"Primitive setting for an enjoyable erotic shapeshifter"
The priestess Sanika is about to be sacrificed by an evil
priest because she thwarted him by saving his previous
victim, a young girl. Balam, an avatar of the gods, saves
her while in his jaguar form. Avatars are humans chosen by
the gods to do their bidding and they are given shape-
shifting abilities. Unfortunately for Sanika, the priest
has pierced her skin with a poisoned knife. Balam nurses
Sanika back to health and knows she is his mate. How will
Sanika react to this shape-shifter when she awakens?
MYTHS AND LEGENDS: JAGUAR is an enjoyable short paranormal,
erotic romance. However, I must warn readers that this book
isn't for everyone. It is at times brutal and violent,
which is to be expected in a primitive setting. MYTHS AND
LEGENDS: JAGUAR takes place in a primitive South American
setting -- not your usual setting for a romance and I found
the different setting very intriguing. This book contains
one of my favorite themes -- shape-shifters. If you enjoy
erotic romance and shape- shifters, give this story a read.

According to legend, if one's need is great enough, a jaguar will come, a jaguar who can change into a man.
Spread-eagled and naked on a sacrificial altar, Sanika's need is great - and it is answered...by Balam, the huge, black jaguar that rescues her and carries her back to his lair where he nurses her back to health -- and love.
In the hot, bubbling pools and deep darkness of Balam's volcanic cave, Sanika discovers the joys of physical intimacy with a sleek, lithe being who is far more than human. From the first, gentle rasp of his rough tongue against her sensitive skin, she is lost in a sultry, sensual dance of desire.
For Balam, their union is far more profound. This beautiful, sexy woman accepts him for what he is -- half man, half beast. All he has to do is convince her to stay.
