Tempting the Beast Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Tempting the Beast

Callan Lyons is the beginning of a new breed - a human with the partial DNA of a lion. Bred in a cage and experimented on until he managed to escape the scientists who held him captive, Callan learned the hard way not to trust anyone - except the members of his pride. Now Callan is hiding in a small town in the middle of nowhere with his brothers and sisters - those who are also mixed human/cat DNA. Aside from the horrible members of the Council who sanctioned the experiment and the scientists who executed it, no one knows that Callan and his pride exists, until Callan's mother is murdered.

His mother told a reporter her story. The reporter passed the story onto his daughter, Merinus Tyler, who was obsessed with bringing Callan's story public and the Council to justice. After a year of intensive research and background checks, Merinus was ready to tackle the lion in his den. There was no way that Merinus, who was still a virgin thanks to her overprotective 7 older brothers, could have anticipated the intense sexual attraction that would instantly flame up between her and Callan.

Merinus and Callan both tried to ignore the sexual heat between them, but Merinus refused to leave without her story and the erotic connection only seemed to be growing stronger until it was a physical ache and pain that Merinus could not ignore. Desperate to ease the agony, Callan and Merinus could no longer deny themselves. The sex between them was explosive and provided instant relief, but the sexual tension just built back up again. After testing both Callan and Merinus, the pride's doctor discovered that they were in heat and that there was no known cure. Now Callan must make a difficult choice - give up Merinus, his genetic match and true mate and deny the his lion heritage, or trust her enough to go public with his story and try to find protection for himself and his pride in plain sight.
