Can this rebel dragon learn to play by the rules when his destined mate’s life is at stake?

Off to Maui for a relaxing vacation? Surfer Jenna Monroe can only wish. Instead, she’s on the run from a stalker who lusts after her blood. She’d rather comb the beach for lost treasures than venture any deeper into the terrifying world of shapeshifters. There, even the good guys are hard to trust — except for the hot-blooded rebel she can’t get out of her head.

Connor Hoving and his band of Special Forces shifters were planning to leave trouble behind by moving to Maui, but destiny has other ideas. His whole future — and that of his brothers — depends on acing his new job as head of security at an exclusive seaside estate. But Connor can barely get his inner dragon to focus with alluring, off-limits Jenna around. Can this rebel dragon learn to play by the rules when his fated mate’s life is at stake?

The closer Connor and Jenna become, the higher forbidden passions blaze. The more they give in to simmering desire, the more impossible love seems. And the more secrets they uncover, the closer their enemies creep. Vampires and ruthless dragons lurk in the shadows, and it’s impossible to tell whose side fate will take. Only one thing is certain: great heroes don’t get to pick their destinies — only the choices they make.

Maui just got hotter with this exciting new series of steamy, suspenseful paranormal romance!

is a series of sizzling paranormal romances with adult content. This series spins off from Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart. It’s fun to read each series in order, but any of the books can be read as standalone title in its own right. Just be warned: hot alpha shifters, ruthless enemies, and unveiled desires ahead!

No cliff hangers. Each story is a page-turner packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering hot, alpha shapeshifters, you'll love these books! Each includes strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billionaires, military romance, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales!


Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire is a spin-off from Anna Lowe’s Aloha Shifters Jewels of the Heart series. You don’t have to have read the other before starting this one, but we do see previous characters and are right next door to the guys from Jewels of the Heart ^_^.

Rebel Dragon is the first book and it sets the tone for a wonderful story.

We meet Jenna who is the sister to Jody – Lure of the Tiger. Jenna is going to Maui to get away from a stocker. She is treated like the little kid sister, which she is, but we see her come out of the kid sister area and show that she is a strong women who can make chooses for herself and protect those she loves. We also get to meet Connor who’s trying to find a place for himself and his brothers. He’s also kinda a hothead, but wants to change. He and his brothers need this chance and don’t want to mess up what they could have on Maui. Besides that we meet several of the other cast and a sweet little boy. I have to say it’s going to be fun learning about these new characters and seeing what Destiny has in store for them.

Jenna and Connor fit. They make a great couple and you can see the romance bloom. Both find what they needed a place to belong, a home, a mate, and a clan.

We also get a unique story about the Pearls of Desire. I’m very curious to learn more. I liked the story and uniqueness of it all.

Rebel Dragon is a sizzling romance, filled with a rich story, action, adventure, paranormal suspense, and more. I can’t wait to get my hands on Rebel Bear.

Rated: 4 Stars
