    Lure of the Dragon is a wonderful start to a new series by Anna Lowe. It’s full of suspense, mystery, and romance.   Lure of the Dragon shows us that everyone has secrets and that not ever supernatural is good. The story was a little slow to start and it took me sometime to get into, but once I did, I enjoyed it.   We are introduced to a band of brothers, men who severed in a special military unit together. These men have been through a lot and have formed a family. I feel in love with the shi Lure of the Dragon is a wonderful start to a new series by Anna Lowe.

The story was a little slow to start and it took me sometime to get into, but once I did, I enjoyed it.   We are introduced to a band of brothers, men who severed in a special military unit together. These men have been through a lot and have formed a family. I feel in love with the shifter brothers that were introduced. Each one is unique, has their own personalities, and pasts. I’m curious to learn about each one and see who their mates will be. I loved how the author brought all her characters together and that we are still in the same world with ties to Twin Moon. The plot has a few twists and surprises. I do have to point out that the first kiss between Tessa and Kai, Holy Smokes it’s smoking. It was great to get our first taste of dragons, good and bad, fated mates and lost treasures. I’m curious to see where this new series goes and how it all unfolds. Rated: 3.5 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Anna Lowe with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

    Tessa, a private chef, had no clue shifters were real, until one tried to claim her as another helped her escape. Nothing like learning the hard way, right? Yeah, something tells me Tessa isn't finished with the lessons yet. I have a feeling there's more to come. Kai, a dragon shifter, learned his own lesson due to a childhood experience. Never fall in love with a human, but when the one that belongs with you appears, desperate for help, how could he possibly adhere to that lesson? When Kai, and h Tessa, a private chef, had no clue shifters were real, until one tried to claim her as another helped her escape. Nothing like learning the hard way, right? Yeah, something tells me Tessa isn't finished with the lessons yet. I have a feeling there's more to come. Kai, a dragon shifter, learned his own lesson due to a childhood experience. Never fall in love with a human, but when the one that belongs with you appears, desperate for help, how could he possibly adhere to that lesson? When Kai, and his fellow shifters and former military teammates, learn of Tessa's situation, as well as the connection to someone they're already aware of, they agree to help her, though Silas, the leader, insists upon reminding Kai of their no humans pact. But something draws Kai and Tessa to one another, a feeling when the other is near, as well as a yearning that won't be denied for long. However, Kai must uncover why the other shifter is after Tessa, what secrets her family may hold, the origin of an heirloom left to her. Plus, factor in Kai's hesitancy as his present reminds him of his past and how one person's decision impacted everything. Will Kai and Tessa's story end as his parents' did? Can Kai keep her safe? Is Tessa fully human? Or was her family keeping secrets from her? What happens when Kai and Tessa act on their desire for one another? Will the thoughts and desires Tessa has dreamed of for so long finally make sense? Has Kai truly found his mate? Is their a HEA for them? Extras: This volume includes two short bonus stories featuring Kai and Tessa's mating bite and their honeymoon where Tessa learns to fly. One-click now and follow along as circumstances lead a woman to discover her future and a man learns history doesn't have to repeat itself. This was a great beginning to a new series and I'm looking forward to the remaining characters' stories. Boone's book is next and I can't wait to see what fate has in store for him. **I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.**

    This had some good elements, but overall, it was boring. I mean, I love dragons, I don't mind insta-love, there's some danger involved, but there was a lack of spark between the characters to really set this off. I read this over the weekend, and I'm struggling to remember their names, so that's never a good sign. I didn't think it was horrible, but I don't think I'll continue with this series. Just not for me. For more reviews, visit This had some good elements, but overall, it was boring.

Absolutely love this first book. It’s a nice easy read/listen and I really enjoyed that the special force team are different shifters with very individual distinctive characters also loved that it was based in Maui a bucket list place for me. Looking forward to more in team finding their HEA especially there leader.

This is well-written for this genre, though it was a bit slow at times. Grammar and usage are actually on the better side. Character development isn’t bad either. But the author used stupid as a plot device, and for me that is unforgivable.

I read and reviewed that some time ago. The bonus scenes were cute but really I could have lived without them. In fact, I learned something about myself. I don't like bonus scenes.

Tessa is running to Hawaii from a demented customer that just turned into something she ever only read about, a dragon and her neighbor into a fox! But Ella the fox says her friends in Hawaii will help her, so off she goes, Ella who works for Twin Moon Ranch by the way, forgot to mention how hot her welcoming committee would be. She is about to be introduced to the world of shifters and a little bit more grandma failed to ever mention. Kai never thought he would see, or smell anything so divine in his lifetime. Humans are off limits though unless.......Now he just has to keep her safe from other draqons that want to get their hands on his treasure and explain to her that she is a Fire Maiden the most precious treasure to a dragon, good luck with that. She'll love to hear that he is part dragon after just a day of being attacked by a lunatic dragon and discovering that shifters really do exist. I can't wait to read the other guys stories.

I loved it unbelievable, absolutely phenomenal I am without words it is so good you must read it, this SERIES is going to be epic.      Question for you?? Did you ever watch Magnum PI? Whose Jonathan? I'm still trying to figure out..      Tessa Byrne is a human Private Chef and she's doing well for her self under her business "Thérèse Brûler.” Than going to her new client Damien Morgan who lives at a cliffside estate in the Camelback Mountains in Phoenix. Needless to say it was an eye opener, the scariest thing she has ever seen in her life. Damien came in and smelt her and started morphing into a dragon. A DRAGON Shifter who knew they existed? If that wasn't bad enough, he said some awful things. Now thanks to her neighbor Ella she's in Maui, Hawaii at the Koa Point Estate. The huge gate itself is scary, should she go in? Can she ask shifters for help?  Tessa has never been around shifter, Ella said that Koa means an elite class of warrior. OMG!! what is she going to do?      Kai Llewellyn is a Dragon Shifter and part of a secret, elite corps. There were five shifters each with a monster inside. Kai's dragon was driving him crazy. He wouldn't be quite, he kept talking and talking, saying that she was this mate, he needs to claim her, every five seconds. At that point Kai started to believe she was possibly his mate. The biggest question of all was WHY is Damien Morgan after Tessa? She's nothing but a human!      A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

    Aloha! And welcome to a new shifter series. I have to admit I have a soft spot for dragon shifters. That's why when I saw Anna Lowe's Lure of the Dragon I had to grab a KU copy. So glad I did! Kia is struggling with so many issues, not the least of which is his fear of and lack of trust in humans. Tessa is a chef who only recently learned--24-hours ago--about the world of shifters. After a terrifying attack, Tessa fled, forced to seek help from a man who hides the same type of horrible monster as Aloha! And welcome to a new shifter series.

It is a fantastic battle of the heart with these two, but one that doesn't disappoint. Lots of steamy, hot passion and loving devotion and an introduction to some other wonderful shifters. The story is fast-paced and set on the beautiful island of Maui and it isn't just the landscape that's gorgeous. Kia and Tessa battle their feelings, but they are destined to be together and the road to their happiness is such a winding, good tale. If you're a PNR fan and love shifters of all kinds, you will enjoy this series as there a little of everything here. I recommend this book to romance and PNR fans.

Damien wants Tessa as his mate because she has dragon blood in her lineage and also because she has an emerald with mystic powers that her grandmother gave her. Kai arrives and there is a battle, but Tessa and Kai defeat Damien and his henchmen. But it is not over yet, there are 4 more gems to find and so there will be 4 more stories - YAY.

    Anna Lowe has an exciting new series called Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart. The series starts in Lure of the Dragon with an incident that leads Tessa to seek out help from Kai and his band of brothers. It has all the story line twists and surprises to keep the pages turning as well as the heat and loving of shifters claiming their mates. I highly recommend you start your next Hawaiian adventure with this outstanding story.

    Anna is one of my favorite authors. This latest dragon story is paranormal romance perfection. Strong characters, vivid imagery and a magical tale to wind the imagination and create the perfect escape. Once again Anna has a beautiful way of capturing the surroundings as well as writing strong characters. Absolutely in love with this story and anxiously awaiting the next.

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Of all of Anna Lowe’s shifter PNR stories, I think that I’ve found one where I love the shift (a dragon in this case) more than the man. Kai’s dragon reminded me of the Blue Moon Saloon bears which made me love him even more. While he was former military and fierce, his dragon was like a big teddy bear that I just wanted to hug up to. This story introduces a whole new series based in Hawaii and while I’ve never been there, I can certain I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The story was fast, mysterious, funny at times, and I love the heroine of this story holds more than her own against Kai, his cousin, and a pursuing enemy dragon. Despite her initial situation, she was pretty kickass! I can’t wait for the next story in the series!

    I love how the author brings her characters together, this is a great start to a new series and we are still in her same world with ties to Twin Moon. Our focus now is on an elite team with very special skills and a woman who is more than she knows. The plot has twists and turns and leaves doors open to explore in further books. In this one we get our first taste of dragons, good and bad, treasure and fated mate. I was gifted this ARC and voluntarily chose to review it here.

I remembered liking it as I prepared to give it another listen but not many details came to mind. As the story unfolded though I quickly remembered things. That's a really good thing for and audiobook IMO since I'm always listening while doing other things. If I remember then that means that the author made a lasting impression. You know what they say about first impressions. However, surprisin Rating: ❤❤❤❤.5 Heat Rating: 🔥🔥🔥 Narrator Performance: 🎧🎧🎧🎧 I first listened to this almost two years ago. I remembered liking it as I prepared to give it another listen but not many details came to mind. As the story unfolded though I quickly remembered things. That's a really good thing for and audiobook IMO since I'm always listening while doing other things. If I remember then that means that the author made a lasting impression. You know what they say about first impressions. However, surprisingly, I liked the book more the second time around. That's not something that happens often. Let's talk about the series set up. I love how Anna Lowe has it laid out. She created a group of shifters - we get their names, animals and a concise one or two line description early on in the story therefore getting a good idea how many books in the series there will be - who ended up on the same elite Special Forces team in spite of the fact that the humans in her world don't know about shifters. They stuck together after leaving the military and now they all live together on a beautiful sprawling Hawaiian property that some nameless, absent and rich guy owns. Then there is the series name and logo - Jewels of the Heart with a 💎. From that we can assume that actual jewels are involved in the stories. And yes indeed by the end of the story the listener knows how gemstones fit into the series. The author has laid out a basic outline for her readers so right with this first in series story you know whether or not you're going to want to invest your time in it. In her. I LOVE THAT! Lowe's style might not seem that way to others but that's how I see it. To me it felt like she laid it all out there and said "This is my series break down. Are you in?" I find that courageous and admirable. Oh. Wow. I rambled on there didn't I? Let me wrap this up. CHARACTERS: Diverse. Mysterious. The MCs were likeable. Intriguing secondary characters. What's with Boone's flirtation? THE VILLAIN: Properly scary, sickening and manipulative. Plus I'm already fearing another villain that was mentioned. I wonder if we'll have to wait until Silas' book to learn more about him? THE CONNECTION: Palpable. THE STORY: Well paced. Enjoyable. Breathless action and romance. ABOUT THE NARRATOR: I was charmed with Kelsey Osborne's performance. She pulled me into the story quickly. I couldn't help but be pleased with her pace, tone and inflections. Some thing that could have been better? Differentiating the males. I would have also preferred a bit more from her in the acting department.
