Title: Primal Design
ashion designer and bear shifter Kitty Chambers thought fifteen years was enough time to get over her first love, Monk Badeaux, but when she sees the sexy cougar again, her mating instincts return and it’s all she can do to keep her paws off him. Despite her wariness, Monk unearths a part of her sexuality she’d never known existed, using it ruthlessly to win her back. Monk is hazardous to her well-being and her heart, but Kitty isn’t sure she stands a chance against all this heat.
If you love something, set it free. Monk Badeaux did that and suffered the consequences. When Kitty comes home, he falls head over heels in love with the independent, no-panty-wearing woman his childhood sweetheart has become. And she hates him. Luck is on his side when he discovers his mate has a streak of exhibitionism he’s more than happy to exploit if it’ll bring them closer. Alleys, school gyms, cars…no location is sacred when a cougar is out to win his mate.

Second in the Cajun Heat series by Danica Avet, we are told more about Kitty, a bear shifter and fashion designer and her on again off again mate Monk. This series carries with it the same unique and fun feel that the early Sookie Stackhouse stories do: although there aren’t vampires, the human community is aware of and manages to coexist with the shifter community without many difficulties.
Shifter trails are well defined, and the hunters (for this is the bayou area and nearly everyone hunts) are careful about where and what they hunt. Kitty is sought out for her designs by locals and tourists, in fact that is the one thing that brings her pleasure with Monk not around.
Monk was cleverly drawn, without that overwhelming sense of ‘do what I want’ that sometimes comes with male shifters, in fact he is truly bothered by the hurt he caused Kitty, and he tries in multiple inventive ways to show her just how badly he feels. Together the two are fire personified, with a flair for exhibitionism and a penchant for sex in public places. Their hearts call to one another, and it truly is the personification of mated souls.
Delightfully Avet continues to inform us about other characters in the town, we see more of Daisy and Ram, and Daisy’s parents who never fail to entertain. Slowly the cast of characters is growing, with each new introduction bringing another element, another animal and another personality into this mix. A well written, super sexy story that manages to combine clever character building, a world that is familiar and yet unique and several unexpected laughs – this is a series not to miss.
