Savage Nature (Leopard People #5)
The leopard people are not normally my favorite, but my coworker told me to give the series a second chance and I am so glad I did! This book had everything I am looking for in a paranormal- a fun fast paced mystery, well drawn characters...more

With Savage Nature, the fifth in the Leopard series, Christine Feehan moves the setting from the Rain Forests of South America to the swamps of the Louisiana Bayou. She stays with her standard “couples are fated to be together” style but the story is interesting in other ways and moves at a fast pace. Beyond the main couple, Feehan’s other standard is to bring in a su...more

Saria is a leopard unaware of her heritage. She knows that something is wrong in the bayou, afraid of everyone she asks for help Jake (the hero of Burning Wild). Jake sends Drake. Saria is immediately attracted to him, but incredibly confused by everything that is happening to her. The fact that there’s a serial killer after her doesn’t help.
The moment Drake sees Saria he is aware that she is his mate – a mate he’s been waiting for a long time. He’...more

Saria, photographer and swamp guide, has the Louisiana swamp in her blood. Her five brothers are shape shifting leopards; she'd caught them shifting in the middle of the night in the swamp when she was 10. She is 16 y...more
The mystery in this book is complex, and would have been a satisfying story without the romance. The romance is also complex, and would have been a satisfying story without the mystery. Lucky readers,...more
Saria Boudreaux is a great heroine - smart, capable and able to hold her own. She's basically raised herself since childhood, and knows the swamp better than anyone else. But lately s...more
Her characters are always fantastic but I really liked Saria, the heroine, in this story. She is tough, confident, honorable and yet vulnerable. The hero i...more
I liked this book. There's a shifter community in swamps in new Orleans - and this book is an introduction to them. Saria Boudreaux has known her brothers are shifters, and she knows something is killing people in the marshland that belong with Jake Bannaconni, (hero from book 3, Burning Wild) and it looks very much like a shifter kill.
So she jots him a letter letting him know something weird is going on and gets Drake Donovan in return.
Drake wasn’t as much of an idiot as the heroes fr...more
Saria was great as a wild child raised in the bayou, running free as a small child, which gave her great knowledge of the land and what to expect. It is in her roaming ways that she discovers things tha...more
I originally hadn’t planned to do a review for this book, but Saria made me. Savage Nature is book 5 in Christine Feehan’s Leopard People series. There’s an element of suspense in each book, but the stories are really about the shifters, their lairs and finding their mates. The mates “know” each other once they come in contact, and the world is set up so that the leopards recognize their mates from past lives. The female shifter can either accept...more

Favorite Quote: “I think my leopard is a freakin’ hussy!”
Savage Nature is the 5th book in Christine Feehan’s seductive Leopard People series.
A heady passionate seductive story filled with romance, suspense, and my favorite…shapeshifters. Rowr!!! I’ve waited for Drake’s story and I’m pleased to say that I feel this is the best one in the series. Feehan blends a sweet and steamy love story with action packed tension that kept me glued to...more
