A reasonable woman couldn't think otherwise, especially in the presence of Cabal St. Lawrence, a spectacularly muscled specimen of the Bengal breed.

This book was my introduction to Lora Leigh's breed novels. While I found the constant sex scenes to be a bit repetitious, Leigh's characterization of Cabal, a Bengal Breed, was fascinating and captivating. On the other hand, Cabal's mate, Cassa, the hard nosed female reporter, seemed a bit too cliched for my taste.

The story kept my interest by delving into the series story line and it's over arching plot while maintaining a good focus the immediate story between Cabal and Cassa. Leigh uses the science fiction elements to very good effect, neither overwhelming the story nor burying it. She infused the story with enough to make it interesting.

Two things that stood out: Leigh's overuse of a small number of catch phrases ("He bit out the words" or "he was good, damned good") caused me to wince a number of times. I found these types of phrases distracting. A nit for sure, and something most readers may over look.

The second was the repetitiousness of the sex scenes. At times I wasn't sure if this book could be classified as hard erotica or romance. While I appreciated Leigh's attempt to create a primitive, feral relationship between Cassa and Cabal, I believed she missed the mark. A lot of readers will skim over these sections meaning that a quarter of the book does not advance the story. The erotica could have been cut in half and the story would have survived just fine. ( )

lots of information, subplots while keeping main storyline with Cabal & Cassa good to read, as always takes them too long to get there head straight

Cassa Hawkins has always been supportive of breeds and their rights, and being a journalist has always tried to put them in the positive light as much as possible. However the breed's have never made it easy for her, and for years she has resisted Cabal, who if he decided to claim her she would be his mate. Having to suffer with the hormone treatments to regulate the symptoms of the heat, the past several years haven't been easy on her especially when seeing him with countless women. So when Cabal decides to claim her as his mate now, Cassa resists because she doesn't want to be part of a 'harem' of women, only now not only is their danger to her heart there is also danger circling around her when their lives are threatened, and they must work together if they want to get to the bottom of what is really going on...Bengal's Heart is the 19th in the Breeds series. There are some books in this series that I have like more or less than others, but I truly enjoyed reading Bengal's Heart. There was a lot of steamy scenes that could singe your eyebrows if you're not careful, however there was also focus on the romantic relationship between Cabal and Cassa which I enjoyed even more. The interaction between these two could be intense but also make a reader laugh. I loved the humor in this story that the author portrayed, and I loved the plot, never a dull moment would sum it up pretty nicely. One of my other favorite aspects to the book was that there was a mystery to be solved, and I have always had a weakness for a good mystery, so there were multiple reasons that I enjoyed Bengals Heart. Overall an enjoyable read, with exciting scenes and deep connection between the characters and a few steamy scenes makes for a Amazing Romance that only Lora Leigh can produce. ( )

I enjoy the drama of these books so much. Cabal's mate is up to her eyeballs in the current drama the Breeds are trying to contain. Another Breed keeping secrets from his mate though, and I don't know why but it annoys me so much. It was action packed, I liked seeing some of the other Breeds we've come to meet like Dog and Brim, and I was intrigued by the introduction to the primal phenomenon. ( )

Great continuation with the story line. Cool that Cabal's tiger aspect shows up with stripes on his face too. Would like to get to Jonas story though. ( )

“I'm calling in a favor," she stated.

Silence filled the line. She could almost feel the intractable Breed mulling over possibilities and wondering which favor she would call.

"You have a surplus," he finally sighed. "Will it get me killed?"

She almost grinned at that. She couldn't imagine Mordecai contemplating death, let alone worrying if it would affect him.

"I guess anything is possible," she mused. "You backing out?"

He grunted at that. "Life's too long sometimes anyway.” — 0 likes
