Eleven years ago Cassa Hawkins watched in terror and anger as a Bengal breed fought for his very life.  Because of this, Cassa has devoted her life to reporting and paving the way for Breeds in society the best way she knows how.  Given access to Sanctuary and Haven, Cassa does her best to release information and stories that will show the world that the Breeds are human beings with thoughts and feelings.  She is trusted, sort of, and that is all she can ask for – until the night she is emailed pictures of a horrific murder with the promise of more deaths.  With her reporter’s eye for facts and her heart in her throat, Cassa begins her investigation knowing that the one man she can never have will do his best to keep her from this assignment – Cabal St. Laurents, a breed unlike any she has ever met but can’t help but desire with every ounce of her being. The man she has eluded and avoided for years because of what she is to him – she is his mate and he has yet to claim her.

Cabal St. Laurents is one of the most dangerous breeds ever born. He hides his true persona under a guise of playfulness and playboy antics, some of which are legendary.  With his brother mated, Cabal has been at a sort of loose ends with his life. But his life changes in an instant when the director of the Bureau of Breed Affairs gives him a new assignment – that of following a certain inquisitive reporter and making sure she stays out of the investigation being conducted to find a killer.  With just one kiss, Cabal sets his plan in motion, that of tying Cassa to him for eternity.  Now all he has to do is convince her to stay out of his investigation – which proves harder than he thought.  Suddenly when information comes pouring in about the murderer they are trying to find, his mate is caught in the middle.  Cabal knows the animal that is inside of him, and where his mate is concerned, all bets are off.  Cassa is his heart, and it is time she accepts the love he feels for her before it is too late. 


Finding the words to describe such an extraordinary novel is difficult at best. Anything that I could say to express how different, creative, and scorching hot BENGAL’S HEART is just seems boring.  Cabal St. Laurents is alpha to the bone but tender and compassionate.  He loves with his whole heart, and Cassa is the reason his heart still beats within his chest.  He fights their mating, not because he doesn't want her, but because he knows it will possibly place her in danger.  His stubbornness to share his ideas and facts about the investigation creates an almost chasm between these explosive lovers.  It isn’t until Cassa’s life is threatened that Cabal’s true nature rears its head – and let me be honest, it is something that I would have never imagined in a million years. Blasé as it sounds, the words, “shock” and “awe” come to mind.  In BENGAL’S HEART, possible new plots are explored and questions are answered. Readers will meet new breeds and revisit old ones.  I was simply astounded and intrigued at the possible story lines that could be written for this amazing series. 


Hook, line and sinker – Lora Leigh reeled me in, and I was a goner.  BENGAL’S HEART will make you laugh, possibly cry.  It will keep you on the edge of your seat with the twists and turns of an innovative plotline.  The love scenes are raw and earthy and simply filled with passion.  I couldn’t have asked for a better love story for Cabal than BENGAL’S HEART.  It is truly one of the best Ms. Leigh has ever written.   Grab a copy today and be ready to be beguiled and captivated – you won’t be sorry.
