Cougar’s Mate: Instinct told her to run…

Shannon Rafferty learns that hanging out with the bad boys could be a dangerous business, but hooking up with a cop is even worse. Now she’s on the run, trying to avoid being murdered by his cougar shifter brothers and uncle. If that isn’t bad enough, a deputy sheriff hunts her down while she’s running as a cougar and trying to survive in the Colorado wilderness. He vows to protect her no matter what she’s done. With three dead boyfriends to her name, she’s sure she will be the death of Chase Buchanan before either of them can prevent it. No matter how much she knows she has to run again, he soon holds her heart hostage. But will that be enough to keep them both alive?

Chase Buchanan—as wilderness cabin resort owner, former US Army Special Forces, and part time deputy of the small town of Yuma, Colorado that boasts a love of cougars—is tasked to track down a cougar reported to be hunting human prey. Chase soon learns she’s a shifter, not a full-time cougar, and she’s on the run. When he takes her in, he vows to protect her. After losing his wife and baby to the human kind of predator years earlier, he’s not letting Shannon’s hunters kill her, too. But how is he going to hold onto the wild-cat woman, who is unpredictable at every turn, without losing his heart to her, and then losing her as well?

Call of the Cougar 3D 04162014 copyCall of the Cougar: Looking for love can be dangerous…

Special Agent for the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife Services, Tracey Whittington, takes down wildlife traffickers and more, but what she doesn’t expect is to be in a shootout, multiple times, when the business turns deadly. Nor does she suspect she’ll be working with Hal Haverton, who serves as a part-time deputy for Yuma Town, Colorado, and runs his own horse ranch. As long as he doesn’t stop her investigative work—she has been placed on administrative leave due to the last shootout—she’ll be just fine.

Hal Haverton has every intention of keeping the wild cat safe, even if it means helping her to solve the case when every time he turns around, she’s involved in another shootout. When her boss asks their good friend, the sheriff, to have one of his deputies serve as a bodyguard for the cougar shifter, Hal’s all for it. So is the other deputy, but Hal’s got this covered. Even if getting somewhere with the lady means having his gun ready at all times. There are definite perks to getting to know the Special Agent better—if they live long enough to do something about it.

Cougar shifter, Dr. Kate Parker, is planning her annual camping vacation alone this year. She runs into trouble before she even starts her trip in the form of one wounded, hot cougar undercover cop—or so he says. He’s not going along with just her tender loving care because he came into town as a cougar, and he needs her help to get him back to where he can take up the search to look for an arms dealer, who just happens to be a cougar too.
Leyton Hill slipped into the unlocked, darkened clinic, figuring his luck had just changed. Except he doesn’t plan for the good doctor to be napping in her office. Taking him on her vacation wasn’t in the plan, and taking her hostage, hadn’t been either, but now she’s stuck with him until he can get back to his mission and the chase at hand. It appears the roles have reversed and who’s holding whom hostage now?

Trouble doesn’t always come in twos.
Jack Barrington still has an army obligation that takes him away from the woman who had enchanted him when they were both in college, but Dottie Hamilton refuses to marry a man in the military because of the problem of raising cougar shifter cubs in foreign lands and the worry he may be killed while overseas like her cousin was, leaving a wife and three little ones behind. When Jack returns home to see his family and Dottie’s only living relative, her aunt, she convinces Dottie to bring her twins home to see her—and to see him. Jack has two-and-a-half weeks to convince Dottie to wait for him while he finishes his last three months on active duty. And learns the truth. Dottie’s twins are his own flesh and blood.

Dottie has made a lot of mistakes in her life, including providing a father for her children by marrying a man, who turns out to be an arms’ dealer. When Jack returns to her after finishing his army obligation, he’s determined to prove he’s the mate she needs in her life, and he has every intention of being the father to his four-year-old twins. Now the criminal deeds of Dottie’s dead ex-husband have come back to haunt her. And she and Jack and their cougar friends will have to band together to stop the arms’ dealers before they destroy what the cougars hold dear.

Cougar Magic

She doesn’t think she needs a hero, but he’s taking the job.

Deputy Sheriff and cougar Stryker Hill is not on duty when the sheriff asks him to check out a possible break-in of a resident’s home while they are away on a cruise. What he doesn’t expect is to find the beautiful and mysterious cougar he’d seen at a Christmas charity where he was showing his abs off as Santa Clause. But she’s got some moves to rival his own as she takes him down and he’s left wondering who she really is and how he’s going to keep her from leaving Yuma Town before he learns the truth.

Ricky Jones is looking forward to his first day on the job as a deputy sheriff in the cougar-run town of Yuma Town, but he doesn’t expect to run into his former girlfriend while he’s wearing his cougar coat. Now he wants her back in the worst way, but he’s sure she’s going to be even madder at him for dumping her three years back.

Mandy Richards is on her way to an interview at a hospital north of Yuma Town for the position of a Licensed Practical Nurse when she hits a cougar in the thick foggy night, a full moon silhouetted in the gloom on Friday, the thirteenth. Checking on the wounded cougar changes her world forever.

But her most recent ex-boyfriend isn’t going along with Ricky’s plans to renew his relationship and things are bound to turn deadly.


Falling for the Cougar

Army Captain Nicole Welsh’s premonitions of danger warn her more trouble is headed her way after her parents died in an unexplained car accident. Is it just her imagination that someone bad is out to get her? Her vacation to Galveston Island is meant to be a break from her awful job, breaking up with an unfaithful boyfriend, and getting over her parents’ deaths. But her best friend skips out on her, now a tropical storm wreaks havoc, she’s certain someone is stalking her, and she runs into a fellow cougar who might just be her salvation. Unless, he’s one of the bad guys.

Scott Weekum is a finance officer at Fort Hood, Texas, having every intention of having a good time at Galveston Island, and rescuing a mermaid from the Gulf, who he envisions is in trouble. Supposedly, the tropical storm is moving out of the area, so he should be fine. What he doesn’t expect to find is that the mermaid is also an officer from Fort Hood, she has premonitions like he has, she’s a cougar, and she believes she’s in danger. Since he’d just broken up with a she-cat who had transferred to another post and he’s all alone, and she’s all alone, he’s determined to spend the time with Nicole. Except she seems to think someone’s stalking her, and her paranoia is beginning to rub off on him. Is she in danger? He’s not sure what to think, but has every intention of protecting her, whether she needs his protection or not.

Cougar shifter Vanessa Vanderbilt is Yuma Town’s veterinarian, and though she’s attracted to sexy William Rugel, family physician, he’s on her least favorite list of doctors in town. After all, why wouldn’t he be when he thinks veterinarians aren’t smart enough to make it in medical school? Top that off with the issue of her being stood up twice at the altar, and by different grooms, no less!—so taking up with another cougar isn’t in the plans.

William Rugel has no idea why Vanessa, who he is extremely attracted to, won’t give him the time of day. But everyone in Yuma Town is determined to get the two of them together and he’ll do whatever it takes to prove to her he’s one of the good guys. Even take in a puppy because he knows she adores animals. So does he, but he hadn’t planned to get a dog to get a date!

It’s time for another cougar Halloween party—and since Vanessa had met her last two fiancés at Halloween parties, who knows what will come of this one!

Cougar Christmas Calamity

Cougar shifter Jessie Whittington plans to work on her psychic romance book before Christmas at the Whispering Pines Resort on the North Shore of Lake Superior, but peace and quiet aren’t exactly what she’s going to get right before Christmas.

Former army ranger Emerson Merriweather has returned home after being ambushed on a Black Ops mission, and now learns his uncle has died. When he meets his only guest at the cabin resort, he’s surprised she’s a cougar too. Before long, a blizzard hits, bear shifters wreak havoc, and he’s helping Jessie decorate for Christmas. Something he never thought he would be doing.

Jessie’s definitely the light in his life but he still has to take care of the man who set him and his team up during the mission. He knows he will be looking for Emerson to finish the job. Mystery and intrigue are the name of the game and things aren’t always as they seem.

  1. Oh I can hardly wait to start this book/series! I love Terry’s books and can’t see why this one would be any different. Terry is one of those select few that has the talent to transport you into her worlds and always leaves me “panting” for the next book. Doesn’t hurt that the covers are “drool”-worthy as well! 🙂

    • LOL, Cherri-Anne, thanks so much!!! For the cougar series, I wanted to have a couple since they are shifter romances. So writing the books will be as much fun as finding the right covers and titles. 🙂 Hope you love it! I had so much fun with these characters. Can’t wait to write the next one. 🙂 Thanks again!

  2. Love your wolf shifter books, I’am holding my breath for this next cat shifter romance. All of your books are just to good. I hate to wait for the next one to come out. Terry you are one of my top 5 authors.

    • Hey, Elizabeth, thanks so much! I’ll have it out by Christmas. I’m working on A SEAL Wolf for Sale right now, due to the publisher by June, A Silver Wolf Christmas by Nov, and want to finish writing The Viking’s Highland Lass. So will be working on the rest of Call of the Cougar after a couple of other projects. I can’t wait. I keep thinking about them. :)b

  8. Okay, thanks, Sue! I thought it did, but when I changed to a new website, I must have left it off. Will fix. I just need an SASE if in the US for bookmarks. Glad you are enjoying them! 🙂 And thanks for the reminder about the book marks. I need to picture them too. That was on the old website too.

  12. I am unable to find Cougar’s Mate in print form. Is it only out in “e” form? If only “e” form will it be out in print form? Thanks and please keep up the great work.

  13. Me, too, Ashley! Actually, Savage Hunger IS going to be produced by Tantor, so I’m really excited about that. The narrator has done some of Larissa Ione’s books, and I love her voice. 🙂 if the book sells well, they might do more. 🙂

  14. well when I went looking for cougars mate I got told by barnes and noble its a print on demand book which I can’t understand why with you being such a popular author I hope call of the cougar comes in mas paperback

    • Thanks so much for checking! I didn’t go with my publisher on that one, nor the next. The reason is that I can set my own deadlines, have much more say in the final outcome and unfortunately that means trade paperback instead of mass market. I’m already writing a ton of books for them, so I wanted to try something different and Cougar’s Mate has been highly successful. If I find enough time (I’m also working on a really popular Highland medieval series and a YA fae series), I’d like to start a bear shifter series. 🙂 I need to quit sleeping, though!

  15. oh bear shifters too can’t wait so is call of the cougar a trade paperback too and the ones in aug and oct going to be trade or mass paperback

  16. ok cool wonder if I can pre-order call of the cougar now lol I’m very interested in the bear shifters you want to write

  17. Not on Call of the Cougar. I hope to be halfway done writing it by the end of this weekend. 🙂 On the bear shifters, that will be fun. 🙂 I haven’t come up with a plan for it yet. 🙂

  18. oh please do I have the whole wolf series now all of the jaguars too and waiting on cougars mate in the mail as we speak can’t wait for it to get here if you added bears I would be grabbing them up as well I just love your books just got done reading heart of the wolf that came in the mail yesterday another cover to cover can’t put down like the rest of your books you are an awesome writer and I just love your books

    • woohoo, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! 🙂 I am working on Call of the Cougar, but *sigh*, have to stop to go to a conference shortly. 🙂 But having a lot of fun with the new one. 🙂

  19. i wish you could do a book signing tour in my state I would love it but alas might never get a chance to meet you other wise

    • You sent me a SASE also for book marks, right? So I have those ready to go. Just got back from a conference and going to another. So I hope to get them all out tomorrow. 🙂

  25. Yes. I had another reader ask for one. ❤ LOL For US address, to cover my shipping cost and the price of the T-shirt, they're $10. 🙂 I have one of A Viking's Highland Lass and one of A Hero of a Highland Wolf.

    • A check is fine. And that included shipping. 🙂 ❤ I'm just selling the T-shirts at cost + shipping. No profit. On the bears–it depends. 🙂 The 10 1/2" personalized bears are $26 plus shipping ($8). Add a sweater and they're $36 + shipping ($8). My prices are a little higher on the personalized bears on the website because all my costs have gone up on them, but for fans, I'm still selling the personalized bears at $26, which I've done for 15 years! 🙂

  26. just got my bookmarks in today. i love them. also what time on tues the 5th of august will the face book party be? 😉
