Berkley / March 21, 2017 / $26.00 print, $12.99 digital
Lora Leigh is back with her latest book in her sensational The Breeds series, Wake A Sleeping Tiger, which tells the story of Cullen Maverick, twin to Graeme from her previous book, Bengal’s Quest.
Cullen is a recessed Bengal. Despite his animal being in hiding, he continues to have the additional strength and coordination known to the Breeds. He can sense other Breeds even though they can’t sense him as well as latent instincts that have been coming to the surface since his brother returned to be near him. Cullen spent over 20 years with his inner Bengal mostly locked away until the moment his colleague, Chelsea Martinez, decides to leave her job, which means leaving him.
Chelsea is tired of being kept in a box. She has strong feelings for Cullen but she wants more from life than doing his filing and other lower level assignments. She’s too talented to be boxed away as if fragile. After a recent tragic incident, she makes a move to give herself a chance to move forward with her life and maybe get over Cullen. He, on the other hand, is having none of that. It sets off a chain reaction in which his true inner self is no longer content to hide from the world or from his mate.
