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.

The Delight

Kodiak Point was a great blend of paranormal romance, light comedy, and suspense.  I was all on board for this associated series with more of the same just shifters of the southern variety.  Definitely ready for some fun on the bayou.


Croc’s Return opens with crocodile shifter, Caleb, returning to his home after many years away.  He has some groveling to do all around since he cut off contact with everyone and stayed away for reasons he couldn’t ever explain.  He’s barely holding it together and that’s before he learns he’s got a son and his teenage love and son are in grave danger.

This was no light and fluffy story, though yes, the bantering and wise cracks were pretty funny.  Caleb and his brother take swipes at each other and also Caleb and his old high school nemesis, Wes.  But the big blazing issue is with his first and only love, Remy.  Caleb and Renny have a chance to repair what was broken between them.  She’s hostile at first, but mostly afraid because she never got over him in spite of his apparent betrayal.

I enjoyed how the author balanced the action-suspense side of the story, the repairing relationships, and the sizzling passion.  The shifter world of Bitten Point is another small town setting with a few characters introduced though much of the story focuses on Caleb.

I’m looking forward to more from the series and getting that mystery solved that was introduced in this one.  And yep, more of Constantine’s killer chihuahua.  What a hoot that dog was.  I can easily recommend the series to paranormal romance fans.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.


  1. wow a croc shifter that is a new one, sounds good Sophia Rose. Nibbling on her thigh to a whole new level, really LOL 😉

  2. I had fun with Croc’s Return. You don’t see reptile shifter stories, so having a Croc was fun. I also enjoyed Constantine’s killer chihuahua. ^_^ I still need to pick up the others in the series. I saw they are amiable in the Audible Romance Package for audiobooks, so maybe I’ll give it go that way. Great review! This is a fun one to read.

    1. Oh, that hilarious dog. I can’t wait for Constantine’s story so I get more of Princess.

      Say, that’s a good idea about the audio option. I haven’t listened to any of them, but Melanie likes the narrator.

      1. Ya, Melanie likes the audios for this series sand other by Eve Langlais. Now that I’m trying out the new Audible Romance Package I grabbed book 2 in this series to try out. Haven’t yet, but planning too. I bought book 1 to read, but as things go, trying to keep book cost down and then I got side-tracked on other books. ^_^

  3. I’ll have to give this a look-see since I adore Langlais. It does seem like she balanced all the elements well. Her banter between characters is something I always enjoy! 🙂 Great review and I’m glad you had a good time with it.

  4. OMG Super Sophia! As soon as I saw this cover, I was thinking shapeshifting crocodiles/alligators, and looks like it was right on target. Uh…no girl! (lol) I like the action and suspense piece though, which would keep my interest for sure. Hope your day is going well! Hugs…RO

    1. Haha! Yes, its a bit crazy, but it really was a good one. I can’t wait to keep going with the series.

      A little under the weather today, but still having a pretty good day. Hope you’re having a good one, too, Radiant Ro!

    1. Oh man! I’m really behind on her books. I still have this series and the spin-off dragons series and… and… LOL I’m going to read the ones already on my pile, but not get any others until I finish these.
