Rule Breaker

Lora Leigh. Berkley, $25.95 (448p) ISBN 978-0-425-26545-1
Leigh’s long-running, once innovative Breeds paranormal romance series (Stygian’s Honor) is showing its age. While she still manages to create erotic romances for her long-suffering characters, she employs increasingly convoluted subplots to hide her reuse of elements from earlier works. Breeds leader Jonas Wyatt tasks Cmdr. Rule Breaker with discovering whether Gypsy McQuade is a mole for the Unknown, a shadowy Navajo organization whose members might have the cure for the illness afflicting Jonas’s adopted daughter’s. As the Mate Matcher, Jonas has ulterior motives, but Rule’s refusal to find his mate, along with some anomalies, blinds him to his compatibility with Gypsy. For her part, Gypsy believes she’s unworthy of love, and in their first intimate moment, Rule’s behavior only convinces her that she is damaged goods. The characters’ romance is as improbable as their names. Readers will be glad that Leigh concludes a riveting subplot begun in earlier books, but the primary feeling that arises while reading this one is déjà vu. (Feb.)
