COUGAR’S MATE–99 cents for limited time!!! It’s going off sale by the weekend!

Cougars Mate FINAL 11292013 copy

Cougar’s Mate: 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?

Excerpt from Vexing the Highlander, Enchanting the Highlander Anthology

Copyrighted by Terry Spear

***

Later that afternoon, Alban and his brother went to the feast and found seats at one of the tables furthest from the head table. Alban was glad for that. Though he was still aware that anything he said, no matter where he was, could be misconstrued and shared with the king.

He kept watching the servants coming and going as they brought dishes to the table, though he was sure the redheaded lass wasn’t a kitchen servant.

“Are you looking for anyone in particular?” Ward sounded amused, like he thought Alban had become interested in a servant.

Which Alban had, but he wasn’t about to discuss it.

“Here you are more interested with the wait staff, when a lady truly seems to be intrigued with you.” Ward raised his brows as if to ask how in the world Alban had managed to captivate the attention of a lady at the king’s court when Alban had done no such thing.

At least that he was aware of. Maybe it was the lassie who had waved at them from the loch. He looked around, but didn’t see any woman openly watching him. “Which one? There are many, but no one who seems particularly aware I exist.”

“The lady over there. She is concentrating on her meal now, blushing to the heavens and back. The one with the pretty red hair.”

Alban turned quickly to see the woman, instantly wondering if it was the lass he’d run into, who had been carrying the pitcher of water that had drenched them both. It was she, only now she was wearing a dark blue gown, her hair half hidden beneath veils of silk. “A lady. Are you sure?” Yet the fact she was seated at one of the tables, not waiting on others, and was dressed so fine, ensured him his brother had to be correct. Alban was at once sorely disappointed, wanting nothing more than to see the woman again, but not if her family was titled. He couldn’t. He wasn’t worthy of her hand in marriage—not based on his position in society, anyway.

He let out his breath and said, “Figures.”

But worse, she lifted her gaze and saw him watching her and gave him a bewitching smile, to which Ward said, “Well, well. What have you been up to, little brother?”

And here Alban thought he’d been above reproach the few hours he’d been here so far.

****

Okay, got to “run” and write!

Have a great day. It’s foggy here! And beastly warm.

Call of the Cougar FINAL WEB

Call of the Cougar: Looking for love can be dangerous…

Special Agent for the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife Services, Tracey Whittington, takes down wildlife traffickers and more, but what she doesn’t expect is to be in a shootout, multiple times, when the business turns deadly. Nor does she suspect she’ll be working with Hal Haverton, who serves as a part-time deputy for Yuma Town, Colorado, and runs his own horse ranch. As long as he doesn’t stop her investigative work—she has been placed on administrative leave due to the last shootout—she’ll be just fine.

Hal Haverton has every intention of keeping the wild cat safe, even if it means helping her to solve the case when every time he turns around, she’s involved in another shootout. When her boss asks their good friend, the sheriff, to have one of his deputies serve as a bodyguard for the cougar shifter, Hal’s all for it. So is the other deputy, but Hal’s got this covered. Even if getting somewhere with the lady means having his gun ready at all times. There are definite perks to getting to know the Special Agent better—if they live long enough to do something about it.

My books are all stand alone titles, though they are in the same world in the various series,  but they can still be read “out of order” and make sense. 🙂 <3

Why write about cougar shifters? I was writing about wolves that live in the Americas, and jaguars, that are so mysterious and one of the big roaring cats. But I wanted to do one about big cats that live in the States also. The two species of cats have some similarities, but they’re vastly different also. In the parks in Costa Rica, they actually coexist–the jaguars taking down the larger prey, the cougar, the smaller. In many areas, the jaguars would eliminate cougars from their territory that could be eating their food source. So I thought that was interesting.

I’ve got two more books on deadline I have to write and I want to get this one, Taming the Wild Cougar, The Viking’s Highland Lass, and Golden Fae done this year. Tall order. 🙂

Okay, have to get back to work. Have a lovely weekend!! 🙂

Just finished proofing Jaguar Pride copyedits. I’ll have one more proof and that’s it!

JaguarPride_041714_B
Jaguar Pride (Book 4)

Coming Feb, 2015

Amazon

And I have student lessons stacking up again ( calculated it and if I don’t do any additional critiques, which I have already done, I’ll have a total of 204 critiques to do), and I need to make word count on A Silver Wolf Christmas. Getting 3,000 words done a day, and have been fortunate to keep making it. It’s easy to get stuck. Especially when you’re jumping from the snowy Christmas story with wolves to the jungles of Costa Rica and the jaguars. And I just submitted a proposal for 3 more books. So we shall see if my publisher wants any more! 🙂 <3

Titles will probably change, but: Jaguar Jingle Bells, A SEAL Wolf Diving for Trouble, and She-Wolf (another Silver wolf pack story) If they get picked out, they will be coming in 2016. I’m already “booked” for 2015 with releases in Feb: Jaguar Pride, April: SEAL Wolf for Sale, Oct: A Silver Wolf Christmas

And of course more Highland medievals and fae stories, and more. 🙂 <3

Oh, yes, and bears. Worked on 3 last night. Not finished, but getting closer….

Hope you are having a great Thursday!!

Night Owl Romance Review of Cougar’s Mate!

Loved the review for Cougar’s Mate!

Cougar's Mate

Buy Now

Cougar’s Mate

Heart of the Cougar, #1

Cougar Mate is the first book in a brand new and exciting paranormal series from author Terry Spear. As usual, she did an outstanding job with this book. I just can’t get enough of her shifter novels, and this one was no different. This time around the author explores the cougar shifter world, and she made it every bit as exciting as her wolves and jaguars. It was a great read that I enjoyed. Spear easily pulled me into the story with her wonderful characters and vivid descriptions. I had a hard time putting this one down.

 

 

 

Happy reading!!!

Cougars Mate FINAL 11292013 copy

I have to have a URL link for this cover to submit it to a magazine for a review. And guess what? The only ones I have showcased on my blogs and website is the 3-D one.

So, I think I have to publish this to have a URL.

And that’s why you get to see this beautiful cover for no other reason.

Back to my regularly scheduled writing. Trying to reach 48,000 today on Her Highland Hero.

Cougar’s Mate is up for a Vote! Jaguar Reviews!

I totally forgot about this. Cougar’s Mate is up for a vote if you have a moment and the inclination.

And I got these two great reviews for more big kitty cats!

Jaguar Fever is book two in the Heart of the Jaguar series by Terry Spear.

Connor and Kat have gone back to the jungle for a vacation. And Maya is supposed to follow one day later. Connor has left her alone for one night. So you would think she could stay out of trouble, right? Not Maya! She has discovered a bar that is frequented by shifters like herself. And she wants to meet other eligible male shifters. Also, she has been contacted by two long lost cousins so they are going to meet her there. But she didn’t anticipate the reaction she would get from the single male shifters when a new wild jaguar shifter enters the bar. And, she didn’t anticipate running into Wade Patterson.

 photo images2_zps1117caec.jpg

Wade and his brother David are going to the bar on a job. Little did he know that this would be the night Maya Anderson would walk back into his life. Its been five months since they got back from the Amazon jungle. They never really met but they knew each other’s scent. Wade had been under the impression that Maya was romantically involved with Connor, not that they were brother and sister. So once he realizes that Maya is single and available, he knows he wants her.

“I haven’t been in a good catfight in years.” Wade glanced in the rearview mirror at Maya. “But the prize this time was definitely worth fighting for.” Carol, Goodreads Addict

 

Savage Hunger is book one in the Heart of the Jaguar series by Terry Spear. What I love most about Terry Spear’s books is that they grab you right away and keep you invested until the very last page. And that is exactly how I feel about this book.

 photo tumblr_mals5gi18f1r93y4eo1_500_zps3761df74.gif

Imagine being a Jaguar shifter but not being able to find any others like you. Of there being no hope in sight of finding a mate, someone to share life with, have children with. This is the life Conner Anderson and his sister, Maya have been given. Abandoned by their parents long ago, they are all each other has. They stay under the radar, owning a large gardening business in Texas. But twice a year, they vacation to the Amazon to let their jaguars run free. And this is exactly what they were doing one year ago when Conner first encountered Katherine McKnight.

“He told himself it was fate that had made them cross paths, providence that had brought them together again.”

These three have quite an adventure, both dangerous and comical at times. I love that Terry Spear’s books have everything, humor, sweet romance, and plenty of gripping suspense. I plan to go directly into the next book to see what comes next.

Carol, Goodreads Addict

AND!!! For Jaguar Hunt, releasing Jun 4:

RT Book Reviews: 4 1/2 star review! – http://www.rtbookreviews.com/book-review/jaguar-hunt
– “This ferocious feline novel is a passionate love story gently woven into an action-packed plot that will steal readers’ breaths away.”

Don’t you love it???

I’m back to working on going over the audiobook narration for Scepter of Salvation. 🙂

Have a super great day!

Garden Structures & Review of Cougar’s Mate

arbor1 (458x640)

Even though I love nature for nature’s sake, sometimes something like this simply made garden structure is really appealing. The little brick wall and stone patio add to it. And I loved the old fashioned lantern right in the center of the arbor.

It made me want to stop and enjoy it as much as I would stop to enjoy taking pictures of the flowers.

What about you?

Okay, I had to share a great new review also for Cougar’s Mate:

From Debbie’s Book Bag

Thoughts:

Bestselling Author Terry Spear takes readers on a new adventure with the first book in a new shifter series, Heart of the Cougar. This time cougar’s that take center stage, as Spear builds her new series around another powerful, intelligent animal. Cougar’s Mate introduces readers to the town of Yuma, Colorado, ran by cougar shifters and open to helping heroine Shannon Rafferty who is on the run from those who want her dead. Deputy Chase Buchanan doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into, but he knows he has to protect this woman, this she-cat who has stolen his heart.  

What I liked:

I am a Terry Spear fan from way back. And hearing that she had a new series out about another group of shifters was tantamount to Christmas for me. Spear has a way of writing that not only pulls the reader in, but it also keeps them interested and not just through one particular novel, but through everything they can possibly find that she’s written. She has an easy word flow and style that makes her writing accessible and engaging. Her characters are always intense and well developed and her world building is beyond phenomenal and I was so excited to see where she would go with her new cougar shifters. I was certainly not disappointed. Yuma is quite a town!

 

Bottom Line:

This is an exceptional paranormal romance. Terry Spear never disappoints. She creates characters that readers can relate to, whether they are paranormal or not. Her world building is a real strength in her writing, as is her easy style and humor. If you are looking for an engaging love story that just happens to involve cougar shifters, this one is one to read.

Cougar’s Mate is available NOW from your favorite bookseller.

I’m giving this one 5 out of 5 apples from my book bag!

 

Okay, now with a review like that, why wouldn’t I love to write? Thanks so much to Deb and others like her who have shared how much they love my works!
