Blurb: A Premier lion shifter, Hugh Landry dedicates his life to leading the Berk pride with strength and confidence. Hundreds of people depend on Hugh for safety, success, and happiness. And at over a century old, with more power than can be contained in one body, Hugh relies on a Siphon lion shifter to carry his excess force.
When the Siphon endangers himself and therefore the pride, Hugh must pay attention to the man who has been his silent shadow for a decade. What he learns surprises him, but what he feels astounds him even more.
Two lions, each born to serve, rely on one another to survive. After years by each other’s side, they’ll finally realize the depth of their potential, the joy in their passion, and a connection their kind has never known.
Review: I really didn't know what to expect when I started this book. The author sent it to me and I didn't even read the blurb (that's how much I like and enjoy her writing). What a great surprise to read about lion shifters, I love shifter stories. Johnny started off slow but once it got going I loved it. CC never fails to give me enough character development and story that it makes the books whole to me. This book is not just about sex, which there is, and it's great, but it has so much love in it that you just can't stop reading it because you want to find out what's going to happen next with Hugh, Johnny and the rest of the Pride.
