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.

Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing

Because this book was on sale ($4.95) and because I typically like Christine Feehan, I purchased this book without reading reviews. MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I understand it was supposed to be a take on "Beauty and the Beast", but come on, let's have a little more originality than just adding lions.

There are certain things I really like about Feehan's books, and there are a few things that tend to bug me. This book seemed to focus on the thing that bugs me the most - the back and forth between 'love him/love him not' in every single event. It gets really old and loses its effectiveness.

The narration was overall okay, but she read it too slowly and had too long of pauses. That seemed to drag the already boring book out even more.

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.
