Off to Maui for a relaxing vacation? Hardly. Surfer Jenna Monroe is on the run from a stalker who lusts after her blood. Instead of combing the beach for lost treasures, she’s forced to venture deep into the terrifying world of shapeshifters. There, even the good guys are hard to trust — all except for the hot-blooded rebel she can’t get out of her head.
Connor Hoving and his band of Special Forces shifters were planning to leave trouble behind by moving to Maui, but destiny has other ideas. His whole future — and that of his brothers — depends on acing his new job as head of security at an exclusive seaside estate. But Connor can barely get his inner dragon to focus with alluring, off-limits Jenna around. Can this rebel dragon learn to play by the rules when his fated mate’s life is on the line?
The closer Connor and Jenna become, the higher forbidden passions blaze. The more they give in to simmering desire, the more impossible love seems. And the more secrets they uncover, the closer their enemies creep. Vampires and ruthless dragons lurk in the shadows, and it’s impossible to tell whose side fate will take. Only one thing is certain: great heroes don’t get to pick their destinies — only the choices they make.

He's flying over from LA when he meets, Jenna, who's on her way to visit her sister. They hit it off, then go their separate ways. But their paths soon cross again and Connor learns Jenna has a stalker, one who has red eyes in her dreams.

deb1210 5.0 out of 5 stars Rebel Dragon Reviewed in the United States on May 11, 2018 Verified Purchase I absolutely love Anna Lowe's books and this new series is starting off right! I love Connor and Jenna together! Their chemistry was off the charts! Their story had just the right bit of heat and sassiness! There is always a bit of mystery and intrigue to go along with the romantic journey! I loved the first Aloha Shifter series-Jewels of the Heart, and like that we get to see those characters in this series too! I listened to the audio book narrated by Kelsey Osbourne. She does a spectacular job in voicing everybody. I am sure it was hectic when big meetings occur and all these shifters are talking! I highly recommend listening to this and all of Anna's books! I can't wait to get my hands on all the new shifters stories in this new Pearls of Desire series! 2 people found this helpful
