#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan cuts straight to the heart of a man who stalks the shadows in an intoxicating Leopard novel.
Though he was born into a leopard’s lair in the bayou, Joshua Tregre’s fighting skills were honed in the rain forests of Borneo. Sleek and deadly, he’s the perfect man to take over a crime syndicate back home in Louisiana’s lush swamplands. His razor-sharp instincts give him an edge in the violent underworld he knows so well, but even the watchful leopard inside him isn’t prepared for the threat that comes from the girl next door...
She is a woman who can create beauty out of thin air—and out of the ruins of her own life. The games that dangerous men play have taken their toll on her, but she is bent, not broken. And it’s her fierce spirit that’s like a lure to Joshua, a temptation he can’t resist—even if it means bringing his true nature into the light...

LEOPARD’S BLOOD is the tenth installment in Christine Feehan’s contemporary, adult LEOPARD erotic, paranormal romance series focusing on the supernatural world of the Leopard shifter. This is businessman Joshua Tregre and artist/carpenter Sonia Lopez’s story line. LEOPARD’S BLOOD can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary although LEOPARD’S BLOOD continues to follow the author’s latest series arc focusing on the Russian and Italian mafia. Told from dual third person points of view (Joshua and Sonia) LEOPARD’S BLOOD follows the building relationship between leopard shifters Joshue Tregre, and Sonia Lopez. Following the murder of her father and the death of her mother Sonia found herself indebted to the Russian mob. Escaping to the swamplands of Louisiana, our heroine works as a home rebuilder until the fated day her internal beast goes maddeningly into heat. Enter Joshua Tregre, Sonia’s neighbor and her would be mate who claims our heroine as his own. What ensues is the insta-lust/love between two people more animal than human, and the potential fall-out when Sonia’s past comes seeking revenge. Like all Leopard males Joshua Tregre is an over –possessive, over-protective alpha who claims his mate before anyone else. His need to protect is controlling but our heroine needs to be protected from a past seeking revenge. Sonia is willing to place herself in danger to protect the people she loves but she is not as capable of defending herself against men and leopards twice her size. The back and forth, yin and yang of their relationship is somewhat volatile but unlike many of the author’s previous story line heroes Joshua Tregre is a little tamer, and not willing to break the will of his leopard mate. The $ex scenes are erotic and intense; Joshua needs to mark his mate to warn others of their mating. There are some scenes of light spanking (discipline) and toy play. We are reintroduced to Alonzo Massi’s (Leopard’s Fury #9) brothers and cousins -Gorya, Timur and Mitya; Joshua’s right hand man Evan; Sonia’s friend Molly Sheffield, and police detective Bastien Foret; and Russian mobsters Nikita and Sasha Bogomolov. There are many mentions of, but no appearances by previous story line leopards including Jake Bannaconni, Eli Perez, Elijah Lospostos, Alonzo Massi, and Drake Donovan. The world building continues to look at the world of the leopard shifter with mentions of Borneo, and the abusive earlier lives of many of the leopard males; there are some threats of rape, murder ands sexual assault but the author does not go into livid detail as in previous series and stories. LEOPARD’ S BLOOD, although bloody and violent does not go into graphic detail. LEOPARD’S BLOOD is a story of fated mates; of a shifter breed capable of violence and murderous rage but a shifter that is also capable of romance and love. The premise is exciting and action packed; the characters are colorful and lively; the romance is provocative and seductive.

I can't not keep reading this book. I've read it multiple times and I still can't get over how amazing it is. This book more than fulfilled my wish for a great Joshua Tregre novel.

I've said this before, it is hard for me to read x-rated parts of this series. This book was fascinating because of the twist and turns. Thank you. D.J.

This one was passionate x 100 from start to finish. It kind of reminded me of Eli Perez and Catarina’s story, the one I’m not a fan of, but unlike that one this didn’t have that domineering vibe to it. It was crazy how they kept at it but their story and their struggle to trust also came through. When the truth comes out and Joshua is terrified of losing her and Sonia is devastated by yet another betrayal it was hard to watch.  I felt so sad for her and for him. He was nothing like her past experiences but she didn’t know that and the fears were so ingrained in her, of course, she was going to jump to the wrong conclusions. I like that he didn’t hold it against her but rather worked to prove to her he wasn’t wrong for her. Their story was intense, action-packed, and passionate. Not my favorite in the series but I did enjoy it.

Leopard's Blood grabs you from the first pages and doesn't stop, the difference in this book is the leopards mate first, the hard part is getting Sonia to trust in Josh enough to have a true mating. She has been betrayed in the past and she is not ready to trust so easily, plus in her heart she knows Joshua is a good man, good leader and she doesn't want to bring trouble to his door, and in her heart she knows that her past will catch up to her and soon. Joshua knows he can protect Sonia from her past, but he also knows he is bringing her into a life that she doesn't want, but that together they can have a true bonding and have a fulfilling life and family. He just has to convince her of that, which won't be easy! This book is very sexual, raw and powerful, if that is not enough it is also filled with plenty of action. Fast paced and packed with emotion. The Leopard series is one of my favorites, I am always ready for my next fix!

Joshua and Sonia have been born and bred in the brutally violent leopard families where death and betrayal is a way of life. When her husband blows up her car, Sonia realizes that there is no one left to trust except herself. She disappears ready to make a life for herself by herself. Joshua’s rise in the underworld of Borneo and the Louisiana swamplands puts him in a position that is highly dangerous to have his attention divided. Their Leopards know that they are mated, now it is a race for their human sides to believe and find trust in each other before they are torn apart by the Russian leopards determined to ruin their chance to find love. Leopard’s Blood is an emotional roller coaster ride for two people raised in families where intrigue, betrayal and brutality are the norm. To take the chance to believe and trust that they are mates is a challenge that is dealt with throughout the book. Ms. Feehan’s 1st chapter set the stage for them to find each other in a scorching hot mating of their leopards that left me needing a cool drink and a craving to finish this excellent addition to the Leopard series!

Review: LEOPARD’S BLOOD (A Leopard Novel) by Christine Feehan Publication Date: October 24, 2017 Genre: Paranormal Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Donna Rated 5 Stars This is a super-sexy, exciting story. At first, I was afraid that Joshua would turn out to be a one-dimensional dominating male – he wasn’t. He was dominant, but full of heart and emotion as well. I grew to like him quickly. Sonia was also someone I could relate to, and how she viewed things going on around her. It was a well written and fast paced romance that either had me swooning or cringing as I turned the pages. *Review copy provided by Penguin in exchange for an honest review.

Leopards Blood by Christine Feehan Paperback October 24, 2017 Sonia Lopez was in heat, her leopard was in heat and she could not be anywhere near a man may be.

Little did she know that the swamp land she considered her safe haven would bring her mate and the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe. The last thing Joshua Tregre expected was to find his mate in the swampland’s as he was preparing to take over a crime syndicate. Trained in the rain forests of Borneo Joshua is a skilled and deadly fighter. Will his skills be enough to keep his women, his mate safe? Christine Feehan finally gives us the long awaited story of Joshua Tregre. As always the story line brings us strong characters that can reach out to readers. Packed with action, mystery, and suspense, with a touch of Christine’s sense of humor, comedy and romance leaving the reader turning each page with anticipation.
