Usually, if Thea Harrison was releasing a new book, it would be my pick of the week. But to be honest, I don’t have a lot of excitement for this week’s Midnight’s Kiss. Maybe it was because I am sort of considering this one a continuation of the story in the last book, Night’s Honor, and I found it a little dull. Or maybe it is because I tend to like the Wyr stories more than the other races. Either way, I am meh about it.
So, it looks like my pick of the week will be from Christine Feehan instead. Cat’s Lair is part of her Leopard People series, and it introduces a couple of new characters as the leads. I am over half-way through, and it isn’t bad. I do tend to snicker a bit through a Feehan book, but that is pretty much the norm for me.
Cat Benoit has finally escaped the past—and the man who was the source of her nightmares. She’s off the grid, underground but watchful, and creating a new life for herself in Texas, far from the torrid dangers of her native New Orleans. She’s safe. He’ll never find her this time. Cat has to believe that. It’s the only thing keeping her sane.
Yet she can’t escape the attention of Ridley Cromer, the instructor at the martial arts dojo where Cat takes lessons. She arouses the animal in Ridley—and something feral comes to life when their body heat rises. Cat is in no position to let her guard down with anyone, especially someone who could be endangered by her past. But Ridley has secrets of his own—secrets only Cat would understand. If she dares to trust him.
