Breeds, book ten
ebook, 41 pages
Published 2002 by Ellora's Cave
Hope believed Wolfe was dead, but he was only waiting for the right time to claim her. The scientist who created him, Hope's mother, has forced his hand. She wants her creation back, and she wants any children he may breed on her daughter.
He is a man whose DNA was altered, infused with the genetic code of the wolf. His unique genetic makeup has created a male unlike any other and will make itself known in the most surprising ways. Now Hope must convince her mate she hasn't betrayed him, and they must defeat the plans of a scientist gone mad.
Hope and Wolfe have quite the history. Hope's mother has been trying to breed her with Wolf since she was about seventeen. Wolfe marked her then, made her his, but he did no more than that. Then he was killed. Or so Hope thought.
It's been six years since he disappeared from her life. Six years of complete torture for her body while it ached to be taken by her mate. Now, suddenly, he's back.
The first part of this story either skipped over or completely left out everything that I actually wanted to read. The claiming. The moment Wolfe was supposedly killed. The time in between Wolfe's abduction of Hope and her subsequent awakening in the cabin. I got none of it. Where we do pick up, however, was filled with surprises for me. I didn't expect Wolfe to be so wary and aggressive towards Hope. He had quite a serious case of paranoia happening there. Not that it isn't entirely understandable.
And what a way to find out your virginity had been stolen. Ouch. Biggest mindfuck though was the tease for Jacob and Faith at the end. Now I gotta go hunt down their book... and maybe the other... um... nineteen. (Dayumm!) 3 out of 5 stars.
