A place to belong and strong arms to hold him—but will this shifter get what he needs?
After being rescued and taken to the Sanctuary, a refuge for lion shifters, Talisman knows he’s safe. But he’s restless. All the other shifters have paired up, except Talisman and one other shifter. The guy is fine, but he doesn’t make Talisman’s heart beat or his lion roar. Talisman refuses to give up looking for what he wants, but he never expected love to come running, stark naked, through a hole in the fence.
Davi doesn’t understand what’s happened to him. One minute, he’s a happy lion at the petting zoo. The next, he’s being hunted and humans want to use his head as a trophy. When his hope is almost gone, two lions appear to show him an escape route. At the Sanctuary, he realizes his power to shift and the desires of a human male. He doesn’t trust humans, but there’s one shifter he wants to know better.
Talisman and Davi must decide whether to give in to their animal urges or let the ghosts of the past tear their world apart for good. No matter what they choose, there’s one person who doesn’t want anyone, especially the shifters, to get their happy ending. As Talisman and Davi seek forever, it just might be ripped right out of their hands.

Davi withdrew his hand. The fear still gripped him, but if Talisman had wanted to harm him, he would’ve jumped through the bushes and attacked. He didn’t. The lion within Davi wanted to investigate Talisman. Who was he to argue with the cat?
“I’m scared,” Davi whispered. He rose to his knees then crawled out from behind the shrubbery. He sat under one of the skinnier trees and hugged his knees.
Talisman, still in his lion form, sat beside Davi. He licked his paw then rubbed his paw over the top of his head. After a few licks and swipes across his forehead, he snorted.
“Messy.” Davi stole glances at the big cat. Talisman looked so powerful and graceful. He wanted to be like his new friend, but he couldn’t. Carlton’s insults came back to him. Worthless, clumsy, too big, lumbering…no good as a lion.
Talisman butted Davi’s shoulder with his head. He made a sound that resembled a cross between a grunt and a soft roar. Just as quickly as he’d shifted into lion form, Talisman shifted back into his human form. But this time, he wasn’t wearing clothes.
Talisman retrieved his wadded up garments and held them in front of his cock and balls. He settled beside Davi again and stretched his legs. He leaned back, bracing himself on his arms. The pants and shirt lay over his groin, but didn’t hide the erection tenting them.
“Welcome to Sanctuary.”
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
When she’s not writing the stories in her head, Megan Slayer can be found luxuriating in her hot tub with her three vampire Cabana boys, Javier, Luke, and Jeremy.

When she’s not obsessing over her whip collection, she can be found picking up her kidlet from school. She enjoys writing in all genres, but writing about men in love suits her fancy best. The cabana boys are willing to serve, unless she needs them. She always needs them. So be nice to Javier or he will bite–on command.
