Angelique Palermo, Angel to her friends, has always known
she was adopted but she has no idea how different her life
should have been. She is about to find out who and what she
is with the help of a new partner in the casino she and her
brother inherited. She was born to live UNDER THE BAYOU
MOON as a gator shifter.
Jacques Bertrand is the leader of the biggest gator pod in
Louisiana and he is quickly approaching a benchmark in his
life. If he cannot find his mate by his 30th birthday he
will lose his shifting ability and his leadership. It
shouldn't be a problem because gators are mated at birth
but his mate was abducted and he has been searching for her
for years. Finally he finds her in of all places Las Vegas.
He is ecstatic but cautious because she has no knowledge of
their way of life. He has to teach his Angel to control her
shift, how mating is done as shifters and what it is to
fall in love.
Angel is thrilled to know why she is different but very
wary ... he claims to be her mate but he lives in Louisiana
and her life has been spent in Vegas working in and running
her adoptive parents casino. How is it possible to be one
of these shifters and how could she be a mate to this man.
Not that it would be a hardship because he is a gorgeous,
sexy slow talking man but the distance ... will her heart
or will it lose?
UNDER THE BAYOU MOON is in a word amazing. I wasn't sure if
gators were exactly sexy but Jacques changed my mind and as
for Angel ... well I could understand her reluctance in
changing her whole life even if her heart was telling
her "yes!" This is a very sexy and intriguing book with
the language and the feel of the bayou all the way through
it. I enjoyed all the secondary characters which included
her biological parents, his mother and brother and some
other members of his group; they added color and
entertainment value to this book. Anyone loving shifters
and finding Louisiana to their liking will love UNDER THE
I hope author Gynger Fyer (pronounced Ginger Fire) will
keep these books coming.
Jacques Bertrand is the sovereign leader of the biggest
gator congregation in Louisiana. As his thirtieth bayou moon
cycle approaches, heâ€™s in jeopardy of losing his shifting
ability because he hasnâ€™t found his mateâ€¦literally. You see,
gator shifters are mated from birth but his mate, Angelique,
was abducted at birth. If he canâ€™t find her by his thirtieth
bayou moon, heâ€™ll lose his ability to shift and by default,
his ability to rule his territory. By sheer luck, heâ€™s led
to Las Vegas where he finds his mate. But she doesnâ€™t know
about her abilities nor does she know she has a mate. Can
Jacques teach her how to be a shifter while making her fall
in love with him? He has less than six months to try.
Failure is not an option. His ruthless neighbor and
adversary, Philip Boucher, has been trying to take over his
territory for years. Thereâ€™s a lot riding on his ability to
persuade his mate, but one look at her and he knows heâ€™ll
move heaven and Earth to do it.
Angelique always knew she was different. The adopted
daughter of Vegas casino owners, she didnâ€™t exactly have the
usual upbringing. But when she shifts into a gator in a fit
of anger, can a handsome stranger, claiming to be her mate,
have the answers sheâ€™s been searching for about her real
parents, her mysterious shifting abilities, and her true
destiny? And can she give up her dreams to embrace the life
she would have had if she hadnâ€™t been abducted.
Itâ€™s love on the bayou, Cajun style, as this Creole beauty
does the one thing she swore sheâ€™d never do, fall in love
with her mate.
