Dawn Daniels endured years of psychological, physical and sexual abuse at the hands of the Council’s lackeys who control the lab she was raised in. Once she and her Pride brothers and sister escaped the abuse should have ended. But it didn’t. Betrayed by her Pride brother, Dawn becomes a Breed Enforcer in control of her life and her choices. And she, or Mother Nature, has chosen Seth Lawrence, one of the Breeds biggest supporters, for her mate. Control is a hard thing to have around a man like Seth when every look, every touch, every scent of him makes her long for his touch.
Seth Lawrence has loved and admired Dawn for a long time but after years of waiting he is ready to move on. When Dawn is assigned to his protection detail following an attempt on his life, Seth’s will to resist his overwhelming desire for Dawn disintegrates. In a blaze of passion the mating heat takes over forcing both Dawn and Seth to come to terms with the past. The appearances of one of Dawn’s former tormentors sparks a violent, near fatal confrontation that just may end all hope for a secure future for the Breeds.
Lora Leigh continues her bestselling series about the Breeds with the long awaited Dawn’s Awakening. Of the Breeds we have met so far Dawn is my favorite. She has vast depths of strength that Lora does a stupendous job showing us. The scenes are so tense you can feel Dawn’s pain and Seth’s frustration. The hard won happy ending as well as the unexpected appearance of mysterious figures will leave you gasping for a quick release date for the next Breed story.
