Book Description

Nov. 24 2003
Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment. One of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the "mating frenzy" locks them into a battle of sexual heat there is no escape from. Deception, blood, and the evil Genetics Council are hot on their trail. Callan will use his strength to try and save them both...and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that can't be missed June 28 2004
This is the first of many feline breed stories written by Lora Leigh, which details how Callan's group of felines have fled captivity to make a life for themselves. The heroine Merenius is a woman who is determined to get a story and assist in the feline cause.
This is a highly charged, highly erotic and highly sexual story. Not only did I like the sex scenes, I enjoyed the creative plot, the characters that I know I will be seeing later and will hopefully have their own story, and I also loved Callan and Merenius. I especially liked the fact that the heroine was not weak-kneed, but was strong and thought for herself. She didn't let anyone push her around (Yay, girl power!). I can't wait for the next feline story. This is a must read that CAN NOT be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Beginning to a wonderful series June 28 2004
Lora Leigh has created a captivating world within our own. Merinus Taylor is a reporter in search of an unbelievable story. It is a story of genetically enhanced warriors who have escaped from their creators. What she discovers is even more wild than her wildest imagination. She concentrates her focus on Callan Lyons, a man she is sexually drawn to like no other man she has every met. This world of breeds has many twists and turns and leaves the reader wanting to know more. The breeds love as deeply as they hate and the sexual eroticism of this book is not to be missed. A wonderful book to begin the breed feline series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intensely sensuous and emotionally charged May 25 2004
By Angel
Callan is a genetic experiment who escapes from his ruthless creators. Fighting not just for his freedom, but for his survival. Merinus is a reporter on the trail of an unbelievable story, but more than the story she seeks the man who's image she cannot forget.
What she finds is something no one could have predicted. Something the scientists failed to anticipate. For Callan is more than a man, more than an animal. He possess the keen intellect of man combined with the savage instincts of his animal DNA. And he will do whatever is necessary to both claim his mate and ensure her survival.
Tempting the Beast is my favorite of Lora Leigh's works... to date. It is an intensely sensuous and emotionally charged story. Callen and Merinus' passion sizzles across the pages in this riveting work. Their action-packed story of love and betrayal kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning.
Coming to terms with love and the vulnerability it brings is difficult for Callan and Merinus. Not only must these two independent, strong-willed people overcome the normal emotional obstacles all lovers face, but they must avoid capture while contending with the sexual pressures and surprises that result from man's meddling with Mother Nature. After reading Tempting the Beast, I have a whole new appreciation for the phrase "sexual tension".
This is one book you will definitely want to read again and again.

I'm not what you'd call a huge fan of paranormal stories - I don't go out of my way for vampires, shapeshifters, Carpathians or immortals - but every once in a while I indulge (mainly MaryJanice Davidson's wacky, sexy vamps and werewolves). If I gotta read this sort of story I prefer it to have some relationship to a possible reality. I always liked the show DARK ANGEL before it got canceled about genetically engineered soldiers created in secret labs in the not so distant future. Well Lora Leigh's "Breed" series are very much in that vein (but much more erotic!!). In Ms. Leigh's stories, a shadowy, ruthless, degenerate group called "The Council" operates secret labs where they do genetic experiments with the mission of creating ruthless and disposable soldiers. Their creations are part human and part animal due to the animal DNA used to create them for specific purposes. There are two "Breed" series (so far): one with feline DNA and one with wolf DNA. TEMPTING THE BEAST is the first book in the Feline Breeds series and it's a great read. BTW, her Wolf Breed stories are all ebooks (no pb releases so far) and are not available at Amazon (...)and so far I've read short story WOLF'S HOPE (the first in the series) and her most recent, ELIZABETH'S WOLF (which was awesome!).
Reporter Merinus Tyler wants to expose the Council for the disgrace they are, feeling that if the American public knew what they were doing, they would be outraged and take the "Breeds" to their hearts. Callan Lyons, one of the few breeds ever to escape the Council is not so sure. He's survived by his cunning and animal instincts and the last thing he wants is a reporter snooping around and exposing him (and his pride) to danger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Start to an Incredible Series Feb. 15 2004
Lora Leigh has a created a world in which genetic experiments have introduced humans with animal dna... these humans have some of the characteristics of the animals they share dna with.
They were experimented on and kept locked in laboratories.
Tempting the Beast is the first of the Feline Books this is the Story of Callan Lyons a Feline breed fighting for his freedom and the survival of his pride.. Callan and a few others had managed to escape their prison. Trying to live with out detection- along comes Merinus a reporter. Through distrust comes love but with the Genetics Council hot on their trail.. which they live long enough to embrace it.....
If you have never ever read Lora Leigh before here is an author with extraordinary talent who writes with passion and emotion.
Her books will make you run through a gumut of emotions.
TEMPTING THE BEAST is erotic sensual and passionate with strong characters that remain in your mind longer after you have read the last chapter.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disjointed
While the plot was interesting, the book, I felt needed more depth. It seemed as though the author rushed through the story lines to get to the sex scenes. Read more
