Title: Primal Flavor
Being a human in a parish filled with shifters, Colette Robicheaux has learned to be tough as nails. A hunter with the kind of lethal skills that make most men nervous, all it takes is a single hot look from Zachary Trahan to make her melt into a puddle of goo. And this tiger shifter doesn’t fight fair, using his hot body and his many skills in the kitchen to melt her panties. But there’s a danger in the swamps that threatens to tear them apart, an evil that could turn this hunter into prey.
When chef Zachary Trahan took a break from work to hunt, the last thing he expected to find was his mate. A human huntress with a hot temper, a quick trigger finger and the kind of body destined to keep him up at night, Colette makes his tiger purr. He’ll have to fight his stubborn mate, her impossible family and the threat hiding in the swamps before he can finally claim her for his own.

This is my favorite of the three stories in the Cajun Heat series so far, and I’m hoping there will be many more to come. A band of shifters is hunting human women, and Colette can hear the women’s screams each month, like clockwork. No stranger to shifters, Colette Robicheaux is a human, born and bred Cajun tough with the violet eyes peculiar to her family, although not able to “grow fur” like her cousins. Her family is protective and rather insular: tresspassers on their land run the risk of getting beaten or shot before being escorted off. Thought of as “strange” by the townspeople, few have ventured to befriend them.
Zach is a baker with an incredibly successful bakery, and he just happens to be a tiger shifter. His attraction to Colette, despite her being human, is puzzling to both his cat and himself. Perhaps it is her lack of fear, or the strength and spunky attitude, but his cat just wants to rub himself all over her: “He just wanted her in every position physically possible and some of those that weren’t if he could find a good pulley system”. That line alone made me adore Zach, especially as he is waging an interior war with his tiger half’s desires and intentions.
With the danger to all humans omnipresent, life is even more treacherous for Colette in the swamps, and nearly a month has passed since she last heard the screams. Zach’s ever present watchfulness and dogged determination to keep her for himself just may be the only thing that can save her, or endanger her further.
This story is again, fast paced and full of adventure, sex, laughs and shifters. The electric current between Colette and Zach is even more dramatic than those connections seen in the earlier books: the sex is steamier for the waiting and the tension provided by the mystery deaths just makes everything more immediate. Zach is such a raunchy boy – in such a good way, his penetrating stare and the internal battle with his tiger half are both super sexy and seriously funny. And who doesn’t love a man that makes them laugh. Adding to that sexiness is the multiple positions and the obvious delight that Colette and Zach have with one another: his possessiveness and willingness to make her purr is just delightful.
I love this series: it made me laugh; it kept me turning pages even as I squirmed when I read. The perfect getaway read that entertains on so many levels.
