Featured Couple: Lance (Human) & Harmony (Lion)

The book is fully connected with the previous book “Megan's Mark”. This is the second book where the Breed is the female main character, while the male main character is human.

Harmony Lancaster, also known by the nickname Death, is a Lion Breed who has been an assassin since she escaped from the labs many years ago. Everybody is looking for her: Breeds, Jonas Wyatt, human authorities, the Council, Dane (Leo's son) etc.

Death a.k.a. Harmony meets her mate, Sheriff Lance Jacobs

These two were definitely not looking for love. Harmony is an assassin for hire and for the hell of it, She kills adults who abuse children for fun and is wanted by the Genetics Council, by the Breeds for breaking breed laws, and by the supremecist groups against Breeds. She knows that one day her haters will eventually catch up with her and kill her.

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

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

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
At first, I considered giving this book a 5-star rating, just because of Jonas... Man, that´s one Breed I´d 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 hasn´t published it ...more

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

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

Years ago I stopped at book 12, and now I'm re-reading those book so I can pick back up with book 13. Even though I don't remember much about the couples, I'm finding now I'm much more interested in the breed story than the H/h. I enjoy erotic books, but personally I'm finding the sex scenes and inner dialog too drawn out. However....I do want to know how the breed storyline I will continue.

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 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.
Harmony is a rock-star!! She is just the type of strong character you love and continues to hold her own even after finding her mate! Lance is strong and dominate but not over shadowing! Lots of steam here!! An office sex scene to die for!! Really digging the new turn in the breeds books!!

Highly recommend ! ENJOY !!!

I think this Breeds novel was one of the best ones yet! I wasn't sure at first because I wasn't all fired up about Lance. But it was seriously hot and freaking excellent. Harmony was a great addition to the feline Breeds and I loved her. Great, sexy read!

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

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 enjoyed this book and could not put it down. We learn more about the Breeds and how they came to be. It was none stop adventure and I was not sure if they would get their happily ever after ending. Harmony's Way gives readers a chance to consider what happens when a mate has to go on without their mate.

The heroine, Harmony jump out at me right off. From the beginning, she reveals a feminine side, yet she was trained to kill. What makes her different from the Genetic Council is she has

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 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.

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

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.
