 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?

I took the pictures of the cougar in Omaha. It was amazing that he was so close to the fence and stayed there. Usually jaguars are sleeping in spots hard to see or pacing.

Have a super wonderful day. I’m so excited! It’s up, it’s up, it’s up! And I didn’t make a mistake in getting it up there! I was beginning to wonder!

SEAL Wolf Hunting Releases on July 7!!!

Love these reviews! They’re starting to come in for SEAL Wolf Hunting!
It’s releasing on July 7, so get ready!

If only you made a different choice, moved faster, slower, something, anything to change the outcome of a past event that haunts you with regret; haven’t we all experienced that? Such is the conflict that plagues the novel’s hero, Paul. Once a SEAL, always a SEAL and failure doesn’t sit well with him. The good thing about this story is that the angst doesn’t bog down the story, it just helps a reader understand what motivates the hero to make the choices he does, and why he says the things he says. In the very first chapter, not only does a reader see that, but they get a good dose of the kind of humor and quirky shenanigans Ms. Spear puts her characters through. Their first ‘rescue’ mission occurs when they come home and I found it hilarious.” Long and Short Reviews


http://teaandbook-shauni.blogspot.com/…/seal-wolf-hunting-r… “Terry Spear is back with yet another delightful and delicious read. In her 16th Heart of the Wolf Series Book, Ms. Spear returns to the her Seal Team, to the last of the unmarrieds.” Shaun, Tea and Book Blog
So what do you get when you mix a seal with a wolf?

His Wild Highland Lass by Terry Spear
Lady Sorcha Barclay fled her brother-in-law’s castle because of his unwanted advances. An awe-inspiring circle of standing stones captures her attention and she captures the attention of the laird who owns the land.
Laird Ronan Daziel takes Sorcha to his castle to protect her and give her a home. Before long, he wants much more. He’s duty-bound to take a wife whose clan wishes an alliance with his. So why does he long to have something more? Everyone loves the lass as much as he does. But he has pledged his loyalty to his clan. Taking Sorcha to wife could lead to battle on several fronts. How can he wed another when she stole his heart from the first moment he laid eyes on her near the ancient standing stones on his lands?
The Highlander’s Charm by Eliza Knight
They should be enemies… But passion and love know no bounds.
Returning from battle to England, Samuel de Mowbray discovers that his two younger sisters have been stolen by Highlanders. Determined to save them from vicious warriors, he convinces the king to send him north. While there, he discovers that his loyalties are wavering and that a headstrong, feisty lass could destroy everything he believes.
Catriona Buchanan must travel north to ask for help in saving her brother and ridding her castle of brutal English knights. Unfortunately, to do so, she must trust in the thing she mistrusts the most—an Englishman. Minute by minute, the man who should be her enemy breaks down her defenses. There is something different about him and she can’t help but be captivated by Samuel, and his steamy kisses.
Heart of Stone by Willa Blair
Riding home after two years away, Gavan MacNabb encounters a lass and her deerhound in a moonlit circle of standing stones. Little does he know the garland of bluebells she weaves and the spell she sings will change the course of his life.
Marsali Murray doesn’t really believe the old wives’ tale that making a chain of bluebells by the standing stones under a waxing moon will bring true love, but she’s desperate to try anything to escape the boring, everlasting sameness of her life.
Gavan has already seen much of the world denied to Marsali. He’s ready to settle down. She is eager to spread her wings. Can they find what they need with each other?
Kilts and Kisses by Victoria Roberts
Since the deaths of her parents, Ceana Gunn has lived in the shadow of her uncle and his family. She wants nothing more than to see her clan the way it was when her father was still laird. But her uncle has other ideas. Ceana soon discovers that the only refuge to be found is in the last place she expects—the arms of her enemy.
Luthais MacKay wants to be left alone. His only interest is training his prized hawks. He certainly doesn’t have time to listen to the petty squabbling of his clan when his father travels to Edinburgh and leaves him in charge. But when Luthais discovers a mysterious woman on his lands, he’s determined to unravel her secrets…one layer at a time.
My Captive Highlander by Vonda Sinclair
Can unexpected passion and a little ancient magic turn enemies into lovers?
During a fierce storm on the west coast of Scotland, Shamus MacKenzie barely survives a galley wreck only to be captured and held for ransom by the enemy MacDonalds. Aided by the gift of second sight, Maili MacDonald, sister of the ruthless chief, senses the handsome, dark-haired stranger will somehow be important in her life. Compelled to help him, she insists on providing him food and a healer to see to his injuries. She knows she is daft to fall in love with this captivating warrior after one forbidden kiss but cannot help herself. With each visit from Maili, Shamus finds his thoughts consumed by the enchanting lass. Can he convince her to help him escape the dungeon and prevent the impending battle between the two clans?

I’ve been up forever, well, since 4:45 to take out the puppies, and have done so 3 more times since then, and haven’t been able to get to my computer to work, still unpacking from two trips and getting ready for my daughter and SIL to arrive for Mother’s Day and birthday celebrations. Sooooo, it seems like I’ve been goofing off all day!
But I wanted to share this before I really settle down to do more work. Then straighten some more.
mountain fall reflection (640x480) vib
Enjoy a trip to Scotland. I took this of a reflection of a mountain, a misty cloud overhead and the fall colors abounding.  It’s not my camera that makes the world so beautiful but the majesty of the place.
I have to say that we were glad to get home to Texas, which seems so drought-ridden at times, but compared to New Mexico? Green, lush, commanding trees? And yet New Mexico was just as beautiful and fun and interesting to see. And not all of it was without trees. Where we stayed had lots of pines. And even where the volcano was, same thing. But much of the area as we were traveling didn’t. And I kept thinking how forlorn wolves would be out there without water and trees. So I missed the water and the greenery when we were there.
I’ll have to show a picture of the areas I’m talking about later. I was panicking, couldn’t find any of them, thought somehow I had deleted them, then remembered I had to change out disks when I was on the trip! And I need to find the other one.  Now where did I put it to keep it safe so I wouldn’t lose it?????
Have a super great TGIF!

Thunderstorms and Rain? Or Just an Illusion?

Have you ever thought you were crazy? Last night we had a terrific thunderstorm, woke up the puppies and scared them. Both of them were barking their heads off because of the thunder booming right overhead. I don’t want them to be afraid of storms. So we settled in for a long winter’s nap. Well, spring bedtime, really. It was around 11 pm and I didn’t want to have my computer fried.

It poured. I could hear the rain coming down next to one of the windows. This morning, I expected to see wet pavement. My driveways were all dry on the side of the house. I couldn’t believe it! The grass was wet, but it can be wet with a heavy dew.

So I went to get the mail from yesterday and the telling place would be the front driveway. It has a couple of low spots that if it really rained, some water might still be there. And voila! Two big areas of wet stuff. Now, I feel exonerated. It poured rain last night and I’m not crazy!

Have you ever thought you were imagining something and it turned out to be real? Or you thought something was real and you only imagined it?

Happy Easter!

So Close...

6S7D0358 (640x587) copy mini roses cluster yellow roses in bloom (2) (427x640)
The miniature roses are in bloom!

I'm so close to the end of word count, but the way it always happens is I end up writing about 7,000 or more words as I'm finishing up the story.  But that means rereading and rereading to make sure that I catch all the changes I've made as I've gone along in the story, and explain any loose ends. And flesh out some of the scenes. Like in one, they were talking. And talking. And talking. Which is really important. But, I needed to have some action and show something of their surroundings while they're talking so that the reader still feels grounded in the story.

So things like that start to add up word count, but at a much slower pace. Which is why I still haven't reached it, but am getting there. 8900 words to go.

It always amazes me when I start a new book and I have Chapter 1. That's it. The title. And somehow get to THE END.

Off to whittle some more of the word count down. I can't wait until I have really written the end, and can read all the way through for just enjoyment.

Have a super great TGIF!

Beware!! April Fool’s Day!! All Fool’s Day!!

In one of my fae stories, I talk about April Fool’s Day and some of the outrageous things people have been doing for centuries to play jokes on their friends, family, and society in general. The fae were known to be tricksters, and so they loved to play tricks on the humans. But they also do so with their own kind.

What you need is to be cognizant that it’s going on TODAY. That if someone does it tomorrow, they are the fool. And that if you don’t get them first, they will get you.

My dad, historically, got flies in his food at restaurants. In his drinks. In a hamburger once, and when he opened it up to add ketchup, yep, extra protein. Now, when he was starving in a POW camp in Germany and eating wormy potatoes, the extra worms could be important nutrition. But not any longer.

So we got some plastic ice cubes filled with water and the usual: a nail, a fly, etc.

He got the fly ice cube. It’s hot in Florida, so we all drank water with ice cubes and of course he swore. He said that was because of the army. He was in the AF, but he enlisted in the army first. I was in the army, so he always said that anything bad he learned, it was because of the army.

My dad had a great sense of humor. So it was fun teasing him. He was a great tease back.

But you have to be REALLY careful, and only joke about stuff that would be so unreal, no one would fall for it. Then when they do, gotcha. But if it’s something that no one would realize it wasn’t true, then well, it won’t work.

So one year on my blog I said: I QUIT.

I had so many fans get upset thinking I was quitting writing. I figured NO one would believe me.

*sigh*

So even when you figure no one will believe you–I have deadlines up to a gazillion, sometimes it won’t work. And it can’t be upsetting, even if you believe NO one would believe you, because it makes an impact anyway. Like–an alligator ate my neighbor’s dog. Well, first, my neighbor doesn’t have a dog and second, I live in Central Texas and we have NO alligators, except at the zoo, and if they ever escaped, they’d never make it this far. I could say I gained 150 pounds last night after eating a whole package of brussel sprouts. No way could anyone believe that. :) And that’s no fun!

So instead of making something up, I just thought I’d share about April Fool’s Day, and not try to tease you.

On April 1, 1698, a lot of people were fooled into going to see the lions being washed at the Tower of London. So April Fool’s Day has been going on for a long time.

Okay, got to get off and write. I’m so close to the end, but still need to write several more scenes before I’m at the end.

Here’s Max all pink chalked up to be ready for Easter and putting out Easter eggs for the kids. He really doesn’t mind being all pink. Really. Even my dad wore pink shirts.


Pink Max

Of course, no way am I taking him to obedience training like this.
Have a great hump day!!!
