Author: Kristen Strassel
Publisher: Kristen Strassel
The lion falls for the doe in this exciting paranormal romance! His instinct is to kill her, but he let himself get too close… Mountain Lions toy with their prey before killing it. Woodland Park is ripe with choices during The Mate, the ancient ritual where weredeer find their partners. It’s no surprise when Leo’s prey shifts into a human, but he never expected the doe to be Daphne, the woman he’s had his eye on. He can’t bring himself to hurt her. Instead, he drives her wild with pleasure. But if he tells Daphne what he really is—her predator—he could lose her. Praise for Wanted by the Lion: I loved this story! It had levels, subliminal stuff, about love not coming with labels. Daphne and Leo. A doe and a lion, but she doesn't see what he really is. I loved the fullness of the characters and the steady plot movement kept me reading way past bedtime.--Louise This is a fantastic story. A lion falls in love with a doe. Just that much information is enough to get me to pick it up. Can you imagine the conflict of falling in love with the being you're meant to prey upon? And vice versa? As far as shifter stories go, this one hits at the top of the list for me. A breath of fresh air. And now, I wish I was a doe.--TA Don't you just love forbidden love? I know I do, and what can be better than a predator falling for it's prey? Kristen Strassel nailed the roles and behavior of the animals in this steamy shifter romance. I loved how the pack of jealous girls swarmed around Leo like a pride of female lions around their king. They toyed with Daphne like a bunch of cats playing with a mouse. And the line about the car... classic! I wanted so bad for Leo to be like, "Does before hoes...biatch!" But Leo is classier than that.--Ravenous Reader Fans of the following authors are known to enjoy this paranormal romance shifter series: ac cobble angela j ford anne marsh bella forrest brett battles charlaine harris christie golden christine Feehan Elizabeth hunter eve langlais hazel hunter heather graham i t lucas ilona andrews isa hunt j b turner j s scott j s striker jessica drake jessica shattuck jeannine frost kate quinn kf breene kristina weaver lana hartley lara adrian linsey hall lisa daniels lj shen louisa morgan mandy m. roth meg ripley michelle m. pillow mina carter milly taiden nalini singh nina levine nora roberts patricia briggs shannon mayer shayne silvers suzanne wright terry bolryder t.s. joyce victoria danann Yasmine Galenorn Keywords related to this paranormal romance series: Paranormal Books, Romance Sagas, Epic Urban Fantasy series, Werewolves and Shifters, New Adult Paranormal Romance, Weredoe, Fated Mate.

Also Included: Chapter One of The Parting, the first novel in the modern day O.C.L.T. series (the two tie-in to one another). LOST THINGS: In 1929 archeologists began draining Lake Nemi in search of the mysterious ships that have been glimpsed beneath its waters since the reign of Claudius. What they awakened had been drowned for two thousand years. For a very good reason. Veteran aviator Lewis Segura has been drifting since the Great War ended, fetched up at last at the small company run by fellow veterans and pilots Alma Gilchrist and Mitchell Sorley, assisted by their old friend Dr. Jerry Ballard, an archeologist who lost his career when he lost part of his leg. It’s a living, and if it’s not quite what any of them had dreamed of, it’s better than much that they’ve already survived. But Lewis has always dreamed true, and what he sees in his dreams will take them on a dangerous chase from Hollywood to New York to an airship over the Atlantic, and finally to the Groves of Diana Herself…. The world is full of lost treasures. Some of them are better off not found. STEEL BLUES: In this sequel to Lost Things, when the Gilchrist Aviation team tries to win the money to keep the business going by placing first in a coast-to-coast air race, things get complicated! A stolen necklace, a runaway Russian countess, and a century-old curse seem like trouble enough, but then there's New Orleans, and the unsolved murders of the New Orleans Axeman. But what if the murderer is one of them? SILVER BULLET: Mad Science and Magic A series of mysterious plane crashes in the Rocky Mountains in the midst of a Depression winter call Air Corps reservists Mitch Sorley and Lewis Segura out to fly search and rescue, but it's more than just a simple navigational hazard. Fortunately Mitch and Lewis are more than just pilots. With Lewis' wife Alma and their old friend Dr. Jerry Ballard they're members of an esoteric Lodge dedicated to the protection of the world. The Silver Bullet Mine is haunted -- or is it? Can ghosts bring down aircraft? And are the small-time crooks who are interested in the Mine simply looking to make a buck -- or the vanguard of something more evil and deadly? Aided by their former con artist office manager Stasi Rostov, they've got to get to the bottom of what's happening at the Silver Bullet Mine before more lives are lost.

Included are Heart of a Dragon, Vintage Soul, My Soul to Keep (The Origin story of Donovan DeChance) and Kali's Tale - book IV of the series. Also included are the bonus novellas "The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J. Diggs & The Currently Accepted Habits of Nature," and "The Preacher's Marsh," both of which provide background on settings and characters that appear in Kali's Tale. If you enjoy this book, you should read Nevermore, A Novel of Love, Loss & Edgar Allan Poe, which follows on Kali's Tale, has a cameo from Donovan DeChance, and leads into Book V - A Midnight Dreary, currently in progress. Heart of a Dragon: When a local houngan begins meddling with powers she may not be able to control, a turf war breaks out between the Dragons motorcycle club and the Los Escorpiones street gang—a war that threatens to open portals between worlds and destroy the city in the process. With his lover, Amethyst, his familiar, Cleo – an Egyptian Mau the size of a small bobcat –the dubious aid of a Mexican sorcerer named Martinez and the budding gifts of a young artist named Salvatore, DeChance begins a race against time, magic, and almost certain death. Vintage Soul: When, despite the finest in natural and supernatural security, a sexy and well-loved, three hundred year old lady vampire is kidnapped right out from under her lover's nose, Donovan is called in to investigate. There will be no ransom for the kidnap victim, and if Donovan doesn't prevent an ancient, forbidden ritual from reaching its culmination, far more than a single vampire's undead existence will be at stake. My Soul to Keep: Donovan DeChance is a very private man, and he is in love. When he invites his partner and lover, Amethyst, for a quiet dinner, she has no idea of his true intention. Donovan has planned a sharing - a vision that will give her the keys to his early life - the origins of his power - and a lot more than she bargained for. Join young Donovan as he fights to keep his soul, save a town, and learn the roots of his teacher and guardian - and meet his familiar, Cleo. Kali's Tale: When Donovan is asked to follow in secret as a hot-headed group of young vampires set out on a 'blood quest' to kill the ancient who created the young vampire Kali against her will, he learns that - as usual - there is a lot more to the story than meets the eye. Through the juke joints of Beale Street in Memphis, to the depths of The Great Dismal Swamp, Donovan and his lover and partner, Amethyst, find themselves drawn along on one of the strangest quests in their long, enigmatic lives as they delve into the world of the undead, the magic of The Blues, and the very heart of alchemy both to protect their young, vampiric charges - and to prevent an ancient evil from destroying the balance of power in the universe. This novel directly crosses over to the original series O.C.L.T. - where Donovan is a sometimes consultant. It features appearances by Geoffrey Bullfinch and Rebecca York, O.C.L.T. agents, as well as Old Mill, North Carolina's own Cletus J. Diggs.

Colonel Ridge Zirkander isn’t the model of military professionalism—he has a tendency to say exactly what’s on his mind, and his record has enough demerits to wallpaper the hull of an airship—but as the best fighter pilot in the Iskandian army, he’s used to a little leniency from his superiors. Until he punches the wrong diplomat in the nose and finds himself issued new orders: take command of a remote prison mine in the inhospitable Ice Blades Mountains. Ridge has never been in charge of anything larger than a flier squadron—what’s he supposed to do with a frozen fortress full of murderers and rapists? Not to mention the strange woman who shows up right before he arrives… Sardelle Terushan wakes from three hundred years in a mage stasis shelter, only to realize that she is the last of the Referatu, the sorcerers who once helped protect Iskandia from conquerors. Their subterranean mountain community was blown up in a treacherous sneak attack by soldiers who feared their power. Everyone Sardelle ever knew is dead, and the sentient soulblade she has been bonded to since her youth is buried in the core of the mountain. Further, what remains of her home has been infested by bloodthirsty miners commanded by the descendants of the very soldiers who destroyed her people. Sardelle needs help to reach her soulblade—her only link to her past and her last friend in the world. Her only hope is to pretend she’s one of the prisoners while trying to gain the commander’s trust. But lying isn’t her specialty, especially when the world has changed so much in the intervening centuries, and if Colonel Zirkander figures out who she truly is, he’ll be duty-bound to sentence her to the only acceptable punishment for sorcerers: death.
