Publisher's Summary

He’s a genetic experiment. The merging of human and lion DNA his creators call a Breed. And they have no idea just what kind of the creature they brought into being.

Callan Lyons wanted only to be left in peace to protect the small group of Breeds he rescued from a New Mexico lab, but those who created them refuse to stop their continued attempts to recapture them. And the owner of a small, reputable paper, once a friend of his birth mother’s, now has proof of his existence. Proof that has caught his daughter Merinus Tyler’s fascination and ensured her determination to find him. But once they touch, they’ll become far more than either ever imagined possible.

Man created them, but nature has made them her own. Beginning with Callan, she’ll show the world the folly of playing with the very building blocks of all she protects. And Merinus will learn the folly of tempting the beast....

Excellent erotic romance

I have every book in this series, didn’t want to even miss the novellas. Was so grateful when these first books were finally made into audio, have every audio now too. This is one of my favorite series and I have every book Lora Leigh has written. (If you like this series ck out Laurann Dohner’s New Species series, they have more heart felt emotion in them.)Ms Leigh writes in-depth smokin hot erotic stories. Great narration by Brianna Bronte.

Pretty good but not my favorite

I enjoyed the book enough to get the second but it wasn’t my favorite start to a series. The story like was a tad thin for me.

Extremely boring

I absolutely struggled to finish this. The main female character was a whining drama queen. The main male character spent all his time telling her "I'm on the edge, take off your clothes". The teeny bit of plot was so slow. I don't know that I'll continue withtheseries. I definitely can't believe the reviews.

Excellent story

The first of the Breeds series is about Callan Lyons and Merinus Tyler they meet when Merinus goes after Callan trying to get him to come forward and expose those who created and experimented on him. What follows is a story full of those who would kill them, betrayal and an all consuming relationship between the two of them. A really good listen, it’s an excellent story which I highly recommend.
