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, ...more
WILD CAT is the 8th installment in Christine Feehan’s contemporary paranormal, erotic romance Leopard Series.
Christine Feehan is one of my favorite PNR romance authors and I have read all her series, and whilst I like her Leopard Series, her Carpathian Series is still my favorite.
Having met Elijah Lospostos in previous books I was looking forward to his book.. Sadly, I was rather sad after I finished reading his story.
In fact, I was more than unhappy with Elijah and his character… ...more
“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 story starts off REALLY REALLY badly. The h goes to the H's house to deliver something for her grandfather. The H immediately has sex with her on the floor. This donkey was a virgin and acted like a complete airhead. After he is done with her, he grabs her by the hair and throws her out naked. She goes home and gets beaten by one of her grandfather's workers. This book was so stupid. I expected there to be a lot of groveling by the H but according to other people who could stomach ...more
When I closed this book I had to take some time to process my feeling on it before writing down my thoughts. I enjoy shifter romances and am typically able to reason with the aggressive and violent nature of the heroes due to their being half-animal. Sometimes the attitudes of the heroes can be a bit much and the sex a bit too domineering for my tastes but usually that's balanced out with the heroine's ability to stand up for herself and the hero's ...more
That's a hell no for me even if he does grovel later!!!
"I swear to you, Siena, and you’d better fucking believe me. I will find a way to punish you that you aren’t going to like if you ever put me in that position again. Am I clear enough? Do you get me?”
AND the h dishrag response
"She nodded, put her head on his shoulder and tightened her arms around his neck. “Give me your word, not that nod. This is important, Siena. I have to know when it comes to your safety, you’ll do what I tell you.” “I will,” she murmured. Her ...more
But still, all the "Honeys", melting and OTT Alpha Caveman "living free" and "this is how it is for my woman" statements makes me wonder if CF is channeling, in the midst of a KA marathon during the writing of this book or are they sharing the same word processor?
I don't know, but now I am ...more
So I got this from Soonya's status update, while she was reading the book:
He took roughly her virginity, then kicked her out of the house by her hair(tuggin at it painfully may I add) and called her a whore, and then told her that she was the worst he ever had...then he mentions how wild, rough and generous lover he was with ow....and now when he knows he was wrong he tells her to just deal with it?? That's author's idea of groveling?? What the ever loving f...no apology, nothing.

When she arrives, it's Elijah Lospostos, a man she has always had a crush on. Upon her arrival into his home, heat ...more
This particular book seemed like one long, repetitive sex scene with some jumbled up, confusing plot mixed in here and there. Neither of the main characters was likable, and there were times when each was intolerable.
Also, shout out to the most random and incorrect use of the word subsapce I've ever ...more
With her grandfather assassinated and her leopard rising within, Elijah is the only one she can trust and the reader can’t help but get caught up in heat as Sienna and Elijah share not only an animal instinct for survival but a desire so raw and wild that it may be the only thing that saves them. ...more
I have been a fanatical fan of Christine Feehan for 16 years. I have read everything that she has ever written. I have re read The Dark Series and The GhostWalker series so many times I have lost count. But Wild Cat and the last 2 books CF has written were so disappointing I felt like crying. I feel like I have lost an old friend. She was my go to author when I wanted to read or re read a great PR. Now I am at a lost for words. I have waited for Elijah's ...more
This is a familiar trope where the alpha guy says terrible ...more
I had the pleasure of meeting Leydy (Once Upon a Twilight) at a South Florida Bloggers event at Books & Books. It was book love at first site :) We were discussing one of our favorite genres, Young Adult Fiction, and I mentioned that one of my issues with this genre was the lack of sex. Lo and behold, Leydy whips out a blue paperback book out of her tote ...more
Intense love, scorching sex and tense suspense rocked this one out of the park for me. This author is on my “must read before the ink is dry” list but this one… This one just struck every chord and then went back and struck them again.
Siena Arnotto is beautiful, smart and unbelievably tongue-tied when it comes to her grandfather’s neighbor, Elijah Lospostos. The feelings of heat and yearning she’s had recently amp up even higher when she finds herself on his ...more

This was another intense installment in ChristineFeehan'sLeopard series. Their double lives and wild natures adds fuel to the fast paced storyline. And the hot sexual romance is pure Feehan style even though a few times the encounter didn’t really fit the part of the story. I...more
Even though this is the eighth book in this series, I thought this entry was easy to understand and didn’t feel a ton of missing backstory. However, I was not terribly excited by this Christine Feehan story.
I know some of my friends absolutely love anything Christine writes, but I have had an uneven set of experiences with her work. I like some and almost like others. Her sex scenes are well done and ...more
