Bengal's Quest by Lora Leigh. This is the 30th book in her Breeds series. I have been following along for quite a while. Here is the description from Amazon:
He was a shadow, ever shifting and insinuating, able to blend in everywhere and anywhere. The elusive ideal conceived and created by the Genetics Council, he went by just as many names as he had identities—the last one being Gideon.Beginning:
Now calling himself Graeme, he hides in plain sight, terrifyingly close to his goal. A rogue Bengal Breed, he has loyalties to no one but himself. And he has a need for vengeance that surges hot and swift through his veins.
Graeme plans to exact an extreme and ruthless vendetta against those who wronged him—Breed and human alike. All will suffer his wrath: those who created him, those who pretended to love him, and those who betrayed him.
That includes the one at the center of it all: a seductive, enigmatic woman helpless against the man whose desire is just as desperate as his need to destroy.
And he’s on her scent…
Cat stared at the white walls of the cell she'd grown up in and she cried. She hadn't cried in a long time.Friday 56:
It hurt G when she cried, so she'd stopped crying when she was scared, when she was five. She was twelve now, and unless the therapies just hurt so bad she couldn't stand it anymore, she didn't cry.
He could see her face, so stark and pale, her eyes filled with bitterness, and felt his chest clench at the knowledge of the pain he'd caused her.
