Lance and Harmony meet on page 17 of this book and by page 55 have had very lengthy sex twice -- the second time with some bondage thrown in -- which is once more than they’ve had conversations. That continues to be the pattern throughout. Sex, sex, a tiny bit of story and then some more sex.

I usually am fine with “fated mate” stories, but this one really pushed it. The mating seems mainly a way of subjugating the woman and keeping her helpless. There’s some thematic reason for this; Harmony is

Lora Leigh has consistently delivered page-turning drama and suspense with the Breeds series and Harmony's Way is one that will 'haunt' me (see my profile for my star-rating descriptions).

The hero, Lance Jacobs, was introduced in Megan's Mark but he is revealed in Harmony's Way as a dominant alpha male, possessive and protective.

The heroine, Harmony Lancaster, is very much a study in contrasts. From the beginning, she reveals a feminine side in that she polishes her toenails, yet there is nothin
At first, I considered giving this book a 5-star rating, just because of Jonas... Man, thats one Breed Id like to know up close and personal! ;) Then I thought: if I was more attracted to a secondary character than to the H/h, there was something "wrong" with this book... I really liked Lance and Harmony, but I stopped paying attention to them everytime Jonas made an appearance. I checked the following books in the Breeds series to see which one was HIS story but, darn!, LL hasnt published it ye ...more

Per usual HW is packed with HOT alpha men, one spunky (and this time- tortured) heroine, lots of sex, lots of explicit language over said sex and an ever advancing plot.

Despite all the above goodness, and I can’t believe I’m gonna say this, there was almost TOO much sex in it. Worst of all, the hero was a “talker” while doing the deed. I actually found myself skimming the sex scenes to get to more of the plot.

But HW is important because this is where we get more info on “the original Breed”, (a

Precioso!! Realmente ésta es una de las mejores entregas de la serie, tanto por el argumento, como por los personajes y su relación, que se siente increíblemente fluida, a diferencia de algunas de las novelas anteriores.

Al igual que en "Megan`s mark", la acción se desarrolla en el pequeño pueblo de Broken Butte y es Lance, el primo de Megan y sheriff de la localidad, quien ahora debe enfrentarse a los síntomas de acoplamiento que caracterizan a las parejas de una casta. Ella es Harmony, que con

Even though I rated them the same, Harmony's Way was worse than Megan's Mark as far as the romance is concerned. I did not care about Lance and Harmony at all. I didn't get to know who Lance was and Harmony is supposed to be the best there is that she is nicknamed "Death", but once Lance steps into the picture, she becomes a meek, weak-willed woman who cries all the time. The sex scenes were so numerous and repetitive, that I just skimmed right through them. The only thing that kept my interest ...more

It is often said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Maybe I need to pay closer attention to conventional wisdom. Obviously, there is something about these books that makes me pick one up every few months or so. But there are also finite things about the series that consistently make me want to bang my head against the wall every time I read. And so here I am, at the completion of yet another installment, shaking my head at ...more

Harmony Lancaster, a.k.a. Death, has worked on her assassin career for the past ten years, since her escape from the Breed Labs. She uses every skill she's learned in captivity to rid the world of the people who pray on the innocent, especially children.

But Harmony's hunted. When she escaped, she stole priceless information a lot of people would give anything to possess, including her brother, Jonas Wyatt. When he captures her, instead of enacting the Breed Law for her crimes, he decides to give

Dominant, territorial, possessive, protective....and this was Lance, the human! Great hero....could hear the winds speak to him, but fought gift most of his life.

Harmony is a Feline Breed asassasin that has been on the run for 10 years. She's known as Death. She's never felt safe until she meets Lance.

I enjoyed this book very much. The sex was often and dominating, but very sweet also. I loved how Lance spoke to Harmany when he was assuring her.

This started out good....fizzled in the middle and ended with a bang ~ literally! Lance and Harmony are great together and I really enjoyed learning more about the Breeds, Jonas and the first Leo...even Dane was interesting.

BUT the cheesy sex was a bit much for me AND there's was NO romance....except maybe the ending. So that is what is giving me hope to maybe read a few other books in the series ~ that and a certain friend {V!!} that adamantly insist there are good books in this series. Wish m

I enjoyed reading about Lance and Harmony. Harmony was an interesting character and Lance was actually a pretty good character I enjoyed their romance but am even more intrigued by Dane, Jonas and the first Leo. I want to know more about them and I want Dane to get his mate and I wouldn't mind if Ryan also would get a mate.

This is a very good addition to this series. I loved Harmony the first time that I read the book and I love her more after reading the story a second time. I also love Lance. He found a special place in my heart because he cared so much for Megan, Megan's Mark. Lance is one of those alpha males that we all wish we could find. He is loyal, compassionate, and very dominant. He also doesn't take any nonsense from Jonah. Jonah is at his most manipulative in this story. Jonah is determined to save Ha ...more

Prior to her escape from the labs, Harmony Lancaster was breed as an assassin and trained to kill. Now on the outside, she seeks justice for the weak and innocent, which puts her in danger not only from racial purists but from Breed Law as well. To save her life, Harmony is placed in the care of Sheriff Lance Jacobs who can see the gentle and caring woman beneath the façade of a killer. Their new relationship is soon threatened on all fronts and Harmony and Lance w

Harmony Lancaster is a lion Breed. Created to be a killer, she has become a problem to other Breeds with the way she get justice. But they can not kill her as she holds information stolen from the labs that contains vital information about the first Leo.

She is mated with Sheriff Lance Jacobs, a man who has resisted a side of himself for far to long. But when Harmony comes into his life he will embrace fully keep her alive.

I really liked this book, though it did start out slow, the middle/ending

I'm really starting to get sick of Lora Leigh's writing. There doesn't seem to be much of a plot behind any of her novels ... or any true emotions. Just one character having a lot (and graphic sex) with another character who Lora Leigh then declares the mate of which ever character is breed.

Harmony's Way (Breed Series, #8) isn't much different. You find out Harmony is a Breed they formerly called Death. Her brother, who you are lead to believe wants revenge against her for killing their mother,

I really enjoyed this story . Harmony struggled against feeling, she was a killer, she had blood on her hands and didn't think she deserved the love of a good man. everything changed when she met Lance Jacobs, this was no chance meeting, set up by her brother Jonas, he wanted some leverage to get the the information on the first breed Harmony held.

I loved the story between Lance and Harmony. They had instant chemistry which made their first encounter very steamy. I love the way the author continues to bring in new characters but I wish she would mention the older characters. I would love more detail on how the relatiohships are going. Some of the characters were pregnant at the end of their books and I only know of two that have had their babies and what the sex of the baby is.
I would have liked to see Harmony stay a little tough. I was

Harmony Lancaster, a lion breed female, is Jonas Wyatt's half sister and was also an assassin named Death.

Since killing all the scientists including her mother in the escape 10 years ago she has been killing child abusers and rapists.

She has had enough but doesn't know how to stop doing that and thinks she must continue. Jonas, has other plans.

Jonas has worked out that her mate is Lance Jacobs, a Sherriff, and he engineers that they meet. He knows that Lance will be able to refocus Harmony's l

As soon as I finished this book I thought back and I cant even remember if it had a story line...
All I got from this book was that if Harmony didnt do what Lance told her to do he would sex with her.
So for me it was pretty much argument=sex, then another argument=sex and so on.
Also I didnt quite get how Harmony was this so called killing machine aka death. When she was put under any pressure at all she freaked out and then.. um had more sex! The attraction that they had for one another seemed s

3.5 stars. I don't know, but I couldn't get into this one, idk if it was the characters or the fact that I've been reading these back-to back no break. It took me way to long to read, I'd set it down and not look forward to picking it back up. I am looking forward to Tanner's book, though, I'm going to read something in between, I don't want this to happen again.. I just felt like I had to finish to get any backstory in for the future books, didn't even care for the main story :(

Another good breed book. Harmony is an "Assassin" she was also known as Death. Someone is after her for something she took along time ago. She meets Lance Jacobs, he's Meghan's cousin. They wind up in a whirlwind of events, from being chased, shot at, countless other "tingly" events.

It was hard for me to get into the book for whatever reason. It picked up really good about half way. The beginning is very essential to the book though.
Ah! I loved this book! Definitely my favorite in the series so far. Harmony and Lance are so bada** and hot together.

I liked Harmony instantly, her random obsession with beauty products and wicked humor. It was also refreshing to see a woman so completely competent and capable, much more so than the others in the series so far. Her struggles were powerful and heart wrenching. Even when she was insecure she was sassy, it hilarious.

Lance was very likeable and accepting of the whole mating process.

Oh my word how good was this book.
It was blooming fantastic, by the end my heart was in my mouth and tears were in my eyes. The intensity with which Lora Leigh writes is immense. You are on the edge of your seat getting an adrenaline rush believing 100% in the world she creates. I was going to read a book from a different series next but not now book 9 here I come.

I loved this book. I didn't know what was going to happen from one page to the next.
Harmony was a stubborn breed. She kept saying she didn't need anyone in her life. But she had been keeping a secret stash of stuff on the first "Leo" and she had it hid. But someone kept trying to kill her.
So the one person she knew as her brother "Jonas" took her to Broken Butte. She was reluctant to go because she didn't know what he was putting her into. But the first night there she goes to the bar and h

If I thought what I was reading before was "hot and heavy", I was definitely in for a surprise with Harmony's Way. The story was interesting yet predictible. The steamy bit were course and very graphic. If you are looking for graphic sex and light plot, this series is for you. A nice brainless, hot and heavy read.

Why is it so hard for me to write my thoughts on this book? I loved reading it. I had tears in my eyes during the last few chapters. We got a tiny bit info on the history of why there are Breeds. Sorry, I can't really come up with anything else to say about it right now.
