TEMPTING THE JAGUAR packs a wicked punch! Bursting with action, it's a story that will entice new readers to check out Katie Reus's paranormal romance series or give loyal readers another reason to rejoice. I was floored by the amount of intense action and plot in this shorter story. Reus presents a well-rounded romance that impressed me. With a sexy but arrogant hero in Rainer and a feisty, yet fun heroine in Estrella, it will definitely entice readers to read more of Reus's work. After reading ...more

Katie Reus writes some awesome stories with shifters. My only complaint with her Cravings books is that they are all too short! As long as you go in knowing the books are short and not full length novels, you will enjoy them.

In this story, we find Rainer, a werewolf shifter who is sent to find out why Estrella, a jaguar shifter is on Rainer's Alpha's land without making herself known. Well, she is packless and knows nothing about pack life so she wasn't even aware she was supposed to make herse

I was eager to read this book just from the cover alone but then add in the jaguar shifter aspect and I knew I had to get my hands on it. I had no trouble sinking my teeth into this story. The author did not make you wait long for the romance or action. The moment Rainer eyes found Estrella you knew the chemistry between the two would be off the charts.

This book can be read as a standalone; however, if you have read Destined Mate and Protector's Mate you will recognize some references to the ch

"Tempting the Jaguar" by Katie Reus. A paranormal romance novella.

Ohhhhhh! I really like this novella! Exciting action scenes, steamy romance scenes and werewolves and jaguars and vampires! Oh my! This novella is part of a series that technically doesn't really have a name (I checked on the author's website) but the main male character of Rainer is the brother of Alaric (who is in the novella "Protector's Mate".

Rainer has found a jaguar shifter in his pack's territory. She didn't notify anyone t

Estrella was orphaned at the age of five and was raised in the human world. She has no clue about the shifter laws and protocols. So when the arrogant and sexy as sin wolf, Rainer, confronts her about not notifying his pack she was living in their territory, she doesn’t know what he is talking about. She refuses to answer his questions. So he decides to follow her home, but on the way she is attacked by vampires and Rainer saves her.
The attraction between them burns red hot. They are on the run

Estrella Rios is a lone Jaguar shifter… a woman without a pack, and she's never known pack life. Raised by humans since she was five, Estrella considers herself a human, with a pesky side of shifting. She's never told anyone what she is and knows nothing about shifter life or protocol.

One night while working at an art gallery, Rainer (brother of the Alpha's second-in-command) approached Estrella

Beautiful Surprise!!!

Rainer and Estrella......such a beautiful couple, they complement each other.....Where Estrella lacks in experience and knowledge of a pack's life, Rainer has lived through a lot.

Like the way Rainer was willing to kill to protect Estrella and vice versa....Rainer and Estrella deciding to live together and him teaching her about supernatural beings and their way of life away from pack before mating was a great move.

Thought it would be a continuation of the previous story/characters. A little disappointed it was a whole new cast. It was enjoyable.

I liked how this short connected with the author’s series. I felt sad for Estrella for all that was lost in her life, but loved how she stood up to Rainer with her ignorant ways of shifters. It was fun to see Rainer not quite sure what to do with Estrella. I loved how Rainer instantly took to Estrella and did what he could to help her with the vamps. I was surprised when Estrella’s history came out, but was glad with her choice at the end.

I like reading Rainer's story with ties to the previous books. While good, this one was a little rushed and had an abrupt ending. I assume she's going to continue more with the next one...which I thought I had but apparently not... I like more of a complete story in my books and not be left hanging.

It was a short but satisfying novel. I became a fan of Reus's writing style after the Moon Shifter series and this book didn't disappoint me either. It's more superficial due to its length but I still loved the hero and the heroine and enjoyed reading about their whirlwind love story.

There is more to Jaguar shifter Estrella than even she knows and I loved joining her on the journey to discovery. Very well written, I was hooked and couldn't put it down.

Loved it. Had just the right amount of tension and surprises thrown in to keep the story twisting and turning in the steamiest of ways.
