Panther’s Claim (Bitten Point #2) By: Eve Langlais
Cynthia: So I met a man. Mom: Is he single? Hitting on the wrong woman finds Daryl regaining consciousness in a motel taped to a chair. Things were looking up–and not just below the belt. A sexy, cocoa-complexioned veterinarian–with killer curves–wants answers, and he’s only too happy to give them to her, for a price, say a kiss, or something more, from those luscious lips. The problem is Cynthia isn’t the type to fall for flirty words and panty-dropping smiles. She tempts Daryl into helping her. Teases him into acting. Claims his heart without even trying. But that was okay because…She’s mine…and someone was trying to hurt her. Hell no. This kitty isn’t afraid to unleash his claws and rescue the woman he wants. An intriguing, hot woman, a mystery, and danger? Sounds like fun, and Daryl is ready to play. He’ll do anything to claim Cynthia as his mate.
Kind of let down by this book. I liked the romance, but I wish the rest of the story had been developed more. Cyn comes to Bitten Point to find her friend Aria but sorta doesn’t care by the end since she’s found her man. It mentions off hand that she got a call from her that sounded odd but Aria said she was fine. That was it. This was after they found a body and already had one mysterious call from her friend.
I liked the romance, the characters, but wish that there was more story development.
Croc’s Return (Bitten Point #1) By: Eve Langlais
Coming home doesn’t always solve things … but it does pave the way for second chances. Take one deadly bite and, bam, a man’s life is changed forever, or so Caleb discovers when a loss of control leads to him joining the military and leaving everything behind. Time goes by … years spent silent and alone, cut off from those he loves. Until it’s time to come back, a scarred veteran, in many ways broken and looking for a meaning to his life. Perhaps it’s not too late to right some wrongs. Make amends. Kiss a certain pair of sweet lips one more time. If only Renny would damned well let him. It doesn’t take Caleb long to realize Renny’s just the thing this croc needs to bring him back to life. Yet, what if he loses control again? He doesn’t want to take nibbling on her thighs to a whole new level. Too bad, he can’t stay away, especially not when he discovers her secret. Add in a strange creature stalking the townsfolk and there is no way he’s leaving her alone. Years ago it just about killed him to leave, but Caleb’s a changed man now. A darker kind of animal, and this retired soldier is ready to kill so he can stay. Welcome to Bitten Point, where the swamp doesn’t just keep its secrets, it sometimes eats them.
I was a little emotionally raw when I read this, leftover from Sweep in Peace, and I ended up crying more than this book probably warranted.
Caleb is a returning soldier that dealt with the evil from the Kodiak Point books. He’s scared in more ways than one and ready to put his life back together. Of course things are never that easy.
Lots of reveals and a new evil to fight, I’m excited to see what comes next.
