This story was short, sweet and hot.
I did wish that there was a little more background laying for their relationship, but Anya did manage to convey that they had a pre-existing relationship and fondness for each other that made the danger that much more real.
The interactions between Cassandra and Xbal were steamy hot and tender at the same time and it was clear that there was a lot of unresolved sexual tension before so it wasn't a hard stretch to believe in their love.
The wall I ran up against was the premise and why no one had managed to figure it out beforehand. One wonders how much they truly cared at that point. However, I could suspend disbelief for the course of the story, which I suppose is most of what matters.
If you're in the mood for some sizzling sex magic and sweet tender loving, Jaguar in the Sun might be a good fit.
Cassandra Solinar has a bucket list and jaguar god Xbal Montegro is on it. About to undergo an essential rite she won’t survive, she wants to wring every ounce of pleasure out of the time left. Including discovering if Xbal’s sex magic technique is as good as rumored.
It’s no hardship for Xbal to accept Cassandra’s invitation for one erotic encounter, but far more difficult to let her go once he gets a taste of the explosive passion between them. Now he’s determined to hold on to her, no matter what.
Cassie can’t tell Xbal the truth about what she’s about to do. It’s illegal, but without her death the entire world will perish. It’s a job she’s been preparing for from birth, but the loss will be greater now. For in Xbal she finds a soul-deep connection she doesn’t want to lose, and the one thing she made a point of not putting on her bucket list—love.
