The latest Wild Leopard romantic bayou fantasy is an exciting whodunit

Saria Boudreaux grew up on the Louisiana Bayou, which may explain why she feels a special affinity to the place's eeriest secrets. However, even Saria is taken aback when she finds several corpses all containing leopard bites. She fears for her older brothers, who are were-leopards though she knows her siblings would not commit these atrocities.

Saria decides not to call the cops, but instead contacts the land owner Jake Bannaconni. He sends Drake Donovan to investigate the serial killings. At first sight (and sniff) Drake realizes that Saria is his mate as he struggles to control his euphoric inner leopard. He also senses she is on the verge of her first shift. As he makes inquiries into the murders and starts his courtship of his beloved, Drake learns a lesson about life on the Bayou when none of the leopard-shifting families including Saria's kin cooperate.

The latest Wild Leopard romantic bayou fantasy (see Wild Fire and Burning Wild) is an exciting whodunit as a serial killer stalks the Louisiana swamps. The bayou locale adds a strong sense of foreboding that feels even more uneasy with each corpse. That strong fearful strangeness accentuates the feuding shifter clans. However, the exhilarating story line belongs to the lead couple as he knows she is his mate, but must be cautious while she wonders why he has not jumped her bones.

I have probably read every book that Christine Feehan has ever written, even her books that are not in series, as well as her e-books. with that said, in the last few years I've noticed that her style of writing has change somewhat. Nothing completely major, but I have to say that with some of the last books shes written in her other series honestly have been hit or miss. Savage Nature was better, but it got repetitive and boring in parts, and I got really annoyed that she made another leading character use the term "hussy" about her leopard or cat. She needs to branch out with another term, every Leopard book shes written the female lead has referred to her cat as a hussy. And she kept repeating it! It just got annoying. The leading couple didn't mesh well for me either, I felt that Saria was too immature, and bratty. I just didn't get it.....I'm not trying to say that this book was bad, the storyline was good, I liked where Christine took us this time. Shes had other bayou stories but this was more in depth and I can really see the potential of the other characters and books to come. Its going to get better!! :)
