SUMMARY
He doesn't believe in the paranormal. Can a gorgeous shifter prove him wrong?

Ethan Wayne is a paranormal investigator for the hottest reality show on TV, Spirit Seekers, but his love life is decidedly lukewarm. Reeling from a sudden break-up, he finds himself heading for France, where his team will be exploring the Château LeBlanc, searching for the ghost of a murdered kitchen maid. When he meets the château's reclusive owner, Jean-Luc LeBlanc, the attraction is fierce and instant—but Jean-Luc is keeping secrets the skeptical Ethan could never have imagined.

Jean-Luc's world collapsed with the death of his beloved Benoît. He no longer cares about producing his award-winning Champagne and even his closest family members can't rouse him from his self-imposed solitude. The last thing he wants is a team of ghost hunters intruding on his privacy and discovering the truth of his nature. The realization that one of these brash Americans is destined to be his new mate seems like a sick joke. But soon Jean-Luc has bigger things to worry about than his distrust of humans. His home and family are under threat—can he do what it takes to save all he holds dear, and let Ethan into his heart in the process?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence, mild BDSM and references to multiple partners.

No one can rouse Jean-Luc from his self-imposed solitude until a team of ghost hunters intrude on his privacy and the realization that one of the brash Americans is destined to be his new mate in this riveting paranormal m/m romance.

Reeling from a sudden break-up, Ethan Wayne has decided to focus his attentions on his career and taking the show international gives him that chance and the reader is filled with heated passion as Jean-Luc and Ethan discover that life truly does go on. The chemistry is sizzling and flows from the pages with vibrant intensity and scorching hot sex scenes while emotional turmoil adds depth and ensures that the readers can easily relate to the characters. The steady to fast paced smooth flowing plot mesmerizes readers with intrigue and romance while the strong compelling characters grab the reader's attention from the very beginning.

This heartwarming second chance at love could be cut short when some mysterious happenings inside the estate brings danger to those that Jean-Luc loves, adding suspense and excitement to the story while secrets and surprises adds lots of spice. Well written scenes and details draw the reader in and bring the story to life, making it easy for the reader to get completely caught up in the story.

The author has created a fascinating world of lion shifters with their own unique elements, full of passion and captivating characters. I enjoyed the story although I do believe that it would been better if it had focused a little more on the romance and intrigue and a little less on the wine and show due to the length of the book. Don't get me wrong, the information and details were quite interesting and added to the depth of the characters, so maybe I should say that the story should be expanded. Anyway, I am looking forward to reading the next Lionhearts romance.
