“Wake a Sleeping Tiger” is another fantastic book from author Lora Leigh as she once again returns to the mysterious world of her Breeds.
There is no way to express just how much I loved this book. Out of all the alpha heroes that populate this series I think Cullen was one of the more intense characters. He's one of the rare Bengal Breeds and a twin to the feared Gideon / Graeme. Up until now everyone believed that Cullen's tiger DNA must be recessive, but his Primal had just been taking a very long nap while patiently waiting until it was time to claim his mate. Chelsea was one of most kick arse heroines in the series. She wasn't about to let Cullen put her in a protective box of any kind. This time around the big bad kitty had to accept his mate as an equal.
This book was loaded with the hottest romance, dirtiest sex and breathe stealing suspense. Once again, Lora Leigh managed to keep me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next and then left me hungry for more. As usual, the story building was intricate with myriad twists and super shocker surprises that totally blew my mind. There was the most wonderful and effortless humor between some of the characters, especially Cullen and his overprotective / sometimes crazy big brother, Graeme. As with the last three books this one is set within the Window Rock thread and for those of us long time readers this is an important book in the series. I always recommend new readers should start at the beginning of this amazing series so they don't miss anything. This time I'm thinking it could be easily understood just by going with the previous three books. Although, every single book in this series is amazing.
I enjoyed this story so much! I'm already looking forward to the next fabulous chapter in the Breeds series.
When readers of dark romance and unbridled desire want to be satisfied, they turn to #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and her “powerful and highly erotic” (Fresh Fiction) Breed novels. Now a Breed hides in the world of man—until a woman arouses the amused and wildly carnal animal within...
Once, he was Judd—Bengal Breed and brother to the notorious fugitive Gideon.
After Gideon disappeared, Judd was experimented on until his tortured body knew nothing but agony.
Now he is Cullen Maverick, serving as the commander of the Navajo Covert Law Enforcement Agency in the small community of Window Rock, Arizona. Despite his genetics, Cullen is able to pass as human because his Bengal traits are recessed. He lacks the ability to smell the emotions, bonds and fears that other Breeds take for granted. And he remains tormented that he wasn’t able to mate the woman he loved—at the cost of her life.
He’s no longer a Breed, merely a man. . . or so he thinks. But his tiger is about to be awakened by the one woman destined to be his—Chelsea Martinez. And their world will never be the same...
