Kiss of Heat
4 Stars

After spending a decade believing each other dead, Kane Tyler and Sherra Callahan are finally reunited. Nevertheless, the devastating events of the past have turned them against each other and they must put aside their differences in order to heal the wounds that threaten to tear them asunder.

Definitely lived up to my expectations. This was the book I was most looking forward to since beginning the series and I was not disappointed.

Kane and Sherra are extremely likeable characters and have an intense chemistry. Moreover, their tragic past contributes to the reader’s emotional involvement in the story. Kane is a supreme alpha even though he is not one of the Breed. I found his constant pissing contests with Taber amusing and his affection for Cassie endearing. Sherra is emotionally scarred and while I understand that she needed time to trust again, I could not fully accept her hostility and her stubborn and continued rejection of Kane once she realized that he never abandoned her. It also took her far too long to realize that she could not protect him from the unknown consequences of their mating. After all, the author emphasizes over and over that nature is all powerful and will always find a way.

Leigh’s writing is smooth and her dialogue engaging. The sex scenes were somewhat overdone and repetitious, and did not really contribute to either characterization or plot but they were definitely fun ;).

My one final nitpick pertains to all the Breed books so far and that is the lack of detail concerning the time the various characters spent at the Council labs. More information about how Kane and Sherra met and came together would have made their emotional and internal struggles even more engrossing.

Overall, an entertaining read and a sweet ending that makes it all worthwhile. ( )

I loved finally getting to read Sherra and Kane's story. Their history was so tragic that it was nice to see them finally come together. I also liked getting that little view into what some of Cassie's time was like while at the compound. The hinting at what could be Dawn's mate was intriguing as well. With Sherra and Kane though, I was glad to see some healing starting to happen after the pain they both suffered and I look forward to seeing them grow stronger as a couple in future books. ( )

Nice to finally get a chance to read one of the starter books to the series. A young Jonas and the setup for Dawn and Seth's storyline. A tiny Cassie. That the heat can repair sterilization surgeries. But with three of them pregnant - Merinnus, Roni and now Sheara - where are the littles? ( )

Kane Tyler, Sherra Callahan

I won't say this was my favorite Breed book. I understand the world is still being built and things are still being discovered but every is left so open. The angst between Sharra and Kane didn't keep me in the story at all. I found it very easy to put the book down and do other things. Though I will admit I liked their interactions... out of bed. I also loved little Cassie. She was just too cute. Overall I think I can only give this story 3 stars. ( )

For Sondrea and Terry. For hours of Internet tech support and for understanding just how computer dumb I could be. And as always, thank you for the friendship.
First words
Sherra stood silently in the shadows of the motel, watching carefully, her eyes narrowed as the nine men parted company and went to their respective rooms.

Book description
They've waited a decade to come together. Long years filled with unbearable pain, and soul-wrenching torment that have changed them both. Left wounds that have laid their souls bare. Wounds that stand one chance of healing — if only they could stop fighting each other long enough for the truth to work its healing balm.

Kane, a relentless warrior, lost more than his heart to Sherra in a night of mating passion that marked them both for life. But news of her death ripped his soul apart. For years he has fought to avenge the death of the woman he loved more than his own life, by revealing the deceit and cruelty of the Council that created the Breeds.

But Sherra didn't die. In a cruel and evil twist she was convinced by her sadistic handlers that the man she had given her body, heart and soul to had betrayed not only her, but the child she carried — and lost.

Amid the rapidly escalating violence against the Feline Breeds, Kane and Sherra learn that there's more to mating than just the "heat", just as there's more to love than just the sex…
