Throwback Thursday - Tempting the Beast
Author: Lora Leigh
First Published on November 24th 2003 by Ellora's Cave
Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment. One of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the "mating frenzy" locks them into a battle of sexual heat there is no escape from.
Deception, blood, and the evil Genetics Council are hot on their trail. Callan will use his strength to try and save them both...and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.
I am a big fan of Lora Leigh's Nauti and Seals series, but I had yet to try her Breeds series. Tempting the Beast is the first. While I enjoyed the book, I was hoping for a bit more. I liked Callan and Merinus. I thought they had great chemistry together and I was happy for their HEA. The love scenes were definitely steamy. The story of genetically altered humans is a great premise. This first story was a good foundation, but it left me with a lot of questions about the pride and lab days. I am hoping that those are answered in the sequels.
I recommend this book to Lora Leigh fans. If you haven't tried it, pick it up. I know I'm going to be seeking out the other books in the series.
