Uptown girl meets rough-and-tumble biker — with a shapeshifter twist!

All Cynthia was planning for the weekend was a quick escape to the countryside where her inner dragon can stretch its wings. She wasn’t counting on a handsome, enigmatic wolf shifter coming along and sweeping her off her feet. Cynthia has always been driven by duty rather than desire. But suddenly, she finds herself making reckless, irresponsible choices and telling herself, Just this once…

A night of sizzling passion ensues, but the question remains. Is Cal to blame for making her throw caution to the wind — or is it destiny?

This short story prequel reveals Cynthia’s backstory and sets the stage for her second chance at love, a story told in Rebel Alpha (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire, Book 5). It takes place a decade before she comes to Maui after many cruel twists of fate.

Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other- in other words, there’s going to be sex involved in this story – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

Titles in the Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire series include:  (#1) Rebel Dragon – (#2) Rebel Bear – (#3 )Rebel Lion – (#4) Rebel Wolf –  Rebel Heart (prequel of Cynthia’s backstory) – (#5) Rebel Alpha

The Pearls of Desire series connects to Jewels of the Heart in many ways – location, recurring characters from the Jewels series so in some ways  I’d suggest reading the Jewels of the Heart series first (if you haven’t already)… it’s just a suggestion but I think it would really fill in all the spots of this unique world… plus they’re amazing stories that you shouldn’t miss.  In my opinion, of course.  All of the Jewels of the Heart titles,as well as the Pearls of Desire titles and more  can be found on the Anna Lowe page.

 

Title:  Rebel Heart

Author:  Anna Lowe
Published:  November 5, 2018
My Rating:  5+

I don’t even have words for Cynthia’s past story in Rebel Heart.  I’m breathless, and anxious to move on to Rebel Alpha right now… for I need the rest of Cynthia and Cal’s story and their future… right now.  But not yet.

If there was ever any doubt that Anna Lowe is indeed a master storyteller, dispel that thought right now.  We are taken from the warm shores of Maui on a clear night and tumble through time to a crisp fall night, a lonely road and two people meant to meet as we follow Cynthia’s memories of a time gone by, of a man, and of a destiny that neither could deny.

The varied emotions of this short story will grab your heart and not let go.  Rebel Heart answers some questions that have been in my mind since the Pearls of Desire began… and now have opened up even more questions that beg for answers.  If you have followed either Jewels of Desire or Pearls of Desire do not miss this short prequel story that leads into Cynthia’s story in Rebel Alpha.  This is a must read, folks, don’t miss it.  Anna – you amaze me, what an awesome lead in to the coming story, I cannot wait.

I own a Kindle edition of Rebel Heart.
