Review - Cougar's Mate by Terry Spear @TerrySpear

Cougar’s Mate
by Terry Spear

Goodreads blurb:  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?

About the Author:  Love, love, love romance, the paranormal, hunky Highlanders with their delicious brogue and hot kilts, so Terry Spear writes about those hunky Highlanders both in medieval times and as wolves in contemporary times. Jaguar shifters too! And young adult urban fantasy. And romantic suspense.

She grew up reading mystery, adventure, mythologies from around the world, ghost stories, the paranormal, fell in love with Dracula and Wolfman, and felt they needed loving too. Everyone should have someone to love. Which means her stories always have a HEA.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
***Author gifted me a copy for an honest review

The cover is awesome and sexy :) It is what attracted me to the excerpt up on Wattpad & of course that it is Terry Spear.

I have read most of the Heart of the Wolf series by Terry and loved them all.  I have the ones I haven’t read yet sitting on my coffee table as well as the Jaguar shifter books too.  As always there is never enough time for reading :)

Okay I fell in love with this story from the moment I read Chapter 1 on Wattpad.  I had to find out if this was a book, so I left a comment asking :)  She told me it was a book and would be out soon.  I was so excited because I love shifter books & Terry Spear, so together ***insert a girly scream here, I was extremely happy!

In Terry’s books, you never have to wait to be sucked into the story.  She had me at the first chapter.  I read the book straight through with tiny breaks for necessities. 

First impressions of Shannon, she is the type of girl who just wants to be loved but is always found by the wrong men.  I love that she is not a pushover because I don’t want to read a story about a fainting daisy that always need rescuing and won’t try to rescue herself.  I love my heroine’s strong and feisty and that is Shannon even when she is skittish.

Chase is a sexy man with a past that makes you cry.  It makes you want to save him :)  He would be a loner, but his friends won’t let him.  I love this!!  I love seeing people rally together and support each other when needed.  I wish it happened more in life especially with kids. 

All of this makes me love the shifter town of Yuma, and I hope this is a series because I want to read more about all of the secondary characters who I have already started loving.

I highly recommend this book to my shifter loving friends & those who already love Terry Spear!!  Can’t wait to read more!!!

Interested in reading???
