Desert fox shifter Ella Kitt is better at risking her life than her heart. Not that she’s expecting to do either when she flies to Maui to help her Special Forces comrades with an easy security job. Or maybe not such an easy job, because she’s forced to work — and live — in close quarters with smoking hot army hero, Jake McBride. Jake isn’t just the one-night-stand she can’t forget — he’s also a human, totally off-limits to shifters of her kind.
Jake has only had one goal since returning stateside after years of active service: to find the woman he loves. But he didn’t expect to find his kickass lover so soon, and he’s caught off guard. There’s something alluring and powerful about Ella — not to mention the mystery that surrounds her and his new employers at Koa Point. How exactly can a group of Special Forces vets afford to live on an exclusive oceanfront estate? What kind of enemy are they on guard against in their sun-kissed corner of paradise? And is that enemy targeting someone at the estate — or Jake?
Sexy shifters and their feisty mates who aren’t shy about loving each other – so, this is an adult, 18+ reader tale.

My Rating: 5 stars
Lure of the Fox is one of those stories that brings with it a lot of emotional baggage. On one side of the coin, we finally get Ella’s story. She’s been a part of this series from the beginning, even if we didn’t see her often. The other side of that emotional coin is that this story brings the Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the heart series to a close. And that is something I really didn’t want to face just yet. There are some series where I get emotionally attached to the characters I’ve come to think of as friends. After all, I’ve lived their lives right along beside them, the good, the bad and the amazing. So, yeah, I get invested in some series more than others. Truth be told, I’m really going to miss this group of shifters who not only gave me some amazing adventures but allowed me to go back down memory lane with the parallel world of Magnum, P.I. It’s been a blast so a huge thank you goes to Anna Lowe for creating such a beautiful world to allow me to get lost in for a while. I’ve loved every second.
Ella and Jake’s story is full of sacrifice, love, steamy sexy times and lots of danger. Ella has known that Jake is her mate since they first met. But Ella is a fox shifter and Jake is a human with no clue that shifters exist. Both were part of an elite military force and faced danger and each other often. Yet Ella managed to avoid anything personal with Jake except for one amazing night that neither can ever forget. She walked away, it was one night that she allowed herself no more. For Ella is holding on to a fear that to claim Jake as her mate might well kill him – and that she cannot risk, not even for their own shared happiness. But the fates or perhaps, brothers-in-arms have different plans for these two and both will end up at Koa Point to face another danger… and each other.
Lure of the Fox is fast paced, dangerous moments full of twists and turns that you may not see coming right at you. We’ll meet up with all of our shifters in this story, welcome a few changes in their lives, and face down a new danger that has fol owed them from across the world. I don’t want to give anything away for this is a closing story that you should experience first hand yourself. You’ll love every moment of it.
There are a few surprises at the ending of this story… but I’ll let you discover what those are. I’ve loved Aloha Shifters: Jewels of the Heart and I’m looking forward to what Ms Lowe brings us next.
