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.
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.
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.

Strong hero, no way a wimp is more like it.
What disappointed you about Lair of the Lion?
The "Lion" is a complete wimp, every scene he is either hiding or wimpering. Chritine Feehan had created an amazing read in the Lepard series, I was expecting that kind of male lead.
What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?
The discriptions are lengthy but vague, pages and pages of discription all lead up to no clear storyline. Just didn't care about the characters.
What didn’t you like about Abby Craden’s performance?
All her males seem like wimps. Everyone seemed confused.
Any additional comments?
Really disapointed, Feehan writes a good story, but this is not nearly her best. Maybe it would help if I had read it myself, It wouldn't have been so drawn out. If this was the first book had read of hers, I would never pick up another.

Great Book, Ridiculous Narration
What did you like best about Lair of the Lion? What did you like least?
I LOVED the story. I've read this book several times on my own. I DISLIKED the narration.
What did you like best about this story?
The story itself was fabulous.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I just cannot get into the story because whenever the female narrator tries to sound like a large, alpha male, it totally took me out of the story. It sounded so silly that I couldnt get into the scenes. The story would read, "His low voice spoke in a sensual whisper..." Well, it wasn't low and it sounded ridiculous NOT sensual. It lost me and I couldn't finish listening. I finished it by reading it on my own.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Only if the part of Nikolai isn't played by a woman trying to be a man.
