He Ain't Lion

Ridgeville, #1

This humorous novella will keep you laughing when you are not panting from the steamy sex scenes. You have one extra possessive alpha lion Prime who is clueless on how to control a feisty independent human female.

Alex O'Connell looked at the monitor in disbelief. How the devil did she get in? They had to get her out of Genesis immediately. The Semi-Annual Gaian Moon Gathering was due to start in five minutes and the beautiful blond was neither Pride nor a familiar of the Pride. Turning to Grayson he told him to get the woman and bring her to him now! When she arrived Alex took a breath and knew he was lost. The woman fate had selected as his mate, Maya Johnson, was within his grasp. He wanted to send her away until after the gathering when he could court her properly, but his lion would not let him. He wanted the woman, he clawed Alex to mate and claim her so they could keep her forever. Since Alex wanted that as well he gave in and gave Maya a mating mark and changed her future.

Maya had come to Genesis for a night of raw passion and nothing else. She was still stinging from the break-up with her ex-boyfriend's cutting rejection. She expected a one-night-stand. What she got was the Prime of the Lion Pride as a mate and her life changed forever. Alex was riding a sensual high when he fell asleep holding his mate. He'd planned to explain who he was and what had happened during their marathon night of passion, but when he awoke his mate was gone with no knowledge that she was about to go through her first shift soon. Maya was starving and it was making her cranky. Suddenly everyone was looking like a great source to feed her. Can Alex get to her quick enough to keep Maya from snacking on her best friend Carly, a rabbit shifter, who is trying to help her? Will she accept their mating and Alex?

This book has fast-moving dialogue and a story of loyalty, family closeness and tells of a way of life that is known to all but more secretive than most know. You will fall in love with the Ridgeville series and be waiting with bated breath for each new story from Celia Kyle. Luckily there are seven others already available for me to enjoy before I panic. So off to read "Your Lion", book 1.5 in the series. More fun to be had with Alex and Maya as they learn the Gaian Moon Gathering does help.
