To save innocent, young Storme Montague from the claws of Breed slave traders, Wolf Breed Styx is forced to claim her himself-on the condition that Storme will no longer be a virgin by night's end. And though Storme's defenses are up, Styx will free her-in ways she never expects.

Literary's Views

A rock and a hard place, that is where Storme ultimately finds herself in Lora Leigh newest Breed novel. She’s been on the run since she was fourteen years old after witnessing the gruesome murder of her family when the breed compound where her father & brother worked as genetic scientists worked and lived, was over run. With over ten years of running and staying one step ahead of the Council and the Bureau of Breed Affairs her days of running was finally at an end when she ran into Styx Mackenzie who is a wolf breed enforcer for the Bureau of Breed Affairs. Fighting to hold on to her father’s last task for her and make the right decision with the important information that in either the Council or the Bureau of Breed Affairs hands could change the impact of Breeds in society forever. Holding on to this important task she has to figure out what to do about the uncontrollable feelings she instantly has for Styx. Which causes a whole other level of problems because of Storm’s long standing hatred and fear for the Breeds and Styx being a Breed himself.

Lora Leigh did a great job capturing and holding my attention throughout the story. It was a great blend of romance and suspense in whether Storme would give up the information that everyone so desperately wanted and whether it would be to a friend or the ultimate enemy. Both Styx and Storme was such strong characters with interesting pasts and I really enjoyed the interaction between them and the clashing of wills. I soon found myself emotionally invested in the story which Lora never fails to ignite in her books, and how it would all play out in the end. I understood where Styx and Storm was coming from which made the story that much more powerful with how at odds their view and goals were from each other. Can Storme and Styx overcome all of the problems facing them to realize if the feelings they have for each other is real and worth fighting for? You’ll just have to read it to find out which I defiantly recommend.
