4/5 Review: Wild Cat by Christine Feehan




A simple request for Siena Arnotto: deliver a gift to her grandfather’s friend. One look at Elijah Lospostos, hard-bodied and stripped to the waist, and Siena succumbs to a feline stirring she never felt before, and to Elijah’s reckless and pleasurable demands. But when that pulse-throbbing moment ends in the murder of an unexpected intruder, Elijah accuses the shaken and confused Siena of setting him up.
Then Siena discovers the truth of her Leopard heritage, of the secrets in her grandfather’s inner circle, and the sinister plot of revenge that has put her in jeopardy. When Siena’s grandfather is assassinated, she realizes the only man she can trust is Elijah. Now as her Leopard rises from within, Siena and Elijah share not only an animal instinct for survival—but a desire so raw and wild it may be the only thing that can save them.


**********

Wild Cat is the eighth instalment in the Leopard Series by Christine Feehan.  I have loved Ms Feehan's books since discovering her first book and this latest book doesn’t disappoint.  It has all the sexiness, intrigue and plus a brilliant storyline that any fan has come to expect.  Just like all her other books in this series, they can be read as a stand alone as we are always updated with a little bit of of the prior storyline, but its best read as a series.

I loved the dynamics of Elijah and Siena.  They are so powerful together with such tenderness that you fall in love with them both.  At the start of the book you may want to smash some sense into Elijah but he makes up for his shortcomings pretty quickly.
 
Sienna is the very typical protected princess that we have all read about, but there is one huge difference and that is she really isnt a little princess.  She is wild at heart and has such a sweet soul that trusts her grandfather fully.  It isnt until she unravels the biggest betrayal that she learns some very important truths about herself and with the help of Elijah can make peace with her life.
 
Elijah you could see as the hero from the start of the book and I really believe he was going to be the first “main” character that I couldn’t stand and even wondered if I would be able to get through the whole book.  From his arrogant and harsh personality to the way he could treat someone so badly the really started off as “what was CF thinking” few moments.  Thankfully Elijah was able to show his sweeter side and his more truthful side.  Yes he was always harsh, but he loved deeply and was willing to protect what was his with his soul.
Loved this book.  Loved the characters.  Loved the depth of the story.  Well done Ms Feehan.
