Rescuing Markas is book one in the Sanctuary series by Megan Slayer. It tells the story of John Dallas, a man with money, but no real passion in life. He works at a local petting zoo where people can pay to pet lion cubs. John enjoys looking after the lions, but on seeing the intelligence in their eyes, often finds himself wondering if shifters are real, and whether his lions could be shifters.
When he finds out something shocking about the zoo, he figures he has only one option – he has to save the lions. But the act of heroism raises a whole bunch of other questions and issues. Can John overcome them in order to find the man of his dreams?
This is a great start to a series – I’ve added all the others to my to be read list. I very much enjoy Megan’s writing, and this book is no exception. It’s engaging, sexy and romantic, and I look forward to finding out what she has in store for the characters next. Definitely recommended to paranormal romance fans.
