Danger and desire becomes one in a sensual novella of the Breeds, the “highly erotic saga” (Fresh Fiction) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rule Breaker, Lawe’s Justice and Stygian’s Honor.

Lyra’s neighbor can’t be for real. A man who makes her hormones stand up and scream every time she sees him. And he’s breaking through her reserve to invade her dreams at night.

But Tarek Jordan is even more than he seems. A Breed Enforcer with a plan. First, find the Council Trainer he’s tracked to Fayetteville, Arkansas, and second, claim the woman next door as his own. She's fated to be his and his alone. He can feel it in his blood. Until the danger that has shadowed his life suddenly casts a darkness over Lyra's as well. Now Tarek knows that he can’t wait any longer to claim the woman his heart and soul burns for. He has to tell her who he is, what he is, and what he wants. And Lyra will have to accept him as he is, on his terms, and now. Her life depends on it.

The Breed Next Door originally appeared in Hot Spell.

It's one of the best short books that I've read. I must say its good and well done! When they are short they usually lack the flow of a story and jump into situations leaving you with the feeling that something is missing. This is not the case with this story.

This was a sweet story. Tarek is a Breed who lives in a human suburb (this is part of a larger plot). He's fascinated by his next door neighbor, Lyra. I really liked his reactions to regular things. He goes a little crazy over fresh baked bread. I think he ate an entire loaf in one sitting. :D Tarek is endearing in his attempts to be 'normal' and do all the things humans do, which bring him into contact with Lyra. Speaking of Lyra, she was a fun character. She had a depth of character that made her real, especially with her outbursts and frustrations. All in all, this novella was one of my favorites of the breeds series. I do recommend reading a couple of the main series first, just to help put the world in context.
