What a great story with such a strong couple. Both know what they want, or what they thought they wanted, but when they meet realize that what they want isn't what they need. I enjoyed watching the 2 grow from singular characters who think they only need the life they have to a couple that realize that's it's okay to love to want something different then they thought. The story is about them but the other Shadow Hunters are there and very important to parts of the story. If you haven't read the other stories you can still enjoy this book but I recommend reading the others as they're awesome also.
After reading and loving book 1 i couldn't wait to have more of the series as it has romance, action and the bayou setting so when i discovered that this one has werewolves too couldn't resist any longer. i don't regret it even if Tallulah was my least favourite character...i mean she suffered a lot i get it but it made her so bitter and so cold that it was hard to warm to her even if she got better.
Now, discovering who her mate is we understand a bit more i think^^.
Tallulah is still hurt from the past events but she doesn't stop trying to do her hunter job as best as she can if no better. During one of her nightly hunts ,she encounters a wolf with unnatural behaviour but manage to make it leave. Since wolves are not native from the area it makes her suspicious. However no matter the nightly events, during the day she is still the stubborn woman she is and discovering that a crew is cutting wood on the tribe land puts her in combative mode so she doesn't hesitate to confront the workers among whom Payton reacts to her.
Payton is loyal; perhaps even too much he had a difficult upbringing and because of that he feels in debt to his pack..his job doesn't make him happy but it's good for the pack so he does it. All is about the pack until he comes across Tallulah who fast become Lulu for him. He is intrigued, wants to discover more about her - is ordered to by his alpha ( and worse)- but there is more. He doesn't want to do it for his pack but wants to protect her even more after finding her hurt. So suddenly he is stuck between two universe not sure what his place should be. I loved how honest he was with her ( i did want to shake him a few time as well so it was good that " Lulu" didn't keep her tong in check.)
The story was well written even without reading book 2 nothing seeming off, we got the info needed so this works well as standalone ( even if i recommend to read the others). the investigation was well done with the touch of romance and action well balanced.
I was really happy with this book, read in one sitting. the pace was constant, i saw Annie like i wanted so i definitively recommend this if you want a romance with paranormal elements set in the bayou.

I was surprised by this book. I haven't read the other books in the series, but that wasn't an issue. There is a wolf shapechanger, but in my mind he really isn't the main character: that would be Tallulah Silver. A Choctaw shadow hunter working with her brother and others to keep their part of the bayou safe. She is the first one to see the rouge wolf, the first to confront the loggers including Payton Rodgers the hero, the first to find the dead body.
After being confronted by a wolf twice in two days in an area where there shouldn't be any wolves, Tallulah decides to follow it to see if there is a pack somewhere that she needs to worry about. Instead, she sees the wolf enter a farm house through a doggie door. No screams come from the house. While trying to decide what to do, Tallulah hears the front door open so she hides by one of the trucks in front of the house. It would have to be Payton coming outside! Drawn to each other in spite of his logging job and the lies they must tell each other, Payton cannot tell Tallulah he is a wolf and she cannot tell him she is a shadow hunter, the two are drawn together. Slowly they begin to share a bed and then secrets as Payton joins Tallulah and the others on a shadow hunt and Payton unexpectedly turns into a wolf in front of Tallulah. The characters and story line are well developed. It was fascinating to read the descriptions of the woods at night from those who could see in the dark versus those who couldn't. The details of the Choctaw beliefs were also well done. Very well done!
