Welcome Back Guest Spotlight Author Cynthia Arsuaga

This week I am on cloud nine. Cynthia Arsuaga is back with her new release, My Life as a Dog, and I can't tell you how much fun I've had with this particular story. 
The title alone gives me a chuckle... and the plot? Oh my goodness, this story is guaranteed entertainment. 
As a pet owner, I find myself allowing my imagination to run wild with the idea of my domesticated four legged diva, otherwise known as Maxie the Mutt, shape-shifting into human form... and Lord help me if she does. I will be in world of trouble because my dog is a mess. 
Lucky for the characters in this tale, they are on the sexier side of shape-shifting, even if the hero weighs less than ten pounds on a good day. 
Here's a peek at... MY LIFE AS A DOG!!

Drake Martin—private investigator, ladies’ man, shape-shifter—Yorkshire terrier, named Precious. Enter six-year-old Kady Hartley and life changes. Years later, they meet again. Still a PI, she's FBI. Follow them on an adventure tracking the Russian mob involving human trafficking through the streets of New Orleans and watch the fur fly.
Following Kady to New Orleans where she is on assignment he knows it will be easier to watch over her if he stays in the shadows, keeping his shifter abilities hidden. He hooks up with the local Sufi, head of the shifter family clan, but eventually engages in a bloody battle with the Russians. But, there is another enemy in their midst, one who won't rest until he destroys their chance at everlasting love...
Drake has fallen in love. Can Kady love him for who he really is, or will she leave him upon discovering the truth?
Oh boy!
    See what I mean? Pure Entertainment and not exactly what you were expecting, right? What a treat!
   Just in case you missed Cynthia's last visit, here's a little more about the feminine half of this dynamic writing duo...
    Cynthia resides in Orlando, Florida, the land of magic, surrounded by the treasured gems in her life, a caring, loving husband, dutiful and loyal daughter, and precious, delightful granddaughter. Oh and not to forget her mischievous Yorkshire Terrier, Thumper.
    Cynthia was a “Navy Brat” calling a different port home every couple of years—from Southern California, to Boston, to Virginia, to Florida. She developed wandering feet and diverse interests and passionately incorporates those experiences into her stories, bringing characters to life, and eloquently sharing the vivid images of her mind with her audience.
    Cynthia worked as a real estate broker for over twenty years before retiring to Florida. Until recently, then she turned to writing to stretch her creative muscle. Those ideas of faraway places and quirky characters lay dormant for years and finally demanded their story be told.
    Cynthia plans on putting some mileage on those wandering feet and travel to exotic locations in the coming years. So look for the journeys to be expressed in Romantic Words by Cynthia in the future.
     Stick around this week because not only will we be taking a look at some hot excerpts, we will hopefully get to know the MAN in this equation. If only I can get him away from Cynthia long enough to come out and play. 
    If by chance, Mike's too shy, don't worry because I know for a fact that the characters from "My Life as a Dog" and Cynthia will be able to coax him out for an interview on Wednesday!! This foursome is guaranteed to be a ton of fun!!!
