When a woman becomes involved with a much younger man, she is known as a “cougar.” Older women hooking up with younger men intrigue us. What is their story? Does age really matter? Is she looking for a fountain of youth and is he just arm candy? Could he be out to take advantage of her? Or did she get lucky and find the love of her life? Authors from across the U.S. submitted fiction stories about cougars written for women who enjoy a good story with-out sexually explicit content or involving underage men. A Shaker of Margaritas: Cougars on the Prowl includes twenty-two captivating stories with boomer protagonists. Some of the stories are humorous while others are romantic—often with complications. Boomer women were raised during an era when women didn’t do what was expected, especially in relationships. Seven-teen million baby boomer women are single. The older the boomer, the less chance of finding an eligible man in her age group. Expanding their “hunting” grounds to include younger men earned these women the title of cougar. Today’s women are independent and don’t always need a man to support them financially. This opens up possibilities they may not have considered when they were younger. These delightful stories will give you a glimpse into some of the nuances of cougars and cubs. What the stories tell us is that cougars aren’t necessarily predatory and, instead, may be vul-nerable. Like all relationships, cougars may have found the per-fect mate, or realize they are mismatched. Age differences can be irrelevant, or deal breakers. Some of the cougar stories hold surprises and all relationships may not be what they seem to be. Pour yourself a margarita, prop up your feet, and enter the world where a woman is confident enough to pursue a man re-gardless of how much younger he is, and smart enough to know if a cougar/cub relationship is the correct choice for her.
