It’s raining on the tame prairie this evening, my Big Beautiful Cats. So far, slow and gentle, after the initial whip of wind and rain. So good for the Kougar, since it makes it easier to keep her tiny jungle-like garden watered. Moi planted a wee bit too closely... course, she was lucky to get anything planted at all. The result, peering through the thick layers of foliage.
Tuesday, the Kougar is blogging at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS ~ yep, the bull has two more *naughty* flashies... and moi briefly discusses the meaning behind the upcoming Solar Eclipse, July 21-22.

Just for the cowboy lovin’ big cats ~ a sneaky peekie X-snippet from BRANDED BY THE TEXANS...

Easing her back from his body, Dono stroked his hands from her butt toward her begging mound. At the same time, Dash plunged his cock deep and bucked his hips forward. With his steam-hot balls between her thighs, Dash caressed his palms from her shoulders and trapped her butt cheeks with his hands, larger than Dono’s.
“You’re gonna give it to me, aren’t you, little wild thing?” Dash’s words were as rough as sandpaper and nearly as harsh as his breathing.
Shit, they both turned her on like no one and nothing else, except Dillon

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 205 ~

Sylva decided the safest item, so far, was bath gel... so it was labeled. Opening the rounded jar, beautifully colored by graduated rings from royal purple to a sunset fiery pink, she sniffed. The delicate fragrance held notes of rose and ginger, plus other floral scents she didn’t recognize. Setting the jar down, she dipped her fingertip in, then rubbed it on her arm. A surprising amount of lather bubbled up. “Cool,” she whispered. Hoping it was an all-body wash she carefully applied small amounts, bathing herself. So relaxed she could hardly stand it, Sylva floated and wondered about Zeke.

Zeke pocketed the messager after sending inquiries to everyone he could think of, for any info on what Ranson was up to. In the meantime, he had a wife and a honeymoon waiting. And sundown wasn’t that far off. After tapping his knuckles on the door frame, Zeke strolled toward his languidly floating bride, who emerged from the water, then reclined like a goddess beauty holding court. “Not ‘that’ jar.” he teased. “Why? What’s wrong with it?” Her genuine worry made him regret his words. “Only that it will make you that more fetching to your husband. Plundering you becomes irresistible.”

Hi Suzanne, thanks so much for being here today.
Humphrey Bogart and James Dean, so cool. I would never have thought of blending those two.
Maltese Falcon and Rebel Without a Cause, two of my old fave movies.
I'm naughtily curious. Since both of them are smoking, does your hero smoke?

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #46

For the following week be not deceived. Like a planet-wide game with The Trickster in charge, deception rules on the world stage and off the world stage. If there are decisions you can put off, do it. If there are decisions which must be made follow your gut instinct or your gut hunch, and ask the Divine for assistance.
Be especially wary of those you do not know personally, yet seem almost too friendly. Also, be careful of those extra good deals, which may not turn out so incredibly wonderful.
This is a week to enjoy the home front, if you can. It is also a week to send your blessings to any and all in need. For, with the solar eclipse on the 22nd of July, there may be some natural catastrophes and/or other huge sad events.

Angelic blessings from Volcano & Sedona

Lindsay scored a lovely cover!

~puurrr~ That was one sexy, sneaky peek of those hot Texans!

Aaah the rain, we are getting our share here today and it is quite a lovely sight...we needed some in the worst way!

Gem Sivad said...

Sylva doesn't need any more aphrodisiacs. Zeke, himself, is the biggest turn on a woman could find.

Another great installment.
