Summary

"Put Victoria with two Alpha brothers, and wow, oh wow, your socks will be knocked off." 

First a Marine, then a black ops agent, Victoria Morgan knows the military is where she belongs...until a sniper's bullet changes her life. Trying to prove she's not washed up, she rescues a young man from kidnappers. When the dying boy transforms into a cougar - and bites her - she learns of an entire hidden society. He begs her to inform his grandfather of his death and to keep the secret of the shifters' existence. She can't refuse, but what if the creatures pose a danger to the country she swore to protect?  

As guardian of the shifter territory, Calum McGregor wields the power of life and death over his people. When a pretty human female arrives in their wilderness town, he and his littermate become increasingly concerned. Not only is the little female hiding something, but she is far more appealing than any human should be.  

While investigating the shifters, Victoria begins to fall in love with the werecat brothers and the town as well. For the first time in her life, she might have a real home. Her hopes are crushed when a deadly enemy follows her from the city, and the shifters discover she knows their secret. Now nobody is safe - least of all Victoria.

Critic reviews

"HOUR OF THE LION was simply amazing. Hot hunky shifter men, a strong and sassy heroine, a gripping story, and some oh so lovely ménage action are just the tip of the iceberg in this phenomenal read! A Top Pick and 5 Stars." (The Romance Reviews)

Hour of the Lion

I found this book to be loads of fun, easy to follow and with great characters. Noah and Erin read through this book very well adding their vioces for theie characters even when they were not reading that chapter. Nicely done. 👌

3.5 stars

This book was decent, but it had promise to be a lot more. It kept slipping back into the typical mundane shifter romance trope with areas of soppiness and the heroine losing her spunk a bit, but then it would go back up to being better than the rest out there. Think if the author worked to make sure everything was better than the rest then this series could easily get 5 stars.

A great start

I love Cherise Sinclair books. If your not into BDSM this book is not for you but if you're in for a great romance with sexy alpha males then read/listen to her books.

I get chills when listening to Noah Michael Levine and Erin DeWard.

Please put the next books on Audible soon

Great new series,Can't wait for more!

Another great series from Cherise Sinclair. I have read/listened to all of the Masters of the Shadow Lands and am at present working my way through the Dark Heaven Books with a small diversion to listen to the Hour of the Lion. Cherise has written yet another good story with plenty of different characters with different shades of dark and light. It was good to have a strong central female character. The only complaint I have about this book is that I could have done with another chapter at the end to elaborate on the on-going relationships of the characters involved. I am hoping this will be expanded upon with the next books in the series. Cant wait for the next one in the series to be released. Soon I hope!!!
Love that this series also had Noah Michael Levine and Erin DeWard as the narrators Love these guys as they really bring the book to life!

Entertaining Series, Excellent Narration

I've repeatedly enjoyed all of Cherise Sinclair's series and stories. They're great romantic suspense. She provides entertaining surprises and hooks as well as excellent background in each story.
Most of her novells are erotic BDSM romances; however, the 4 books of this series with supernatural characters have a different take from the average "alpha-weres" as they include a bit of mythology and ancient beliefs in each. The suspense continues to be well written.
What makes her stories absolutely rock is the narration of Noah Michael Levine & Erin DeWard. Both are good narrators with a wide variety of voices. However, what makes them so fantastic is that they actually do simultaneous narration instead of the awful concept of "alternating chapters" most combo narrators provide. They make each character spring to life. To top it off, the editing is superb!

Could have been good.

The underlining story was absorbing but the sex scenes just went on and on to the point that it destroyed the book. I wish an editor would have stripped 90% of them.

Loved the duel narration

Story was okay, up to the point of the VERY lengthy sex scenes. For me, it took away from he story.
The Calum character was too weird for me, Alec was okay, and Joe, The boys grandfather was great.
Won’t be downloading any other books from this author. I like shifter books, but this one was gross for me.

The narration was one of the best duel narrations I’ve heard. Never understood why male narrators didn’t do all the male voices and female narrator doing all female voices. A+

OK, I was so ready for a new series. This is it.

I've read Alexandra Ivy, the Black Dagger books and sequels, Illona Anders innkeeper books (ready for another one of those soon) and a dozen others multiple times. I was so ready for another series and now I've found one. I love multiple narrators even if one is really good. I also love shifter books (Jane Yellowrock). Take a chance and dive into an edgy new strong female series with Cherise Sinclair.

Great start to a new series

Love the characters. They had depth, a truly great visual read. The middle drag just a little, but was still great. Looking forward to the next audiobook. The reason why I gave 4 stars was , like many authors, Ms. Sinclair s " Hour of the Lion", was a first audiobook listen for me, she made the ending way to quick. I really hate when authors do that. She gave a lot for the beginning, middle, but half, if that, of a chapter for the ending.

Great start to a new series.

New Author for me. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Narration smooth and easy with verbal demarcation of each character easy to differentiate. A few hanky sodden moment's. Builds a fantacy world with some twists that were original. Pleasently surprised by this new to me Author. Pretty graphic. Mature readers only. Humor was a great respite. Had a strong Heroine that I truely liked.

Outstanding Shifter Romance

I have the Four books in this series on Kindle and was so excited to see this on Audible. This is one of my favorites. Can not wait to get the rest of these on Audible. Loved the duel voice. Thank you Cherise Sinclair.

Love this series!

This series is absolutely amazing and I’m thrilled to finally see it on audible. The narration is spectacular, with both male and female narrators. Plot and action is great, and the sex ace

Great Story by Cherise Sinclair comes to Life!

Well, done! The writing is superb, I've read every word Cherise has published! I love listening to the story come to life with Noah and Erin. In this first book we are introduced to the Wild Hunt books,
Vicki is tough, trained in warfare, above all to protect and to serve her teammates and country. When she is kidnapped and rescues a tortured young shifter he makes her promise she will go to his Grandfather and tell him... This is only the beginning, Vicki finds way more than she could have ever anticipated or imagined, great read and fantastic listen! Adult romance that will make any Werecat purr
