Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 4: Lure of the Tiger

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.

Lure of the Tiger Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 4
by Anna Lowe
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What a phenomenal story! First I must say I absolutely enjoy reading paranormal shifter romance especially ones that involves, Tigers, Dragons, Wolves, Vampires and my most favorite Bear Shifters, so this book by Anna Lowe I really love reading. I know I'm telling my age but this series remind me of Magnum P.I. with Tom Selleck, oh my, if this became a TV series I would plant myself in front of the television and not move until it was over and I would record it so I could watch it again. I'm always excited to read this series. This is the fourth book written in this series. It features Cruz Khala andJody Monroe with the rest of the gang from the three previous books of the ALOHA SHIFTERS. Cruz is a Tiger shifter who is graceful, ruthless, gorgeous, sexy with yellow-green eyes. He is also gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective but there is a problem he doesn’t put much trust in humans. Jody is a pro surfer, a very reluctant model who is strikingly beautiful, footloose, carefree and a woman on a mission. But unknown to her there are two assassin and one is Cruz. The story has magic, lots of adventure and humor. I love and enjoy the books that are written by Anna Lowe. She is very talented and gifted author, she creates enjoyable,lovable,sexy characters and magical, exciting worlds. Anne stories are always humorous and magical which will entice and weave a AWESOME tale that pulls you into the adventures with her relatable characters. I know we all just fall in love with a hero that's irresistible with his tormented soulful eyes that just melts our heart. Oh yeah the heroine we all appreciated a strong woman who is capable of fighting and loving along side her man but when there's danger around, she knows she can let her man protect her and still be admired and loved the love her life, because he knows she won't just rush into the fray and endanger them both by just hoping for the best. That's just the some of what I enjoy and love while reading Anna books. I really enjoy her love scenes she has a talent for writing blazing hot sensual sex scenes, she ramps up the tension between Jody and a Cruz before during and after they make love. I enjoy when you can laugh and smile while reading the sexual scenes even through its can be very explicit. Because this allows me a clear sense of the love between the hero and heroine and to enjoy it without feeling I'm reading porn. Anna Lowe stories JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling series set on the tropical shores of Maui. I have love reading each story they are exciting page-turner that's packed with action, emotion, and romance! Paranormal Shifters twist of course its has steamy hot, alpha shifters! The story has a depth of emotion which tugs at my heart. This book captured my attention quickly from beginning to end. Each story has its own jewel that comes with its own danger. The couples are made up a Shifter from the ALOHA SHIFTERS and their mate has the power to control the jewel and each jewel is calling to the other jewels. Cruz and Jody the story Lure of the Tiger. This leads the series into the story we are all excited to read Silas story. The entire series is one that just gets more exciting as we read each story they have kept me on the edge of my seat. If you enjoy reading Paranormal Shifter Romance then you will love this series.

Grumpy Cruz finds his mermaid! Cruz was a hard nut to crack. He's always been a gruff man that doesn't trust well. In prior books, he is always the sullen one that doesn't like or want to be around people. This book gave a new view of him. I liked this Cruz the best of all versions we have seen.
Cruz is holding on to his past. Jody is pure sunshine. No matter how bad the stakes or the obstacles, she shines and reaches out to the future by living now. It might be that opposites attract, Cruz's dark and stormy persona and Jody's bright and happy attitude. This book definitely brought out the best. The only sad part is that with one more shifter finding his love, the closer the series is to the end.

We also get a bigger teaser about Silas.. happy jazzy hands! There is enough meat on the teases to make you want to beg for Silas' story. Which I have been waiting for since the very first book.

While this is part of the Aloha Shifters series, it can be read as stand alone without missing anyt

Reviewed in the United States on September 30, 2017Verified Purchase
I don’t know anyone that has read at least one book in these series that has not been hooked. You can not help but fall in love with Silas, Kai, Boone, Hunter, and Cruz. Not to mention the wonderful women they bring into the story. This story is about Cruz. I don’t know about you but I have so been looking forward to reading about Cruz and the woman the author would chose for this grumpy angry tiger.

I did do the whipsersync with this book. Truly love the narrator. The narrator did a wonderful job and done a great job pulling you into the story. I did find though that the audios with this series does not always match up with the book. From time to time there where sentences that were reworded, words left out, or even a sentence is complete added. Does not take a way from the story though.

Cruz Khala was this sexy tiger shifter but he was grumpy, angry, and seemed to hate every thing, especially human’s. As we get to know Cruz we do get to understand him and can not blame him. The anger he carries around is slowly killing his spirit. He believes human’s were responsible for his parents death. To carry this around for years and long for the day you can venge your families death has to be a heavy weight to bare.

Jody Monroe was this amazing woman. She was a pro surfer and I just loved her free spirit. I also loved the love she had for her family. She would do anything for them even if it meant doing a modeling gig to make some money to help them out. I am sure she never dreamed she would be on someone’s hit list. She was the type of person you feel in love with, not want to kill.

The one thing I love about this story is that we get to see the battle between animal and man. Though Cruz and his tiger are one, they are two different spirits that share on body. We get to see Cruz inwardly argue with his tiger. The animal was the smart one in this story. He knew the moment he saw Jody she was not a killer. Cruz on the other hand was facing this inward battle.

I know this had to be a hard decision for Jody to make on trusting Cruz. I love how she went with her heart and her gut. I also loved how she really got under Cruz skin. He was finding it so hard to resist her.

There is danger all around. The jewel that Jody was suppose to do a photo shoot with could be a one of the Spirit Stone. This meant the danger Jody was in could be more serious then they had thought.

One of my many favorite scenes in the story was one of the photo shoots. Lets just say things get pretty hot and steamy. I sorry want to know more about that scene you will have to read the book. Trust me when I say this book has some many wonderful parts.

By the end of the book, though I love how it ended I was screaming at Anne Lowe. Please tell me that is not who she is going to put with Silas. No no, no!!!!

This truly was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

This was a book I have been waiting to read until I could get it in audio also. It was so worth the wait. It is well written, and I was anxious to see where the author would take this human haters story! I think she did an excellent job taking us on this twisty journey with these characters. The storyline is well paced, you immediately fall in love with Jody, but Cruz your first thought is how can this guy redeem himself! But it was a nice journey and the narration was beautifully done!

Rebel Heart (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire)

Uptown girl meets rough-and-tumble biker — with a shapeshifter twist!

All Cynthia was planning for the weekend was a quick escape to the countryside where her inner dragon can stretch its wings.

But suddenly, she finds herself making reckless, irresponsible choices and telling herself, Just this once…

Rebel Wolf (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 4)

The road dipped and turned, and just when Sophie was thinking of asking Chase to pull over for a moment, he hit the blinker and did exactly that.

“Okay with you?” he asked.

“Perfect,” she whispered, looking out over the ocean. A tangle of wild roses stood beside the pickup, and she could smell their heavenly scent. Beyond them, the Pacific stretched to a faraway point where she couldn’t tell water from sky any more.

Sophie Wilkins — bookworm and smoothie chef extraordinaire — has moved to Maui for a reminder of all the beauty and love in the world. And love is what she gets from shy, retiring, and utterly gorgeous man she meets. Chase is everything her lonely heart has ever yearned for. He’s mysterious too, with a raw, animal intensity that appeals to a wild side she never knew she had.

Chase Hoving is a wolf shifter born and bred in the wild — a secret he must protect at all costs. After a decade in an elite Special Forces unit, he’s tempted to turn his back on the human world and return to that quieter, simpler life. Then destiny brings him Sophie, who fills his soul with hope and light.

But danger lurks everywhere, from the private estate Chase protects, to the wilds of his homeland, and even in the seaside park where Sophie works. Worse, evil forces from Sophie’s past are ruthlessly hunting her down. Has Chase learned enough about human ways to win over his destined mate — and protect her from a terrible fate?

Rebel Lion (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 3)

Maui just got hotter with this exciting new series of steamy, suspenseful paranormal romance!

“You must be Wendell,” the woman said.

He blinked. It sounded like she didn’t remember him either. “Dell. Dell O’Roarke.”

The woman nodded and introduced herself. “Anjali Jain.” Then she nodded down to the baby nestled in her arms. “This is Quinn.”

She let a second tick by, and Dell’s mind went into a tailspin, trying to puzzle out the hint. Quinn?

Finally, the woman dropped the bombshell. “She’s named after her dad.”

All the air whooshed out of Dell’s lungs. That wasn’t his baby. It was his brother’s.

He expected sheer relief, but all he felt was disappointed emptiness. A stab of jealousy that it was his perfect brother who’d produced that perfect baby and not him.

“Quentin?” he whispered.

The woman nodded sadly and cuddled the baby close.

A shocked little gasp made it past Tim’s lips, and Connor looked surprised, too. They quit glaring at Dell, and he could sense the same thought rushing through everybody’s mind.

Quentin was the good guy. The hero. A man who did his family proud. In other words, a model lion. Quentin wasn’t the type to knock up a girl and leave her on her own. All the messing up, he left to Dell.

Not this time, Dell’s inner lion murmured, lashing its tail. Not this time.

Lowe, Anna. Rebel Lion (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire Book 3) (p. 16). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

Lion shifter Dell O’Roarke has never been serious about life, but life is about to get serious with him. The beautiful stranger who’s just arrived in Maui isn’t just looking for anyone — she’s looking for him. And that’s not just any surprise she’s brought along — it’s a baby who looks a hell of a lot like Dell. Soon, he discovers there’s more at stake than his lifestyle as a swinging bachelor. Vengeful shifters are hot on the stranger’s heels, making Dell wonder… Are they after the woman, the baby, or him?

Ad executive Anjali Jain hasn’t taken a vacation in years — and she sure isn’t on vacation now. She’s simply keeping a promise, and then she’ll get back to climbing the corporate ladder. But there’s nothing simple about taking care of a baby — or handing that baby off to a handsome, mysterious stranger who feels like a long-lost friend. Easygoing Dell isn’t her type, but the more he reluctantly reveals of his hidden, soulful side, the deeper she falls in love — and the more mysteries she discovers. How can one man possibly awaken so many lusts and desires at the same time? What evil forces lurk behind the brutal murder of her best friend? And why does she have the feeling there’s something not quite human about the murderers — or about Dell?

Lure of the Fox (Aloha Shifters – Jewels of the Heart #6)

Destiny only puts events into motion. The rest is up to you

Jake tilted his head. New hire?

Kai chuckled. “I know what you’re thinking. We know how important trust is. That’s why we hired you — and only one other person. You should feel honored, man.”

“You’re the perfect man for the job — and so is she. Even if she’s not a man.” Boone grinned.

Jake froze. She?

Brisk footsteps sounded behind him, and alarms went off in Jake’s mind. His heart pounded in one of those oh, shit moments he’d experienced in combat — or more accurately, in the split second before an explosive detonated and the shit hit the fan.

“Perfect timing,” Tessa called out. “Lunch is ready, and you can meet Jake.”

The even stride broke off abruptly. “Meet who?” “Aw, come on. You know Jake, right?”

Boone banged him on the shoulder and motioned toward the newcomer.

Jake turned slowly, totally tongue-tied. This wasn’t happening. It couldn’t be.

Desert fox shifter Ella Kitt has no problem risking her life — but never, ever her heart. Not that she expects to do either when she flies to Maui to help her Special Forces comrades with an easy security job. Or maybe not so easy, because she’s forced to work — and live — in close quarters with smoking hot army hero, Jake McBride. Jake isn’t just the one-night stand who makes her scarred heart flutter and her fox’s tail wag — he’s also a human, totally off-limits to shifters of her kind.

Head over heels in love? Not Jake McBride. It’s just that he can’t shake Ella out of his mind — or his dreams. But when destiny reunites him with his kick-ass lover, he can’t deny the attraction any more. There’s something powerful and alluring about Ella — plus a hidden, sensual side he longs to set free.

At the same time, mystery surrounds Ella and Jake’s new employers at Koa Point. How exactly can a group of Special Forces vets afford to live on an exclusive oceanfront estate? What deadly enemy is closing in on their sun-kissed corner of paradise? And is that enemy targeting someone at the estate — or targeting Jake?

Fantastic finish to this series. I loved the tension between Ella and Jake. Fabulous choice of gemstones for the keystone gem. Now I can’t wait for the next series to begin!

Love of the Dragon (Aloha Shifters – Jewels of the Heart #5)

Dragons, duty, destined mates, and a deadly rival…

“I didn’t ask what you were taught to love. I asked what you love.”

His eyes sparkled, and she gave herself a bonus point. Was she the first to take the trouble to understand the real him? He looked out over the vast Pacific.

“What do I love? Koa Point. The people as much as the place.” He lifted a hand and absently drew a curve in the air. “I love flying at night. Pushing against the trade winds, then gliding home.”

Home. The word had a yearning, wistful quality that made her wonder what need this luxury estate failed to fulfill.

Lowe, Anna. Love of the Dragon (Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart Book 5) (p. 71). Twin Moon Press. Kindle Edition.

Silas Llewellyn, the last of a once-mighty dragon clan, doesn’t have time for anything but work and duty. He certainly doesn’t have time for love — not with a ruthless enemy plotting to destroy everything he holds dear. When a priceless diamond — one of the legendary Spirit Stones — surfaces in New York, Silas knows the jewel is nothing but trouble…just like the alluring woman who refuses to relinquish the gem.

Bartender Cassandra Nichols never asked to inherit a mysterious diamond, and she really never intended to come between two warring dragons. But with one near-miss escape after another, she has no choice but to choose sides. Before she knows it, she’s whisked by private jet to an oceanfront estate in Hawaii for her own “protection.” Is the enigmatic Mr. Llewellyn just another billionaire dragon who thinks he can claim anything he wants? Or is there more to the soulful stranger than meets the eye?

This has to be the best one yet. I loved the interactions between everyone. The battle between the dragons was terrific. More, we want more!

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!

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!

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.

Anna Lowe. Lure of the Bear (Kindle Locations 280-291). Twin Moon Press.

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!
