Tall, sleek Detective Charlotte Caissie of the New Orleans
Police Department is called to investigate two men
slaughtered with their throats clawed out. The crime seems
more like an animal massacre with gore strewn over the
street. Cee Cee goes directly to the suspected source, mob
leader Jimmy Legere, and his striking henchman, Max Savoie.
Max and Cee Cee share an unusual attraction dating back to
an incident years ago that still consumes Cee Cee's
In spite of being on opposite sides of the law, Cee Cee and
Max engage in hot, feral sex even after she learns that Max
is a shape shifter with fur, claws and fangs. Max uses his
powers to protect Cee Cee and she is torn to protect him
when everything points to Max as the predator. Max's true
childhood is revealed to further embed the feelings Cee Cee
feels for the lost little boy in the swamp years ago.
Keeping the mob at bay for the NOPD, while loving a feared
mobster, forces Cee Cee to choose between love and her own
deeply held belief in fighting for what she considers just.
The reader won't find more excitement anywhere that keeps
the blood pumped up than in this thriller by Nancy
Gideon. The book has an excellent storyline and keeps
the interest from page one to the end. Your heart will
break in sympathy and love for the lonely little
animal/child that's left alone in the swamp for weeks
fending off the evils while protecting the body of his dead
mother. I consider this author extremely talented and look
forward to further stories in her shape shifter series.
The first book in a new series about a female detective in
New Orleans who's irresistibly attracted to a crime boss's
shape-shifting right-hand man.
Homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is dedicated to
bringing down the crime boss responsible for her fatherâ€™s
murder. Using Jimmy Legereâ€™s right hand man is a dangerous
gamble, not just because of his ruthless reputation as more
monster than man, but because her feelings for her
mysterious and irresistible enemy are â€¦ complicated.
Thereâ€™s just something about Max.
Rescued from the swamps as a child, Max Savoie owes Jimmy
Legere his life. Existing silently in his rescuerâ€™s shadow,
he heeds only one voice. Until Charlotte Caissie awakens
his emotions and tests his loyalties. Forced to step
outside his cautious rules to save her, he risks more than
his heart . . . he risks exposing his dark secret.
Working together means facing the truth about who and what
they are, and what they need from one another. If Max is
the murderer she seeks, Cee Cee might be his next victim.
She canâ€™t afford to trust any man. Good thing Max isnâ€™t one.
