Love doesn’t get any better than Westley and Buttercup from The Princess Bride. Somehow, in the midst of the humor (and, okay, sort of making fun of fairy tales), they still manage to get in a fantastic romance. Brilliant!
Let’s take a pause to appreciate everything Westley & Buttercup!
Yes. This is definitely a kissing book.
First the flirting and the staring (oh my, the staring). Has a better line been spoken by a man than “As You Wish…”? I think not.
She finally figures it out.
Then she THINKS he’s dead.
Kidnapping and enter the mysterious man in black to save her (gotta admit a man in a mask is pretty sexy). But she hates him because she thinks he killed her love (only we know who it really is.) Communication is key people.
Huzzah! It’s WESTLEY! Death can only delay love a little while…
More saving in the Fire Swamp. A man who will bleed for you is worth keeping.
But Buttercup tries to save him, because she can’t lose him again, even if she can’t be with him. Wait, he’s dead again? Only she doesn’t know it, besides, he’s only mostly dead.
A heroic rescue involving a commentary on perfect breasts (physical attraction is critical people). A man will do anything for his true love…
Finally, they ride off into the sunset after the best kiss ever (no seriously—THE BEST EVER).
Sigh. Swoon. And laugh at some of the best movie quotes ever while you watch a romance for the ages!
Data analyst Cassie Howard may be brilliant (and, okay, a little awkward), but she’s worked hard to get where she is. She definitely doesn’t need some sexy new analyst coming in and taking credit for her work. Or the inappropriate thoughts that keep popping out of her mouth she’d rather he not hear.
For undercover FBI agent Drew Kerrigan, computers have always made more sense than people, but he’d better develop some slick social skills in a hurry if he’s going to win over the too-tantalizing-for-his-sanity Cassie. Hacking their systems was easy. Now he’s just got to hack the one person in the company most likely to see through his ruse…

However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it.

She currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her own personal hero, her husband, and their two children, who are growing up way too fast. Kadie also writes award-winning paranormal romance as Abigail Owen.
