Flora Reviews… Hunted by a Jaguar (Eternal Mates #4) by Felicity Heaton
I actually read Hunted by a Jaguar back in 2015. However I wasn’t really writing proper reviews way back then. Therefore, I thought that I’d re-read it and write a proper review and share it with you today.
Read: 5th – 8th February 2015
Re-Read: 16th – 17th July 2017
My Goodreads Rating: 5 Stars
…So what’s this book about?
Hunted by a Jaguar is the forth novel (approx 218 pages) in Ms Heaton’s paranormal romance series, Eternal Mates. There will be 15 books in the series by the end of 2017. This story mainly features cat shapeshifters and elves with demons, fallen angels, sorcerers and humans also making appearances.
The world is the same as Ms Heaton’s London Vampires series. However, you don’t need to read the previous books in either series to enjoy this one. There are cross-over characters and storylines mentioned from previous books. However, Ms Heaton weaves any relevant information that the reader needs into this story. I can also confirm that the romance aspect is concluded by the end of the book in her signature Happy Ever After style.
I focus my reviews on how the story was told rather than the plot itself. I’m looking at the author’s writing style, how they paced their plots and how well they constructed their characters and setting. Therefore, my reviews don’t contain spoilers or reveal plot twists.
Here’s what the official blurb has to say about the story.
New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Paranormal Romance Author Felicity Heaton presents: Hunted by a Jaguar (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 4)
A jaguar shifter with a dark secret, Kyter has spent his entire life running from his demons. When a tragedy takes him back to his pride’s village, he is set on a path of vengeance that will see him collide with the terrible ghosts of his past and a beautiful vision of his future.
Iolanthe deals in finding artefacts for discerning clients, but this time her client is one of the deadliest men in Hell and her mission has the highest stakes imaginable. Failure is not an option when your life is on the line, but things take a dangerous turn when she crosses paths with a handsome and mysterious male on the hunt for the same artefact—a male who declares she is his eternal mate.
Can Iolanthe resist Kyter’s wicked allure and find the artefact before he does? Can Kyter face his demons and win the heart of his fated female? Or will this deadly game of cat and mouse claim both of their lives?
…So, what did I like about it?
I am already a fan of Ms Heaton’s writing style (have I mentioned that before lol); it’s the way she weaves her story, creating a very believable paranormal world and fills it with complex, multifaceted characters that make her books so easy for me to read. Hunted by a Jaguar does not disappoint.
I enjoyed the twists, turns and surprises that Ms Heaton gives us here. This paranormal romance novel made me giggle quite a bit, I was already a Kyter fan (many scenes throughout the Eternal Mates books take place in his nightclub, Underworld,) but I loved getting to know him better. Iolanthe is exactly what I want from a main female character; strong, intelligent, funny and loyal! Fabulous! Yes, I did shed a tear or two during the tender and sad scenes and the fighting and action scenes fed my adrenalin fix – in other words I was gripped and couldn’t stop reading!
I need to confess that one of the reasons why I love Ms Heaton’s books so much is the sex; she makes the most explicit sexual scenes very romantic (it takes a very talented writer to accomplish this), these erotic interludes are balanced really well with beautifully written imagery and poignant internal dialogue. Ms Heaton gives her characters such depth that they become real, I found myself getting caught up with the passion but the tender insights into Kyter and Iolanthe’s inner fears and emotions added to the growth of their love and trust in each other was heart-warming to read.
…So, ummm, was there anything I disliked about it?
…So, basically what I’m saying is…
Wow! I feel breathless – what an amazing paranormal romance story. It’s got everything that I’m looking for in a book; mystery, action, romance, passion and plenty of well written steamy sex scenes. Couldn’t stop reading this book!
There are scenes of explicit sexual content and graphic violence in this book. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who aren’t offended by scenes of this sort.
I’d recommend Hunted by a Jaguar to adults who love their reads steamy with passion. Especially if you’re a fan of relationship and romance stories.
