New Orleans homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is dedicated to bringing down the crime boss responsible for her father’s murder. Using Jimmy Legere’s mysterious and irresistible right-hand man is a dangerous gamble, and not only due to his reputation as more monster than man. Because her feelings for Max Savoie are . . . complicated.
THEN HE RISKS HIS LIFE TO SAVE HERS.
Rescued from the swamps as a child, Max exists silently in Legere’s shadow, heeding only his voice—until Charlotte Caissie awakens his emotions and tests his loyalties. Stepping outside his cautious rules threatens more than just his heart. He could expose his darkest secret.
NOW THEY’RE BOTH IN OVER THEIR HEADS.
Testing boundaries they weren’t meant to cross means facing the truth about who and what they are—and what they need from each other. If Max is the murderer she seeks, Charlotte could be his next victim. She can’t afford to trust any man. Good thing Max isn’t one.

YUM! This is definitely a new urban fantasy series to watch. I really bought into the whole “there is a werewolf in New Orleans” vibe of the book. I would have like the heroine, Charlotte, to have been a bit more feminine, but I guess the back story of her life and it’s heartache would account for how she reacts and uses people to get what she wants. She namely starts out using Max, who is plainly in love with her and has his own terrible upbringing. There is real chemistry between them and it really heats up. It will be interesting to see where this story goes. This is one hot read.
