Author Samantha Allard

This mouse is about to receive the lion's share of adventure…

Aubrey Taylor dreamed of becoming an international superspy, but her parents warned that a mouse shifter wasn't meant for such risky professions. Instead, she became a librarian for the Furry United Coalition Newbie Academy, though she never dreamed she'd receive a call that would see her off on the experience of a lifetime.

Jackson Holt, lion shifter and famed FUC agent is facing a foe more powerful than any FUC enemy… his mother. She wants her alpha son to assume his position as leader of their pride, but Jackson doesn't want any of it. He wants to save the world, one FUC mission at a time.

When he swings by the academy to thank Aubrey for her assistance on a case, he inadvertently brings danger to her door. Between shots fired, jaguar assassins, and a lioness mother who will never accept her son with a mouse, Jackson has his work cut out for him.

Can this mouse remove the lion's thorn, or will she scurry back to her quiet life at the Academy?

The Lion and the Mouse is a Furry United Coalition Newbie Academy (FUCN'A) book, set in Eve Langlais' EveL Worlds

Official published review:

Quiet as a mouse

What an absolutely adorable love story! It has all the snarky crankiness from the females and the alpha dominance that I have come to expect out of the FUC Academy with its own flair for the dramatic. I love how the mouse is so much more than she seems and more than willing to stand up for what she wants most. The backgrounds of these two are so drastically different and yet they just fit perfectly. The author kept the intensity high with the action and danger, and enough family drama to celebrate a holiday. This book was a wonderful addition to the collection, and I look forward to seeing what this author pens next.

5 stars


Samantha Allard has always wanted to be a writer. She spent her teenage years reading books and scribbling notes on napkins. Now she’s older, perhaps not any wiser, and getting her stories published. Young adult, steampunk or fantasy. The genre doesn’t matter as long as the story is told.

She can be found in her office most days. Others she trapped at the dreaded day job.
