Lion's Heat (Breeds #21)
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.
Rachel has been Jonas's personal assistant for a few months. During this time Rachel has proven to be very efficient at handling Jonas's schedule and putting up with his arrogant and manipulating ways. Jonas knew as soon as he saw Rachel that she was his mate but he refuses to claim her because he is afraid she would be targeted by his many e ...more
I’ve waited years for this book. Early on I kept telling people that the story I really wanted to read was that of Jonas Wyatt. I wanted to see him suffer. I wanted to see him have to face the same jokes and the mocking comments he loved to dish out to others going through mating heat. I was hoping to hear more of Lawe’s and Rule’s “ain’t gonna happen to me” vows that were so plentiful in Bengal’s Heart. I have to say I was a tad disappointed in that very little of that actually happened.
Oh wel ...more
I've been in love with Jonas Wyatt since he first came on the scene in Harmony's Way (an otherwise less than stellar addition to the series). Or was it Megan's Mark? Either way, he had me at "Hello". :)
Since LL tends to be hit or miss at times, I was so afraid she wouldn't do Jonas justice, but rest assured, she knocked it out of the park with this one!

I had high expectations for this book. I've been waiting for Jonas' story almost since the guy first appeared in this series, and seeing how arrogant this lions was, how manipulative, I simply couldn't wait to see him brought to his knees by the right woman.
To say I was disappointed is a huge understatement.
Rachel sure didn't fill the bill for Jonas' mate, IMHO. I felt he deserved more, I expected, I wanted more for him. He got a whiny, emotionally-crippl ...more
We finally get to Jonas' book and it was almost everything you would expect it to be. But let's be honest, it's all about Jonas. I loved everything about him, shockingly so. He surprised me so much. You knew he would just take care of everything but I loved how he was sooo patient...and I love how he was wit ...more
I won't go into plot summary but I will say that I truly enjoyed this book. Jonas was a great character. While I had always appreciated him in the other books, I had fallen for both the man and animal in his book. I felt that there was a softer side shown to him and we caught glimpses of why he was the way he was. He r ...more

The long awaited Jonas story. And what a killer read. LL has outdone herself with this much anticipated addition to the Breed series.
I really would suggest anyone attempting this to have at least read the last 4 or 5 Breed books, if not all of them, otherwise you just aren't going to be able to appreciate the nuances of Jonas and his relationship with Rachel and baby Amber. Jonas has been the one Breed everyone, readers included, that inspired the most emotion. Love, hate, admire, despise ...more
Well, not so much. Yes, the sex scenes go on for pages upon pages and they're ...more
I wanted Jonas to suffer the effects of his mate and unbridled lust...For him to finally lose control...For him to have to succumb to the animal that he keeps under constant guard from escaping...For ...more
How often does it happen lately that you anxiously look forward to the lastest installment of one of your favorite series? Only to have it fall short and not live up to those high hopes.
I just finished reading Lion's Heat, and Jonas's book is a home run.
It starts off at a fast pace and the story just keeps on moving along with all of the things that make this series awesome. Jonas is hot! We ...more
Rachel enters Jonas's world, pregnant with another man's child, as his newly hired assistant. Jonas's connection to the baby (Amber) growing inside Rachel was neat to read about and how he maintained a relationship with Amber after her birth was and "ah" moment for me. Jonas and Ambe ...more
I'm so damn glad Jonas found his mate and I really like Rachel, strong and determine and she made the first move, I loved it!!!
Highly recommend this book.
i have to admit it made me smile to see Jonas getting a taste of his own, with a mate that was a little more than difficult at times. on the other hand i half expected her to take a hel ...more

I do like seeing that Lora Leigh's writing continues to get back on track with fewer glaring editing issues or huge plot holes. However, not sure if it is her or me or a combination, but Lion's Heat just didn't pack the same punch for me that her Breeds books prior to 2009 had. I'm still a fan but wasn't s ...more

If there's anything I hate more than when the author who makes the hero a cheater is when she makes him repeatedly repeats "You're mine" as he savagely rips into her throat or "You and I are mate forever b/c we're mates for life."
That becomes a load of crap when it's all we hear from the main guy, the secondary characters, and the stupid narration. I get it, damnit! You're freaking mates and you like them to be "mine" forever ...more
