From the publisher:

As a jaguar he is graceful and gorgeous...

Speedy and stealthy...
Fierce, independent, and wild...

As a man he is passionate and powerful...

Willful and wonderful...
And he'll stop at nothing to protect what's his...


A year ago, Army Capt. Kathleen McKnight was on a mission to take down a drug cartel in the Amazon rain forest. She was mortally wounded and the rest of her team was killed. Connor Anderson arrived on the scene, and so did a jaguar that she heard but didn't see. Connor saved saved her life and then disappeared back into the rain forest, along with his "pet" jaguar.

Connor Anderson and his sister Maya are born jaguar shifters, the only shifters aside from their estranged family that they know of. They regularly visit the Amazon rain forest to get back to their roots and to run in their jaguar coats. A year after saving "Kat," Connor still has not forgotten her. And Kat has not forgotten him.

Suffering from PTSD, Kat returns to the rain forest to try to find Connor, to thank him for saving her life. She gets hopelessly lost and is found by two jaguars--Connor and Maya in their jaguar forms. Connor rescues her in his human form, and can't believe that Kat has returned to him.

As a consequence of being the only jaguar-shifters that they know of, Connor and Maya have no prospects of finding mates. Maya recognizes the attraction between Connor and Kat, and takes a drastic measure to get them together.

"The more [Connor] knew about [Kat] and her past, the more mired in trouble they were all becoming."

Kat's past is following her, and they are all put in mortal danger. The race for their lives through the jungle, and additional complications are brought on by Maya's duplicity. Not all mysteries are tied up neatly in the end, probably leading into the next book. Jaguar Fever will be out in August, 2013.

Terry Spear fans, rejoice! She has done for jaguar-shifters what she did for wolf-shifters. She thoroughly researched jaguars and their habits and incorporated that research into accurately portraying her jaguar-shifters. Her Amazon rain forest is also richly described. You will feel the humidity against your skin, smell the lush vegetation, and hear the howler monkeys in the trees. She transports you to the predatory, magical, tropical world of jaguar-shifters.

Enjoy reading Savage Hunger!
