Another Theory on Cougar Term

Posted by Lizzie

Someone asked Parade magazine how the term "Cougar" came to mean and older woman. Here is what the magazine replied:

"One popular story is that the term first showed up in the locker room of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team in the late 1980s, describing groupies of a mature vintage," says language expert Patricia T. O'Conner. "The usage was popularized in 2001, when Valerie Gibson wrote COUGAR: A GUIDE FOR OLDER WOMEN DATING YOUNGER MEN. Now there are dozens of online services devoted to matching 'cougs' with 'cubs.'"

Recently, I saw a talk show on which the host mentioned Cougar to the guest who likes younger men. She became a little irritated, stating she "hates the term and finds it degrading."

What about you? Do you find "Cougar" degrading?

Cougars Prowl the RT Convention!

Posted by Sam Cheever

Nothing is quite so rife with urban legend as a conference. When you think of a conference, for any line of work, you think of wild nights in bars, tête à tête amoureux in deserted meeting rooms, and scandals galore. Conferences are a time for setting aside reality and wallowing, for a time, in possibilities. This is especially true for the Cougar.

Late night drinking in the bars is always conducive to hooking up, especially when embraced in the anonymity of a hotel, hours from home, habit, and responsibility. At a romance convention all the usual rules go out the window. Age doesn't matter, background is unimportant, it doesn't matter if you share any interests, other than those of the moment. And when you pull together hundreds of healthy, older women who make a living writing about relationships and S.E.X...and add a bunch of hot, nubile, young cover model studs trying to woo and charm them in an effort to win the Mr. Romance title...well...I think you get where I'm going with that! And, let's face it, at a romance's all just considered research anyway! hehehe

So get on out there and prowl ladies, conference season is just heating up. You have months of good hunting ahead before the Winter snows slow you down! Plenty of time to catch a sexy cub to snuggle in front of a fire with when it gets too cold to prowl anymore. #:0)

Happy hunting ladies!

We're back! We had a great time at RT. I haven't gotten my photos off the camera yet, and I'm working against two deadlines this week, so for my post this week I thought I'd treat all you readers and writers out there to three of my favorite cubs. They are delectable... Enjoy!

Caco Ricci, age 31, and the inspiration for Jack in The Cowboy and the Cougar.

Emmanuel Delcour, age 29, glorious and French, and fresh from Bravo's Chef Academy. In the market for a private chef? Inspiration for Blaise in Passion in Paris.

Miguel Angel Silvestre, the baby of the bunch at age 27. Red wine, anyone? Maybe the inspiration for my next Cougar story... Proposal is coming, Celina!

Cougars Prowling at RT!

Another Cougar Club release set for this week

Posted by Lizzie

I'm delighted to share that Butterfly Kisses is scheduled to release tomorrow at Aspen Mountain Press. The story centers around Susan, an artist who falls for her Tony, son's friend...and boss, and the issues their attaction to each creates for all concerned.
Question for readers: If your son brought home one of his hunky friends and you were attracted to him, would you act on that attraction?

Tony Roberts is a Wyoming cowboy who’s also the head of a successful New York law firm. And he has a secret: he’s had a crush on his favorite artist for years. When he finally meets Susan, his fantasy becomes reality. Problem is, she’s also the mother of one of his employees Scott Clarke--who’s also a good friend.

Susan Mayrah Clarke’s life has been fine without a man, so she’s unprepared for the sudden attraction to Tony when her son brings him home for Thanksgiving. Why did Scott have to bring home a cowboy that makes her wish she were twenty years younger? Unsure of what to do, Susan turns to the ladies of the Cougar Club group for advice.

Susan and Tony can’t resist the physical force that brings them together. Will the difference in their ages ruin their chance at love?
