Cougar shifter Shannon has not had the best luck with men. Not only was her twin brother murdered after he got in with the wrong crowd, but her last three boyfriends were killed. After dating bad boys, she became involved with her latest boyfriend, who was a police officer. He and his two brothers, who are triplets, were dirty cops and involved in a shady deal. After witnessing her boyfriend’s death at the hands of one of his triplet brothers, Shannon barely escapes with her life. However, the two remaining brothers and their uncle believe she knows the location of the missing money that resulted in her boyfriend’s death. Knowing that she will be the next fatality if they get their hands on her, Shannon leaves behind her car and all of her identification as she escapes to Colorado. For over a month, she exists, barely, as a cougar. But when she comes to the rescue of a small boy who is on the verge of drowning, Shannon is spotted and soon becomes the target of an area wide search.

Chase lost his wife and baby daughter four years ago when his home was invaded and he wasn’t able to get there in time to save them. Now he is living in Yuma, Colorado – a cougar shifter colony, and owns a series of remote cabins that he rents out. Part of the time he fills in as a deputy, helping Sheriff Dan, who served in the Special Forces with him, along with the other deputies. When Dan calls him to help catch a cougar, hoping to tranquilize it and take it to a safe area, Chase cannot refuse. But when he locates the cougar and shoots it with the tranquilizer gun, he is startled to discover a nude woman in place of the animal. The last thing he expected is that she is a shifter. But when, barely lucid, she attacks him, he is soon seeing double.

After knocking out both Chase and Sheriff Dan, Shannon is finally captured by the double-sighted deputy. Given a choice of the special jail they have for shifters or staying with Chase, Shannon elects the deputy’s cabin. Finally able to get a shower, a hot meal and some rest, Shannon feels like she is in heaven, but how long can she stay before the killers catch up with her?

Chase finds himself falling for the wild she-cat, but knows she plans to run, if given the slightest provocation. Can he get her to trust him enough to confide in him so he can help her with her problem, or will danger catch up with her before then, costing him his chance at happiness once more?

An action-packed tale, COUGAR’S MATE, the first book in author Terry Spear’s HEART OF THE COUGAR series, is an exciting, suspense-filled contemporary romantic suspense that will keep you captivated right up to the end. The chemistry between Shannon and Chase is off the charts and the adrenaline is at an all-time high. I loved the small town dynamics with everyone pitching in to help keep Shannon safe as they try to find out who is after her and find ways to deal with her problem. Rife with suspense, action, passion, danger and romance, this story is a page-turner and is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. I enjoyed it immensely and cannot wait to read the next addition to this electrifying series.
