Aramond, kicked out of the Pride for challenging the alpha, searches for the female he loved and lost. After years on his own he runs across Danae, the one female that owns his heart.

A story in the complete Warriors of Lemuria shifter series. Don't miss this unique, sexy, second chance paranormal romance!
"Your wounds are much worse than I imagined." Danae pursed her lips, and Aramond had the sudden urge to kiss them, feel the plump flesh, warm and inviting against his own.
His gaze flicked to the mark at her throat. Faded, the twin scars were a sharp reminder of her past. "What happened to Dradon?"
She stiffened then grabbed several cotton balls and a plastic bottle filled with a white liquid. "He's dead."
"How did he die—" He inhaled.
Gently, she pressed the wet cotton against his back. The astringent stung, burning along the wounds.
"The medicine will work quickly. Along with your Lemurian blood, you'll be fine." Her fingers, deft and nimble, worked their magic, stroking the cotton over his skin in long strokes.
Despite the pain, her touch burned like fire, lighting him up on a whole different level. His inner cat purred, and he couldn't stop the rumble in his chest.
Danae stilled, her hand on the small of his back.
Before he could think about his actions, he flipped around in the chair, pulling her on top of him.
She squealed, and her hands landed on his chest.
The plastic bottle crashed against the floor, fluid spilling from the spout.
He brushed a few stray strands of hair away from her ear and toyed with the studs along her lobe. "Time away from you seems like an eternity, but I remember your touch like it was yesterday."

I totally enjoyed reading this story in the world of the Lemuria. Such engrossing characters and the storyline they inhabit. This world Ms. Redd has created simply pulls you in and makes you want to stay there! I would definitely recommend any story by Ms. Redd. Everything I've read so far has been awesome. This is worth every moment of your reading time!
New to me author. Another fantastic Zodiac Shifter story. This is Taurus. In this story, we have Danae who runs a place for warriors who need a safe place of rest while they are continuing their battle against the Gossum which are some ugly slimy creatures who are taking humans and turning them to strengthen their fight. Danae is a very strong willed panter shifter who has led life her way. She was attacked and mated once upon a time, and now that mate is dead. She doesn't want a mate, she doesn't want to be forced but enter one very sexy alpha male Aramond. She runs her life and is determined she doesn't want a male in it. Not so easy when she has them staying at her place. Some don't care about her rules such as Lamont. Aramond has always lived the solo life. He prefers to keep himself in battle against the Gossum. He won't join the pride as it's run by his daughter's mate. But he won't just stand on the sidelines. What is going to happen now with Danae in the picture? His heart was hardened once, but maybe he doesn't know the whole story? Can this couple heal the wounds caused by others so long ago? Can these two find a way to each other and over come their pasts? Fantastic story and I would recommend it if you love shifters stories with strong alpha males and even more powerful females.
She held her breath. 5 BAKED COOKIES Time seemed to slow. This encounter will change my life…one way or another. He was dangerous in an exciting, primal way. She was forever imprinted in his memory. Sugar and spice and everything nice. Indeed. What a FANGTASTIC story! I was blown away by just how PAWESOME every little aspect of it is!! It's a fairly quick read, but don't let that fool you! There is plenty of story, lots of action & romance and even a couple of fights too! With the vivid, lush descriptions, I truly felt like I could see, hear & feel everything just like the characters do! Rosalie has this way of telling her story that just brings it to life around you! And those panther shifters - pardon me, Panthera - are so magical, so powerful, so cool and COMPLETELY FURRIFIC!! Everything they can do, how they shift, their traits, the "Panthera Way" of how mates, newcomers and just how the Pride is run. I was instantly captivated with Danae, wanting to understand her & her fears, and it sure didn't take long before I was connected with her, totally living the story as her! Then along comes Aramond... *dreamy sigh* Oh he had me smitten from the start and I couldn't see how Danae was going to resist me! But she did...until she didn't! LOL I like to think I helped influence her to trust Aramond. wink With Rosalie's captivating storytelling, wholly unique Pantheras, multifaceted characters and her enriched, detailed descriptions, my attention was immediately grabbed & pounced upon, and wasn't released until I reached 'The End'!! In fact, I was so intrigued & fascinated with the story and Rosalie's phenomenal talent, genuine gift and mad writing skills, I am now more eager than ever before to read ALL of her books as soon as possible!! (I can't believe I have waited this long!! *kicks self*)
Once I started it was sure hard to put this book down. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book.
I was so excited to see Aramond had his book and it didn't disappoint. Aramond and Danae have such a sad beginning but they finally get their HEA! You see how both suffered and changed because of it and then how they helped each other and came together again. A fast paced read and it can be a standalone but reading the rest of the World of Lemuria stories is a great plus. Some characters from the series make a quick appearance. I highly recommend this book and series.
I enjoyed reading this book, has a good storyline. Can't wait to read more from this author on this series.
First I will be honest and admit that this book contains many of my personal favorites. It's a PNR ( of course), it makes references to Taurus and its traits, and.....panthers!!!! Needless to say, hooked like lightning! Without seeming too bias, these characters in this book just oozed romance, or in some scenarios appropriately the lack thereof. This storyline touches on the effects of a forced mating and how it can alter the life of many. So many elements in this tie together beautifully to create this PNR beauty. An easy five star rating from me, and I am delighted that I have added this book to my collection!
