A year after the accident that put her in a wheelchair, Amber Gerald has more or less gotten used to living with her impairment. It doesn’t make a difference to running a comic book store anyway, and the customers have been the best support group she could have wished for.

When she rescues an abandoned cat, Amber has no idea that she’s interfering in the mad scheme of a tim

Android cats and comic book shops, oh yea! These are a few of my favorite things… and they’re just a few of the cool elements in Tin Cat.

This story actually surprised me. I guess when I saw the story’s geektastic backdrop I was expecting more camp, but this is actually a really touching romance. The themes in the story are familiar and fresh at the same time. The suspense and romance elements are nicely woven together and balanced in the story. Really, all the elements from the comic book shop t

Misa pens "Tin Cat", paranormal romance novella, in a unique and different plot. Her characters are strong and believable while the romance heats up the pages. I couldn't put the book down until I was finished...I loved it. Highly recommended for all paranormal romance readers with a touch of erotic thrown in.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.

The author had me at "android cat". Not "android's cat" although Star Trek TNG did that one very, very well, but "android cat". Being a cat, it's no more, or less, obedient than the purely flesh and blood kind. But that's not the end of the story.

Amber Gerald's adoption of "Cat" brings a whole new level of weird into her life. And considering that Amber owns a comic book store, weird is pretty much her stock-in-trade.

Her adoption of the stray cat brings a

Tin Cat by Misa Buckley is a fun paranormal romance novella. I blazed through it and enjoyed every minute. The heroine, Amber, is snarky and brave. I loved that she was an unabashed geek with her own comic book shop to boot!

The fact that she is in a wheel chair is a recent adjustment for her. She has learned to be independent and cope but she doesn’t think guys still see her… just the chair. Her boyfriend before th

3.5 stars. A pleasant story with an extremely likable heroine, Tin Cat is primarily let down by its novella length. Too much of the initial world-building felt like telling rather than showing (particularly with regard to the comic book store and Amber's place within the community she'd built). Amber's believability and strength, however, managed to shine through. Definitely worth picking up for those seeking a SFR novella with compelling leads and snappy dialogue.

I love Misa's books for her ability to cram a full strength romance into a novella package, and this book was no exception. The characters were well developed, their romance was steamy, and the ending was perfect.

Wasn't a terrible book but wasn't riveting either. It's something I would read on the airplane and let my seat mate permanently borrow if they asked.

When Amber Gerald is suddenly forced to spend her life in a wheelchair, she believes that no man would ever want her again, much less be able to love her. Believing she has very little to offer the world beyond the confines of her small comic book store and its patrons, her life has become an exercise in bitter seclusion. Enter a stray cat who is soon followed by an incredibly handsome man and a man with evil intentions, none of whom are what they ap

For starters, I chose this book to read because I just love stuff about time-traveling and sci-fi and also some romance. ;) Dystopian. You know. ;) So since this book kind of fits it all, I decided it was a good book to read! ;)

This book was cat a quite entertaining read about a girl who suffered many things throughout her life and now she was in a wheelchair. There was also a cat in the story which seemed like such a nice, little kitty, but it turns out the cat is also robotic. Can you make robots soft

Loved it! My first thought when I saw the title was K-9 in Doctor Who. So, I started out with a pleasant feeling about this story.

I wasn't disappointed at all. It's well-written, not a typo in sight and they usually jump out at me. It's fast, funny, FUN and different. Loved the characters, human and feline. Amber's diability was handled with taste and humanity.

The dialogue was excellent. Amber's life felt real. The romance was realistic and sweet. The villan was even well-rounded.

Altogether thi

Looking for something different? A wheelchair-bound heroine who owns a comic book store, a time-traveling hero, and an android cat. Doesn't get much different than that. I really enjoyed this. He is sweet, though he comes across as a lunatic when he first shows up. She is feisty and tough, even though she is in a wheelchair. This is quick, fun and well worth the read. Don't judge the book by the cover. It makes much more sense after reading.

Tin Cat was one of the winner in this years SFR Galaxy Awards. I read the description and immediately purchased and read. It is a cute story that has an unusual main character. She is in a wheelchair and the man in the story does not let that bother him. A nice romance with a lot of danger thrown in.
