Publisher's Summary

The mating urge cannot be ignored....

Bad boy Jonas Wyatt knows it is fate that Rachel becomes his mate. He can sense it. He can also sense her reluctance. But she has little power over the mating heat of the Breeds. It is Jonas's destiny to claim her. And nothing will stop him from having his way.

Great Audio

Have been waiting for the series to be added to Audible since listening to Harmony's Way and Megan's Mark. Lion's Heat was worth the wait. Thanks Audible

Hate the heroine!

I wish I could say this book was as great as I was hoping it would be as I've looked forward to Jonas's book. But his mate, Rachel, was just a tease (guess which kind) and a witch, but with a "b". The book kept saying she was his perfect mate, but I could not stand her. The basic story was pretty much "breed standard", and I like them usually. But sometimes the resistance to the "mating" goes too far, like in this one. And there were inconsistencies like when she tells herself he hasn't said he loves her, but he already had said it to her earlier in the book. She just can't make up her mind even though she lets him do all kinds of stuff to her and loves it, admits to herself that she loves him, that she's been fascinated by him for years, but hey, let's torture him some more since he hasn't already been tortured enough in his life. I think the narrator did a pretty good job, but I didn't like the way she did Rachel's voice. She was just strident or whiny most of the time. I really think most of these books should be read by men.

Absolutely the best adult book!

Lora Leigh is not for everyone. The love scenes are graphic and intense, but make no mistake....the scenes are about love. The characters are so into each other....they can not help it. This story is one of my favorites. Jonas and his mate are perfectly suited for each other. I have read all of Lora Leigh's books....even the earlier ones....and I would love to listen to all of them again on audible. Keep them coming audible. Every last one of them are excellent adult erotic romances. I can't wait until you do the navy seal stories.....especially the WILD CARD.

Love the Hero, Hate the Heroine

What did you like best about Lion's Heat? What did you like least?

I hate, hate, hate Rachael. She is the most selfish woman I have ever had the inopportunity to read about. She uses her toys to achieve her own release. Then Jonas brings her to climax on two separate occasions, once when she is CLEARLY aware of the pain he is in. And in all this time, he is not allowed to even kiss her or else she would be subjected to the mating heat. Heaven forbid that Jonas is not the only one to suffer. And then, in chapter 14, when she if finally leaning toward “giving in” (I mean he has only risked his life, saved her daughter several times, proclaimed his love for her, all with getting nothing in return), does she kiss him? No. She starts to seduce him and wants to play a game to see how far she can push him before he finally loses his vaunted control. All while he is under the pressure of months of the mating heat, and she is debating, should I? Shouldn’t I? Am I ready? Blah, blah, blah. It is hard to love a book when you hate the heroine. I love Jonas enough to recommend the book, but honestly, this won’t be one I read over and over. She is just toooooo annoying.
At one point, he tells her he loves her. Then later she says he calls it a mating and can’t admit it is love. She says several times that Marines has told her everything about the mating heat, and yet she seems completely unaware that he cannot find his release without his mate. Jonas tells her this. She doesn’t believe him. Later Elly tells her this. She pretends to be completely unaware of this and later wonders if this can really be true. It makes me wonder since she doesn’t think that this can be true and obviously doesn’t think Jonas is having a difficult time, then why oh why was it so important to her not to give in? Completely illogical and chronically annoying.
Then they finally have sex. She nearly loses her mind the sex is so good and then she cuddles up and goes to sleep completely sated, but never notices that he wears a condom, doesn’t climax, and doesn’t even kiss her. Chapter 15 (out of 25)and I am so aggravated and annoyed that I am writing this review while listening to the book so that I can vent my frustration.
It is the end of chapter 16 before she FINALLY decides he is good enough for her to kiss. I have finished the book and Rachael, of course, becomes a strong woman and a good mate, but it is too little too late as far as I am concerned.

Liked Other Books Better

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

A little unbelievable

Would you be willing to try another book from Lora Leigh? Why or why not?

Perhaps -- Mating Heat?

What three words best describe Brianna Bronte’s voice?

Other books were better

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

This book was not as good as the others. Brianna Bronte tends to whine a bit with this narration (Rachel). Jonas did not appear the same in this book as he was in the other books.

Jonas and Rachel

while Jonas and Amber were my favorite characters in this story Rachel got on my nerves . Jonas is my favorite character in the whole series and I was glad to read his story. Rachel being willing to believe the worse about him got old fast. I liked Jonas and the Leo duking it out. I hope Dane gets a mate.

love Jonas Wyatt

loved it need more. Didn't want it to end. my most memorable part was when Jonas first confronts Rachel about being his mate and she halls off and smacks him across the face. Lol.. I listen with anticipation for what's coming next after every chapter.

Soft Kitty

I have suspected it for a while, but it is nice to see that Jonas actually has a soft side .
