Dr. Cindy Shahi is resigned to being mateless, but her inner jaguar has needs that must be sated. An encounter with a deliciously sexy stranger is the perfect chance for a night of no-strings primal passion.

Elias was content to be a lone wolf until the moment he laid eyes—and much more—on Cindy. Their intense attraction can mean only one thing: the mating call. And when it becomes clear someone isn't happy about their budding relationship, all of Elias's protective instincts go on high alert. He'll do anything to keep Cindy safe—and convince her that he intends to claim her as his own, no matter what.

Heart of the Jaguar Cindy is the only shifter doctor in the town of Bear Mountain, she had moved here when her best friend from college suggested she come as the resident doctor was retiring. Cindy was not part of the local pack but they had accepted and cared for her as one of their own from the very first moment she arrived. Elias was a soldier, he served in the special forces and he loved it but after blowing his knee out he was forced to retire. With nowhere he really needed to be one of his special forces team and his closest friend Owen invited him to Bear Mountain for his wedding and asked him to stay and stand beside him as his second in command of his pack. Neither Elias or Cindy had ever believed they would meet their true mate but fate had other ideas

 I love Katie Reus' writing style! She never fails to provide a great read. Despite the fact that this is a short story, she packs in lots of heart & action! Definitely worth reading!

This book is only 67 pages. I'm ticked that I paid 2.99. It isn't worth the money. The author tries to cram too much story in too few pages so it just feels rushed and frantic, you don't get any real sense of the characters.

Another wonderful storyline from Katie Reus: REVIEW: HEART OF THE JAGUAR is the fifth installment in Katie Reus's Nocturne Craving Paranormal series of novellas. This particular series is NOT connected to Katie's Moonshifter series, but is series of short stories focusing on the lives and loves of the shifter wolves and jaguars in Bear Mountain, Montana. Heart of the Jaguar follows wolf shifter Elias, the pack alpha's new second in command and Dr. Cindy Shahi, a jaguar and local physician. The chemistry is instant when the couple meet at the wedding of mutual friends, but Elias's wolf only knows one thing-Cindy is his mate. Cindy on the other hand wants nothing to do with long term relationships-she had a secret and was willing to bet that no shifter male would take her on as his mate Threats against the couple begin to escalate placing Cindy and Elias in danger. Believing they know who is responsible, the information is handed over to the local police, but all too soon, the rules of the game change when a late night drive turns deadly and the couple are forced to shift in order to save their own lives. HEART OF THE JAGUAR is another fascinating storyline from the pen of Katie Reus. Although this series of novels can be read as stand-alones, there is enough of a connection between the storylines that they should be read in order to keep the character and world building cohesive. I am a big fan of Katie Reus, and she has yet to disappoint this reader.

This story had everything this girl could want in a story! I like that even though it was short, it did not just focus on their attraction. There was an actual story and it was good!

Katie has done it again. This is the very spicy tale of Cindy, a Jaguar shifter, and Elias, a wolf shifter. Their passion sizzles as they do the mating dance all the while dealing with a dangerous stalker. What a perfect match these two are. Cindy is strong, fearless and in control while Elias is a very Alpha male who protects what he loves. I did enjoy this fast paced sexy story.

What can I say about Katie Reus that has not been said already by me or others? Well I can say...she's done it again! She has written a fast and dirty (pun) novella about a jaguar and a wolf who are very combustible when they get together. I love these sweet little morsels that Katie serves us in her shifter stories. She did not disappoint with this story. You are drawn to the couple from the start. The fun for me was watching how the oh so sexy Elias (yes he is as sexy as his name) was going to convince the good doctor that they were meant to be together. If you are looking for a sexy read that you can swallow in one bite, this is your novella. It is definitely worth reading.

Sexy. Sensual. Sweet. Those are three words I would use to describe Heart of the Jaguar. As with the other Cravings by Katie, you get to see shifters meet, fall for each other, and overcome adversity. Are they all the same? Nope! They are perfect to read if you want to read a book that engages you and allows you to forget the real world for a couple of hours. In Heart of the Jaguar, Cindy isn't looking for a a long term mate. She has been hurt in the past regarding something she can't change about herself, so she isn't going to allow herself to fall again. Elias is drawn to Cindy from the moment he meets her. Could this be his mate? He never thought he would find a mate, so he can't be sure. However, these two are undeniably drawn to each other. They share a passionate night together, just relying on their instincts and needs. What surprises them both is that this desire and need for one another is not sated after just one night. It grows into something more. I love alpha wolves and strong jaguars. Cindy was a perfect match for Elias. She doesn't back down and keeps him on his toes - something he is learning to love about her. Katie does such a good job writing paranormal characters. You are able to understand them in a way that they almost seem real. The intimate scenes are very tasteful and appropriate to the characters and the story, and certainly hot! If you are looking for a sexy, paranormal romance, I recommend you try Heart of the Jaguar!
