Drake Wheeler works for a covert group investigating the paranormal. A powerful
empath, his talent is more than useful in his line of work. He has been sent to
a town called Chadwick to find a person only identified by the name ‘Sharza’.
Neither he nor his team have any idea if Sharza is a first name, last name, or
what. He doesn’t even know if this person is male or female.
When he encounters sexy bookstore owner Melissa Montrose, he knows something is
different about her, but isn’t quite sure what. Well, there is that one glaring
fact that he finds it impossible to read her mind, but other than that, he can’t
quite figure her out. He knows one thing, though – he wants to uncover every
little secret she has more than he has wanted anything in his life.
Having lost everyone in her family, Melissa is the last of her kind in the town
of Chadwick. And if there were another shape shifter in the small town, she
would definitely know about it. When hunky Drake wheels into town, she doesn’t
know what he is up to, but suspects it is something to do with her. It doesn’t
help a bit that he sends her libido into overdrive.
A grisly murder and subsequent attempts on Melissa’s life force Drake and
Melissa to work together to uncover the killer before one or both of them wind
up the next victim.
PRIMAL MALE is the sequel to Sasha White’s erotic romance
SEXY DEVIL, both of which have titles sure to grab the attention of
romance readers everywhere. Although it is the second book in a series,
PRIMAL MALE can easily be read as a standalone novel. I won’t try and
tell you that you won’t want to read SEXY DEVIL after
finishing this new book, though, since that would just be a lie. At least, it
is for me. *grin*
I’ve long been a fan of author Sasha White, but have only read her contemporary
romances previously. PRIMAL MALE is my first experience with her
paranormal stories, and I loved every minute of it. She infuses this story with
that sizzling sensuality she is so well-known for, ramping things up even higher
with the active libidos that paranormal beings have become known for in the
paranormal romance genre.
I fell for Drake from the beginning. He is a man who feels things very deeply,
but his empathic talent makes it difficult sometimes for him to recognize when
the emotions he is experiencing are solely his own or those of the people near
him. That’s what makes his relationship with Melissa so special for him.
Because he can’t read her emotions, he knows that everything he feels when he is
with her comes from inside himself, a first for him.
Melissa proves herself a woman worthy of this dynamic hero. Although she is
being hunted by a killer, she doesn’t hide behind this man, and never hesitates
to act in his defense when the situation calls for it.
PRIMAL MALE is the kind of book that plunges you in the story from
page one, never slowing the momentum until the final climax has been reached.
This is a must-read for lovers of erotic paranormal romance.
