Tarian Silver Lion (New Tarian Pride, #2)
Talon Lawson is a runner. He’s been on the move to keep his daughter safe for years, and now it’s a habit he isn’t capable of breaking. Too long in one place, and his inner lion pushes him to move on. He’s sworn to himself he will only make sure his daughter, Emerald, is settled in her new home with her mate, and then he’ll leave, but something more is anchoring him to the New Tarian Pride. A battle with a rival Pride left him injured, and he was nursed back to health by a quiet, mysterious lioness named Rose. The animal in him says to run before he gets drawn too far into this new Pride, but the man in him can’t stop thinking about the silver-haired beauty. Rose’s home has been destroyed by a rival Pride of lion shifters, and she’s taken it upon herself to handle everything quietly and alone, like she always does. But when a big, burly, silver lion shifter named Talon falls into her life, she can’t help but find excuses to see him. For the first time in years, a man makes her feel safe, and like everything will be all right. But the cost of war between her Pride and the Old Tarians is steep, and it’s taking it’s toll on the animal inside of her. And the harder she tries to dig the Pride out of the hole that’s consumed them, the more she thinks she might not want to do all of this alone anymore. Broken hearts are for the young though, and Talon is a flight risk. She’ll have to try some new tactics to get this rogue male to stick around--even if it means setting them both free. Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

She is 62 and he is 57, shifters always have extremely long lives, older ones should have a story too, everyone deserves happiness. This story was heartbreaking, they both did what they got the same of the other and ended up hurting themselves. This story was short, but beautiful.

    Loved that Talon and Rose were older characters (57 and 62 respectively). I would have loved a full-length novel about them because we don't get great stories about characters in this demographic often. But I did enjoy the story that we got. Just would have loved more, because I really liked Talon and Rose.

    This one was a fun one to read. I liked how both Talon and Rose were so stunned that they found something with each other. But the best was how the rest of the New Tarian pride reacted. The bit with the post cards broke my heart, even as sweet as it was.

    There just wasn’t enough...I know this is a novella,and a novella is a short story,but to me there just wasn’t enough...I really liked Rose and Talon,and there just wasn’t enough...These were two very interesting characters,two older MC’s with ages you rarely if EVER get in a book or story... Not just two grey haired guardians there/here to protect those younger than them or to just stand around imparting wisdom to those willing to listen. Not there to just tell the younger ones to do this or th There just wasn’t enough...I know this is a novella,and a novella is a short story,but to me there just wasn’t enough...I really liked Rose and Talon,and there just wasn’t enough...These were two very interesting characters,two older MC’s with ages you rarely if EVER get in a book or story... Not just two grey haired guardians there/here to protect those younger than them or to just stand around imparting wisdom to those willing to listen. Not there to just tell the younger ones to do this or that. No for once we get the privilege of seeing that being older can still be alive and sexy and vital in ways that are about seeing you still have a life to live and you can see feel sexy and desired and loved....But Sadly out of the 13 chapters in the book, only in the first five do actually get to have the H and h together,( well of course til they are reunited for their HEA that for me felt more like a HFN with how it was done) .Just five chapters together out of 13 ,one sex scene, they’ve barely started to get together and barely started to relax with each other and become couple, when they are parted..Sorry the spoiler there,but it kinda ticked me off...Now while I can understand why they get separated and it might have been ok, if IF they didn’t back together just a scant few pages before the book ended...WTH?!?!?For once, ONCE the H and h are actually grown up and older, and we get a chance to read a about a couple who have life experience and we can hopefully get a new/different take on loving and romance with ppl who have lived life and hopefully have more sense than all the young and foolish 20 somethings we ALWAYS get in these books...Bitter ? Yeah a little... I’m over 40, and PNR is my fave type of romance to read,and shifters in particular ... Lord, if we could be one mI’d love it. Though hopefully one a 100% less troubled than the shifters Ms. Joyce usually writes about.I was soo excited when I saw this,both MC’s are older than me but you rarely see older MC’s in PNR unless it’s a shifter or Vampire or maybe a Fae and then it’s usually the H because his h is some clueless 18-22 yr. old virgin.To many books act like a h over 30 is a “ mature” or older woman,gah. I kid you not I once tried ( yes tried) to read a story where the heroine was only 32 but has the nerve to call herself a “cougar” and tried to reject the H because he was 27.Seriously ? That was sooo dumb.Anyway, sorry for the rant, I should be sticking to the facts.This is a wonderful story about to lost and hurting souls finding each other and getting together but to me it’s dearly hurt by it brevity.. Stories where we get to see two ppl w/some grey in their having fun and being sexy and enjoying life as just ppl is soo rare and far between for most there story for them to be apart and then end five seconds after they get back together is just wrong...We deserved more and soo did they.Nice story but to me it’s a desperately incomplete one.

    I want to start by saying that I LOVE this author. I have loved almost every story that she has written and she's an auto-buy author for me. But this.... this was not my favorite story. It had nothing to do with older characters, which I honestly thought was going to give me pause.My problem with this story was that I didn't feel the attraction/chemistry with the couple. Most of the early attraction happened off the page for Rose while she was healing Talon. I just didn't feel the same connectio I want to start by saying that I LOVE this author.

Most of the early attraction happened off the page for Rose while she was healing Talon. I just didn't feel the same connection that he was supposed to have with her. (view spoiler)[ While he was traveling around we only got her point of view with a little of his narrative in the postcards. I would have loved to have seen him actually struggle. Yes I know it's a short story, but it would have only added a couple of pages to the novel. (hide spoiler)]I know that we know some of Rose's background from Grim's books, but I felt like there was too much of Talon telling me how strong and badass Rose is. That's the thing I've been coming back to in the last few of these novels. There isn't enough showing me how badass the women are. You're just telling me they are from the men's mouth. It's his words and not the actual actions of the female character herself. The perfect example of showing me how strong a female character is instead of having the man tell me with his words is with Alison and Kirk (Boarlander Silverback) or Georgia and Jason (Gray Back Ghost Bear). They both had amazing badass moments.I know how hard it is to write and finish one book, never mind 12+ books a year, I honestly don't know how she does it. But I do wish that we got to spend a little more time with the characters in the stories like I felt we did with the older Damon's mountains books. They might be the same length but the stories felt deeper and more rich than they do now. :(

    Second Time Around!!! Talon Lawson was a runner, he and his family left the Old Tarian Pride many years ago. He lost his mate, so it was just him and his daughter Emerald ( TARIAN ALPHA ). They've been on the run for so long now he can't seem to break his habit. He got restless staying in one place plus his Lion was pushing him to keep moving. But the man wanted to make sure Em was settled in her new place with her mate, the Alpha of the New Tarian Pride. There was something or should I say some Second Time Around!!! Talon Lawson was a runner, he and his family left the Old Tarian Pride many years ago. He lost his mate, so it was just him and his daughter Emerald ( TARIAN ALPHA ). They've been on the run for so long now he can't seem to break his habit. He got restless staying in one place plus his Lion was pushing him to keep moving. But the man wanted to make sure Em was settled in her new place with her mate, the Alpha of the New Tarian Pride. There was something or should I say someone more who was tethering him to the Pride. Rose, has always taking it up to herself to handle everything on her own. Despite all the losses she'd suffered, she did everything she could to make sure the New Tarian Pride had a worthy Alpha. Her Pride went to war with a rival Pride which left the father of her Alpha's mate injured. She was drawn to the man, and taking care of him was a delightful treat. Her Lioness didn't get attached to people but just like her inner animal chose Ronin as her family years ago, she found herself getting attach to the rogue Talon. Even though she knew better.Talon and Rose took things to the next level. They help each other overcome their mutual ordeals at the hands of the Old Tarian Pride. He was still a runner but the brave, badass lioness held on to the hopes that he would find his way back to her. Which he did.LoL I loved how protective Grim and Ronin were when they found out that their nana was interested in Talon and vice versa. Meanwhile Em couldn't be happier that her father finally found someone to share his life with. TARIAN SILVER LION is the second book in T. S. Joyce's TARIAN PRIDE series. It was engrossing, captivating, fun and beautifully written. Another masterpiece by Ms Joyce! 5++++P. S. Looking forward to what comes next! :-D

    I really loved the fact that older people can have HEA's too...even after losing mates years before. I dont know what it was about this but it was ok for me. I think perhaps we're used to getting a whole story but since this was a shorter novella we didnt get all we wanted from it. Loved Rose and Talon I truly did. I also wanted that chemistry we feel in her other books but maybe it was the age thing and that its not a true mate thing but finding someone you are drawn to and come to love...just I really loved the fact that older people can have HEA's too...even after losing mates years before.

Loved Rose and Talon I truly did. I also wanted that chemistry we feel in her other books but maybe it was the age thing and that its not a true mate thing but finding someone you are drawn to and come to love...just simple as that. Both of them have tragedy in their lives. Talon almost died in the last book. Hes only there to be sure his daughter Emerald is settled and he's moving on because thats what he does. He's a lone wolf except he's a lion haha and has been for years. Rose suffers quietly...so lonely even if its by her choice as well to be separated from the pride. I have to say this wasnt a favorite but I didnt hate it. I dont feel we got what Talon and Rose deserved but hey you really cant blame the author in this sort of scenario. Characters will speak to you and tell you a story and sometimes it is what it is. I very much liked that we did get Talon and Rose's story and I cant wait for the next Tarian Pride book.

    This is the second book in the series and they should be read in order. This book is on the shorter side and focuses on Rose and Talon (Emerald’s dad). Both have had a mate before and didn’t think they would get another one. Talon is a rogue lion and his lion has been wanted to go but he has been staying make sure Emerald is settling in okay. Rose and Talon are drawn toward each other but will it be enough to get Talon’s lion to stay put? I read this book in one sitting and couldn’t put it down.

Joyce’s books and this one was no exception. I can’t say enough about her or her books. This book was a sweet romance but it still had its bumps. Rose doesn’t attach easily but when she does, she never let’s go even if the other person leaves her. She knows she is taking a risk on Talon but can’t help it. It was great getting to read more about Emerald and the girls as well. I can’t wait for the next book.

    Tarian Silver Lion is the second book in the New Tarian Pride series. The main characters are Rose who is Grim’s grandmother, and Talon who is Emerald’s dad. I enjoyed getting a story about Rose and Talon, especially since they were a little older and more mature. It was actually sweet how they were with each other and I was glad to see Rose find happiness. My only complaint is that I hate that the book wasn’t longer. I would have liked to have seen more of Rose and Talon working on her home or Tarian Silver Lion is the second book in the New Tarian Pride series.

I would have liked to have seen more of Rose and Talon working on her home or merely spending time together. There also could have been a little more interaction with the rest of the pride members which would have lengthened the story. I think this book is only a little over 100 pages and I just wanted more.

    Age is Like a Fine WineAs with all of TS Joyce's books, I had to read it all in one day. The characters reel you in. This one especially because it is about a couple who are older. My heart swelled as Rose realized that she still had a lot to give a man and that it was OK to let herself care. Talon had to learn that he could have a home and that the home that he needed was Rose. Like all of the characters in her books, Rose and Talon are perfectly flawed and perfect for each other.

A magnificent story. Two shifters who deserve the blessings of love. Slightly different flavor to this story than usual for this author, but welcomed all the same. Absolutely beautiful!

We meet booth this characters in the first book on this series. They were booth kidnapped and rescued, but not before Talon was dragged from a ATV. Rose help him through his recovery and they forged a bond. LOL moment when the Alpha realised his granny was having sex😉😂🤣😂Highly recommended

    TS Joyce at her best!I absolutely loved the love story of Rose and Talon. My heart hurt for the two of them. The strength the Rose portrayed that love would prevail should encourage strong women everywhere to stand by their man. I would recommend this book for anyone that believes in love and second chances, love conquers all. This book is certainly on my favorites list to read again.

Now Talon is feeling better and almost fully healed, when Rose needs help fixing her house up after the Old Tarian Pride kidnapped her. Rose feels safer with him around, but accepts as a rogue that he will eventually leave.....which would break her 💔. Loved this short love story between Rose and Talon and I look forward to Kannon next😀

So yes, I'm obsessive compulsive when it comes to this author's story line... I simply must read it right then and there and she never lets me down... The writing talent is beyond words... The covers never disappoint... If you haven't read her then what are you waiting for 😉 and if you have then you know it's a slam dunk...

My only complaint is it’s definitely short and so their histories with their mates and family lines aren’t really fleshed out. Can’t wait for Kannon next.

    I was soooo excited for this one and it didn't disappoint one bit. I loved how despite what life had thrown at her, Rose was still a strong, sweet woman. I didn't blame Talon for his thinking and actually thought that if he hadn't left he would have always felt restless and not known that she was where he needed to be. Excellent quick addition to this series and cannot wait for the next one.
