Halloween Interruption: Four Blue Ribbons ~ MURDER BY HAIR SPRAY

Yep, where is that crescent moon, my spooky prowling Kittens... the Kougar wants to spring from Earth and jump over the moon in a great launching of her sleek body... because, finally, a good review for MURDER BY HAIR SPRAY IN GARDENIA, NEW ATLANTIS... meowsers! not just good, the reviewer, Katherine Petersen truly ‘gets’ the story and seems to enjoy it as this Big Cat author intended when she penned it.

Blue Ribbon Rating: 4

Review Snippet ~

“She handles the relationship between Kalypso and Zryphus deftly... Kougar uses her erotic scenes judiciously as well: they’re stimulating and exciting but don’t over shadow the plot. If you’re in the mood for a madcap adventure... then MURDER BY HAIR SPRAY IN NEW GARDENIA, NEW ATLANTIS will serve nicely. Kougar has created a nice balance of serious and comic in this tale, and I hope she writes a sequel soon.”

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 301 ~

Sylva moved into her dream-incredible dressing room, taking several moments to simply take it all in, and appreciate. Disrobing, she avoided the mirror, not wanting to see the tiredness on her face. “Vanity thy name is woman,” she murmured. Still, it was partly because it would only make her feel more exhausted. Sylva didn’t want that. There was far too much to enjoy in her current circumstances. Besides, she’d be a fool not to savor Zeke for every instant she could. After stretching again, she laid her new garments together. Soon she’d learn how to take care of them here.

Zeke listened to the rainstorm lash the windows as he made certain all was in order. With the threats they’d already encountered and the looming danger, a man had to be extra careful to protect his wife. Plus, he’d needed some time to cool his mounting ardor. God Above, he wanted his beautiful woman again. Her gaze had been pools of desire as she left him. Her sex scent still swirled around him, temptation itself. Once he removed his gunbelt and checked all the weapons, Zeke smiled, heading for his dressing area. Time for the gentle taking of his Sylva.
