You’ll want to read the rest.
I follow Ellen and her cats Au and Target on a regular basis on their blog at Katz and Other Tales, so if you don’t know them please stop by and pay them a visit. Au just went through an ordeal and had to have an operation, but fortunately he is recovering nicely.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
Note: I was not compensated in any way for this review, the opinions expressed herein are my own and are completely honest.
I love it when a book sucks me in!

There is nothing like a good book with a big mug of tea on a cold Sunday morning. Thanks for the book review!
Whoa, we were worried you had blackmailed Scylla there for an instant………Mommy likes romances so we thinks this will make a good Christmas present for her. Thanks for the book review.
That does look like a good book. We will have to check out getting it. Mom likes books like that. Hope you guys are all staying warm. Sure is cold here. Take care.
Thanks Brian for the 411. I am going to check it out! I love a cat that reads..Alex, like his dad doesn't read, but instead asks me to do it for him and just give a summary!
That sounds like a great book! Thanks for the review
Great review. And thanks for the introduction to Katz and Other Tales.
The Human is always reading and reading. Frankly I don't know why she can't devote ALL her time to me!
Sounds like a good book! 11 books, wow that's amazing!
Your pal, Pip
We'll check it out.
That is wonderful that she gives 10% to a rescue group. We will check the book out.
Hoje eu vim te chamar para assinar uma petição lá no blog. Por favor, nao deixe de ir e divulgue em seu blog também. Vamos nos mobilizar para ajudar os animais.Registra lá no blog tua participação, comenta.
We think it's wonderful she's donating part of the sales and hope the book is very successful!
I think it's such a loving thing to devote part of the earnings to such a wonderful cause.
I re-Tweeted her news and also precious Moosie's plight.
Beautiful Brian!! I can't wait to read this – I've got a backlog of pdfs to read – but this truly sounds so good!!! And what a great cause too!
Hello too to wonderful Zoe, Dolly, Sascha and Gracie! Take care
We'll try to get mama interested in the book……..she was such a romantic person until romance was unkind to her one too many times….she needs to soften her heart romancewise again, and we purray this book will do it.
thank you for a wonderful review and for not giving the whole book away in it! 🙂
Will have to check this out!
Love, Caren and Cody
Concatulations on winning treats from Catladyland!!
Nothing like reading a good book. Sometimes its fun to read a type you don't usually read. I don't usually read mysteries, but last week I tried one of Janet Evanovich's books and it was kind of fun.
Sounds like a neat book, we will have to check it out!
I still have not had anyone read this book to me and I am still offering free lap time to anyone who buys the book and reads it to me.
That sounds like a good book…we will check it out!!! Lots of love, Holly and mom
We will have to get mum to have a look at this book – how kind of Ellen to give 10% to Furry Friends Farm.
You know I love romance! I will be sure to check it out! Yay for romance books!
Mommy has this book on her Kindle Christmas list!
That does look like a good book.
Hey if they is donating proceeds to a rescue than I thinks it is worth reading…AND, it does sound likes a good book too.''kinda likes killin' 2 squirels withs one stone. Good book and helpin' out a rescue.
Brian,ainda não recebia a tua morada para te mandar a prenda do sorteio que ganhas-te,não sei se não queres enviar a morada"se não quizeres não tem mal eu percebo" ou se não tinhas percebido…diz-me só se queres a prenda ou não …

Momma loves to read and she is so glad that she got an ipad this year, so she can download books and lots of other things too.
Good review Brian!
Nice book review, Brian! The book title is very attractive, too.
We met Au and Target recently and have been visiting their very interesting blog. We have noticed the book at CB but didn't connect it with the kitties' mom. Will certainly check it out.
Wow, Brian, thanks for the pawsome endorsement! I'm really chuffed. Also blushing 🙂
Mom likes romance books and this sounds good. It's so good of her to give some of the proceeds to a worthy cause.
Maybe this is something we can get our mom for Christmas!! What a great gift!!
We have been curious about this book. Thanks for the review, Brian, now we're really want to read it!
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, and Hollie
A good book, a warm blankie to cuddle under, and something warm to nosh…winter heaven! Thanks for the book review, sounds like it is a winner!
