Ellery’s Duty (A Thrown to the Lions Story 3) by Kim Dare

In the same universe of the two previous stories, Ellery’s Duty takes a twist: Kefir, the werelion, is not a Dominant in searching of a pet, but he is more a kitten who wants to find his Master and being a lap pet himself (see all the lapping, cuddling and all kitten gestures he has). Kefir has a gentle soul; in lion form he is for sure stronger than any human, but not as strong as other lions. He is small and lithe and he has no mean bone in him. He is clever but sincerely he has not the push to be a leader. In such situation, and inside his pride, it’s unlikely that he is able to find a soul mate, because another lion will not allow to a peer to submit, and an ordinary man is not considered strong enough to be Master of a lion.

Ellery is a human Dominant who wants to be sure the submissives they send to the Lions’ Den are taking care of. No one has really ever complained but is Ellery’s duty to be sure of that. So he proposes himself as a “submissive” to be thrown to the lions; problem is that Ellery is everything other than a submissive, both in appearance than attitude. The night he is thrown to the lions, no one of the werelion wants to “play” with him until Kefir doesn’t come along: Kefir is fascinated by Ellery, by the strength of the man. It’s really a tender scene, with Kefir looking at Ellery like a wonderful gift Kefir has no right to ask, and Arslan, the pride leader, who pushes Kefir to ask for the unthinkable.

It’s true that Kefir is a submissive for nature and in his case is really a question of nature, Kefir needs a protective man, he needs to feel safe and comfortable, but he also knows that he is a lion and a lion protects his pet. It was quite endearing to read about how Kefir called Ellery “his pet” in his mind, right after he and Ellery has a sexual encounter where Ellery was not a pet at all. But indeed Kefir is right in his thinking, as Arslan tells him: he is the submissive during sex, and in their personal relationship, but outside that, Kefir is the lion and Ellery the man, and so, in front of the pride, Kefir is responsible for Ellery. They will not be able to explain that to Ellery, or to have him accept that, but both Kefir than Arslan know that, and that is the only important thing.

Again a good and naughty story by Kim Dare, with right that light touch of BDSM to make it kinky.
