To save innocent, young Storme Montague from the claws of Breed slave traders, Wolf Breed Styx is forced to claim her himself-on the condition that Storme will no longer be a virgin by night's end. And though Storme's defenses are up, Styx will free her-in ways she never expects.

Posted January 04, 2011 by Momof1 , NashvilleI don't know why I keep on paying money for these books. I guess there is that little part of me that keeps hoping that they will go back to the old days when even as I read and balked at the sex to story ratio I could still justify reading based on being intrigued by the story. Lora Leigh has really started to feel like Sherrilyn Kenyon to me. Her books are starting to merge into each other. I think maybe it is because she is writiing so many series at once that she doesn't have the time to dedicate to the stories like she used to.
This particular story got on my nerves because I felt like Storm was treated unfairly. Yes, before you start growling under your breathe, think about all that she had been through and what was expected of her, its like they just wanted her to forget everything she had seen her whole life. I was also quite disturbed by Hope's behavior as that is not in keeping with the character Hope had in her book or even in Faith's book. She would never stand for the abuse that Storme endured. As for jumping on Storme because she "disrespected" Wolfe- whatever, Leigh needs to re-read her own books before she writes new ones so she can get characters straight.
Ultimately what this book came down to was that outside of a few differences in details the storyline was the same as the last few and not as good as many of the first few. Sure there can be some hits and misses in the game but the quality of her writing and her plot development is steadily deteriorating. Unless I see a drastic improvment sometime soon she will go the way of Kenyon on my must read list- not on it.
I always have a fantasy of locking my favourite writers in my basement so they can churn stories out non-stop. Kresley Cole and JR ward take way too long to release new books for example but I KNOW that they will be good. So Leigh, please, if you have to take a few months longer to get the next one out, take it. I'll wait the 120 extra days if it means I will be satisfied in the end.
2 . Staying true to form its a good read.
Posted October 21, 2010 by Elisabeth , RiversideIn this case ...one should never judge the "back" of the book. It was a good book to read and yes I am already telling friends. It was not what it leads you to think and YES, I am ok with that. Can't wait till the Ghost team starts to find their mates or Jonas's brother finds his. Got my fingers crossed.
3 . Has this series jumped the shark?
Posted October 12, 2010 by STyler , Austin, TXI'm getting tired of waiting for another good book from Lora Leigh. Granted, Styx's Storm was better than Lion's Heat, but it pretty much had to be. But her books get shorter and shorter, while still costing the same, and the emotional element that sold the whole concept of being 'in heat' has suffered in that shortening. Yes, I think the world of the Breeds is an interesting one, and I understand that the romance element can't be the whole story - but this book was a disappointment. With two in a row not hitting the mark, Ms.Leigh gets one more read out of me before I dump this series and just go re-read Tanner's Scheme, which to my mind was the best of this series so far.
4 . Still Waiting
Posted October 07, 2010 by Jo , LAI consider LL an auto-buy, but i just haven't been as engaged in the past few stories as i was by her older ones. Styx n Storme's story was interesting enough but i just didn't really *feel* the conflict between the two. They have sex often enough (no conflict there!) but they never had that moment that makes you root for the characters to get together.
I'm sure i'll buy her next book, but as i said in the description - i'm still waiting.
