Flash ~ Catching up with Sylva and Zeke

Pic from ~ ~

Yowls, a Valentine spinning head for this Big Cat girl... it’s been a mad dashing whirl of everything Valentiney in the e-romance world... wowsa meowsa... a huge roar of thanks to everyone who participated in the weekend Be My Valentine Blog Tour and in the Siren Seven Days of Valentine ... the Kougar so relishes the comments, all the author bloggies and posts... it’s like whisky shots of romance and champagne sips of extreme passion... via words and images...
Purrs-yes, the Kougar was a bad kitty girl... she left out Adrian Paul... so, she went searching. How well this dance-adoring KitKat remembers this Highlander scene... oh, and would she ever love dancing in the arms of Adrian Paul. Mews about a fantasy come true... and, tail-flicking maybe, a great use for a time machine... hmmm... other than this fab question from Lindsay Townsend...

If I had a time machine to spend a romantic valentine I'd love to go to Japan to be a Giesha, or ancient Rome, to be a lady (probably a widow) of independent means who could take in the baths and the libraries and the chariot racing, all in a day.
Or to be a damsel at a medieval joust and send favours and set challenges for my favourite knights.

How about you? When would you go, if you had a time machine? 1800? 1900? 1100? BCE or far into the future?

Best wishes, Lindsay

Oh, Kittens, here’s an alcoholic beverage this valentine cat would enjoy lapping... if only... yep, this will be featured in one of the Kougar’s erotic romance novels...

The Greatest Love
by Chelle Cordero

My parents were married nearly 32-years when my dad passed away. I always believed that they shared the greatest love story of all and would eventually be immortalized along with Antony and Cleopatra, Tony and Maria, Romeo and Juliet, and (my favorite) Scarlett and Rhett.

It’s All in How You Start
by Serena Shay

Now, on with the show...

You know, as a little girl, I was sometimes lucky enough to be able to attend live concerts and shows with my parents, Ice Capades, Beatlemania (not the real Beatles, but the music was still great.), The Beach Boys and movies galore. Much to my chagrin though, they saw Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seager without me.

Oh, the Memories
by Bekki Lynn

On Facebook the other day, the sister of a friend of mine posted a little dilly for everyone to repost. She finds these little fun things for all to do and they are a hit. This particular one was to post an older photo of you with your SO/spouse and date your relationship.
Another, a guy, posted wanting everyone to name their favorite Led Zepplin song and why.

Oh, the memories these two posts brought up.

The Kougar added her latest 1,000 word flashie, Flash of Fortunate Wolves... Silver Spoon, to her FLASH FICTION COLLECTION at TextNovel ~
MORE! FLASH FICTION ~ at The Naughty Girls Next Door ~ ~

Here’s moi’s flash... not too good, but it was damn late and this Flash Cat was tired... there are better flashies at The Naughty Girls... give them a look...

She couldn’t breathe. Sinking like she’d been chained to concrete blocks, Kresly flailed in the cold black water, even though she knew it would be useless. Damn! Her life did flash before her eyes. Astoundingly, she began to feel peaceful, especially after she inhaled the first lung full of icy water. One moment she’d been standing on the pier, shivering and hugging her parka close to her body. She’d been enjoying the starry sky, the crescent moon directly overhead, the clear fresh air. The forceful shove had come from behind... oh no! An enormous hand gripped her ankle pulling downward.


Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~ from the Flash Cat...

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 411 ~

Sylva giggled softly. “You’ll always be my favorite stud.” Intentionally, she’d emphasized ‘stud’. “But, yes, cowboy,” she palmed his ‘more than a washboard’ chest, caressing, “I bet I am gonna enjoy looking and getting to know your horses.” From what she’d already learned about his family and seen of this Earth, Sylva felt something she hadn’t known for quite awhile. A new kind of hope and an enthusiasm for life. She’d known her zest for living had diminished lately. She’d even known why, for the most part. However, the differences between the two Earth cultures had brought it home. Home...

Zeke observed the fleeting expressions on his Sylva’s completely lovely face. It dawned on him she owned a special spirit he found utterly appealing. Also, fascinating. Life didn’t merely pass her by. She thought about it. Tried to understand ‘the whys’ with a fervor he respected. His woman was a thinker. He’d make certain to engage her in the type of learning she’d enjoy and thrive on. Grinning, he rasped, “I better be your favorite stud. Course, I’m all ‘up’ for convincing you of my mounting stamina.” Shaping her hand into a claw, she grazed her fingertips over his chest.

Part 412 ~

Sylva let her sensual side come out to play as she stroked her cowboy’s chest. Trailing her fingertips over his skin, she decided to take a chance with her heart. “I’m hoping,” she drew in a large breath, “that I have found a home... here, with you. I mean, I don’t mean to... to, well...” Zeke caressed his fingerpads over the top of her hand as she continued stroking him. “It’s fine, darlin’ mine. I don’t expect you to consider me the husband of your heart. Not yet. Till I prove myself. And that takes time. Us living with each other.”

Zeke praised the ever-lovin’ God that his Sylva felt enough for him that she’d made herself vulnerable. He could hear her uncertain heart within her soft voice. He heard her desire to have a real home, the one he figured she might never have had. At least, not with a man. His jealous side whinnied, charging like a stallion about to fend off another stallion to keep his mare ~ at the thought another man had given her what he alone wanted to provide. “Yes, it does take time,” she murmured. Halting his jealousy, he covered her hand, and gently stroked.

Part 413 ~

Sylva flattened her hand indulging in the feel of her cowboy husband, not only the delectable hardness of his chest, but the caress of his hand on the top of hers. “Oh, this feels so completely good. I’ve always dreamed of it being this way... oh, god, I’m just spilling everything... but, I’ve never known anyone like you... Zeke.” She hesitated, then asked, “Is something wrong? You, you feel tense.” Her cowboy loosed a small low chuckle. “Sylva, darlin’, I’m just feeling my oats. My jealousy oats.” Not understanding, Sylva quirked her brow. “Jealousy?” His palm smoothed up her arm.

Zeke figured it was wise to tell his woman what went on inside him as a man, not leave her wondering about his moods and thoughts. “Maybe I shoulda said possessive. I like givin’ you what no other man has.” She smiled teasingly. “You mean you like being the ‘first’. Like that whole virgin thing. Sorry to disappoint you there.” The depths of her eyes turned somber. “Sylva, I ain’t no fool. You’re my gift. All I care about is being with you as your husband. Still, truth is truth, as a man I’m damn possessive. I’ll always feel that.”
