Publisher's Summary

For six years Anya Korbin worked with Del-Rey Delgato—the genetically altered rebel known as the Coyote Ghost—to free a group of coyote women kept in her father’s lab. As Anya matured into a woman, she and Del-Rey grew close…but then he broke his promise and killed her father. Now she must deal with her animalistic desire for the one who betrayed her.

One of the best breeds novels

This book in the series was by far was the most emotional and well developed love stories of the breeds stories. I felt and believed the emotion and agony of the main characters. Some of Leigh's books just contain filler between the sex scenes, this one was far better written and the erotic scenes were an evolution of the story and as always the love scenes are well written although very graphic, for those who enjoy the more subtle romance stories, this may not be your cup of tea.

OMG......I love this book!

This is one of the best books in the series. I actually cried reading this book, not only because of misunderstanding between Del-Ray and Anya but between Anya and her friends and the breeds she rescued. Not a book you can put down.

GREAT STORY !!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I like the story. It had it all. Concern for family, concern for the mission, concern for each other even though they tried to hide it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Coyote's Mate?

The most memorable was the end. A Breed finally recognized the worth of his mate and went on his knees for her. I get that the Breeds are dominant, but it gets boring time after time how they show their dominence.

What aspect of Brianna Bronte’s performance would you have changed?

This time, nothing. Since mostly everyone was foreign the accents and the voices were different from all the other previous breeds.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A love unrecognized, will it have time to devlope or will death win in the end?

Any additional comments?

I think that this story was nicely devloped and the story line was not rushed.

What was that mess?

I was completely annoyed to have to listen to the heroine's pseudo-Russian accent for the entire length of the story only to discover at the end, via an obvious clue, that the heroine was supposed to be speaking American English. Grrr. Did the narrator not read the book before the performance? I also found the narrator's delivery painfully overly dramatic. Perhaps this story is a better read than a listen. This is one book in a long, complicated series, so don't even think about picking this one up until you've read or listened to several of the earliest books. Overall, I just found the story line tedious. The hero was beyond stupid with some of his decisions. I could have forgiven that if he were a little quicker on the uptake with fixing his poor choices, but then there wouldn't have been much of a book. The technical infrastructure between all the breeds, societies, political factions, etc., is getting quite complex. My interest in it was waned and my patience is shot. I am completely flummoxed by the overwhelmingly good reviews; I don't normally disagree so assertively with the masses. But disagree I do!

(For those interested, the American English clue came when the heroine, in a completely out of context moment, ponders why her father who raised her chooses to speak English with a Russian accent when she knows he speaks perfectly good unaccented American English. I took that to mean she herself must choose to speak unaccented American English, otherwise she would not be pondering that.)

Emotional erotic romance

Loved this one, as good as the feline ones. I actually teared up a couple of times. This one built much slower to a true love story, because there were many obstacles. The story was great as well as the smokin hot sex. Want to hear more about the female coyotes, they were very interesting side characters. Great narration by Brianna Bronte.

Love the Book…Hate the Narrator

This is probably my favorite Breed novel so I was super excited to try it out on Audio. Boy was I let down. The narrator was so boring and most of the time I’m able to move past the fact that the voices don’t match what I had in my head or they don’t emphasize what I personally think should be. But come on man she couldn’t even get the heroine’s name pronounced correctly. I didn’t finish chapter 3 it was so bad. Would LOVE to see this re-recorded. Potentially with a male and female.

Loved the book and author but not the narrator

Love Lora Leigh's work and the Breed series in particular. I find I prefer the books that have both male and female narrators. My biggest issue with this woman is that she can manage a Russian accent and can't manage to pronounce Anya. Not rocket science.

Del Gado's voice leaves a lot to be desired

It's time to have add a male voice to balance the excellent female voice of Brianna Bronte. BB's male voice leaves me wanting something male, something strong, something raw and rough.

The narrator did a better job with the accents.

AUDIBLE REVIEW
The audible version was pretty good.
The narrator did a better job with the accents in this one than with Mercury’s War.
I just felt worse when innocent Carlin dies and I teared up when everything happened between Anya and Jax causing such upset.
You get a stronger feeling of how things are shaping up for the Breeds and how treacherous the human council in Advent are.
BOOK REVIEW
One very convoluted story but one of my favourites in this series. I just loved the complexities of this story. Too much to put in a review and do it justice.
Del-Rey is the ultimate council trained coyote leader. He is cool headed, a military genius, a brilliant leader. Unluckily for the council he didn’t like their way of life and now leads a band of rebel coyotes.
Moving to be near Wolves Haven he finds a great set of caves in the mountain and makes a base there.
Planning an attack on one of the Russian labs he is met by an informant, Anya, a young girl who gives him information.
Years pass and Anya grows up but still Del Ray has not helped the breeds escape the Russian lab.
When the attack does happen, Del Ray betrays Anya. Then the mating heat forces a bond between them.
The first separation between a breed and his mate is in this book. But the really good part is that the coyotes are forced to truly start communicating with the other Breeds and get a start on becoming part of the Breed Enclaves and Cabinet that have formed.
Unfortunately for Del Ray, he is also an idiot when it comes to his mate, Anya. He does everything wrong from the get go. I did love when he finally went after her and how he stood up to the Breed hierarchy.
I have owned these books for years and reread them often but my earlier reviews are missing.

Brilliant

Del-Rey Delgato alpha of the coyotes is in for the ride of his life with his mate Anya Korbin if he is to stand a chance of keeping his mate he is going to have to stop the stupid decisions he keeps making but, to do so he will have to overcome the stubborn arrogance of a Breed male and that’s not so easy for him and he just might lose his mate before he works it out. A highly entertaining story full of laughter, betrayal, deep sadness and all consuming passion which I highly recommend as well as the series as a whole because it one of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
