A Premier lion shifter, Hugh Landry dedicates his life to leading the Berk pride with strength and confidence. Hundreds of people depend on Hugh for safety, success, and happiness. And at over a century old, with more power than can be contained in one body, Hugh relies on a Siphon lion shifter to carry his excess force.

When the Siphon endangers himself and therefore the pride, Hugh must pay attention to the man who has been his silent shadow for a decade. What he learns surprises him, but what he feels astounds him even more.

Two lions, each born to serve, rely on one another to survive. After years by each other's side, they'll finally realize the depth of their potential, the joy in their passion, and a connection their kind has never known.

What happens when the most important person in a man's life is standing right in front of him... and he doesn't even realize it?

The responsibility of securing the safety of hundreds of shifters is one that Hugh Landry takes very seriously. Powerful beyond measure after over a hundred years of leadership, it's a weight he is long accustomed to carrying. The symbiotic relationship he shares with his Siphon is the only thing capable of harnessing the energy that surges through his body.

Smaller and weaker than most lion shifters, Siphons are a rare breed of shifters whose lives have only one purpose, to bond with Premier lions. Coveted by the Alphas who greatly outnumber them, Siphons live in isolation most of the time for their own protection. Desolate and alone, with only a lifetime of solitude to look forward to, Hugh's Siphon eventually gives up hoping for more. It is an act of desperation that forces his Alpha to finally take notice of the person beneath the lion who shares his power.

If paranormal authors formed a pride, Cardeno C. would be an alpha. With a mixture of signature world building and strong character development, JOHNNIE is the first in a new collection that is sure to be a "must read" from this point forward. Captivating and true to life, CC's characters earn their happy endings one lesson at a time and I loved every minute I spent in this world!
