Humans and shifters live in harmony; there is no skulking about and hiding. Loved that aspect. Daisy is a bear shifter who is a second generation police officer and is a no nonsense kind of gal. When the rock band Saber shows up in her neck of the woods to put on a concert and tape a video she's in the front row, as security. Imagine her surprise when her stoic self is suddenly overcome by Ram, lead singer of the band. She denies it, runs from it, hides from it, but can't escape it. Or him. I loved the chase aspect and Daisy's general distrust of cats led Ram on a merry chase. Known for having harem's, Daisy is opposed to a relationship with a lion, which is what Ram is. He has to prove himself, his intentions and pay a few dues from a past life as a rock star to win over Daisy.
Ram is your average rock star but he's feeling his age and wanting more. Like a family. When he is thrown into heat with Daisy his initial shock and denial becomes shock and awe. After a little inner dialogue he's on board and loaded for ...... bear. Sorry, couldn't resist! The sex was edgy and hot, the shifter aspect just a given, not a plot device. What drove the story is the relationships and feelings of Ram and Daisy and how they can reconcile the lives they've lived with the life they are meant to have together. A good start to a new series.
Book one in the Cajun Heat series.
Deputy Daisy Picou is not impressed when Ram Reinhardt prowls into town all rock star swagger and big cat ego. She’s been burned by a lion before and has no intention of playing the fool twice. But with one scorching glance the mating frenzy ignites and passion trumps reason. An intense first encounter levels Daisy’s reservations—and most of her living room. And she’s not so sure she minds.
Ram Reinhardt has burned through and brushed aside just about every adrenaline-inducing thrill life’s thrown at him. But Daisy sets the gold standard for a premium rush. Her combative personality should turn him off, but every time they fight they end up in bed, or on the floor, or against a wall—and the sex is always more combustible than the time before. He’s not about to give that up. Ever. (Book Length: Novel)
