Okay, you’ve been eyeing that hot jaguar shifter and you want to know just how to catch his attention, well here are a few tips from Maya Anderson, heroine of my latest book, Jaguar Fever:
|1.||Don’t neglect your own needs to ensure your brother finds his mate. Oh sure, you love him and you want Connor to have a mate so he’ll be less protective of you. But you know what? It won’t happen. He’ll have his mate and still want to protect you from all the bad jaguars out there.|
|2.||Don’t let other jaguar shifters think you’re mated to your brother. This seems kind of obvious, but Maya ended up with trouble over this—see note above about her brother being overly protective.|
|3.||Don’t consider biting a human and turning him. Sure, last resort, if you find one who seems to be perfect mate material. But you never know how that might turn out. What if he doesn’t want you afterward and finds some other she-cat? Then you’ve created a monster. Maya didn’t do this, but she’s just saying…|
|4.||Be careful when getting hung up on a Special Forces JAG Golden Claws agent. They can be as overly protective as a brother and won’t let you dance with anyone else at a hot shifters’ club when you want to check out the competition.|
|5.||Do check out his kisses. Actually, once you kiss one of those hot jags, that’ll probably be the end of searching for another mate. Lousy kisser? Keep looking.|
|6.||Be sure you’re compatible. Learn if he’s as wild as you. If he’s one of those citified jaguars who never shows his wild side in the jungle, you’ll need to continue the search.|
|7.||Be really careful about social networking sites to search for that mate. Maya had the idea of trying to locate others of her kind, by putting a nice picture of herself lounging in her greenhouse in her jaguar form on their garden website. And guess who came calling? Zoo man Thompson, searching for his missing jaguar. Now, believe me, that led to a real mess. So you never know who you might end up meeting and not want to meet while looking for love in all the wrong places.|
|8.||Maya would never have considered a slumber party with a potential mate, but hey, it worked!|
|9.||Remember, alpha jaguar males, there are no betas, are territorial. So you might have to show your muscle a little to make sure he knows you put limits on his territoriality. It might not work, but he’ll admire you all the more for trying.|
|10.||Learn if he likes to swim. It’s usually a given. But jaguars love the water and if he’s skittish around it, he’s not a jaguar. Keep looking.|
And that’s just a few of the hints Maya can offer. Basically, he has to have a sense of humor, love of family, because mating her means he’s gaining a brother and a sister-in-law, he has to love plants as that’s what she loves to nurture, and take a walk on the wild side. All the other stuff is important too—loving the hot jungle nights, swimming, climbing, running, and even dancing…if she can ever convince Wade Patterson it’s safe for her to return to the jaguar shifter club. See, there was this problem…
Thanks so much for learning what YOU can do to find your very own jaguar mate. Maya says Wade’s taken, claws off. What would you do to entice one of your own?
