The eighth book in Christine Feehan’s Leopard People series, WILD CAT, is a return to Feehan’s earlier writing style that fans of shapeshifter romances are going to really enjoy.

Siena Arnotto was raised by her grandfather, a man that many dangerous rumors surround that she has mostly ignored all her life.  Now that her education is complete, Siena returns to her grandfather’s home.  When he asks Siena to deliver a gift to one of their family friends, she happily agrees.  One look at Elijah Lospostos has her hormones going crazy and the next thing she knows, Siena is having sex in his entryway that ends in the death of an intruder that Elijah accuses Siena of bringing into his home to assassinate him.  Siena returns home embarrassed, confused and hurt only to discover that the rumors about her grandfather are true and that she is a leopard shifter, in heat for the first time.  When her grandfather is murdered, she runs to the one man she knows she can trust, Elijah.

Christine Feehan’s WILD CAT is a welcome return to Feehan’s earlier writing style that really pays off in the form of a fast paced and emotion packed romance that Feehan fans are bound to love.  WILD CAT is less a story filled with hot sex and more a story of discovery and growth.

Siena is smart yet extremely naïve, ignoring the rumors surrounding her grandfather until the truth bites her in the heart.  It was a horrible way to find out about her Leopard heritage and combined with the revelations about her grandfather, is a shock that leaves her reeling.  Elijah shares many traits with his leopard; he is extremely dominant and aggressive and is shocked and appalled at his behavior toward Siena once he realizes she is his mate.  But once he does, Elijah does what is needed to make his mate his first priority.

Feehan’s WILD CAT is sure to please fans with its deep emotional depths and shocking discoveries as well as those that enjoy shapeshifter romances with complex characters finding love when it is least expected.
