`Lion's Heat' starts with a bang; Jonas Wyatt, the Director of the Bureau of Breed Affairs, the lion who's story we have been waiting for for so long, meets his mate. His mate, Rachel Broen, also happens to be his new personal assistant. Rachel is pregnant with her ex-boyfriend's child, but that does nothing to affect Jonas' love. Jump forward several months, and Brandenmore, a geneticist who has tortured and experimented on Breeds, threatens Amber, Rachel's daughter. Jonas brings his mate and her child to the safety of Sanctuary, and little else happens until the exciting conclusion of the book.
The Breeds are one of the most interesting, intricate series out there, which keeps readers coming back again and again. To keep building a world an author must drop clues about characters and future puzzles, which provides a strong background for upcoming books and keeps readers engaged. Leigh does this fantastically, and `Lion's Heat' is no exception. The flip-side to dropping hints is that once the author reaches the book involving a particular character or puzzle, they must reveal the details, and in `Lion's Heat' Leigh almost completely fails to do that.Read more ›
Brandenmore is the evil scientist who happens to be the worst nightmare enemy of the Breeds. He knows that the aging process practically stops once a mating has taken place. It happens to human and Breed alike. He is fanatical in his efforts to come up with an anti-aging serum. Now he has kidnapped Amber, the 4 month old baby of Rachel Broen the assistant to Jonas Wyatt, Director of the Bureau of Breed Affairs. The moment Rachel walked into his office Jonas knew she was the one woman in the world intended to be his mate. Unfortunately for Jonas, Rachel hasn't shown any interest in him at all. Now the only important thing is to get Amber back before Brandenmore does something unspeakable to her.
This is what I waited all this time for? As I began to open this book I had a really strong desire to write a list of what I was afraid would be in the book based on the last many Breed books in this series. I did not write that list. I should have because I would have been right. How sad! To those of us who have been with the Breeds series from the beginning the story featuring Jonas was supposed to be something special. Sorry, didn't happen here.
How many times now have we been through the dance/party/political gathering/ which featured THE DRESS which was chosen by the man to be worn by the female who didn't want to attend the party? How many times was he so aroused by the sight of her in that dress that he satisfied HER sexual frustration (whether or not she was feeling sexually frustrated) but not his own? And she always let him? How many times have we been through the exact same sex scenes but just changed the names of the two people? How many times for a male to say I.Love.You.I.Live.For.Read more ›
But what do we get? The same thing, mating heat, boy and girl worrying about why they are attracted to each other. Yuch!!!! Be glad you have such a good reason for getting it on and dive right in. That's what I would do. To know he would be faithful and devoted and I would be the same, far outweigh my fear that it is induced by a virus. We are compatible, that's more than I can say about most people who date out there.
Lora Leigh is an excellent author, look at some of her other novels and you will see. But she doesn't seem to take the time to write a good story with these romances. Rachel is a good character, but she is pregnant with another man's baby!! Was she raped? Was she forced to spit out her birthcontrol pill? She works for Jonas and he has the hots for her from the beginning, but he fights the heat and bonds with the unborn baby. I just felt Jonas deserved a great woman who would recogonize her worth and know that she could and would be whatever he needed to balance the hardness he is forced to show in his battle for the breeds. In other words a unique woman not a cookie cutter woman with low morals and very little self esteem.
I have loved the premise of these stories all along. I really try to understand where they are coming from and how hard they fight to be as human as they can. In some instances more than human. But book after book it is always the fighting to get their mate to accept them.Read more ›
