The Heroine (Rachel)
Rachel, knew that when she accepted the job as Jonas’ assistance that she would have to fight him tooth and nail on about everything, however she never expected to feel a searing heat whenever he was near, or that she would have to come to him for protection for herself and her daughter, and that he would be her destiny in ways that she never imagined….
Lions Heat is the 21 in the Breeds series by Lora Leigh. I have read this book when it first came out, but I have been a lot of this series lately, and Lion’s Heat has always been one of my favorites to read, and last week I was in the mood to read Lion’s Heat, especially since I had yet to do a review for the book. Lion’s Heat is a thrilling and intense story filled with heat, intrigue and danger, and a romance of two people that are meant to be but fight to deny it in the process. I just love Jonas, even though he is pure alpha male, but worse is that he is very controlling on every situation and can be very manipulative. However he has met his match with Rachel, who can be just as manipulative, but still has a endearing quality about her, that you can’t help but cheer her on. There was such magic to this story that you can’t help but keep reading from beginning to end without putting it down. A THRILLING TALE!!!!
My Favorite Quote
The woman was everything he could have wanted in a mate. She was the dream he’d never allowed himself to wish for. This was a temptation he knew he could never allow himself to weaken to. It was a vow. And this small woman was shredding his determination one look, one word, one breath at a time.
