WHEN DESIRE CANNOT BE CONTROLLED . . . WHEN PERSONAL WILL IS OVERPOWERED BY CARNAL CRAVINGS . . . WHEN ONLY ONE FEARLESS IMPULSE FEEDS YOU, BODY AND SOUL . . . You can't deny it. It's something primal. #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh returns to her sensual world of the Breeds . . . in an all-new Breed novella that explores just how savage, how far, and how deep a man is willing to go in the name of desire. Set in the same dark, seductive corners as Michelle Rowen's Nightshade universe . . . an innocent young woman is drawn into the dangerous world of dhampyr whose love could be the death of her. Jory Strong's 'worldbuilding is nothing short of stunning' ( Genre Reviews ) . . . and now, in a novella of the Djinn, comes the story of an angel who crosses the boundaries of desire after committing the ultimate sin-falling in love with a mortal female Ava Gray, known for her 'riveting romantic suspense' ( Publishers Weekly ) . . . now tells a tantalizing tale of an ordinary man-blessed and cursed with extraordinary powers-who gets a second chance at life and love.

Here are my ratings for each novella on a 1(low) to 5 (high)scale in violence (V), sensuality (S), and humor (H). Following the ratings are very brief creature/plot summaries:
Michelle Rowen's "Bleeding Heart": Ratings: V5; S2; H1 (mad scientists experimenting on dhampyrs—half vampire/half human)
Ava Gray's "Skin and Bones": Ratings: V5; S2; H1 (mad scientists experimenting on various people with psychic talents)
Jory Strong's "Angel Claimed": Ratings: V3; S5; H2 (erotic romance with a mishmash of supernatural beings, from fallen angels to vampires to djinn)
Lora Leigh's "Primal Kiss": Ratings: V3; S4; H-2 (sexy feline Breed meets his soulmate)

"Primal" includes four novellas, each part of a paranormal series:
Michelle Rowen—NIGHTSHADE series
Ava Gray—SKIN series
Jory Strong—GHOSTLAND series
Lora Leigh—BREEDS series
Readers will understand the stories better if they read the previous books in each series first, particulary Jory Strong’s "Skin & Bone." If you are at all familiar with the BREEDS series, you can easily read Leigh’s “Primal Kiss” as a stand-alone. Check out my review of "Primal" at
