They are a new breed, a new race. Engineered rather than born, trained rather than raised, and their unique genetics have created more than one surprise...

Jacob left Faith six years before, unaware that the mark he left on her also left her in an agony of sexual heat that never dimmed. Now Jacob and Faith are together again, but surprises lurk around every corner and dang

I´m afraid this was the most disappointing book in the series. :(

I didn´t like either Jacob or Faith. I just couldn´t understand his reasoning for leaving her and his continuing refusal to admit he loved her. Completely ilogical, IMHO. Faith was a complete mess too, but I guess I could blame her raging hormones for that. NOT! She was warned about the effects of caffeine and alcohol when combined with the mating heat, but went out of the way to find the nearest bar and pump coffee and beer into h

Wolf Breeds 3
Featured Couple: Jacob (Wolf) & Faith (Wolf)

The first book in which both of the main characters are Breeds.

In that hateful lab where Hope’s mother is the top researcher, 3 wolves (Wolfe, Jacob and Aiden) are trying to survive. Faith is Aiden’s little sister. The evil scientists give young Faith a few aphrodisiacs and throw her to Jacob demanding to breed her for the good of science. Apparently Faith is his true mate and Jacob cannot stop himself. A huge explosion in the la
For the most part I enjoy this series, but this book? I can't do it any more. I got to page 162, and there's still no plot. We just keep living the same scene over and over again.

"You left me for six years!"
"I did it for you. Now say you're mine."

Lots of sex.

"I lived without you for six years, I don't need you."
"Damn you, you're mine"

Lots of sex.

"Blah, blah, blah"
"Blah, blah."

Lots of sex.

And again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again.

Faith was a sympathetic heroine for about 10 pages, and then I couldn't stand her. Poor Jacob felt like he had used her badly when she was 18 and everytime he saw her after he sensed fear - which as a Breed he can - so he stayed away. So when they are brought together again and he lets her know why he was away for so long (6 years), she's hot, then cold, then hot, then cold. Poor Jacob! You suffered, he suffered. She runs around like people aren't trying to kill Breeds in the same town she is in ...more

Couldn't finish the book. Starting with my complete dislike of Jacob and his reasons for cowardly leaving, and ending with the double standards regarding jake and Faith. So it is alright for Jacob to go around and get laid, but God forbid Faith even look at another man. It is absolutely sickening, and a reason why I am surprised to see these double standards outside of a Harlequin book.

I love hearing about Wolfe and Hope. Wolfe has been on his own so long he does know how to handle his mate. Hope doesn't let him get away with much. Jacob is the usual clueless male thinking that since Faith is small and delicate looking that she can't handle the sex needs that he has. Faith has been waiting so long of Jacob that she is not sure if she wants to be with him or stay independent. I guess they are going to have to work things out soon. I had forgotten that the Council had a way to m ...more

I liked Jacob & Faith's story but it got a bit much of ......creaming, licking, sucking....that after a while I began skipping the sex scenes.

This book was such a refreshment from its predecessor and I'm so very thankful for that! It had passion and tension and the main characters had a history with each other, they didn't just met and fell madly in a mess of lust and love. Faith is probably one of my favorites female characters, probably the best one since Sherra and that is saying something, because there were some very good and wicked ladies until this book. Jacob was so full of it and Faith told him to suck it up and then they did ...more
Six years ago, the Lab technicians went so far as to pump Faith full of aphrodisiac and offered her to Jacob on a silver platter. Since she was his destined mate, he couldn't help himself, but the explosion rocking the labs put a stop to the more or less amorous intentions, and Jacob disappeared.

Jacob's lived with self-disgust ever since, certain he's hurt her, convinced Faith now feared him. He returned briefly six months ago to help Wolfe in getting his mate and promptly disappeared again...He

Six years with out her mate Jacob by her to help her through her heat.

Jacob's Faith is a new form of torture...I wish I could take a real gun and shoot the imaginary heroine out of her pathetic, miserable life, right fucking now. She's a real pain, a stupid, childish one too.

I honestly don't care about the characters or their relationship or the story, because frankly, there's no story. All they ever do from start to finish (prologue excluded) is argue and argue, and argue. And then they have sex. And then they argue again. The pattern continues from the first ch

almost no story. more sex than anything. found myself skipping to find the story. The only redeeming part is the new Breeds it reveals. I love the new ones. want more information about them. Also feels like this is a new story. They say there are no wolf offspring born naturally in this story. But Dash and Elizabeth had a child naturally in Elizabeth's Wolf . So this confused. Not sure if they just mean the Wolf Breeds from Wolf's pack having an issue. But should have been more clear instead ...more

I was really excited for their story when we met them previously.. but as you can tell, I couldn't get through this book! I put it down for several months.. and it kept glaring at me, and I want to continue in the series, so I picked it up today to finish, I ended up skimming a lot of it *sigh*
Um... wtf:

So... I love the Breed series but... the inconsistencies throughout the series are starting to become a distraction. I point the finger to her editors who should be catching these things for her while Lora focuses on story development. I also think there's a definitive diference between books published by Elora and the others... her Elora books have less satisfying plots, and (dare I say) too much sex. But I still can't stop reading the series - I love me some Breeds.

It was ok. I didn't really like the characters or the story. A lot less romantic than her other books. It was pretty much a sexathon. I will continue the seriesbut so far these wolf breeds are tossers.

I really liked this one as well, even though there were a few moments in the book that made me side eye the characters and the book itself.

This one deals with Faith who is an enforcer, years before when in the labs she was made the mate of Jacob in a bid by the scientist to get the Breeds to actually be able to become pregnant. Faith is the siste

This was an interesting novel to read, for me anyways.  Mostly because it was nothing like I imagined it would be.  I had gotten a little sneak peek into this novel from a previous one and from my take on that one I'd say that it was intriguing.  It seems that Jacob was threatening to physically harm her in some way and that she was scared of him.  However, what I read was far from that and it was extremely delightful to read.  Faith is by far my favorite wolf Breed so far and it's going to take ...more
To expand their spy's information on breed mating, the council's Mexican lab has plans for their wolf pack. Delia Bainsmith orders Jacob to mate their sole female, Faith, after over dosing her with aphrodisiacs and locking her in Jacob's cage. Meanwhile, Wolfe is ordered to mate Hope awhile Faith's brother Aiden undergoes a different torture under Bainsmith's direction.

Faith had a crush on Jacob as long as the pack could remember and he didn't want to do this. He couldn't let her be handed to t
I'm going to try very hard NOT to shred this book too badly, but I do have to say that I really hope the formula and pattern of these books change or else I'm going to get REALLY bored. I'm only on book #11 and I feel like I am reading the same book over and over and over again. Totally hot, zero plot. That's my new catch phrase for when a book really is two stars but I have elevated it to three because of the hot sex scenes. And there was a pretty good description going on there of Faith.

This was an emotional ride!

The second in the Wolf Breeds series, this is Jacob and Faith's story. They obviously didn't see things the same way when Jacob left Faith 6 years before, to protect her and because he thought he hurt her, while Faith felt abandoned and rejected.

The new-and-improved Faith shocked Jacob to the core, she's now badass, fiery, but still lusciously tempting. Since they were mated, they just couldn't resist each other's touch. They really matched well, this is not a case of

It was okay. I noticed that the dialog of a scene near the beginning of the book was basically repeated word for word towards the end of the book. That's not just sloppy editing, it's completely lazy.

I have to say, I liked Dash Sinclair, ever since then I have been just unimpressed with the wolf breeds. They seem surly and growly and not in a good way. All uptight and clueless, and they have this tendency to be cruel.. As such, I never warmed up to Jacob at all. He reminded me of this boyfri
Ugh, this book was very disappointing and frustrating. I had little sympathy for the two main characters, especially Jacob.

If I were Faith I probably would have no patience for Jacobs crap. She stays sassy for a long time, which I liked, but then she caves. I felt that was kind of unrealistic. Jacobsen her for six years, and is totally misguided in his beliefs.

Jacob pretty much annoyed me throughout the whole book. His whole tortured soul attitude wasn't convincing. And his anger towards Faith w

Book #11 in the Breeds series

This was almost a repeat of Wolfe's Hope, but with more content & without the sexual torture. The plot was almost non-existent & the sex was extremely repetitive. To the point, where I ended up skipping through the last 1/4 of the book because it was just another boring sex scene. The ending was nothing but a set up for the next book, Aiden's Charity.

This book was filled with lots of hot steamy sex, conflict between Jacob and Faith, more sex, and continued investigation into the Labs. Of course the alpha male struggled with guilt, feeling like he had lack of control around Faith, and his belief that Faith was fragile. Faith is pretty much the opposite of delicate. She is a kick ass, beer drinking,independant, take charge of living her own life; including taking care of her own sexual needs. I like how Faith's constant strong willed behavior ...more

I've read several other of this series and have enjoyed them all. This one was just too much. Too much revenge, too much guilt, too much anger and rancor between Jacob and Faith. While I can understand some of it on Faith's part, it goes on for far too long and poisons the story. Both are strong characters, neither willing to give an inch, but Faith is determined to make Jacob pay, and pay, and pay some more for the years that they have been separated.

As I said, I can understand the why of it, t

I really enjoyed this book it was better than the short novella and then Tanner's book. My only complaint is that I want more action. I want to know more about what is going on overall. Faith was a very likable female in the series. I liked that she became strong and didn't act dumb she just did everything I expected her to do being hurt by her mate.

Very good read I hope we get many more like this one. I really enjoy breed and breed books I feel they are some of the best. and Why can't the wolf

I never before had to just skim through a book, but a 4th of the way through I just couldn't take anymore. Somebody needs to explain to Ms. Leigh that a storyline needs to accompany all of the sex scenes. There was nothing to the characters of Jacob and Faith, no substance at all. This book was filled with 300 pages sex scenes that repeated the same dialog and description as the last. It wasn't until 80% through the book that the storyline came into play.

I think this has to be one of my favorites of the series and that is in a large part to Faith. I love how much sass she had, she was not going to put up with Jacob's shit at all!! The battles between them were so much fun, especially when they were negotiating the coffee and sex deal. I was laughing so hard. Then when she insinuated that he wasn't keeping up his end of the deal in front of his men, that was priceless. All in all another fun sexy romp with the breeds!!

This book fell into the less plot/more hot category.

Jacob and Faith were very, very stubborn. I really liked Faith's defiance. After Jacob mated her 6 years ago and left her, she made him work for their time together. She had lots of issues do deal with in the wake of the mating effects. She wasn't the shy, timid 17 year old he once new. Jacob had to come to terms with what he did to Faith. But, really the whole book was just about sex.....
