Official published review:

The spirit of giving

I purchased this book for the Breeds story, but I couldn’t help but fall in love with the other books along the way. Stroke of Enticement by Nalini Singh What’s up teach This sly cat loves to play, luckily his human mate loves to indulge him. The author put so much detail into this short story that it felt like a full length novel. I love the growth of the characters and that we got to visit with the pack again. There were so many layers to their love story and I throughly enjoyed peeling back each one. This book was a fantastic read and I can’t wait to see what happens next with this band of playful cats. 5 stars Sweet Dreams by Linda Winstead Jones Dreaming of a better life This author did a fantastic job of spinning her tale! I love the characters, even the annoying tie dyed hippie who seems to have the best luck. They seemed so real and the way they quickly grew together was the perfect holiday romance. The taste of danger, the woowoo, and the past added that extra bit of spice and kept me entertained until the HEA. This was a wonderful addition to the collection and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author. 5 stars Christmas Heat by Lora Leigh Finished with waiting I think this is one of my favorite couples to find love in the Breeds series. I love her sweet innocence! You can feel it in her joy of a snow storm, the loss of her friends, the joy of holiday giving, and the love of her man. And what a man he is. So long in denial, but when it matters most he will never let go. I love watching these two find their HEA, and I especially enjoyed watching the traitor meet their fate. This is a fantastic holiday story and I can’t wait to read it again next year. 5 star

5 stars


Lora Leigh 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 coexist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora finds her life filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.
