Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr... THE CHALLENGE

Meowwww... my darling-est KitKats, Monday is the Day!!! Get your clicking claws ready for Serena Shay’s THE CHALLENGE, available at Liquid Silver Books.
Also, Serena is blogging at
HAPPILY EVER AFTER on Monday... come on by for her post ~ What Almost Killed My Happily Ever After?


Marina Jamison is a mystery. As a half-breed shapeshifter, she lives on the fringe of were-jaguar society. Though her love for pride leader Bastian LaRue is forbidden, she finds herself tied to him by a bond stronger than their individual wills, a psychic link born from their one-night stand. When her secret is revealed, she is scorned and excluded. Neither Bastian nor the pride can accept a half-breed queen.

*WILD* was the flash fiction theme at the Liquid Silver SEx blog on Sunday, where Lisa Andel, incredible author that she is, was the host.

Flash of Wild Adventure ~ the Kougar’s flashie ~

Kwynn twisted on top of the desert-baked boulder just as the saber-tooth tiger leapt from the red mountain’s ledge, only fifty feet above her. Twisting toward her in mid-air, the giant cat’s fangs flashed in the bright sunlight and the beast screamed for dinner. Kwynn thanked her lucky stars she was small enough to roll over the side of the boulder, down into the small crevice. Only it wasn’t a crevice, it was the opening to a cave. Arms, roped with dark brown muscle, hauled her backwards against a tall male body that could only be described as beautifully savage.

“What are you doing here?” Zandarr demanded, keeping his hold tight.
“The same as you, you incorrigible reptile-brained idiot. Enjoying a time travel excursion for the sake of my muse and my adventure-loving subscribers.”
The woman drove him into being a reptile-brained idiot. Only Kwinn owned that power. Not only was she a worthy rival, writing and recording for a competing holo-magazine, she could irately scold him while he squeezed her solar plexus. Damn! If she didn’t feel like utter female heaven against him, as she always had, ever since they’d clung to each other in the raging Amazon river.


Those typhoons are raging this year. A million people displaced in China... wow, who can wrap their mind around that one? Blessings to everyone affected!!!

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 225 ~

Sylva admired her own reflection, even though the suede vest and scarf-like flared skirt wasn’t laced up yet. Still, the peasant-style blouse was one of those luscious shades of cream, richly tinted with a warm golden color. “Annie Oakley I’m not, but I do look cowgirl sexy... one style of cowgirl,” she amended, thinking of tight jeans and a tighter top or the elaborate square dancing costumes. Not that she was any cowgirl fashion expert. Far from it. Deciding to give Zeke more time, Sylva sat on the ottoman slipping on the moccasins, which fortunately, were a pretty good fit.

Zeke stepped out of the shower, moving into the ion unit for drying and another cleansing, a precaution against being ambushed. Ranson had one heck of a snozzola. He’d always been able to scent an arriving woman before anyone else, like a hungry wolf. Plus, he could be using any number of tech devices that ‘sniffed’ out an approaching individual. Having hung his suit in the ion unit, Zeke grabbed it off the hanger, heading for his dressing area. The urge to check on his Sylva felt like a stake through his middle. Instead, he concentrated on dressing to kill.
Part 1 - 15 ~ see blog ~ January 15th Cometh, then Part 15... and before...

Monday ~ Serena Shay guest blogs ~ What Almost Killed My Happily Ever After?
Coming soon!
The ROOM theme is on HEA and is anything about rooms - your own inner space and psyche, the rooms you inhabit in your imagination, a room that holds a pivotal place in one of your novels, the room where you write, a room where something romantic happened to you or yours or one of your characters. Your own favourite room. Whatever you fancy. It could be a perfect room that you devise and share with us.
Whatever you fancy!
Cheers, Lindsay

Friday ~ Danielle Thorne ~ My hero! Why imperfect is perfect
Most people don’t enjoy blemishes. We throw away moldy bread, agonize over pimples, and rub those little smears on the mirror. Why then, do we prefer our heroes with a few defects?
Moi’s comment mew-sings ~
Turtle Soup is a fab title and I love your premise...
Love conquers all imperfections... so it is... here's to your beautiful post.
Thursday ~ My kind of hero... by Judah Raine ~ “I suppose, when it really comes down to it, I’m a pretty independent girl.” Another fabulous blog by Judah!
Wednesday ~ Sarah Simas: Hero Worship
Sara, fantastic bloggie! I first fell for Robinhood watching that 1937 black and white film. No one has the unique dash of Errol Flynn. Course, I wondered why Maid Marion wasn't riding with him... actually, she does in a lot of stories.
We are exceptionally lucky to 'create the men of our dreams over and over' ~ You are so right. Beautifully spoken.
I HERO ~ Adrian Paul in his role as the Highlander, especially.
However, there have been many, many romance novel heroes who did it for me. Johanna Lindsey's heroes included.
Note: I thought it was Clark Gable who starred in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT.
Cary Grant is ultra sexy in TO CATCH A THIEF

I hope Ranson is an okay guy who's settled Zeke. Killing during his honeymoon will not be a good start to his marriage.

~huge kitteny hugs, Lady Kougar!~
Thanks for the awesome shout out, Savanna!

Another faboo flash! I bet they had one heck of a ride down the Amazon! ;)

Savanna Kougar said...

Gem ~ no, it wouldn't be auspicious, for sure.

Serena ~ you're welcome. I hope you had a HAPPY RELEASE DAY!

My mind image is the two of them clinging and not sparring since their very lives were at stake, not to mention the pirannas...
