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.

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.

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.

    • As many as everyone’s enjoying, Teresa! I have the story idea for the next one, with the Doc, book 3. I’m close to finishing Call of the Cougar, book 2, but right now just finished approving The Ancient Fae audiobook, and I’m working on Cougar’s Mate audiobook proof. I’m just really laughing! Poor Chase. 🙂 I have to have A Silver Wolf Christmas ready by Nov 1 deadline, so I intend to have Call of the Cougar done by December some time. 🙂 ❤ Been doing too many conferences!!! Thanks so much for loving Cougar's Mate!!! 🙂 ❤

  1. oops forgot to make my comment just loved a highland wolf Christmas sorry it took a few days to voice been in so much pain with my knee I forgot I love your books terry can’t wait for the next one

  2. Hi Terry, just wanted to say Thank You again for being at the Barnes & Noble store at Har Mar Mall in Roseville MN. It was great to see you. Please come back.

    • Ah, thanks so much, Sue! It was so good to see you!!! 🙂 ❤ I told Donna we need to do this again when they have pups at the wolf center. Maybe I can talk her into taking me to the island where they have wolves! 🙂 I had so much fun.

  3. wish you would come to barnes and noble in north Charleston sc terry now I have to go and order call of the cougar

    • I was there this summer, but didn’t have any way to get around to do signings elsewhere or I would have. You’re an angel! 🙂 Thanks! I hope you totally love Call of the Cougar! 🙂 ❤

    • Hi, Paige, they are, but they don’t know about each other. There’s been some overlapping in the jaguar stories with possible wolf shifters that might exist, and in one of the wolf books, they think a woman smells like a wild cat. 🙂 ❤ But nothing real blatant…yet.

  4. More More More!! I love these so much!! I can’t get enough of Mountain Lions and Sexy Cowboys. We need to name Chase And Shannon’s Twins.

  5. Terry, you have said that Cougar’s Mate and Call of the Cougar are in print. Do you know if they are “On demand” books, as I have not been able to locate them other then on e-book. Thanks and keep up the great work.

  6. Just wanted you to know I love your Cougar, Jaguar, and Wolf books though I’m especially partial to the Cougars and Jaguars! Cougars are my favorite wild cat followed by jaguars. I have both Cougar books and all of the Jaguar books on my Kindle and I’m eagerly awaiting more. I know you have other obligations but do you know when the next Cougar book might be released?

  7. hello!! how are you doing? I hope this finds you elbow deep in writing!! (when) will there be any more in your Cougar or Jaguar Series’

    • Writing away! Hope to have Taming the Wild Cougar done by Dec. Did you get Jaguar Pride in Feb? The next one will be out next year as a Christmas release in Oct. 🙂 Thanks so much! I’m thrilled you are loving them!

    • You are such an inspiration!! 🙂 I just finished writing She-Wolf Leader of the Pack and now am working on Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing. SEAL Wolf Hunting will be out on July 7, and I’m having a FB party with lots of giveaways for the new release that day. 🙂

      I’m also working on Taming the Wild Cougar when I get stuck on Billionaire. 🙂 ❤ And once I finish Billionaire, I'll be working on Jaguar Jingle Bells, title probably to change, but that's the Christmas jaguar story for next year. So lots more coming!

  8. When will She-Wolf Leader be available in Amazon? I have not been in FB in almost four years…

    I try to be!!

  9. Yes i have read all of both series!! ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM ALL!! Will there be any thing about the twins? that has helped them? the teens I think…lol

    • 12 months. They always come out in October, so Silver Wolf Christmas will be out on Tuesday, Oct 6!! Woohoo, and that’s my Christmas release for now. Then next year in October, it will be Jaguar Christmas and then hopefully the next year, A White Wolf Christmas. 🙂

  10. I noticed that a new Jaguar book, “A Very Jaguar Christmas”, will be out on October 4th of this year. However, it is only showing as a paperback. Will it be released in e-book format as well? I am loving all of your shifter books!

    • Hey, Darla, love hearing from you! Yes, they’ll release it as an ebook also. They are always behind on listing ebooks. 🙂 I’m so thrilled you’re loving them!!! 🙂 ❤

  11. Also, do you still plan on releasing another Cougar book sometime this year? I see you’re pretty busy but I’d absolutely love another Cougar book! I guess I should have asked the Jaguar question in your Jaguar section. Sorry about that.

    • oh, absolutely! I can’t wait to write Dan and Dottie’s story. I just finished edits on Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply and moved, so I’m just now starting on a book due Mar 1st. Loving the Silver Wolf with Brett Silver and Elsie MacTire. 🙂 I’ve been contemplating how I was going to start it. 🙂 ❤

  12. Hey Terry!
    I left a reply to your first comment but I don’t see it here so I’m trying this way. I apologize if this winds up being a repeat.

    Thank you for both of your replies and your sweet words. I’m so thrilled that “A Very Jaguar Christmas” will be released in e-book format. Not that I wouldn’t buy it in paperback! LOL It’s just that all of my Cougar and Jaguar books are on my Kindle and I prefer to keep them together. I did find a link I hadn’t seen before on Amazon. If you scroll down to about mid-page, you’ll see a link to click if you’d like to see a particular book in e-book format. Needless to say, I clicked it! Amazon forwards the requests to the publisher. I do enjoy all your Shifters, the Cougars, Jaguars, and Wolves and read all of the books but I have to admit the Cougars and Jaguars have a special place in my heart.

    I’m ecstatic that there’ll be another Cougar book! Wow, a move huh? That sure can take up a lot of time and energy. That’s great you just finished edits on “Alpha Need Not Apply”. I haven’t seen anything about “Loving a Silver Wolf”. When can we expect to see it out?

    Take care and have a fantastic day.

    • Oh, super on the link!! 🙂 Well, Loving a Silver Wolf will be out in 2017. We have to write the books a year in advance. I think it will be out in Feb 2016. Not positive. That will be Brett Silver’s story. I will have another SEAL Wolf story, and I’m bringing the white wolves back for A White Wolf Christmas in Oct 2017. I’m not sure, but one of the books is going to have wolves and jaguars in it. I think it’s the SEAL Wolf book. 🙂

  13. I’m sorry I’m late in replying, Terry. Yes, the link is really cool. Wow, you’ve got quite a few books going on! I So, you have to write your books a year in advance? That’s quite an accomplishment. I think it’s cool that one of the books will have both Jaguars and Wolves! I’ll definitely look for that one! Of course, I read all of the shifter books!

  14. First let me say long time fan and reader. I’ve never really thought to ask before, but just read double cougar trouble and have to ask are you going to write stories for Dan and Stryker? If so will they be out in 2017?

    Also side note I was reading some of the earlier comments and now I’m super excited for a book with both the jaguars and wolves. I can’t wait for the shifters to start see how many other types of shifters are out there.

    • Yes, Fran! And I hope to write Chet’s Christmas story also (novella) in 2017. Thanks so much. I’m so excited that you’re loving the books. 🙂 Loving the White Bear came also, and that has snow leopards, polar bears, and grizzlies in it in Alaska. 🙂 A Very Jaguar Christmas was lots of fun, and SEAL Wolf Undercover features wolves and jaguars also. 🙂

    • Thanks!! Yes, it’s coming in print. So sorry. I was behind on the white wolf book because of having to write a novella for the re-release of Heart of the Wolf in January, and two other books had to be edited. So I’m back at it this morning. It will take me two days to proof, then make changes, and the review process is a couple of days. Once I approve it, it will be about 3-5 days and it will be ready! Thanks so much!!! Sorry for the delay! I did get Covert Cougar Christmas into print, and Vexing the Highlander and His Wild Highland Lass are now in print also!! 🙂 ❤

  15. ractrakimkgslady you don’t need to own a Kindle to read their books, just download their app and read on your PC.

  16. Thank you so much for you wonderful books. They kept me sane when I and my brother was taken care of our Beloved Mom for a year and 9 months. She had a massive stroke that finely took her life. But when she would sleep I would read your books so I would not fall apart. It was very hard to sit and watch her suffer. I just wanted to say Thank You. You don’t know how much you brought so much happiness into my life for the brief excape I needed so much.

    • Omigosh, thanks so much, Caroline! I’m so glad my books helped you to get through that difficult time. When I lost my mother, it was awful, same with my dad. But nearly two years is a hard time to suffer–both for your mom and your brother and you. I’m glad she’s at peace and that my books helped you to get through it.

    • Hi, Susan! Hopefully this year. I have the workings of the cover and it will be a New Year’s story for him, but I want to write it this year. Just finishing up SEAL Wolf Surrender and I have another Silver wolf book under contract, but Stryker’s story is definitely on schedule! 🙂 ❤
