The Lion Kings by Renee George

“They are not blood, but experience has made them brothers. They are not gentle, but suffering has made them kind. They are not possessions, but love has made them mine.” — The Lion Kings

☕☕☕☕☕ Review

I read this book in serial format, one book at a time, and loved every single second.  The first book hooked me with it’s intriguing story line.  Come on, who doesn’t love a lion shifter…. and we get two!  Awesome hunks of lioness aside, the unique personalities of the three main characters blend and complement each other well.  Their chemistry sizzles, and the story flows smoothly.  I gave each of these books, together and separately – 5 coffee cups (better than stars).  A first for me with a serial.

Synopsis

For six months, Madeline Granger has been overwhelmed by an almost magnetic pull that has kept her on the road, traveling all over the Midwest and erotically dreaming of two men… her lion kings. When she wakes up in Kansas, just outside the perimeter of a traveling carnival, it miraculously feels like coming home. But after she meets the two men who shouldn’t exist outside her own mind, it’s hard for her to reconcile that her dream lovers are two very real and sexy men, not imaginary. All she knows for certain is she wants them both.

Adam Michael’s and his brother Cage, both lion-shifters, not only run Pantheros & Co Carnival, they are the stars. Making a home for his crew of misfits and outcasts was Adam’s dream. Cage was his most desperate rescue, and after a profound loss, Adam worries that Cage’s grief will drive him toward a brutality he can’t come back from.

The last thing either lion-shifter expected was Madeline Granger. She might be the answer to Adam’s prayers, in more ways than one, if he can get Cage to look past his pain. But, can Adam and Cage see Madeline as more than a substitute Clary? And can Madeline rescue two Kings drowning in their own sorrow?

Maddie might want The Lion Kings to rule her body, but is she strong enough to rule their hearts.

An impossible mission…

JAG Special Forces agents Huntley Anderson and Melissa Overton are hot on the trail of poachers when they’re suddenly saddled with two jaguar shifter cubs. They have to locate the parents, pronto—but who’s going to babysit in the meantime?

A lifetime of possibilities…

Huntley is a rough, tough jaguar shifter and an all-business agent, but he’s not going to let two abandoned youngsters come to any harm on his watch. Seeing her super-manly partner try to get the playful cubs under control stirs up some unexpected desires in Melissa, and she begins to feel like Huntley’s not the only one who’s in over his head…

Hers to Bear ~ Tamara Hoffa

I can’t wait to read this one. Bear shifters, Yum! ❤

Hers to BearHers to Bear
by Tamara Hoffa

Twenty-five and never been kissed, Jenna Raynes is a beautiful woman with a rubenesque figure often overlooked by men. In the mood for a little honey, the sassy new schoolteacher is stopped in her tracks by one growled word from an alpha bear…“Mine.”
Bern Helms’ inner bear catches the scent of his destined mate. His animal’s desire is drawn to her curves, but Jenna is human, and not lured to him by instinct. Convincing her begins as a sizzling, sweet affair that is soon spoiled by danger. In their small backwater town, nerves are strung taut. Someone is abducting shifter children.

When confronted, Jenna is as protective of her students as a mamma bear. For Bern, all bets are off when the kidnapper’s take Jenna too. Nothing will keep a bear from his mate. The hunters will become the hunted…

First Author Spotlight – Feb 3rd

Congratulations Lucian Bane. 🏆

AS BaneLucian

Bio:
My name is Lucian Bane, and I’m a Dom. I like to refer to myself as an ineffable Dom, and while many attribute the term ineffable to God, let me assure you the godly attribution of awe and astonishment does not apply to me, lol. I merely assume the part of the meaning unexplainable, in the sense my dominance will not be defined by tropes and customary categories. To a lot of people, I’m a complicated Dom, an intricate Dom, or confounding Dom. To my wife, I am a godly Dom.

And I think that would be the truest definition, since it is to God that I submit my dominance in obedience to His will.

I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can give myself to completely, come undone with, become one with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with, into that abyss of unspeakable and ineffable holy shit, that can only be found within the confines of passionate, and committed love.

I think there are many men just like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. (A map for women as well, to recognize and identify these Doms.) I want to challenge men as well to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, and not be a coward or hypocrite and withhold those things they demand or expect from a woman. For consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a woman, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you. You are both in each other and belong to each other. You are one.

As young men, our inner Doms need a master to train them. I once bowed to my inner Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gave myself to God and conformed my will to His, that inner Dom bowed to His will. The transformation made me into what I am today.

Answers to some of the questions I’m commonly asked:

Yes, there is a real-life Tara and she is my wife. (Thank you God )

While the Dom Wars game is obviously fictional, many other elements of the story are true.

Yes, I really am a man, and I really am a Dom. No, I don’t take on new subs. My only sub is my beautiful wife whom I love more than my own life.

Yes, I am writing after I finish the Dom Wars series. I’m currently working on a paranormal series as you can see and the way it’s going and the amount of ideas I have, it’s doubtful I’ll ever stop writing fiction.

My desire for privacy seems to fascinate some people, and I haven’t quite figured out why. Contrary to what we like to believe about our society, not everyone is free to do or say whatever they want. Words and actions can negatively impact family and friends. I have a responsibility to protect the people in my life from the consequences of my choices, so I will not post images or real names. I would feel terrible if my sister’s husband lost his job, or my mother was ostracized in church, or anything unpleasant happened to anyone I know simply because I write Erotica. People have enough difficulty without being presumed guilty by their associations with me.
