    1. 3 1/2 ESTRELLASHacía bastante tiempo que no leía una novela de Christine Feehan (y las última que leí pertenecía a su serie de soldados fantasmas) y me ha gustado reencontrarme con ella. "La guarida del león" es una buena novela romántica, es sensual, engancha y la pareja protagonista, principalmente él, Nicolai DeMarco, están muy bien construidos. Elegí esta novela porque tras leer la contraportada vi que se trataba de una "versión" de La Bella y la Bestia y siento debilidad por este [...]

    2. Lair of the Lion is the first historical I've read by Christine Feehan. It's hard to believe I read my first Feehan book last January. Since then, I've glommed her backlist. She's one of my favorite authors now. This isn't one of my favorites, but it was a good, enjoyable book. I think my problem is, I really don't care for gothic romance, in general. I think too much time is built on going into the mystery and the dark forces out to get the heroine. I like my romance to focus on the attraction [...]

    3. A beauty and the beast tale set in the Italian mountainside and an indeterminate era, with the expected gothic, PNR and fantasy elements. The h takes a long and arduous journey through icy mountain passes to reach the lands of the fabled and feared Don Nikolai DeMarco, who she feels is the only one capable of rescuing her beloved brother from the dungeons of an evil and avaricious neighbor. She has heard a lot of rumors about the H and his land, but nothing prepares her for the horrifying realit [...]

    4. I was excited to begin this book for my local romance readers group because I'd heard many positive things about author Christine Feehan and the book appeared to be a new twist on the beauty and the beast theme (one of my personal favorites). Sadly, things didn't work out between me and author Christine Feehan (too much melodrama for me) and now I'm weary of beginning her vampire series (most of which I already own). Somebody please tell me this book was a fluke!Isabella is a beautiful, headstro [...]

    5. Hacia mucho tiempo que no leía a esta autora, escogí este libro por su sinopsis, por ser una "versión" de la bella y la bestia, tengo debilidad por este cuento, y reconociendo el estilo de la autora con los primeros libros que leí de ella de su saga oscura, me encontré una novela bien planeada, sensual,entretenida y que me hizo de nuevo rememorar, con sus diferencias,claro, este precioso cuento

    6. Lair of the Lion is a fascinating paranormal romance rerelease by Christine Feehan.As with most of Feehan’s books, Lair of the Lion is filled with lust, betrayal, rejection, mystery, enemies and jealousy. Would we have it any other way?Isabella Vernaducci escaped a hunting party that was searching for her brother, and with only his help did she manage to elude the soldiers. Spending every cent, she desperately sought Nicholai DeMarco, the one man whom all other dons feared.The curse that plagu [...]

    7. I would have probably skimmed through to the end if it was an e-book, but as it's audio, I just can't take the awkward phrasing and repetition. WE GET IT - he's TAWNY and CATLIKE. Like a LION. (Or pseudo-Italian: leone!) Tawny tawny tawny. I want to claw my OWN eyes out at this point. And then she gets a whiff of a sickly-evil-malevolent spirit that makes her sick with its evil malevolence. See also: hearing a ring ringing in your ears, seeing with your eyes, etc. So many words wording around wo [...]

    8. Finally. Oh don't get me wrong , this was not a bad read . It is good but during reading sometimes you suffer boredom which is a problem. In general , it is a good one.

    9. Lair of the Lion is a Beauty and the Beast story and one of my all time favorites! Christine Feehan is well known for her paranormal romance novels, but this book isn't part of any of her series.This is a Gothic tale of a man cursed and the woman he traps in his castle. I love this book very much and highly recommend it!

    10. Isabella is in desperate need to save her brother who has been captured and tortured, and goes to the only Don she knows that is powerful enough to help her. Full of courage and strength she heads up to his valley, rumored to be ridden with lions, she knows she could very well perish, but desperation and fear for her brother keeps her going forward until she makes it to his homehis lair. After meeting the rumored beast, Don Nicolaie DeMarco, she makes a pact with him, his help in rescuing her br [...]

    11. 3.5 starsThis book confused me right up until the end. I spent too much time trying to figure out if the hero was a shifter or just a man with a bad reputation. It was a strange book.The heroine was likable and heroic. Too forgiving at the end, but I guess that was the point of the story. The hero was also likable, but a bit of a cold jerk at times. Yea I get that he is scared of the curse, but come on, you do not need to be the king of mixed signals. The shit he pulled after they first slept to [...]

    12. i loved this book. I have always adored fairytales and Beauty and the Beast has to be one of my favourites. I loved this gothic and darkly sensual twist that Christine Feehan spun. From the very first sentence I was captivated by her amazing style of writing. This is my first, and certainly not my last of her books.Everything about this book. The writing style. The characters. The history. The love. Everything was just amazing. I haven't read anything this good in a long while. Not only is it a [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this retelling of Beauty and the Beast.I'd previously been a bit of a hit and miss with Feehan's writing. Mostly miss. See, I have this thing about men who are too controlling in books (in my opinion anyway, which sometimes differs greatly from that of others of the female persuasion). I know, for some, it makes their toes curl to be dominated and told what to do yada yada yada. But for me, it just makes me want to hurl something.But in this book, although the male lead characte [...]

    14. It's a 2.65 stars book I guess? The historical details in the story are quite good (I'm not an expert, though), the main characters are pretty much okay and they behave in a way which suits their positions and their backgrounds, I'm not too fond of the female lead but she's agreeable so I'm okay with her. But I was annoyed by the endless angst by the end of the book, and the tortured male lead "I'm dangerous! Stay away from me! I can't marry you because I am going to hurt you!" routine is not en [...]

    15. El libro me ha gustado pero sobre todo la primera mitad pues en la segunda mitad todo me parece un tanto repetitivo y el desenlace tampoco es maravilloso, aun así me ha gustado. Aunque hay un detalle de la autora (supongo que es de ella) que me parece molesto y es el de repetir constantemente una serie de palabras en italiano como para que sepas donde pasan lo hechos y a mi no me ayudaba en la lectura, me parece un fallo garrafal, me parece bien que sean italianos pero si el libro esta en un id [...]

    16. Abandonado 25%La Bella y La Bestia es una de mis historias favoritas, porque el modo en el que se desarrolla la relación de los protagonistas es preciosa, se conocen y después, con el tiempo, se enamoran, ambos evolucionan como personas para amarse.Este retelling no supo abordar el romance, al 20% ya se promesan amor eterno. NO, GRACIAS, PASO.

    17. La historia me ha encantado. Es una versión bastante fiel y a la vez original de la bella y la bestia. Los personajes están muy bien perfilados y la relación de amor me ha convencido y cautivado totalmente. Sencillamente una buena historia, que te mantiene enganchada, con una buena relación amorosa y tramas de acción, misterioMuy recomendada

    18. So this book had me so anxious. Throughout the entire thing you think your getting a small glimpse or idea as to how it will end distrust, burning at the stake, your betrothed attempting rip out your jugular like small prey Well none of that ever happened. The ending was quite subtle and didn't really live up the to hype of the curse. Although I loved the ending I felt a little cheated about all that worrying for nothing. Also this author has a way of dragging out the middle of her books maybe i [...]

    19. Lair of the Lion is one of Christine Feehan's non-Carpathian supernatural romance stories from 2002. This is her take on the Beauty and the Beast story, and I really enjoyed it overall. I had read it quite awhile ago, and forgotten about it. The library had it listed as a new copy, so I checked it out. Isabella Vernaducci is an impoverished aristocrat whose brother Lucca is being held prisoner by Don Rivellio, whose had his eye on their lands for years. He is slated for death, and only the power [...]

    20. What a waste! Lair of the Lion is the story of beautiful aristocrat Isabella, and the tormented cursed Nicolai. It is set in medieval Italy, and comes with scatterings of italicized Italian phrases randomly interspersed in conversations. The premise is that Nicolai is cursed to be part beast, and Isabella's love is supposed to save him. A lot could have been done with that, but the author really dropped the ball on this one. This could have very easily been a short story, about halfway through I [...]

    21. This is the story of Isabella, a beauty, who had no home. Her life as she had known was gone. She had traveled to the Alps to see the mysterious and elusive Don Nikolai DeMarco. She intends to ask him to save her brother Lucca. A curse lives on; whereas everyone sees a lion- the Beast- she sees a man. Nikolai agrees to help Isabella if she stays with him and becomes his wife. From the start, the mixing of two languages is everywhere: palazzo, castillo, padre, fratillo, cara mia, while it appear [...]

    22. I adore this book. Feehan's writing style is perfectly suited for gothic novels. Although I generally hate how domineering her heroes are vs how limp her heroines are, this book is a huge exception. Right from the beginning they start out on even ground. The heroine is the beauty, strong and caring, with a solid streak of honesty that makes her stand out. The hero is the tortured beast who knows he shouldn't keep the heroine for himself but can't seem to walk away from her. Everything about this [...]

    23. This was a cool new twist on the classic version of beauty and the beast. I got sucked into the story immediately. Isabella was so determined to save her brother. Making a difficult and frightening journey through dangerous lands prowled by lions was only the beginning of this tale. Isabella Vernaducci finally arrives at Don Nicolai DeMarco's home to ask for help. He agrees, if she'll marry him. She agrees. He puts a plan in motion to free Isabella's brother, and their odd courtship begins. Thro [...]

    24. Reseña completa--- bit/RGL_TdLEn resumen “La Guarida del León” es un libro romántico que toma el cueto de “La Bella y la Bestia” y lo vuelve a contar de una forma espectacular, con un ritmo ágil que hace que la lectura sea muy fluida y las paginas pasen rápidamente, personajes bien trazados y situaciones tanto dramáticas, románticas e hilarantes, a pesar de un final un tanto apresurado y un caso grave de amor instantáneo recomiendo esta novela para todos los amantes de los retell [...]

    25. For what it's worth, I really gave it a try like a 100 pages of a try to get into it. Turns out, adult romance is not my thing, and it was difficult to keep myself interested. I wasn't even looking forward for the raunchy stuff because I was bored. No, not even bored but just frustrated. The plot and the style of writing just weren't up to my preference. And well, that's all I have to say because I didn't finish reading it.

    26. 3.5/5Isabella Vernaducci, una joven capaz de hacer hasta lo imposible por salvar la vida de su hermano; se adentrará al bosque,un lugar que según se dice esta maldito, pero a pesar de esto ella ira en busca de Don Nicolai DeMarco, pues es el único que puede salvarle la vida a Luca – su hermano-. ¿Qué estará dispuesta a sacrificar por la vida de su hermano?Un maldición, un mal presente en el pueblo, leones al acecho, una traición, son algunas de las cosas que le esperan a Isabella…

    28. This standalone novel by Feehan was not as good as Scarletti Curse. THAT book was awesome and a favorite of mine. Lair of the Lion just felt a little choppy and nonsensical at times. It was entertaining enough, but the story needed some tweaking.
