This book picks up where book one left off. This is Maya Anderson’s story. She goes into a club where she comes across two real bad boys. David and Wade Patterson are on assignment at the same club. Then Maya seems to be causing something of a stir.

During the altercation, you will find that you just have to chuckle. I’m sure it’s not the most appropriate thing to do but you just won’t be able to help yourself. It also leaves you with a sense of anticipation. Terry always creates her shifters to be very sensual. But she also leaves you feeling that shifters may actually live amongst us.

And then Terry turns up the heat. Our author gives us just the right amount of romance, intrigue and sex. Plus she includes some great settings – in this case it is the country of Belize. Today (July 3) I found it interesting that she chose Belize - I watched two programs that made me think of this jaguar series.

I started my morning watching Good Morning America. They had Jack Hanna on and he had some wild babies with him. One in particular caught my attention since it was a 4-month old black jaguar. It puts Terry’s characters into perspective – the baby had such large paws and very sharp claws. The second show was on Animal Planet titled North America and the narrator was talking about an online poll where viewers (originally aired on Discovery Channel) got a chance to vote on destinations. Number 5 destination was none other than Belize.

Between the book and the series on Animal Planet it has left me wanting to go there for a visit. Plus I want to see if I could find any of those wild shifters lurking about. If you ever get a chance to visit there, what a great book to pack in your suitcase.

This was definitely another action packed page-turner. It also brought home how illegal trafficking of wild animals is something that needs to be stopped. I’m one of those people that hates to see anything caged. Wild animals need to be in there own environment roaming free. Animal Planet has another show titled Big Cat Diaries that I’ve been watching in repeats. I just love watching the cheetahs lounging in the trees. When I read about Terry’s jaguars, I can picture them doing the same thing.

I’m afraid that all I can tell you is that there will be another book in this series title Jaguar Heat. The bad news is that it’s not scheduled to come out until August of next year. In the meantime, it gives you plenty of time to get this book read and if you haven’t read book one you can get that one done too. Also, you may want to mark your calendar so that you remember a year from now that book three should be hitting shelves at your local bookstore.

Rating: ★★★★½

No matter what book I pick up by Terry Spear, it is wonderful. Her wolf stories were the BEST, and now her jaguar stories are fantastic. Fantasy, romance, adventure–what’s not to love? You can’t go wrong with Terry Spear’s books.
