Catherine Kovac is keeping her brother’s PI agency open by the skin of her teeth but it’s her legacy from him and she will do whatever is necessary to earn the money to pay the bills. That includes accepting her current job, to investigate a man suspected of murder – or at least that’s what her client has said. Catherine has used her best tools so she could be closer to her target, but things get unpredictable when she is invited to join him. Unable to resist, Catherine goes over and discovers an instant passion.
Gabriel Larousse is a self-made billionaire who moved to America with his brothers with just a few belongings. Now they have a hand in several businesses and are semi high profile. Gabriel and his brothers are known to keep their private lives just that – private, and for a very good reason as they have something that they need to keep secret. But Gabriel is unable to ignore the sexy woman who just walked in to a club she should have never gained entrance to. Once she comes closer, Gabriel knows just why he had to invite her over. It’s his mate.
Catherine can’t resist Gabriel’s passion or deny her own and even when she opens up on why she’s really there that passion only gets stronger. Gabriel knows that he was never on a safari but as the facts come to light, Gabriel and his brothers have a very good idea just who Catherine’s client is and why she wants his secrets. Catherine quickly learns that it is her client who has lied and she is furious about it. Danger has Catherine in its grasp and Gabriel is the only one who can save her, with a little help from his brothers and other unexpected areas. Now all Gabriel’s big secrets are known to Catherine, will she still have the lightening fast love for him or are their differences just too big to overcome?
One sexy would be PI meets the strong and fierce man of her dreams, who cares if he gets a little furry at times? Catherine discovers that Gabriel is everything she has ever wanted in Night of the Lions. I loved Gabriel and his brothers and how they went their own way instead of trying to deal with the pack structures. I also loved how Catherine was so feisty even when over her head and yet so determined to keep the agency open. The fast and brilliant fireworks that sprang up between Catherine and Gabriel proved not to be the only hot thing they would face before it was over. When Gabriel went after Catherine, I wasn’t at all surprised that he put their future on the line to save her. I knew that in this case love would win over the darkness trying to pull them apart. Even with the suspense that was evident from the first few pages, I found the light heartedness made Night of the Lions a very unusual wereshifter story and one I instantly feel in love with. I can’t wait to see what will happen to Gabriel’s brothers.
