This was an okay paranormal romance, but I didn’t like it as much as the previous books. I felt like we were just dropped into the middle of a story without much explanation, and then got random action scenes, random sex scenes, and lots of info-dumping, and I just didn’t really enjoy it. I didn’t even like the sex scenes, and didn’t really care about the relationship, bit of a fail really.

Wild Fire is the fourth installment of the Leopard People series. I’m not going to go into the basic plot, you can get that information from the cover blurb, but what I will say is that I’m always impressed by how well Christine Feehan writes emotions; angst, regret, betrayal, guilt, sorrow, joy, passion, love. You name it and she makes you feel it which is one of the things I find most appealing about her stories – the ability to connect on a personal level with the characters.

I've enjoyed Feehan's Dark series (for the most part) and thought I'd give the Leopards a whirl. Don't think it's going to be my thing.

I'm not a big fan of the paramilitary/special forces type of contemporary romances. I know there's a huge market for that and not sure why it doesn't draw me in. I enjoy reading about historical warriors. *shrugs*

Also, in a PNR I like the setting to be more immersed in the fantasy world of fantasy creatures. The story/setting was anchored in the real world of ev

This tale revolves around a woman cruelly betrayed by her lover, and a man hopeless in his need for redemption. It is fascinating because he happens to be the conniving betrayer who actually loves her and needs her to forgive him, as well as needing to forgive himself. In addition, her true nature causes another man to believe he has the right to her love. I never thought that I would enjoy reading a description of two men physically fighting to the death over a woman, nor that I would root for ...more

I read this book years ago and I couldn't remember why I disliked it. I decided to give it another try before the release of Leopards Prey. This is the most disgusting, disturbing book I have read.I usually avoid books about rape and abuse to women. The abuse inflicted on the Isabeau the female lead in this story is hideous. She was beaten repeatedly, clawed and raked, and bitten with fangs. Isabeau was horribly abused on her wedding day. What is wrong with you Christine Feehan?? It was Isabeau' ...more

This is the fourth book in the leopard people series.

Within the series, I didn’t feel this book lived up to the strength of the other books. But, as a standalone it was a great read and I would recommend it, to any fans of Christine Feehan or shape shifter fans.

Pretty good book and i'm beginning to think that the Leopard Series may just be better than Feehan's
Carpathian Series . After 21 books, the plot is progressing slowly and interestingly but the love formula's gone stale with the Carpathian couples. Wild Fire was a bit different in that it started with Connor having betrayed his mate by seducing her on a mission and not sharing the matey news with her.

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 4th book in the series and a full novel. This is for adults only due to the steamy content. I should for warn you that there is one scene that is like torture, and if you are sensitive to this type of scene, I just want you to be aware.

This is another action packed book with all the dangers of South America and shifters. If you hadn’t guesse
I have been pleasantly surprised by Christine Feehan's Leopard series. Now that I have read each installment that has been published so far, I don't know what took me so long to jump on board! I love Feehan's other series': the Carpathian, Ghost Walkers, and Sea Haven series', and the novels about the leopard-people are every bit as good.

Wild Fire is an exciting and interesting read. Despite being noticeably darker and with some difficult (and at times, down-right ugly) subject-matter, I fell in
Barbara ★
Not as good as her other books. I thought it dragged and was repetitive. 500 pages was just too many to tell Conner and Isabeau's story. I'm a cat person and the jaguar is my favorite animal and that should have been enough to keep my interest but this story just got on my nerves. And let's not even mention the rape and abuse of the heroine towards the end. Was that really necessary? Ms. Feehan is famous for her alpha males who basically rape their mates but this was different. Too over the top ...more

Almost non-stop action that keeps one up all night!

Still threads that are introduced but never addressed and the sex scenes go on for paaaggggeeeesss (seriously, for those who skim or skip... you’ll be flipping up to 10 at a time.)

BUT, even those are easy to overlook when the overall story is Feehan storytelling at her best!

Recommendation: Shape-shifting Leopards, Mobsters and Love - A weird combination right? Well, it's worth reading on those lazy days or to bring you out of any kind of dull mood.

Wild Fire is the fourth book in the Leopard People by Christine Feehan published in April of 2010. The plot revolves around Connor Vega – a shape-shifting leopard living in the Borneo Forests – and Isabeau Chandler – another Borneo shifter out on vengeance.

He'd never expected to meet his mate on his undercover mission long ago, torn between abandoning the mission or forced to betray her to complete it. Isabeau bitterly remembers his betrayal an ...more

This was my first Christine Feehan ever, and it was such a thrilling ride that I have added to read the rest of this series among some of her other work. Feehan makes living in the Amazon not only action packed but also sexy.

Leopard shifter Conner Vega is a leopard shifter who is part of a special group that just happens to eliminate all threats to the rain forest. On this mission Conner ends up re-meeting his mate, Isabeau Chandler. Although this isn't the first time the two have come face to
This book has a lot of Feehan's characteristic writing in it: alpha male, heroine who is a strong woman but suddenly depends completely on her man, a lot of rough sex, and a good story line.

Even with all of that I found myself getting bored with the book because of the repetitive dialog and pages of pages of sex. I think every sex scene is 4-5 pages long which gets a bit much. The characters tend to repeat themselves and spend a lot of that time repeating themselves and having long discussion in

This is definitely one of the best Feehan books I read. I mean who doesn't dream of a man who can coax out your inner cat. Clenching wombs and spasming do she make climbina a tree sexy as hell?!! I don't know, but damn!! Hot Hot!! Hot!! Christine captured the look, smell and feel of sensuality that left me panting.

I read books for escapism and sheer fantasy. I love Alpha male romance novels. I love the emotional detail and how Conner and Isabeau come to terms with their past. Chri

Wow..This book was intense. I had never read a shape shifter story before, and fear that I may become an addict. This story focused on Connor, a total Alpha male/ leopard.


Connor is a total badass, kill first ask questions later kinda guy. This book was light and easy to read with great character development, a well developed plot, and plenty a action.

This is book 4 out of a series but it makes a great stand alone book seeing that I have not read the other books in the series. I intend to start

I would have rated this one higher, but I found through 2/3 of the book I didn't care for Isabeau, she seemed really whiny to me. Granted she did have a right to be angry with Conner, but he shouldn't have been the only one to get her anger. It also seemed very unreasonable that Iasbeau seemed to fall in line with the whole leopard mate thing pretty fast. The bad guys were pretty horrific in this one, people were disposable to them and just evil to their core. What I did really like about this b ...more
