Vance thought his pride meant everything to him…until fate sent Joey into his lair and into his heart.
Vance grew up the odd one out in a macho and very insular pride of lion shifters. Differences like enjoying the cool fall weather are bad enough-his pridemates would kill him if they learned he was gay. Still, his pride is all he knows. He’d never even met a shifter of another type…until he discovers an unconscious cougar male in his lair.
Joey is on the run and wants to keep Vance at arm’s length, especially since someone very close to the lion is the root of all his troubles. But there is something irresistible about Vance, something which has Joey wanting more than he ever dared to dream.
When their lives are threatened, Joey must choose whether to sacrifice himself, or try to live and keep Vance close…for the very short remainder of his life.
Good read, quick and light.
It was a very short story, so the plot and mate bond was really fast, that being said it is a good read for someone who is looking for something that won’t take a long time to get through.
This is the start of a series and was a good start.
I have to say I really liked Vance, he is the odd lion of the pride, yet he loves his pride and does all he can to improve life inside of the pride for all involved. He has been keeping his secrets from his uncle the alpha, but he still loves and respects him. When it comes to a point where he might have to choose between the pride and his happiness it is very difficult for him. What choice he will make, only time will tell.
