LEOPARD’S WRATH (A Leopard Novel, Book 12) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: November 5, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

0F46C69D-4FC1-45E8-9157-7CF09EE42A33He’s a man who’s used to getting what he wants, but she’s not the type of woman to take things lying down…

Born into a world of crime, Mitya Amurov has had a hard life, and his leopard has developed into a feral beast to protect him. It’s constantly trying to claw its way to the surface, until a chance encounter with a stranger instantly calms the predator inside him. While Mitya wants Ania desperately, it’s only a matter of time before his past catches up with him, and he’d rather die than put her in danger. But Ania is dealing with dangers of her own.…

Considering her family’s history, Ania Dover should know better than to get mixed up with a criminal like Mitya, but she just can’t stay away. Something wild in her responds to his presence. A need so strong it scares her. But she’s not sure she can accept what he’s offering. Ania has always been an independent woman, and Mitya expects to be obeyed in all things.

Even with her body calling out for his, Ania won’t let anything stop her from settling a deadly score years in the making—not even the man who wants to claim her as his mate.

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

This book is another adrenaline rush addition to the series. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about Mitya and his domineering ways, other than being sexy that is. In real life I wouldn’t put up with that for five minutes, but reading it is far different, and that is the nature of the Leopard series. I liked Ania, she was believable and not quite an easy push-over for his dominance. I love how she contributes to the storyline and kicks ass. I won’t give away the story except to say that I loved it. It carried on the established danger while adding a new dimension to keep us wanting more.

If you’ve read the series, you know that the leopards live in a world of intense violence and erotic sex. Dare I say that this installment had a bit too much sex? At times it seemed to take away from the flow of the story. Knowing they are about to discover a hidden game-changing clue and they stop to have sex? Those kinds of things had me shaking my head. All told, I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next one.

Review & Giveaway: DARK ILLUSION (A Carpathian Novel) by Christine Feehan

DARK ILLUSION (A Carpathian Novel, Book 33) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: September 3, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

41020C94-2B43-4142-B5D6-C0B7297AEC0AA mage and a warrior must see beyond their facades and embrace the bond that links their souls in this powerful Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

At any other time, Julija Brennan would find solace in the quiet of the Sierra Mountains, but now the mage is in the race of her life. Having broken free from her controlling family, Julija’s attempt to warn the Carpathians of the coming threat has failed and put a target on her back—and those who are hunting her are close behind.…

After centuries locked away in a monastery in the Carpathian Mountains, Isai Florea can’t believe he’s finally found his lifemate—the missing half of his soul. The second he sees Julija, his world blazes with color. But despite their explosive connection, Julija rebels against what she sees as Isai’s intent to control her and rejects the bond that would prevent him from becoming a monster.

As their unfulfilled bond continues to call to them both, Julija and Isai aim to complete the task that brought them together. They are used to facing danger alone, but now the mage and the ancient warrior must learn how to rely on each other in order to stop a plot that threatens all Carpathians.…

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

I enjoyed this installment – for the most part. Do I dare say that they are becoming repetitive? Nothing new except the characters themselves? 33 stories have pushed this romance series to its limit? I rated it a 4 because I like her writing style, and I get sucked into the Carpathian saga. Granted, I was rather worried at the beginning that I would not like Isai at all. His behavior when they first met pissed me off. Thankfully that changed and I understood him more. Julija’s motives and actions were also believable with her background, so nothing jumped out at me and I’m glad they got together and found their love. I sadly found myself almost speed-reading through the many spells and over-abundance of pages to describe one action. If you love the Carpathians, you will enjoy this book and how it leads into the next one…leaving some unresolved issues. It’s not a cliff-hanger, just readying the readers for what comes next.

Spotlight, Review & Giveaway: TOXIC GAME: A GhostWalker Novel by Christine Feehan

POWER GAME: A GhostWalker Novel by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: March 12, 2019

Genre: Paranormal Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

0B1EB084-643E-406C-BDCF-1B9965A38612#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan takes readers into the hot zone in this pulse-pounding GhostWalker novel.

On a rescue mission in the heart of the Indonesian jungle, Dr. Draden Freeman and his GhostWalker team need to extract the wounded as quickly as possible—or risk spreading a deadly virus unleashed by a terrorist cell. When Draden gets infected, he forces his team to leave him behind. He won’t risk exposing anyone else. He intends to find the ones responsible and go out in a blaze of glory….

Shylah Cosmos’s mission is to track the virus and remain unseen. Her enhanced senses tell her that the gorgeous man eradicating the terrorists one by one is a GhostWalker—and his lethal precision takes her breath away. When he’s hit by a lucky shot, she can’t stop herself from stepping in, not knowing that by saving his life she’s exposed herself to the virus.

There’s no telling how much time Draden and Shylah have left. Racing to find a cure, they quickly realize that they’ve found their perfect partner just in time to lose everything. But even as the virus threatens to consume their bodies, they’ve never felt more alive.

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! I loved this Ghostwalker installment. I do believe it is my favorite so far. There was no reluctant lover, long belaboring destined-mate, no secrets….just a romance that bloomed in hellish circumstances. They are both soldiers not only hardened by life, but infected with a horrific disease – despite that, or because of it, they bared their souls, stayed honest and left all games behind. I loved how Ms. Feehan blended the tender romance with the dangerous action….flawless. Draden and Shylah spent most of their time alone, yet the Ghostwalkers were with them enough to show the camaraderie and friendship that I have grown to love. Keep the tissues handy and sit back for a lovely ride. I truly hated to see it end.

Review: LEOPARD’S RUN (A Leopard Novel) by Christine Feehan

4D521B33-394F-49CD-B932-B1BF8773E0AE

LEOPARD’S BLOOD (A Leopard Novel, Book 11) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: November 6, 2018

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

185C3313-C8E2-4ADB-B138-07AC5892D106He keeps his emotions on a tight leash, but she can see the desire burning in his eyes…

Timur Amurov has one purpose in life: protect his family at all costs. With lethal skills honed from a violent upbringing, Timur is a leopard shifter who sees any newcomers as possible threats–and the petite blond barista who his sister-in-law, Evangeline, has hired to work in her bakery is definitely hiding something. While Timur still needs to determine if Ashe is an enemy, he does know that she is the only woman whose presence has ever truly calmed the beast roaring inside of him.

Ashe Bronte is well aware she has a type: sexy, gorgeous and dangerous as hell. Despite the fact that Timur is all those things and more, Ashe is in San Antonio for reasons that do not involve getting wild with a ruthless leopard–and she cannot afford to make any mistakes. But Timur has ignited something deep within her, and even though she knows she should keep her distance, every move he makes has her craving a taste…

~*~*~*~

Donna review 4.5 stars

This book is an intense addition to the Leopard Series. Timur is a dark and violent man, but Feehan managed to let us peek at the tenderness deep inside, which made him all the sexier. I loved Ashe. Strong, smart and capable of taking care of herself – especially standing up for her rights in the relationship. The final fight scene was one of my favorites and I wish I could say why without giving too much away. I enjoyed how their relationship grew. It went beyond the simple “mate attraction” and let their human half fall in love.

I’m a fan of Christine Feehan because each series has their own distinct tone. This series shows us the violent and dangerous world of these Leopards, blended with their intense erotic love lives. The beginning seemed to drag for me, but it sure made up for it, and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Overall it was a sexy and pulse-pumping ride of a story.

Review & Giveaway: SHADOW KEEPER (Shadow Riders Series) by Christine Feehan

SHADOW KEEPER (Shadow Riders Series, Book 3) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: May 29, 2018

Genre: Paranormal Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

4457DFDF-CEA5-4444-9E75-3C3B4DF38499One family brings its own brand of justice to the streets of Chicago’s shadowy underworld as #1 New York Timesbestselling author Christine Feehan returns to a series hot enough to burn…

The paparazzi can’t get enough of infamous bad boy Giovanni Ferraro. But unknown to them–and the women he beds–he’s just playing a role. Keeping the spotlight on himself keeps it off the family business. And if this lethal shadow rider can’t hunt in the dark, he’ll find his pleasure elsewhere…

Sasha Provis grew up on a Wyoming ranch and thought she knew how to protect herself from predators. But in the nightclub where she works, she’s fair game–until one of the owners steps in to protect her. Giovanni is gorgeous. He’s dangerous. And his every touch takes her breath away.

The devil at her heels may have finally met its match…

~*~*~*~

Donna review 4.5 stars

I loved this installment in the Shadow Rider series. The threat against Sasha was a complete mystery with twists and turns until the end. That made for a pulse-pumping read. I also liked that Sasha didn’t spend most of the book fighting the strong attraction to Giovanni. Although he came across as domineering and controlling, he also listened to her and gave her space to be semi-independent. In real life, I would kick chauvinistic men like the Ferraros to the curb, but it makes for a scintillating read. Like most of her books, it has super-hot sex – and a lot of it. I enjoy the series and can’t wait to read the next one.

Review & Giveaway: JUDGMENT ROAD (Torpedo Ink) by Christine Feehan

JUDGMENT ROAD (Torpedo Ink Series, Book 1) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: January 23, 2018 

Genre: Contemporary / Paranormal Romance 

Synopsis

1C5ACD6B-0E28-4BE6-AD47-FC3C79025CEEAn outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

A brutal education in a Russian training facility for assassins has taught this group of men one thing:

It’s a long road to redemption.

JUDGMENT ROAD.

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He’s a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can’t afford–until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin. . .

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she’s desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper’s imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya’s touch is everything Reaper doesn’t want–and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club–his heart and his soul.

~*~*~*~

Cori 5 Stars

When Christine Feehan announced this new series I was so excited and she didn’t disappoint me. I loved JUDGMENT ROAD! Hot bikers with paranormal abilities, danger and smoking hot romance make this series addicting. The Torpedo Ink MC is made up of survivors from a brutal Russian training facility. JUDGMENT INK is emotional, raw, gritty and has darker elements. There were times the story made cringe and want to cover my eyes rather than read the emotional scenes. Christine Feehan is a master storyteller and always delivers a story in a way that makes the reader feel like the story is coming alive and I felt a full range of emotions while reading this one.  I’m hooked and can’t wait to read each club member’s story. I recommend this series for romance lovers who enjoy a dark storyline and biker romance lovers will definitely love this one.

LEOPARD’S BLOOD (A Leopard Novel) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: October 24, 2017 

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

635C632F-B689-44B0-BC03-36321952F8CE#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…

~*~*~*~

Donna 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.

Nights in the swamp were often sultry. Heat and moisture drifted through the cypress groves and clung to the long shawls of lacy Spanish moss hanging from crooked branches. The long-fringed drapes swayed in the slight breeze adding a macabre feel to the already eerie night. Frogs chorused loudly, hundreds of them, calling out joyously while raccoons slipped noiselessly down to the duckweed-filled water to wash their paws. Two bull alligators challenged for territory, their bellows reverberating through the air.
Sonia Lopez followed the narrow game trail, the one she’d widened over the last few weeks that led deeper into the swamp. Insects droned all around her, a loud cacophony of sound. None stopped when she stepped lightly along the ground, a tribute to the fact that she’d spent every night for the last two months learning every inch of the piece of swamp that belonged to her. She owned forty acres and wanted to become acquainted with all of it. For this. She’d known it was coming, and she was very, very glad she’d prepared.
“We’re almost there,” she whispered softly. “Hold on. I know it’s hard.”
Something moved beneath her skin, a wave that pushed outward and then slid away, leaving behind a horrible itch that made her want to scratch until she bled. Her joints ached. She burned in her most feminine core, a savage, brutal need driving her deeper and deeper into the swamp. She was on fire. Every part of her, her body so sensitive, clothing hurt. Every movement brushed streaks of fire from her breasts to her sex. She ached. She needed. The only safe place she had was the swamp.
The grunt of a wild boar had her quickening her step. She had to get to the very heart of the swamp where she’d constructed a small blind, just big enough so she could have a thin mattress, strip, leave her clothing in relative safety and shift. Hurry. Hurry. Hurry. The words thundered in her ears accompanied by the drumming of her heart.
Sonia had allowed her leopard to run free when there was opportunity, ever since that first, shocking, terrifying appearance when the cat had saved her life. It had never been like this. This . . . this . . . necessity. She breathed deep as her joints began to pop. Her knuckles were on fire, the ache becoming a terrible pain that wouldn’t let up. “Wait. Just try for me, Gatita. Just try to hang on. We’re close.”
She didn’t dare let her cat loose anywhere near civilization. Not now. Not ever, but now was the most important. Gatita was definitely in heat. That meant Sonia was in heat and couldn’t be any place a man might be. She didn’t trust herself. She had had no idea the heat would be so intense, such a terrible force driving her beyond all endurance.
Her leopard was in need, and if the way her body was burning was any indication, her cat was going up in flames. She tried running, but stumbled when her toes began to curl down. The blind was just ahead and she threw herself forward those last few feet, tugging her shirt over her head and pulling off her shoes. Her jeans were next. She was usually good about folding clothes and being neat, but there was no time. Her female was in trouble, and Sonia was driven to help her.
Nothing had prepared her for the brutal hunger, the need filling her mind and body until she wanted to scream. Nothing helped. She’d tried. Toys. Fingers. She’d given up, sobbing, standing under the cold of the shower until she realized that wouldn’t help. Nothing would help. And it was far worse for Gatita.

3.5 stars Donna

This addition to the series carried on with the ongoing story of the rescued children and their caregivers. The romance was of course, hot – and the threatening danger started on page one. All that said, it was not a favorite Carpathian novel of mine, other than it moved the story along. It seemed to have a lot of the same things happening over and over. Different people, but repetitive actions that became boring. Dragomir and Emeline were nothing memorable either. I had hoped for something new to keep the Carpathian world exciting. I did enjoy it, just not near as much as the earlier ones.

This had been her worst nightmare, the dream occurring over and over for the last month. Emeline knew she shouldn’t run to her house. If she did, the Carpathian known as Dragomir would die. He always died saving her. She’d tried to avoid this destiny. She’d made certain not to meet him, never to speak to him, yet here she was, forced to make a split-second decision. If she didn’t make it to her house, Vadim would have her again and there would be no stopping him.
“Don’t follow,” she pleaded, rushing up her steps. She knew Dragomir would. He was one step behind Vadim. She knew coming after Dragomir was Vadim’s army of horrible creatures. Vadim had already weakened her, taking her blood. Her neck burned, a fierce, intolerable pain that spread through her like wildfire.
Vadim waved his hand and her door stuck as she tried to jerk it open. She turned to face him, despair moving through her. Despair. Sorrow. Fear—although she was almost beyond fear. Back to the door, she slid down until her bottom hit the porch, knees up. She already knew exactly how the scenario would play out. Dragomir was on the stairs, and Vadim swung around to face him.
Emeline forced herself to look at the ancient warrior. He was the opposite of everything Vadim was. Roped muscles, scars, waist-length salt-and-pepper hair. He looked rugged. Tough. Scary. He had tattoos drifting up his neck so he looked a little like a modern-day outlaw biker. Vadim, despite his head being blown off repeatedly, always managed to restore his flawless, model looks. At first glance, one would be terrified of Dragomir, not Vadim, and that would be a very big mistake.
Her breath caught in her throat as Dragomir continued right up the stairs toward Vadim. She wanted to close her eyes, but she couldn’t. She’d witnessed his death over and over in her nightmare. She always woke up when he went down and she never saw the outcome, only that he sacrificed his life for hers. She felt the least she could do was watch. More—this time, she planned to aid him.
Her hand dropped to the pocket of the long dress she wore. Once before, after continually trying new things in her dreams, she’d changed the outcome of the future. She was determined to do the same this time, or die trying. Time slowed down. Just as she knew it would, the air exploded with more vampires, and as they appeared, the Carpathian hunters joined in the fight.

Review & Giveaway: SHADOW REAPER (Shadow Riders Series) by Christine Feehan

IMG_8531

SHADOW REAPER (Shadow Riders Series, Book 2) by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: May 30, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance/ Romantic Suspense

Synopsis

IMG_8534#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to her scorching-hot series starring a Chicago crime family that has built its empire in the shadows…

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood — but so is a haunting desperation stemming from the secrets of his dark past. His recklessness puts not only his life at risk, but also the future of his entire family. To save them all, he must find a woman who can meet his every desire with a heat all her own…

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her — a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his. She’s someone looking for a safe haven from the danger that has stalked her over the last several months. In Ricco’s embrace, she finds one. But the darkness in which they so often find sanctuary can also consume them…

~*~*~*~

Donna 5 Stars

Wow! I loved this installment in the Shadow Riders series. It started fast and never let me up for air. Wild, heart thumping action; tempered with a sensual and hot romance. Ricco is a hard man to describe, there were so many enticing layers to him. I liked Mariko from the start. Strong, intelligent and loyal. She had so many obstacles in her life, yet she wasn’t bogged down by them. I really wanted them both to be happy, so they could go on enjoying that big family of his. I like how the Ferraros banter, then get down to scary business. I think this is one book that I’ll be reading again, just so I can get psyched up for the next one.

Review: BOUND TOGETHER: A Sea Haven Novel by Christine Feehan

IMG_7284

BOUND TOGETHER: A Sea Haven Novel, Book 6 by Christine Feehan

Publication Date: March 21, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

IMG_7274For five years, Viktor Prakenskii has put his life on hold in order to take down the world’s most feared motorcycle club from the inside. But carrying out the insane violence and seeing the club’s exploitation of the innocent has brought his traumatic past roaring back. And there’s only one cure: to see the wife he left behind…

Blythe Daniels thought she’d never see Viktor again after he murdered her stepfather and left without a word. She rebuilt her life without him, becoming a personal trainer and physical therapist…becoming strong enough for others to lean on. But when Viktor comes back to Sea Haven, he’ll make Blythe question everything she thought she knew about good and evil—and the dark desires of the heart…

~*~*~*~

Donna 4 stars

I enjoyed the mixture of MCs and the paranormal, as it gives the stories a lot more depth. I did have a hard time warming up to Blythe and Viktor, I’m glad they found each other, but I was not able to relate to them. The danger and climax of the story was a real ‘page turner’, and their sexy romance was hot and inventive. I am also glad that the group dynamics and interaction was constant, so it could make reading about their dark, disturbing past a little easier. I liked it and the Sea Haven series.
