Dark Eyes’s lips formed the word No! as he leapt for her — right into the line of fire. A moment later, he grunted and slammed into her — hard. They both jolted sideways before bashing to the ground.
Jody yelped. Dark Eyes groaned. And, pfft! Another nearly silent shot punctured the ground by her arm.
For one horrified moment, Jody lay still, waiting for the pain to register. But then Dark Eyes took a raspy breath, and she realized she hadn’t been hit. He had.
And just like that, she charged into motion again.
“Get up. Get up!” she insisted, dragging him to cover behind the stone fountain that gurgled cheerily.
Outwardly, Jody was in control, but inside, a voice screamed. Oh God. Oh God. He’s hit. He took a bullet for you!Lowe, Anna. Lure of the Tiger (Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 4) . Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.
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.
Fantastic! I love these guys! Cruz is so gritty and intense while Jody is a typical sunny surfer. Their interactions are so well done. Thank you for another great job telling the story!
