Cougars and Jaguars and Other Such Beasts of Prey

cougars sleeping (640x427)The cougars are normally pacing, sometimes though, one will be up in the rocks. I’ve never seen them cuddled together so I thought this was a nice shot. 🙂  But the real question is, are they real cougars or shapeshifters?

Instinct told her to run…

Shannon Rafferty learns that hanging out with the bad boys could be a dangerous business, but hooking up with a cop is even worse. Now she’s on the run, trying to avoid being murdered by his cougar shifter brothers and uncle. If that isn’t bad enough, a deputy sheriff hunts her down while she’s running as a cougar and trying to survive in the Colorado wilderness. He vows to protect her no matter what she’s done. With three dead boyfriends to her name, she’s sure she will be the death of Chase Buchanan before either of them can prevent it. No matter how much she knows she has to run again, he soon holds her heart hostage. But will that be enough to keep them both alive?

Chase Buchanan—as wilderness cabin resort owner, former US Army Special Forces, and part time deputy of the small town of Yuma, Colorado that boasts a love of cougars—is tasked to track down a cougar reported to be hunting human prey. Chase soon learns she’s a shifter, not a full-time cougar, and she’s on the run. When he takes her in, he vows to protect her. After losing his wife and baby to the human kind of predator years earlier, he’s not letting Shannon’s hunters kill her, too. But how is he going to hold onto the wild-cat woman, who is unpredictable at every turn, without losing his heart to her, and then losing her as well?

I just approved the first 15 minutes of the narration on Cougar’s Mate, so that’s being made into an audiobook as we speak.

The audiobook for Forbidden Love was approved a LONG time ago, but when I checked on it last week, I received an email saying they’d dropped the ball and would expedite its release.

I caught one of the jaguars drinking, which turned out really nice. My friend was yelling for me to come over and get a shot and I was fortunate to get two before the male had his fill and moved off.

And I just approved Jaguar Hunt’s cover.

Jaguar Hunt-

Coming in June!

And here one of the tiger cubs was upset because his sibling was locked away inside. So lots of interesting happenings at the zoo. 🙂 I’m just lucky my friend doesn’t mind that I stop to take pictures all the time!

And that’s it. We’re off to see the arboretum later today so have to get some work done before that!

I’ve taken lots of pictures of the cats in the last couple of years, but these are really special. Why? They tell a story.

Have a super great April Fool’s Day! I’m absolutely not going to tell you I’m quitting!  I had too many fans worry that I was retiring from writing when I did that last year. LOL 🙂

I can’t. I have too many stories to tell!

Hope no one pulls your leg and gets away with it. Years ago, we put one of those floating plastic ice cubes in my dad’s glass of water and it had a fly inside it. Made it look like the fly was floating in his drink. 🙂 Poor dad.

Oh–have you heard about the one in Italy where someone got the public thinking that a spaghetti weevil was destroying the crops?

Have a fun day!
