“Someone was trying to kill her.”

This was an adult paranormal romance featuring leopard shifters.
(This is the second book in the Leopard people series.)

Rio and Rachael were both strong characters in this story. Both had been hunted before, and both knew how to take care of themselves, even when that led to further problems! I felt quite sorry for Rachael, as it seemed like her problems weren’t of her own making, and for her to then be injured and unable to take care of herself really bothered
Rachael Lospostos is leaving her old life behind by traveling to the rain forest (with a new name and a new identity) on a medical relief boat full of medical supplies for regions in need. When the boat she is on stops the passengers get ambushed by bandits with guns and Rachael flees into the rain forest. While hiding out in a tree house she falls asleep and gets woken by a leopard that attacks her by biting her leg. There is also a man there, with the leopards, who ends up tending to her injur ...more

Rio Santana & Rachael Lospostos
Settings: Borneo

Her parents were murdered when Rachel and her brother Elijah were children. Her uncle let them live and her brother has been heavily involved in the drug empire.
What Elijah never told her is that he can shift into a leopard and that possibly she can shift too but this has not happened yet.

The 2nd book in this series and what a fabulous world Christine Feehan has created.
From vampires to leopard shifters – from the Carpathian Mountains to the rainforests of Borneo, the wilds of America….and just as captivating.

Although it had a little bit of a slow start, Wild Rain turned out to be another winner for me. I can see how Christine Feehan's writing style doesn't work for everyone. She is very wordy. But I like that she really puts a lot of detail into descriptions of the setting and the feelings of the characters. It adds to the atmosphere and the emotional intensity of her stories, which is why she's a favorite of mine.

Ah, the jungle descriptions. Simply gorgeous. I wanted to be there, so bad, except for

Wild Rain is the second in the Leopard series, and one that once I had finished felt deeply satisfied. I It is my favorite among the series so far, it was a intense but tender love story between two people that find themselves drawn into a suspenseful plot that will send them both fighting for their lives.

Rachel Lospostos, is a young woman where life has been unjustly cruel to her, and those that she has come to care for. Rachael's parents were killed when she was young, and she and her brother

A thrilling ride through the survival of a leopard attack, torturous pain, fever and past life confusion.

Wild Rain is the second book in Christine Feehan’s leopard series. This book is the story of Rio and Rachael.

Rio is a male shape-shifting leopard who has been banished from the village of his people. He works with a team that rescues or assassinates psycho bad dudes.

Rachael (I’ll be vague because I refuse to write a spoiler heh) is running from her past. She flees to the rainforest in attempt

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

I own this book in paperback, and it is the 2nd book in the series and a full novel. This is for adults only due to the steamy content.

I loved Rio and Rachael’s story. It was full of action and twists and turns. I especially loved Fritz and Franz. Rachael is full of spirit and stands for what she believes in. They both have a past that they aren’t really interested in sharing. Rio has

So Rachael is running. She thinks she can get lost in the Rainforest. She's prepared for it. Taken some defense classes, read a lot, rock climbed and packed a thong. She's ready to rough it. *eyeroll* She makes her grand escape and winds up stumbling across Rio's home and like Goldilocks, makes herself at home.

Rio is just getting back from another tough mission rescuing kidnapped/ransom victims from jungle crime lords. It's what he does. He's tired and cranky and thinks an assassin has

Christine Feehan has once again launched her readers into a world where anything can, and usually does, happen---with a nice, big dose of the sexy paranormal thrown in. Feehan fans and newcomers alike won't be able to help being enthralled by the lush setting of this book, the hunky hero, the sleek jaguars of the jungle, and a heroine who is too damn spunky to let a little matter of being hunted get her down. Definitely a winner!

OMG what an amazing book!!!!!. I have not been reading this series in order but not to worry as you do not miss out on anything in the history of this amazing race, CF makes sure that you are aware of the history and background. If you love shifters together with a hot alpha male then read this one as Rio and Rachael will not disappoint. I cannot wait to see if Elijah will get his own story.

The second story in Christine Feehans Leopard people series. Its set in a beautiful and dangerous rain forest. This book pulls readers in from page one and doesnt let go until the last word has been read.

Progression of Reading a Good Christine Feehan Book:

25%: What the hell is going on? Why is the heroine so capable but then immediately put into a position where the hero has to take care of her? WE KNOW HE'S A LEOPARD SHIFTER ALREADY, JESUS. THAT'S THE POINT OF THE BOOK. Oh, look, random research about leopards. This is going to be a long book...

50%: This is getting a lot better, but I still can't believe that they're totally doing it even though his pet leopard NEARLY BIT HER LEG OFF in the fir

Well, well, well. My first wallbanger of the year and its from one of my favorite authors.

In a nutshell, this book sucked.

- no character development. if there's a prequel to this book it would have been nice to have read it. apparently it explains a whole heck of a lot of things.

-heroine is stupid. she is VIOLENTLY attacked by the hero's "pet leopards", nearly has her leg torn off, suffers days and weeks of fever and infection and then one day she magically "gets over it" because the hero expl

This was my first Christine Feehan book. I was under the impression she was cheezy, because of the common complaint in several reviews, make fun of her always using 'velvet sheath' as her romantic, hot sexy vagina word. They were right, it is overly used. Velvet is dry and somewhat fuzzy, so it bugged me too!! SOooo sorry!! Other authors use better words, descriptions, and don't over use the description. I got to where I skipped those parts entirely.

Overall, though, it was a pretty good story.

This book had an intriguing premise. I love the shape-shifting leopard people and the wild jungle setting.

There were two huge problems with this book that kept me from loving the story. First, this author made the common error of thinking that she could create drama by withholding information. This seems to happen in romance more than other genres, the information coming out when one confesses to the other, but in this case, by the time it came out, I was past the point of caring. It was just to

The more I read of this series the more I love it! Rio and Rachael were the perfect couple and I loved both of their characters. Both strong, both selfless they seemed to be a perfect match, suited perfectly to each other so it made total sense to me that they were soul mates.

I also really loved the descriptions of the rainforest. Feehan really brought that setting alive and as I was reading, I remembered how delicate and important such environments are.

A really great romantic read; not every

Wild Rain is book 2 of Christine Feehan’s series Leopard People. The Awakening, book 1, I was immediately attracted to Christine’s eloquent and detailed descriptions of rain forests and the significant role the climatic conditions play in the background. This landscape provide a huge amount of natural medicines even used today, and some are even exposed in this entertaining book as brown pastes and other salves.

This second book in the series was definitely better than the first. I absolutely adored the interactions between Rio and Rachel. I get so sick of whiny heroines who can't do anything for themselves and need a big, strong man to do everything for them. And on the flip side, I hate the heroines who are so over-the-top feminist that they could turn washing their hands into an argument about the unfair treatment of women, or some bull mess like that. Rachel and Rio both gave as well as they took, a ...more

Book #2 in the Leopard series and it really ticked me off how this book was marketed. It is not NEW, but repackaged.

Warning A,: If you already have the book "Fever" you already have this book! "Fever" includes: "Wild Rain" (book #2) and "The Awakening" (book #1) in the Leopard Series. It's a large-size paperback.

This copy of "Wild Rain" is identical except the print is very small and it's in a mass market paperback. So get out a magnifying glass to read it.

I was surprised and happy to start Wild Rain on audio and find out Renee Raudman was narrating. I really like her narrating the Kate Daniels series, and I enjoyed her in Wild Rain, but I kept thinking of Curran instead of Rio.

Anyhow I wasn't sure I was such a fan of Christine Feehan's writing style, but I really enjoyed Wild Rain. Rio and Rachael we great together and while the story dragged at times, the characters more than made up for it. I'm looking forward to reading more about the Leopard

This book is a lush as the setting. The erotic quotient is through the roof and I really, really enjoyed the world building. Christine Feehan is a very detailed writer and that might be a problem for some. This is not a fast-paced book. I'm hoping that because this is book one, the time world-building is well spent for book two.
Boring, predictable and not at all filled with a realistic view of the world. The settings are exotic but the writer contiues to have white characters in these locations. People there are not white, surely the writing can reflect that a bit more.

A 4 1/2 star read. I enjoyed this book a lot, it drug a little in spots but was really good from the time the details about Rachel's brother are known until the end.
