In Print ~ HER INSATIABLE DARK HEROES

Oh, my lovely KitKats, guess what the Kougar received in her e-mailbox today... yeppers and smiling purrs, the above print cover for HER INSATIABLE DARK HEROES... soon to be released IN PRINT! Oh, meow-yes, it’s happy twitching tail time. Oopsie, the print cover wouldn't load... darn and roars.
And, yesterday, Pat Cunningham, author of COYOTE MOON, e-sent moi a fabulous dry-humor, highly imaginative blog for SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS ~ which the Kougar will post on Thursday, October 1 ~ titled: Interview with the Werecoyote. You shapeshifter lovers have to give this one a read.
~~~~~~

Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougaress has it on good authority that Lindsay Townsend’s FLAVIA’S SECRET received 4 Stars from Romantic Times magazine in the November issue. Moi doesn’t have her magazine yet... but when she does, or sooner, yep, more details to follow.

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

Part 277 ~

Sylva swallowed as everyone’s gaze fell on her. “Why is that, darlin’?” Zeke asked. Taking a breath, Sylva plunged ahead. “The government would take a dim view of people being in contact with another world. The hidden black-ops agencies are dangerous and powerful and possess secret technologies that are mind boggling. They could be a danger to your world. Though, if you just met individual women, say, at a bar or, I guess, saloon here, and kept a low profile, that might work.” Ranson gave a thoughtful nod. “In and out like men of mystery. We couldn’t be greedy, neither.”

Zeke rubbed his chin, musing deeply. “It would be a complex operation, even if we could portal to my Sylva’s world. Besides, we got our bad guys here. Certainly don’t want them crossin’ over.” Marina leaned forward. “It could turn into a war between parallel worlds.” Grant steadied his gaze on Zeke. “It’d have to be a private operation like a pleasure ranch with just a few men chosen to go through the doorway.” Ranson scraped his chair forward. “Men who can keep what happened their private business and just say their wives arrived here like Zeke’s beautiful bride did.”

WHERE ARE THOSE DARN WEREWOLVES?

Yippee, skippee, Kittens, Mercury in retrograde is over today. And, the lovely lyrical Luna, the Moon, is joining with giant, gregarious and generous Jupiter in the heavens ~ astronomically, that is. Not only that, their celestial rendezvous takes place in a time when Luna is aligned with the heart of the Milky Way galaxy.
To this Big Cat, that means there’s a huge potential for all things loving and good to come about in enhanced ways. It’s also a time when generosity of spirit toward those we care about can be expressed in new and deeper ways.
On the other paw, the dark forces have gathered and are currently gaining in strength. Every act of love, of true caring... and every generous thought counters this darkness lessening its ferocious power.

~~~~~~

Where are those darn werewolves? You can find some fascinating, true life accounts at the From the Shadows blog ~ http://from-the-shadows.blogspot.com/2009/09/encounters-with-werewolves.html ~
If any of you Big Cats has read Linda’s Godfrey’s BEAST OF BRAY ROAD and followed her reports on the dog-man and other cryptids like Big Foot, you’ll enjoy this Missouri’s reporter’s blog.
Since the Kougaress prefers to use real accounts as part of her stories, she appreciated the fascinating and Halloween-spooky eye witness tales.
And, yep and moon howls, as some of you may know moi has a couple of wolf shifter WIPs.

Authoress news and mews ~

Meow, the next chapter of CURSES will be up on Wednesday, September 30th.

Dorchester/Textnovel contest ~

CURSES WERE STRANGE BEASTS
~ Chronicles of an Earth-bound Goddess ~


CHAPTER SIXTEEN ~ “Murder,” She Murmured.

Dalton knew in a split second the woman he’d waited a lifetime to find wasn’t playing him. Her face had become white as chalk and drawn. As good as she’d been at leading him down several strange rabbit trails, now, real pain owned her voice.
“Let’s try my office.” Gripping her small elbow, he carefully walked her toward an out of the way room. It was his private office only because no one else wanted to work there, in the midst of the boxed files from the pre-computer days. “What’s wrong?”
“How do you work here?” She halted, rubbing her temples.

On Wednesday, the 30th, the Kougar will also be blogging at the Liquid Silver SEx blog. Right now, she plans on a short comment about e-reading, using CURSES WERE STRANGE BEASTS and Textnovel as an example of how the future of reading has evolved.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 276 ~

Sylva closely observed Ranson, wondering if he’d been in love with Candace. Her cowboy gave a nod of remembrance. “You two had good times. But, she wasn’t your match. These days, though, finding the right woman can be like ropin’ the wind.” Sylva watched Ranson’s eyes fill with shadows. “Yep, I’m still lookin’.” His gaze fell on her after he spoke. “On my Earth there’d be plenty of women who would jump at the chance to get to know you, or apply to be your bride.” An instant later, the thought struck Sylva. “Too bad there’s no permanent dimensional doorway.”

Zeke smiled, appreciating his Sylva’s compassionate heart. “Now, that’s a worthwhile scientific project, wouldn’t you say, sis, Grant?” Marina tossed her dark curls and grinned. “I dunno. I like being special.” Grant hugged her shoulders affectionately as he was in the habit of doing often. “You’re special enough for me. That outta be enough, woman.” Turning toward her husband, Marina stroked over his bolero, then twirled it around her fingers sensuously. “Any woman comes after you won’t care for my shootin’ skills,” she sexily bantered. “If there was a doorway,” Sylva began, “You’d have to go incognito or risk capture.”

Almost Banned

Good lovely evening, my autumn-golden KitKats, this is officially Banned Book Week, or books that were and are being challenged, including, to the Kougar’s astonishment, The Holy Bible and the Grapes of Wrath.
One may wonder how a society may remain free, truly free, if books are banned. When did our basic intellect as human beings become so poor in its functioning that we require someone else, some other group or agency, to determine what we are allowed to read and what we’re not.
Gee, someday, reading itself could be outlawed, if one takes this scenario to an extreme. Remember, often, in many culture, slaves were not allowed to read and learn as a means to keep them enslaved. Women, at many points in history, were considered not capable of higher learning. Yeah, right, we all know that’s true, right? *Insert a long sarcastic wave of the Kougar’s tail here*
Monday at
SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS, Ellora’s Cave author and librarian, Francesca Hawley, penned an excellent blog about Banned Book Week.
Tuesday, the Kougar will follow up with her thoughts and another installment of her Serial Flash Fiction ~ New Bull in Town.

The following quote from Kurt Vonnegut was brought to moi’s attention by Francesca ~

"All these people talk so eloquently about getting back to good old-fashioned values. Well, as an old poop I can remember back to when we had those old-fashioned values, and I say let's get back to the good old-fashioned First Amendment of the good old-fashioned Constitution of the United States and to hell with the censors! Give me knowledge or give me death!"
--Kurt Vonnegut

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 275 ~

Sylva decided to add her teasing voice. Stroking her cowboy’s incredibly hard-muscled thigh, she asked,“Yeah, what did he do?” Ranson thumbed toward Zeke. “This here cowpoke let me chase him, then diabolically skirted the edges of a partially frozen pond. Like a fool I didn’t follow in his exact tracks and crashed through the thin snow-covered ice.” Zeke rumbled a laugh. “It was only waist deep. You made it to solid ground in minutes.” Charming to the end, Sylva thought, as Ranson arched one sandy-colored brow. “Yeah, well, certain parts of my anatomy complained mightily for more than a day.”

Zeke surely enjoyed how his Sylva ran her hand up and down his thigh, all lover-like. He also realized how much he’d missed his friendship with Ranson. Leaning forward, he clapped his shoulder. “Probably too late for an apology.” Ranson grinned, his gaze sparkly. “Put a crimp in my plans with Candace. If you recall.” Zeke raised both brows. “If you recall, I made that up to you. Flew her down to that weekend dance after I persuaded her you would show her a better time than Trent..” Ranson gave him a nod, remembering. “Course, she got hitched to Trent.”

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #56

The following week brings more turmoil into our lives. It could feel like forces are tugging at you from every direction. And they are. This turmoil may not show up in a personal way. If it does, however, one of the best tactics is avoidance, if possible. This is one of those situations that could resolve with the passing of time. Still, if the confrontation continues, tell your truth, then avoid the monster’s claws, so to speak.
The world stage will be dominant this week. The forces of darkness have made themselves known in the metaphorical style of STAR WARS. The Empire’s storm troopers have arrived and now is the time to love your freedom more than ever For it is the precious coin of the realm.


Angelic blessings from Volcano & Sedona

Flashing Your Favorite Vampire

Autumn greetings, lovely and lissome Big Cats, the sunset was a gorgeous pastel pink and purple in contrast to the red color emblazoned along the horizon last evening.
Vampires and Halloween go together like Ham and Eggs... you get my misty spooky drift. Today, author, Roscoe James, featured Vampire Flashing at the
Liquid Silver SEx blog. If those kind of sharp piercing fangs are your turn-on, bound on over, Kittens, and enjoy the blood lust.

The Kougar, given her current leg-better-heal-situation, was only up to offering her Serial Vampire Flash ~

Zhario of the Dark Server Unit

ONE
Zhario sniffed for the acrid bloom of scent that would rapidly lead him to the mutant he hunted. Hunted to extinction. He laughed inside at his own dark humor. He could hear the swine mutant’s heavy tread in a city alleyway, as he searched for prey, preferably a hapless human. But any stray would do. Covered by the night, Zhario swiftly unfurled his great black wings, and launched from the low rooftop. The odor of the mutant had peaked, meaning he’d sighted a victim. Diving, Zhario caught a yellowish flash of the mutant’s tusk. “Cupid, come back here. Cupid, please!”

TWO
The woman’s shrill desperate voice would have cut to his heart, if he’d had one. Zhario swooped faster along the alleyway. This wouldn’t be an easy kill now. The mutant loped toward the woman, instead of feeding on her pet. Close enough to the ugly brown brute, Zhario’s fangs snapped out. The woman stood in a pool of neon light, paralyzed by fear, holding her dog tight against her bosom. Focusing on the mutant, he arrowed his flight. Landing on the brute’s back, he sank his clawed fingers into the mutant’s thick greasy hide. Rearing back, he unhinged his mouth.

THREE
The woman’s scream bounced through alleyway, eerily echoing. Zhario bit, feeling his dagger-like fangs slide deep into the flesh that served as the mutant’s neck. Greenish blood spurted from a severed vein. Infuriated by what the mutant considered a petty attack that interrupted his dinner, he bucked like a fiend, repeatedly slamming his body against the concrete walls on either side of them, and sending a dumpster flying. Zhario hung on, withdrew his fangs, then sliced them over and over into the mutant’s boar-like strength, shredding his shoulder muscles. The woman shrieked hysterically, as if she could stop their battle.

FOUR
Stabbing his fangs beneath the mutant’s pig ear, Zhario found his artery, and ripped through it. Squealing horribly, the brute grabbed his neck with his pork-steak hand, trying to stop his blood from spurting like a fire hose. Unerringly, Zhario slipped forth his enchanted knife, and dealt the death blow. The mutant disappeared beneath him. At the same time, the woman and her dog were suspended in the sorcery vortex. He had to decide what to do with her. A full mind wipe was impossible. She’d witnessed too much, and the horror was embedded in her psyche. He felt it.

FIVE
Zhario stopped dead in his tracks. Funny, he thought, since he was dead to the human world. Her resemblance to his first love was uncannily similar. His loins lurched. Hellblade, his whole body lurched toward her, and wanted. Savagely wanted and tenderly wanted. His mind wanted to believe it was her, even though rational thought told him different. It was the woman’s face that reached in, grabbing his soul, and gripping his aching hungry balls. Stone-rot, he couldn’t leave her here to endure a lifetime of nightmares. She’d probably end up in a mental institution, drugged into a constant fog.

SIX
Stepping forward in a move he knew he would come to fiercely regret, especially since it was against the Dark Server code, Zhario wrapped her inside his wings. She awakened as he levitated them upwards. To halt the scream surging up her throat, he kissed her, hard at first, then more forcefully as her lips responded. He wondered if it was just her instinctive reaction to his kiss, or if she truly felt a sudden passion claim her, as he wanted to claim her. Barely, he heard her dog ferociously growl at him. Hellblood, Victoria waited for him. Now what?

SEVEN
Despite the attack of her dog, their lips didn’t unlock. Instead, their kiss deepened into a soft rage of passion. Maybe he’d toss the dog at Victoria, now that it had bitten him and would be turned. Victoria loathed dogs, especially vampire dogs. Zhario wrapped his legs tightly around the woman. Unfurling his wings, he soared them toward the rooftop of his warehouse home. To his astonishment their mouths remained fused in a blaze of lust that would have sent him up a bonfire, if real. Was she so terrified this was her primal reaction? Kiss him into carnal surrender?

EIGHT
Zhario silently landed them beside his rooftop entry. With her dog in a stupor of adjustment, he concentrated on her, tenderly parting their lips. “Home,” he uttered as he folded his wings inside his back cavity. “Home?” She blinked and he observed the haze of passion filling her aquamarine eyes. He considered turning her, but that would deplete his strength. If Victoria attacked, he could lose. Besides, he didn’t want to turn her this way. “What’s your name?” He hoped like Hell’s Own she would tell him. “I dreamed about you,” she whispered. “I’m Karra. Are you really a vampire?”

NINE
“Yes, Karra. But don’t be afraid. I don’t want to harm you.” He watched the reality of her situation surface in her eyes. “Oh.” Her breathing quickened. “You saved me, didn’t you? From that beast thing?” Hell help him, she was adorable beyond any words, even more so than his lost love. “I belong to the Dark Server Unit. We eliminate beasts like that.” Cradling her dog in one arm, she draped herself against him. “Thank you. Good lord, you can kiss. My lips are still tingling. Can you do it again?” For instants, Zhario couldn’t recover his voice. “Yes...”

TEN
“Zhario, darling, I see you brought dinner home.” Victoria stood in the entryway, a sly smile altering her perfect features. Fiercely eyeing the vampiress, Zhario demanded, “You will leave my home immediately. I have discovered my High Mate.” Victoria didn’t bat an eyelash. “Prove it. If she doesn’t possess the mark...” Zhario interrupted, “I will prove nothing to you. Leave, at my word.” Karra shifted in his embrace. “Do you mean this mark?” Swivelling her head, she moved her blouse collar aside revealing the black wings of his House. Victoria shrieked, vanishing after an ugly snarl. Zhario kissed his Karra.

What's ugly, smells, kills dogs? Blue-green algae

By ROBERT IMRIE (Associated Press Writer)
From Associated Press
September 27, 2009 4:11 PM EDT


WAUSAU, Wis. - Waterways across the upper Midwest are increasingly plagued with ugly, smelly and potentially deadly blue-green algae, bloomed by drought and fertilizer runoffs from farm fields, that's killed dozens of dogs and sickened many people.

Aquatic biologists say it's a problem that falls somewhere between a human health concern and a nuisance, but will eventually lead to more human poisoning. State officials are telling people who live on algae-covered lakes to close their windows, stop taking walks along the picturesque shorelines and keep their dogs from drinking the rank water.

~~~~~~~

Roaring, tail-slashing comment ~ If the Kougar had been forced to go to school year round, she would most likely have perished. Certainly, her spirit would have been murdered. As it was, she could hardly stand the amount of hours required, the mental pain being immense, even though she adored learning and generally made top grades.
Truly, what moi learned in grade school through the first year of high school, she could have learned in a third of the time, at the most. That means two thirds of her opportunity to learn was stolen from her by an educational system that was ridiculously regimented and outdated at that time. Now, it’s quantum levels worse, overall ~ not counting the good teachers who do their best to teach and reform the system.
In this Big Cat’s opinion, school all year long, is sheer unmitigated unconscionable abuse of children and their souls. If parents allow this, the humanity of their children will be lost to a system that seeks to make everyone conform like a cog in a wheel, or a chip in a computer, despite all the words and protests to the contrary. It’s the corporate nature of the beast. And it must be fed with the innocense of children and by draining them of their true creative intelligence like an eternally starving vampire.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 274 ~

Sylva habitually observed people whenever she could, finding humanity and individuals fascinating, in general. As she gazed at Ranson, she couldn’t help but notice the loneliness lodged deep in his far-seeing eyes. She assumed, since she was romantic at heart, that it was because he didn’t have the companionship of a wife. Of course, maybe, he didn’t have enough close friends. Though, from the way he’d spoken about his home, it was obvious he loved where he lived. “I drove through a part of the Smoky Mountains...” Sylva halted, wondering if she’d revealed too much. “It’s okay, darlin’,” Zeke whispered.

Zeke caressed his Sylva’s arm, encouraging her to finish. “It was absolutely beautiful,” she finished. “I could certainly understand why they were named that.” Ranson gave her the grin guaranteed to charm any woman with a beating heart. “No better place to live. I keep telling Zeke that. Remember those coupla winters I took you home during breaks?” Zeke lazed a smile. “Sure do. Especially those icy snowballs you took such pride in, and hurled so effectively in my direction.” Ranson chuckled, leaning back. “Your retaliation surely got my attention.” Marina visibly perked up. “Retaliation? What did big brother do?”

Caught Between Red Sundown and the Half Moon

Featured is the cover of THE SIRIUS MYSTERY by a phenomenal scholar, Robert Temple

Weekend meows, Beautiful Big Cats, earlier today the Kougar was caught between the most glorious red sundown along the horizon’s curve, and the hanging half moon, a glistening enchanting white.
~~~
Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

Darkness as Kallyn had never known enveloped her. She’d stopped flailing, her instinctive reaction giving way to utter shock. The echo of her screams vanished like whispers lost to a strong wind. Around her all sound ceased. Eerily, there was only the sensation of falling.

For the next part of the Never-Ending Story by the Kougar ~ RomanticSynonymous ~
~~~

Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougar’s HER INSATIABLE DARK HEROES has gone **Kindle** ~ http://amazon.com/Insatiable-Heroes-Chrontropolis-Publishing-ebook/dp/B002JGZARG ~
Yay, that’s the good news.
Sadly, mews and poos, someone didn’t like it and gave it a 1-rated review. Though, this Big Cat author is always forced to wonder if the reader didn’t like it or if someone is jealous??? Given that ill will is *sometimes* the motivation for reviews these days in the romance world.
Nope, moi did not read the review.
On another tail-whipping thought, the Kougaress must assume all those who have pirated and are e-pirating Insatiable Dark must not share that reader’s low opinion. What a world we live in... roars.
And added thought... perhaps, the Kougar should send her poor review to all the e-pirating sites, thus, easily ending their interest and illegal activity.

Just for the Halloween lovin’ KitKats ~ the words of Hades from the Kougar’s WIP ~ KANDY APPLE FOR HALLOWEEN ~

After swirling the drink, Zin tipped up another small swig and reflected on Hades’ words to them before they’d departed for their first mission on the surface.

As pups and children you were cared for by my most beloved, Persephone, and her maidens, often knowing the comfort of their laps and their stroking hands.
As rutting youths you attended training lectures about the nature of women given by the most renown of our goddesses and their daughters... Aphrodite, Hera, Artemis, Gaia, Atalanta, Selene... to name but a few.
Access to our libraries has been yours. Your every inquiry has been answered.
Upon the age of copulation, you were initiated into the carnal pleasures by women of great knowledge and prowess. You have attended all manner of feast orgies and fae revelries. You have played in the Upperworld and learned the art to seducing human women.
Why?
Zolivar and Zindale, mortal women, though they rarely realize it, have the power to rule Earth, to bring forth a paradise of peace. Their assistance will be all-important to accomplishing your missions and to living successfully in the Upperworld.
Remember these words of mine, my hellhounds, and you will avoid failing me. Far more crucial to us all, you will serve the Goddess of Justice extraordinarily well.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 273 ~

Sylva welled up with a newfound happiness. No man had ever treated her with such care. She couldn’t help but hope it would continue. She smiled widely at her cowboy husband and made a silent wish he would see the appreciation in her eyes. Not that Sylva believed their relationship would always be so congenial and cozy. She had a huge feeling fireworks and not just passionate fireworks would occur at times, simply because she knew her own nature and she was beginning to understand how strong and highhanded he could be. Still, now was now. Sylva wanted to enjoy.

Zeke wandered around inside his Sylva’s brighter-than-the-noon-sky eyes with his gaze. “Did you get that, sis?” Tearing himself away, he glanced around at everyone. “Yep, got it. Mine and Grant’s are ordered,” she replied. Zeke grinned at Ranson. “What are you havin’?” Ranson answered with his own good-natured grin. “Long night ahead, looks like. I’m goin’ for a rare steak and all the trimmings. Plus, a good-sized mug of coffee.” Letting the menu roll back into a scroll, Ranson faced Zeke. “You and your bride will have to visit my home in the Smoky Mountains. Got some horses you’ll appreciate.”

Red sundown kisses from the Kougar...

Hellhounds are Number Two

Weekend greetings, Beautiful KitKats. The sunlight is waning each day, so enjoy the warmth while it’s still here. Maow and flicking tail, we all might be asking for global warming this winter.
Yep-purring, the Kougar was listening to
Coast to Coast am the other night, as she usually does. And what does she hear?
Hellhounds are Number Two
On paranormal investigator,
Joshua P. Warren’s biggest baddest list of the ‘Top 5 Scariest Cryptids’.
Plus, moi was working on her Halloween story about her TWO Hellhound heros and their witch heroine. Yowling-synchronicity, how good is it?

~~~~~~

Warning ~ roars from the politically incorrect ~

The Kougaress heard something yesterday she thought she’d never hear in her lifetime, except in a terrifying apocalyptic movie.

BY ORDER OF THE CITY OF PITTSBURG CHIEF OF POLICE: THIS IS AN UNLAWFUL ASSEMBLY ~~~insert here, the sound cannons, as they’re called, being used against the people~~~ good lord, those things, even over internet radio are ghastly, enough to make you sick to your stomach and feel temporarily nuts.
But WTF!!! There is no such thing as an unlawful or illegal assembly by the very definition of the word, assembly, itself. On public property people can assemble anywhere they want, anytime they want. No, any curfew or other code is not actually legal. It’s simply enforced as if it is. Hey, they’ve got the guns and the tasers ~ and usually, the money.
Assembling is not rioting, by definition. Assembling, as most people were doing, is not a small idiot group of anarchists with drug-fried brains led by fed and police provocateurs, who put on a convenient show for the mainstream media.

***assembly >noun (pl. assemblies) 1 a group of people gathered together. 2 a body with powers to make decisions and laws. 3 a regular gathering of teachers and pupils in a school. 4 the action of assembling component parts. 5 a unit consisting of assembled parts.***
~~~~~~

Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougar has been penning away on her WIP, Kandy Apple for Halloween, with the intention to continue finishing up BRANDED BY THE TEXANS asap.
With the release of her latest, STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME, it’s been a helter skelter time of promo-ing. Plus, life doesn’t always cooperate... yowl-does it?

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 272 ~

Sylva straightened. Was she about to hear a ‘ribald night’ story? Part of her was downright curious. Part of her wasn’t certain she wanted to know, yet. Zeke slid his arm around her shoulders, encouraging her closer. “The tales of my ribald nights at university will have to wait. My bride needs her supper. Marina is giving me the ferocious eye.” Zeke chuckled deeply. “Do you know what you’d like, darlin’?” Sylva had lost track of what she’d been hungry for. Still... “Actually, pancakes sound good. But with whipped cream and a fruit topping. Is that on the menu here?”

Zeke grabbed a screen menu and quickly unrolled it to the pancake selections. “There are dessert pancakes,” Marina helpfully offered, then summoned up the order panel. “Right as usual, sis.” Zeke enlarged that part of the menu with a touch and placed it before his Sylva’s gaze. “Strawberries,” she praised as if she’d found some delight long lost to her. “This selection looks good.” She pressed her finger on the buttermilk pancakes topped with strawberries, honey and cream.” Zeke took a peek at her face. “Is that all?” She nodded in answer. “If you’re still hungry we’ll get something else.”

Scary kisses from the Kougar...

The Final Snippets ~ Heart Mate

FIRST! A major purring thank you to Lindsay Townsend, Gem Sivad, Serena Shay and Pat Cunningham for helping to make the release day for STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME extra special. The Kougar truly appreciates all of you author ladies and knows she is in the best of company.

Yep, the final snippets ~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #9

Chapter Nine ~ The Portal Key


“Why not just abduct me if they wanted the device?”

“Intergalactic Federation rules. No humans like you abducted.”

“Like me?”

“Non-enemies to those races in the Intergalactic Federation.”

“Unlike some in Earth’s Shadow Government.”

He nodded. “Like I said, the Fire Starters are already violating the rule against the type of mining they’re gearing up to do. If they were caught abducting you, they would be banished from this sector of the galaxy.”

“So, they get others, humans, to do their dirty work.”

“With you detained by the Sheriff, they could have ransacked this place looking for the device.”
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #10

Chapter Ten ~ Personal Battering Ram


She remained silent for moments, her body still. “Okay, Mr. Save-the-day Stallion, what now?”

“Time for some smoldering action.”

“Smoldering,” she began, outraged.

Trail dived his phased hand inside the semi-truck. He flattened it on top of a huge box, sending sparks into the dry cardboard until it burned.

Staring at his hand as he phased it back to full flesh, she demanded, “What did you do?”

“Started a little fire.”

“Oh.”

“Be prepared to run once we’re inside.”
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #11

Chapter Eleven ~ A Drop of Blood


“You haven’t delivered my request yet, V’Trailuc.” The Hjorior’s voice boomed through his particles.

“No,” Trail telepathically returned. “We’ve been busy saving Earth from those who would plunder its gold.”

In one tick of time, they stood before the Hjorior, inside a more welcoming area of his craft. Beams of pastel light created a beautiful sheen on the slightly curving walls. Trail pivoted, wrapping his arms around Seneca, bringing her close to his body. She blinked like an owl caught in the beam of a high-powered flashlight.

“Successfully, I see by my overview of your adventures.” The Hjorior looked down his beard at them.

“And just who are you?” Seneca demanded, her tone like a fuse about to be lit.

“An ancestor of sorts, Ma’Blechiunna.”
~~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #12

Chapter Twelve ~ The Love of a Good Horse Shifter


“Every mare needs the stallion who not only loves her, but knows how to handle her with the right persuasions.”

She cocked her head, her chin defiant. Challenge glinted in her eyes. “Is that so?”

Trail didn’t regret his words, but his mate expected an answer, proof for what he’d just claimed. Letting his passion ignite, he started with her face, then scorched his gaze downward in a deliberate perusal of her body. He did what he’d wanted to do every time he’d seen her, let her know how alluring and sexy he found her. Let her know he was ready to mount her until she begged for mercy, or for more.

“Oh God,” she breathlessly burst out
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Last Snippet #13

Chapter Thirteen ~ Heart Mate


Leaping up the steps, he positioned the groceries and dinner under one arm, then turned the handle, entering. “Home, honey,” he yelled.

“In the kitchen,” she sang back. He listened to her pause as he moved toward her. “Do I call you the mystery hero who took down the Looney Tunes sheriff?”

“Stud is better.” He walked into the kitchen, dropped the Artie’s bag on the table and sauntered toward her.

Part 271 ~

Sylva echoed, “Stella?” Zeke wrapped her hand inside his. “Seems the Long Walker, Matt, was being tailed himself by the brother of Stella because she’s with child.” Sylva watched Marina’s eyebrows hit the ceiling. “Shades of the olden times. May I assume Matt wanted to return to his lady love?” Zeke nodded. “So, it appeared. What’ya think, Ranson? Matt sounded damn sincere to my ear.” Ranson gave a short nod. “I’d say so. Might be willing to play life straight with a child on the way.” Marina glanced at Ranson. “That generally changes a man’s motivation right quick.” Ranson nodded.

Zeke lifted his Sylva’s hand, briefly pressing a kiss on her knuckles. “What’s everyone hungry for? I could go with a tall stack of buckwheat pancakes and sausage.” Ranson heartily laughed for moments. “Only Zeke here could put away pancakes until the cooks at university threatened to go on temporary strike.” Zeke mock-frowned. “Me? What about you downin’ all those fried eggs every morning. The rest of us would still be bleary-eyed from a ribald night in town and drinkin’ coffee and tomato juice while Ranson here was scoopin’ in the runny yellow eyes.” Grant grinned at Zeke. “Ribald night?”

End of Release Day smooch from the Kougar...

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Trail and Seneca ~ the big day...

Yep and yowl, my fierce and lovely KitKats, the big release day for STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME is here. The Kougar is kicking up her paw-heels.

Here are the latest snippets ~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - X-Snippet #5

Chapter Five ~ You Smell Like a Stud

He eased his cock back with painful slowness. Once he reached her tight silky entrance, he paused for an instant, immersing himself in her impassioned gaze. Her eyes were misty and bright. Breaking eye contact, he lunged swift and hard. After that, he didn’t stop. His needy shaft launched inside her over and over, his hips bucking with a fierce rhythm.
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #6

Chapter Six ~ I Arrived on Earth

“Thought what?” he asked, more curious than sin.

“You know. A renegade type.” She let her hand drop away from her throat.

“Renegade,” he repeated in a rasp. Eros god, did he ever want to be his mare’s renegade lover. He wanted to touch her desperately. Their legs still pressed together, but he wanted to caress her face, take her again. Mate her.

Instead, he murmured, “Seneca, only you can recover the amulets.”

She scrutinized his face, trying to determine if he told the truth. “I don’t understand.”
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #7

Chapter Seven ~ Full-Time Stud


Trail caressed her breasts, sliding his palms from beneath them. She nestled inside his arms as he opened them to her.

“What do we do now?” she whispered. “I felt...I guess it’s your energy, on the phone line.”

“Yes,” he answered, matching her hushed voice. “Plenty of listeners.”

She nodded, and her tears dripped on his arm, tiny hot splashes. “Does your race cry?”

He nodded, his cheek brushing her hair. “Our tears aren’t as salty.” Hugging her closer, he rested his cheek against the side of her head.

“What are we going to do? The damn effing sheriff is planning a yellow-bellied ambush. God, I’d like to...never mind.”

“I have a plan. An ambush of my own.”
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #8

Chapter Eight ~ Sheriff Pork Belly


From the shaded entrance of the stable, he watched her stride resolutely down her drive until she disappeared. Floating his sixth sense above her, he felt her volatile, yet cold determination to take on her enemy. Part of it had been born out of her sheer disgust and outrage over his immoral criminal activities. Yet, most of it was for her brother. Her fists were clenched, her nails digging into her palms. Her chin jutted with challenge.

Once Sheriff Colgan turned onto her drive, she marched faster, intercepting his effort to drive around her. She planted herself in front of his car and folded her arms. He felt her enraged glare.

Sheriff Colgan took his time getting out of his car, finally emerging as if he’d arrived to do her favor, and she better be grateful for it. He hitched up his gun belt before striding a few steps alongside his car.

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

Part 270 ~

Sylva felt as if a hundred pound weight had been lifted off her shoulders. At least, Zeke knew. “Come on, darlin’, let’s get some dinner. I’m starved.” Together, they moved the short distance to the booth. Her cowboy gentlemanly handed her onto the bench seat, then slid in beside her. “Ranson is going to join us for a spell.” Zeke waved him over. Ranson reminded Sylva of the cowboy singer, Dwight Yokum. Only he was taller, larger in stature. “Ranson, you remember my sister, Marina. And this Grant, who gave us some timely assistance. And this is my bride, Sylva.”
Zeke watched Ranson position his chair and join them. His smile of old was in place, the one that made him look like a merry prankster. “Pleasure to meet ya all. Especially Zeke’s bride.” He tipped his hat to Sylva before removing it. “That was quite a little showdown, even if it turned out right,” Grant stated, placing his arm around Marina’s shoulders. “Certainly is rare these days for a woman to run away, marry, and not tell her family,” Zeke commented. “Know anything about Stella?” he asked Ranson. “Nope. I’ll investigate once I return.” Marina raised her brows, “Stella?”

Snippets from STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME

Okay, darling Big Cats, the Kougar received her ARCS today for Stallion. And, since moi has been working on them, here they are, the snippets, so far ~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #1

Chapter One ~ Her Hired Hand


“Oh.”

Her voluptuous dark pink lips formed an O. Trail caught himself wondering if she would respond to him like Maureen O’Hara had to John Wayne when he’d hauled her over his lap and given her ass a good blistering. Or when he’d seized her against him and forced a kiss on her fighting lips.

Stop, he warned himself. Stop thinking like that.
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #2

Chapter Two ~ Why a Shoebox?


“They’re gone,” she whispered, despair in every line of her body. Twisting out of his grip, she moved to a side window. “Now I wish we’d never found them. It’s not worth what ” She pivoted back to him. “You know, what just happened to us, to Luke and Spook. It’s not worth it. Now that they’ve been stolen, I guess I don’t have to worry about being attacked again.”

“There may be more than one group after them,” he cautioned. “Why a shoebox?”
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #3

Chapter Three ~ Fire Devouring Stallion


Trail hit the steering wheel with the heel of his hand, hard. Frustration owned him as the vision formed inside his mind. Minutes ago, a nasty firebombing had taken place. The towers of flame erupted before his mind’s eye.

Making a sharp right onto a back road, he smashed the pedal down, blasting the speedometer up to ninety in seconds.

The fire spread rapidly, and he’d been the stallion designated to handle it.
~~~~~~

Stallion of Ash and Flame - Snippet #4

Chapter Four ~ Psi-viewing Together


Cautiously, he arrowed his awareness toward whoever spied on them, not knowing if they had their own psychic talent, a more common practice than most people realized. He found two men and a woman inside a cargo van parked near the end of a neighbor’s drive.

One of the men reached out with psi tendrils trying to grasp what teased the edge of his mind’s eye. To distract him while he investigated the setup, Trail tempted him with false images. Hearing Seneca’s footsteps, he felt inspiration slap him as if a mare hoofed his butt. “Do you want to see?” he quietly asked.

“See?” she whispered, approaching him. He felt her curiosity rise with the strength of the forest fire he’d defeated.

“I’ll show you what I’m viewing.”

“How?”

Authoress news and mews ~

Meow, the next chapter of CURSES will be up on Wednesday, September 23rd.

Dorchester/Textnovel contest ~

CURSES WERE STRANGE BEASTS
~ Chronicles of an Earth-bound Goddess ~


CHAPTER FIFTEEN ~ Fetid Smelly Pit

“I thought you only wanted it ‘vanilla’ style,” she icily whispered.
Not answering, he gripped her upper arm. His hand felt like a searing vice as he led her through the station. The stench from miserable arrested drunks and drugged-up humanity smacked her hard. The smell of stale donuts and equally stale coffee assaulted her next. Cigarette smoke drifted from the back of the building and mixed with the cheap cologne a lot of the officers had slapped on before work. Keziah’s stomach tumbled nastily.
She ignored her queasiness trying to focus on how to escape Thunder-Force Man, despite her raging carnal appetite for him.

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

Part 269 ~

Sylva knew she had tell to Zeke she’d spilled the beans about her psychic tendencies. But when? And how. Should it be now? Her cowboy palmed her face, then stroked. “What is it?” he asked softly. Swallowing, she gathered up her courage. “I made a mistake... a big one.” Her cowboy gazed deeply into her eyes, a slight frown on his face. “What did you do?” Wincing inside, she answered, “I let it slip to your sister and her husband about my... you know... abilities.” His gaze hardened for a moment. “It was an accident,” she continued. “I was worried about you.”

Zeke felt concern flood him, then fill him as if he was the Grand Canyon. His Sylva, his precious wife. “I’m sorry,” she murmured in the silence. “I found myself watching you in my mind. I could tell you were okay... and, well, your sister was as worried and...” Zeke interrupted, “It’s okay, darlin’ Sylva. I’ll handle it.” He thought again, catching a glimpse of Marina’s knowing expression. “We’ll handle it. From the look my sister just gave me, I think your secret is safe.” She nodded softly against his palm. “I think so,” she agreed. “Your sister has been wonderful.”

Rainy, Drizzly, Thundery...

Pic from ~ http://celticstitchery.com ~

Good late evening, my adored Big Cats, it’s been a rainy drizzly thundery day on the tame prairie today... good for the Kougar since it gives her leg more healing time. Certainly, the rain is good news for the land and right on time to avoid the drought that was so entrenched about a year ago.
Autumn begins and moi just went an image search for an Autumn Celtic Goddess to while away her precious time... meow-no, but that’s what occurs since she discovered a treasure of gorgeous images... and wouldn’t she like to be wearing that, like the gown above.
There’s always a unique magic for each season and Autumn enfolds us in its own wisdom and sorcery... a softening, more golden light surrounds us... the days shorten and darkness embraces us quicker each day... the veil between the seen and unseen gradually thins and opens briefly on Halloween or Samhain.
The Kougaress believes there will be more paranormal types of events taking place than ever before... perhaps, the unseen wants to be seen, now. Perhaps, howling and yowling, it’s time.
The truth will out... and this includes what some label the paranormal...
Maybe, it’s time we just all grew up and learned what our world is truly like... the modern myth of only science, mechanics and everything machine, is over.
We are far more than has been revealed to us.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 268 ~

Sylva nearly grinned big time as Marina’s lovely face scrunched into a frown. “Mother and I were doin’ some serious prayin’ that Merlinda would find another husband. Guess it worked out just fine, given what happened at the Emerald Shamrock. That must have been some rootin’ tootin’ show and a half.” Sylva could only nod and keep on grinning. “Grant and I are plannin’ on doing some serious bribing to get those movin’ images, if we --” The diner door burst open. Both Sylva and Marina jerked their gazes in that direction. Grant strode inside first, followed by Zeke and Ranson.

Zeke’s heart jumped with happiness at his Sylva’s relieved expression and at the rapid rise and fall of her chest. She must have been scared out of her wits, not knowing for certain if he’d come back, even if she did possess those psychic abilities. He opened his arms to her once he neared the table. Bolting upwards, she rushed into his embrace. Her tight little hold on him almost made him laugh outright, his own giddy relief at seeing her. Holding her close, he rocked her a bit. Suddenly, she stilled, gazing up at him like a guilty pup.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #55

This week foreshadows the rest of the year, 2009. Every event on the world stage will continue to grow and culminate at the end of the year or within the first months of 2010.
This is also a time to take stock of what has gone on in your personal life and career, so far, with an eye toward the future. Specifically, those things and trends you want to continue, that is where to place your focus and energy.
Whereas those things you would prefer to end or change, this is the time to ease yourself away from them and look for how to make the best changes.
This is a good time to renew partnerships that have worked for you and are working for you, no matter if it’s business or personal. The right partnerships are crucial for the times ahead.
Remember, no matter what occurs ~ family and friends, those you love, that is your true sanctuary.

Angelic blessings from Volcano & Sedona

First day of Autumn kiss from the Kougar...

Flash of FairyTale Naughtiness

Okay, my darling KitKats, looks like the Kougar is on schedule with editing STALLION and will e-send on time. Whinny whoopee!!!
A mostly gray overcast day on the tame prairie with only a tease of rain. Moi was reading a news item about the slow change of the leaves to their Fall colors. Not so, here. However, it’s not the arrival of Autumn which is changing the color earlier than usual. It’s something else at work. Something not normal in nature.

~~~
Ah, Flash Fiction Sunday at the Liquid Silver SEx blog, the Kougar couldn’t resist Jolie Cain’s FairyTale challenge ~

Here’s the Kougar’s Flash of FairyTale Naughtiness ~

Zair, the Bear Shifter, hailed his two brothers, Zykr and Zror, to his side.
Yearning with a hard-on that wouldn’t quit, he peered around the trunk of a huge oak tree.
“Xounds!” Zykr growled, “She could keep a bear warm all winter.”
Whipping his gaze around the other side of the tree trunk, Zror roared causing the gorgeous human woman to flee inside their home.
“Victory!” Zair barked a growl as the three slapped paws in a high five, “she’s ours!”
“Ursula will rage,” Zykr reminded them of the she-bear who’d claimed them despite not one mating encounter with her.

Tiptoeing toward their own cabin, the three brothers barely rustled the autumn leaves.
Sniffing for the woman’s scent, they slid their bulky bodies next to the immense front window, peeking inside.
“Redhead,” Zror whispered, “luck has found us.”
“Quiet,” Zair warned, “I think she’s heard us. Change quick.” Grimacing with pain, they shifted into men, donning the clothes they kept in a bench chest. Immediately, Zykr knocked on their door, a smile owning his face.
“Pleasure to meet you,” Zykr rumbled, once the door cracked open.
“Oh,” she breathy greeted. “I’m glad to see you. There are bears out there.”

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 267 ~

Sylva grinned. “Except for Sally, it was a real treat.” Marina’s brows shot upwards. “That poor child’s been mooning over big brother for a long time.” In the grip of curiosity, Sylva asked, “Why wasn’t Zeke interested, since there’s a shortage of women here?” Marina’s eyes danced, amusement lighting them. “Sally’s not his type of woman, in looks or in personality. Besides, he always thought of her as a baby sister.” Sylva forced her hands apart and tried to ease her tension. “That makes sense. I guess if I hadn’t dropped into that mud puddle, he would have married Merlinda.”

Zeke holstered his pistol, then indicated with a head movement to Grant that he could do the same. “Contact you soon,” Ranson growled, low and private, to the Long Walker. Pivoting, he addressed the stranger, “He’s all yours. I’m countin’ on fair play between you two.” With a tip of his hat, the stranger shouted, “He plays fair, I play fair.” Carefully, keeping his stride suppressed, Matt approached. “You gonna give me a report on Stella?” he inquired, his tone somewhat polite. “Soon as you tell me what I want to know.” Observing, Zeke slung an arm around Ranson’s shoulders.
