Leap of the Lion (The Wild Hunt Legacy Book 4)

She shifts for the first time on the day of her escape.


After a decade of captivity, Darcy MacCormac escapes the corrupt, clandestine organization called the Scythe, leaving family and friends behind. She must find a way to rescue them. Discovered by other shifters, the brand-new cougar gets two mentors. Blademage Gawain is an easy-going blacksmith with a steel-hard core. His brother Owen is a deadly warrior. Grumpy. Rude. And he doesn’t like her.

They aren’t the mates she’d dreamed of—they’re more.

Powerful, dominating Owen protects the clan—especially the weak—and the only remnant of an abused childhood is his avoidance of females. Now he has to mentor one? Although Gawain soon falls for the dauntless little cat, Owen knows better than to lose his head. But Darcy has a gift for repairing everything…including damaged hearts.

Love isn’t in her destiny.

In the brothers’ arms, Darcy finds safety. Comfort. And love. But however much she longs for a future with Owen and Gawain, her people need her. Somehow, she must find the courage and skills to save them, even if the attempt demands her life.

So I'll just say I was unsure about this story which is why I kept putting off reading it. I've loved this series and when one as that the problems for this couple were going to be more dramatic and intense I was unsure how it would go. Because sometimes when problems escalate like they did in this book the core of the story - the love, romance & living - can get lost in the scramble and the story really just becomes about the new and dangerous problem. But thankfully this author was able to avoid that problem and she did it well. She gave us all the suspense, and drama and intense build up of this new and dangerous problem everyone's facing while still making the stories main couple and their development a priority. So the love and romance where intertwined with this problem instead of one being overshadowed by the other. Darcy was strong but she also had plenty of internal issues to deal with but she never backed away from them or ignored them or any problem which I really liked. I loved gawain and would love to see more blademages in the future because he was just yummy. And Owen grumpy and controlling but under all that you could see his caring for everyone else. It's hard to pick a favorite couple in this series because they are all so good, but this one might take the cake for now. This was a story where each part of this couple finally achieved their dreams, and the HEA was good. I'm the future I'd love to see Part in and Fell get a book, and maybe have a book where one of these new-ish females gets knocked up at a gathering in the middle of her story would be fun. So love, action suspense, plenty of hot moments and wan overall well balanced story so there's not much more you could ask for. Good story and I can't wait to see what's next, would recommend.

If you are into paranormal series, you are missing out if you haven’t treated yourself to Cherise Sinclair’s The Wild Hunt Legacy series. Centered around a small town filled with shifters, these books are full of action, emotions, some tough situations, and loads of chemistry. Each can be easily read as a standalone but I’d start from the beginning with Hour of the Lion just because you don’t want to miss any of the strong heroines and their hot, growly heroes. Cherise Sinclair has a knack for writing books that are not only seriously sexy but jam-packed with characters that have to navigate emotionally and physically difficult situations. Needless to say, I’ve been impatiently waiting for Leap of the Lion, had hugely high hopes for it and wasn’t disappointed in the least.

All three main characters have serious issues they are dealing with. Owen and Gawain are brothers raised in an abusive home with Owen taking the brunt of the abuse from their crazy mother. If that wasn’t heartbreaking enough, we are brought along for the ride as Darcy escapes from an evil group called the Scythe, who had imprisoned an entire town’s worth of shifters for years. The females are being held as hostages in order to force the males to carry out missions for the group. The females are dying off at an alarming rate and if Darcy can’t get help soon, all will be lost, especially for her brothers.

I loved Darcy. She was strong and unbelievably brave, willing to do anything to save her people even if it meant putting herself back into the very danger she escaped from. She was hardworking and loyal, and extremely smart, learning how to not only be a Daonain but also all the rules that went along with it. It’s good she was assigned two sexy, growly, and knowledgeable mentors to help her along.

As much as I loved Darcy (and Gawain too) it was Owen who completely stole my heart. He was growly, grumpy and, because of his issues with his mother, a borderline misogynist. A Cahir, or god chosen warrior for his people, he was perfectly suited for keeping his people safe from harm but his attitude needed some serious work.

Gawain was a blade mage, which made him physically tough, but it was his laid-back attitude that made him an imminently more suitable choice of mentor for Darcy, although the task of was given to them both. I think Gawain was the voice of reason, a calming influence for both Owen and Darcy.

The more Owen and Gawain got to know their new charge, the more they wanted her no matter how hard Owen fought it. As for Darcy, she developed feelings for her mentors, but she knew as soon as she had control of her newfound cougar, she needed to go help her people.

These three had lots of lessons to learn, from trust, to control, to how to forgive oneself. Leap of the Lion was an action-packed emotional journey, and although a slow burn at first, it was hot as Hades too. I can’t wait to see what happens next for the characters in The Wild Hunt Legacy.

It’s the middle of the night and I had to keep reading until I was finished. Sinclair is ruining my sleep!
As this is the last book in this series I’m sad to be finished, I’ve loved following the shifters in the little town. The tolerance, love and acceptance they show for each other is heartwarming.
There’s so many characters I would love to learn more about so I hope there will be more books.

I’ve said it before and I say it again; Sinclair has a unique way of creating a world of her own in her series, and it pulls you in so you’re a part of it.
With characters that are developed in to realistic personalities I feel like I know them.

No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Lots of good dialogues
Suspense that holds my interest all the way through
Sweet and steamy love scenes.

If you like shifter romance I promise you’ll like this series

Darcy is a panther shifter but has been held captive for ten years. Her and her female villagers were held while the brothers were made soldiers and if they didn’t do as they were told, the sister was killed. They were not allowed to touch, talk, or shift. When she overheard a conversation, she escapes and gets lost in a park.
Owen is a Cahir, a warrior ,and doesn’t trust females because of his mother. Gawain is a blademage, makes magical blades for the shifters, and is Owen’s brother. Owen helps rescue Darcy and brings her back to their town. The cosantir assigns them to be mentors to Darcy. Teach her the shifter ways and how to shift, hunt, and the laws of their people.
She wants to rescue her village people but they have to find the prison first. They want to plan an attack against the prison and the soldier camp at the same time. But when the cosantir’s mate is taken, their attack must happen now and Darcy must lead the way.
I’ll be honest, it was a little confusing at first to me but the more I read, the more I loved it. Action packed, fast paced story. There are multiple men having sex with one women and then it becomes a ménage. The sex is very hot. Darcy is lovable and strong. Owen is quiet and grumpy. Garwain is big and sweet.

Gerri Wilder does it again! Of course, she’s going to need a new assistant, again!

Sky Adler isn’t looking for a man. She’s happy being Gerri Wilder’s newest assistant and excited she’s on a mission to scope out a new client. She did not expect the town residents to treat her like she committed a crime and for the client to be hot enough to melt the ozone. She definitely needs a cold shower, but she’s a professional, she can handle it. Maybe. Hopefully. 

Damien Grimes isn’t looking for a mate and has worked damn hard for the evil image he puts out. But when he meets Sky, that all changes. The very image of a playboy jerk is now what’s keeping his mate from wanting to give him a chance. He needs a small miracle, urgently, if he ever wants to get her out of her clothes and into his bed. And he really really wants that.

It’s hard for Sky to not judge Damien based on her research, but she’s trying. Things are bumpy, but headed in the right direction when trouble comes calling and Sky needs saving. She has to allow Damien to be her hero and stop denying the love she knows she feels for him, or risk going home with her heart broken.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Yes! Another fabulous couple from Ms. Taiden. Gerri is at the top of her game when she matched these two people. Truly enjoyable! While I tend to prefer book series, these standalone books are so interesting. It seems like Gerri no sooner gets a new assistant then she finds a mate for that lady. And yes, so far, all of Gerri’s assistants have been curvy ladies.

Midnight Star: Paranormal Dating Agency (Aurora Champions Book 4)

Astra Garrick, the Midnight Star, is the Nova Aurora Arena League’s reigning solo champion. As the late Ebon Claw’s younger sister, she has quite the reputation to uphold—especially when a title-hungry opponent attacks her using the same drug that killed her brother.

The close call has put her on a quest to uncover the source of the toxin responsible for crippling or killing dozens of Nova Aurora’s champions. She just never imagined the enigmatic matchmaker, Gerri Wilder, would send her childhood crush along with her, not to mention a former champion with a tainted past.

Now the three of them are on a collision course with Earth, where lies the devastating truth they’ve long been seeking—and a love that might compromise them all.

As she let her gaze travel between the three of them, her dragon uncoiled within her, rumbling its own answer to Javin’s question. Listen to me. We are not whole yet. They will make us whole, as we will do for them. Something inside her seemed to shake loose with her dragon’s statement. A heavy weight disappeared from her conscience and she took a deep breath, mentally nodding to her dragon.

“Yes,” she said, directing the statement to all of them. “I may be crazy to say this, but I’m tired of holding back. I love you. All of you. And I want you more than I can say. Just promise me you won’t let me forget what matters, okay?”

“As long as you don’t forget that you matter to us,” Javin said. “We’ve got you.” .

Tall, Dark, and Panther (Paranormal Dating Agency #5)

A BBW in search of love + a sexy panther shifter = Alpha Romance

“No. She’s only dancing with me.”

The anger that rose at a man telling her she’d only dance with him fizzed to a sudden death when she turned to face the person who’d spoken.

She turned to see her neighbor: God of every dirty dream in the world. Her throat turned drier than sandpaper while she stared at him. She didn’t even know his name, but her body knew his better than he could imagine. Too many erotic dreams did that to a girl. She’d started to think of him as her fantasy man. Though she’d only seen him sporadically in the building, in her dreams he was more than just some man. He did things to her no man could ever match.

He wore a tux like nobody’s business. He was taller than any man she’d ever dated, and she had to lift her head to look into his eyes. His jaw was clenched tight, and his short blonde hair had been freshly cut into spikes.

“Noah, darling. You’re going to scare Maya,” Gerri growled. “Stop acting like a Neanderthal.”

“Um…” She knew his name now. Noah. It fit him. He didn’t glance away from her. Instead, he leaned closer, lowering his head toward hers.

“You’re here for me.”
