About Into The Lyon's Den:
Wealthy recluse Anthony Lyons offers a mint to lure Marie Maxwell, Atlanta’s most sought-after event planner, to coordinate a wedding and reception for a “very special couple” on his isolated estate in the mountains of North Carolina.
Despite her sophisticated veneer, Marie’s a tough street-smart orphan without a past. Adopted by the owners of the elegant Hotel Maxwell, she’s been raised in the business. Known for her uncanny ability to “make things go right,” Marie accepts the challenge of planning a wedding for 200 guests in 10 days.
Marie soon discovers that an absent bride and groom is the least of her problems. Her arrogant and exasperating employer displays far too much interest in her and her personal life, especially her lost years. Confronted with a vengeful stalker, two thwarted murder attempts, and dark shadows from her shrouded past, she finds allies in an amorous feline of some unknown species and the mysterious Lady Bat. But who’s got it in for her? And what’s with Anthony and all the cats?
Why I'm Waiting on Into The Lyon's Den:
I'm looking forward to this book for a couple of reasons. I'm a huge fan of shapeshifter books, the cover just yells "Buy Me" and I've never tried this author before. Something about the blurb draws me in too....maybe the idea of Marie's lost years - oh and the fact we share a first name (though her's is the French version and mine is the Spanish).
