Cursed by an impatient witch to turn into a tortoise at inopportune moments, Tip is horrified to find himself tortoise-napped by a customer at the cafe where he works.
Things start to look up when Tip ends up very literally in the capable hands of drop-dead gorgeous Steve—but Tip soon begins to wonder just how far he can trust Steve, who turns out to have a close connection with his kidnapper. Tip’s attempts at a normal life seem doomed to remain frustrated in more ways than one!
Inspired by a real-life incident. Yes, really.

Reviews for the first edition:
delightfully whimsical… The flawless writing and light, satiric tone keep the reader flying through the story, chuckling at the endearingly sweet-natured hero’s mishaps – a Recommended Read by Val Kovalin in Wildfire.
Long on humor, perfect on romance, this short story is a lovely pick-me-up for a sour mood. If Steve and Tip get further adventures, I want to be first in line. 5 marbles – Cryselle’s Craziness
short, sweet, incredibly witty, and laugh out loud funny in parts…The characters are filled with a sense of humor on their own and you can’t help but identify with the cast. They’re just adorable and wonderfully depicted. – Kassa, on Three am.
