Tempting the Beast – Lora Leigh

Leigh, Lora. Tempting the Beast.(Stow, OH: Ellora’s Cave, 2003). ISBN: 1-84360-418-3.

Main Characters: Callan Lyons and Merinus Tyler

 

Related Works: This is one of Lora Leigh’s the Breeds Series. See Lora Leigh’s Breed Chronology. This series includes the following:

 

Description from book:

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.

My Thoughts:

I was so happy when I came home from work on Friday, October 18 and found a box with Tempting the Beast, Kiss of Heat, Jacob’s Faith and Soul Deep. I immediately sat down to read Tempting the Beast which is the first of the Breeds series books written by Lora Leigh. I wasn’t disappointed (with any of them)!

Merinus is a great female heroine. I thoroughly enjoyed her battle with her brothers and father over whether she would be able to go and find Callan. The game of cat and mouse that she and Callan played in the beginning of the story was quite fun too. Merinus is definitely after something from Callan – who is believed to be one of the only Breeds to have survived the raid on his lab. He, of course, is closely guarding the fact that several other members of his pride also survived. Merinus hopes to get Callan to go public with his story. Callan is resistant to her plan. However, the two cannot deny their attraction to each other. This shouldn’t be surprising since they do turn out to be each other’s mates. 

Anyway, I enjoyed this book tremendously. I was SO happy to finally read the first book in the series. This helped filled in quite a bit of the storyline. You can bet that I very quickly read the other three books that had come in the mail on Friday.
