Meg is a lioness on the run. After being used and semi-abused by her pride for more years than she cares to count, she's leaving the pride life behind and heading to Strange Hollow. A new life, a new home, awaits her there and she can't wait to begin anew and settle down to make little lions of her own. Only, the one man who qualifies for the job also has a tiny little problem. He's a man-slut.
Jacob loves his slutastic behavior and wouldn't have it any other way. Men, women, either, both, they all do it for him. Until he meets a certain curvaceous lioness who changes the rules and makes his bear want something he's never wanted... a mate.
Meg is tired of being used and abused by the lions in her pride. Her body is up for the taking twice a month and she has had enough. She longs for love by a mate and independence from the archaic traditions of her pride. Disappearing without a trace sounds like a great idea.
Jacob can't be more aptly described other than a man-slut. Men, women, it doesn't matter as long as they're willing. He doesn't believe that there is such a thing as a mate for him, so he takes his pleasure where he can get it. However, getting all hot and bothered for anything walking on two legs is becoming more difficult.
Welcome to the town of Strange Hollow... Although this is a short story, I didn't find it as appealing as I would have liked. The scene descriptions were excellent, but the relationship between Meg and Jacob seemed to move too quickly to be believable. There was more time spent describing Meg's difficult life and her travel to the town of Strange Hollow than there was of the relationship between Meg and Jacob. I really liked the character of the town matriarch, Jacinda as well as the brief glimpse of the pup Ethan. A town full of out casted misfits definitely has its appeal.
Recommended reading for those in need of a quick and relatively painless short story about a curvaceous lioness and her man-slut.
