Romance Paranormal

Easy, Big Fella...

Zoo worker Callie Jordan knows something primal when she sees it: take, for instance, the naked man sitting at the foot of her bed. He's the same (naked) guy she saw after hours at the zoo. But now he's in her apartment, and just happens to have turned into a black-as-night jaguar. The average person would be in a blind panic; Callie certainly intends to be--once she finishes processing what this incredibly hot lunatic is telling her...

It seems Callie's visitor, the one who prefers skins to shirts, is Prince Rogar--from a place far, far away. Oh, and Callie is from the same place, has the same nifty shapeshifting powers, and is destined to be Rogar's lifemate! It figures the first hot guy ever to show a bit of interest turns out to be certifiable. Then again, Callie's seen Rogar's powers (plus some other choice things) firsthand--and testing her new roomie's powers of persuasion would be the ultimate walk on the wild side...

Re: The Jaguar Prince

LOL you are too funny it must be great to be able to think of things like that becouse I never could have, I'd have trown a rock at the bird to scar it away, the cat would have had learned how to play with the dog, LOL just joking but I love to see how other peoples minds work and yours is great.
(Vickie Hightower 10:02am May 6, 2010)

That is hilarious! It's interesting how ideas develop.
Marlene Breakfield 12:26pm May 7, 2010)

You have a funny imagnation. Can't wait to read about it.
Sherry Russell 8:02am May 7, 2010)

HI Everyone! I tell everyone it's all Karl's fault I think the way I do. Been married to the guy too many years. LOL
Karen Kelley 9:14am May 7, 2010)

What a great way to get ideas - I have annoying pigeons that nest in my garden every year. The noise they make when plying alone is loud enough but when they start coo cooing it grates on your nerves very quickly and is not romantic regardless of what you have heard. Can't wait to read the stories.
Barbara Hanson 9:18am May 7, 2010)

Sounds like an excellent series.Can't wait to read them.
Barbara Smith 10:26am May 7, 2010)

The bird, the cat, and then the dog. Who chasing who? And then the hot sexy men came along. HUBBA HUBBA WOW.
Kai Wong 11:19am May 7, 2010)

Great ideas! Next time I am in a motel with VERY thin walls, I will visualize something other than me killing the people making all the noise!
Karin Tillotson 11:20am May 7, 2010)

LOL Villian pigeons!
Y'all are so funny! Thanks for the chuckles!!!
Karen Kelley 11:22am May 7, 2010)

LOL, love how your ideas come about...
Colleen Conklin 11:33am May 7, 2010)

At least a move to the country would mean that there is more work to be done.
Blessings from a farmers wife.
Marjorie Carmony 12:11pm May 7, 2010)

this would be my beach choice!
Debbi Shaw 12:58pm May 7, 2010)

You have certainly delt with the "country" in a great way. What ideas! wish I could think like you when the birds,dog,kids start up around here!
Elizabeth Parzino 1:30pm May 7, 2010)

I was actually raised in the country LOL The work never ended!
Karen Kelley 2:18pm May 7, 2010)

Ha! I like how you get your inspiration.
Rachael Haas 2:46pm May 7, 2010)

This sounds good but as a loving mother I have to ask.... The noisy annoying things were turned into sexy heros and the innocent children were turned into, and I quote "rogue symtarians who were trying to kill impures"... Just hit me as funny, lol
Brandy Blake 2:49pm May 7, 2010)

Karen, what a funny post!! When I lived out by the country in California each day was greeted by sqwacking crows. Those annoying things have taught me to wake up early each morning. Grrr...
Armenia Fox 2:49pm May 7, 2010)

Karen, if you want peace and quiet don't move to the country. I've got youn goats who bleat everytime you step outside, a roosters, whose life mission is to crow from 4am till sunset. A dog who has waged a running war with the squirrels in the oak trees and all sorts of birds who call at all times of the day. Need peace and quiet, your not going to get it here. This series sounds interesting.
Maude Allen 4:45pm May 7, 2010)

Sounds like fantasy. Looking forward to checking it out.
Dorothy Swingle 7:06pm May 7, 2010)

I laughed at the I See Sexy Men (Hey, it's better than dead people. Very interesting read.
Mary Preston 7:24pm May 7, 2010)

Sounds inticing. Can't wait to pick up a copy.
Tracy Brown 7:51pm May 7, 2010)

I will have to give that a try the next time I'm bothered by noisy wildlife! lol!
Michelle K 8:02pm May 7, 2010)

What a cute post. Love it.
Just goes to show that inspiration can come from some very unlikely sources.
Carol Cobun 8:13pm May 7, 2010)

Hello Karen, Please enter me in your fantastic contest. I love entering and winning contests from FreshFiction too!
God Bless YOU, Cecilia
Cecilia Dunbar Hernandez 8:33pm May 7, 2010)

Now that it's spring even the birds get up early and sing about it. Then I get up and hunt for them out my windows.
Alyson Widen 8:53pm May 7, 2010)

Those pesky birds have gotten
me up at 6 AM the last two
weeks and darn if that aren't
still at it at almost 9:30 PM.
I so enjoy sleeping with the
windows open but may have to
give up and close them and
have the AC sing me to sleep.
Lisa Richards 9:20pm May 7, 2010)

I love shapeshifters!
Diane Sadler 9:27pm May 7, 2010)

Karen, I loved your article. You have such a great sense of humor. I am looking forward to reading the book. Thanks for the contest.
Cathy Phillips 9:38pm May 7, 2010)

cool read
Sagrario Vigil 10:18pm May 7, 2010)

Karen, I loved your article and am looking forward to the Jaguar Prince. It sounds like a great book and will definitely be on the top of my must read pile.
Julie Swaney 10:49pm May 7, 2010)

LOL. Never know what will inspire you. Thanks for sharing.
Cherie Japp 11:09pm May 7, 2010)

Cute. But it is true. You do get the
sounds of nature. Of course it is
mating season for our peacocks right
now. They are really noisy and I can't
hope they would fly away. They don't
bother me anymore, but I'm not sure
about the neighbors. My son is
threatening them with being Mother's
Day dinner. Then their noise sets off
the neighbors' dogs and ours join in.
The cows in the pasture join in and on
some days (nights) the donkey down
the road joins in. I don't even want to
know what type of shifters are waiting
out there.
Patricia Barraclough 11:48pm May 7, 2010)

Great sounding story...been added to the list of "To Be Read"...Happy Mother's Day weekend to you...
Michelle B. aka Koshkalady
Michelle Bauer 11:57pm May 7, 2010)

If it works, it works. LOL
Gladys Paradowski 2:27am May 8, 2010)

Karen OMG only you could have taken the
events of that day and spun it into gold,
a pure gem such as you did!
Sue Ahn 2:31am May 8, 2010)

Reframing is one way to resolve issues in your life. I too want to see beautiful men.
Lindsey Ekland 3:41am May 8, 2010)

How imaginative and the reason that I keep reading!
Joanne Reynolds 7:25am May 8, 2010)

I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date...but I showed up anyways and now have a new title on my wishlist!!!
Valerie Bongards 10:10am May 8, 2010)

Out in the country its those wonderful aromas that you have to contend with occasionally.
Heather Pearson 10:30am May 8, 2010)

This is wonderful, I love big cats, and when an author works them into a story, its bliss. This is fantastic, I can't wait to read it...
Cathleen Robinson 12:02pm May 8, 2010)

Hi Everyone---sorry I went MIA LOL Our son and d-i-l had their first baby, Cooper William Kelley, 8lb, 7oz, on the 4th. We came back to their house to help out. Let the spoiling begin LOL Rather than hearing the sounds of nature Cooper is letting us know he is here :)
Karen Kelley 12:23pm May 8, 2010)

I loved the post...I needed a smile to start the day off right! I can hardly wait to read the books that were inspired by a screeching bird, a horny cat and two idiot dogs!
Patsy Hagen 12:43pm May 8, 2010)

What great inspiration! I lived in LA
for 12 years and it really was a
concrete jungle. I now live in Ohio,
and I'm constantly amazed by the
variety of birds and animals. I've
had a fox and a red tailed hawk in
my backyard. Congrats on your new
MaryAnne Banks 12:44pm May 8, 2010)

I love hearing how authors come up with the stories I love most. I'm glad you took lemons and made lemonade.
Kimberly Murray 1:12pm May 8, 2010)

love the idea, sounds like a great read
Teresa Roberts 2:22pm May 8, 2010)

Someone once told us our backyard looked like an international airport because we have so many birds flying in and out. The bird feed is so worth the entertainment. The barking dogs across the street I can do without! LOL
Karen Kelley 6:13pm May 8, 2010)

Loved how to see the light side when the rest of the world would have been tearing out clumps of hair over those irrating birds!
Susan Lathen 10:18pm May 8, 2010)

LMAO... from annoyance to ideas... gotta love nature; and you have to take your creativity where you find it.
Donna Holmberg 2:21am May 9, 2010)

love shape shifter stories
Leanne Jacobson 12:40pm May 9, 2010)

My pup ran over to my neighbors...into their home when they left the door open and Peed on their couch :( I wonder if they will write a book about their crazy neighborhood dog! lol
