Pride of the Lion

Hades’ Carnival, Book 3

I have to admit this book was so good I had to go back and buy the first two after I read it so I'm ready for the fourth installment. Hade's Carnival is entertaining and captivating. The characters are well defined and the story original and well written. The pace just right and the sensual love scenes perfect for this couple. I read it in one sitting and could not get enough of Araminta and Leander. I was sad to see their story end but thoroughly satisfied with their happy ending.

Araminta Davenport is a shy writer with big dreams…in fact she has been writing about those dreams and it appears that she’s been dreaming reality. Leander has been cursed for 5000 years and imprisoned in a carousel by Hade’s, the devil himself, with little hope of release. When Araminta accidently rescues him from his imprisonment it starts a chain of events they both must survive in order for the curse to broken permanently. They only have to survive the next 24 hours but it’s going to be the longest 24 hours they’ve ever attempted to live through.

Book Blurb for Pride of the Lion

When Araminta Davidson is invited to participate in a readers’ appreciation weekend, she feels like she’s arrived as an author. But what starts out as a fun weekend quickly turns surreal and deadly when she accidentally releases a shape-shifting immortal warrior from a five-thousand-year-old curse.

Finally freed from the carousal he’s been trapped on, Leander denies Hades and vows to beat the second part of the curse and find a way to free his comrades. The woman who released him calls to his animal nature, and he realizes she’s his mate. But is she as innocent as she seems, or was she sent by Hades? The clock is ticking, but not fast enough. If he can stay alive and evade Hades for twenty-four hours, he might be able to figure it out.

Each book in the Hades’ Carnival series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
