Call of the Cougar starts at this time of the year and the heroine is sitting at home getting ready to watch 3:10 to Yuma and enjoy fajitas…alone. She has no plans for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, when she gets THE CALL about a possible wildlife trafficking case that she needs to investigate.
Crime doesn’t stop for a holiday, after all. And she has nothing better to do than look into it–in case there’s something to it. She’s alone, she has nothing better to do, and she’s a workaholic. So despite it being snowy out and a really good day to stay home, she’s off to search a ghost town for evidence of wrongdoing.
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.

I think this is my only book, of maybe 60 books I have out?–I lose count–that is set during the New Year and what a disaster it brings.
We all hope for the best for the upcoming New Year, hopefully celebrate the passing of a year that had its ups and downs, and wish everyone the best the New Year can bring to them.
So on this New Year’s Eve, I want to wish you all the best!
I’ve been reading up on puppy anxiety, and who would ever have thought Tanner, the 9 week old would have puppy anxiety when he’s with Max. Max doesn’t have it. But then he’s 5 1/2 months old and so maybe when Tanner’s not so little, he’ll realize I will be with him when I can. I had a pen fence blocking the part of the family room that they’re in so that I could take down the Christmas decorations without them being underfoot, plus Tanner kept trying to chew on the tree branches. He could watch me and was barking his head off. *sigh*
But last night when I went to crate them, it was the cutest thing. I’ve been giving them a treat, and when I told them bedtime, Max actually went inside and sat. Sometimes I think I’m getting a handle on this alpha business and sometimes I think I’m failing miserably. But I’ve only had Tanner home a week, and Max, 2, and so we’re really doing great.
But back to the scheduled New Year’s. I don’t normally make New Year’s resolutions. I have so many book goals and such, that I just live from book to book. Of course, I’ll continue to work on the puppy’s housebreaking, mainly Tanner as Max has it down and is telling me he has to go out. But that’s just another necessary goal.
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions???
And keep them?
My goal was to have Phantom Fae done by Dec. Well, it’s finished, but I haven’t finished editing it. *sigh* I need to format Kissing the Highlander for release soon and get to work on my next wolf book. I really don’t have time for New Year’s resolutions, just deadlines. 🙂 <3
Are you planning anything special for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day? I used to always go to a movie. It was our special thing to do on New Year’s Day.
Happy New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day! May yours be extra special. 🙂
