I don’t know quite where to put Shelly Laurenston’s “The Mane Attraction” on the shelf. Does it go under romantica? It’s not quite erotica, but more than romance. And it’s packed with humor that kept me giggling and snorting and had my husband looking at me strangely (OK, MORE strangely than usual.)
He’s a werelion. You know, gorgeous and mostly lazy, happy to go all night and have someone else take care of the details…alot like lions in the wild. He’s also a cop with a target on his back. The mobster he, and only he, can finger for murder is looking to get rid of the only witness. That would be Mitch. It’s enough to put a lion off his feed! But it could be worse…now he’s got Sissy Mae taking care of him and watching his back. If only he could stop staring at his ‘buddy’s butt.
Sissy Mae is a born troublemaker. She’s also got a streak of loyalty a mile wide, so when her ‘buddy’ Mitch is wounded in a murder attempt, she decides to take him home…to her home, and to hell with what anybody else thinks. She’ll take on weredogs, werewolves, werelionesses, and werebears to keep him safe even if she can’t seem to stop lusting for him. Oh well, as long as she’s in charge there won’t be any problems. Hey have you heard this one? A lion and a wolf…well, you’ll just have to read this one for the rest of it.
Humor, hot sex, mystery, and roller-derby auto racing…how can you pass this up?
