He always knew he would betray her...

Anya Korbin was only sixteen when she first came to Del-Rey Delgado—the genetically altered rebel known as the Coyote Ghost. For six years they plotted to free a group of Coyote women kept in Anya's father's lab. As Anya matured into a woman, she and Del-Rey grew close...but on the day of the ambush, he broke his promise and shot her father.

Filled with rage over the betrayal, Anya discovers an even stronger emotion is consuming her mind and body—the animalistic desire known as mating heat. Though Del-Rey feels it with the same intensity, Anya questions whether she can forgive him or trust him again. As they stealthily maneuver to bring the freed Breeds to safety, one question reigns supreme: Can Anya and Del-Rey survive their own heat?

My View:
The minute the new edition to Lora Leigh's series was on the shelves I made my way to grab a copy and I wasn't disappointed. This addition to the Coyote series will keep readers entertained and filled with emotion. Reading Anya plight will bring tears to the eyes of even the hardest romance reader.

I love the way Lora connects her series. In Mercury's War and Christmas Heat, Lora started a new story line featuring American based companies trying to create drugs to use against the Breeds. In Coyote's Mate she continues offering more pieces to the puzzle, but not completing the story. I'm glad that Lora finally got around to telling Del Rey and Anya's story. In Aiden's Charity the author kept us waiting with more information about the couple that we only meet briefly after finding out that Anya is going through the same mating heat that all the other women in the Breed series. The couple works well together and I liked getting to revisit the wolf compound and catching up Wolfe and Hope again.

On the other hand, while I understand the need to finally find a woman who stands against all the mating heat and stuff, I was a little disappointed the author tried it with this couple. I would love to see a story where Lora portrays a woman who just meets her mate for the first time and bam she's in mating heat and then wants nothing to do with him or the mating heat because she doesn't know him and is scared to death of what's happening to her. Let that character petition to be separated from her mate. While I understood why Anya was angry and mistrusting I also saw the couple's growing love even before the mating. That alone should have seen them back together after a few days not months later. Maybe a good person to have mating troubles like this would be Jonas' character. That could be really entertaining.

While a little disappointing, that didn't detract me from giving this book five stars though. I found the book was well written, the story line appealing and readers of the series will enjoy keeping up with characters and the story. For those who haven't read the series, this is a good one to start on. Lora Leigh takes on a whole new meaning to the weres and mating.
