Lure of the Dragon
Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart #1
by Anna Lowe
Nothing is forbidden to this elite corps of shifter bodyguards and private investigators…except falling in love.
Good dragons? Bad dragons? Twenty-four hours ago, private chef Tessa Byrne didn’t know about the terrifying world of shifters. Now she knows too much, like the fact that a ruthless dragon lord is determined to claim her — forever. Tessa flees to Maui, where sunny skies, swaying palms, and a handsome stranger conspire to play tricks with her heart. Can she truly trust Kai Llewellyn and his band of battle-hardened shapeshifters to save her from a gruesome fate?
Don’t trust a human, and never, ever fall in love with one. Those are lessons Kai learned the hard way. But Tessa is different. Her emerald eyes mirror the mysterious pendant she wears, and her flaming red hair makes his heart race. Is his inner dragon just greedy for a new kind of treasure, or is Tessa his destined mate?
ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifters, you’ll love these books!
* No cliff hangers. Each story is a standalone paranormal romance with adult content. The perfect read for fans of strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billonaires, military romance, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales! *
My Book Review:
This was my first read by Anna, I haven’t read a dragon shifter book for a while and this looked to be quite a good read!
Tessa is a private chef and takes on a new client who turns out to be a bad dragon and wants her and won’t take no for an answer. Luckily she has a neighbour who points her to some friends in Hawaii who can help. Tessa is freaked out to say the least after discovering the world isn’t quite what it seems to be.
The friends in Hawaii turn out to be a group of 5 male friends, all ex-military, and all shifters, though not all dragons. Tessa feels an instant connection to one of them, Kai, and we soon discover that they are fated mates.
Tessa turns out to be not quite so human as she thought she was! The rest of the plot revolves around keeping her safe from the bad dragons and getting her and Kai to bond as mates. There are some hot steamy scenes with Tessa and Kai as their bond builds.
A quick easy and enjoyable shifter read, nothing that wasn’t expected and a bit slow in places, but it lines up for an interesting series.
