Trumpeting Whinnies of Triumph

Yep, my most wonderful Big Kittens, excitement streaks down to the Kougar’s paws. She performed a short happy dance, or in her case, bounced up and down. STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME is being published by Siren-BookStrand with an e-pub date of November 2009 and a print date of April 2010.
This is moi’s very first story written only from the male POV. She so hopes readers will enjoy it.

Here’s the rough blurbie ~

Drojovv Zyan of the V’Trailuc Realm is a man-stallion of ash and flame on a mission to save his world’s crucial Earth portal from the fires ravaging the National Forest surrounding it. Pretending to be the tracker, Trail, he settles in a small southeastern Arizona town. When he gets an eyeful of the beautiful ranch owner, Seneca, he stud lusts after the Earth human, a woman he’s not supposed to take as his Mate.
Trail leaves her alone until her brother is in a bad motorcycle accident and she needs a hired hand. Soon both of them are threatened by a whole horde of enemies. At all costs Trail must protect her. His world depends on it, her world depends on it. And his heart comes to depend on it.
Yessiree, the Kougar hears the trumpeting whinnies of triumph from her hero, Trail. His love story with Seneca is about to be shared.
Now moi needs to ponder on how she wants her cover art. And, she may draw a stallion of flame... maybe...
Wait... what did the Kougar hear today as bumper music?
Willie Nelson singing ~
I’m gonna chase the sky forever... with the woman and the stallion and the wind... The sun is going to burn into a cinder...
Guess what, darling KitKats, the Kougar joined Gem Sivad, author of INTIMATE STANGERS, as a participant in the Dorchester/Textnovel contest, running from June 1 to November 1.
It’s kinda techno cool. Read on your fancy dancy cell phone or simply go to their website ~ ~
Gem is presenting her Old West shapeshifter story, CAT NIP, starring Misery, the healer, and her mystery hero, Mr. Jaguar.

Maoowww... This was just too adorable ~

Fox steals more than 100 shoes

BERLIN (Reuters) - A fox has been unmasked as the mystery thief of more than 100 shoes in the small western German town of Foehren, authorities said Friday.

A forest worker stumbled upon shoes strewn near the fox's den and found a trove of footwear down the hole which had recently been stolen overnight from outside locals' front doors.

"There was everything from ladies' shoes to trainers," said a local police spokesman. "We've found between 110 and 120 so far. It seems a vixen stole them for her cubs to play with."

Although many were missing laces, the shoes were in good condition and their owners were delighted to reclaim them, he said, adding that no reprisals were planned against the culprit.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues....

Part 172 ~

Sylva stirred once her cowboy lifted the sheets, joining her. Good lord, she loved the muscley lithe strength of his body spooning hers. With ease, he slid his arm beneath her, and snuggled her close, so her butt was cradled by his loins. “Dreamland,” he encouraged, his voice a purr. “I’m half there,” she whispered. “What was the message?” she remembered to ask, her mind mostly lost to the fog of slumber. “Nothing urgent, darling. We’ll talk about it later.” Sylva nodded, her weariness taking over. He nuzzled beneath her hair, pressing a kiss on the top of her head.

Zeke listened to her soft deep breaths. He thanked the Lord above she trusted him enough to fall asleep in his arms. His precious wife, his Sylva. Her fragrance was like a sweet cloud around him, a sultry and violet-delicate cloud. He touched another kiss to her hair, then let his eyes shut. Mentally, he rehearsed how he would protect them, precisely how he would reach for the derringer. It was rare these days for a direct break in, yet a man could never be too prepared. Relishing her lush perfect curves, he smiled and told his cock to ‘whoa’.
