Publisher's Summary

From moonrise to moonset, the beast will rule.

Caleb’s family had a secret. One they’d held for over 300 years. One he’d reveal to save one woman’s life. Because she was the other half of his soul, even though it was her kind who condemned him to be the beast he was.

Lissette knew her family had secrets. What family in New Orleans as old as hers didn’t have family legends, most she disregarded as nonsense. Until she came across something leaving her no choice but to believe. Especially, when it meant her life...or his.

Because of the subject matter and content must be 18+

This was previously part of the Creole Nights Anthology but has been updated.

The Beast Within by LaVerne Thompson

The Beast Within by LaVerne Thompson
Paranormal wolf shifter romance novella.
Caleb’s family was cursed generations ago for the males to turn into a wolf during the full moon. Caleb has managed to control his wolf during the change but nothing can stop the change from occurring. Lissette and her family are aware of rumors of cursed men turning into wolves but she is careful and knows how to handle herself and a gun.
And doesn’t that just set up the story?

“He liked being able to tower over her.
Even his beast took an interest. It rode him to take her. It rarely ever did that.”

🎧 this book was narrated by Marcus Arona. He did a great job with two different distinct voices and emotions. For the first hour or so, I was displeased by the lack of proper language, and slang or unusual pronunciation of a particular word. I was eventually wrapped up in the danger, mystery, graphic steamy sex, and Caleb and Lissette’s attraction to each other. The narrator took me from close to hating to enthralled. I bumped the speed up from my usual 1.2 to 1.5 because of the mentioned initial issues.

Great read and great listen

I initially read this story as a part of an anthology. I loved it then and I loved listening to it on audible. Having the book come to life though the narrator reintroduced me to the story and introduced me to parts of story that I didn't see the first time though. Caleb and Lissett are something serious. I liked the narrator's tone. I did have to speed the play slightly though.
