She calms him, she excites him … she is his.
Evangeline Tregre has run from the bayou shifters lair and made a good life for herself. She has leopard shifter blood but has never shifted. She has decided to stay away from that world … until Alonzo Massi walks into her bakery.
Alonzo knows that he can’t get involved with the sweet bakery owner, but he has been compelled to visit her shop. She brings peace to his Amur leopard as no one had ever been able to do. When danger comes her way he has no choice but to step in. He has no choice because no one will endanger what is his. But can Evangeline possibly tame the viscous beast that is very much a part of Alonzo?
LEOPARD’S FURY is another fascinating winner from author Christine Feehan. I did have to go back to the previous “Leopard Novel” books to find out exactly who Evangeline was but once I had, I applauded her escape from the world she was raised in. Both she and Alonzo carry a lot of baggage that had to be worked through and I believe that was done well. There is still a bit of bossiness that is sometimes a little irritating to me, but I guess that is the nature of the men involved as shifters with a cold nature and killer instincts. On the most part the women, Evangeline especially, knows what to say and do to sooth the beast within.
I enjoy renewing acquaintances with past characters of any series and loved watching these “bad guys” as they try to clean up their part of the world as best they can. The outsiders might believe they are part of the mafia or gangster world but they and those that love them know the truth. If you are a fan of these novels you know what I mean and if not … you have got to read all of Ms. Feehan’s leopard books to understand.
If you want action, sometimes violent and dangerous; strong alpha heroes; sweet but with strength of steel heroines; and love that will last through any storm then LEOPARD’S FURY is exactly the book for you.
