Savage Hunger (Heart of the Jaguar #1) by Terry Spear

savage hunger



Captain Kathleen McKnight is on a mission. A classified mission for the military. She is locating a drug lord in the Amazon rain forest.  For the mission she is dolled up, blonde hair, blue eyes and flashing a lot of money. Men take her hostage and are going to take her personally to the drug lord. Only, Kathleen isn’t alone in the jungle. A team of her men are there and are surrounding the camp where they take her to hold her hostage.

Enter Connor Anderson. He is a jaguar-shifter. He and his sister Maya vacation twice a year to the rain forest. Normally they live in Texas and run a nursery for trees and plants. Connor hears the talk between the men and then hears her start yelling no. He takes off in his jaguar form to get to where she is. Something tells him he needs to save her.

He makes it there and is able to save Kathleen but none of her men. During the battle that had been going on, Kathleen ended up shot twice. Once in the thigh and the other in the arm. Connor got the bleeding staunched before another team of men showed up and rescued Kat. When Connor and his sister return back to Texas, he tries to find out any information on her that he can.

A year later, Kathleen returns to the jungle. She doesn’t realize that Connor is actually a jaguar and that he’s not travelling with one. She ends up cornered by two jaguars and in a tree. Unlucky for her, she ends up falling out of said tree and lands pretty hard on her knee, which makes her useless as it won’t hold her weight at all. Things become dangerous when hunters are heard in the area. Connor grabs the backpack that Kathleen has on and hauls her up into the tree where it’s safe. The three of them sleep in the tree and later Connor slips away and comes back as a human.

He takes Kathleen back to the hut he shares with his sister and then things get complicated. Not between them but she becomes sick after Maya scratches her while in jaguar form.

Why did Kathleen return to the jungle? What happens between her and Connor? How does the jaguar shifting, which Kathleen knows nothing about, fit into their lives at this point? How does Connor and Maya explain the jaguars as being around them?


All the above is only in the first six chapters! This book has a lot going on and it’s a great book. I would recommend it to fans of shifter books. I haven’t read any of Terry Spears’ works before but after this one, I will be reading more.
