World building was done around pre-existing characters and locations but it's not a problem for new readers to aclimate themselves to the story. I would recommend it for sure as the rest of the series. I just wished my pet peeve wasn't so strongly stroked at the beginning. For those wondering... I have a serious problem with assuming things without fact checking. For example: if you see a couple together with a child and you assume they are mom, dad and child... Don't assume. Period.

    Christmas in Bear Creek again! Yay! This is a great story about letting go of the past and looking towards the future. Penny has been hurt by a fortune hunter, so she goes to the Catherine Hotel outside of Bear Creek to get away from the embarrassment and pain. There she meets Charlie, who is her mate. These two are mismatched in fortune, but well matched in attitude and care for others. They both have to work to understand the other, but are very willing to do so. The mate bond does help that! L Christmas in Bear Creek again! Yay! This is a great story about letting go of the past and looking towards the future. Penny has been hurt by a fortune hunter, so she goes to the Catherine Hotel outside of Bear Creek to get away from the embarrassment and pain. There she meets Charlie, who is her mate. These two are mismatched in fortune, but well matched in attitude and care for others. They both have to work to understand the other, but are very willing to do so. The mate bond does help that! Lilly and Sally make an interesting complication. The solution is great. I loved how Charlie supports Penny, and vice versa. The pace is fast, the tone is upbeat and hopeful, the storyline is very much character oriented with some steamy scenes and vivid characters. I suggest you read at least the Silverbacks and Second Chances series before this series. If you want to start at the beginning read the Bear Bluff and Bear Creek box set, then the Return to Bear Bluff box set along with the Return to Bear Creek series (some in box sets), the Silverbacks and Second Chances box set and this one. There are a few more series set in or around Bear Creek and Bear Bluff also. So if you haven't already read these, you have a lot to read! Enjoy!

    3 & 1/2 stars rounded up. This was a sweet shifter insta-love story. Though this is part of a series, they are all written where they can be read independently from each other, with just a small tiny bit of overlap for a few of the characters. I did like the main characters for the most part, though Charlie was so wrapped up into the lives of his best friend & her daughter. I'm glad he was such a good guy to help her out, showing how much heart he has. But -I can't explain why, but it bothered me 3 & 1/2 stars rounded up. This was a sweet shifter insta-love story.

There were some inconsistencies in the plot that kind of bothered me too (like how Julius -a hotel owner, could find out details about her con-ex-husband, but her super-duper wealthy titled father couldn't). I felt the ending wasn't enough, a bit incomplete, leaving me wanting something to give me a better closure on the total story in this book.

    Sweet shifter romance This is a sweet shifter romance, with a likable couple. It does feature instalove, but that was OK with me, since shifter romances always do. I really liked Charlie -- he was a sweetheart, and just such a great guy. I liked how he willingly took in his pregnant friend when she had nowhere else to go, then helped her raise her daughter. It never occurred to him to ask them to leave, as he considered them to be his family. I liked Penny too, but I did wish she would have stood u Sweet shifter romance This is a sweet shifter romance, with a likable couple.

    Liked both Penny and Charlie. An enjoyable story with a few misrepresentations believed due to not asking facts. A slight comedy of errors one could say.

    Gotta love a lion Kindle Unlimited purchase By Harmony Raines Charlie and Penny are so cute together. Charlie is a lion that is there for his friends even to the point of opening his own home. Penny is not wanting to spend Christmas with her family so she goes to The Christine to be pampered. Instead, she finds her happy ever after. This my favorite book of the series. Like all of HR books there was romance and respect. And the best thing HEA.

    Another wonderful feel good read from the imagination of Harmony Raines! This time the shifter is a lion and his previously mate less life is a little complicated. His fated mate is human and from a different social class, but she is having some serious self doubt issues due to her greedy, lying ex husband. It all takes some untangling and is well worth the read!

    I borrowed and read the KU Edition... I have never been disappointed in my reading of Harmony's stories and this is not an exception to that statement. I really enjoy the fact that characters from previous stories are also threaded into them. I have read most of her books, and will definitely continue! I borrowed and read the KU Edition...

    Good book I love the Bear Creek series each book is so well written and enjoyable from first page to last. Penny was betrayed by her husband and wants nothing to do with men and love. Charlie hasn't had time for love but has long for his mate. Together they find a life and happiness and a sweet HES.

    Well it's June but who cares. Any time is a good time to read a really good Christmas story and this one is really good. It has the holiday spirit, love for a child, and a lion's love for a titled Lady. It is filled with romance and love, a wronged woman and a truly wonderful ending. Enjoy.

    I used a Kindle Unlimited book for my review. I voluntarily chose to review this book. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. I can’t believe how authors can write books so different. I love this author’s Bear Creek and Bear Bluff stories. This time a lion gets the whammy. Loved this book.

    The Lion Loves a Lady Lady Penelope ( Penny ) heads to Bear Creek after her marriage ends. Not that it lasted long but to find out you were married for your money. Kinda knocks a girl down. Charlie knew as soon as he saw Penny she was his. Now to convince her. Great story.

    Another warm tale from Harmony Raines. The book is very much like the hot chocolate several of the characters within the covers favor -- comforting, enticing and great for a cold day. The story is about values and priorities and a woman finding herself as well as her mate. Well done.

    Harmony Raines is always a good read. Love may not always be the way you want it to be, but with family and the right people in your life it can become something rare. Read and enjoy.
