Dating a Jaguar Shifter

Wade Patterson’s Testimony

Transcribed by Terry Spear


Have you ever considered dating a jaguar shifter?

We’re meat lovers. As a jaguar, that’s ALL we eat. No lettuce salads. But because we are human also, we do eat our veggies.

But if you want to win over a jaguar shifter, make sure you order meat lover’s pizza. A steak or two is good. Love fish.

We love to swim, so if you have an idea for a fun romp to a watering hole—lake, pond, river, beach, shower, hot tub, waterfall, we’re game. Water is great for fishing, cooling off, and… heating up.

If you need some protection, you’ve got it. Old boyfriend pestering you? Won’t be a problem. Even humans can sense when a jaguar shifter’s being territorial and doesn’t want the old game to make trouble for his ex. They might not be able to smell our hot-wired emotions, but they can see the predatory gleam in our eyes, and the ready-to-pounce posture that says, “Back off, buster, or else.”

If you want some kitty cat loving—the BIG variety—we’ve got it.

We’re wild as in like to visit the rainforest for a run on the wild side. Well, most of us do. A few are citified jaguars. So if you want someone who’s on the tamer side, we have some of those also. But if you want to visit the jungle, choose a wild shifter. We know the ropes and can teach you all the tricks of surviving in the jungle. That includes knowing where all the best water romps are, too. All work and no play makes the jaguar shifter one dull cat.

Like to dance? I know a great jaguar shifter club for dancing.

Did I mention being a little territorial? Even the pure jaguars are like that. But they claim a couple of she-cats for mates and a territory that encompasses both of theirs. Our human side dictates we have more monogamous relations. Not that a few don’t act more like a cat on the prowl. But the good guys like to make it a happily ever after for those with cat scratch fever.

Ever love to climb a tree in your youth? We enjoy getting off the ground and perch high above, watching the world pass us by.

In the big cat world, the she-cat takes care of her cubs. But you better believe male jaguar shifters are just as protective of the she-cat as they are of their offspring. And yes, that means changing diapers. Not that I’m faced with that prospect yet, but in the future, I’m sure of it.

And that’s about all I can say for now on the dating aspects when getting interested in a jaguar shifter.

One lucky commenter will win a copy of A Highland Werewolf Wedding, US/Canada only, just answer a question:

Which water source would be your favorite place to meet up with a jaguar shifter, and what appeals so much about it?




She’s being pursued by everyone, in more ways than one.

Even in an exotic world of humans, jaguars, and tantalizing creatures who shift between the two, Maya Anderson stands out from the crowd. Interest from human suitors is bad enough, but when male shifters give chase, the real trouble starts.


Who’s the hunter and who’s the prey?

Investigating the black marketing trade of exotic animals keeps Wade Patterson more than busy. When he and Maya both get entangled in a steamy jungle mission, it becomes impossible to tell who is being hunted or who the hunters are. Wade is desperate to survive this deadly game of cat and mouse. But it’s Maya’s piercing eyes that keep him awake at night.

    Oh my! Savage Hunger made me purrr, and Jaguar Fever promises to do the same. I want to meet up with my jaguar in a private crystal clear waterfall and/or lake. I wouldn’t be adverse to making the hot tub boil either! *wink*

  2. Terry Spear says:

    Teresa, you’re just the one they’re interested in!!! The big cats LOVE the water. 🙂 And with a mate, even HOTTER. I mean, better! 🙂

  3. Terry Spear says:

    Waving hi, Rhonda!!! It was so good to meet you at conference!! And thanks so much for hosting me once again!!!! I LOVE being here. 🙂 I mean, who could not when they have a vampire up above who is just too sexy??? Thanks, lady! And thanks to everyone for having me back!!!

  4. Carolyn McCanna says:

    I think to meet at the beach by the ocean running through the waves and sunning.

  5. Alexis Morgan says:

    Congratulations on the new release! It sounds fabulous. And just so the big cat knows, we in the Northwest have lots of rivers, lakes, and Puget Sound to offer a water loving kitty. 😉

  6. Tamara Hunter says:

    Hi Terry!! I’d love to meet my jaguar near a beautiful waterfall and definitely in a tropical area. I’m daydreaming about this already!

  7. Jacqueline H says:

    Thanks so much for being here, Terry. I’d like to meet up with my jaguar in a hot springs surrounded by a light early snow that our passion would, of course, melt away.

  8. Celia Breslin says:

    Hi Terry!
    I’d vote for beach/ocean for a meet-up. Nothing beats the West Coast beaches for me. 🙂

  9. G. Ogan says:

    Along the South Texas Coast near Padre Island is a secluded cove…no one ever goes there – except the shifter and I will. (-;

  10. Jess1 says:

    I would choose a pond with a waterfall. Double the fun. Congrats on your latest release! Enjoyed this very fun post with Wade.

  11. Bonnie says:

    Hi Terry,
    I just finished Jaguar Fever and LOVED it. I can’t wait for the next one.

    I would love to meet up with a Jaguar on the beach where they filmed Gillian’s Island. I went there about 20 years ago and it was called Salt Cay. It’s been sold since then and I have no idea what it’s called now. It’s a lot smaller than you would think and beautiful.

  12. Terry Spear says:

    Thanks, Jess! The pond and waterfall with David is HOT. That will be in Jaguar Hunt. 🙂

    Bonnie, I’m so thrilled you loved Jaguar Fever! OMG, how cool, Bonnie!!!! I wish I could go there. Perfect for a jaguar and a wild cat!!!

  13. Terry Spear says:

    Carolyn, yes! LOVE the beach and I can\’t think of a better way to meet up with a Highland wolf!

    Alexis, I LOVE the great Northwest! Dad was from Seattle, mom from Canada but her father settled in Beaverton, and I went to college in Portland, lived in Tigard. Which is why I set several of the wolf stories in Oregon. Love it there. So yes, lots of woods and water. 🙂

    LOL, Tamara, there\’s something to be said about those waterfalls!!! AND hot jaguars. LOL

    Jacqueline, I love being here! LOL, now that\’s an interesting notion…have to think about that further!!!

    Celia, yes, love the West Coast beaches. I\’m from Sacramento originally and when I was a kid, loved to visit the beaches and the lakes!

    G. Ogan, lol, I set my fae series in S Padre Island. I love it there! I never thought of the shifters making a home there. That is too cool of an idea!!!

  14. Mary Marvella says:

    You always know how to tell a story with bite in it!(grin) So HOT!

  15. Tiffany K says:

    I loved the “Dating a Jaguar Shifter
    Wade Patterson’s Testimony”. Thank you so much for sharing that! A water source that sounds nice to me would be somewhere in Hawaii, my friends keep going on vacation there and posting pictures, and the water is so clean and peaceful looking. It looks like you could get happily lost in it.

  16. Terry Spear says:

    Thanks so much, Mary! I do have fun with them!!!!

    Tiffany, yes, Hawaii would definitely be a great place for a jaguar to run–all that jungle and then all that water. And waterfalls! Yes!

  17. Linda Nightingale says:

    Terry… Jaguars … Yum .. bring them on. My favorite breed of beast and second breed of favorite car! Lovely to meet you and your characters. I write vampire paranormal but love shapeshifters.

  18. Linda Nightingale says:

    Jaguar — my favorite beast and second favorite car. I write vampire paranormal but I LOVE shapeshifters. Consider me on your fans’ list

  19. Terry Spear says:

    Thanks so much, Linda! I write vampires also. I fell in love with Dracula when I was a teen and wanted him to have a HEA also. 🙂 Thanks so much!

  20. Rebekah says:

    I think I would love to meet my jaguar in Hawaii at a watrrfall. Hawaii is beautiful but pretty tame. So I wouldnt have to worry about too many bugs and creepy crawlies that would detract from enjoying my time with him 🙂

  21. Terry Spear says:

    Yes, Rebekah! So true!!! And you could really get lost in the vegetation and no one would know what you two were up to!

  22. EllenBreen says:

    I love cats—a jaguar shape -shifter would be perfect– like my home team the NFL Jaguars But I’d meet him in upstatae New York in the Adirondacks—and we’d swim in Lake George –lots of forest with no people up there….caves too


  23. Terry Spear says:

    Hey, Ellen, that sounds like a total winner! 🙂 They love trees, and caves are perfect. But Lake George would be super too!
