I wish I could give this book 6 stars - it is so good! This is another of the Breed's books starring Coyote Alpha Del-Ray Delgado and Anya Kobrin, daughter of one of the hated lab scientists. Anya has been working on the inside for her female Coyote friends since the age of 16 and feels like she is one of them, even though she is fully human. From the moment Del-Ray first saw Anya at 16, he wanted her, protected her and ultimately took her for his own when his men finally raided the compound holding many Coyote breeds against their will.

This story can't be and shouldn't be read in a hurry. There's so much depth to this book, unlike some of the other breed books. Just when you think that the heroine was going into TSTL territory, you find out something that makes everything "click" and then you are on her side 100%. Del-Ray himself...Alpha Delgado...is a man's man but his feelings for Anya overwhelm him and sometimes his way of protecting her only makes things worse. His genuine remorse is not forced or trite and is in every way believable. One particular scene has Anya feeling just about as alone and unloved as anyone could imagine and I found myself wanting to lay my head down and cry with her.

I highly recommend this book to ANY of LL's fans and any new fan looking to get started in the series.

After reading Ginger10's review, I was worried that I would be disappointed in this book, but nothing could be further from the truth. I have read all of the "Breed" books, and think that the series just gets better with every new book that is published.

Yes, there is emotional turmoil, and yes the hero of the book does cause the heroine emotional pain, but in every instance it was done out of love for her. While at first you were like "how could he do that to her?!" once the reasons for his actions were explained to the reader and the heroine you could see that his intentions were good, despite unforseen consequences of his actions.

I love the strong characters that Lora Leigh creates, and with strong characters comes strong emotions, set within a dynamic and dangerous world. Highly recommended and is one of my fav's of the breed series along with Mercury's War. Will be a "keeper" on my bookshelves :)

I really wanted to like this book, but while I think there will be many that truly enjoy it - I didn't. There was just way too much angst and emotional turmoil that went on for far too long for me. The hero hurts the heroine over and over and over again by betraying and treating her badly in the beginning, then through not supporting or trusting her throughout most of the book. It's like the author took every viable opportunity (and ploy possible) to ramp up the tension level and believe me, she succeeded. The thing is, the hero did truly care about the heroine but was TSTL when it came to how he treated her (except in bed, thankfully). He just made one mistake after another - as in give me a break! Yes, it was a typically hot Lora Leigh novel, but I just couldn't enjoy it with all the overlying tension and the heroine's palpable distress! At one point, I wanted - to not even throw, but to heave the darn book against the wall.

To Lora Leigh's credit, this book is a definite success as far as drawing you in and keeping the tension level high, but the degree and type of tension is just not my personal cuppa. With that being said, though, if you're a die hard LL fan, you definitely won't want to miss this one. Read it - who knows, you may love it!

I agree with many of the other reviews. Coyote's Mate is not the best in the breed's series. It is just an emotional whirlwind...the hero indeed causes the heroine such pain continously. The sex scenes are a bit much at times and I found myself skimming over much of those. I really enjoyed the other books that I've read in this series, but found Coyote's Mate to be somewhat of a disappointment. In my option, only the last 25% of the book is excellent. This part is action packed and the hero finally becomes a man worthy of his Coya. Because of this, I will continue reading about these Breeds to see what happens next.

I have read about 3/4's of this series and I am losing interest. This edition didn't do anything to draw me back in. I skimmed parts of the book that didn't hold my interest. The over-used plot device of horrible abuse just doesn't appeal to me. At some point, the alpha males merge into one.
