"terrific heated romantic science fiction"

In the near future, Harmony Lancaster was born in a genetics lab as a lion breed (mix of lion DNA into human DNA). She was bred and trained to kill. However, her pride in herself leads to her escaping from the breeder "prison"; she also took valuable information as a bargaining chip and to learn more about the experiments. This trained killer plans to kill members of the Genetics Council and the scientists who abet their efforts to use and abuse breeds of all ages.

Head of the Breed Council, her breed sibling Jonas worries about Harmony as many of their supporters want her vigilante justice stopped even if it means killing her to do so. He catches her, but she refuses to hand over the information she has on the First Leo. Jonas takes her to Broken Butte, New Mexico where he has friends he can trust especially her biological mate Sheriff Lance Jacobs. Though irate and roaring like a lioness, Harmony is also attracted to the lawman who has vowed to keep his beloved safe as several groups including a fire and brimstone anti breed preacher converge on the small town to take away the information on the First Lion information dead or alive preferably the former.

HARMONY'S WAY is a terrific heated romantic science fiction novel that makes readers believe in the genetic engineering as described by Lora Leigh in this tale and in MEGAN'S MARK. Harmony is a fabulous unique lead character as she believes justice can only be served for her breed and the other breeds by first strike killing of those who treat them as abused animals or abominations. Fans will empathize with her, but question her vigilante tactics as does the love of her life Lance. Readers will appreciate the diversity and fighting factions that make up the Leigh universe as danger from multiple sides converge on this small New Mexico town.

A Novel the Feline Breeds

The author of Megan's Mark continues her PURRfectly paranormal series.

Lora Leigh's series about genetically-altered humans with feline DNA is turning into a roaring success. When the Breeds desire the passions of the flesh, they can't help but get frisky.

You met our hero, Lance, in Megan's Mark. The sheriff of Broken Butte New Mexico and a man who doesn't like to have his carefully constructed life becoming messy.

Enter one fully grown, fiery female lion breed assassin.

Harmony's life is on the line and saving her won't be easy. Breed Law gives her only one chance to turn her Breed talents to serve the law, rather than to mete out justice. Has she confined the killing to Coyotes or Council members, she could have slid by, but Harmony's weakness is the predators who attack children and destroy young lives forever. That weakness finds her paired with Lance Jacob's, whose job it is to teach the lioness the difference between law and justice.

Mating her wasn't in the job description that the Director of the Bureau of Breed Affairs, Jonas Wyatt, outlined. But nature, lust, and love will eventually have its way. As will death if Lance doesn't find a way to solve the mystery of several deaths in his town. Murders obviously committed by a Breed. And highest on the list of suspects, is Lance's mate.
