From the USA Today Best Selling Author of ‘Truth or Beard’
What do a cynical former Marine and a sheltered former Olympic contender have in common?
Absolutely nothing.
He has a girlfriend and she’s never been kissed.
He’s sullenly sarcastic and she’s earnestly empathetic.
He can’t stop thinking about her.
She knows she should keep her distance.
Nevertheless, when opposites attract the results may be unexpected, but they’re also undeniably magnetic.

‘Ninja at First Sight’ is a standalone, prequel novella (for book 5 of the Knitting in the City Series, ‘Happily Ever Ninja’) and is 40k words.
This novella is the expanded origin story for Greg and Fiona. The first 16k words of this novella are from the short scenes included in 'Scenes from the City', which is no longer for sale.

Dear Penny Reid,

We need to have a “Come to Jesus” talk. Don’t EVER make me fall in love with characters, get me fully engaged in their story, and then end a book abruptly—with a freaking cliffhanger no less—WHEN MY KINDLE SAYS I’M ONLY 85% INTO THE BOOK!! (Yes, shouty capitals and exclamation points are necessary.) You filled up the last 15% with author’s notes, a list of other books you’ve written, and a sneak peek of the first chapter of Happily Ever Ninja! I don’t want a taste of the next book; I want the whole enchilada! If you do it again, I swear I’m never reading another book of yours. Oh who am I kidding? I love your flawless writing style, your intelligent underdog heroines, your humor, your yummy heroes, as well as your smart and witty banter. I’m addicted to your books, so I can’t possibly stay away.

Yes, I know Ninja at First Sight is only the prequel to Happily Ever Ninja, and thank the good lord the rest of Fiona and Greg’s story will be available soon. Still, a little heads up that I’m about to reach the end of the book would be much appreciated. Mmm-kay?

Yours truly,
