I can not believe I have never read a Terry Spear novel before. Wow, her writing voice is beautiful and is a wonderful storyteller. The characters jump off the pages and her descriptive writing is amazing. I felt like I was right there in the Jungle with the waterfalls, Pink Dolphins and Jaguars. I love when a author takes the time to research what they are writing. I never knew Pink Dolphins existed. I love shifter novels especially the ones where they actually shift. Terry Spear does a amazing work with her Jaguar shifters in Savage Hunger. When they are in their Jaguar form I felt I was in their minds wandering around in the Jungle, etc.. The story does take a while to pick up, I was fine with that as I was so engrossed in her descriptive writing. It is a good amount of action and romance. Towards the end the plane ride was intense, as I did not know how it was all going to play out. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat. The situations Connor and Kat end up being in, I did not know how Terry was going to pull if off. Well she pulled it off just like she did the other times through out the novel. The epilogue was nicely down as I had tears of joy.
Connor who is a sexy alpha male, possessive, protective and sweet hero I just adored. He got my attention from the first time he saves Kat, then through out the story adored him more while he tends to always be there for Kat. The waterfall scene is not to be missed. He is sweet and giving when he tends to her needs when she was sick. Loved, loved and loved the waterfall scene. Connor had my heart pumping and stomach all tingly. He is a swoon worthy hero in my eyes. Terry Spears even had me giggling a bit with Connors cute, but at times jealous remarks.
Kat is a beautiful and strong heroine. Her and Connor were made for each other. They have beautiful chemistry together. I enjoyed the progress of their relationship as it was done in a timely manner. The love scenes are steamy and are beautifully done.
Maya is Connor’s sister who is also a Jaguar shifter. The love they have for each other is sweet. They both look out for each other and will do anything for each other. Maya is willing to even try and turn Kat into a Jaguar shifter so Connor will have a mate and not be lonely, plus she wants a sister badly, as it is just her and her brother, no more family left.
Kudos to Terry Spear for giving shifter fans a great start to a new Jaguar shifter series, that I look forward to reading the next in the series. Love the covers and excited to already have Jaguar Fever (Heart of the Jaguar #2) showing off on my blog. I look forward to reading her Heart Of The Wolf Series (I cannot wait to see how she does with her wolf shifters) and her YA novels.
