Redonk Nutshell: Stranded woman finds herself intrigued by two charming yet conflicted men

After a series of disappointing erotic reads I needed something that was going to settle in Juuuuust Right.  And I knew I could rely on Cara McKenna to deliver.

Natalie is stranded in the middle bayou-nowhere after fleeing from a disastrous breakup.  She seeks shelter in a bar, The Shivaree, where she’s immediately drawn to one of the musicians playing on stage.  Magnetism doesn’t begin to describe it.  Gabriel feels it as well, and when he decides he wants her, he knows his lover, Shane, is going to likely pitch a fit.  Shane does, at first, but Natalie wins him over.  What we get is an explosive connection between three people that surprises the reader as much as it surprises the characters.

Shivaree is a novella that delivers with some serious sensuality, as well as emotional intrigue.  Cara McKenna has become a stand-by author for me for when I need something with some spice AND substance.  If you’re looking for a quick read that will leave you flushed, Shivaree is a good place to start.
