BEST SELLING SUSPENSE NOVEL
Downloaded more than 50.000 times!
 
The year is 1983. 
Christian is 22 years old when he leaves his home in Denmark to spend a year in Florida with a very wealthy family and go to med-school. A joyful night out with friends is shattered by an encounter with a savage predator that changes his life forever. Soon he faces challenges he had never expected. A supernatural gift he has no idea how to embrace. A haunting family in the house next door. A spirit-filled girl who seems to carry all the answers. An ancient secret hidden in the swamps of Florida. One life never the same. One love that becomes an obsession. Two destinies that will be forever entangled.

Savage is a thriller with some language, violence, and sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up. It is the first in a family saga that covers three decades of the character's lives. The sequel Broken is also available now.
Praise for Savage
"This book will really tug at your heartstrings" - Concise Book Reviews
 
"I really really like this book because not only was it a refreshing take on what would seem like a very familiar genre but it gives a retrospective male voice which is very unique in the paranormal romance genre (...) a huge congrats for Ms. Rose for creating such a fantastic novel." - Sky Rose Reviews
 
"I LOVE THIS BOOK. ITS MARVELOUS. ONCE I STARTED TO READ IT I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. BEST BOOK I READ." - Review from Goodreads
 
"The story was charming and yet very realistic. Thank you very much for that, Willow Rose!" - Books Cats and Coffee.
 
"I really enjoyed this one. Willow Rose has managed to craft a story that both keeps you interested and guessing all at the same time. It was a nice break from the usual, girl meets boy, boy is a werewolf kind of paranormal romance."  
- Wolf Majick Reviews
 
"I have to say I really did enjoy this book (...) Savage is a very interesting book with good characters and gripping situations." - Library Mosaic Reviews 
 
"Wow... Im a little stunned right now to be honest.. because the lovely Willow Rose has actually done what I didn't really think was possible anymore. Stun me so much that I actually have to think about the message of the book (...) this book struck a chord in me that I think we all need to reflect on (...)  Splendid writing, adorable characters and an ending that will leave you wanting more ( I know I did) !" 
- Review from Goodreads.com
 
"I have to say that this was the best book I have read in a long time. I simply loved the characters and the storyline. It is a very beautiful book with wonderful people (...) To anyone who likes a good book I'll just say: get this one! I promise you won't regret it."
- Review from Goodreads.com
 
"I quickly became immersed in the story and had a difficult time letting go the few times I had to set my kindle aside in order to take care of some pressing chores. (...) I loved the voice of Christian; it was fascinating watching his character grow and become stronger as he faced many trials. Several times, the decisions he makes become defining points in his life. This is an adventure story with romantic elements, but it also does not shy away from delving into deeper contemplation of issues most of us have to face at one time or another. That's not say it comes across as sanctimonious or preachy, because that is just not the case. The swamp scenes were my favorite. I had the action perfectly choreographed in my head as I read those. Savage should appeal to older teens and mature readers, too". - Night Owl Reviews

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Read the full review (with spoilers) in Night Owl Reads

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author as part of the virtual book tour. I was not paid to read or review this book. All opinions are my own and was never influenced by anything or anyone.

Savage was an interesting read. It explained a lot of things about the story and the background was laid out one after the other. We are reading the story in Christian's first person point-of-view as it revolves around him and his experience when he moved from Denmark to Florida for his medical studies in the 80s. He was taken in by a wealthy family who welcomed him to their home with open arms.

Christian's future in Florida seemed to be heading in a promising direction until that incident that changed his life forever. Sulking in his thoughts and wallowing in self-pity, he wanted explanations with how he survived, if there is any rational explanation for what happened.

The writing was pretty good, you could tell it was researched well, although I think it was laid out too much. Like Christian, I wanted more of Aiyana. She is just so mysterious and I wish we could see her point-of-view as well. The sexual situations were mostly mild. A little bit of description but not much heat in it. Still would not recommend it to teens under 16. I wish there was more about the strange family of women, and I also found the ending quite sad because they chose a more "sensible" path. Maybe we would find out why in the next book, I am intrigued with how that would pan out.

I haven't read much shape-shifter stories to compare this one with, but I enjoyed reading and am looking forward to the rest of the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good! June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story line and subject matter had potential but the characters were painfully flat and trite. Very few characters were likeable, including the main character, making it very difficult to even finish reading the book. The main character's behavior often contradicted who you'd been told he was and made the book confusing and irritating. At times I felt like I was reading a book written by a seventh grade boy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Oddly Enthralling - UPDATE SEPT 2012! July 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
UPDATE - The sequel to this novel is available, Broken (Daughters of the Jaguar #2) takes place 10 years later and will answer a few questions.
--------------------------------

After finishing Savage (Daughters of the Jaguar) I had to sit back and kind of soak in what I had read. This is Paranormal Romance by genre but it was actually something a bit more as it tends towards trying to impart the author's sense of morality to the reader in a very general sense. Let me be clear, if I feel an author has decided to get on their soapbox and tell me how to live/vote/make a "better" world in a book I read for entertainment, I usually follow that with a trip to the trashcan. I read this genre for entertainment not enlightenment, with that said this book did it subtly enough for me to overlook most of it and enjoy the story.

Christian is a recent arrival in the USA from Denmark; he is brilliant and shallow at the same time. His life, in addition to his academic prowess due to a photographic memory, has been a tale of women attracted to his good looks and cast aside due to his lack of ability to feel much on an emotional level due to facts that the book will provide. The book starts slowly, giving background and making you wonder if this book was accidentally placed in the wrong genre because it is pretty much story of a medical student going to live/work in Florida on the charity of others. Then things change after a near death experience followed closely by meeting the "crazy" people next door and finds them to be much more than anyone suspects (no I am not going to tell you, read the book).

I have this review and more at my blog for a book tour, go see all the extras, first chapter too. See my profile for the link.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author as part of a book tour in exchange for my honest review.

Wow, this book was amazing. Let me say now, this really is not a YA book, just want you to know, due to the adult relations in it. But mature teens may enjoy this too.

This book has a good over all lesson to learn, and I really liked that about this book. It is also told in a different way than most books I have read. Its really told from an older Christian, telling his tale from his early 20's and on. Like a flashback, but found this to be a nice way to read about it too.

I have never read a whole book from just the male's perspective. I thought it was pretty cool, and it wasn't like the few I had read, its totally male, very nice.

This book does start off a bit slow, and its about half-way into it, before anything supernatural happens, and I will not spoil that for you, lets just say, its quite interesting.

I really liked when Aiyana came into the story, and her family, and loved all their unique names and the meanings of them.
This book will really tug at your heartstrings. I do not want to tell too much about it, except that it really, really is worth reading. Its an amazing story overall, and it had me thinking about it when I was not reading, and dreaming about it too. It just really stuck with me in a way no book has for a long time.

You need to give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed.
5 out of 5 stars for me!

The year is 1983.
