On Yesterday’s Walk…

Wild grasses

Sometimes something that might be overlooked can make an interesting picture. I love wild grasses. As long as they’re not growing in my yard. But on a wilderness walk, they add interest to the landscape.

Now, I had Tanner with me, and he was soooooo good. Whenever I stop to take pictures, he lies down for a rest. Luckily, he didn’t see the herons. Well, and luckily I didn’t scare them off either.

But I glanced at it anyway, and saw the rainbow. I had to take several steps back to capture it, and rainbows move and fade, so I took several shots, hoping to capture it before it faded. These were so much better than the others I had gotten at a different fountain because the backdrop was so much better.

As soon as I start taking pictures in a spot, he lies down and waits for me to finish. I just step on his leash so he doesn’t wander off or chase something, and then snap away. Both of the dogs will do this together too, but my problem is when someone comes to walk by us if they’ve got another dog. So it’s just easier to deal with one, trying to train them to behave while on a walk.

pink-fountain-grass-and-fountain-900-018I love the pink fountain grasses, and figure they’ll begin to fade, so wanted to get another shot before they’re no longer pretty like this.

Okay, got to write. I had a million things going on yesterday, including the two-mile walk (beautiful, cool weather), and so need to get focused on figuring out the plot for the next White Wolf Book, did a lot of brainstorming yesterday on it, and keep up with the word count on Cougar Trouble.

Have a super, fun day!!!

Massive Storms Still Hanging Around, but…

After all the flooding.

Storms returned and it poured right after I went inside

Building up quickly again and we had another torrential downpour.

Caught a rainbow.

Love the rainbows.

Sunset turned the clouds a pretty pink.

The lower layer of clouds had all turned pink, but as you can see, we still have a lot of massive storm clouds in the area.

Massive cloud system still in the area when the sun began to set and turned them pink.

We have heavy thunderstorms for the middle of the night and some tomorrow.

But I’m fine with it as long as the houses don’t get flooded. I know that it will eventually stop raining and we’ll be wishing we had some again!

Have a terrific Thursday!

Oh, and here is Max–I told him not to go outside while I was taking a video of the rain. Just like a little kid.

A Rainbow in New Orleans?

I’m not sure how I ended up with a rainbow in the picture, but I did. 🙂

Working on A SEAL Wolf for Sale now!

Oh, and I found a poor injured man in the elevator. Which shifter do you think took a swipe at him? Don’t think it would have been a wolf. But a jaguar, easily. Or maybe a cougar. 🙂

Yes, in the elevators in our hotel, we had interesting posters. 🙂

An agent and a jaguar-shifter chase trouble, and each other, through the jungles of Belize…

Agent Tammy Anderson has a reputation: she prefers to work alone. So when she’s paired up on a mission with jaguar-shifter David Patterson—who’s only recently been released from jail—to say she’s less than thrilled is a understatement. Until she realizes that this sexy agent has what it takes…

Soon, what started as an “easy” mission to locate a missing jaguar takes the pair to Belize, where they’re chasing down two renegade teen shifters who know more than they’re telling. As the action heats up, can they keep their minds on the job and off of each other?

The basic theme of Ms. Spear’s latest adventure is best described by using Urban English: ‘when good guys go bad is when the real good guys are baddest’.

Think about it. If the good guy was never a good guy but knows all the good guy tricks, it’s going to take a better good guy with serious skills to take him down, right? The trick is to rope in the heroic type into committing himself or herself towards the cause. What would generate the dogged determination and relentless pursuit of the criminal besides basic duty? In this case, a serious dose of lust and sensual intrigue tosses out the fishing line but the hook is set when the threat gets personal, and the pursuit of justice takes on a life of its own. In Jaguar Hunt it’s a solid plot conflict with quite a few surprises in store for readers making it a real page flipper.

Tammy and David spark off of each other early on in the novel. A reader sees them testing each other, feeling out as to what kind of personality each of them has. It’s comical at times, always interesting and it fit in with the movement of the plot. Little things happen, dialogue is exchanged and clues are dropped here and there throughout the story until a reader can finally start guessing who the villain is. I really thought I had it figured out. The joke was on me. I was caught by surprise by a couple of revelations and I loved that.

Jaguar Hunt, A Review


David Patterson serves as a top level agent for their Jaguar-shifter species. When he discovers that his case to find and return a missing jaguar connects with Tammy Anderson’s case to find a couple of missing teens, he requests to be teamed with her. Then promptly gets himself thrown in jail. Leaving Tammy to bail him out and making a darned good first impression.

Tammy and David’s search leads them into the jungle of Belize where they are forced to work as a team and live as a couple. Finding the missing teens is going to be child’s play compared to dealing with the chemistry between the two of them. And finding the missing teens is anything but easy. Of course teen boys are teen boys no matter the species and these two are rather creative in their desire to stay lost. The tryst factor remains an issue throughout the entire book and believe me when I say, I wasn’t sure who to believe until the very end. Well done.

A great book. I feel that with each Jaguar shifter book, I fall more and more in love. Often I find myself comparing Ms. Spear’s jaguars to Christine Feehan’s. There are marked similarities BUT there are huge differences. Ms. Spear’s manages to keep her cats playful even in the most heated of situations. Which is perfect after all, they are cats.

My advise? Check out this book, it reads well as a stand alone, BUT I suggest you read the series, in order. Now there’s a shocker *grins*

Once again Terry Spear takes us from the concrete jungles of home to the wild jungles of Belize. There is plenty of danger and she keeps us in suspense until the last minute trying to figure out who are the good guys and who are the bad guys.
And of course, there is plenty of steamy shifter sexiness. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/922740118?book_show_action=false
