Review - Jaguar Fever by Terry Spear

 JAGUAR FEVER is the second story in the Heart of the Jaguar series by Terry Spear. Although it is the second book, it can be read as a standalone without difficulty. This story focuses on Maya Anderson and Wade Patterson who were introduced in book one-Savage Hunter.

 A month or so earlier, Wade Patterson secretly protected Connor and Maya Anderson while they roamed the jungle in their jaguar coats. When he saw Connor with another woman, he was incensed on Maya's behalf. Because of his job, he couldn't pursue Maya or defend her against a 'philandering' husband but when he's sitting in a shifter nightclub looking for clues on another case imagine his surprise when Maya walks in.

 Maya just wants to have fun which is why she agreed to meet some newfound cousins at the shifter club…which she'd never known existed. But with her brother Connor and his mate, Kat, already gone on their last vacation before Kat's babies are born, Maya is ripe to discover her family and her breed.

 Wade wastes no time making a move on the lovely Maya when he discovers that Connor is her brother. But duty interferes and he's called outside to get important information about men hunting jaguars both in the jungle and in Texas.

 Ms Terry Spear writes an adventurous and exotic story about illegal hunting and trapping of the big South American cats and introduces this new breed's hierarchies here in the States. I enjoy the way she combines environmental issues with her romance plots. Her ability to bring the jungle scenery to life is fantastical and immediate. Just as she brings real characters to the stage and gives them action and romance packed storylines.

 Jaguar Fever will sizzle across the pages and make you reach for the fancy umbrella drink. Don't miss it!
