There are all kinds of surprises under the mistletoe!

As a protector of all jaguar-kind, Guardian agent Demetria MacFarlane isn't surprised to get a call near Christmas-but when she's sent to protect a cub whose species she didn't even know existed, her holiday season gets complicated. And it doesn't help that her partner is a distraction of the hottest kind.

Hotshot JAG agent Everett Anderson can handle dangerous poachers and wildlife traffickers, no problem...but kids? Everett fears he'll be stuck cub-sitting under the Christmas tree, but working with one sexy Guardian she-cat may be the best present he's ever gotten.

Never go wrong with Terry Spear! Her stories create a since of magic and the feeling that you are experiencing the story itself. Also, how she describes when they become the wolf and interact with other wolves is just so REAL! Like I said, you can never go wrong with this author.

DNF’d at 22% I never thought I would be DNFing a Spear’s book. I’ve always enjoyed the stories and romances, but this time it wasn’t clicking for me. I was not feeling the story, characters, or the case. It felt blaze, predictable, cliche and it wasn’t pulling me in or catching my interest. I will say the start was dramatic and sad, but after that nothing more for me. A Very Jaguar Christmas was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.  *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley with the sole purpose of an honest review.

Review: A Very Jaguar Christmas (Heart of the Jaguar, #5) by Terry Spear Publication Date: October 4, 2016 Genre: Paranormal Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated: 4.5 Stars I immediately loved this story and the characters in it. Their easy banter and camaraderie was relaxing and fun. Everette and Demetria made the perfect couple and the perfect agents for the Christmas time mission. There wasn’t a lot of action with the mystery, rather it was a sexy, feel-good romance. It flowed nicely and was a perfect book to curl up with. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an review.

I have been on a roll this month reading books by authors I have never read before. Terry Spear fits in this category. Being a lover of paranormal shifter stories I was very excited to get this book to read since I have been reading reviews on her books from various people for years. Primary characters Demetria and Everett have a complicated relationship that is explained in the Prologue. As the story progresses the reader will see that sometimes time doesn't make things better but more confusing and sometimes spending time together is the best medicine. The best parts of this story for me was the Prologue and the loving interaction between Everett and Corey which made me cry. That is not to say that there weren't other parts of the story I loved. The plot was well thought out, interesting and the descriptions were amazing. There is a large group of secondary characters that actively participate in this fun story that all deserve their own book. These characters are well written and developed to entice the reader to getting more books to the Heart of the Jaguar series just to read their HEA. My one drawback is that at times it was just a little too sweet and perfect and I would of liked a little more conflict or tension. But this is a personal thing and after reading it I do look forward to reading more of her books.. I do recommend this book for all people and give it 3.75 STARS. A copy was gifted via Netgalley

What a story! Spear is an author who can make the pages sizzle just as easily as she can draw you into the suspense of the tale that she creates. It is a phenomenal mix that kept me on my toes throughout. The solid mythology and world building that she presents is intensely intricate and draws you into it. I love the mixing of the series & can't wait to see what comes of it and the colliding worlds. Spear leads the way with some very memorable characters here. Their actions and reactions to the events within the story really serve to solidify the plot. The plot twists kept coming as the characters kept surprising me. On top of that, they're just plain fun individuals. The amount of heart that goes into every aspect of their lives is endearing. Oh, and just FYI. Jaguars in the snow are priceless. Spear has created a very intricate and intriguing addition to her series that opes up the doors to a whole lot of fun! This is a story that I'd easily recommend to others and that has left me wondering what will happen next.

I really wanted to love this one. There were so many great elements, but they never really came together. Demetria and Everett have a shared grief that has kept them apart - it was quite a sad beginning, which you don't usually see in a Christmas novel, and that was good. It set it apart a little. But, things change very quickly when they find an abandoned cub. Now, this cub is quite a surprise - it's beyond a surprise, but I can't give it away. Let's just say the Jaguar world will never be the same. It was cure and well done, this introduction to something new. But it sort of took over the story. Instead of watching Demetria and Everett bond over a little cub, it turned into more of a mystery with a dash of sex. I needed more romance and feelings and denied attraction. It also sort of bounced around a bit. At times it was hard to follow the dialog and keep up with who was doing what. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

A VERY JAGUAR CHRISTMAS is the fifth installment in Terry Spear’s contemporary, adult HEART OF THE JAGUAR paranormal, romance series. This is Guardian agent Demetria MacFarlane, and JAG agent Everett Anderson’s story line. A VERY JAGUAR CHRISTMAS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from previous story lines is revealed where necessary. JAG is the policing arm and special forcers agency of the jaguar shifter community. Told from dual third person perspectives (Demetria and Everett) A VERY JAGUAR CHRISTMAS follows the building relationship between two jaguar shifters-Demetria MacFarlane, a Guardian agent for the special forces JAG unit; and JAG Golden Claws agent Everett Anderson- a friends to lovers romance that sees Everett falling for his late former partner’s girlfriend. When a young artic wolf shifter is dropped off at the local jaguar daycare Everett and Demetria are assigned to investigate the whereabouts of the child’s parents, and the who, what and why behind his appearance at the shifter daycare. One year earlier, Demetria’s boyfriend, Matt Bruskrud, was killed while on assignment in the Costa Rican rain forest. Matt’s JAG partner Everett Anderson had always had a ‘crush’ on Demetria but the female jaguar was off limits while Demetria remained in a relationship with Matt. Now partnered together to search for information regarding the foundling jaguar cub, Everett begins a slow seduction of the woman that calls to his heart. A VERY JAGUAR CHRISTMAS merges Terry Spear’s HEART OF THE JAGUAR and HEART OF THE WOLF paranormal series wherein neither species was aware of the other’s existence. With the merger comes the USF-United Shifter Force that will be headed by our leading couple-Demetria and Everett, and badass JAG enforcer Howard Sternum. I am not sure if Terry has planned a spin off series, but I am looking forward to more stories focusing on the newly formed USF. There is a large ensemble cast of supporting and secondary characters including many of the previous story line couples, and a few cross over characters from Terry’s HEART OF THE WOLF series. We are introduced to JAG enforcer Howard Sternum- a bit of a badass jaguar who is called in when a jaguar has gone rogue or needs to be taken out. And of course Corey’s family of artic wolves whose own story has yet to be told. A VERY JAGUAR CHRISTMAS is a fast paced, sweet story that focuses on a small artic wolf shifter child named Corey MacPherson who brings together two supernatural species during the Christmas holidays. The premise is heartwarming and magical; the characters are sweet, enthusiastic and animated; the romance is passionate and fated.
