(This is only for the story Wolve's Hope by Lora Leigh)

Hope’s mother in the scientist who is performing experiments on Wolve before the Breeds were set free. The evil scientist discovered that her 17 years old Hope is Wolve’s true mate. Thus, she used her daughter as a lab rat to try and make Wolve breed on her. Wolve bit and marked Hope, but did not do anything else with her.
The book starts 6 years after the escape of Wolve who abandon Hope. Now he is back, he has kidnapped Hope and he is tortu

Judging by Lora Leigh's contribution (for her Breed series) I would never have thought this anthology could be bad, but I stood corrected yesterday when I read the other three stories and remained stock still in my comfy chair, staring at the pages with a disgusted/confused frown on my face.

Let's start at the beginning.

Sherri L. King's Moon Lust was amateurish in tone, style, and use of the language. The end result: the story was so boring and "frigid" I couldn't wait for it to end.

1. Moon Lust by Sherri L. King. Brianna's uncle dies and makes her promise to see Russia because he was never able to go back home. Well, she goes on a tour of an old growth forest, gets lost, falls and is rescued by a Russian werewolf. Now they have to see if she is able to handle who/what he is. Very sweet story.

2. Lunewulf: Pack Law by Lorie O'Clare. Sophie has 3 mates chosen for her including Nik who she has always had a crush on since High School. Nik mates with her first becomin

Anthologies aren't my thing as there simply isn't enough pages per story to fully develop anything so stories are rushed and unfulfilling. This one is no different. I read this simply because it had a moon on the cover and was less than 200 pages (for a challenge of course). Unfortunately none of the stories were very good and basically consisted of sex for the sake of sex since the plots were lacking any substance. I've read all of these authors full length novels and enjoyed their tales.

1. Sherri L. King's story was so stupid. Sorry. Girl halls down a mountain in Russia, falls for a guy in a cabin who helps her, has lots of sex. Mated, the end. OOOOOkkkk! No spoilers, don't tell me you didn't see that coming. Names aren't even important. Corny sex stuff. 40 pgs

2. Lori O'Clare - GOOD GOD! I laughed my a** off. All it is is a short story of a werewolf girl who has to be mated to 3 men, because her grandma said. I wish my grandma was that cool! LOL! anyway, her main dude decides s

I only read Lora Leigh's story Wolfe's Hope. My first exposure to Leigh. I was actually impressed, I'm not into erotica really but she's a great writer. This one was short and pretty cut and dry. Wolfe was created in a lab with human and wolf DNA. The evil scientist who created him gave him her daughter because she wants to study his progeny. He marked hope as his mate, but never made love to her. Eventually, he escaped the lab. Six years later, he comes looking for hope because he thinks that s ...more

didn't like this one as much as other breeds stories -it was extremely short, even for an anthology and Wolfe was pretty much a dick for most it. Big fan of breed stories but could have past this one up, and I hate saying that...

Sherri L. King „Moon Lust“ (Moon Lust #1)
Die Geschichte war sehr oberflächlich und es ging mal wieder nur um das eine. Die Protagonistin hat alles in ihrem Leben verloren, was ihr lieb war. Wie praktisch um einen Neuanfang zu machen. Als sie nach Russland aufbricht (wegen des letzter Wunsch ihres Onkels), weiß sie allerdings nicht, dass sie nicht mehr zurückkehren wird. Für den Leser war es sowas von 'mit dem Zaunpfahl vor den Ko

Wolfe's Hope by Lora Leigh

This isn't exactly a novella that I wanted to read, but that I'm glad that I did read.  I'm quite honestly getting tired of all the Feline Breed novels.  I see more of them than anything else at this point and it’s not a good thing.  This novella brought the Wolf Breeds to light and for this I'm very thankful for.  Hopefully there's going to be more novels based on this species, because at this point in time I'm starting to get pretty bored with Lora Leigh's novels.  S

"Wolfe's Hope" by Lora Leigh is the 10th book in her Breeds story. It is a short story that starts when Hope is 17 and forced to mate with Wolfe by her bitch evil mother. The lab was set on fire and Hope was lead to believe Wolfe was dead so for 6 years she lived in a hell of grief and arousal, but when Wolfe shows up he is furious with her and she doesn't know why.

"Moon Lust" by Sherri L. King is about an American tourist who is in the forest of Russia who ends up injured. Her rescuer is a Ivan

Moon Lust: 2 Stars. This is a very short read. The relationship with Ivan & Brianna went from wounded gal from the woods to life mate. It just seemed to be a short story full of whole lotta random sex.

Pack Law: 2 Stars. This story involves a very young female named Sophie. She finally receives word of who her three mates will be and cannot wait to sleep with all of them. The language was a bit bothersome. The lack of the pursuit of a relationship was irritating. She just seemed very childis

Disappointed in the Lora Leigh's Breeds story, but loved the rest. I bought this book purely for Hope's and Wolfe's story, as this being the start of the Wolf Breed series, and I wanted to see how the Wolf Breeds came out of the labs and survived and obviously how Hope and Wolfe "got together". I realised that this was a short story and it did indeed fill in some of the gaps but not all and with Hope being tied to a bed for 90% of this story, it left me wanting a lot more and Lora could have don ...more

This was not a great book.
Four stories in one book and the first two were really bad.

Moon Lust was about an overweight unattractive woman who gets rescued/kidnapped by a Psychopath wolf with a thick Russian accent. It makes it seem that she stays with him because she can't do any worse.

Pack Law was immature in both dialoge and plot.

Running Mate I didn't mind, it was so much better than the first two. But the whole turning into a dog thing and having "pups" doesn't do much for me.

I havent read the others but one but I will at a later time but I only read Lora Leighs story Wolfe's Hope, and it was a very fast read but long story short, Wolfe survived the explosives he set in the labs and saved his pack and wanted to go back for Hope but never did until 6 years later after being set up by Hopes mother to bring in out in the open by sending him photos of Hope having men having sex with her. Wolfe kidnaps Hope in getting answers about her mother but Hope was being used as we ...more

This review is for Lora Leigh's "Breed" story "Wolfe's Hope". I have read every one of the "Breed" books and have reread a lot of them but not this one. I didn't like this story at all. But that's JMHO! I know others that liked it but I ain't one of them.. All I could think was I wanted to hit Wolfe upside the head more than once and wanted Hope would grow a "backbone".

I have not read the other stories in this book but only because they are both part of series by the authors and I haven't read t
First story was very short (by Sherri L. King) with an interesting version of shifters. i would read her again. Rest of the book was rather dull. I only read these anthologies to test different authors, but the stories are usually not very satisfying, being crammed into such short reads. Wolfe's Hope by Lora Leigh is one of the Breeds, which is a series I do enjoy.

I wasn't bowled over by any of these stories. The LL story was a necessary read to continue the Breeds series, but the whole story was about Wolfe using sex and dominance to get Hope to admit she betrayed him. I didn't find any romance in it at all. The other three stories were about the same, and I pretty much skimmed them.

Probably a 2 1/2. I know being short stories they had to focus on the steamy steamy, but some more plot would have been nice. Also, I'm probably showing a bit of my vanilla side, but it would have been nice had just 1 of the stories not involved anal. Perhaps the cover could have showed the guy's ass as a heads up.

I really enjoyed most of the stories in this anthology, with the exception of Pack Law. I didn't like that Sophie was referred to as "Bitch" even though they were using it in the actual sense of the word. It just didn't sit right. I also felt really bad for the other 2 mates. It was my first by that author, and probably my last.

Four short stories labeled as "romantica" I found myself wondering where the romance was. I understand short stories are often lacking in the build up and character development, but some of these left me wondering how you can claim romance when you are sharing you love with other men or worse using sex as torture.
Aug 14, 2010 rated it really liked it
A great erotic read with lots of really good stort stories. Don't expect to we wowed by the stories cause it's really just sex, sex and more sex. My favourite was Jaci Burton's story despite one scene that was a bit on the weird side. It was a quick fun read but look elesewhere if you want romance with your erotica.

This is a collection of several erotic-ish Paranormal Romance shorts from different authors of shiftchanger series. They were predictable and not really noteworthy enough to intrigue you into reading more of the series unless you already have - such as the Lora Leigh Breeds series. Several scenes of backdoor action here.

All in all this was an interesting anthology. Even though the 1st story (the Russian mountains 3) wasn't up to my liking, this book averaged to be a 4. That's because the last 2 stories were like 5's to me. The 2nd story (pack law requiring females to mate w/3 males 3.5) was better the 1st, slightly.

Jaci Burton's Devlin Dynasty: Running Mate was good!!! I want to read more!

Sherri King's Moon Lust was unimpressive.

Lora Leigh's Wolfe's Hope (Breeds, 10) was very disappointing. I can't believe I waited three months to get this book...

Lorie O'Clare's Pack Law (Lunewolf, ?) had lots of sex, but the writing is too primitive, simplistic...

I don't often read all the stories in an anthology, but in this one all of the stories were good. They were fun, hot stories full of wild sex, each one around 50 pages so the storyline happened very fast.
