She brought him back from death and made him live again.

Dash thought himself alone, a soldier, a fighting machine and no more.

Elizabeth made him realize he was a man.

Danger surrounds the woman his soul marked as his mate, death and blood and a treachery that goes beyond even his worst nightmares. But he will protect her and what she claims as her own. He was created to kil

Recommends it for: Fans of Erotic Romance, Lora Leigh and/or The Breeds
Some readers seem to think that a good storyline and good erotic content are mutually exclusive, and while, unfortunately, this is often the case, I, for one, do not automatically think that my brain needs to be checked at the door when I'm in the mood for a really hot, steamy romance. But alas, perhaps I'm expecting too much. The plot of Elizabeth's Wolf felt like it was built up around the scorching love scenes, and when all was said and done, I was left with more questions than answers both a ...more
Opening Line: "The letter came at a time in his life when the battle inside his soul could have tipped either way."

Now this is the Lora Leigh that made me a fan. Erotic romance at its best; Steamy, graphic love scenes mixed with action and suspense. Written in 2004 (when she still used an editor and cared) and before her storylines became repetitive, ridiculous and made sense.

ELIZABETH'S WOLF was my first Breed book and even though its the forth in the series, stands alone just fine and had me
Elizabeth's Wolf is another winner from Lora Leigh. This book has the longest length so far (that I've read) out of all her Ellora's Cave published Breed books, so we get excellent story telling plus all the hot, naughty, nekkid sex Lora Leigh could throw at us. This book was smoking hot and Dash was delicious! I really liked Elizabeth too and all the cute glimpses I got with Cassie in Kiss of Heat, I got even more of in Elizabeth's Wolf.

Dash was a really take charge kind of man and only in a r
Elizabeth's Wolf had one of the best starts to a story I've ever read. It captured my immediate attention and drew me into the story without hesitation, leaving me convinced from the outset that this was going to be one helluva 5 star read.

Whew! I've enjoyed all the Breed books I've read so far, but this one was exceptional! Both the lead characters were strong, yet vulnerable. Neither could believe their good fortune in finding the other. A child is involved, who has to deal with issues way beyond her tender years. Peripheral characters round things out by giving further insights into the hero's character. Oh, yeah; the intimancy between the couple is INTENSE! This IS Lora Leigh, after all! A suspenseful, tender, HOT, emotional l ...more
I´m not a big fan of books with children - they´re usually too sugary sweet or too unbelievable mature for their age. That said, I must admit I LOVED Cassie. How could I not? She made me smile with her chocolate "addiction" - one I can truly relate to :) - and she broke my heart when her "horrible past" was revealed. I loved Dash and Elizabeth too, but it was Cassie who made the book for me. I wonder if we´ll ever see her grown up and what choices in life she´ll make.

As for the "kinky stuff"...

The letter came at a time in his life when the battle inside his soul could have tipped either way.
The first opening line...memorable, broken, sad - the feelings it ignited in me were just unbelievable!!
My Momma says there might not really be fairies but it’s okay if I think there are. Cause nothing don’t exist if you don’t believe in it. And if you believe in it, then it’s real as sunshine. I believe in you, Dash.

While I didn't like the first two books AT ALL, I kinda enjoyed this one. But not because I'm getting more used to the series or anything but because this book was way different from the first 2.

At least in this installment we get to see a relationship growing between the hero and the heroine and in a way we can believe. In the first 2 books we had a very irrational and unbelievable link between the main characters. It just felt like a poor intent of recreating porn. Moreover the plot was even w

Having read the later books in this series many recommended this one, so I backed up and read it. Several characters that appear later in the series are in this one--briefly, i.e., Mercury Warrant (upcoming Mercury's War), Dawn (Dawn's Awakening), Tanner (Tanner's Scheme), etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed the beginning and most of the book, but toward the end it kinda dragged for me. Too much print on friendships, training, talking about the final battle, etc. I did not care for the need to dominate th
Love this book!! Definitely added to the favs shelf for me. Elizabeth is a very likable heroine esp in the breed world where sometimes the heroines can be a little over the top arguemenitive. And Dash, sigh, what can I say about that man, he is a wonderful alpha male who is very protective and caring. Normally not a prologue fan, but the one in this book with the letters actually had tears in my eyes and was very touching and a favorite part of the book for me.

I Loved this book, so much!!
Dash,Elizabeth and Cassie are FANTASTIC!!!
I cant wait to read the next one!

This is my fave so far!!
I want Dash to be my daddy *wink*

Awesome book if you havent read this series yet, you should so try it out!!

I love these Breed books. A lot of people were saying how this was one of their favorites from Lora Leigh and I had to agreed. It kind of overlaps the same time period as book #2, so you should read these in order. Would recommend this book.

Taking a break from this. Such an engaging story, absolutely addictive through the halfway point.
I cant say that it is less interesting as the story continues because I stopped around 70%.

My issues:
I have my own strange boundaries when it comes to erotic books. I rarely finish them. But I think I read them to discover what my boundaries are. In this book, I found myself a bit overwhelmed by Dash, the hero. He starts out as the best hero ever, but eventually his ego, control issues, and kinky

Lora Leigh veers a little from the formula of her Breeds books with this third installment. This time around, instead of a feline hero, we've got a Wolf Breed at the story's center. And that means a whole new bag of quirks for the relationship. Instead of a barb on his cock, Dash's dick makes a knot. And it's self lubricating (a handy tool when we get to the anal.)

But let me start with the actual plot. Dash is a military man with no family and no friends. He is nearly killed in the attack that w
So, I just finished the 3rd. book on the breeds series and I have to say that I did like it very much. Until now this one is the best one of the series.
A story that is well balanced, with all the right ingredients and above all very, very hot. This one is not for the weak of heart...
Loved the strong personality of Elizabeth and the heartbreaking loneliness of Dash.
Absolutely loved the tension between the two caracters until they consume their "mating" and as usual, Lora Leigh is a talented writ

OMGOODNESS!!! I give this book 7*******! This book was awesome from beginning to end. Very touching, gripping, heartfelt. & the love scenes HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But of course if ur reading Lora Leigh then that's a given. Dash is MY MAN!!! All of the main characters I love in this story. Especially Cassie. I've never read a book with a child character so well developed. All of these characters are 3 dimensional. There was never a dull moment for me in this book. I cared about Dash, elizabeth, ...more
Probably one of the better, if not the best story in the Breed series.

For one, the hero Dash, did not have many caveman moments which I find as a huge relief.

And I am a little bit perturbed that someone as young as Cassie can speak so eloquently. While I understand that as a Breed, she has somewhat an advanced level of intelligence, it just doesn’t add up right since she behaves just like any eight year old would. It’s like there are two Cassies, and I find the more eloquent Cassie very, very f

What can I say, I cried and cried.

Dash is out of the country in the military. He is almost dead and his sargeant is reading him letters. They come upon a letter from a little girl who is fascinated with him. The more she writes him the more his will to live increases. He finally gets a picture of Elizabeth and Cassie. That's all it took. He knew that Elizabeth would be his mate and Cassie his little girl. The last letter he would write is returned and brings him down. Their apartment had been b

Pretty good, but could have been better.

This book is part of the Wolf Breed series which is an offshoot of the Feline Breeds series. The Genetics Council used genetic experimentation to create humans with animal DNA, called Breeds. The Breeds were tortured, experimented upon and kept in captivity, but eventually escaped. The Council and other groups are trying to capture and/or kill them.

Lora Leigh, Lora Leigh you seem to be growing on me.

You know, I wasn't exactly sure about how much I would like the Breeds in the beginning. The fist two books in this series are compelling, but they still had something missing. Not really sure what that was, but I wasn't exactly the biggest fan of these sexy animal-like males.

That has changed with Elizabeth's Wolf. This story was equal parts sexy and enticing. Elizabeth was one of the stronger females that have been featured in the series thus

Better than the first two. Read more like a romantic suspense novel for awhile, instead of just jumping into some raunch. And I really loved Cassie, the little girl that everyone is trying to save. I also love the way that Cassie writes to Dash while he is overseas in the Middle East. He feels connected to this little girl through her letters, and begins to empathize with Elizabeth, the mother. Since this IS about shifters, he has some mystically strong feelings for her, and begins to suspect th ...more
So, I went and did the one thing I swore I would never do again. Somehow, Elizabeth’s Wolf by Lora Leigh ended up tempting me into peeking into her world of romance once again, something I swore to myself I would never ever do because most of the books I have picked up by Lora Leigh seems not to have worked for me that well. But, with all the glowing reviews from my fellow Goodreads friends for this title prodding me along the way, I ended up picking this up, hoping that this would be worth my t ...more

I immediately liked the introduction of Cassie's mother, Elizabeth, into Dash's life. Through the reading of pen pal letters, as Dash healed. I liked the instant connection [that will later justify the eventual mating:] between a wounded solider and a child's innocent view on life.

Dash is a solider hardened by a childhood where it was best he kept his head down and his mouth shut.

It all begins with a teacher who gives her second graders an opportunity to become pen pals with soldiers in Afghanistan. Little Cassie writes to Dash, a wolf-human who is nearly dying in the military hospital, and feeling apathetic. Her letters, filled with fear, motivate him to heal fast so he can go save Cassie and her mother, Elizabeth.

Nice set up, huh? A fine beginning, when Dash was in the hospital in Afghanistan. Then he comes to find them, and spends some time on their trail, for Elizabe
4-4.5 stars.

There was a LOT about this book that I really loved. Right from the beginning I liked the story line more than the previous 2 in the series. Very good premise, but I do feel like it lost me somewhere along the way. Wether that was the book itself, or my being distracted while I read, idk.

Continues to be hot and dirty, which I'm beginning to count on from Lora Leigh. :)

I love this series! And if you haven't jumped on the bandwagon to read this beyond smexy series, there is something really wrong with you. Dash is the sexy military soldier laid up hurt in a hospital bed. He has all but given up on living. When his Commander starts reading these sweet little letters to him from a young girl who pick his name as a pen pal, he finds some hope to keep living. When she goes on to describe her mother, Elizabeth,he KNOWS that she is and the little girl are something t ...more

There are 4000 plus reviews for this book, so I'm not going into a lot of detail here. I liked the book, my reasons are presented below.

4 stars for overall book and story. 5 stars for the HOT, panty-dropping breathtaking sex scenes, WOW!

This is a suspenseful story in the Breeds series, about Dash, an alpha war hero, who comes to the rescue of a mother and child being pursued by a sleazy drug dealing pedophile.

And what a fantasy protector he his, completely focused on Elizabeth and her
This the 3rd in the Breeds series, was the best one so far.

Dash Sinclair, Major in the Special Forces, receives a penpal letter from a little girl while he is recuperating in a hospital in Afghanistan. It gives him back his life. Cassie, 7, writes to him of her lonely frightened mother and Dash knows that the child and the woman are his.

They are on the run and 6 months later, Dash, having retired is searching for them. He finds them just in time to avert tragedy.

I freely admit that I am an addict to Lora Leigh Breed series and have been for some years. Recently, her books have not been so hot and a little repetitive, so unlike her earlier books. I decided to re-read all her earlier books to fill in the missing gaps that I had forgotten over the years. Glad I did. This book was great. This is Cassie's, Dash and Elizabeth's book. Cassie's features heavily in all the Breed books and it was good to refresh my memory of how it first started with Dash and Eli ...more
