The latest in Lora Leigh’s popular Breeds series, NAVARRO’S PROMISE, is a story of denial, suppression and the wonderful surprises that can ultimately come with acceptance. Micah is the human friend first introduced in ELIZABETH'S WOLF, when the young wolf/coyote breed, Cassie, was in real need of a friend. Cassie’s best friend from that moment on, Micah has grown up among the Breeds and is among the very few privileged to know their secrets. Micah is all grown up now and still finds sexy breed Navarro Blaine starring in all her hottest fantasies. But Micah has plans for her life and they don’t include mating with a wolf breed.

But when Micah is targeted by those who want to continue the experiments on the breeds, Navarro decides the time for claiming his mate has come and what this wolf wants, he gets.

Let me say right up front that if you haven’t read any of Lora Leigh’s Breed stories, it might be a bit confusing to pick up with the 24th story in the series. Not that reading all the books in order is necessary for understanding, but perhaps picking up one or two of the earlier books would give a stronger background and understanding of what the breeds are and what they have been through.

That said, Leigh’s NAVARRO’S PROMISE is a fast paced and sensual story that fans of the series are sure to enjoy. Like with so many of the other highly popular Breed stories, NAVARRO’S PROMISE delves into the difficulties of a genetically altered group of human/animal hybrids bred in laboratories and treated like the animals they share DNA with, who are now trying to find a way to live their lives alongside a very frightened and suspicious human society while still being hunted by the many factions who still want to control and use them. It is the strong emotion that Ms. Leigh so vividly pulls from not only her characters, but her readers as well, that makes NAVARRO’S PROMISE and all her Breed stories so very successful.

Lora Leigh once again delivers as promised with NAVARRO’S PROMISE; the latest highly anticipated and wonderfully delivered hot and steamy mating from one of paranormal romance’s most successful and prolific authors. This is one series that this reader hopes will continue for a long time to come.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
