Literary Nymph Reviewer: Critter Nymph 

Leo was forced to become the blood slave to a coven of vampires.  He never thought he would ever leave there alive but when he gets the chance to escape, he takes it.  After he winds up in the hands of Maddox, Leo wonders if he’s gone from the frying pan into the fire. 

Blood of a Leo is the first book in the new series, Solomon’s Pride, by author Dawn H. Hawkes.  As the first book, this story does every thing it should.  Not only are you drawn in by the main characters, Leo and Maddox, but also by many of the secondary characters as well.  While the passion between the two main characters is hot and heats up the pages, it is the sub-plot that will really hold your interest.   

Blood of a Leo is peppered with a variety of feline shifters, as well as vampires.  These vamps are not your usual cuddly vamps that find their way into today’s romances.  These guys are all bad to the bone, leaving the Pride to try and police their actions.  The story has many twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing.  The ending, while satisfactory, clearly sets up the story for book two.  Shifter lovers should really give this story a look; they will not be disappointed.
