I just finished reading the Jaguar Legacy. Not normally a fan of the paranormal books, I found it easy to suspend disbelief while reading this book. Great, well-rounded and well developed characters kept me involved throughout. I fell in love with Kincaid and Charley from the start. And appropriately hated Leila. Not a boring page in the entire thing (or do we say "screen" instead of "page" now?) A real page turner. I happily recommend this book.

The Journey:
This book has a good mixture of many things: archeology, ancient civilizations, centuries old curses, reincarnation, shape shifting. I know it sounds like a lot but Fisher skillfully weaves them together for a fast-paced, entertaining romp through the jungle.

The Characters:
I loved the character Fisher created in the hero, Alistair Kincaid - a sexy Scottish archeologist with a penchant for tacky Hawaiian shirts. I could so picture Gerard Butler in this role. Yum! Charlie is interesting too. She has secrets, some she isn't even aware of. It's an intriguing journey as readers discover her forgotten past along with her.

Jungle Love:
The sexual tension between Charlie and Kincaid is well-played. I always enjoy a good verbal sparing between characters, and these two know how to push each other's buttons. I often have a hard time when characters fall in love too quickly. While the entire book spans only one week, there is a lot packed into it and by the end, I totally believed these two characters cared deeply for each other and had a chance for their happily ever after.

Those Pesky Mosquitos:
There were a few instances that pulled me out of the story. I had a hard time believing anyone would pack silk blouses and lingerie to take on an archeological dig in the jungle. I also had to wonder how none of the characters noticed the hidden ceremonial chamber had recently seen human activity (fires near the altar, incense burning, footprints in the centuries old dust, etc.) when they thought it had been sealed up for 2000 years. There was also a ring Charlie wore that seemed to have special significance but it was never explained how she got it. But these were small bumps in an otherwise interesting journey.

The Jaguar Legacy is very different from other paranormal romances I've read. Everything is unique in this hot love story--the setting, an archaeological dig in the jungles of Mexico, mysticism, reincarnation, shapeshifters--this story has it all. Alistair and Charley are engaging characters. I loved their banter and I loved how independent Charley is. They both have issues and help each other resolve them. I read this quickly because the action is non-stop. I liked it so much I immediately bought another book by this author.

The Jaguar Legacy is packed with romantic comedy, intrigue, danger, mystery, betrayal, with a good dollop of the supernatural to glue it together. Charley and Alistair are great characters, their sexual attraction delicious, their repartee hilarious. Collin the cook makes a wonderful and canny mentor. The author's descriptive writing style made the characters full-bodied and immersed me in the hot, humid jungle and an archeological dig. Glimpses into the ancient Olmec civilization were a bonus. An entertaining read.

In order to fully appreciate fantasy stories, IMO, one has to completely suspend disbelief and dive in, head first.

The Jaguar Legacy is one few fantasy/shape-shifting novels I have delved into - normally I wouldn't touch one with a 40 foot barge-pole!

The premise is simple - Charley Underhill, an investigative reporter - forces her way into an archeological dig, determined to write a story which will resurrect her career. In spite of being attracted to the archeologist in charge of the dig - Alistair Kincaid - and being well aware that he will be ruined financially if news of a fantastic discovery gets out before he is ready, Charley is determined betray him in order to make the coup of her life, and a pot of money will also enable her to "save" her alcoholic mother by putting her into rehab. Madam Charley has a lot to learn.

Amid the exotic Mexican ruins, the cult of the Jaguar is played out in devious plots by Alistair's ex-wife and her mentor to the almost destruction of Alistair and Charley.

I particularly liked the character of Alistair - a huge bluff Scot who can sing like an angel, dresses like a madman, plays the bagpipes and has a secret vice he wishes to hide. Charley didn't do it so much for me. Self-righteous and self-seeking - albeit misguidedly - she didn't hold a candle to the hero of the piece. But that didn't stop me enjoying this rare expedition into the world of the shape-shifter and ancient Mexico.

As a developing author myself, I understand the nifty aspect of multiple Points of View. Unfolding the story via many perspectives should allow for a richer experience of the unfolding story. It certainly eases the process for the writer.

As a reader, however, hopping around from one head to another is irritating.

Fisher has the potential for a good story here, but I'm afraid I got snagged by not knowing who to care about. As well, perhaps the "heat" developed a bit too predictably for me.

I truly enjoyed reading this paranormal romantic suspense. Ms Fisher describes the scenes so well you believe yourself in the jungle along with her hero and heroine. I simply couldn't put this book down. I can't wait to read her next book.
