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.

Tortured mercilessly in the Breed labs, Dawn's nightmare should have ended when her Pride escaped the evil Council and left the labs behind. But her torment continued afterwards, at the hands of a Pride brother she should have been able to trust, a Breed who would betray his entire Pride.

Years have passed since their escape from the labs and the discovery of the traitorous Breed. Dawn has grown strong, into a Breed Enforcer to be reckoned with, but is not without enduring pain. The torture she experienced has kept her from the Mate she found ten years earlier. But the Mating Heat grows unbearable for Dawn, and she is determined to do whatever it takes to claim Seth Lawrence as her Mate once and for all.

Seth has suffered too, although hormonally the Mating Heat is not as difficult for males as for females. But it is more than the Mating Heat that causes Seth's pain - his heart is breaking without the woman he loves, although he would do anything to prevent Dawn's pain - even if that means he must deny himself to prevent her nightmares from returning.

Nothing can prevent those nightmares from returning, both in Dawn's dreams and in the waking world. She'll need Seth more than ever to handle the horror she is about to face.

Just how many favorite books can I have in one series? If you had asked me before I read Dawn's Awakening which of Lora Leigh's Breeds books was my favorite, I would have debated between Tanner's Scheme and Elizabeth's Wolf, finally settling on a tie. With this new edition in her gripping saga of genetically manipulated people whose DNA is spliced with animal DNA, Dawn's Awakening has unexpectedly earned its place in my top three favorite Breeds stories.

Dawn Daniels is a cougar breed. Small and wiry, she was the runt of the lab and so therefore bore the brunt of the council soldiers' cruelty. Betrayed by a littermate, she doesn't trust easily, experiences nightmares and has tried to spend the last ten years healing from the horror of the labs in which she was born. Through it all, one thing in Dawn's life has been constant - the thought of her mate, Seth Lawrence.

Ten years after the breeds first introduced themselves to the world, Seth finds himself in limbo. While his desire for Dawn is all-consuming, he worries that her horrific past will prevent them from coming together. Seth knows that his physical needs are great - but hurting Dawn is not an option. He doesn't count on her tenacity as a mated female nor her newfound stubbornness.

Dawn and Seth cautiously explore their world together after years apart. Circling each other warily, they both maintain their secrets - secrets that become inconsequential when a real danger emerges threatening their tentative relationship. Surrounded by enforcers and searching for elusive answers, the lovers realize the unidentified danger is intent on destroying them - as well as destroying the dream they both just realized they had - of being together as only breed mates can be.

I first read Ms. Leigh's TEMPTING THE BEAST three years ago. She introduced her world of breeds and I was instantly hooked. I was also intrigued by the shy and timid runt, Dawn Daniels. Her sadness was evident and almost more than I could stand but I couldn't stop thinking about her. I wanted her healed, I wanted her unbroken, and I wanted her with Seth Lawrence. In true Lora Leigh erotic style, I got my wish.

What is a woman to do when her mate is trying to move on? Dawn Daniels discovers that to have Seth there is much she will have to face and resolve. By putting everything that happened in the labs deep in her memory, Dawn has grown into a controlled and respected member of the pride. However years ago Dawn discovered her mate only to have him leave her. Now years later he is in trouble, probably for helping the breeds, and Dawn is going to Seth on a three- fold mission. To protect him, find out who's trying to kill him and to claim him.

Seth Lawrence has wanted Dawn since the first time he saw her, but when faced with her past Seth left her, thinking it was for the best. He has tried to move on with his life, but when circumstances make it so he has to have a breed security team at his island that is no longer an option. Seth just wonders if he can handle having Dawn so close without touching her. Danger, death and Dawn's determination take the decision out of Seth's hands in one way and yet it gives him the strength he needs to help Dawn became the mate he wants and needs - even if he has to overrule her family and hurt Dawn emotionally to do so.

Out of all the original feline's breeds - Dawn is the last to have her story. I have been waiting for her ever since I met her the first time. Dawn's Awakening was everything and much more than I could have wished for. I knew, as did many of us that Seth and Dawn were supposed to be mates. I was unprepared for what had all happened in the years between the last time we saw Dawn and Seth. Ms. Leigh had me on the ropes in several places. I had tears in my eyes in at least two specific places.

Dawn's Awakening-Awesome!
I read it and loved it! This was definitely one of her best in the series. Dawn absolutely broke my heart and {{SIGH}} Seth is just damn sexy. I read the book in one sitting and could not put it down. My stomach hurts everytime Dawn's memories came back. I'm glad they finally got their HEA... Read More

The Insanity of the Series
I think as long as the series is interesting and believable to its readers and that there is a certain amount of closure to each conflict introduced in the series than it fine that a series can continue. Even though I know that the characters are not real I still enjoy reading about their lives... Read More

Finally, I've been waiting for this book.
I'm with you DW. I'm so glad she's gone back to the "original" Breeds characters and stories. I didn't enjoy MEGAN'S MARK or HARMONY'S WAY nearly as much as the previous Breeds books. They felt like a detour from the series I came to love. Perhaps she had to write those books to... Read More

Mine to possess
The only problem with this book is I read the next book teaser at the end first and was hooked. Problem is I like the ones that feature Psy main characters more than I do Shapeshifters. I'm not really getting either Clay or Tally, but Dorian and Ashaya -- yeah! And I'd kill for another Judd.

As of Styx's Storm, we still don't know for sure who the guy watching Cassie was. She's supposed to get her own story, but don't count on it being anytime soon, unfortunately. I'm dying to know who he is! My bet is on Dog though, but that may be wishful thinking :)
