"an entertaining read"
In an attempt to solve his planets' lack of females, the
Chantrea, Hunter Shi'lan, sends his brother, Taliff, on a
quest for a
lost colony of lionese, who disappeared among the stars.
Taliff is to
go alone, search out the colony, and bring back as many
possible. Taliff hopes to find his own mate and complete
ritual, but he doubts that he will find his true mate.
discovers the lost colony on Earth, Taliff abducts some
and on his last trip down to the surface, he discovers his
Eve Roberts. It seems that the lionese women from Earth
as submissive as their counterparts back on Chantrea, and
Taliff some headaches. To add to his problems, someone
seeks to stop
Taliff from returning to Chantrea with the women.
TALIFF'S CURE is more of an erotic romance that has a
fiction backdrop, than a science fiction romance with
erotic scenes. I
would have liked a more in depth explanation of lionese
However, I enjoyed reading the romance that develops
between Taliff and
Eve. I particularly enjoyed the fact that Taliff is
willing to stand
up for Eve against his own societal prejudices. Eve is a
independent female, who refuses to become a doormat and
seeks a true
partner. All in all, TALIFF'S CURE is an entertaining
read about a
of lion shapeshifters, and I look forward to reading

Eve Roberts is in trouble. All the males in her pride have started to pay attention to her every move, eyeing her as potential mate material. Problem is, she’s seen these men in action and she isn’t too impressed. She knows why the men are looking at her. She’s heading into this year’s heat cycle. She has to do something to thwart their attention. What she needs is a mate who will respect who she is and let her have her independence. What she gets is more than she bargained for.
Taliff Shi’Lan is on a mission. Find a mate and take her to his home—twenty light years away. The women of Chantrea, his home world, are no longer capable of giving birth to female children, so it’s up to the males to search the galaxy for their mates. He finds his on a backward planet called Earth. He expects to find a submissive mate—a woman to cater to his every need. What he gets is more than he bargained for.
