Set in the bayou, Leopard’s Blood bring us a fantastical paranormal romance that will touch your heart and have you wishing for more.

I don’t think Feehan has ever written two characters more perfect for each other. Yes, it does start with the insta-lust/love but as the plot develops you can truly see the reason why Sonia and Joshua are meant for each other. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of heat and steam we’ve come to expect from Feehan but in the end, the couple REALLY works.

Too many sex scenes and repeating of conversations. I have all the Leopard and Ghostwalker books so far. The quality of writing is deteriorating. I have already stopped buying the Dark series books. The price of these books is too high for inferior writing.

Christine Feehan has delivered another excellent installment in the Leopard series with “Leopard’s Blood.” The book is action-packed, exciting, and sensual. I waited a long time for Joshua Tregre’s story and this book was worth the wait. Over the years, Joshua had despaired of finding his mate, so when he stumbles across her, Sonia Lopez, he has met a female shifter who is the one to make his life journey complete. The two protagonists are characters the way I like them; strong, intelligent, dec ...more

OMG SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE!! JOSHUA! So glad winter is here, needed the heat *grin*

Personal edit: **Ive been preparing for a qualifying exam recently, so extremely stressed- and usually enjoy light books to motivate myself.
Usually don't read books when they release; let them simmer awhile, but when I saw it was a book in the Leopard's People- which is one of my top all time favorite series, I had to have it asap! So will be a slightly wonky review**

In Leopard's Blood I have to say I had high expectations for this book because its JOSHUA'S book....I mean really, I wanted it to be one of the best books this author has ever written, so of course it wasn't. But I will say it was still a solid read just not quite what I really wanted for his book but still was pretty decent. The story starts off with INSTA LUST. Yep. So if you are new to the series, then let me get some background informat

Family, betrayal and love….

Having a new Leopard book by this author land on my kindle had me doing a happy dance and willing the weekend to come! I had drifted away from this author a few years ago but came back to find, once again, amazing reads. Whether additions to long-standing series - Leopard People, Dark, Sisters, Ghostwalkers – or new romances in the Shadow books, each one was a love story to savour and get lost in…. Joshua and Sonia’s was the latest and oh so good!

I finished the book late Tuesday night 10/24/17 release day but I needed time to think about what I felt about Joshua and Sonia's story. Well guess what I am still not sure. The reason I did decide on 3 stars is the story is repetitive and I don't need that many sex scenes to make a story hot, sensual and sexy. I don't like it when authors repeat the same lines and scenes in a story over and over. I get it the first time. I think this occurs to lengthen the word count. Leopard's Blood would have ...more

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

060319: later addition. okay this is not the romance for me but is definitely so for many gr readers. i think of this novel as parallel those many adventure/war novels marketed as sf, long, too long, too many words for too little story, here rather than numbing universe, spaceflight, weaponry, numbers, exciting tech, there is deliberately provoking emotional universe, sex, love, sex, lust, sex, hate, sex, fear, sex, danger, sex, love, sex, lust... and so on. no more ridiculous than those boy boo ...more

I love reading Shifter books, and the Leopard People series by Christine Feehan is without a doubt my favourite shifter series. I've enjoyed every book in the series, and I've been wanting to read Joshua Tregre's story for SO LONG!!

Leopard's Blood has Joshua and his leopard Shadow finding everything they have ever wanted in the girl living next door, something he thought would never happen for him. However, Sonia isn't sure she agrees with what Joshua wants, she has been greatly betrayed in the

First off I just loved this story so if you don’t want to read them all at least read this story. Sonia is on the run after her leopard saved her even though she didn’t know about her leopard. Sonia moved to a quiet town and has a pretty good job restoring houses so she bought a run down house with plenty of land for her leopard to run. When she is in heat she stumbles across another leopard who she mates with and they spend several days together but she can’t get close because her former husban ...more

I really tried to like this book! but I am really getting annoyed with the gory, and unappealing sex scenes, I get it they are CATS! but for a while now her series like the sisters of the heart, leopard, Ghostwalker, and now the dark series, are delving into the depths of the whips and chains mob! They did not start this way, for example Water Bound, the male character Lev, was more likeable than his brother in last in the series, where I had no interest in the two of them at all, for a book to ...more

I didn't like nor appreciate the fast and furious approach Christine used here. I understand the leopards "Heat" and all that entails, but for Joshua to be all gunho and MINEing all over the show after just meeting? And the wam bang thank you mam nature of the initial meet and greet detracted. The sex scenes while awesome, just distracted from the story. There barely was a story. I get it, its romance, but Meh, still enjoy a good tale. I didn't believe in their love story. It felt one sided and ...more

I was all set to love this book as it was Joshua's story. I had high expectations for this book but it wasn't. I will say it was still a good read just not what I really was hoping for. Once you've read one of her sex scenes, you've pretty much read them all and this book seemed to have more sex than story which I found disappointing. Overall, I enjoyed it, just not as much as I was hoping for.

Leopard’s Blood is a sizzling story packed with sensuality! Sonia Lopez was on the run after a failed attempt on her life and had made her way to a small Louisiana town where she lived alone. She had purchased a piece of property that backed up to a swamp and it was perfect for her Leopard counterpart to run free in. Sonia had been ignorant to the fact that she was a leopard shifter until her life was in danger. That danger had forced her leopard to shift in order to save their lives. Although S ...more

I began this series a while ago, and while it’s always been entertaining, it hasn’t ever really captured me. That is until now.

Leopard’s Blood is (finally!) Joshua’s story of finding his true love, Sonia. At first, I will admit, I eye-rolled at the “instant love” that brought these two together. I mean… really? But…………… I get it. And the more I read, the more I got it. Their chemistry was wonderful, and Ms. Feehan does a tremendous job

First and foremost, I'm a huge fan of Christine Feehan's. I'll admit upfront that I've read every single thing she's released, including all her non-series books, novellas and anthologies. I'm straight up an avid fan. And while the majority of her audience will likely lean towards her "Dark Series", the Leopards have had me for some time (I mean.....Jake Bannaconni, ladies?!?!). The Leopard Series are especially HOT, HOT reads, so if you're not into to that, you should probably pick up a differe ...more

This is the first real disappointment I have found in Ms. Feehan‘s books. Up until now, even though most have very steamy sex scenes, there are also richly told stories with relationships that we are able to watch grow and develop. Not so here.

This story is really nothing but sex. Starting within the first couple of pages and encompassing over 70% of the overall book. There really isn’t much of a story at all beyond that. We are told Joshua and Sonia spend time together talking and getting to kn

Leopards Blood by Christine Feehan
Paperback October 24, 2017

Sonia Lopez was in heat, her leopard was in heat and she could not be anywhere near a man may be. Letting her leopard run through the swamp was a much better option than having the house that she worked so hard to restore being demolished and torn. Little did she know that the swamp land she considered her safe haven would bring her mate and the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe.
The last thing Joshua Tregre expected was to

Leopard's Blood grabs you from the first pages and doesn't stop, the difference in this book is the leopards mate first, the hard part is getting Sonia to trust in Josh enough to have a true mating. She has been betrayed in the past and she is not ready to trust so easily, plus in her heart she knows Joshua is a good man, good leader and she doesn't want to bring trouble to his door, and in her heart she knows that her past will catch up to her and soon. Joshua knows he can protect Sonia from he ...more

Joshua and Sonia have been born and bred in the brutally violent leopard families where death and betrayal is a way of life. When her husband blows up her car, Sonia realizes that there is no one left to trust except herself. She disappears ready to make a life for herself by herself. Joshua’s rise in the underworld of Borneo and the Louisiana swamplands puts him in a position that is highly dangerous to have his attention divided. Their Leopards know that they are mated, now it is a race for th ...more

Книга мне понравилась. Несмотря на обилие постельных сцен книга читалась быстро. Кристин все дальше и дальше закручивает сюжет и почитав про конечную цель наших героев (всех героев серии) то что-то я мягко говоря не верю. Чем дальше все развивается тем меньше мне нравится все происходящие. Наши любимые леопарды ввязались в очень сомнительное и опасное дело. Залезли в мафию, ставят своих людей. В таком деле хочешь не хочешь а чистеньким не остаться. И говорить что они хоть немного сдерживают всю ...more
