Summary

Ruthless assassin or irresistible bodyguard?

Named one of the 100 Best Paranormal Books of All Time by Book Authority!

Tiger shifter Cruz Khala doesn’t trust humans. He doesn’t trust destiny either - not even when it sends him the one woman capable of saving his tormented soul. But there’s more than love at stake as merciless shifter forces gather on sunny Maui, intent on stealing a priceless jewel with mysterious powers. Before he knows it, Cruz becomes the last line of defense between pure evil and the sapphire - and the only one capable of saving his destined mate’s life.

Footloose and carefree? Not anymore. Jody Monroe, pro surfer, is a woman on a mission - until an unknown gunman turns her world upside down. She escapes thanks to a stealthy, enigmatic stranger with haunting, yellow-green eyes who arouses all her fears - and her desires. Cruz is a contradiction: Gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective of those he loves. And sexy. Mouthwateringly sexy, all the damn time. Soon, Jody’s life isn’t the only thing on the line - her heart is, too.

Aloha Shifters: Jewels of The Heart is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. Each story is a pause-resister packed with action, emotion, and romance! Magnum, PI with a shifter twist (a smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifter twist)!

No cliff hangers. Each story is a stand-alone paranormal romance with adult content. This story includes strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billionaires, military heroes, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales!

Tigers do purr

Lure of the Tiger is the fourth book in the Aloha Shifters series. Set on the tropical island of Maui, book four follows Jody and Cruz’s story. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book as much as the others in the series because I had never really warmed to Cruz. He was always the silent, serious one standing on the sidelines. That all changed when I got to hear his point of view. When it comes to Jody, Cruz’s inner tiger can be soft and fuzzy! As always, Kelsey Osborne’s narration drew me into this shifter island paradise. Lure of the Tiger has the usual thrills, humour, steam and HEA I’ve come to expect from Anna Lowe’s books. Although not my favourite book in the series, this comes in close second place. Highly recommended. I was given a free copy of this audiobook, and I'm leaving a voluntary review.

Favourite in series so far especially Keiki

Book 4 in the Aloha Shifters Jewels of the Heart series (Cruz and Jody) Cruz is a tiger shifter that after his family are killed he eventually finds the other Shifters and they become a family. Cruz struggles with his past but also sees the other shifters in his team mating and beginning to live there lives to fullest and starting there own families. My absolute favourite thing in this series is the kitten Keiki, she’s showed Cruz and other tough characters how to be soft and cuddly. This visual aspect that Anna Lowe develops in this book is fantastic especially Cruz’s home and the description of the home that the ex special forces have for themselves on Maui. Cruz and Jody are perfect together and I’m really looking forward to seeing others getting there HEA. Kelsey Osborne has a awesome ability to express each character with their own personalities and mix them beautifully with there female characters as well.

Tigers, oh my!

I love shifter books, Jody is a pro surfer and is one of the faces of a new ad campaign that is shooting on the island. Cruz is, well you all know Cruz and what does he dislike, Humans of course....his tiger on the other hand wants this human... Terrific storyline and narration. Listen to the book you won’t be disappointed.

Enjoyable

Format: Audiobook I was looking forward to Cruz’s story and I wasn’t disappointed. When Cruz sets his sights on Jody (literally) love was the last thing on his mind, as the story unfolds our surly tiger shifter uncovers the truth surrounding his past but can he protect his future from the same fate? Another enjoyable book from this series, the narrator is easy to listen to and the plot has no trouble keeping you engaged, as for the ending ..... I am now curious to see how things are going to work out for the Aloha shifters dragon leader !

Cruz's story-another great addition to the series!

Cruz and Jody were so cute together. I really liked Jody's sense of family (hence her modeling). At first I did not care for Cruz because of his attitude towards humans. Because he received bad/wrong info about his family's death that he was planning to avenge, Cruz was going to kill Jody. Luckily he saves her from yet another killer. Jody ends up with one of the Spirit Stones during a photo shoot. When trouble comes, she is fierce in wielding the power of the stone even though she doesn't know how to use it. Ms Lowe is so good at writing evil characters (makes you want to jump into the book and b!tch slap them-especially that nasty vampire who is definitely not one of the romantic ones). This book contains a few evil villans. I loved what happens to each of them except for the photographer. It was awesome when Silas swooped in to chase the helicopter that contained one of the bad guys, and anyone following the series knows that Silas is a bada$$. Ms Lowe is also great at the steamy scenes and who wouldn’t want one with the tiger Cruz. Jody made a believer out of Cruz that love is possible. I love that each story is a standalone and each story sets you up for the next one. The epilogue was great! I highly recommend each book in this series as they are unique and awesome! Kelsey Osborne did a great job with the narration. To me, she is the voice of the series. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great book on the go

This book is excellent. The series keeps getting better with each book. Anna Lowe is an surfer by writer. Cruz and Jody's story has all the elements of an exciting romance. Cruz is a tiger shifter that is looking for revenge against his families killers. Jody is helping her family by modeling for quick cash. The love story that progresses is wonderful. The narration was well done

Lure of the Tiger

Gah! I loved this book and these two wonderful characters with their strength and turmoil throughout this book, but I need to know what happens with Silas! An amazing series so far and I can’t wait for what happens next.

Nice Kitty

Cruz sets out to shoot the person responsible for the death of his family. The target turns out to be Jody, a surfer turned model. Cruz's cat wants to play nice but the other part doesn't want to betray his family. Jody and Cruz must work together to find out who is behind the shooting, protect the Spirit Stone and possibly fall in love. I loved the fact that Jody is down to earth and the type of person I can relate too. She's a girl who would do almost anything to help those she loves. Cruz may be a fierce tiger but Jody know just how to make him pur. Anna Lowe has written another winning story and Kelsey Osborne is able to bring the characters to life.

Lure of a great story

Love this whole series. And love this one since I love tigers . Anna knows how to intertwine a little bit of the past characters in her other books within this story . Anna also knows how to keep the man true to his shifter animal. Hero is Cruz. Heroine is Jody Cruz hates humans and there is a big reason why... he blames humans for his parents murder. Cruz is also a tiger shifter and he is true to his animal..... he’s moody, stubborn... and once he gets an idea in his mind nothing can throw him off . Jody is a surfer but she decides to do a gig as a model for the extra money her family needs . Cruz sees Jody and his tiger knows right away that Jody is their mate but Cruz the man won’t accept it . Both Cruz and Jody will have to lean to trust each other and get along because Jody has to do a screamer with a spirt stone which can be very dangerous. . Will they know what the spirt stone is all about . Will Cruz figure out that Jody is not like other humans The performance of Kelsey was good . She did all the tones of the characters and scenes good. Her voice is storing and clear

Never thought l'd hear that tiger purr!

How the mighty has fallen, this grumpy tough as nails Tiger shifter soldier has met his match in this human girl. With a thick skin and bucket loads of confidence this beauty in a bikini , champion surfer can stand her ground. But trouble is on the horizon for both of them. l always enjoy the dulcet tones of Kelsey Osbourne and Anna Lowe always delivers a great story. Recommended listening.

Cruz and Jody

I enjoyed listening to Lure of the Tiger. Anti-human tiger shifter, Cruz, finally has a lead to who killed his family, but when the target comes into view his Tiger is not so convinced. Surfer/model Jody is bound to see her job through. She hates modeling but it will help out her family. Just one more shoot, but this shoot might cost her life. Initially reduced by Cruz, she breaks down his defenses as he morphs into her bodyguard. That is after his Tiger convinces him she isn't the killer. Opposites attract all right. But will the spirit stone be more trouble than it's worth? I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Lure of the Tiger from the author.

Love this Series

I'm really enjoying this series by Anna Lowe. This is the 4th book in the Aloha Shifters series. The main characters are some of my favorite so far. This is a great book for an afternoon by the pool. I can't wait till the next book in this series.

I Believe...Love Is Beautiful

With each story the tension as to the culmination grows! Cruise is the tiger shifter whose entire family was killed and humans were blamed. Sullen, quiet and constantly pacing the story starts with Cruise told by a reliable informant his family’s killed is at a party..specifics are given on how to recognize his target..he waits and his target is a woman..Jodi..he can’t do it..there is another sniper waiting to shoot her..Cruise saves her (she’s a pro surfer) and the struggle upon knowing it’s his destined mate begins. Jodi is as positive as Cruise is negative...She says Life is beautiful, love is beautiful Believe. Great action, sweetness once Cruise surrenders..add in lion shifters and vampires and mermaids? Can’t wait for Silas’s story..to learn of his heartbreak and who will be his destined mate! WORTH THE CREDIT WORTH THE MONEY! Get the entire series! This is a series I will listen to from time to time to enjoy as I really enjoy the narrator as well! she’s great This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

book 4 - Cruz and Jody

Jody is a pro surfer who is on the last leg of a temporary modeling contract when she ends up in the cross hairs of a sniper. Cruz has received intel pointing toward Jody as the one who murdered his family, but upon seeing her realizes that his information is flawed and is about to leave when another sniper catches his eye. Rather than killing her, he and his tiger do all in their power to save her and keep her from harm - and what better way than take her to his home? His instinct is pulling him ever closer to Jody, screaming at him that she is his destined mate. Will he be able to shake off the past to secure his future? A journey to find out what happened to get the wrong information begins as well as figuring if there is more in play here than first meets the eye...such as the next spirit stone? And what about the reappearance of Moira and the rumors swirling about Koa Point? (Don't know what I'm talking about? Read the book and you will.) As always, Anna's stories are well developed, character driven, steamy, and standalone (although they are much enhanced if read in order).
