New single doctor in town, Keith Hoyer, gets plenty of interest, but is it for himself, the M.D.after his name, or what they think is in his wallet? The patients, of course, are strictly off limits. Each night he goes home to his big, gray tabby cat, Harpo, and unfulfilled dreams.

Then he opens the door to his exam room to find hunky veterinarian Dante James, with whom he’d

The pulse quickens and you can't speak, butterflies flit around in your insides and you can't breathe or form coherent thoughts. Ah, the power of that first, initial attraction.

That's what Dr. Keith feels for hunky veterinarian Dante, but he lacks the confidence to do anything about it. It's up to Keith's "owner", a tabby named Harpo, to bring these two together. Hot men and cute critters. Who could ask for more? P.D. Singer just gets better and better with each new story. I'd love to see more

Cute short about a vet and a doctor meeting first in one of their offices and then in the others.

This is only a short story but it’s very nice and romantic, and how could be anything else, when we are speaking of hot doctors and their furry friends, little matchmaker kitties?

At first Dr. Dante James, vet, goes to Dr. Keith Hoyer, m.d., with a health problem, but the problem is minimal and soon forgotten, and instead Dr. Keith is more interesting in knowing more of the handsome African American vet than his health status. Only that the chance doesn’t come, and so Keith manages to have it; w
A short and fun read. And I agree with Keith in that one of the most important things in a prospective boyfriend would be that he likes cats. And that they like him. That's pretty much how I got my man a couple decades ago.

A sweet get-together between doctor and veterinarian, with featured character Harpo the cat. Busy schedules and sometimes a little bit too much thinking from Keith make this an enjoyable story. Dante's suspicion and reserve made him more than just a pretty ass face. The ending was a wonderful "aahh" moment as they got past the doubts and suspicion to connect.

Cute and just perfect if you love cats, Harpo was a delight and a true gem throughout. Keith and Dante weren't bad either, a love fest of all kinds.

A nice short story about a doctor and a vet who need each other's help and end up wanting more.

Description: When Keith, the new single doctor in town, meets sexy black veterinarian, Dante, he’s way too shy to make a first move. Can his cat, Harpo, bring them together?

The Good: I adore vets in real life and wish they’d be used more in romance. Ms. Singer does a good job of making Dante vulnerable (he’s literally got cat scratch fever), while keeping him attractive in the opening scenes. The romantic build up to sex is sweet and awkward, and the couple is very well-matched. Also, the cat at

This is two short stories in one book. Dante and Keith both have a cat and a career in the medical field. When Dante come to the examination room at the hospital, Keith tries to act professionally and treat the patient rather than act on his attraction. Dante returns the favor when Keith's cat, Harpo, gets injured. They decide to give their relationship a try and their first challenge as a coup

Jen did a great review of this which pretty much mirrors my thoughts exactly. It also made me smile when at the end Keith is outlining some of the reasons he thinks he and Dante get along and he is really nervous about the last one. When he finally blurts it out I think I literally snorted out loud. Cute and funny and sweet.

If you don't like cats you better stay away from this story, I like cats (I don't love them), after I read this story I was sick of reading so much about them.
If it wasn't for the black american character I would had give it 1 star.
in one word...Boring.

PD Singer lives in Colorado with her slightly bemused husband, two rowdy teenage boys, and thirty pounds of cats. She's a big believer in research, first-hand if possible, so the reader can be quite certain PD has skied down a mountain face-first, been stepped on by rodeo horses, acquired a potato burn or two, and will never, ever, write a novel that includes sky-diving.
