ISBN-13: 978-0425233801

The mating urge cannot be ignored...

Bad boy Jonas Wyatt knows it is fate that Rachel becomes his mate. He can sense it. He can also sense her reluctance. But she has little power over the mating heat of the Breeds. It is Jonas's destiny to claim her. And nothing will stop him from having his way.


EXCERPT from Lion's Heat by Lora Leigh (c)...(unedited)

For the first time in her life, Rachel Broen was terrified. It wasn't fear. It was soul destroying, mind numbing, and silently screaming terror.

She couldn't scream aloud, it would draw notice. Notice that her tears and ragged sobs wouldn't draw, weren't drawing as she slid her unassuming little Civic into the deserted parking lot of the Bureau of Breed Affairs.

The night guard on duty had taken her pass without much notice. He knew her car; he'd seen enough of her to know who she was. It wasn't unusual for her to leave late, or to arrive early if she was commanded to do so by the autocratic bureau director, Jonas Wyatt.

The guard had easily accepted her hasty excuse that she'd forgotten to update his memos and his morning schedule, and that it had to be done tonight.

He hadn't noticed her torn blouse; the jacket she wore covered it. He hadn't seen the bruise she could feel spreading across the right side of her face, or the swollen condition of her right eye.

The blow had been carefully delivered.

Jumping from the car she felt the rough asphalt bite into her bare feet as she stumbled before racing to the door. It took two attempts to get her electronic card pass to activate the doors and release the locks.

A thin sob tore from her chest as she nearly fell through the door and ran for the stairs that led to the third floor and the private offices of the director, Jonas Wyatt.

Jonas. The manipulating, calculating bastard. This was his fault. He'd played too many games. He'd pushed the wrong people and had so erroneously believed they would come after him.

She tripped, her knee slamming into a step, the skin breaking as a ragged scream of rage and pain tore from her lips.

She was paying for it.

Oh God. She was paying for it. She was paying for her stubbornness, her determination... No, she wasn't paying for it. The bruises, the agony tearing through her leg, the ragged pain in her side from the fist she had taken earlier, the bruises on her face, they were nothing. She would suffer that pain a thousand times over. She would suffer the fires of hell if only her child was safe.

Jonas. He was here.

A strangled scream tore from her lips as she fought to breath, to race up the second flight of stairs. One more flight. Dear God, she was almost there.

Jonas was here. She knew he was. He had warned her that evening not to come to work tomorrow. He had known his enemies were tracking him. He'd known, the son of a bitch, he'd known and just as she'd warned him months ago, when they struck, it wouldn't be him they went after.

She had never believed they would come after her child.

"Jonas!" She tried to scream out his name as fumbled the electronic key at the door to the main offices.

Sliding it again, again, and still it wouldn't work.

"Jonas please..." she screamed out again, terrified he would ignore her, knowing he had to hear her.

He was a breed.

The lock released, the heavy steel door flew open, and nearly pitched her to the floor as the door to Jonas' office was jerked open across the room.

He's here, and he isn't alone. She barely saw the others though. She saw his face, hated and yet adored. His eyes, alive in his bronzed face, swirls of silver mercury as he jumped to her, barely catching her before she fell to the floor.

"You bastard!" An open handed slap to his shocked face as sobs tore from her, tears making her vision cloudy as terror choked her, ripping the breath from her body. "I warned you! I warned you they wouldn't strike you!"

Yay, I will get my "Lion's Heat" copy tomorrow and can't wait to read it.

Wendy said...

I have read all of the Breed Books on my Kindle and have loved them. I pre-ordered Lion's Heat and am REALLY UPSET that it did not come out on the Kindle! I will not buy the book in any other format and am so disappointed that someone thought that this was a good idea. :-(

Manloaf said...

Same for me. I pre-ordered this on the kindle and then it was canceled. I hope this eventually gets released because I won't be buying the paperback.

Janet said...

I am also upset about the Kindle issue. Amazon and Penguin need to work the issues out soon! I bought a Kindle so I wouldn't have to buy the physical books. I have no room to store books.

mcpam said...

I share the frustration regarding availability on Kindle. I contacted Penguin and Amazon and am getting canned answers that they are working on it. I would really like something concrete.. this is so disappointing...I was so looking forward to Lion's heat and was counting the days until it was released to my Kindle only to get the email that it was a no go....

I also had my order for the Kindle cancelled, I am looking for a different version so hopefully I can read it on my other ebook reader instead.
I refuse to buy paper books anymore, as this is my way of helping the enviroment.

It would also be great if other books were made available to Australia

Rabia said...

Hey Lora, I feel like I'm really missing out on Jonas' story. I pre-ordered on Kindle, and can't really buy the paperback since I don't live in the US. Please ask Penguin and Amazon to sort this out SOON

Mac said...

I'm just dying to read this book. I can't wait until I find it!!!!

L in El Paso said...

Just another of the disappointed waiting to get this book on my kindle. Hope the issues are resolved soon!

Eco Mums and Bubs said...

Can anyone tell me where to get it as a TXT, or a NON DRM pdf, at least the kindle can read this.
If not even a lit file would be great.

There is no way I am buying the paperbook. It is a waste of paper for a book that will take me a night to read.

Eco Mums and Bubs said...

Unfortunately it has meant for me that I am now reading authors I never would of thought I would enjoy and just finished two new series that I am warmarking the next releases for.
I buy 3 books a week. It is a big hobby and relaxation for me.
