Blurb (from Goodreads):
In the new Leopard novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Cat’s Lair and Leopard’s Prey, passions explode like wildfire when a young woman’s feral instincts are ignited by a man who’s too dangerous not to desire…
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.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
“Believe me, baby, you belong to me. I don’t give up what’s mine.”
This was a sexy paranormal romance, with a bit of excitement.
I felt quite sorry for Siena in this story, as the way Elijah threw her out of his house and the things he said to her were awful. I really didn’t blame her for hating him, and could understand why she didn’t want to let that behaviour go so easily.
The storyline in this had a bit of excitement with some deaths, plotting, illegal businesses, and even some fighting, and it was a lot more exciting than the previous book in the series!
There was obviously quite a bit of romance in this one too, and the sex scenes were pretty steamy, although they did get a bit repetitive by the end.
The ending to this was okay, and I hope that we’ll find out more about what happens to Siena and Elijah next in future books.
