Peek Inside Pride of the Lion

When Araminta Davidson is invited to participate in a readers’ appreciation weekend, she feels like she’s arrived as an author. But what starts out as a fun weekend quickly turns surreal and deadly when she accidentally releases a shape-shifting immortal warrior from a five-thousand-year-old curse.

Finally freed from the carousal he’s been trapped on, Leander denies Hades and vows to beat the second part of the curse and find a way to free his comrades. The woman who released him calls to his animal nature, and he realizes she’s his mate. But is she as innocent as she seems, or was she sent by Hades? The clock is ticking, but not fast enough. If he can stay alive and evade Hades for twenty-four hours, he might be able to figure it out.

Each book in the Hades’ Carnival series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

"If you love fantasy/mythological romance novels with sexy dominant males and frustrating stubborn (but in a good way) female leads, you will definitely love this series." --Tina, Goodreads

"N.J. Walters is such an amazing writer! She gives everything needed for a book! This series does that and more. I love who these mates aren't "perfect", how strong they are, and how much these warriors love them! Leander is such a fierce warrior! He's just yummy!" --Carrie Fort, Goodreads

"I'm finding this series incredibly delightful, it's fresh and different and an exciting read." --Pet, Goodreads

Loved. Loved. LOVED ITTTTT!!!!!
Just letting you know right now, if you haven't completely loved the series so far, you should be wary of my review as I'm a bit biased since I've loved the series from the very beginning. Nonetheless, I hope you will still at least read my review!

Love the author and the book, my best read this month.
He briefly closed his eyes and nodded. When he looked back at her, his eyes were gleaming. “Make no mistake. You belong to me. To us.” He held up his hand and it morphed into the powerful paw of a predator before her very eyes. “There is nothing ...more

I'm finding this series incredibly delightful, it's fresh and different and an exciting read.
My only nit with it would be the instant sex. I'm by no means a prude, but I honestly think that level of trust given the stressful situation needed a leeetle bit more time before doing the nasty. However, i ...more

Stars: 4

Overall: I just want to start out by saying that I LOVE THIS SERIES and I'm so glad that i didn't let the Hades idea throw me off. The story has a perfect mix of sex, romance, horror and spiritual connection. So our story started out with Araminta on her way to a big book convention and she ...more

About the author

N.J. Walters

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years. One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same. N.J. has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
