Review: Bengal’s Quest by Lora Leigh

Bengal's QuestTitle: Bengal’s Quest

Author: Lora Leigh

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Series: Breeds (Book #30)

Publication Date: June 23, 2015

Format: Hardcover, 352 Pages

ISBN-10: 0425265463 (Berkley/Penguin)

ISBN-13: 978-0425265468 (Berkley/Penguin)

Reviewed by: Roxanne


He was a shadow, ever shifting and insinuating, able to blend in everywhere and anywhere. The elusive ideal conceived and created by the Genetics Council, he went by just as many names as he had identities—the last one being Gideon.

Now calling himself Graeme, he hides in plain sight, terrifyingly close to his goal. A rogue Bengal Breed, he has loyalties to no one but himself. And he has a need for vengeance that surges hot and swift through his veins.

Graeme plans to exact an extreme and ruthless vendetta against those who wronged him—Breed and human alike. All will suffer his wrath: those who created him, those who pretended to love him, and those who betrayed him.

That includes the one at the center of it all: a seductive, enigmatic woman helpless against the man whose desire is just as desperate as his need to destroy.

And he’s on her scent…

Quick & Dirty: Genetic experiments and one wild romance!

Opening Sentence: “Cat stared at the white wall of the cell she’d grown up in and she cried.”

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Cat is an experiment and G is the one who helped create her and help her survive until he abandoned her one day. Now Cat is all grown up and living another life and determined to forget G. Cat is a bengal tiger masquerading as Clarie. Hoping one day she will remember or know who her parents are and cursing the doctors who made her the way she is.

Gideon, also known as Graeme, is trying to exact his revenge and claim his mate. Will Cat fight him every step of the way or will she finally give in?

Okay, first let me say I have read some of the books in this series, but I think it has been quite a while because I didn’t know they were up to 30! Now, the thing I didn’t like was the two different names for Cat and the fact that other name she was living under was a real person. So that made it quite confusing to know who was actually talking or whom they were talking about. G was a tad easier, but again, the three different names and changing them throughout the book was super confusing.

So now that is out of the way, I have always enjoyed the Breeds series when I have read the books, honestly the only reason I don’t is I just don’t read much paranormal romance anymore. I will say that it has always been a series you can jump in and out of and enjoy without feeling horribly lost the whole time. I don’t necessarily recommend it, because I did find myself not understanding some of the background things going on, especially things that have been introduced since I first read the books. For instance, the Navajo introduction of spirit binding and I knowing that would have made the whole Cat/Clarie thing not so confusing to me.

From a romance aspect the books rock as always and I did enjoy reading this one, and I am intrigued enough to seriously consider going back and reading the series from the beginning. Lora Leigh has built a really complex world, with a lot going on and it is just so great. This is definitely a must read paranormal romance if that is your genre.

Notable Scenes:

“But it was too late, the words were already said, the damage was already done.”

“The mark of that acceptance, not just by her but by the animal inside her couldn’t be wiped away, no matter how she’d already attempted to erase it.”

“She was pure and certain destruction if he wasn’t extremely careful.”

“With everything between them, though, she hadn’t expected him to claim to be her mate either.”

“This merciless determination to do what must be done at all costs.”

“He had known since Clarie’s birth that her destiny was to be one of heartbreak and fear in her youth, but one of freedom and greatness once payment was made.”
