He was a shadow, ever shifting and insinuating, able to blend in everywhere and anywhere. The elusive ideal conceived and created by the Genetics Council, he went by just as many names as he had identities—the last one being Gideon.
Now calling himself Graeme, he hides in plain sight, terrifyingly close to his goal. A rogue Bengal Breed, he has loyalties to no one but himself. And he has a need for vengeance that surges hot and swift through his veins.
Graeme plans to exact an extreme and ruthless vendetta against those who wronged him—Breed and human alike. All will suffer his wrath: those who created him, those who pretended to love him, and those who betrayed him.
That includes the one at the center of it all: a seductive, enigmatic woman helpless against the man whose desire is just as desperate as his need to destroy.
And he’s on her scent…
Oh how I’ve missed the Breeds. As the 13th full installment in the series, Bengal’s Quest answered a lot of questions I’d been pondering as the series progressed. Gideon is a character we’d heard mention of in earlier books but we finally get to hear his story in this book and boy is it a good one. Gideon, who now goes by the name Graeme, is a primal Bengal breed with an obsession for Cat, the woman he’s cared for ever since she was only four days old and he was just eleven. Their experiences in the labs have turned them into who they are now and shaped their behaviors. Cat has believed that she was abandoned by Graeme when she was twelve years old and that he has hated her ever since for her part in attempting to save his life, forcing him into something he wasn’t ready for, but Graeme never truly abandoned her nor has he ever hated her. He’s done everything in his power to protect the girl he’s called his from infancy while she becomes the woman he needs to tame the beast within him.
In this installment we experience deceit, misdirection, and suspected betrayal. There are so many twists and turns that your head is spinning in wonder over what is going to come next. The main characters are a worthy hero and heroine duo and the ending is an unexpected surprise. Lora Leigh once again provides an exciting adventure in the world of the Breeds that you don’t want’t to miss.
Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared. Lora’s family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora’s life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.
