Publisher's Summary

The Beast....
Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding... and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human - as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes.
The Beauty....
Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She’d even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion - the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco.
The Bargain....
Then Isabella met a man whose growl was velvet, purring heat, whose eyes held dark, all-consuming desire. And when the don commanded her to become his bride, she went willingly into his muscled arms, praying she’d save his tortured soul... not sacrifice her life.

Strong hero, no way a wimp is more like it.

What disappointed you about Lair of the Lion?

The "Lion" is a complete wimp, every scene he is either hiding or wimpering. Chritine Feehan had created an amazing read in the Lepard series, I was expecting that kind of male lead.

What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?

The discriptions are lengthy but vague, pages and pages of discription all lead up to no clear storyline. Just didn't care about the characters.

What didn’t you like about Abby Craden’s performance?

All her males seem like wimps. Everyone seemed confused.

Any additional comments?

Really disapointed, Feehan writes a good story, but this is not nearly her best. Maybe it would help if I had read it myself, It wouldn't have been so drawn out. If this was the first book had read of hers, I would never pick up another.

What disappointed you about Lair of the Lion?

The over descriptive narrative of the characters emotions. Each encounter broke off into a mundane, often repeated description. The tale just didn't go anywhere for me, simply because of the overly

Has Lair of the Lion turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not this genre, definitely the author.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Abby Craden?

Someone/anyone who could do a decent male character voice.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lair of the Lion?

The scene where the two main characters share tea in the dining hall together...made no sense and went off on another turmoil filled description of the internal struggles of the main characters that went on and on.

Maybe I got lost/frustrated with all the descriptive narrative, but did I miss a physical description of the lead female character?

Any additional comments?

Not every thought a character has should be followed with three long sentences comparing them to the wind, nature, etc. Sometimes/most times
