Imagine a world where a sleek, dark jaguar wanders after twilight, seeking his mate, offering her protection from harm and the most sensual nights her heart could ever desire....

At dusk he prowled the Southwest, a huge, sleek black jaguar with startling blue eyes and a man's thoughts. A shape-shifting Sentinel, Dolan Trevio projected an intensely animalistic aura that hid

I was pleasantly surprised by this series. My thought was eh, it's a numbered romance that just happens to feature shifters. How much excitement could it possibly contain (outside the usual TSTL h and overbearing jackass H). A lot in fact. The h...has issues with the shifters. Her mother was a shifter and... her help never arrived, she was badly injured, and died. The shifters didn't figure the kid worth fooling with since she couldn't shift. Ooops. The H's brother was the help that died en rout ...more
Such an intriguing series. I started with #5 "Kodiak Chained", loved it, and decided I wanted to read the series in order. As fascinating as are the concepts (amulets, tracings, wards, shields, etc), what holds my attention is the writing and the style of story telling - a mixture of action, suspense, and introspection. The plot itself is fairly simple but it's the richness of the writing that moves this series into the upper echelon of paranormal romance. The characters are complex, talented, a ...more
The first of her Sentinels series of paranormal romances, Jaguar Night is basically Doranna Durgin Does Shapeshifters. The worldbuilding is a bit thin for my tastes: you've got the Sentinels vs. the Atrum Core, who are two warring factions theoretically descended from a pair of half-brothers in ancient Britain, one a Druid and the other from a Roman father. The Druid descendants are the Sentinels who can shapeshift and do your basic grab bag of other magical abilities, while the Atrum Core are t ...more
This was a good book. I loved the characters and the story line. I wouldn't mind reading it again either. There were emotions, action, some suspense, history, connections, and written well enough to pull you in. I laughed some, got angry, encouraged the characters, held my breath, and wanted to put the Ka-Pow moves on some people. The ending was great and had me almost standing up and pumping my fist in a 'Oh yeah, take that you puny pompous puss pocket of an a**'. Sorry...had to get it out of m ...more

Good plot, characters, and a believable story line- it's a good paranormal romance quickie.
This was a good paranormal romance. I enjoy stories of shapeshifters, and this fit the bill quite nicely. If you're looking for a quick fun read, with a lot of romantic tension and a hero who is not infallible, but needs help from the heroine and admits it, this is a great read for you.

I thought the book was okay. It held my interest for the first 3/4 of the book, but the ending just kind of dragged on. And I felt like there could have been more closure. All in all, though, it was a good read.
Good story, well written and love the whole Sentinel thing they had going. the reason for 3 stars I felt some scenes just dragged out too much. Im hoping the rest in this series dont do the same.

This is a shiftshaper story but I have to admit that I did not finish this one. I just could not get into the story and felt that the lead characters did not have much chemistry.
A read once... Not bad but I won't be actively pursuing the rest of the series.

1. Jaguar Night (2009)
2. Lion Heart (2009)
3. Wolf Hunt (2010)
Paranormal Suspense at it's best. Strong characters, strong supporting characters, great storyline.
And, villains that you just love to hate. Great entertainment!

I cant say anything bad about the Sentinel Series! everytime another book comes out, i just want more! Love to re-read these too :) cant go wrong!
I really enjoyed this book. The downside is it was felt rushed to me. The plot was great as were the leads. I can't wait to read more of this series.
