It’s release day again. This time it’s Cat and Mouse, so trot over to Ellora’s Cave and grab your copy of the latest Middlemarch Mates saga. This is book five.
Cat and Mouse refers to an English-language idiom dating back to 1675. It means “a contrived action involving constant pursuit, near captures, and repeated escapes.” The “cat” is unable to secure a definitive victory over the “mouse”, who despite not being able to defeat the cat, is himself too nimble to be caught. In extreme cases, the idiom may imply that the contest is never-ending.
In colloquial usage it has often been generalized (or corrupted) to mean simply that the advantage constantly shifts between the contestants, leading to an impasse or de facto stalemate. ~ from Wikipedia.
In my book Cat and Mouse it refers to the stealthy chase Duncan uses to capture Lana, the woman he’s always loved. If you’d like to read an excerpt follow this link.
