Book 5 in the series introduces, Kiowa, our first coyote breed. When there is a kidnapping attempt on the president's daughter (Amanda), Kiowa steps in to help her. He has to take her to a different location for her safety. To stop her from screaming, he kisses her and starts the 'heat.' As the scientists at Sanctuary are examining Amanda, they do find out some information about the hormones. Kiowa's treatment of Amanda is sweet and it was fun reading as the effects of the 'heat' bring them closer. Cassie is back briefly and we find out a bit more about her. Even reading this the 2nd time makes me smile. I enjoyed this one - again!

"Soul Deep" was ok. Not one of Leigh's better stories, but if you enjoy love scenes you will have PLENTY of them to choose from in this novel. However, the story feels incomplete and a bit rushed, although some of Kiowa's (a Native American Coyote breed) backstory is touching. Amanda (his future mate, a non-breed) is the President's daughter, and the president is trying to pass a Breed Law into effect, so they can live like everyone else. Of course, there are detractors, and the book starts off with Amanda's attempted kidnapping from some of them. Good beginning, but starts to accelerate from there, and unfortunately, doesn't fill in some of the blanks as the book goes along. Still, it doesn't detract from the rest of the Breed series. I intend to read them all!

This read almost like a short story, only 194 pages. I really enjoy the earlier breed books because the mating heat and it's effects are a mystery to the Breeds. Amanda has been kidnapped, and has both arms and legs bound when she awakens in terror. When she attempts to scream, Kiowa kisses her to silence her but unknowingly unleashes the mating hormone. OMG I think he would have taken her while she was still tied up if they hadn't been interrupted...The effects of the mating heat on Amanda and Kiowa were the most intense of any other couples from previous breed books, and the scene in the back seat of the jeep had me laughing out loud as the driver has to pull over and get out of the car because these two didn't care that they had an audience. LOL This book was very steamy. There was a sound plot, good character development and a happy ending for a Coyote that had been raised without knowing love.

And last year, I won Soul Deep from Diane from Book of Secrets The first thing I hit was chapter 1 (well, duh), which happened to be written like a prologue, completely in italics and everything. The information was useful though, if not a bit dry and mislabeled. Seriously? I was a bit apprehensive. Later I discovered even though Soul Deep was the first of the Coyote series, it wasn’t the first of the ENTIRE Breed series. So the upfront information really helped and made Soul Deep a standalone story. Okay… my review might sound a little harsh, but I’m telling you, I really liked this story (4 out of 5 stars). It was just what I was looking for when I went in search of a bit of erotica. My first impression when the sexy got to happening was Amanda was every man’s dream come true. Kiowa pretty much got to do anything to her, and she loved it. Dirty little slut came to mind. I was like, what’s with her? It was like reading a porn movie. Keep in mind, I was looking for erotica, so a little naughty wasn’t a bad thing. Later, I found out why she was behaving the way she was, and it totally reminded me of Shadow Cat with the uninhibited lust due to being in heat. One awesome thing about Soul Deep, the sex scenes were evenly spaced throughout the work rather than clumped together in the center like Shadow Cat. For an up and coming writer like me, Lora Leigh offered an excellent example. So here’s the bottom line. I DEFINITELY look forward to reading more Lora Leigh. Thanks again, Diane!

Soul Deep may not be a general fan favorite in The Breeds series, but it certainly ended up being one of my favorite books so far. In a series that has generally been riddled with plot holes, this character driven story was a welcome change of pace. The editing was also better than in previous books, primarily consisting of just typos with only one continuity error that I found, which made for a much more pleasant reading experience. There may not have been as much action or overall advancement of The Breeds story arc, but I really enjoyed getting to know Kiowa and Amanda. Kiowa was a very tortured and lonely hero, perhaps even more so than any of the other Breed males to date. The felines at least had each other, and Dash, although something of a loner too, had found a place for himself in the military and had some friends. Kiowa is also a Coyote, the most reviled Breed species, because they were bred to be the jailors and tormentors of the other Breeds. He didn't grow up in the labs which in some ways was a blessing, but he was still treated with contempt by a grandfather who hated him and basically left him to fend for himself in an isolated mountain cabin. Kiowa has never known the love of family or any human being for that matter, but he grew up longing to experience those things. Constant disappointment trained him to bury those dreams deep inside, right alongside the pain of rejection, so he can seem a little cold and emotionless at times. However, I always saw through the stoic facade to the hurt little boy inside, and viewed him as more of the quiet, brooding type. Kiowa is definitely an alpha (does Lora Leigh ever write anything else?;-)), but a bit less intense than most of her other heroes I've read so far. Even in his more dominating moments, he seemed to have a tender, gentle side that I loved, and he was even willing to let Amanda go when he thought that was what she wanted. I even liked that Amanda didn't think of Kiowa as particularly handsome, much less gorgeous. Average looking romance heroes are hard to find. While I realize this might be off-putting to some readers, I found it to be a refreshing change. Overall, Kiowa was a surprisingly well-developed character to be found in a Lora Leigh novel, especially one this short.Amanda is the president's daughter and a teacher who of course, loves kids. She is a kind, considerate woman who gets swept up and unexpectedly thrown into a situation that is totally foreign to her. Although she knows about the Breeds, she certainly didn't think she'd ever be mated to one, much less have to suffer through an excruciating mating heat. Even though Amanda is a virgin, she's always known through reading and personal experimentation that she has some ¿kinks,¿ but in spite of Kiowa being the embodiment of all her sexual fantasies, she is understandably upset about having her plans for the future disrupted. Everything happens so quickly that Amanda also has a lot of doubts about whether her feelings for Kiowa are real or just fueled by lust. I liked that she too was not as intense as Lora Leigh's typical heroines, but she did still have her moments. If I had one quibble with Amanda, it would be her lack of intuitiveness about Kiowa's feelings. For someone who was so nurturing toward others, I thought she could have tried a little harder to get Kiowa to open up to her about the past and what was bothering him. Instead she kind of went off half-cocked, first trying to run away from him in what I would call a TSTL moment and then just simply made threats, which I think only served to make him feel more unworthy. In spite of that, she was a pretty good heroine who did eventually come around, and she was brave to go through the terrible pain of the tests for the betterment of all Breeds. I just wish she had been a little more understanding.As a couple, I thought that Kiowa and Amanda worked well together. Usually not being a fan of instant meeting and mating, I w
