Please welcome my special guest - Natalie Dae. She's going to discuss her recent release, Black Cougar Curse, co-authored with Tess MacKall. Take it away, Natalie........
When writing Black Cougar Curse with Tess MacKall, I discovered something. Although imagination is amazing and I can usually stretch myself into “seeing” something I’ve never actually seen, I knew next to nothing about mountainous areas. Hmm. See, I’m a small town girl who has only seen mountains from a distance or in pictures. To me they’re something on the horizon, these big old points of rock that look fab jutting into the sky. But Black Cougar Curse is set in the mountains, and it soon became clear that I had no clue what I was talking about.
Thank goodness for Tess. She knows her mountains, knows the terrain, the weather patterns, everything, so when I wrote about our heroine, Lucia, plodding along doing whatever she was doing, and I described the area…I got it totally wrong.
Bless me, for I had sinned. I hadn’t researched. Of course, Tess fixed my silly mistakes, explained what mountainous areas were like, and you know, I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. I think it’s one of those things where I’d have to go there to understand. I couldn’t comprehend that although mountains may look like they’re just these big rocks plonked on the ground, they’re not. Well, they say you learn something new every day, and I learned a whole lot co-authoring with Tess!
Blurb: Deep in the mountain wilderness, Lucia Chavez searches for closure to her father’s death, and the mythical black cougar he sought. Drop-dead sexy Cherokee Indian guide Sam Starr knows more than he’s telling. After he saves Lucia from being swept away in a mudslide, the bath they both need turns steamy indeed. Sam and Lucia are living proof that near-death experiences can bring two people closer together—they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Amidst danger and mystery, Sam and Lucia explore the lust that burns between them. If their desire gets any stronger it could bring down the mountains. Ancient secrets hold the key to their unbridled sexual need. Was their passion written in the stars?
One man. One woman. A curse that binds them—and could tear them apart.
