Werecat Love by Janice Seagraves

 

Two years ago, Werecat Love was published in the

Entice Me: Luscious Love Stories

I had fun writing the story. Bits and pieces of the story had come to me a couple of years earlier and I wrote them as they were. Bits and pieces. When I signed up for the anthology, I got to unite the scenes into a single story. And it became Werecat Love. The Story of Jared the Werecat who falls in love with the human Morgan Brookhaven.

Blurb: Morgan isn’t expecting romance when she accompanies her friend for a week of skiing, but when she meets Jared all bets are off.
Jared has secrets that he doesn’t mind sharing with a special lady, and he hopes Morgan is that
special someone. When his past and present collide it’s worse than he imagined, and he’s forced to fight for his life.

This year, we are at it again with a new anthology. And I finished another werecat story which will continue the adventures of Jared and Morgan.

So please if you have a special place in your heart for werecat stories, keep Year of the Cat in mind for later this year.

Here's an excerpt from Werecat Love:

Morgan stumbled into the Mountain Lion ski lodge. Safe at last. She barely glanced at the rustic, rough-pine interior, as she limped past the homey furniture. Her goal came into view, the huge stone fireplace. Why the hell do I let myself get talked into these things? What was I thinking? I’ve never skied in my life.

She removed her soaked gloves, laid them on the hearth, then spread her frozen fingers toward the warmth of the crackling fire. Snow packed into the creases of her ski-pants, jacket, and boots, but soon melted in the glorious heat. God, all this so Joan can flirt with her Italian stallion.

When the circulation returned to her icy body parts, causing a pins and needles
sensation, she let out a slight whimper, then turned to let the roaring fire roast her rump. 
 
Morgan found herself staring into the amused green-eyed gaze of a man who sat on a leather chair. With wide cheekbones and a face that tapered down to a narrow chin, he was definitely worth a look. His long legs stretched out, emphasizing his lean build and athletic frame. He was attractively attired in hunter-green bib ski-pants, and matching sweater. His shock of bright orange-red hair stood on end. How unusual, it’s the same color as that cat I saw last night.

His full sensuous lips formed into a lazy smile. “You’re shivering as if you’re frozen right through.”

“Oh, I am.” She didn’t doubt he had checked her out when her back was to him. Morgan stopped rubbing her chilled behind, when she realized he watched her with unwavering attention. She wrapped her arms around herself instead.

“What you need is a hot toddy.” He straightened. “It’s excellent for when you have been exposed to the cold or had a shock to the system.”

Morgan arched an eyebrow. “Are you buying?”

Werecat Love was a great story! Glad you're continuing with the characters. Your inspiration for Jared is an adorable kitty:)

Hi Jean, Thank you.

Hi Paris, Thank you. Jared was completely inspired. I kept seeing a woman yelling "A cat!" And the rest just came to me as I wrote it.

My cat Baron helped a great deal. I miss him.

Janice~
