Lure of the Tiger (Aloha Shifters – Jewels of the Heart #4)

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!

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!

Lure of the Bear (Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart #3)

Secrets. Fears. Burning desires. A bear shifter willing to risk everything for love.

They stood facing each other for a full minute, speechless. Any second, Hunter figured, his brief stint in heaven would be over — just being close to Dawn was heaven — so he imprinted the moment onto his mind. A wisp of hair had strayed out of her single braid, and the sea breeze twirled it exactly the way he fantasized about doing himself. The sun shone from high overhead, casting her face into smooth fields of shadow and light. When her gaze wandered to his chest then snapped back to his eyes, her throat bobbed with a tiny swallow.

Hunter gulped, too, because it was happening again. That magical aura that overwhelmed him every time he came close to his mate. The sensation that rose out of nowhere and wound around the two of them, locking the outside world away. The hum of passing cars, the scratch of insects in the surrounding scrub — all sound faded until the only thing Hunter heard was the beat of his heart. All he saw was the faint rise and fall of Dawn’s shoulders with each deep breath. Her face was bright and clear, but everything else grew blurry, as if the sun was slowly turning a lens and focusing all its light on her.

This is your mate. A whisper came from somewhere deep in the earth. This is your destiny.

Dawn’s eyes shone brighter, and she leaned forward slightly.

She needs you as much as you need her, the voice said, coaxing him along.

There’s not much that can get this grizzly shifter worked up — except a threat to the woman he has secretly loved for years. Then, all bets are off, and he’s willing to risk anything — including the most closely guarded secret of his lonely shifter soul.

Trust issues? Officer Dawn Meli has a few. She’s not ready to rely on any man — especially one who can turn into a raging beast. But strong, silent Hunter, with his steady voice and soulful eyes, calls to something deep in her scarred soul. So much so, that she’s dangerously tempted to let her wild side free. At the same time, she has other problems to concentrate on, what with a valuable gem, a celebrity wedding, and a tropical storm all converging on Maui at the same time. Hardly the time to give in to simmering desire — even if destiny has different ideas.

Be Still My Beating Heart! Another great story from one terrific writer! There were times I wanted to stand up and cheer for this couple. There were also times when I wanted to shake them. Wonderful!

Lure of the Wolf (Aloha Shifters – Jewels of the Heart)

She treaded water, trying to catch her breath — and to make sense of it all. But her mind was hazy, and her memories were a jumbled mess. Where was she? What happened?

The loose shirt she’d been wearing floated around her, restricting her arms, so she pulled it over her head and cast it aside. Floating was easier without it, but still, it was an awfully long way to land.

So swim. Just swim. One easy stroke after another.

She wanted to protest, but her arms were already obeying the inner command, as if that were her mother begging her.

Don’t think, honey. Just swim.

The moon rippled over the water. The hum of the yacht’s engine faded away, and an eerie peace settled over the ocean.

Swim, honey. The way you used to go all the way across the lake.

That lake, wherever it was, was little more than a faint memory. And heck, this was no lake.

You can do this. One stroke at a time.

The ocean rose and fell with the long, lazy rhythm of the swell, and she imagined that it was cheering for her, too.

You can do it. One stroke at a time.

Nina only has the vaguest memories of who she is or why two men tried to kill her one terrifying night. All she knows is how quickly she’s falling in love with her rescuer — a man with secrets of his own. With her, he’s kind, gentle, and fun — but there’s a ferocious, animal side to Boone and the group of Special Forces vets he shares an exclusive seaside estate with. Can Boone help her uncover the past before the killers catch up with her? Or will an unexpected twist of fate steal her only chance at true love?

If fate were to come knocking on the door of Boone Hawthorne’s beach bungalow, he’d shove it right back into the sea — especially if it started whispering any nonsense about destined mates. But one night, a woman washes up on his private stretch of beach. Before the wolf shifter knows it, he’s breaking every personal rule for her and making promises he’s not sure he can keep. Investigating Nina’s past means crossing paths with a powerful archenemy, cutthroat criminals, and a ruthlessly selfish ex-lover who will stop at nothing to get Boone back in her bed. Can he solve the mystery of Nina’s identity while protecting her — without risking his own heart?

Boone and Nina are such a great couple. I genuinely enjoyed reading their story. And seeing how things in the overall story arc are developing just makes it better. The descriptions of the location make me wish I could live there!!!

Lure of the Dragon (Aloha Shifters – Jewels of the Heart)

Nothing is forbidden to this elite corps of shifter bodyguards and private investigators…except falling in love.

“What are you doing here?” he asked.

She shook her mind back into focus and asked herself the same thing. A gentle sea breeze kissed her cheeks, reminding her where here was. Maui. A speck of an island in the middle of the Pacific. Would she be safe here?

“Ella sent me. She said to come to Koa Point and ask for help. She said to explain what happened.”

“And what might that be?”

“I was attacked by Damien Morgan. Last night, in Phoenix.”

Lowe, Anna. Lure of the Dragon (Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 1) (p. 4). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition

Good dragons? Bad dragons? Twenty-four hours ago, private chef Tessa Byrne didn’t know about the terrifying world of shifters. Now she knows too much, like the fact that a ruthless dragon lord is determined to claim her — forever. Tessa flees to Maui, where sunny skies, swaying palms, and a handsome stranger conspire to play tricks with her heart. Can she truly trust Kai Llewellyn and his band of battle-hardened shapeshifters to save her from a gruesome fate?

Don’t trust a human, and never, ever fall in love with one. Those are lessons Kai learned the hard way. But Tessa is different. Her emerald eyes mirror the mysterious pendant she wears, and her flaming red hair makes his heart race. Is his inner dragon just greedy for a new kind of treasure, or is Tessa his destined mate?

Fabulous as always! Another home run! Love the tie back to the Twin Moon Pack! I was gifted an advance copy which I loved so much, I just had to grab it from KU as well. Well Done!
