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.

    "The best Auther around she never let's you down"
    Would you listen to Lair of the Lion again? Why?

    I love all her book's and re listen to them a lot as you always find something you missed or forgot


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say Gregori the Dark one he is powerful and much loved by his prince yet loved and feared by his people


    Have you listened to any of Abby Craden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes a very good story teller


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would have to say the whole story line is just to good to pick one particularly


    Any additional comments?

    The Auther the story teller are the best

    Story
    "predictable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was ok, but not as exciting as many of her other works. Seemed to drag on and on at times. I knew pretty much what was going to happen the entire time.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christine Feehan? Why or why not?

    absolutely. Some of my favorite books are written by Feehan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    none stand out, really. I guess the climax when they find out that there was more than one "beast". The way the women were portrayed... I think the thing I liked most was the older female was loved by her husband, even though she was a bit insecure about them.


    Was Lair of the Lion worth the listening time?

    It was just "okay"


    Any additional comments?

    not my favorite, but still pleasurable enough.

    3,495 hours listened in 2012! I used to be a voracious reader, then my job had me driving about 1k miles a week. I started listening to Audible and have never stopped. I quit work and now just listen all the time, cleaning house, shopping, driving, in the hot tub. I even put one earbud in and let Audible read me to sleep every night.

    Story
    "The reader was so bad that I could not keep track"
    What did you like best about Lair of the Lion? What did you like least?

    I can't say what I liked best or least about this book. The reader was so bad that I could not keep track of what was going on. The sex was good, but the reader read everything like a moment of tension witch made it hard to understand and keep up with the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Abby Craden’s performances?

    NO defiantly not, she tries to hard. Everything... is... said.... with... breathless... anticipation.

    Story
    "slow, unbeleivable story line"

    i'm not one for sci-fi type of books and i'm not sure if this one fits into that category, i'm not sure what category it would fit into but for me it was a book that i kept thinking what really is the plot here? the point is? i'm not sure what this story is supposed to be about. the reason for the 2 star rating instead of one star is some of the sex scenes were pretty hot if you like having sex with some one who may turn in to a lion and devour you at any moment! i recommend you don't waste your money or your credit.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    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
