Bengal’s Quest is book thirty in the Breeds series by Lora Leigh.

I will point out that this is not a standalone nor a good place to start. Their are key elements, storylines, and continuing things in play in a Bengal's Quest. You might be able to get away with starting at [b:Stygian's Honor|11540546|Stygian's Honor (Breeds, #27; Wolf Breeds, #9)|Lora Leigh|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1329932871s/11540546.jpg|16479855] for this storyline. The opening prologue helped me recall some events, but it’s not enough for a newcomer to the series.

Cat has been in hiding and now that she is exposed, she is finally living her life. She was born human, but due to an illness she was genetically altered into a Breed to save her life. She suffered just like other Breeds and once she escaped she found herself in a position where she had to pose as Claire Martinez to hid from the Genetic Council and the Breed who swore to kill her.

Years ago, Gideon saved a little girl more then once that he called his own. During his last heroic rescue of her, he found himself hurt and she saved him with a blood transfusion, due to that he he swore to kill her. He hurt her emotionally to protect her from the Mating Heat that was starting to consuming him. Now that Cat is a women, he knows it’s time to claim her as his mate.

Confusing? Bengal’s Quest was a bit confusing and well this storyline has been a bit confusing from the start. The storyline spans at least three books maybe more. We get a vague description of transferring spirits and souls into other bodies. Which this concept has been odd and unusual from the moment it was introduced. I never fully understood what was going on with this spirit/soul storyline, until the end of Bengal’s Quest. Even at the end I was still feeling a little like I was missing something in this area. It’s not complete and I don’t know what’s going to happen or if we will get answers. This isn't the first time the author has gone down one path and then changed her mind and never finished.

The romance between Cat and Gideon was mediocre. I never really connected to either, though I did like that Cat was strong-willed and that she put effort into reaching both Gideon the “monster” and Graeme the alpha. It just felt like the same romance was happening again.

Bengal’s Quest also offered too much and didn’t focus enough on long-standing characters. Ms. Leigh continues to expand her world, rather than focus on the characters she has. We are introduced to several potential future storylines that just got in the way and mad things more confusing. For example we have Cat’s friend, Khi (what is up their?), adding more new Breeds, and what possibly happened or will happen to Claire’s spirit. Finally, the story was riddled with repetitive dialogue and inner-monologue.

I will say it was nice to return to the Breed series after stepping away from it for a time, but I felt like it was the same, rinse wash repeat, and doesn’t have that spark that attracted me to the series to begin with. I’m sure I’ll continue on, but it’s not at the top of my list.

Rated: 3 Stars

Great Breed story. It references a lot to past events and fills in some of the blanks left previously. Looking forward to the next Breed story.

Summary

Graeme is one of the most elusive and secretive breeds to exist. He can blend in anywhere and find anyone he desires. He has many identities and now he goes by Gideon. There is a woman that he has known since her birth, she came to him as a babe sick with disease and he cured her using breed genetics, and her name is Cat. Cat can only remember intense pain as a child. Unlike other breeds, she started out as a human and then was turned into an animal. But there are two men she has only ever trusted, twin brothers Graeme and Judd. Graeme she knew would always be there for her, but then he abandoned her and Judd, and at thirteen years old she and Judd managed to escape with Graeme’s help, but it almost cost him his life, and when she healed him with her blood Graeme went insane with primal instincts and vowed to exact revenge. He is on the hunt for Cat, the only woman he has ever loved, his true mate, and he will find her and possess her. But Cat knows what is coming for her, she is resigned to it, she knows there is no escape from his wrath, but she would do anything to protect him and keep him alive, despite the cost to herself. What Cat isn’t ready for is his claiming of her as his mate and she is walking into an unknown territory that she didn’t expect…
The Hero

Gideon (aka Graeme and many other alias) was forced to work with the Genetic’s council. He slowly gathered information, and left the only two people he ever cared about, so that he could escape and get all breeds freed. Gideon is unchallenged, cunning, and has certain abilities no other breed has. He has taken certain actions to survive, and won’t apologize for it. But there is one person in his life he would do anything for, Cat his mate and the one he claimed since she came to him as a sick child. No more than a baby. But he knew even then as a child, that she was his, to keep, protect and to love. Gideon is a character that has been around the series for quite some time, and there isn’t much we know about him until this book. But ever since we first see him, I was curious if Lora Leigh would do his story, and she did and boy was I excited to read more about his past and who he is now. Many of the breeds haven’t had it easy, but Gideon has definitely had a difficult time of it, Not only do we see his intellect, and brawn (scary having those two things together), but he is a survivor, where most others would have died. He is driven and determined and stubborn. But what a sexy male he is. He has everything you look for in a alpha male, and he is quite the possessive sort, but you see how well he knows Cat too, and how complex his character is at times.
The Heroine

Ever since she can remember, Cat has only one man that she is fiercely loyal to and that is Gideon. She understands more than anyone what he has had to deal with, even if he hurt her more than anyone else ever has. Cat feels betrayed by Gideon, because she has always loved him but now as a grown woman she refuses to give into his demands, after all he has done to her. She is a fighter and a protector, and despite what the other breeds think she is a bengal tigress, a alpha female, that she has kept away under lock and key. She is determined to find her own place away from Jonas and his “boys” but Jonas is seeking Gideon and knows that Cat is the key to finding him. But Cat is just as cunning and sees right through Jonas and his ‘ploys’. What I adored most about Cat is her strength and courage. She is pretty resilient and strong, but she struggles with her emotions, and keeping them under control, I liked that about her character. That she stands on her own, admits her mistakes and isn’t naive about her situation. The one downside to her character is how she hides from the truth at times, but when you learn of her past and what she has had to do to survive, you understand why. She is a heroine that I admired from the very beginning, and I loved her spirited nature.
Plot And Story Line

Bengal’s Quest is a story I wasn’t sure I would like or not. To be honest the reviews and ratings have been split, you either like it or hate it. I liked it, quite a bit , way more than I was expecting. But it had quite a bit of emotional complexities that drew me instantly to the story. I love emotion especially in romances, and when an author can portray them realistically, you have me hooked, and Lora Leigh did that for me with Bengal’s Quest. I wouldn’t recommend this story as a stand alone to be honest, I mean you can, if you have read some of the other books, but it will make more sense if you have read the series in order. I know…if you have yet to read this series (SHAME ON ALL OF YOU *grins* ) then 30 books may seem a bit daunting, but remember one book at a time. The one difference I found in this story from the other books, was the mating heat. It was a bit different, not as “heated” as far as the amount of sex scenes as the other books. It was a bit lighter on that side, there was more focus on that actual emotional intimacy of their relationship. They both have some issues to work out before they can get to the fun sex part of the bond. Even though Gideon and Cat have gone through various struggles, they both have always loved each other since they were kids. That connection is still there, and what we have in this story is the rediscovery of each other, and more importantly learning to trust again. We see some old favorite characters from past books, which is fun (especially Jonas…boy was it fun to see him in action once again, makes me want to re read his book). There is also a certain native american spiritual element that added some a bit deeper to the story line than I was expecting. Not my favorite of the series, but quite fun and packed with plenty of breed action to keep you amused.
The Cover

Now who wouldn’t adore this cover…I mean abs are great, but a nice muscled and toned back…even better!! And I love the Bengal Tiger too…adds some intensity to the cover.
Overall View

Bengal’s Quest is a thrilling story that is full of sexual tension, a reunion romance, more exciting world of the Breeds that this author has created for us, and delivers a sexy romp!! ( )

I liked but I think these last few books are dragging the story too much until the point that matters. Things that need explaining don't get explained or are done so in a unsatisfying way.

One of the biggest reasons that I keep coming back to these books are the incredibly pairings and chemistry created by the author. The sex scenes are hot, spicy and they have incredible emotion wrapped up in them. Here, that aspect showed through perfectly. ( )

Blind obedience was never what I wanted. Yet, you seem determined to keep us in the past, where every act, every response, is either black or white, when you know damned good and well our lives never existed on such a plane
