Lion shifter Dell O'Roarke has never been serious about life, but life is about to get serious with him. The beautiful stranger who's just arrived in Maui isn't just looking for anyone -- she's looking for him. And that's not just any surprise she's brought along -- it's a baby who looks a hell of a lot like Dell. Soon, he discovers there's more at stake than his lifestyle as a swinging bachelor. Vengeful shifters are hot on the stranger's heels, making Dell wonder... Are they after the woman, the baby, or him?

Ad executive Anjali Jain hasn't taken a vacation in years -- and she sure isn't on vacation now. She's simply keeping a promise, and then she'll get back to climbing the corporate ladder. But there's nothing simple about taking care of a baby -- or handing that baby off to a handsome, mysterious stranger who feels like a long-lost friend. Easygoing Dell isn't her type, but the more he reluctantly reveals of his hidden, soulful side, the deeper she falls in love -- and the more mysteries she discovers. How can one man possibly awaken so many lusts and desires at the same time? What evil forces lurk behind the brutal murder of her best friend? And why does she have the feeling there's something not quite human about the murderers -- or about Dell?

Rebel Lion is a fast-paced, emotion-packed paranormal romance filled with sizzling passions, hot alpha goodness, and irresistible characters. Ready to be swept off to sunny Maui's suspense-filled shifter side? Get your copy today!

Maui just got hotter with this exciting new series of steamy, suspenseful paranormal romance!


A man with survivors guilt, a women invested in her work, and one little cub to bring them together.

We learn so much about Dell and we get to see a different side of him. Everyone sees him as a child as the one to mess up. They don’t see or think that he can grow up and take care of a child. They don’t see him.

Anjali works in a demanding field and is on the go working late hours. She has no time for a child and so she comes to Maui to find the kids Uncle, but the more time she spends in Maui the more time she realizes that maybe she needs to slow down and that leaving this little one is not going to be as easy as she thought.

I really enjoyed the surprise that everyone gets when Anjali shows up with a baby. They all think the kid is Dells, but they are in for a shock of their lives.

I have to say I loved how this story played out. Dell struggles with guilt, survivors guilt from the war, and that he is know’n as the screw up in the family. I loved that Anjali saw the man behind what he portrays to the world to hid how he feels. She saw him and what he could be. She was perfect for our rebel lion.

The author made me very sad and made at Dell’s brothers. Why?? They didn’t support him and they didn’t think he could take care of a kid. They guilted him and pretty much agreed without him that they should find a family to take the child in, foster family. I was prod of Dell when push came to shove that he stood up and became the father this little one needed and showed his family that he can be a man, a dad, and a mate. I loved how this little cub and Anjali helped him to heal in more ways then one.

It was also a great surprise to see Moria, the villain she dragon, make an appearance.

Rebel Lion a sweet romance, full of healing, love, and the power of Destiny.

Rated: 4 Stars
