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

Kathleen McKnight is on a dangerous mission to help her army team take down a drug lord.  She’s a tough as nails recruit, but when she’s caught in the crossfire, she has to rely on a mysterious man to save her. She has no idea that he has big plans for her…
   Connor Anderson is a jaguar shifter who is looking for his mate. When he rescues Kathleen in the jungle—twice—he can’t help but be intrigued.  Will a bite or a scratch turn Kathleen into the perfect jaguar mate? 

4/5 stars

I love Terry Spear's Werewolf series so when I saw this new series I just knew I had to read it.  I really liked that they were Jaguar shifters and that the story took place in the rainforest.  The change of scenery from urban America to the jungle of Colombia was a welcome change in the shifter genre.  Spear's writing was so descriptive that I could actually see the cats prowling around protecting their territory.  I loved Connor and his sister, Maya.  They're both looking for mates, but don't know if there are any other jaguar shifters.  During an annual vacation, Connor finds the perfect woman for himself, but she is just a regular human unless Maya can do something about that.  While trying to figure out mating urges they must also contend with natives and drug cartels.  I read the book in two sittings and can't wait for the next book.
