Description

The Beast . . . Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding . . . and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human—as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes. The Beauty . . . Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She’d even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion—the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco. The Bargain . . . Then Isabella met a man whose growl was velvet, purring heat, whose eyes held dark, all-consuming desire. And when the don commanded her to become his bride, she went willingly into his muscled arms, praying she’d save his tortured soul . . . not sacrifice her life.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 19, 2002 – Best known for her vampire romances (Dark Guardian, etc.), Feehan adds a gothic twist to a classic fairy tale in this eerie and engrossing 19th-century romance. In a desperate attempt to save her brother, Lucca, from the evil clutches of the grasping lord who has imprisoned him, Isabella Vernaducci, a courageous but impoverished noblewoman, ventures into the Alps to search for the elusive and dangerous Don Nicolai DeMarco, believing him the only man powerful enough to save Lucca. To her surprise, Nicolai offers her a deal: he will aid her if she consents to be his bride. Isabella agrees before learning of the DeMarco curse which condemns the DeMarco men to be seen as "the beast" and prophesies that Nicolai will "rip the heart" from the one he loves. Suspense simmers in the DeMarco keep, where chilling cries are heard long into the night and Nicolai's "pet" lions roam. Though the relationship between Nicolai and Isabella is overwrought at times he frequently tries to save her from himself by attempting to send her away they're a perfectly matched pair in terms of temperament, and their steamy sex scenes heat up the pages. With its guileless heroine, masterful hero and mystical overtones, Feehan's inspired retelling is likely to garner her the attention she deserves. (On sale Sept. 3)

Customer Reviews

Lair of the Lion

Wow! This book is an excellent read. Feehan has managed to create an atmosphere of true romance. I strongly recommend this book if you want hot steamy love scenes mixed with true love.

Too bad, so sad

The story is great but a fourth of the book is just porno. Too much, too often. Funny thing, the best male writers sell many books and have no sex in them at all. It is too bad this author does not realize her story and the way she writes would stand on its own. People do buy books and enjoy reading them when there is not on going sex scenes that take up whole chapters - sometimes almost two chapters or more at a time. I'd give 5 stars for the story but being nice to only subtract 3 for the inconvenience of spending so much time skipping that which I don't want to read. It is beyond a love making scene!

Ok

With the phrase 'take her or his breath away' repeated so often, it is a wonder the characters didn't just up and die of lack of oxygen. Sloppy thrown together book with same old tired feehan formula making it predictable.
