Book Description

Mother Nature has a way of making the most unlikely couples 'fit'. And what could be more unlikely than a sassy, independent President's daughter who doesn't know when to keep her mouth shut and a loner Coyote Breed with a hunger for a cute rosebud mouth that he's determined to still.
The vote for Breed Law is coming down the pike. Kiowa's job is to watch Amanda, the President's daughter—look, but not touch. Just make sure the Goof Troop, the Secret Service detail assigned to protect her, do their job until the law is passed.

But when they don't and the bad guys move in to take her out, Kiowa reluctantly slips in to the rescue, snatching her away to safety. But she isn't going to come easy and it takes more than smooth talking to make her see his point of view.

For a man who's had nothing, Amanda Marion is food for the hunger that has tortured him, the reality to every dream Kiowa never dared believe in. What he feels for her is more than heat, more than love. She breathes life into his hardened heart, melting the icy chill that has protected him all his life, and touches a part of him that he thought had died—his soul. And now he'll kill anyone who tries to take her away from him.

But the one person he can't fight is Amanda, and when she wants to leave…

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes - no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

4.0 out of 5 stars I dare you to read this on public transport. 12 Jan. 2008
By Karen
The first half of this book is the usual straight-up smutty breed schtick. Lashings of hotness plus a high embarrassment factor because the main couple seem to do it in company. Although neither Simon nor Stephanie are likely to be in the least offended by anything they witness. But as a reader, I certainly felt like cringing. Which is ridiculous really because reading romances is all about the reader witnessing intimate acts between the main couple.

However. Suddenly at the half-way mark. Amazingly. I realised that I actually liked the main couple, Kiowa and Amanda. Her. Because she naturally protests at giving up what she thinks are her dreams of the future. While Kiowa tells her that she justs needs to adapt those dreams. And I like him because of what he said when he was eleven years old. `I have a soul, I always did.' After all the years of his grandfather telling him he had none. Also. Apart from being the daughter of a fictional president, Amanda is totally normal. Well. Sort of. A 24-yo virgin who knows she likes giving head.

In theory. Kiowa is an `evil Coyote breed' although he wasn't raised by the cruel scientists in the labs. Just had a completely loveless childhood courtesy of a cold grandfather. But like all the breed males, such experiences haven't made him bitter and twisted. With another author Kiowa could have become a mother-hating psycho-killer. But with this series I am secure in the knowledge that Breed males are generally very sociable...even Kiowa has friends. I liked Kiowa a lot. I totally felt the pain of his early days.

So basically. This novel is all about how Amanda particularly comes to terms with mating with Kiowa. And all that entails. Poor woman. Unfortunately Amanda also reveals that essentially she is tstl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coyote 17 Jan. 2010
On the storyline, there is not much more that I can add that has not already been mentioned by the previous reviewer.

I would only add that the name of the publisher gives away the type content to expect from "Ellora Cave", they publish really graphic sex scenes in all their books. I have never read a single book of theirs that did not have explicit scenes.

I enjoy Lora Leigh books and this one is no different from the others. Her stories are nearly always well written, imaginative and adult in content. Don't buy a Lora Leigh Novel and then be surprised that there is sex in the book...its never going to happen!

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh 11 May 2011
By Kelsey
I ordered and read this book based on Amazon reviews. I never thought that Amazon reviews would do me wrong...but they did. Big time! I've read a lot of romances but I've never read a romance with such blatant and repetitive crude language. In nearly every paragraph the words P*ssy and C*nt are repeated multiple times as the only description for the sexual intimacy between the two main characters. The author--who I'm convinced is really a man based on the language and plot, which I will get to in a minute--didn't seem to have a very diverse vocabulary.

The plot makes me believe the author has a grudge against women. The premise is that when the heroine (Amanda) gets kissed by the hero (Kiowa a coyote breed) a chemical invades her body and makes her go into heat for the hero. If she refuses to have sex with him her body will become increasingly uncomfortable until the point of debilitating pain. Only when she gives in and has sex with the Kiowa does the pain go away, only to start the process all over again. Also, if the Amanda is touched by another man besides Kiowa she feels excruciating pain, even if the other man is only trying to help her.

The amount of pain Amanda goes through throughout the book is disturbing. The lack of communication and intimate connection between the two main characters is irritating and unromantic. The hero really doesn't care about Amanda's pain throughout the story, and often threatens her when she doesn't cooperate. Plus, when Amanda is drugged into having sex with Kiowa for the first time she's a virgin! But she acts like a pro, and afterward doesn't mention it or even think about her drug induced lost virginity, which was more like rape since she was tied up at the time and out of her head.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Best of the Breeds!!" 30 Sept. 2007
By auntee - Published on
Coyote Breeds are thought to be the lowest of the Breeds, the genetically altered humans with the DNA of animals. Coyotes were bred to be unfeeling hunters and soldiers; merciless, with no souls or loyalties.

Kiowa, a Coyote Breed, had a horrific upbringing. He was abandoned by his young Native American mother who was kidnapped off the streets and forcibly inseminated with the coyote DNA. Raised by a grandfather who hated him and forced to live in a hidden mountain cabin in isolation, Kiowa led a bleak existence. He was constantly reminded of how he came to exist and was told often by his grandfather that he had "no soul" and that his mother didn't want him. His grandfather barely kept him alive, providing only the bare necessities of food and few creature comforts (books and TV, which he used to educate himself) and showing him absolutely no love.

By the time he was 14 he was totally on his own, forced to hide his true identity from the world and seek out a meager existence. But when Dash Sinclair (Elizabeth's Wolf) found him, his life changed drastically.

Amanda Marion was the daughter of the US President, a school teacher living on her own and loving her new found independence, and inexperienced in love (except for her extensive reading about it). When armed intruders attempted to kidnap her on Halloween night, it was Kiowa that came to her rescue. And when Kiowa kissed her (to shut her up, of course) uh-oh...there would be no turning back!

A very important law enabling the Breeds to enact a form of self-government is coming up for a vote in Congress, and it is very important to the survival of the Breeds that this law is passed. But anti-breed blood supremicists don't want this law passed; they want the Breeds extinct, so they hope to kidnap the President's daughter and use her to sway a "no" vote from the President. The Breeds now need to ensure that no harm comes to Amanda, and they have only a week to protect her from kidnappers before the law is voted on. But what happens in that week's time, and the feelings that develop between Kiowa and Amanda, is the basis for this story.

Kiowa, unloved for so long, told he had no soul and feeling undeserving of love, has never felt for anyone what he feels for Amanda. He can't explain it--he would protect her with his very life!

Amanda, stubborn and refusing to believe that what she feels for Kiowa is anything more than hormonal lust, at first tries to fight her attraction. True, they have scorching sexual chemistry, but is that all there is?

When Kiowa has a pivotal conversation with young Cassie, daughter of Dash and Elizabeth Sinclair, he learns that perhaps he is worthy of love, and maybe he can give Amanda what she needs.

I loved this Breeds story more than any of the others, and I've read most of them. This one was hot, hot, hot, and packs such an emotional punch, and that's what I found missing in some of the others. I really cared about Amanda and Kiowa (especially Kiowa) and I felt that he desperately deserved some happiness in his life. Although at first Kiowa and Amanda have trouble communicating beyound their "mating", once that is resolved they find out that they do have some common ground and want the same things out of life. This was a very satisfying read, and one that I could easily recommend--5 stars!
And check out that cover!!

P.S. Althogh this book can certainly stand on it's own, for you own reading enjoyment, I would suggest reading the 4 books that chronologically come before it: "Tempting the Beast", "The Man Within", "Elizabeth's Wolf", and "Kiss of Heat".

4.0 out of 5 stars Same formula, but good depth of character 20 July 2008
By Denise Whitcome - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Soul Deep is nothing new. It has the same basic formula as all the breed books, but this coyote breed had more depth of character than some of the wolf breeds that I wasn't very fond of.

It does have one of the hottest first lovescenes that I have ever read, though. My goodness!!! This book is definitely worth reading, if you like Lora Leigh, but just be warned that it is a very short book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just so so 28 Mar. 2009
By Readsalot - Published on
I expected a bit more from this one after reading all the hype in the reviews. Ms Leigh's more mainstream offers have touched on some serious emotional issues, esp. Dawn's awakening. So when I read comments that this one was a bit more touching than other offerings in the series I expected something more. I was disappointed. This was just so so. It was no more emotionally engaging than any of her other Ellora's Cave pre-mainstream stories, in fact I think she did a bit less character building.

Kiowa had the potential but it seems that there was no connection between his neglected childhood and the adult person that he became beyond the superficial. His authoritarian (bind em and spank em) dominant sexual nature fit with the assumptions of the coyote breeds' nature in general but there was no confirmation of that in the story or any indication of how his personal development would lead him to those types of sexual needs. Amanda's character was no different. There were so many unanswered questions and holes in her character that it left me flat. The simple fact of her being the president's daughter should have provided lots of opportunity for charactr development.

On the other hand, this story does provide some insight on how Breed law got passed and how the felines were able to find out so much about the mating process, etc.

As for the sexuality, it's Lora Leigh - nuff said. I do like a good "romantica" read so I tend to prefer steamier material. My only complaint is the amount of anal activity in some authors' works (LL usually has at least one such scene in her Ellora's Cave stories.) I find that disturbing/disgusting but otherwise...

All-in-all it was an OK read. I gave it 3 stars instead of 2 because I didn't dislike it - I just didn't like it. I can't say I'd recommend you spend your money on it; but if you like to know all of the details and behind-the-scenes facts about a series then you may want to check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Absolute favorite "Breed" Book 19 Dec. 2007
By BreedLover - Published on
Don't let those few nay sayers deter you from buying this book. This book can stand on its own but when read in chronological order with the previous 4 breeds book before it, this book packs a punch. The sex is HOTTTT in vinatage Laura Leigh style. I have a read all of Laura's books and she is at the top of my MUST READ lists for autoships...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Breed books and a Lora classic 12 Mar. 2008
By Bookworm - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is sexy, hot and it has a good story to back all the good sex up. Some people mentioned it is too short, granted, but it does not affect the story one bit. In fact, I think it helps it in a sense that it does not pile up too many unnecessary details.

The story has soul (no pun intended). The hero is hot, a suffering soul who does not want to admit he needs anyone, let alone that he has fallen in love with someone. All in all it is one of the best books Lora has written. I like her books but not all of them are winners, this one definitely is.
