Research scientist Dr. Anjali Mehta lost her beloved family in an earthquake. Only her work cuts through the paralyzing grief, but when she finds her new research subject, reputed mass murderer Jake Finn, maddeningly uncooperative and inexplicably sexy she's tempted to run away. How can she burn to touch a man behind bars—a killer?

What she doesn't know is that Jake is a chimera, a shapeshifter who can change into a lion or a dragon with all the strengths of both even in human form, who believes his ability to shape shift is nothing but a terrifying hallucination and his overpowering attraction to his new doctor proof positive he’s finally gone over the edge.

And the employer she trusts has an agenda all his own. If she can't believe the impossible, neither she nor Jake may make it out alive.

My review

In like a lion is a good read about a chimera pack searching for their mates.

All chimeras are different and Hale can change into a Lion and a Dragon, troubłe Is He doesn't know what he is and thinks his crazy!

Hale is currently being held, and he meets a new lady scientist there to study him. What they don't expect is to feel a connection to each other. They don't realize they're both pawns in someone else's game.

Hale is a hunk of a man, his about to learn a lot about himself quickly, will he accept the truth...... Can he trust this lady he feels connected to, even if he does can he keep her safe.

I loved the fact he could change into either creature, made it very interesting.

An enjoyable read mixing adventure, romance and twists and turns.

I look forward to next in series.

4 stars


I live in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio, and worship Jeni's Ice Cream, JK Rowling,
Jayne Ann Krentz, the TV show Supernatural, and the movies, Hunt For Red
October and The Princess Bride, though not necessarily in that order.
I am a fanatical reader of Romance, particularly Sci-Fi Romance, Fantasy
Romance, and Paranormal Romance. I always write the book I want to read, so I
tend to jump sub-genre a bit.

My husband and I are the parents of two kids (a
girl and a boy) and slaves to two dogs ( a basenji and a vizsla)
I was born in Rochester, NY, attended SUNY Oswego, and got my Master's in
Information and Library Science at the University of Buffalo. I was a School
Librarian in Webster, NY, for five years before starting my writing career. (I still
miss my students.)

I have a new series starting with IN LIKE A LION. The Chimera Chronicles follows
seven shape shifting brothers, separated in childhood, as they discover they are
not alone and find love.
