In the Breeds series by Lora
Leigh, humans are altered before conception making them predators.
Cassandra Sinclair is a rare breed, with a mix of wolf, human, and
coyote. Her world is a mixture of being revered and being reviled by
others. She will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves, but
what happens when this CROSS
BREED finds her mate? A mate she will not forgive easily for his
Dog has known for years that Cassie is his mate and that she is
different from anyone else, even more, different than anyone could ever
guess. He has been keeping secrets from her and from others, not
wanting anyone to interfere in what he considers his duty. When their
mating causes her to lose so much that she knew, he does what he can
to prove he is worth it. But, when the big fish he is after offers him a
way to get to him, what Dog must do to Cassie may harm her and them
beyond all repair.
CROSS BREED is a steamy,
drama-filled paranormal romance the likes that only author Lora Leigh
can produce. Her characters might not be immediately liked but will
soon grow on you. I have to admit that I had a little trouble with a hero
named Dog, but after his background, it became a good name. The
situations between the Genetic Council and the Bureau of Breed Affairs
might be a little confusing, but Ms. Leigh added a note explaining this
world and that made it easier. Cassie and Dog went up in smoke every
time they were together and there was no denying the connection even
though others did try to interfere, this couple was meant to be. One of
the greatest moments for me was when Cassie went after Dog,
knocking him on his backside and holding a knife to his throat and Dog
just lay there laughing and claiming how beautiful she was. I guess you
have to read the book to understand the situation better but that to me
just personifies this couple's romance. I also loved the ending where
Dog gets to see Cassie's ghosts (who have been with her for years,
protecting and helping her for reasons that would come out later) and
hear them for the first time and that almost made me cry.
If you want an action-filled paranormal romance, that can be sweet or
raunchy then get your hands on CROSS BREED and enjoy Cassie and Dog's world.
The Breeds are humans altered before conception with the
DNA of the predators of the earth. But although they all
carry the genetic material of beasts within them, Cassandra
Sinclair stands apart. A unique mix of wolf, coyote and
human, she is revered by many--but preyed upon by others.
She is fiercely protected by her community...but no one
manages to stop her when she slips away one day to offer
her body in exchange for her sister's safety.
The man she succumbs to surprises her by unleashing her
inner animal in ways she never dreamed possible--and
provokes her deep, furious rage. To Cassie's shock, he is
the mate she has long awaited. She may never be able to
forgive his deception. Still, as dangerous enemies track
her, and as the threat of all-out war between Breeds and
the humans who despise them hovers in the air, they must
join forces and hold fast to each other.
But the passionate union between them holds a potential
that could change the world--and some will do anything to
