Romance Paranormal

Katy Chavos spent eight years getting over Dane Vanderale. Going from a misfit café waitress to the managerial analyst for the Breed’s Tech-Corp wasn’t easy but she is finally at peace. Only she has carried DANE’S MARK for all this time and now she is back to face the man who rejected her.

Dane is a man of secrets. He is a breed but a hybrid and that makes him stronger and primal and has spent his life hiding it. He felt it best to reject her and hide what Katy meant to him. But now something is different, and he isn’t sure he can continue to protect her or himself from what his heart wants.

DANE’S MARK is a fast-paced, steamy, amazing read. Katy and Dane have a very frustrating, heartbreaking romance and it is only author Lora Leigh who could come up with this twisted paranormal love story. And make things come out right for all the romance fans.

For those new to the Breeds series: It was decades ago that in the search for the ultimate warrior animal DNA was injected into human embryos. As usual, this new breed has been tortured and feared and the later addition of cross breeds who had it even worse.

Katy doesn’t know exactly what she might be, and the truth almost comes too late. However because she doesn’t know the truth of her background, even she does not know the danger of Dane’s rejection of her could cause. Finally, Dane does what he must to save her but, of course, it is a romance and must have HEA.

The world and characters found in DANE’S MARK are exceptionally well fleshed out and somehow realistic. There are several secrets and misunderstandings that crop up and must be dealt with and all of them are done in a well-thought-out manner. Characters from past Breeds books that are loved and maybe some that are feared appear in DANE’S MARK as the danger and intrigue flow from page to page in this exciting read.

If you have missed Ms. Leigh’s Breeds series (the last offering was Cross Breed released in 2018) then you will love getting your hands on DANE’S MARK.

SUMMARY

A new kind of Breed is faced with what happens when destiny and desire collide in the latest novel in the highly charged series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh.
 
A decade ago Katy Chavos was a proud misfit who had her heart broken, crushed by a man who drew her close with one breath and pulled away the next. He left a mark she’s done everything in her power to erase. But when Katy’s job brings her back to the hometown she couldn’t wait to escape, seeing Dane again awakens something inside her that won’t be tamed....
 
Dane Vanderale isn’t like other Breeds. As a hybrid he’s stronger, more primal, and more determined to hide it. He’s also certain that Katy is not his mate—not that that stops him from wanting her with every part of his soul. He knows he hurt her deeply and he intends to make things right, but she is dead set on keeping him at arm’s length.
 
Despite their painful history, Katy can’t deny the intense attraction she still feels for Dane. And before long, it will be impossible for either to deny the truth that has been in front of them all along....
