Brooding Enforcer, Sleeping Lion.
Mercury’s Mate died when he was still in the Labs. He is one of the strongest breeds ever created and was certain that a 15 year old girl in his lab was his mate. He was attracted to her and was. Tasting the hormone in his mouth at the time that she died on a mission. After which, he went feral and killed a bunch of scientists and trainers in the Lab before he was subdued. They were able to put him on a drug therapy which basically suppressed his inner Lion and his fierce control has kept the beast chained deep down inside him ever since, despite being weaned off the drugs.
Ria Rodriguez arrives at Sanctuary at the request of Dane Vanderale, she works for the Leo as a paper pusher as far as the people of Sanctuary know. She is actually there to see if she can look into outgoing transmissions and decipher any codes. Code-breaking is one of he skill sets and she is looking to uncover a spy within Sanctuary who is selling secrets of mating heat and extended lifespans to pharmaceutical companies.
Mercury is her bodyguard and he is attracted to her from the start though he knows she will never be his mate, he still wants her. Ria is attracted to Mercury but doesn’t want a one night stand or to get hurt. This is another great story with lots of unexpected twists and turns and of course hot romance between the two main characters. I just can’t get enough.
