Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Spear has left the werewolves of her past novels (Dreaming of the Wolf, 2011) and turned to felines. Connor Anderson and his twin sister, Maya, inherited the ability to transform into jaguars from their parents, the only other shifters they have ever known. In the Amazon, Connor uses both his jaguar and human abilities to save the life of steely army captain Kathleen McKnight. Obsessed with Kat, he returns to the Amazon a year later and is surprised to find that she has returned to the jungle in search of him and his “pet jaguar.” Kat and Maya become fast friends, and the attraction between Connor and Kat is irresistible, even in the face of Kat’s troubled past and Connor’s dual nature. The strength of Spear’s writing lies in her ability to keep the reader emotionally in tune with the characters despite the unfamiliar terrain of both the deep jungle and the supernatural elements. Spear’s lush descriptions of the Amazon, and a few tantalizing loose ends, will leave readers hungry for more time in paradise. --Amber Peckham

More About the Author

USA TODAY bestselling, and award-winning author and creator of award-winning teddy bears who have found homes all over the world including Australia, Switzerland, China, and Russia, and a retired officer of the US Army Reserves, I love to plant trees and flowers and if I could, I'd turn all the deserts green. Time travels are my favorite read, although I love to read most anything, and the Bourne series, Romancing the Stone, Sixth Sense, Legend, The Princess Bride, Stardust, Inkheart, LOTR, and tons of other movies are my favorites.

I love to research, to make urban fantasy worlds real, to bring a little of the paranormal into our world. Even in "Winning the Highlander's Heart" the heroine feels she is cursed and she has second sight. But I try to do it in a way that feels real, and not fantasized. :) Currently, I'm working on book 2 of the new jaguar shifter series, but still am working on wolf book number 12 and 13! So more hunky wolves to come! A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing has just released.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rating: C+

Captain Kathleen McKnight is kidnapped and held hostage in a South American jungle, while trying to capture a drug lord. Connor Anderson, on his yearly vacation with his sister, hears her cries of pain and rushes off to rescue her. Shifting into his jaguar form, he fends off the kidnappers, only to leave her as her Army team shows up.

A year later, Kathleen, now discharged from the army, returns to the jungle to find the man she can't forget and his "pet" jaguar. Connor hasn't forgotten Kathleen either, but knows the unlikelihood two of them being together. However, when Connor and his sister find Kathleen lost in the jungle, he can't resist the temptation to spend more time with her.

The book to this point was fun and romantic. I especially enjoyed the suspense scenes, which is not the usual for me at all. Normally, suspense scenes are either too graphic for me or not suspenseful at all, if that makes sense. Sometimes it is not enough to hold my breath, sit on the edge of my seat and read on to see what happens; more like, I get more suspense driving down the road at rush hour. Here was just enough suspense to keep me turning the pages but not too much to take away from the romance.

It is after Connor and his sister bring Kathleen to their home that the book started to fall flat for me. Maya, Connor's sister, scratches Kathleen and injects her with shapeshifter DNA, transforming her. And when Kathleen finds out, she just accepts it and her new shifter status, and joins in with Connor and Maya.

She just accepts it?! This is hard to believe for me. Her whole life has just been changed forever, and she is okay with that? She doesn't resent Connor or Maya? She doesn't complain?

No way. Not happening.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Through a horrific event, medical discharge from the army and a failed engagement, Kathleen McKnight hasn't stopped thinking about Connor Anderson and the jaguar she believes is like his pet. A year after a failed mission in the Amazon, Kat makes her way back into the jungle to thank the man that saved her life on that fateful day.

Connor hasn't been able to get Kat off his mind and when he and his sister Maya make their annual trip to South America to shift and roam freely as jaguars, he's surprised to find her there. Though he's happy to see Kat again, he's determined to get her to safety and out of his life because he can't see a human/shifter relationship working. Luckily for him, Maya sees the desire and need in his eyes every time he looks at Kat and has plans of her own.

What Kat went through during her failed mission to take down a drug lord was terrible and I recognize that it takes a lot of strength and courage for her to work past that, not to mention the trip into the Amazon itself, but I wasn't blow away by her. It's not that I didn't like her, it's just there wasn't a lot that will make me put her on my favorite heroines list. The same goes for Connor. He's not the type of alpha that borders on being a a-hole but I can see that he's one with how easily he takes charge. He's handsome and strong but again, not a whole lot that will stick with me. Both kept me interested in the story and I wanted them to have their HEA but now that the books over, I probably won't give them any more thought.

Kat's reemergence in the Amazon hasn't gone unnoticed by the drug lord she escaped from and he wants revenge. Connor, Maya and Kat are in a race to get back to the U.S.

Whenever I see a Terry Spear book I get so excited. It's because I know I am about to be entertained by one of the best paranormal romance storytellers. I am a huge fan of her wolf shifter series so when I heard she was writing a new series about jaguar shifters, well is there any wonder as to why I had to get my hands on a copy ASAP??

I am so utterly delighted that I did!

Conner and his sister Maya live in Texas but they vacation quite regularly in the Amazon jungle. This is the one place where it is relatively safe for them to let their cats run free. Unfortunately they are not the only predator in the jungle. Conner comes across an undercover military operation against one of the drug cartels and ends up rescuing Army Officer Kathleen McKnight (Kat). After a year he still can't get her out of his head, even though she is not a jaguar shifter like himself.

While Kat had a very traumatic experience the last time she came to the jungle, she cannot forget the man who rescued her. In order to put her fears behind her and hopefully meet up with the man who rescued her she travels back to where it all began, the Amazon jungle.

Savage Hunger is a must read for anyone who loves a romantic paranormal with a bit of mystery thrown in. There is no doubt in my mind that this is another wonderful shifter series and I look forward to reading Jaguar Fever when it is released this coming spring.

Captain Kathleen McKnight and her team are in the Amazon trying to take down a dangerous drug lord, but the mission goes horribly wrong. She's kidnapped, her team is ambushed and slaughtered, and she would have been next, if it hadn't been for the appearance of a jaguar followed by the mysterious Connor Anderson. He's instantly attracted to the brave female warrior before him, but he can't risk his secret being uncovered, and he decides to let her go.

Kathleen can't forget the trauma from the failed mission. Suffering from PTSD and the subsequent dissolution of her engagement to her fiance, she follows her psychiatrist's recommendation to go back to the jungle to face her fears. She's determined to find Connor, the man who keeps a pet jaguar, to thank him in person. Upon her arrival, her guide fails to show up,and so she decides to make the trek alone. Surely a pet jaguar won't harm her, right? It doesn't take long before Connor crosses paths with her, and he decides to take her back to the home he shares with his sister, Maya. It's not long before the drug lord hears about her reappearance on his turf, and he wants her. Can Connor keep her safe from her enemies, keep his secret and possibly get his mate as well?

Maya recognizes the sizzling chemistry between her brother and Kat. She desperately wants Connor to be happy and be with his mate. Connor won't hear of it and remains stubborn about getting closer to Kat. What's a sister to do but take matters into her own hands, or paws?

From the blurb, I expected a suspenseful romance with a hot male shifter determined to win over the warrior-like heroine. For me, this story fell a little short. In the beginning, I wasn't sure if Maya had all her marbles.
