In order to fully appreciate fantasy stories, IMO, one has to completely suspend disbelief and dive in, head first.

The Jaguar Legacy is one few fantasy/shape-shifting novels I have delved into - normally I wouldn't touch one with a 40 foot barge-pole!

The premise is simple - Charley Underhill, an investigative reporter - forces her way into an archeological dig, determined to write a story which will resurrect her career. In spite of being attracted to the archeologist in charge of the dig - Alis

The setting is an archaeological expedition, led by sexy Scots archaeologist Alistair Kincaid, to find a hidden temple among the ruins of an Olmec city deep in the Mexican jungle. Thankfully there’s very little archaeology geek-speak, though. The plot is what happens when journalist - sorry, I mean investigative reporter - Charley Underhill, who is determined to rebuild her fractured career at the expense of Kincaid’s reputation, by pipping him to the post and revealing all about his most recent

I enjoyed The Jaguar Legacy immensely. There were a couple of spots that were slow for me but overall I really enjoyed the book.

Charley is an investigative journalist whose career has gone down the drain all because she was diagnosed with “panic attacks” and almost causes herself and a colleague to die in a car crash because of one. Charley’s mother is a full blown alcoholic and the only way she feels as if she can help her is by boosting her career in order to send her mother off to rehab. When

Reporter Charley gatecrashes an archeological dig in the jungle, intending to write an article on it. She falls for irritating...I mean commanding head archeologist Kincaid. There is also a side plot relating to past lives, curses and shapeshifting.

This book is well written, easy to read, and enjoyable if you remember that it's supposed to be tongue-in-cheek and of a specific genre.

I found the characters quite one-dimensional and predictable (feisty lead female, overbearing yet inexplicably appe

The Journey:
This book has a good mixture of many things: archeology, ancient civilizations, centuries old curses, reincarnation, shape shifting. I know it sounds like a lot but Fisher skillfully weaves them together for a fast-paced, entertaining romp through the jungle.

The Characters:
I loved the character Fisher created in the hero, Alistair Kincaid – a sexy Scottish archeologist with a penchant for tacky Hawaiian shirts. I could so picture Gerard Butler in this role. Yum! Charlie is interestin
Full Review posted on Book Lovin Mamas

I recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure, history, and mystery. There’s not too much romance in this book, but when there is, it’s steamy. I will say this, Charley gave Alistair a hard time…and I liked her even more because of it. She never made it easy for him. =)
This book was so and so for me. I did like certain things like I stated, but it just didn’t enthrall me like I was expecting it too. I plan on reading the next book from Maureen; I got r

"The Jaguar Legacy" by Maureen Fisher is a fun read that combines the excellent chemistry of an accomplished romantic comedy with exciting and plentiful paranormal elements.
A reporter intrudes on a dig in Mexico and gets stuck there. The director of the dig and her develop a kind of love/ hate relationship. Her ambition and his past (and ex-wife) seem to be standing between them. Mystic magical powers, shapeshifting and reincarnation come into play as well and bring the story to a different leve
Sabrina Devonshire
Reporter Charley Underhill gets more than she bargained for when she decides to write an article about an archaeological site and heads off to the remote Mexican jungle. When Dr. Alistair Kincaid isn’t distracting her with his hot body and sexy Scottish mannerisms, strange flashbacks she can’t explain are making her question her sanity. This book is a wonderful mix of romance and outdoor adventure with some fascinating paranormal elements thrown in the mix. A very satisfying read.

I simply couldn't put this Paranormal Romantic Suspense down. The location was amazing and the characters kept me reading.

I write sassy romance with smokin’ hot heroes, kick-ass heroines, tons of humor, and always an animal or two. My goal as a writer is to transport readers into a world of romance, mystery, and fun. Warning: Laughing out loud has been known to smudge mascara and leave some readers short of breath.

Transplanted from Scotland to Canada at the tender age of seven, I’m a voracious reader, volunteer for a
