The Lionman Kidnapping by Eve Langlais
Poor Marcus. Those illegal experimental injections have made him more than a man. Roar! As he hides outside the remote building in the mountains, he waits to have his revenge. Then he smells something delicious which turns out to be Jayda, the evil doctor’s daughter. Jayda has her own ideas of what Marcus can do for her and it’s not in the regulations book either.
Paranormal romance, Chimera Secrets series book 3. Humorous, sexy and a fast read.
On the simplistic side, or animalistic maybe, we get a description of the helicopter that’s filled with guards intended to capture Marcus. “Giant metal bird in the sky, it’s belly full of meat sacks”. The meat sacks phase is used often and cracks me up every time!
I listened to the audio version by Troy Duran. He did a good job with the lion man roars. His female voice was a bit prissy but that’s pretty much what the dialog was so it fit. I enjoyed his diction and delivery.
Marcus never asked to become a beast. The doctors at the Chimaeram clinic he escaped from were terrible people. The only way for him to stay human was by the touch of the beautiful, smart and captivating woman he kidnapped as a revenge against one of the doctors who'd tortured him.
He found himself drawn back to that horrible place. He kidnapped Jayda, who was Dr Cerberus's daughter. He wanted the lead doctor to pay for what he'd done to him. He never thought about what having her close to him meant.
They were both attracted to each other, and as their relationship developed from friends to lovers. They discovered that they were more alike than Marcus thought. When the clinic was attacked, Jayda and her father were both taken and her lionman did everything in his power to save her.
Adrian had to face the fact that people have noticed him and what he was doing at his clinic. After the attack, he destroyed his lab and moved to another location. It was great to get a mention of some old characters and meeting new ones. Marcus and Jayda got their HEA.
THE LIONMAN KINDNAPPING is the third book in Eve Langlais' CHIMERA SECRETS series. It was humorous, action-packed and a must read. Eve Langlais keeps surprising me with each book. Looking forward to what she has in store for us next.
This is Marcus and Jayda story. Marcus is now a monster on the edge of being feral. He wants revenge and he thinks the way to get it is to kidnap the doctors daughter. Jayda is no helpless damsel. When her daddy calls asking for help for one of the escaped projects she agrees to help. What she doesn't agree to is the way she reacts to him. Marcus captured again just wants to die and he would if one certain female would quite yapping in his ear. Can Marcus find his way back to the living? Can Jayda find a place in her heart for one as broken as Marcus? man this book keep me on the edge of my seat. I love this series.
What do you get when you cross a nerdy geek with feline DNA? A victim of a car accident Marcus is sold to Chimera and experienced on. He became a new man. Literally. Depression has overtaken him and he believes himself to be a monster. Experimented on by her father, Jayda is in her own class. Beautiful and deadly she does as she pleases driving her father crazy. Yet she is the one called to corral the beast living by the Clinic. The story unfolds showing Marcus that he only needs to learn control. Then an attack ensues. This book continues where the last one left off in the continuing work and research at the clinic. One required by both scientists for different reasons. I couldn't put it down!

As always, this author's characters included a very sassy and off the wall female and a strong willful male. Marcus has been living in the woods surrounding the clinic after his escape. When he kidnaps Jayda, who happens to be the daughter of Dr.Chimera's associate, she distracts him long enough to sedate him so he can be returned to the clinic. He will either hate her or thank her for her underhanded betrayal. I really enjoy reading this author's books. I always know they will be fabulous and keep me riveted to the end.

The third book in the Chimera Secrets series was epic! There was so much action and wonderfully bloody scenes, steamy character interactions, cameos/mentions of previous characters, and some seriously unexpected twists! All in all, Lionman Kidnapping was exactly what I have come to expect from this author; AWESOME.
Before Dr Chimera got his hands on Marcus, he was a weedy nerdy geek, who’s been in an accident. How, he was a lionman, literally, and Jayda, daughter of Dr Cerberus, has been called back to the complex to get him back and train him to control his animalistic tendencies. As the story expands, we find out more about Jayda, her dad and Dr Chimera. Part hunt, part romance, part mad scientist, all fun.
