Happy Release Week!
Heart of the Jaguar #4
by Terry Spear
JAG Special Forces operatives like Golden Claw agent Melissa Overton and her partner, Huntley Anderson, are trained for the most dangerous missions in the harshest environments. These hardened jaguar shifters can handle any variable, even . . . babies?
When Huntley and Melissa find two jaguar shifter cubs snoozing in their jungle hut while on assignment, they have to keep the cubs and each other safe from ruthless poachers, bringing these partners closer in ways they never expected...
I am particularly fond of Ms. Spear's Highland shifter series. While this one was steamy, and some of the shifter scenes were fun, it read like a PSA...for how bad it is to buy and sell wild animals. Don't get me wrong, I agree that the trafficking of wild animals should be stopped, but I did get rather tired of hearing how bad people are. Not all of us fit that bill.
What I did like was that Melissa and Huntley are a team for JAG Special Forces. Don't you love that name? Because they are also jaguar shifters. They are hunting for poachers and are looking at each other a bit differently. They've both recently stepped away from their significant others, for assorted reasons. Suddenly, it seems like becoming more than partners just might be fun. They are forced to pretend to be a couple anyway when they need to care for some temporarily orphaned cubs--cubs who shift to human every so often!
Once again Ms. Spear takes us on a shifting ride where we find steam, mystery, and romance.
