Love sometimes comes in threes.

With his mother plotting to have him wed, Niall decides to sneak out of the fae palace and fulfill one of his greatest fantasies. At the Unconventional bar, he finds a pair of lion shifters looking to spice up their love life. Unable to resist the strong attraction between them, Niall lets the persuasive pair take him home.

Jovan and Luka have been searching for their third for years. When Niall stumbles into the bar, their shifter instincts tell them the innocent fae could be their long sought mate. After a sensual night together, they’re certain the beautiful man was fated to be theirs.

His guards fetch him from the shifters’ bed and Niall is taken away from the pair. Upset about Niall’s return to the palace and a possible arranged marriage, the lion shifters battle to decide their future—should they go and fetch their mate or let it only be the one-night stand Niall promised them?

I loved this book. The plot line was so unique and fascinating I had to read it. I loved the idea mixing a Fae with Lion shifters. Wow

Reading about the fae’s life growing up with his cruel mother was very sad, but I’m glad he got his HEA. I wish there would’ve been more about the Fae culture and about the magic of the Fae, but this is a short story.

The lion shifters were great. They were big and bold and growly, but not too much. They were perfect. How they treated Nial was wonderful and sweet.

The ending was great. I don’t want to give it away so I really can’t say anything more about it, but trust me. It was good. The author is one of my favorites so you know it’s going to be good.

I highly recommend this book. It’s a short story so you can read it under two hours. The author is fantastic so you know it will be great.



While I did find this story very steamy it was just too short for me to be able to like the three of them together..

With this story we get Neill a Fae who escapes for one night after he finds out his mother is planning on having him marry. He meets Luca and Jovan who are lion shifters that are mates looking for their third.

There was steam with this short story which I really did like and I also really liked the authors pretense of this story. I would have just liked to have seen them together a little more than I got to so I could feel like they made a good ménage.

So all together I really did like this story, I would have just liked to have seen a little more of all three of them together.

Amber Kell has made a career out of daydreaming. It has been a lifelong habit she practices diligently as shown by her complete lack of focus on anything not related to her fantasy world building.

When she told her husband what she wanted to do with her life he told her to go have fun.

During those seconds she isn’t writing she remembers she has children who humor her with games of ‘what if’ and let her drag them to foreign lands to gather inspiration. Her youngest confided in her that he wants to write because he longs for a website and an author name—two things apparently necessary to be a proper writer.

Despite her husband’s insistence she doesn’t drink enough to be a true literary genius she continues to spin stories of people falling happily in love and staying that way.

She is thwarted during the day by a traffic jam of cats on the stairway and a puppy who insists on walks, but she bravely perseveres..

She also writes under the name Mikela Q. Chase
