Family Pride: Love and Legacy

Chris MacKinnon never liked having to live in the shadow of his older, too-sensible brother, pride leader, Mac. But being the second son has its privileges, and fun-loving Chris plans to enjoy them all.

When Mac takes a vacation on the island of St John for himself and his human mate, Zora, Chris tags along for ten days of fun in the sun with his latest girlfriend.

But then Chris meets and falls for Guinevere, a mysterious shifter who lives on the island. She’s everything he wants in a mate, and his one chance to have what Mac and Zora share: a lifelong bond of the deepest, truest love.

Guinevere is keeping a secret from Chris that may blow up his life as a lion shifter and destroy his relationship with Mac and sever his connection to the whole pride. Can Chris find a way to have his soul mate without losing everything, including his inheritance as co-leader of the MacKinnon pride?

Can love really conquer all?

Family Pride: Love and Challenges by Deborah A Bailey

Family Pride: Love and Challenges

Business owner Mac MacKinnon is a perfect catch: attractive, ambitious and successful. He’s a member of an old, established pride of lion shapeshifters, but determined to live life as a loner. Except that when Zora Mason walks into Mac’s coffee bar one day and applies for the position of assistant manager, he knows without a doubt he’s met the woman of his dreams.

Can she accept life with a shifter-boyfriend?

Zora knows a lot more about Mac (and the other shifters in town) than she’s been letting on. Falling in love with a sexy shifter is more than she bargained for when it comes to dealing with sibling drama, learning the business, and managing an alpha male who’s used to doing things his way. When a challenge to Mac’s Pride threatens to destroy Mac’s family, Zora has to decide whether to be claimed as his mate in a ritual in front of the pride.

Who knew that love with a lion shifter would be so challenging?

 

Family Pride: Blood FeverFamily Pride: Blood Fever

After claiming Zora Mason as his mate, and fighting off a threat to the MacKinnon pride, Mac is more than ready to get back to managing his coffee bar and settling into mated bliss. But just when it looks like things are quieting down, Mac and Zora find more challenges ahead.

Plans for Zora and Mac’s official introduction the to the pride, and the opening of the new coffee bar may be derailed when, gripped by a mysterious blood fever lingering after the leadership challenge, Mac is driven to the edge of his endurance as he fights to keep his inner lion under control.

Juggling her responsibilities in the business and her position as the mate of the pride leader becomes even more challenging when Zora is forced to confront her fear that Mac is changing into someone she doesn’t recognize.

As the fever pushes Mac to the edge, the revelation of an old, painful family secret proves to be the key to saving Mac’s life. Zora and Mac come up with a plan to end the threat of the fever forever, but that same plan can destroy them both.

Is their love strong enough to defeat the blood fever, so they can live happily ever after as mates?

Why Lion Shifters Make Sexy Romantic Heroes

Family Pride: Love and Challenges by Deborah A BaileyThere is something about shifters that makes them incredibly sexy, and the image of the male lion with the full mane is a symbol of power and courage.

Lions are considered to be the most sociable of the big cats, and that was a good fit for the lion shifter community I wanted to create. Female lions are the hunters, and in my shifter world, the female lion shifters are just as fierce. Since lions usually live in prides, I used those as family units for the shifters.

In the Family Pride series, the hero Mac MacKinnon becomes the pride leader, and he learns a lot of valuable lessons from the family matriarch, Lena. She had to fight to keep the pride together for her son (Mac’s father) to inherit, and she’s able to provide important guidance.

The heroine, Zora Mason is a human woman who falls in love with Mac, and through her eyes the reader is introduced to the lion shifter community. As I created the culture of the lion shifter world, I added several traditions and rituals.

One ritual in particular leads to a very sexy scene in book 1, Family Pride: Love and Challenges. Sorry, I’m not going to give away any spoilers! In book 2, Family Pride: Blood Fever, family history leads Mac to face the biggest challenge of his life. Though he wants to live a normal life with Zora, he has to come to terms with the fact he’ll always live in two worlds. Family Pride: Blood Fever

Shifters are popular romantic heroes because of the balance between the man and the wild, untamed beast within. When I created the shifter world, I wanted to put them in everyday human situations, but with a twist.

Though Mac is an entrepreneur with real-world challenges, he also has another side that is influenced by his inner lion.
He’s loyal and extremely protective–as any lion would be when it comes to looking after the pride. But at the same time, he has to deal with real-world issues, like running his coffee bar and managing family drama.

Perhaps that’s part of the appeal of shifters. On the surface they’re regular guys, but underneath there’s an element of danger and excitement because you never know what will happen when their inner animal is set free. It’s what attracted me to create this lion shifter world and why readers love sexy shifter heroes.
