Ellery is no man’s submissive! The Dom is well known and respected by those from the local leather bars. He is no longer willing to take second-hand knowledge of what happens to the subs when they enter the lion’s den. He hoped his “sacrifice” would allow him to gain insight on the pride. Surprisingly, one lion in particular, Kefir, peaks his interest.

Kefir attended the sacrifices out of respect but was delighted he was there to witness the big man being presented to the pride. Ellery is powerful, confident and radiates a dominance that Kefir was unaware humans could possess. Will Ellery have to change his dominant ways? Will Kefir be enough to keep the big man happy?

Ellery’s Duty is the third installment of the Thrown to the Lions series. Kim Dare definitely surprised me with the angle for this current release. I enjoyed watching Ellery and Kefir interact and find the perfect groove for their unique situation. Kefir still has a great deal to learn about humans. While the meetings have given him some knowledge about dealing with human males, they have not prepared him for a man like Ellery. Ellery believes in taking care of what he deems his and Kefir’s name is quickly added to that exclusive list. The two fit together perfectly. It was like enjoying an erotic version of a Pay Day bar, a little saltiness mixed with just the right amount of sweetness.

The story has mild doses of BDSM during Ellery and Kefir’s erotic encounters. They are more sensual in nature than anything. One scene in particular during the prides sacrifice made me squirm in my seat. It made me wonder how many lions wished they were in Kefir’s shoes at that particular moment.

Hints about the future release were dribbled sporadically throughout the tale, giving just enough detail to ensure the story will be a juicy one. I’m anticipating the next release Ms. Dare so bring it on!
