The goal seems simple enough: rescuing her brother. Finding anyone capable o aiding her in his enormous duchy like pelazzo in the Alps is so formidable that everyone tells Isabella Vernaducci to go home. She has heard tales about the Don that strike fear in the hearts of the bravest souls, yet aristocratic Isabella obstinately continues her quest to find the enigmatic, more myth than man, Nicolai DeMarco.

When Isabella locates Nicolai (or perhaps it is more the other way around), she does not see the Don who allegedly controls the beasts to do his dirty work. Instead she sees a man haunted by a curse that the intrepid Isabella is determined to free Nicolai from it. When Nicolai offers to save her sibling on the condition she marry him, Isabella readily agrees as she knows she needs no stipulation to wed the Don. Still as she risks her life to save her tortured beloved, she wonders if she will ever gain his love even if she eliminates the beast that holds his soul.

More than just Christine Feehan fans will enjoy this delightful paranormal romance as the rarely used early nineteenth century Alps setting (almost Gothic in nature), the intrepid heroine, and the tortured male protagonist come together in exciting fashion. Though readers will admire and question Isabella┬┐s bravery at the same time, the audience will relish her efforts to emancipate the two men she cherishes from their respective ┬┐incarcerations┬┐. LAIR OF THE LION is a wonderful novel that readers will appreciate if they set aside the time to luxuriate in a one sitting read.

Okay when i first started reading Feehan's novels i thought wow but around the third novel i started to think wait a minute all the leading men appear to be very similar. I'm not saying that Feehan doesn't have an imagination maybe its just very limited. All the leading ladies are the same they all seem to clash and appear to have the same qualities and traits but look slightly different. I read scarletti curse and then read this book and realised its exactly the same. A change of the characters appearance and scenery but its all very similar i'm beginning to find it difficult to identify the difference between many of the authors books. I hope Feehan creates fresh forthcoming books.

    Not up to her other books

    This book does not compare to her more recent efforts. The dialogue is poor, overly dramatic without being authentic, and the storyline was week.
