Lion Pride leader Silas Murdock is not a coward by any stretch of the imagination. However, Silas did regret his rash decision to allow a stranger to travel along with some of his pride members. That last minute judgment resulted in the loss of lives from an assassin’s attempt to murder Silas, as well as the plane crash. Silas, too, would have died had it not been for Dr. Theo Lucas, an Alaskan wolf shifter. 

On Thin Ice is the first book in the Ariel Estates series. The plot is a budding romance story with plenty of enemy fighting action, mystery and sensual lovemaking. The characters are creditable. Silas is a natural born leader, whose first priority is the welfare of his pride. Believing honesty is the best policy, Silas did not hide his bisexual nature from the other shifters living on the estate.  Nevertheless, not all pride members were as accepting as others. The trip to Alaska proved to be an emotional revelation for Silas on several levels. Not the least of them being his immediate desire for Theo. All too soon, the reality of having a long term relationship between them is brought to light. Theo, who has his own emotional issues, is needed by his wolf pack. Silas fears the lions will never accept a wolf in their territory. I will be interested to see how this long distance romance develops in the future.

Jessica Lee has created a fantastic HFN saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
