  • Also used by J.R.Ward in her vampire novels. For example in "Lover Unbound", p 36. "This is your destiny: to become the Primale of the Chosen." It seems to be a combination of "primary" + "male", at least in the way it is used by Ward and the other examples given here on this site. In other words it means a "superior male", mainly, but not only, in terms of sexual attractiveness and prowess. It seems less to have less to do with "primal" in the sense of "primitive" or "primeval", though there is something of the hunky primitiveness in the sexual ideas implied.
