Wild Cat (Leopard People #8) by Christine Feehan
Synopsis: In the new Leopard novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Cat’s Lair and Leopard’s Prey, passions explode like wildfire when a young woman’s feral instincts are ignited by a man who’s too dangerous not to desire…
A simple request for Siena Arnotto: deliver a gift to her grandfather’s friend. One look at Elijah Lospostos, hard-bodied and stripped to the waist, and Siena succumbs to a feline stirring she never felt before, and to Elijah’s reckless and pleasurable demands. But when that pulse-throbbing moment ends in the murder of an unexpected intruder, Elijah accuses the shaken and confused Siena of setting him up.
Then Siena discovers the truth of her Leopard heritage, of the secrets in her grandfather’s inner circle, and the sinister plot of revenge that has put her in jeopardy. When Siena’s grandfather is assassinated, she realizes the only man she can trust is Elijah. Now as her Leopard rises from within, Siena and Elijah share not only an animal instinct for survival—but a desire so raw and wild it may be the only thing that can save them.
Review: With any Leopard book you know you are going to get a lot of passion, intense males, and strong women. Ever since I met Elijah in Rachel and Rio’s book, I knew his book would be intense and passionate. In the beginning, he really messed up with Siena, but he worked so hard to prove to her that the harsh things he did and said was not true and he didn’t believe any of the cruel things he said. She was so fragile and she went through a lot in a 24-36 hour period and Elijah spends the rest of the book winning her over, protecting her, and frustrating her to no end. Their arguments were cute, I liked that she wouldn’t curse and the way she sometimes spoke was formal. Every time she spoke that way Elijah had such a hard time not laughing. I enjoyed his book. It had the emotional tension that I love in a Feehan book with headstrong arrogant males and the woman that aren’t willing to compromise what they expect from the men they love and are strong enough to stand up to their arrogant ways.
