Book Description

Danger and desire becomes one in a sensual novella of the Breeds, the “highly erotic saga” (Fresh Fiction) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rule Breaker, Lawe’s Justice and Stygian’s Honor.

Lyra’s neighbor can’t be for real. A man who makes her hormones stand up and scream every time she sees him. And he’s breaking through her reserve to invade her dreams at night.

But Tarek Jordan is even more than he seems. A Breed Enforcer with a plan. First, find the Council Trainer he’s tracked to Fayetteville, Arkansas, and second, claim the woman next door as his own. She's fated to be his and his alone. He can feel it in his blood. Until the danger that has shadowed his life suddenly casts a darkness over Lyra's as well. Now Tarek knows that he can’t wait any longer to claim the woman his heart and soul burns for. He has to tell her who he is, what he is, and what he wants. And Lyra will have to accept him as he is, on his terms, and now. Her life depends on it.

The Breed Next Door originally appeared in Hot Spell.

The Breed Next Door by Lora Leigh is a short story revolving around Lyra and Tarek, the short story is well written and leaves you wanting a whole story based on these two characters.

Lyra has been giving Tarek hell every chance she gets ever since they became neighbors, she would like to think it's because he does things wrong not because every time she talks with him she gets hot. But now that someone has tried to break into her apartment and they were not the normal B&E robbers she's got even more questions about her savior, Tarek.

Tarek is on a mission, he's supposed to be looking for one of the lab scientists that got away. But for the past couple of months he hasn't found him, but when he saves Lyra from an attack at her house he realizes that the scientist is after her too.

The Breed Next Door is a fun, exciting read that will leave you wanting more

2.0 out of 5 stars Novella Lite August 10, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tortured brooding breed male on the hunt for Counsel conspirators moves in next door to plucky female with Breed sympathies. Some cute moments in the beginning when she rails at him for cutting his lawn wrong, and he is attractively vulnerable while longing for her baked goods, soon descend into routine sex and violence.

In order to fit this Breeds story into a novella length, Leigh surgically removed most of the story and all of the character development. I am not a stickler. The Breeds books are meant to be steamy and entertaining, not literature, and that's why I like them. However, it seems like Leigh set up a plot, then decided developing it/resolving conflicts took up too much space, so she settled for just leaving in a lot of hot sex.

I recommend skipping this one - even for compulsive Breed buyers - wait for the next (complete) book in her publishing schedule.

I was looking for Kindle stories by Lora Leigh that I might not have when I came across this one. I thought it sounded familar... because I already read it!

FYI - This story was in Hot Spell (Anthology).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great short story! January 27, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just another great read from Lora Leigh. I am just a great fan of the Feline Breed series. As a matter of fact Lora Leigh is my number one author and her Breed series is my number one series. I own every book and even though I love short stories I feel every breed deserved their own book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good "dirty" read February 19, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a fun frolic for a couple of hours. This book delivers what it promised- an eroctic read. I wish the storyline was a little more in depth. This was my first Lora Leigh, but will not be my last. Definitely not a story for the easily embarassed.
