As an animal advocate who fosters and adopts from a local shelter, and having the tiger preserve PAWS near my hometown, I felt inspired to include large breed felines in my newest contemporary romance where pain of the past is healed by the magic of love.
Have you ever rescued a feline? There’s something magical that happens when holding a newborn kitten—the desperate mewls as the blind fur-ball roots, discovers, and, finally, latches onto the rubber nipple, pumping tiny paws against the bottle top. I must admit my nurturing instinct is quite fierce. Today, I’d like to thank Cindy Carroll for letting me share two animal rescue stories, one real and the other fiction.
After ten years, tiger preserve owner Bailey Yant never thought heartbreaker Tucker Pierce would return to Safe Haven. With a hundred-year-old feud between the Pierce and Yant families escalating, and despite a mystical lovers’ rock stirring memories of their forbidden love, she’s walled up her heart tighter than her sanctuary. When her prized tiger trespasses onto the Pierce’s hunting range, and poachers threaten not only her tiger’s safety but the livelihood of her preserve, will Bailey open her heart and trust Tucker in time to save her endangered Bengals?
At seventeen, Tucker Pierce fell in love with Bailey’s strength the day he’d pulled her from the river and promised to make her dreams come true. However, to keep Bailey safe from his abusive father, he risked everything—and in the process lost her to another man. For ten years, he’s kept his reason for leaving Safe Haven secret, but he can’t forget the promise he made to her or who his heart belongs to. After finding the widowed Bailey standing on their special rock, will he finally convince her to trust he’s a man of his word?
Like Bailey, I’m hooked on felines and happily-ever-after endings. Meet Lucky, one of my rescued cats.
Ten years ago, this calico arrived at a local shelter ready to deliver a litter. She’d contracted a cold, but continued to purr through her sniffles. However, scribbled on her paperwork attached to her cage, read: Euthanasia – give dog dosage. I knew what that meant…I had to do something fast. I raced to the bank to get money for her adoption fee, battled the lunch crowd driving back to the shelter, and returned to find—She’d given birth to a litter of three!
I fostered the bunch. Lucky received IV fluids for two weeks and I bottle fed the kittens. Lucky has been with me ever since. She’s sweet and loving and enjoys hiding out in the flower garden, doing what cats do.
Fortunately, Lucky was, well, lucky. A Promise Worth Remembering was inspired by my experience and I want to do more to help larger breed felines. A portion of the earnings from this eBook will be donated to help the tigers at PAWS, located in San Andres, California. To adopt a tiger visit PAWS online.
Much thanks goes to Cindy Carroll for giving me the opportunity to share Lucky’s story and A Promise Worth Remembering.
