The Panther's Lair

Sydney Chase walks into The Panther’s Lair with one thing on her mind—find an appealing man to have a one-night stand with. Not so simple a plan when the sexy owner of the club sets his eyes on Sydney and this one night changes everything between them. Their erotic journey leads to a discovery for club owner Raimond Decoudreau. He has found his mate and now he has to find a way to keep her tied to him while wooing her into a romance unlike anything she is ever experienced. The mind blowing sex is great for Sydney but she is still jaded where men are concerned and with good reason. When a dangerous man threatens Sydney, will Raimond be able to control his beast and protect his mate without her running from him in fear?

The Panther’s Lair is an excellent short story full of eroticism and strong sexy characters. This story is sure to delight the reader with decadence all the while building a fast-paced plot that leaves you ready for a cool dip in some water to control the sizzle left in its wake. Not many short stories can give you great characters with enough emotional commitment to pull off a well-rounded story. Esmerelda Bishop has penned an excellent novella that I would recommend to anyone who would like a quick entertaining read. Enjoy!!
