Wake A Sleeping Tiger
Bengal genetics, usually so fierce as to be labeled primal, was recessed so deep inside Judd that no hint of it can be found. A phenomena so rare it’s been notated only a few times. And there’s no way, it’s ...more
This is more of note session for me than a review..
I have many conflicting emotions. I liked that we were finally back to the simplicity of the Mating Heat and didn't focus too much on the spiritual duality and substitution from the previous books. I really liked the Navajo addition and lore when it was first introduced but I didn't like how convoluted it all became with it. I also find it annoying that a ton of minor characters featured in novellas or audio only books keep pop ...more
Oh, how much I have missed Breeds...
After Bengal's Quest, which was a complete mess, this one has a strong, nice story that reminded me of the good old Breeds' stories.
Cullen is the commander of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Division in Window Rock, New Mexico and he is a Bengal Breed. Unfortunately he likes things in order and he does not want to be a Breed. His denial results in recessed Breed ...more
This book was Cullen’s story. Cullen was formerly known as Judd when he was in the Labs and was Gideon’s identical twin but after escaping with Honor and Fawn and arriving at the Navajo Nation, he became Cullen and soon became the Commander of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Agency.
Chelsea has worked for him at the Agency for years as well as working for the “Unknown” and has been training to be a field operative since she was a teenager. However, Cull ...more
When book 31 of the breeds was finally announced, I was really excited- because it took me one step close to Cassie's book (after I realized it wasn't Cassie's book)!
The characters of this book are Judd and Chelsea.
Judd/Cullen is a recessed bengal breed, twin brother of Graeme/Gideon whom we met in the previous book.
Chelsea is Isabella's sister (Malachi's mate).
The pair has known each other for years. Judd was married to Chelsea's late cousin Lauren, and Che ...more
31 books and counting.Who knew that when I picked up a copy of Tempting the Beast several years ago that I would still be reading this series.From the first introduction to this highly erotic series when they first appeared in the now defunct Elloras Cave to the more mainstream publishing houses,this series has held my attention,sometimes good,sometimes not so good a few years back when I could bearly finish the books.This one however was not the case.From beginning to end,I was enga ...more
Chelsea has become an integral part of Cullen's life which is why her resignation hits him deep. It's been sai ...more
The book is the standard fight the mating heat fare of the early books with a little bit extra. Nothing like the great storylines from the years when the series first went mainstream; but not nearly as convoluted and confusing as recent books. After all these years you would think there would be something more.
The angst comes from the long ago death of Cullen's wife, and what bit of action there is comes from the criminal blood queen who 'blames' Chelsea for the death of her daugh ...more
Cullen Maverick also once known as "Judd" became a recessed Bengal Breed, a very rare circumstance. A recessed breed is rare, but their breed gentetics are also hidden so deep that it takes something deep to bring out the breed instincts of the animal and once it roars to life there is no stopping it. Cullen is the commander of the Covert Law Enforcement for the Navajo's, but there is one talent under him, t ...more
Chelsea Martinez has been in love with Cullen for as long as she can remember, and has even worked for him for the past four years. But he’s put off her need to do more than push papers ...more

I love getting lost in Lora Leigh's Breed world and WAKE A SLEEPING TIGER was a great new addition to the series. It had new twists and turns that added suspense to the story and kept me flipping the pages. This series never gets old and I always look forward to picking up a new release becau...more
Lora Leigh can always be counted on to turn up the heat. WAKE A SLEEPING TIGER was definitely hot and in many ways it fits in nicely with the classic stories in the Breeds series. I think my enjoyment of this book was hindered by the fact that this is so far into the series and I don’t think there’s a lot more left to explore that hasn’t been done before.
It is crazy to say we are at book 31 in the Breeds series. And crazy still that I’m still reading them. Here’s the thing. WAKE A S ...more
Lora Leigh has roared into a top notch book with her latest breed book, Wake a Sleeping Tiger.
In this suspenseful novel, we learn more about Cullen Maverick, the head of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Agency, and a recessed breed.
He stays recessed until Chelsea Martinez, with whom he has had a connection since she was a child, had had enough of his keeping her away from the job for which she has trained for many years, and decides to leave. As he waits for her to return and le ...more
Wake A Sleeping Tiger is book twenty two in the Breeds series by Lora Leigh. Now you can read the books as stand alone, but their is also a main plot-line that continues in each book even though we focus on one breed and his/her mate.
I had some trouble when I started this novel. It had been sometime since I read a book in the Breed ...more

The recessed breed is a novelty and none more so than Cullen formerly known as the lost breed, Judd. Cullen felt he had to suppress his breed genetics during his time in the labs in an effort to lessen the chances of causing pain to those around him. After all, his twin Gideon, had enough breed genetics inside him to be a Primal.
Fast forward to present day, Cullen is a run of the mill law enforcement officer just trying to ...more
