Rienced in the Breed aboratories years ago although exactly how many years ago is highly in uestion as it was seven in Tempting the Beast and eleven in Kiss of Heat I understood why she initially fought her desire for Kane even though she was in the throes of a painful mating heat She was simply trying to protect her heart from being broken again and was also trying to protect Kane since no one knew how a man would react to the Breed mating hormone Still I felt that Ms Leigh could have expressed the emotional impact on both of these characters a ittle deeply As written I felt ike she was telling than showing so I never fully connected with Kane and Sherra in the way I had hopedAlthough I realize it s a Lora Leigh trademark the fact that Kane and Sherra spent a Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World lot of time sniping at and arguing with each other didn t help matters for me and it wasn t just the hero and heroine who were engaging in this type of behavior either Nearly everyone in the book even the women seemed constantly angry with someone grunting growling yelling snarling or participating in general alpha posturing every couple of paragraphs I could definitely see how someone could get completely smashed if they played a drinking game while reading this book and uite frankly it might have been enjoyable that way I also couldn t help but roll my eyes at the idea of the hero walking around aroused nearly 247 I know it was the mating hormone causing it but I couldn t stop myself from thinking about how with him being a normal human male this would constitute a major medical issue Not to mention he didn t seem all that concerned about hiding it either The happyittle event at the end was just a bit too easy and convenient for my taste tooWith Kiss of Heat being primarily about Sherra going through the mating heat and trying to come to terms with Kane being back in her ife and her permanent mate ots of steamy Dump Truck Trouble/Lets Build a Doghouse! love scenes were definitely expected and in that respect I wasn t disappointed Lora Leigh certainly knows how to write blistering hotove scenes that are sure to Sometime After Midnight leave the reader in need of a cold shower or ready to attack their own mate and this book was no exception These parts helped to make the story enjoyable and were aittle sweet treat for my mind However with the previous books in the series the red hot Stop Inflammation Now!: A Step-By-Step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation--The Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related Conditions lovin turned my brain sufficiently mushy enough to almost forget some of the other story weaknesses but in this case I think there were a few too many deficiencies for mere steam to overcome I just found myself thinking about all missing pieces and uestions I had that weren t being answered rather than enjoying the heatTimeine wise Kiss of Heat takes place immediately following The Man Within and simultaneously with the Eyes Behind the Lines: L Company Rangers in Vietnam, 1969 latter part of Elizabeth s Wolf As such the Breeds are still fighting against threats and attacks from outsiders at their compound and Cassie theittle Wolf Breed girl from Elizabeth s Wolf is involved in the story She is pretty much the same as before but I have to say that I m still slightly off put by her occasionally manipulative nature Callan and Merinus Tempting the Beast and Taber and Roni The Man Within also play significant roles as do some of the characters who will get
Their Own Books In The own books in the Tanner Tanner s Scheme Mercury Mercury s War Cabal Bengal s Heart and Jonas Lion s Heat The School Dazed latter two were introduced in this book and Dawn and Seth Dawn s Awakening had their first scenes together I m intrigued by this pairing but considering that Dawn experienced something similar to if not worse than Sherra did in theabs I felt ike Seth s overtly sexual overtures toward Dawn were a ittle bit much Still overtly sexual overtures toward Dawn were a Chinese Fairy Tales Fantasies: Folio Society Edition little bit much Still ve heard that their book is one of the best in the series so I mooking forward to eventually reading it and hope that it has better character and plot development than Kiss of Heat did In spite of my frustrations with it Kiss of Heat was a worthwhile read but it Old Haunts left me with a half full feelingike The Whole Story Simply Wasn T Told Anyone Who Can whole story simply wasn t told Anyone who can their brain off ong enough to overlook that will probably enjoy it much than I did Even though this was probably my east favorite book in the Breed series that I ve read to date I m sure I Cooking for Company: All the Recipes You Need for Simple, Elegant Entertaining at Home ll continue on The whole Breed concept is an intriguing albeit rather underdeveloped one at this point but if nothing else Il know that there l be some hot sex to console me in the event of a disappointing plotNote For the most part the sexual content reads much ike a super steamy mainstream romance but there is one brief moment of anal play with fingers There is also a scene in which two characters not the hero or heroine are caught in the aftermath of a menage a trois Kane is a warrior and protector to Sherra When he thought she was dead he felt apart of himself had died Sherra is a Feline Breed She marked Kane on their one night together a decade ago It will take a kiss to release the mating hormone and bond them for My Wifes Affair life Lora Leigh really takes this story in a differentenough directionto keep the series interesting and not just aboutoads of hot sex You get to see how much cruelty is dealt to the Breeds by the Council Sherra tries to Dîwana Jan let Kane use her for sex for mating with no emotional connection But Kane would rather suffer physically than feel only partially connected to his mate I reallyike the ayers of friends both human and Breed and the growth of knowing about the Council and other Bree Love this book Sherra is so hurt by her past that she guards her future with a gun Kane is from her past but is definitely part of her future After earning what happened to Sherra Kane is determined than ever to make Sherra his mate forever Sherra is holding on to her painful past so hard that she s not only killing herself but the possibilty of Kane healing her heart that has been seriously tornI recommend that you read this book but not before you read the first book Tempting the Beast Callan Lyons is an animal ol.

On was marvelously done Kane remained true to himself consistent with the image he s maintained since the first book the ittle digs were still there even venomous at the beginning dissolving into playful banter as the story progressed Ms Leigh has truly created a wonderful character He s strong determined to protect everything and everyone he cares for even if they don t want him to capable of the deepest The Curious Cases of Cyriack Skinner Grey love and most seething anger but when his control finally breaks he s still gentle still protective reproachful toward himself than anyone elseHis feelings toward Sherra were almost palpable utterly bitter sweet in their intensity and desperation and the reader coulditerally feel how her continual refusals bit into him Yet he still persevered wanting to help wanting to comfort her make her happyAbsolutely beautifulSherra was also wonderfully portrayed So stubborn to shake her silly so utterly sad to cry with her so resentful yet desperate to grasp at anything she could so scared and scarred and in need of comfort and Itsuka love I forgot every hurtful word she hurled at Kane at the same time I wanted to slap her for being such a stubborn hellcat The inner scars ran deep the protective barriers around her were too thick to high yet theyiterally crumbled with every scene giving in under Kane s sensual Mom, They're Teasing Me: Helping Your Child Solve Social Problems loving assaultBut she still continued with her silly stubbornness until it was almost tooate until at ast she was woman enough to admit at her failings and brave enough to take a huge eap of faith from the proverbial cliffKane and Sherra s ove story was such an emotional roller coaster everything paled in comparison The supporting cast though uite a massive body count did their job marvelously keeping in the back etting the two of them shine occasionally providing a valuable insight or word of wisdom though Sherra refused to isted to reason almost to the endAnother hidden gem of this story were Seth and Dawn I went to check the blurbs of the next books in the series and I got very very giddy huge grinI d definitely recommend this book to every single fan of paranormal romance not just the Breed and Leigh fans although you might consider reading the series from the beginning to get acuainted with the Breed history the characters and their relationship and interactions with each other Though it could definitely be read as a standalone the general details are explained it could prove a ittle difficult to follow for a noviceA definite keeper if there was one I was disappointed with this one and after high hopes too with this couple 1 Not much of any side story besides the mating I need story No Strings Attached line2 Just not feeling theove connection with these two much Fancy Strut like they didn t for each other most of the book She had to be mean to him to protect him from the effects of the heat and after he s finally offered the chance to sleep over he couldn t because she doesn tet him touch her what he couldn t snuggle and break her in nicely 3 Fact Discrepancies Roni s hair was blond now brown and he was carrying his mate upstairs to their room huh said it was on the bottom floor plus a Northern California: A History and Guide - From Napa to Eureka lot of wrong word usage or extra and repeat words4 I am glad this couple finally worked it out eyeroll I don t think I have ever read a eyeroll worthy book The phrase baby was used so many times I think I hurt my eye muscles from rolling my eyes so many times It was just friggen insane The main characters were uite annoying and growled as much as the maleead said baby Also if you are running out of ways to describe horniness do not use the phrase My cock is on fire I will Unbreathed Memories laugh for 10 minutes straight and consider putting it on a t shirt Reviewed for THC Reviews35 stars Now that I ve read four of Lora Leigh s books I ve come to the conclusion that in order to truly enjoy them one has toeave their brain at the door and not think about the plots too much Unfortunately being the cerebral person that I am that can be very difficult and I end up finding annoying discrepancies and worse yet huge plot holes The author gave just enough backstory on Kane and Sherra in the two previous Feline Breeds books Tempting the Beast and The Man Within to really whet my appetite for I desperately wanted to know exactly how it was that Kane and Sherra met while she was in the ab and why she was able to accept him as her over and mate after the traumatic experience of numerous rapes I also wanted to know how it was
that Kane escaped and why he wasn t able to take Sherra with him when he did butKane escaped and why he wasn t able to take Sherra with him when he did but my uestions were not to be answered by reading Kiss of Heat In fact I didn t really Graduates in Wonderland: The International Misadventures of Two (Almost) Adults learn anything new about Kane and Sherra that hadn t already been told in the previous novels I even wondered if I was forgetting some details and went back to skim those two books to no avail so I guess I was meant to simply accept their relationship for what it was andeave it at that which as I ve already mentioned is easier said than done For some reason Lora Leigh decided to begin Kiss of Heat with a prologue that was basically a re written and expanded version of a scene straight out of Tempting the Beast when I thought it would have been effective to take readers back even further to Kane and Sherra s meeting in the A Sally Lockhart Mystery 2 lab Even though I badly wanted character development for Kane and Sherra they were still fairlyikable characters I can t say that I had been drawn to Kane very much in the previous books because he was portrayed as an extreme alpha who was every bit as dominant as some of the Breed men and he started this book with that same intense personality At first he was still a bit too much for me to take but as the story
