"A True Master of the Written Erotic Romance"
"Sinfully sensual and sexual, the Breeds are definitely a breed apart."
"When I'm in the mood for a steamy romance, I read Lora Leigh." -- Angela Knight
About the Author

Most days, Lora can be found in front of her computer weaving daydreams while sipping the ambrosia of the gods, also known as coffee. When not writing, thinking about writing, or plotting what to write, Lora, a Kentucky native, enjoys gardening, fishing, and hiking with her husband and children.

I don't normally include a summary of the story in my reviews but as Amazon's is so fundamentally wrong I thought it might help! Assuming you know the mythology of the Breeds world, basically Anya works with Del Rey (an escaped Coyote Breed) to help free others in the lab where she grows up. She feels he betrays her when he injures her father when they finally attack the lab (although later she discovers he did this so they wouldn't be thought as collaborators and killed). As a result when the old Leigh favourite mating drama happens, she kicks Del Rey to the curb because of the betrayal. 6 months on and they're trying to live separate lives (and failing pretty miserably). The main story is about how two highly intelligent, stubborn and pretty arrogant people try to find a way to gel together when their fundamental basis for a relationship is under question.
The beauty in this story as with most of the Breed novels is not the eroticism - although Leigh's writing is always a good way to keep you warm on a cold night! :) but in characterisation. Del Rey is the epitome of an a love hate character. Leigh writes him so flawed, with an over abundance of pride and totally isolated - making decisions with good intentions but without consulting anyone else - and completely wrong as a result. In essence he's Mr Darcy! And Anya makes a credible Elizabeth Bennet - she's feisty, independent and trying to find her niche in the world. Above all she's likeable and most importantly normal!
I've massively oversimplified and am sure to be struck by lightning for comparing an erotic romance to the classic Pride and Prejudice, but for me that's what Leigh is trying to do in a way. She's trying to create a story that doesn't hang on some background mythology but is entirely about characters trying to find their way around each other. This does that and very well.
So far I've not found a Breed novel I don't enjoy - which is more than I can say for some of Leigh's other series - this is a great example and if you've not read them before a good place to start - enjoy!
The story came together very well, I thoroughly enjoyed the in-depth storyline and the other characters - especially the Russian coyotes - made this book really enjoyable.
Despite not reading any of the earlier books in this series I followed this one easily so don't be put off by the fact that it is at least 12 books in or something.
I would say that if you are not comfortable with very intense and detailed sexual scenes then this is not the book for you (I've read loads of books in this genre and I have to say this is by far the most explicit that I've come across).
This is the best book I've read in ages and I highly recommend it!
What is great about this book is that the heroin is not just one of the run of the mill slim and sexy steriotypical characters, no a couple of times she was described as round and being curvy.
This is about a girl that starts of on path of no-return at 16 and while growing into a woman not only have to deal with the outfall of it, but also with betrayal and animalistic hormones. The alpha male is pure egostistical and domineering homosapien and dim until the end, even though the author does try to make him look like the hero. To me Anya was the heroin. Near the end I found the book so emotional that I had to put the book down.
Though there was a couple of aspects that I found a bit off putting. I know sex sells, but somehow I think that some of scenes where just a bit too crudely described. Maybe take a bit of Nora Roberts and write a good scene without the crude words. To me it felt a bit like wham-bam-thank-you-mam. And that is the reason I gave this a 4 star.
