Taming the Lion (Lone Pine Pride #2)
When she’s in heat, there’s no cooling down…Lone Pine Pride, Book 2. Wilderness guide and cougar-shifter Patricia “Patch” Fontaine has known the dangers of lone-shifter life since she was ten, when her parents mysteriously vanished. All grown up now, she thrives on her hard-won independence.When rumors of a new rash of shifter abductions crop up, she’s forced to come home to the Lone Pine Pride for protection — right as the man she’s always secretly wanted is about to marry her best friend. And right as she’s going into heat.
Roman Jaeger values his role as Alpha heir apparent, but he isn’t thrilled about his arranged marriage to the Alpha’s daughter — especially when his bride is just as nonplussed as he is — but he’ll do his duty for the pride. Seeing Patch again challenges his noblest intentions. The wildness in her sets him on fire, and he can’t resist the chance for one last fling.
Both know a future together is impossible. But when chemistry and sowing wild oats grows into a need deeper than lust, their bond could threaten the very heart of the pride they both love.
Warning: This book contains a strong sexy Alpha-to-be, an independent cougar-shifter who knows her way around a lion’s heart, secret affairs, arranged marriages, politics, passion, and a pride full of lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!!!!
|“Let me be the judge of that.” This time he found his way beneath the poncho without a hitch, his hands smoothing along her stomach beneath her shirt and deftly unfastening her jeans to sneak inside and— “You don’t get to be the judge of everything,” she gasped as he touched her, her body already slick and ready. “You don’t get to rule over the world and make it all bend to fit your will.” “Of course I do,” he purred against the skin beneath her ear. “That’s what it is to be Alpha.”
Gotta love a Lion Shifter!
If I had to pick just one genre to read it would be paranormal and shifters. Lions, tigers, wolves, jaguars, wild dogs, bears etc etc I love them all!
Roman, the sexy beast is Alpha heir apparent and the Pride is everything to him so he’s prepared to sacrifice himself to an arranged marriage with the Alpha’s daughter for the future stability of the Pride.
Despite having always secretly lusted after Roman he is to marry her best friend so Patch just lusts from afar with no intention of anything ever happening between them. Then she comes into her heat ………………………….
Their chemistry is off the charts combustible however even though encouraged by others to sow some wild oats and just have a fling Patch is determined Hoes over Bros!!
She encourages Roman to woo Lila and get to know his bride while her own need and lust for him deepens with every contact they have.
So what will happen? Will Roman have a last fling before marriage? Will Patch succumb to secret desire with her heat riding her hard? Will their undeniable attraction and chemistry flare out of control?
I’m not telling! But I will say that while a bit of a predictable story, it romps along with humour, has all the hot and sexy you expect from a Vivi Andrews and as a quick enjoyable read it delivers.
