Publisher's Summary

Uptown girl meets rogue biker - with a shape-shifter 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? 

Maui just got hotter with this exciting new series of steamy, suspenseful paranormal romance!

This short-story prequel can be listened to at any point in the Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire series (all stand-alone audiobooks with no cliff-hangers). "Rebel Heart" reveals Cynthia’s backstory and sets the stage for her second chance at love, a story told in the series finale, Rebel Alpha (Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire, Book Five - a full-length novel like the rest of the series).

Aloha Shifters: Pearls of Desire is a series of sizzling paranormal romances with adult content. No cliff-hangers. Each story is a pause-resister packed with action, emotion, and romance! If you like Magnum, PI and smoldering-hot alpha shape-shifters, you'll love these audiobooks. Join these strong heroines and their alpha heroes in exotic, tropical locales full of danger and suspense!

Rebel Heart

This book is such a tease! I have always felt so much for Cynthia and knew her first love was epic. With the ending this novella has I can only hope she will have a second chance at perfection in her future.

LOVE ON 2 WHEELS💥💥💥💥💥

I had a tear or two in my eye as those last words broke my heart. I knew before l started reading, that this story of Cynthia's past would be a humdinger. I listened to this young Cynthia and savored each word, each description, colour, smell and emotion. I felt Cynthia's freedom and knew in my bones that the near future would bring bitter and heartbreaking turmoil. Cal, he came to life for me, big, generous, soft and fell head over heels for the forbidden fruit. Ah... that bad boy image. This is Cynthia's back story and lays the foundation for the next book Rebel Alpha. l can't wait. I'm totally sold! If you've read Anna lowes books you don't need any convincing. The narrator does a fantastic job, she is a pleasure to listen to. These stories are gems. Recommended reading.🤓💥💥💥💥💥

Enjoyable short story.

Enjoyable short story. Having read the book REBEL ALPHA and knowing what happens with these two lovely characters this is quite sweet and sad to listen too.
BOOK REVIEW
This is a quick teaser/taster for REBEL ALPHA, book 5 in the Aloha Shifters, Pearls of Desire series.
Such a short taster for a story that I am waiting impatiently to read but so emotional that I had tears in my eyes.
You don’t need to have read the previous books or this short but it will make reading Rebel Alpha that much more enjoyable.
Please note this is just a short sweet taster, not a full book but saying that any book written by this author is a winner for me.

Great story

Uptown Dragon 🐉girl meets a loner Wolf shifter biker. This is Cynthia and Cal's story and it takes place a decade before we meet Cynthia and she and her son comes to maui.
Very sweet and hot but still leaves it open as to why there not together. Guess that in Rebel alpha we will know why. i so can't wait for that book to come out. Lol . What could break true mate apart? I am tream Cal! Lol fun romantic and so sweet but a little sad there not together yet.

Quick prequel

Oh man! What a tease! I don't usually read prequel books because I don't like the waiting afterwards. This did make me want to know the rest of Cynthia and Cal's story. I liked the opposites attract scenario, and they have great chemistry. I'm excited to see what happened to keep them apart. I wasn't happy that Cynthia moved on after whatever happened; at least so far with the little I know of her story. I wish a certain scenario would've player out differently. I don't want to give spoilers so I'll leave it at that. Quick read that is a great lead into an interesting story! The narrator did a good job; a little more emotion in her voice, her tone, but it was still an enjoyable listen.

Good

Good story. The characters were interesting and fun to get to know. Dialogue was witty. I liked the book but wish it had been longer though.

Great Segue to Rebel Alpha

This is a great segue to Rebel Alpha. It gives us a little background about young Cynthia. Interesting that she comes from a wealthy family. You could feel the almost instant attraction of Cynthia and Cal, the biker wolf. Ms. Lowe did a great job of whetting our appetite for more about Cynthia, Cal and especially her son's father. Great job by Kelsey Osborne. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Nice Prequel

I enjoyed this short prequel to Cynthia's story. It gave us a peek into Cynthia's mind. This little glimpse into their meeting was steamy. Definitely makes me want to jump into the next book.

I enjoyed the narrator performance as well.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of the audiobook. I also purchased the Kindle version.

Can't Wait For Rebel Alpha Now!



This is the shortest of prequels but it shows us that Cynthia has a heart, we've always known that she would die for Joey but she never seemed to mourn the loss of her husband, at least not openly, well know we know why! This glimpse from Anna Lowe shows us the young Cynthia before she suffered loss when she believed in following her own desires, in pushing the boundaries, when in some ways she believed herself entitled to choose to find her own happiness.

I am now really impatient for the whole story and hope that this time Cynthia gets to be happy with her fated mate. As for Cal, well I’m already a little in love....

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Not goodbye

Cynthia is from a noble dragon line. Cal is a rough lone wolf. When they meet on a dark highway and he gives her a ride home on the back of his motorcycle it is hard to part. You see they are fated for each other but fate is fickle and now is not their time. A great prequel. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.
