Chase has been driven by unexplainable impulses to abandon his entire life, family and a promising career and go live in the Louisiana bayou very close to nature.  At this point, Chase figures he is slowly going insane and hiding in a bayou is as good a place as any to do it in.  However, his plan is not exactly working out – his sister has found him, the local sheriff has a little too much interest in his activities and Chase keeps having strange thoughts about the wolf that has “adopted” him…

Casper is determined to guide Chase through his first “transformation” into a wolf, but Chase is not making the task easier.  The entire situation is complicated by the attraction they feel for one another and Chase’s instinctual repulsion to sexual thoughts about an animal.  However, Casper will find a way to guide Chase through this – even against Chase’s wishes…

Bayou Shifters: Chase is an interesting story that takes the usual shifter story and presents a grittier side.  Chase is an interesting character as he constantly questions his sanity and battles his body’s instinctual need to shift.  Casper is harder to understand as we mostly get to experience him in wolf form.  For the most part the relationship between the men is sexual with a little bit of need thrown in, but the emotional connection occurs in a time frame that is skipped over in the narrative so it’s mostly inferred.  All in all, Bayou Shifters: Chase is a gritty and interesting tale about werewolves and unconventional sexual attractions that lead to more.
