it was amazing
bookshelves: 2009-reads

Yes, Christine Feehan has done it to me again. Once I picked up "Burning Wild", I couldn't put it down until the book was finished; and at 443 reading pages, that was several hours that I spent living in her world with her characters. I loved it. YES, the hero is about as Alpha as they come and I can already hear some of the vitriol she'll no doubt receive regarding one particular sex scene...but hey! It's her world! She can do whatever she wants...

Jake learned early in his life to hide his leopard nature and count only his victories. The product of two insanely cruel parents trying to 'breed' a shifter, he spent his childhood bruised, broken, bereft of love, and waiting until he was strong enough to get away. Now, he's rich, he's handsome, and fate has dangled the one woman in the world for him in front of his face...but she's hurting and broken and he'll have to use every ounce of his hunting patience to lure her to his side and under his control.

Emma never imagined she'd actually be working for a man like Jake. She'd heard, and read in the gossip pages, all the stories about what a hard, cold man he is. But the more time she spends with him, the more she comes to realize that he's just a man who has no knowledge of love. At least no knowledge that he realizes...

This story was smoking hot. The sensual pull between these two had me sweating and the scene where they actually consummate that passion liked to burn the paint off my walls! This was no gentle lovemaking session, but a savage meeting of two passionate souls who've waited too long to come together; both having the prod of their animal natures to contend with as well. Just a heads up, OK?

"Burning Wild" is pure Feehan: sexy Alpha male finds the woman for him and locks on like a laser, woman faces danger, male goes nuts but rescues female and smoking hot sex ensues; repeat until finale. But you know what? I still love to read her books. Each of the males stands out in my mind (even now) and their heroines are memorable too. As many of her books as I've read, that HAS to mean something. On to the keeper shelf it goes :)

Shawna Great review, as always JJ!

Julie (jjmachshev) You guys make me blush...

Shannon (Giraffe Days) repeat until finale. But you know what? I still love to read her books.

I hear you Julie! I don't mind the repetitiveness of her plots and characters because, like you, it works - I've always had a problem with her writing though, but it's never been enough to stop me, no matter how much I grumble!

I haven't read any of her other series outside the Carpathian books, but this definitely makes me want to read this one! Thanks!

Julie (jjmachshev) If you love Carpathians, you'll love these guys too.

Shannon (Giraffe Days) Picked it up yesterday :D

Julie (jjmachshev) Let me know what YOU think.

Shannon (Giraffe Days) I finished! Review coming. Maybe you could help me and Julie though - we're trying to figure out what the first two books are and it's a bit confusing.

Julie (jjmachshev) Fever and Wild Rain are the other two...

Shannon (Giraffe Days) It seems that Wild Rain is in Fever, along with another short story - but you can also get it as a standalone?

Julie (jjmachshev) This is straight from her website...
•BOOK #1: THE AWAKENING (story in Fantasy & Fever)
**This was an anthology titled "Fantasy" released in 2002
•BOOK #2: WILD RAIN (story also in Fever)
**Originally released in 2004, then in 2006 her publisher repackaged both "The Awakening" and "Wild Rain" into one book called "Fever".

So the good news is that you really only need two books to get all three stories--Fever and Burning Wild.
