She can’t remember her past. He wishes he could forget his.

Nina only has the vaguest memories of who she is or why two men tried to kill her one terrifying night. All she knows is how quickly she’s falling in love with her rescuer — a man with secrets of his own. With her, he’s kind, gentle, and fun — but there’s a ferocious, animal side to Boone and the group of Special Forces vets he shares an exclusive seaside estate with. Can Boone help her uncover the past before the killers catch up with her? Or will an unexpected twist of fate steal her only chance at true love?

If fate were to come knocking on the door of Boone Hawthorne’s beach bungalow, he’d shove it right back into the sea — especially if it started whispering any nonsense about destined mates. But one night, a woman washes up on his private stretch of beach. Before the wolf shifter knows it, he’s breaking every personal rule for her and making promises he’s not sure he can keep. Investigating Nina’s past means crossing paths with a powerful archenemy, cutthroat criminals, and a ruthlessly selfish ex-lover who will stop at nothing to get Boone back in her bed. Can he solve the mystery of Nina’s identity while protecting her — without risking his own heart?

ALOHA SHIFTERS: JEWELS of the HEART is a thrilling new series set on the tropical shores of Maui. 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!

* No cliff hangers. Each story is a standalone paranormal romance with adult content. The perfect read for fans of strong heroines, alpha heroes, werewolves and shapeshifters, billonaires, military romance, paranormal suspense, action-adventure romance, fantasy romance, and exotic, tropical locales! *


Destining is bringing the stones and mates together. She will not be denied.

Lure of the Wolf is book two, but can be read as a stand-a-lone. It was a wonderful, delightful, and sweet read in the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart series.

Lure of the Wolf is an exciting, delicious, and satisfying read. The action and suspense kept me on the edge of my set. The characters are interesting and the story is well told. I just love each of the five “brothers in arms”. These brothers are retired military men that have formed their own unique pack, clan, group. Each one is unique and nothing is off limits except falling in love with humans.

Boone is adorable and Nina is so kindhearted. They are just perfect for each other. You can see their connection throughout and how well they work together. The story is captivating and intriguing. Just trying to figure out what will happen next is exciting.

This is such a fun series. You can’t go wrong with Anna Lowe and her shifter stories.

Rated: 4 Stars
