Review & Giveaway: CAT’S LAIR (Leopard Series Book 7) by Christine Feehan



(Leopard Series Book 7)

by Christine Feehan

Publication Date:  May 5, 2015



The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Leopard’s Prey returns to the feral underworld of her astonishing Leopard novels in an arousing new romance of forbidden animal instincts…

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.

I like that Cat is vulnerable but still shows she is strong, intelligent and capable. Ridley also appreciates that and trains to her strengths. Ridley is hot and sexy of course but I found him a little too domineering and controlling for my tastes. Cat loved that about him so it worked for the plot-line. The story focused mainly on building their relationship while waiting for danger to come and when the danger finally found them it was explosive, a very nice climax that had me reading as fast as I could to see what happened. I loved it.
