About Cassie...
It's really too soon to tease, but I'm getting so many emails, and all the love and intrest in Cassie prompts me to tease just a little bit.
Now, Cassie is only nineteen, so understand, she has a little growing up to do before she can actually deal with her mate.
Yes, her mate has whispered to me. A breed has claimed her. But this has happened before and the heroine has firmly denied him, so I'm not giving away the secret just yet.
Let's say this.
He's very special.
He's a breed with qualities, and with certain gifts that it will take a very extraordinary heroine to deal with.
He's a breed that knows himself too well, and though he wants to protect her from himself, a part of himself is incredibly selfish when it comes to her.
He's a breed that doesn't believe any part of him is a man.
He's a breed that can endanger her, and he knows he has to be patient right now, he has to be careful.
Cassie's book is planned, and is slowly being plotted.
Cassie needs to grow up a bit, she needs a bit more strength under her belt, and she needs to show Dash she's a woman not a child before he will ever be able to allow her mate to live once he learns who it is.
Letting go isn't going to be easy for the father. He knows her weaknesses, her nightmares. Nightmares that you will begin glimpsing soon.
Please be patient. Cassie is part of an overall idea that is slowly developing.
I can't write Cassie, until other parts have released. Styx's Storme is a very important part of Cassie's growth experience. It's also an important part of Dane's upcoming story. Though his story too is still a little bit away.
I have so far 25 Breed books still to go, and more characters just keep popping up.
Dog, Mutt and Mongrel.
Lawe and Rule
Mordecai
Chimera
Shiloh
Simon
Ely, Ice and Jackal
I'm getting there. LOL
A couple of breed ghosts that you meet in Lion's Heat.
Diana, who you meet in Lions Heat.
So many breeds are coming.

I hope you continue to enjoy reading them.

Wow!! Now I'm desperate to read Cassie's book hahaha! Can't for the next release, I LOVE your books!

TigMode said...

Twenty five MORE?!?!?

I LOVE YOU! This is my favorite series so you just made my day and then some!

Booklover1335 said...

I can't wait for Cassie's book, next to Jonas she is one character that has always intrigued me. I can't wait to find out who her mate is...it's a delicious tease and will keep us all guessing :)

Thanks for the insight!

Veronica Fields Johnson said...

I am a big fan of Lawe and Rule and can't wait for thier stories to come out! I love sweet Cassie and it sounds like her story will be one to read! Question is Jackal and Ely ever going to get together or is her mate Brim Stone?

Danielle said...

I have been anticipating Cassie's story for a long time now, i.e since Dawn's Awakening... I can't wait!!! Can you give me just a little hint, is Cassie's mate the breed who snuck into her hospital room in Dawn's Awakening? Yes, no or a teasing maybe? I love the Breed Series and I'm really happy to see that Lion's Heat in not the end. But 25 other books, wow...

AlabamaGirl said...

OMG...you are such a tease...please keep teasing us...LOL. Brenda :)

Daniela said...

I jsut want to say...
Thank you so very much for this world you have created!
You are amazing!!!!!!!
this is such a complex and diverse world and...HOW do you keep all the information together!?!?!?!?!?
I can't even keep up!!!
Thank you, thank you!!!

Thanks for the little (and I mean little...grrr) tid-bit about Cassie! ;-)

liz said...

25 MORE BOOKS!!!! I am literally dancing around the room in glee, you've made my day!!, and thanks for the tease about cassie, I'm so happy she's got a mate (can't wait to find out who it is)

angela said...

I have a big smile just knowing there are 25 more to come! Awesome! Cassie's book is most anticipated (that little sneak in Dawn's Awakwning has bitten us all ) but for me, Dane's is too. I cant wait to see his story.

AlabamaGirl said...

I absolutely agree, so want to read Dane's story... He is such a tease too. And I believe his mate will live upto and past his expectations. And I will also say, so glad to hear you have at least 25 more books to come; but my guess is that you will be adding to that number as time goes by...lol. You are such an amazing writing and as someone else said, I bow to you...YOU ARE THE WOMAN!

Mrs. Anderson said...

Fabulous! I was so happy when "Lion's Heat" was released on my birthday - it was the most awesome present! :) Looking forward to reading Cassie's story and all the others.... Lawe and Rule especially. I've read all the other 'Breed' books and each one just gets better and better! I second another commenter in saying "YOU ARE THE WOMAN!" :)

Sayblee09 said...

I love the Breed world!
I have been dying for Cassie's story since Dawn's Awakening and cannot wait for you to write it! Understandably she has a bit if growing up to do, but I am still excited!

I hope Dane's story is soon, he is so sad without Harmony...

LadyLesa said...

Lora, you're an incredible writer!! Good things come to those who wait--and I will wait for your other Breeds stories. Please know that Lion's Heat was more than I ever dreamed of for Jonas.

firewoman55 said...

Did I miss something - I've read all the Breed series, most of them more than once, and I don't remember any mention of Styx before Lion's Heat Now he gets a whole book ... before Lawe, Rule, Ely, Dane, etc.? Huh?

smoothscotch said...

Oh Boy,Oh Boy..great news on the upcoming books. I place a bet Cassie mate is Dog,I can imagine her Dad wanting to kill him, LOL.
Okay, speaking of half breeds what's up with Jonah's kid being dangerous to breeds and humans alike, after all he would be a half breed just like David, Cassie, Dane or Mercury's mate?
and I caught the baby Amber is a kitten, that Brandenmore better have answers in next book. LOL...I LOVE IT

Shiloh Walker said...

Hey...I recognize a few of those names...

;o)

Sharon said...

Have mercy! 25 more to go? Sounds like heaven to me.

Clarice said...

Please don't stop at 25....couldn't you just keep writing them say like...FOREVER?! I love your Breed books! I keep reading them over and over again! By the way...Jonas, you delicious bad boy....you rule! Can't wait for the next Breed book, I'm sure whoever it's gonna be about...it's gonna be another amazing read. More power Lora!

EECJCC said...

OMG, I can not wait for each and every book. This is my favorite series all time. Really looking forward to Cassie and Dog's stories. Keep up the writing.

Jeni said...

I can't wait 25 more books OMG. I agree with AlabamaGirl I have had the hots for Dane since he arrived on the scene. Your heart breaks for him to finally find his "heart&home" with his mate. I also love his friend Rye any chance he has a mate in the near future? Lawe and Rule what can you say about those two but FUN and scared to death about the mating heat. I don't know about anyone else but who else wants to meet Jag????

Jb3256 said...

I love your books and can't wait to read more. Please make all of them available on Kindle.

Thanks

Judith Diaz said...

Oh My god I loved all this Info. You just made my year.........

amyc49188 said...

I cannot tell you how happy I am that this series will continue for at least 25 more books! Everytime I have finished one of them, I miss the characters and the community!

Milluvzbooks said...

Wow, I normally don't do this (responding to blogs) but.. I loved Jonas' story! It makes me more excited to read Cassie's. But I'm also looking forward to Ely's and Lawe and Rule's books. OH alright..I can't wait for the next one! I love them all! Keep them coming Lora and we will keep on reading. Thanks so much for this wonderful series!

Shannon said...

Oh, I am tooooo excited! I'm so glad that Dane is getting a book along with all the other Breeds listed including Dog and Cassie particularly! I simply can't wait to get my hands on them as you write them LL!

Carol said...

Thank goodness there is more to come! Since I can't have a Breed for a mate in real life, at least I can live vicariously through your books. Thank you for such a fascinating world in which to periodically get lost.

ladybirdrobi said...

I just finished Coyote's Mate and laughed and cried through it. By far it was emotionally wringing for me. I'm so glad that there are 25 Breeds to come. Do you have an order of who is coming when yet? If you should blog about the order announce it on facebook please as I am interested in who is coming next and thank you.

Catherine said...

25 more, 2 words "Hot Damn"!!
You write them, we'll read them.

Thanks for the Cassie tease, any more for any character?????

Pearl M said...

25!!!!! OMG I cant wait!!! wooo hooo!! ; D

Brittany said...

Wow I am so ready for Dane's book. I have loved him from the moment he was introduced. Cassie is another one of my favorites. The teaser was so great!!! I am more confused than ever though, but it awesome. The one part that throws me off is the "he has certain gifts". I only remember one other breed that was extraordinarily gifted... haha but anyways I can't wait for all 25 books to come out! You are the best writer and I am so hooked!

Ayonali said...

I absolutely love your books. Can't wait for Cassie and Dog's stories. But anything about the winged breeds? They were introduced, then nothing. I'm imagining that they're somewhere in those 25 books. But they just seemed like a cool idea.

Joyci said...

I sm speechless -- 25 more! Dane's and Cassie's books are greatly anticipated.

Mônica said...

OMG!
25 more, thanks Goddesses there and back.
Can't wait... have to...
I just love the series, bring the new ones soon

Alicia said...

I love all the Breed stories so I'm just waiting anxiously (and impatiently) for the next book.

Anna1964 said...

I love all of your books, but the Breeds are my favorite. Thank you for continuing to develop more and more characters for all of us to love ! I just finished reading Lions Heat for the second time and cannot wait for the next one. Thank you for all of the hard work you do for your fans.

JEM said...

I have read every book in The Breed's series! I started a blog encouraging people to read authors that I have enjoyed especially your books, specifically this series. I am looking forward to all of the books you still have left to write! You are an amazing author and I very much enjoy reading your books. Thank you!

I just finished Dawn's Awakening and I'm dying to read Cassie's story. I still have to read many of your other books but you are just sucking me in!

Also, I'm so glad I won't have to wait when I do finally get to Jonas's book!

Lawe lover said...

I'm so happy your working on cassie's book and I'm also happy that your working on Lawe's book, I love him! You are an amazing writter and I love all your books! Can't wait for the next breed book!

ladybirdrobi said...

Hi Lora,
Amazon is advertising that the next Breed book for Jan 2011 is to be Navarro?
Where did that come from? I don't remember that name in any book and it's not on the list in this post. Is there any truth to this?

Thanks,
Robin

dragon V said...

bummer, i was hoping that Dog was Cassie's mate....now i guess i'll have to wait - MAN I HATE WAITING

VA Girl said...

I can't wait to read Cassie's book. And Rule and Lawe. They crack me up. They are so grossed out by the mating heat. :) Love it! You keep writing them and I'll keep them on my shelf.

wishingitreal said...

Really enjoyed Lions Heat, looking forward to all the others. I've read all of them so far and have seen -0- on Navarro, very currious about that one and am waiting impatiently for Brim, Jackal & the Coyote girls too.

Candace said...

What about the story of the first leo, breed escapes and the begining of the genetics council

Just Tammy said...

Lora, I've just discovered your books,I think they are fantastic, the characters are all so unique, love them

Teresa said...

I can't wait to read the rest of the books - and please keep writing these.

Will Cavalier get a book? This is definitely my favorite series!

afw said...

Wow! I am so hungry for more! I still haven't read all the breed books currently published... I guess I better get busy & catch up before I start clamoring for more! Love, love, LOVED Lion's Heat! I was really interested to see what kind of woman he chose (or chose him).

Scotty said...

Can't wait for the 25 you already have..and the ????? that will develop!!! looking forward to all of them....Hope there are lots to come in your other series as well...own every book you have written that I could find!! keep'm coming
Justine

Pignato's said...

i am a beginner in this series and love them already still trying to catch up. red lions heat first and got hooked. can not wait for the next 25+

Mandie

caroline said...

Love your books. Can't wait to read more. Has the book about Dane been written yet? Trying to find out the name of it. Thanks.

Honey said...

I think it would be great fun for Lawe and Rule to find twins and mates. What ever you do come up with will be great. I love all of youe books.

Michelle said...

I love, love, love these books. I'm not really crazy about Dog. In an odd way, I wish that Cassie and Dane could end up together. I'm sure that won't happen because I doubt even in fiction could a wolf and a feline breed mate. But, there's a certain chemistry there that I find intriguing. They are both such strong critical characters that would form such an intense match.I'm also looking forward to what the future brings for Amber and David when they grow up. Not to mention how the political environment of the breeds evolve and what role will the breed kids like Cassie, Amber, and David will play in it once they become adults. Will there be a fast forward into the future kind on thing??

garends said...

I really was hoping that Dane was Cassie's mate. I was totally wrong. Looking forward to Cassie story.

Anitasfriend said...

I am so excited. I cant wait for all of these wonderfull books. Are you sure you need to sleep or have a life, wouldnt you rather spend 24 hours a day writing. This is my favorite series

Redheaded Firecraker said...

Thank you so much for the tease. I can wait better knowing its on the way than I ever would without teasing. I can't wait for any and all breed books you put out. I love this series. I started with Elizabeth's Wolf and haven't stopped since.

Iamurpet said...

Lora - way to go girl! You just upped all our excitement by the mention of '25 books'. I could just kiss you for that!!!

I can't wait for Cassie. She caught my attention even in Elizabeth's Wolf. Cassie could be the one that we all most look forward too.

Iamurpet said...

Cassie mentions to Dawn "Better your bullet than a Coyote's Rage" in Dawn's Awakening, could you explain that Lora

Tanisha said...

U R MY FAVOURITE AUTHOR!.I have read all ur books not once but again an again.....just can't get em out of my head...but now that u hav given us a peek into cassi's life im growing desperate day by day..and 25 MORE books!? I THINK I AM IN HEAVEN......thankyou 4 writing these books.they r every girls fantasy come true......plz! plz! and plz! never stop writing (breeds books especially).....will b waiting 4 ur books impatiently.

Tanisha said...

hi! just wanted to say that as a reader i have enjoyed ur books ,4 the lack of better word,immensly(which is an understatement),and i m waiting 4 lawe and rule's book impatiently,but 1 thing i would like 2 say is: u have never made any breed share their mates with another,which is unique about ur breed series(nd a fact i love),nd i would request u 2 continue doing so.that is please don't have only 1 woman 4 both lawe and rule.it will b great if u have 2 different books 4 them.thanx

Karen McCormack said...

I love Cassie, but who doesn't. I think Elizabeth's Wolf (when we first meet her) is one of my favorite BREED books. Can't wait to meet her mate. That's going to be intense for everyone. Dash, Jonas, Kane ... just WOW!
I just can't get enough of the BREEDs. I love them all. And of course the Nauti, Bound Hearts, Tempting Seals, Elite Ops. OK EVERYTHING you write. I would enjoy your grocery list I'm sure.

Donna said...

25 more books exceeds my greatest wish! Wow! I am picturing Dog with Cassie, but I'm not sure that all the pieces fit together for the little hints and teasers that you have given us... Dane definitely needs his own book because he is HOT, HOT, HOT! I was really sad that he was in love with Death, but he needs someone whom he can protect and baby (he is such a superman!).

KTdid said...

I don't know if anybody else has asked this question or not, but, since I reread Lions Heat for the fourth time I am really curious to know if Amber will get her own book? I would love to see her with any of the breed's! I'm already imagining how Jonas is going to deal with it LOL!
Keep writing this wonderful series forever! 25 more books seems just like too few to me!

Natalie33 said...

I can not wait!!!! I have read many many books but I have to say that your books top any other books I have read!!! And now that I know what is coming I can hardly wait I can't wait to read cassie's story as well as Lawe's & Rule's!!

ddbhill said...

Just finished Aiden's Charity...LOVE IT. About to start Elizebeth's Wolf. Need to know if you're going to write something on Dr. Nikki Armani. Her character needs a breed.

yia said...

I think Cassie's mate is a Coyote. For one, in Dawn's Awakening, the teaser in the end mentioned never to dare him; and well, after reading Coyote's Mate, you know never to dare a Coyote. That's Clue #1. Clue #2, Cassie is part Coyote and she also associates the Coyote part of her with the "bad" side of her. It would be too easy if her mate was a wolf. Makes the story more interesting that he's a coyote. Now the only questions are who is he and have we met him? I have a feeling he's part of Del Ray's Ghost Team.

Nancy Elena said...

i admire your work i think that I your number one fan in Costa Rica. I cant wait to read 25 more books especially the one from Cassie. Thanks for writting

Shan said...

Lol! Reading th comments below totally had me smiling :) What can i say, you are th best! Sadly, though, ive been reading everything backwards, lol. I cannot wait for Dog's story :D And little David's, as well as Cassie's. Oh and Dane. Eh, pretty much everyone you've been teasing us with :) Another though, would be Amber. I'd love to see Jonas clawing his eyes out when her mate claims her. I have yet to read Elizabeth's Wolf, lol. x

Jessica said...

What about Brim? Is Brim gonna mate in this series?

Book-junkie said...

I don't know whether I should laugh or cry. I am so looking forward to every last book but at the current rate I will be almost 50 before the last of those is out.

Yamini said...

wow can i xpect megan's cousin lance's story too

Lisa said...

Wow! Looking forward to the next 25 books of this series! Could you give a hint of how many books we will have to wait on Cassie's Story? Please, don't make us wait too long!
Thank you for writing such a Fantastic Series!

Aryana said...

Is that a trick question? OF COURSE WE LOVE BREEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mary Ellen Quigley said...

25 more breed books! I'm so excited.

As much as I adore Cassie, the book I am really waiting for is Dane's. I love his character. He seems so sad without Harmony. I'm looking forward to meeting the woman who will be his mate.

For a long time, I was waiting for Jonas' book. I was very pleased with his story.

debbi said...

I just started reading the Breed's a few months ago. I'm reading Mercury's War at the moment and have the rest ...well through Navarro's Promise anyway... just waiting. I've dropped my other Authors (thank God they haven't come out with new ones in their series' yet!) to get caught up here.

Unknown said...

Wow. Such a delicious teaser about Cassie. Like everyone else, my wife and I are very eager to read her story. But then again, we have loved them all, from the very beginning. A friend turned us onto the series, and we haven't looked back. Only forward. And now, at least 25 more?! I believe each of us begins to understand true hunger...

And yes, I said my wife and I. Yes, I am a guy, who loves this series. I don't read romance novels, but I loved the premise, and the characters.

Keep 'em coming! :)

Unknown said...

Wait a minute!!! I just saw this on Ms. Leighs News and reviews page on her website...


"November 2011
WAKE THE SLEEPING TIGER: Feline(tiger) novella –
He’s a primal. His genetics are recessed. He’s a law abiding, trusted member of the small community he’s a part of and he’s determined to ensure the animal inside him sleeps. Until the mated pair, Lawe Justice and Diane Broen step into the quiet, peaceful little town he claims as his own and with their arrival, blood begins spilling. Now, as sheriff, he has to find a killer, keep his animal hidden, and try to find a way to make sense of the sudden hunger, the raging dominance, and the pure animal need to mark the one woman he’s sworn he’d stay away from. The woman a killer has set his eyes on."

When did Lawe get a mate?! Anyone know which book that is, because that is one we missed!

Trannessa said...

At the moment all I'm anxious for is Ely with Jackal (hopefully), Dane, Jax and Dog with Cassie (hopefully). Geeeee 25..... I thought you were gonna end it with another 5-10.

Trannessa said...

OMG at that rate of 25 books I may be in my mid 20s! I cannot wait again for Ely with Jackal (fingers crossed) and Cassie with Dog! BRIM AND JAX TOO! And last of all Dane :)
You're a truly great writer! Please please release your next stories asap.
