The world of shifters can be brutal and exotic For the couple in this story, Evangeline Tregre and Alonzo Massi, their childhood lairs were full of violence, brutality, and terror Evangeline was abandoned as a baby by her parents, left to fend on her own in the swamps with only her leopard as her companion and protector She has managed to survive to adulthood, with minimal scraps of food from her cowed, beat down father Now, she has fought to survive into adulthood on her own and has made her way from the Bayou swamps to the city of San Antonio, Texas Finally free from a nightmare childhood, Evangeline has used her meager earnings to buy a small house and open her own bakery She has left the swamps and lair far behind to become her own woman when Alonzo, the Iceman, starts visiting her bakery Alonzi Massi is a man of ice, with few words, and clearly carries an aura of a cold bloodied killer However, there is wayto this complex, scary loner than it first appears His brutal childhood has made him what he is I ve had pain inflicted on me until I rose up and put a stop to it On top of an unfortunate beginnings, his leopard is one of the most rare and vicious type of cat, an Amur leopard As a man if few words, Alonzo is concise when he begins to open up to Evangeline He wasn t flowery he wasn t a poet he was raw and brutal But she made him want to bethan he was I fell in love with this couple from the very first page Evangeline is the type of heroine I could relate too and would want to be friends with She is shy without being timid when it comes to keeping what she has earned, she is firm without being acerbic This is a favorite exchange when they are in the first stages of their mating dance So, nodictatin nonsense There s going to be dictating Then prepare for rebellion I ve seen your bossy I get it The thing is, you better get me as well I don t rollover because you tell me to do somethin If you want me it has to be me you want That means you re not gettin everything your way Evangeline makes it clear, once Alonzo confesses who he is, bares his soul, and makes his verbal claim on her, that while she feels a mutually strong attraction to him, she will not allow him to consume her This is another favorite scene from the book I am that girl from the swamp without a family, without a parent, or anyone at all I made my own rulesI can t be anyone else, not even for you She makes it clear that she will not compromise on giving up her business that she work so hard to build I love my bakery She made it a statement That bakery represents me risin out of the swamp taking control of my life Alonzo still tries to assert that he wants to be her center, as she is his, but he comes to respect her decisionHe dragged a chair close and reached for her hand I m going to drive you crazy, but I ll listen to what s important to you and we ll find a way to make it work This is from a cold eyed, tortured man who had never been held, never been loved, yet he was willing to listen and adjust even when his natural instinct was to was grab on tight to the woman he loved and wrap her in a cocoon of safety Alonzo eventually learns to acquiesce because his ultimate desire is to make Evangeline happy Needless to say, Evangeline keeps her bakery, albeit with extra security and a surprise employee.Leopard Fury is simply an exquisite reading experience The story seamlessly intertwines action, adventure, and intrigue with romance True, there are sensual elements to the story, these are two consenting adults completely in love and devoted to each other Yet there is intricate character and relationship development Alonzo has been visiting Evangeline s bakery as a regular customer for over a year without making any move on her He has been coming to her bakery several times a week for coffee and a pastry because her calm, quiet, and steady presence calms him and calms his nearly uncontrollable leopard He does not stalk her or try to entice her into bed he is content for a long time just to be in her presence It is only when there is a tangible threat to her that he moves to claim her.The bond with the other leopard women takes time to form but eventually, Evangeline finds a sisterly comradery with Emma, Catalina, and Siena Also, a new life makes an entrance into this growing community and several favorite characters make a heartwarming appearances It was wonderful to read how this complex community of shifters fully embrace Evangeline and Alonzo as part of their world I loved this book I received this ARC copy in

Joshua and Evangeline are cousins but this storyline is not explored in depth Interactions between the estranged cousins would ve been nice Love, love, love I LOVED this story from the first page to

woman a man kept He wanted her in his bed Have those fucking romantic dates with herEvangeline s childhood has shaped the woman she has become She has no ties to anyone but her leopard and the bakery which is her life, her family Despite that, her personality as well as her baked goods keep customers coming back Especially a special someone Alonzo immediately captures her eye, and that of her leopard, and those feelings just grow and grow If Evangeline is a mystery than Alonzo is the equivalent of a closed book Told from alternating points of views, their pasts are revealed slowly, over moments of protectiveness and courage Baby steps on both sides are taken even as each have many reasons to stay away They wanted to protect each other through distance but neither was able to resist the call of love for themselves or their catsWhen there isn t a choice one accepts fate But she had a choiceThis story had it all from sweet love to heated passion, selfless acts of kindness to violent acts in the name of revenge and family Tender moments and blood soaked scenes worked because of the emotions that surrounded them all Star crossed or should I say family crossed lovers could not be denied and their paths were filled with humour, danger and heat that could not be denied Diane, 5 want to give itstars This story I enjoyed a lot because I liked the dynamics between Evangeline and Alonzo This story can be read as a standalone For those reading this series in order, Alonzo shows up in the previous book He was a questionable good guy there and in this one, he s supposed to be an anti hero I really liked him There is something about how Alonzo was raised and was able to overcome the psychotic males in his family that just impresses me.Alonzo may be a made man, but he isthan

does is illegal because it is against the law However, his purpose is to take out the criminals and this is fighting fire with fire This is an interesting concept Does it really work I think it does for a while and then hero and saviour gets turned around and then they become the tyrant As for Evangeline, I enjoyed her story and her cat Her story parallels Alonzo s and she is pretty amazing Her desire to stay away from all cat shifters is understandable What she does with her little business is impressive The chemistry between Evangeline and Alonzo is what really made this story sweet and adorable Alonza may be an alpha male, but he isn t pig headed with his woman I think that s why I like himthan others This sexy shifter story is recommended to paranormal romance readers who like the bad boys with a heart of gold When I started this book I was instantly in love with the female protagonist Evangeline She is written as a strong, independent, and intelligent character who has relied only upon herself and her leopard since childhood She is just starting her business but is satisfied that she is making it on her own The male protagonist is introduced right away and his profession is easily deduced So there is no grand reveal about what he does as a living More clarification that anything.The main plot in When I started this book I was instantly in love with the female protagonist Evangeline She is written as a strong, independent, and intelligent character who has relied only upon herself and her leopard since childhood She is just starting her business but is satisfied that she is making it on her own The male protagonist is introduced right away and his profession is easily deduced So there is no grand reveal about what he does as a living More clarification that anything.The main plot in this story is that both Evangeline and Alonzo have experienced their own type of abuses and hardships They have suffered and through that suffering developed methods of coping that make relationships with others difficult Although Evangeline starts crushing on Alonzo from the start Alonzo remains cold as ice There is great character development during the time it takes for both of them to be willing to explore what it means to be together During this time, we learnabout their backgrounds, all the juicy secrets they are keeping and the lustful desires that they harbor for one another I really like it when relationships are developed over time It gives the story arealistic feel to me.So there a romantic oooh la la between Evangeline and Alonzo but there is also relationship building between their leopards as well I loved the connection between Evangeline and Bebe, her leopard You can really feel the love between them and Bebe is very confident and a bit cheeky Alonzo s leopard is a savage killer but he knows what he wants and it is Bebe There is a great deal of sweetness to counter the savagery in this story and I just loved it.Alright, you know that this is a novel by Christine Feehan so do I really need to explain that there are Sexy Times in this story Well just in case you are not familiar with her work, yes, there are Sexy Times Although this is a story that includes sexual relations it is mostly focused on what is happening between Evangeline and Alonzo.What did I not like Not a huge fan of controlling Alpha males and Alonzo is all that andLet me be clear, I am okay with Alpha males actually but not males who like to be the alpha male in sexual situations In the bedroom his character is written to be very controlling to the point of telling her to fold her clothes properly and place them properly where he wants them Granted he is a giving lover and relaxes a bit but for me it just grates on my nerves I would have definitely have tossed the shirt and told him to just deal, sheesh He gets better as the story goes on but it was some definite points off for me.Absolutely wonderful read that I enjoyed from beginning to end I like where this series has come from and where it is going I am most assuredly looking forward to the next installment in this series If you enjoy paranormal romance that revolves around shape shifters, then you need to check out this book and this series You will not be disappointed Thank you to NetGalley Berkley Publishing Group for this eARC of Leopard s Fury This

he thought he d never have or deserve, and a heroine, who doesn t want anything to do with it, together in a world created by a master story teller like Christine Feehan You get a great read This story is a roller coaster showing the dangers not only of their crime family lifestyle, but the effects dysfunctional families can have When Evangeline and Alonzo feel the attraction and desires drawing them together they fight it, find excuses to resist But slowly, patiently, you see them knocking down the barriers that keep them from love They come to grips with their pasts and how it influenced how they react to the world but doesn t define who they have to be Ms Feehan takes them on a slow journey of discovery as the bond between them builds, they learn to accept themselves and each other, that love is something that needs constant attention and compromise It s not something that destroys and weakens but heals and strengthens You find yourself in many frustrating want to shake them moments, good alpha stories always do many hold your breath, what s going to happen next, action packed moments many teary eyed revelations of their pasts and what could be their future moments and many warm hearted smiles when they finally get it moments Not only do these two characters grow throughout their journey, but so do many secondary characters in a way that does not detract from the main characters story but enhances it I love the side story of how family isn t always blood but people you bond with, who want you in their lives, accept you for who you are and are there for you in good times and bad Cannot wait to see them, and many old friends from previous books, in future books in this series A ruthless criminal unleashes his most feral desires in the new Leopard
