Lion's Honor

Ridgeville, #5

This shifter romance is a riveting read that capture’s the heart. Werelioness Honor Mauer returns home with her tail tucked between her legs and just when she’s feeling less psychotic the lion that sent her scurrying home shows up. Werelion Greyson finally gets his mate back as soon as she opens up her heart to healing. He’s got plans for her and when the male that hurt Honor shows up in Ridgeville, well… it Christmas in July.

This steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot captures the heart with pride, loyalty, strength, courage and romance. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that inspire vivid images that bewitch the imagination. The well orchestrated action and drama scenes draw the reader deeper into the story.

The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning. The reader can’t help but falling in love with the characters of this series.

The connection between Honor and Greyson is definitely strong enough to handle anything, which is a good thing since it takes a lot of patience and understanding for this couple to reach their HEA. Honor bombards the reader’s emotions with the horror of her past, but also with her ability to overcome and begin to accept Greyson into her life. This is needed to begin the healing process. Tensions build throughout the story as the London pride is investigated. The danger the prime’s son poses to Honor increases.

The author mixes drama and romance with touches of humorous snarky dialogue in a seamless entertaining story. Readers get fascinating characters with some that are unusual. You have lots of fun personalities. This is the first book that I have read in the Ridgeville series and I am now definitely hooked on the characters.

Book Blurb for Lion's Honor

Sometimes the Queen of the Jungle needs to lean on her King. Okay, she’s really not the queen and he’s totally not the king, but damn it, they need each other.

Four years ago, werelioness Honor Mauer walked away from Ridgeville and hopped on a plane bound for London. She had college dreams and none of them included her pesky maybe-mate Grayson. (Even if he is the hottest thing to ever walk on two legs—and four.)

All is fantastically furry in London until she goes through her first heat. Then her world collapses, her bright, obnoxious eyes dim, and she runs home with her tail tucked between her legs. Too bad the London werelion who sent her scurrying home decides to show up just as she’s feeling a little less psychotic. Bastard.

Werelion Grayson got his curvy, luscious mate back on U.S. soil and he refuses to let her go. He knows there’s a lot of emotional work to do, but he didn’t become Ridgeville’s Second by turning belly up at the first sign of trouble. She’s his. The quicker she realizes that—and opens her heart to healing—the better. He’s got a plan for a life filled with love, laughter, and cubs and it sorta requires her cooperation.

Just when he thinks her recovery is around the corner, the male who’d hurt Honor shows up in Ridgeville. Which is a good thing, really, since it gives Grayson a chance to kill him. It’s like Christmas in July.

Warning: Once again the bad guys are bad (and bloody, ew) and the good guys are good… And somewhere along the way the good guy and the battered gal find love. (Awww…)
