Hidden deep within Sierra Leone, West Africa is a tribe of lion shape-shifters who have survived for centuries undetected by the human world. Lance Harrold, a geologist from Austin, Texas, getting separated from his research team in the plains, ends up deep in the Sehki pride's territory. A lioness spots him, and sensing something familiar about him, she saves him from another lioness. The last thing he remembers before going into shock is that the lioness that saved him had blue eyes.
When he wakes up hours later in a hospital in Freetown, he sees those same blue eyes staring back at him, only they belong to the beautiful Dr. Leonessa Kamara. Now Lance is determined to discover the truth about Leonessa, but what he finds out will change his life and hers forever.
