There isn’t a lot coming out this week, but there is one that I am guardedly looking forward to. Even though I often poke some fan-girl fun at Christine Feehan, I do still faithfully grab all of her books as soon as I can, and this week’s Leopard’s Fury won’t be an exception. But even though I still read all of her series, some recent changes in tone and feel have made the books hit or miss for me. I did check out the excerpt that was recently released for Leopard’s Fury, and I can confirm that, as per my Feehan Female Formula:
- the female lead is indeed small and curvy
- she has long, thick dark hair
- works hard, but doesn’t have much
- is a brilliant baker, so has the homemaker thing down
Still to be determined:
- sweetly submits to his every command, usually involving using the word “honey”
- wears floor-length skirts and soft, vintage blue jeans
- is at some point bought ruffled boots by her leading man
So, my pick of the week is Leopard’s Fury. Let’s see how this one goes.
With her own bakery in San Antonio, Evangeline Tregre made a new life far from the brutal lair of shifters she was born into. Though she is all too aware of her leopard-shifter blood, she never felt the sensation of a wild animal stirring inside her. Not until Alonzo Massi walked into her bakery. The powerful shifter is as irresistible as he is terrifying, but his icy demeanor tells her to keep her distance.
Alonzo knows better than to let himself get involved with someone like Evangeline. She doesn’t deserve the type of danger that follows him, or the threat of his Amur leopard. But even with his lean muscle and iron will, Alonzo isn’t strong enough to stay away from the one woman who can make him feel at peace. And when their secret lives draw a mortal threat, Alonzo unleashes the feral passion he keeps pent up inside himself.
I liked Alonzo in the last book, so hopefully that will translate into this one. So, yes or no for you on Leopard’s Fury? Did anything else catch your fancy this week?
