Description
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 time travelling bank robber. Or that the man that walks into her store dressed like Blade is about to become her bodyguard.

Between being an unwitting owner of an android cat and falling for a cybernetic bounty hunter, Amber finds her life a whole new level of weird as science fiction becomes a very real factual threat.

Excerpt:
“The creature is dangerous.”

“What?” I nearly choked on the word. “She’s a cat. How the hell can a cat be dangerous?”

The man straightened and looked around. “Of itself? Not very, but I am not referring to merely the creature itself.” He pushed back his coat, revealing a belt that rode low on his hips. Pulling a gun from the holster, he held it up and looked at me. “I was actually referring to me.”

I stared at the gun. If it was a replica, it was a very, very good one. I licked dry lips and looked at him. “Look, if you want the cat, you can have it. There’s no need to get psychotic on me.” I motioned at my chair. “Seriously, what am I going to do? Run over your toes?”

Both eyebrows went up this time. “Then give me the cat and no further harm will come to you.”

“Further harm?”

“It is a wanted creature. I highly doubt that I am the only one looking for it.”

Was it me or was this day getting really weird? “Why?”
“As I said, it is dangerous.”

“Again, cat.” I shoved backwards from the counter and dug my cell phone out of a pocket. “And I’ve had quite enough of this.”

My intention was to dial someone to come and get him out of the store. However, the screen display warped and broke up, as if there was heavy interference close by. What the— What was wrong with the damn thing?

“I am afraid that I cannot let you contact anyone,” the man said, his tone regretful. “Please, I have no wish to do you harm but I must contain the cat. You have no idea how dangerous it truly is.”

Asshole. “Really? Care to enlighten me?”

“It is not the animal you believe it to be. It is...cybernetic.”

“An android cat?” I gave him a level look. “That’s the best you can come up with?”
“It’s the truth.”

Shaking my head, I looked back down at my phone. I’d no idea how he’d done...whatever it was he’d done, but it wasn’t working. I had a landline phone in my flat, but I doubted my ability to get to that before he did something with that gun I really didn’t want him to. I shot him a dirty look. “Okay, I’ll bite—why is an android cat hanging around a comic book store?”

“It is not supposed to be here. Its circuits must have become damaged.” He checked his gun again then shoved it back into his holster, much to my relief. “I believe that it was supposed to go to the building across the street.”

I glanced out the window. “The bank?”

“Indeed.”

“You’re going to tell me that my cat is planning to rob the bank?”
