Loving the Lion ( Mail Order Mates book 1 ) by Lola Kidd with Review by Samantha

Curvy Erin Numm is over dating. At the tender age of twenty-eight, she’s seen it all. A string of bad dates and heartbreak has left her ready to put herself on the sideline. Her plans are changed when she meets an agent from Lovely and Kind Brides. The mysterious woman tells Erin she has the PERFECT match for her. Curious, Erin decides to give love one last try and join the mail-order bride agency.

Shifter Owen Brooks is a lion on a mission. He’s working on big plans but he’s having trouble crossing one special item off his to-do list; Find A Mate. A shifter isn’t complete until they find their mate and Owen’s had no luck in that department. After months of no matches, an LK Brides agent emails to let him know she has found his mate. The agent’s optimism is enough to give Owen hope that maybe his long search is over.

Follow two strangers as they embark on a journey to find their one true love. This is the first book in the Mail-Order Mates series. It is a standalone novella with a HEA. No cliffhanger!

'I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review'
Erin is over dating. She has had so many bad dates that she doesn't see the point in trying anymore. When someone from Lovely and Kind Brides approaches her and says she will be the perfect bride for someone in their system. She is intrigued as she knows that LK Brides caters to shifters. She agrees to meet with the woman and starts to get in contact with Owen.
Owen has had his profile in with LK Brides for a while. He was starting to think that they weren't going to find anyone for him. He lives in a town that mostly has shifters. All of the businesses are shifter owned. But the town is going down hill. They need to do something to bring life back to it. One way to do that is to get some women in the town. The men need to start finding wives. He can't believe his luck when he and Erin start emailing and hit it off so well.
I enjoyed the book. I thought that it was interesting. It wasn't a really spicy read. I like the mainly shifter town idea and that shifters are out in the open. It is a quick, enjoyable read and I definitely recommend reading. I am definitely interested in reading more from this author and in continuing reading this series.

While I LOVE books, it was actually a movie that started me on my romance obsession. My very first favorite movie was Disney's Cinderella. I was hooked from the opening note of "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" all the way until the "happily ever after" at the end. Now, I write my own "happily ever after" stories. Only mine feature more of a paranormal element and are a lot steamier than my old favorites.
