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.
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.
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.

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.
absolutely. Some of my favorite books are written by Feehan.
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.
It was just "okay"
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.
probably try another by Abby Craden
this is just another Beauty and the Beast story, cursed people in the castle, lord turns into Lion, etc. really bad.
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.
NO defiantly not, she tries to hard. Everything... is... said.... with... breathless... anticipation.

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.
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
Not this genre, definitely the author.
Someone/anyone who could do a decent male character voice.
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?
Not every thought a character has should be followed with three long sentences comparing them to the wind, nature, etc. Sometimes/most times
