Meet the Author

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

    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.

    Savage Nature

    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!! :)

    good to see familar characters and meet new ones

    Its fun to see some of the same characters and meet new ones. Drake has had his leg operated on and he is ready to see if he can change into a panther again. He has not been able to do it for over 2 years and had given up on being able to change again.

    Saria is a young woman who has run wild in the swamps around her family. Her dad was a drunk and her mom died when she was little and her brothers were older by at least 8 years and she was alone with her dad for years while her brothers left home for armed forces. She is a guide in the swamp and is starting to get recongition for her photos. she cooked clean house and worked traped aligators, fished and hunted and mangage the store and bar her family has had in the swamp from 10 years old.

    While she is in the swamp at night in a blind trying to get a photo of baby birds she notices strange things in a remote place no one goes too. so after they leave she goes and finds a dead body that has been killed with a knife and panther bite. She found out really young that her brothers were able to shift into panthers and as far as she knew none else can do that and her brothers dont talk to her about it. Her oldest brother is a homacide detective so she doesnt want to go to police. So she writes a letter to owner of the land jake and sneaks it out and Drake and his team come to find out who the murder is and whats going on thier;

    I enjoyed the book. skiped pages of love scenes.

    Ho hum! Can it be any more boring?

    I am listening to this story as a book on tape. I have never heard a more boring and pedantic story in my life! I love this author's Ghostwalker series. It's action packed and actually has a plot. I am in chapter 2 but i've already fast fowarded twice. Sadly, i found that i hadn't missed any of the plot when i resumed the playback. Don't waste your money.

    Good Book

    I read the back and really wasn't feeling the book; well once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Was a good read, got slow in a few parts but even so the detail and the feel you get for the characters is all worth the drag of certain parts. Definitely making this a must read for Christine Feehan fans.

    Great Book

    Great book. Somehow I managed to skip this book and went back to read it.
    Loved the story, loved the suspense, the dark handsome leading men. Our heroine is
    strong and very independent.

    Read Savage Nature!!!

    My first foray into the Leopard's series proves to be a very good choice. The world of the shifters and leopards shines in their own way as CF's Carpathians do. The way of life on the Bayou is so intriguing and tradition-ed filled that I can't help but be fascinated! The relationships through the book vary from familial to love and more, Saria is the ultimate heroine and Drake's really the one for her. Ever the level-headed and cool leader he is startled by his reaction to Saria. Drakes is really the person Saria needs as she goes through the difficult process of her Leopard emerging. The side characters are hardly dull in comparison to our leading couple.They practically dominate the pages in their own special ways! I love the beautiful relationship between Saria and her surrogate mother Pauline. There's so much love there that you can't help but root for them. The main couple's romance was amazing and I loved reading about the intricate relationship between leopards! The murder mystery romance is an ultimate thrill ride with secrets that you hardly want to leave! Get me the other Leopard book now!
