When one picks up a book entitled "Stranded with a Cajun Werewolf", one is, almost by definition, dropping the bar a bit in terms of quality. But even by the "prizes for participation!" standard, this book is an incoherent mess. The hero: allegedly Cajun (this means he says "cher" very occasionally). The heroine: a boring blank slate who is primarily described as innocent and cherubic. men typically think of women they want to sleep with in terms of fat naked babies with wings? 'tis a mystery.

There's some plot. You could probably write it based on the title alone. There is a villain, who shows up for one page (on which it is revealed for the first time in the book, I think, that he is a vampire). There are some ridiculous My Cousin Vinny-esque mobster henchmen. There's also some manufactured conflict about how the heroine is a were-coyote, which is apparently trasy and low-class. You know, I saw a coyote at the bus stop last year (they're like rats, okay?) and it was indistinguishable from a smallish wolf or, you know, an underfed husky. Oh, and there's some bonus sex-negative commentary about slutty shifter chicks who are open about their sexual desires instead of having to be coaxed into doing the nasty like good little pure cherubic virgin ladies.

The upside, however, is that given how bad this is, the Cajun-werewolf niche is still wide open. Get on it, ladies!
