Ran VicMoran has no intention of settling down. He wants to play with his computer and keep tabs on what is going on in the world to protect his new home in Costa Rica. Olivia Sancerre doesn’t act like most of the female jaguars within her community. She is quiet and tries very hard not to be like her mother. When Ran and Olivia get together, sparks fly.

In the second Black Jag book, the author takes you on an emotional up and down journey. Black Passion is about the volatile relationship between Ran and Olivia, as well as the danger that could change the jaguar world as they know it. The twists and turns in this book will keep your heart pounding and your mind guessing. The reappearance of the Hunters from the first book adds to the tension and mystery.

The relationships between the characters are very realistic and every bit as complex as you find in everyday life. The surprises that turn up in this story will make you wonder how this story will be resolved, as well as sets the stage for the next story. I was very intrigued by the familial dynamics that were introduced toward the end that can have long-reaching effects on this particular society. I am waiting with bated breath for the next installment in the Black Jag series. I recommend that you read each story in this series in order to get the most out of the storyline.
