Savage Hunger

Terry Spear. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-1-4022-6692-8
Jaguars and the Amazon jungle take center stage in this run-of-the-mill paranormal romance, the first in a new series by bestseller Spear (Dreaming of the Wolf). Capt. Kathleen “Kat” McKnight barely survived when she and her American team on a mission to take down a drug lord were caught in crossfire that killed her fellow soldiers. A year later, she returns to the Amazon jungle in search of Connor Anderson, the man who rescued her. What Kat doesn’t realize is that Connor is a were-jaguar. Kat soon learns Connor’s secret and isn’t quite sure what to think of him—or his desire to have her as his mate. When dangerous men come looking for Kat, Connor vows to protect her. Spear paints a colorful, vivid portrait of the lush jungle and the deadly beauty and interesting habits of jaguars, but Kat’s easy acceptance of Connor and the swift pace of their romance don’t hold up under scrutiny.
