Caged Lions Never Roar

A sweet romance for the animal lover…

An Anglican priest, an exotic dancer, and two neglected African lions. These are the cast of characters that make up Caged Lions Never Roar.

David O’Malley is a former Minor League baseball pitcher turned priest who is fed up with the hypocrisy and pettiness of organized religion. He dreams of becoming a baseball announcer.

Hannah Cohen is a stripper who feels degraded by her profession. She dreams of becoming a writer.

David and Hannah fall in love when they join forces to save two abused lions from a roadside zoo. But when Hannah’s profession becomes known, the Church orders David to end his relationship with her.

Will David choose passion or the priesthood? Can love be a gateway to freedom for two people who are both imprisoned by loneliness?

Caged Lions Never Roar is a sweet romance about finding freedom through unconditional love. If you enjoyed the film versions of Silver Linings Playbook and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, you will enjoy this book.

It is a book for the hopeless romantic. Cynics need not apply. It will get into your heart, your soul and maybe even into your tears. And leave you with a fondness for tiny Apple Head Chihuahuas and craving an egg salad sandwich on rye.
