Ruthless assassin or irresistible bodyguard?
Tiger shifter Cruz Khala doesn't trust humans. He doesn't trust destiny either -- not even when it sends him the one woman capable of saving his tormented soul. But there's more than love at stake as merciless shifter forces gather on sunny Maui, intent on stealing a priceless jewel with mysterious powers. Before he knows it, Cruz becomes the last line of defense between pure evil and the sapphire -- and the only one capable of saving his destined mate's life.
Footloose and carefree? Not anymore. Jody Monroe, pro surfer, is a woman on a mission -- until an unknown gunman turns her world upside down. She escapes thanks to a stealthy, enigmatic stranger with haunting, yellow-green eyes who arouses all her fears -- and her desires. Cruz is a contradiction: gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective of those he loves. And sexy. Mouthwateringly sexy, all the damn time. Soon, Jody's life isn't the only thing on the line -- her heart is, too.
ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! "Magnum, PI" with a shifter twist (a smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifter twist)!
I had been reading regular romance novels for a long time when I picked up a paranormal romance novel and I fell in love with the genre. Since then, I have read a lot of Anna Lowe books and she still remains one of my favorite authors. She is a very talented and gifted author. Anne stories are always humorous and magical which entices and weaves a tale that will pull you into the adventures with her relatable and enjoyable characters.
I have read the previous three books in the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart series and I absolutely adore the continuation of this series with this book. Whenever I pick up a Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart book, I know that I am guaranteed a great emotional ride. The Jewels of the Heart is a thrilling series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story has its own jewel that comes with its own danger. The Aloha Shifters with their mates have the power to control the jewel and each jewel is calling to the other jewels. This book gives us the bigger picture of what all the jewels means to their pack. Each story has its own jewel that comes with its own danger. The Aloha Shifters with their mates have the power to control the jewel and each jewel is calling to the other jewels.
Lure of the Tiger features Cruz Khala and Jody Monroe along with the rest of the characters from the three previous books of the series. Now in true Tiger fashion, Cruz steals almost all of the scenes he's in. The other main character, Jody, is a professional surfer and a reluctant model. She is strikingly beautiful, carefree and a woman on a mission. But unknown to her, there are two assassins and one is Cruz. Cruz is a Tiger shifter who is graceful, ruthless, gorgeous, sexy with yellow-green eyes. He is also gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet he can be tender yet protective to a cat. But when it comes to humans, he doesn’t have any trust whatsoever. I do think you will fall in love with Cruz. He's irresistible with tormented soulful eyes that will melt your heart.
Get ready to have a few hot flashes when you read the love scenes, Anna has quite the talent for writing blazing hot sensual sexy scenes. She knows how to build the tension between Jody and a Cruz before, during and after they make love. If you can enjoy laughing and smiling while you're reading explicit sexual scenes, then you will enjoy the love scenes between Jody and Cruz.
I have absolutely enjoyed reading each story of the series. They are all exciting page-turners, packed with action, emotion, and romance! And as usual with this series- the steam is off the charts! The story has a depth of emotion which tugs at the heart. This book grabbed my attention and held it from beginning to end.
If I had one negative thing to say about Lure of the Tiger, it would be that it could have been longer. The ending felt a little rushed. But the series is leading up to the story we all are excited to read which is Sila's story. The entire series is one that just gets better and more exciting with each new story. Each book has kept me on the edge of my seat. If you enjoy reading Paranormal Shifter Romance then you will love the entire series- especially Lure of the Tiger!
