This book is an excellent addition to the Breeds series. Admittedly, some books are better than others in this series, but overall, it's a fantastic series and this book stood out for me as one of the best. Having read this series from the beginning, I'm not sure how this book would stand alone, but I would highly recommend this series to those who love romance, scifi/paranormal with a big dose of erotica thrown into the mix.
The Breeds were created in labs by an evil entity known as "The Genetics Council". They combined human and animal DNA in an attempt to create super soldiers. Their treatment in the labs was horrendous. Once their existence is revealed to the world, their introduction into society and their assimilation is a rocky one, to say the least. A phenomenon called "Mating Heat" effects the breeds, causing them to be irresistibly drawn to their perfect mate.
Coming out of the labs, the Breeds chose names for themselves, and our hero in this book chose (one can only imagine with his tongue in his cheek) the name Rule Breaker. He and his twin, both Lion breeds, were forced to watch their mother dissected by evil scientist in the labs in an attempt to understand mating heat, so Rule has vowed to never subject a woman to that risk. He intends to run fast and hard at the first "whiff" of his mate. When he meets Gypsy, he feels a compulsion to keep an eye on her and ensure her safety, but she's only 15, has just lost her brother to Council soldiers, and he suffers from no signs of the mating heat when he's near her. He protects her from afar for 9 years until his duties bring him back to the Navajo nation area where Gypsy lives. Gypsy, now 24, is up to her neck in intrigue. When he sees her again, Rule feels intense attraction, but thankfully, still no signs of the mating heat. Feeling safe, he proceeds to attempt a seduction.
Gypsy feels responsible for the death of her brother, who was a human computer whiz and spy for the Breeds, when she was only 15. Her parents distanced themselves from her after her brothers murder and her near rape by Council soldiers. Feeling the need to redeem herself and somehow atone, Gypsy joins a covert group and becomes an operative that is only known as "Whisper". She's a friend to all, but a lover to none. When the Breed Rule Breaker decides to pursue her for more than friendship, she feels the attraction, but fights it. Her handlers forbid her from forming intimate attachments. Her work and her redemption is all her life has been about since her brothers death, and she doesn't want to give that up.
In typical Lora Leigh style, the hero is hot, the sex is hotter, and the machinations of all the players can make you rewind more than a few times. Unlike many erotic novels, there's an excellent story with plenty of action going on outside of the bedroom.
Brianna Bronte delivers this story with consummate professionalism. Her pleasant voice, great timing and awesome delivery is just spectacular. Well worth my credit!

Not sure what the author is doing but the scenes repeat time and again between books with a bit of story change in between. When I first started reading/listening to these books I enjoyed them now I find them tedious. So sadly no more......
