Image of Mercury's War

As the newest chapter in Leigh's scintillating Breed series demonstrates, trouble is brewing. Adding political and social layers to these supremely sexy action-adventure tales gives them depth and continuity. For those who like their paranormal scorching, look no further!

Lion Breed enforcer Mercury Warrant believes he lost his destined mate years ago. Due to his unique makeup -- and the violence he demonstrated upon her death -- Mercury was given drugs to suppress his animal side. That he hasn't been taking the drugs for years hasn't been a problem -- until feisty Ria Rodriquez shows up.

On the surface, Ria's mission is to examine the sanctuary books for the Vanderale family, but her true mission is more serious.

Someone is smuggling out dangerous information to a pharmaceutical company, and that leak must be plugged at once. Ria knows all about Mercury and his mate, so despite the intense attraction between them, she doesn't want to get involved. But Mercury's long-suppressed beast has other ideas!
