More About the Author

Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared. Lora's family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora's life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.
She can often be found daydreaming and plotting and planning with the varied characters that fill her imagination when she isn't planning her flower gardens, watching the horses romp outside her home, or spending time with the family and pets she fills her life with. Writing is her passion, her peace, and her lifeline. She hopes you enjoy the stories, and that you visit her website often for updates and news on characters and upcoming books

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and intense 7 Jan 2009
By Voracious for Books VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my new favourite, in this series. It not only surpasses the best of the earlier books, but it perfectly showcases the skills of the author.

I've read the whole series right from the beginning, when they were only available as ebooks on the EC website. I've owned this book less than one week and read it twice already. Gloria 'Ria' Rodrigues is sent to Sanctuary to find a traitor/s. She instantly drawn to Mercury who everyone knows was mated, and his mate was killed. Mecury is the rare breed who is physically closer to the animal (lion) than other breeds. Ria doesn't want to get involved with him; she's not his mate and will only ever be second-best, and end up with her heart broken. But unbeknown to them both the beast within Mercury is waking up from a long sleep.

This book features a breed who is both intensely male and vulnerable; which makes him especially appealing. I loved the banter between Mercury and Ria. I found there was an emotional intensity in this novel that really got to me. Read this and you'll be dabbing your eyes one minute, and fanning yourself the next. When you combine the great story, and depth of characterisation with Leigh's trademark 'heat', then this book can't be more highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mercury at last 8 Dec 2008
By suz
Format:Mass Market Paperback
He's appeared as a cameo in so many of the other 'breed' books so it was great to see him get his own story. Hot and steamy with a big twist in the tail - where does she get all her ideas?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best yet 27 Nov 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It was worth the wait. Great new title by Lora with good strong characters and a fantastic story line, with fab twist at the end. Unputdownable. So lock the doors turn off the phone settle down and enjoy, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 8 Jun 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another good installment in this series.
I liked that the mating heat didn't kick in for quite a while, so the attraction was unforced (a slightly uneasy element of some of the earlier stories for me), and liked that Ria was such a strong and capable character, eminently capable of dealing with all the male Breeds.
The underlying story is moving on nicely, and I'm still waiting for Jonas to get his comeuppance!
This totally held my attention, I've read it several times already, will read it again, have read some of the earlier ones on the strength of this one, and will continue to buy this series and look out for the early books that rarely appear over here.

5.0 out of 5 stars must read 26 Aug 2011
By jacqui
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed many of Lora Leigh books but this is my favorite. I found myself in tears for Ria and laughing out loud for no apparent reason which my children thought I'd gone mad. I really enjoyed this book the best one yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it ... 21 Feb 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've been reading the 'breed series' and couldnt wait for Merc to have his own story. It doesn't disappoint and this is my fav story in the entire series (I hav 4 books left to read), Merc is so vunerable so to see his barriers come down with Ria was a joy to see unfold as well as amusing. Their love story leaves you breathless & I have to say im very envious, the underlying story was better constructed than in some of the other books although 'the mating heat' was just as hot. Loved it cant wait for Rule & Law to have their turn in the spotlight, what fantastic names Law Justice, Rule Breaker & Mercury Warrant you just know they are gnna be so hot <3. Keep them comming I have Jonas' outing on pre-order I enjoy this series so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars! Nuff said. 2 Oct 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I seem to be the last to jump onto Lora Leigh's bandwagon and although I read a lot, I never take the time to write reviews...until now! I have to say that this woman has an imagination that leaves me amazed....I have whizzed through the entire BREED SERIES in just three days and this one is the best of all. Every fan knows LL is more than good with the HOT scenes, but this particular book has a different edge as well...I found the plot so solid, the emotion searing and the 'intimate' moments just off the charts. If in doubt just use the 'one click button'. BUY...BUY...BUY and curl up in a warm blanket with lots of supplies as you won't move until you've finished this one!
