    This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance Summary Evangeline Tegre left the swamps for a better life for herself and saves and scrimped her money to open up her own bakery in San Antonio She keeps her shifter side uiet and she refuses to be part of that brutal world she grew up in But then her world turns upside down when a stranger that is full of ice walks into her shop She can feel the hard life that he has lived and how he keeps himself cold and she only wants to get one smile from him For a whole year he walks into her shop for coffee and a treat Alonzo grew up in a horrible world of violence and death and was trained to be just as evil as the rest of his family But when his father killed his mother he fought back to save the life of his brothers Alonzo has had to make the toughest of choices he is cunning and ruthless when he needs to be He knows that Evangeline is his mate a woman so pure and good it hurts to look at her knowing he is not good for her But Evangeline and Alonzo learn to fight for each other and their love Plot and Story Line Leopard's Fury is the most recent release in the Leopard People that Feehan has created I will be honest the previous two books I wasn't too impressed with and lost some faith in Feehan's ability to write this series like the others books However from the first chapter this story felt completely different and like the earlier books in this series I adored seeing these two grow and learn together Both characters were simply wonderful and what I liked most was that their story wasn't rushed We see their chemistry slowly build up for a year but things really pick up when we get some old characters come into the story including Evangeline's cousin Joshua Now for those of you who have read Savage Nature you will really enjoy seeing how Leopard's Fury connects to that story Evangeline has gone through uite a bit in her young life She had to rely on her leopard when she was just a baby She was abandoned in the swamp and had to hide from her family who were abusive and controlling and raped the women in the family Only Joshua managed to escape from becoming like the other men in her family But when she meets Alonzo her leopard is what keeps Evangeline from making to many mistakes with Alonzo Even though Alonzo has lived a brutal life and he is a bit of a alpha male but I love how he treats Evangeline He is patient and understanding with her It was also fun to see most of the other couples in the series take part in this book and see their acceptance of Alonzo and Evangeline This story does prove to be very exciting at times full of suspense and danger and an intensity of emotion to blow your socks off The Cover Not my favorite of covers to be honestIt doesn't seem to fit with the other themes of the covers of the series But I do love the the sunset behind the prarie like fields Overall View Leopard's Fury is a romance that will send thrills to you from head to toea story that is packed with excitement danger intrigue and seeing two people find peace and healing in each other after a life of evil and hardship Click To Buy foogallery id17635

    Leopard Fury is the 9th book in Christine Feehan’s action packed Leopard series 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 way to 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 floweryhe wasn’t a poethe was raw and brutal But she made him want to be than 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 no dictatin’ 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 swamptaking 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 workThis 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 acuiesce because his ultimate desire is to make Evangeline happy Needless to say Evangeline keeps her bakery albeit with extra security and a surpriseemployeeLeopard Fury is simply an exuisite 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 uiet 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 herThe 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 exchange for an honest review and I've endeavored to keep this review as spoiler free as possible No plot twists have been revealed and there are many I have also pre ordered Leopard Fury as part of my collection and I can truly recommend this book to current and new fans of this series

    Why it got 35 stars 1 I liked the backstories for both Fyodor and Evangeline It hints at their difficult past and strength Fyodor was ruthless and determined Evangeline was a survivor But in the present they are simply Fyodor playing the Ice Man and Nice Girl Evangeline 2 The relationship built slowly and both of them accomodated each other3 The mafia meets bakery is a wonderful premise It cracked me up and had so much potential All the cops mob people and undercover agents are haunting the bakery and enjoying baked goodsHalf I like the supporting cast the other shifters the Russian cousins other members of the allianceLost 2 stars because 1 Underwhelming villain2 Joshua and Evangeline are cousins but this storyline is not explored in depth Interactions between the estranged cousins would've been nice

    Love love loveI LOVED this story from the first page to the last A mix of paranormal and crime genres there was nothing about this book I didn’t want to just re read over and over again This author has created a new genre for me – shiftermafia – that I can’t get enough ofEvangeline Tregre was a mystery in plain sight Alonzo Massi didn’t spend just days or weeks watching her instead there were months and months trying to resist her appeal Puzzled but unable to stay away he and his leopard could not stop coming back even though they should “Evangeline was a woman a man kept He wanted her in his bed Have those fucking romantic dates with her” Evangeline’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 growIf Evangeline is a mystery than Alonzo is the euivalent 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 cats ”When there isn’t a choice one accepts fate But she had a choice” This 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 it ’ stars

    DNF 60% Blah blah blah boooooringAlonzoFyodor the man of no expression and Eva the woman in hidingIt's a case of it's me not you or the author I guess I thought she might have changed since I read her last But no it's still tooo serious tooooo dire tooooo repetative etc I mean would it kill the author to have someone crack a smile now and then? I don't mean Alonzo I get that he's all doom and gloom big bad whatever Her characters never do anything 'fun' They don't even watch TV Heaven forbid they should chuckle and crack the doom and gloom mood Anyways for me it makes the characters seem peculiarly flat

    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 anythingThe 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 learn about 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 a realistic feel to meSo 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 itAlright 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 AlonzoWhat did I not like? Not a huge fan of controlling Alpha males and Alonzo is all that and Let 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 meAbsolutely 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 disappointedThank you to NetGalley Berkley Publishing Group for this eARC of Leopard’s FuryThis review is based on an eARC I received from NetGalley It is an honest and voluntary review and the advanced receipt of it in no way affected my review or ratingFind this review and at The Genre Minx Book Reviews

    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 uestionable 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 meAlonzo may be a made man but he is than that I find that perception makes the truth relative Is Alonzo bad and breaking laws? Yes and no What he 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 him than others This sexy shifter story is recommended to paranormal romance readers who like the bad boys with a heart of gold

    What do you get when you put a hero who suddenly finds himself with something 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 readThis 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

    This was a 3 star for me for the most part but the police scene where the hero gets jerked off while talking to the policeIT was STUPID and didn't fit the scene at all So no 3 Stars for you This wasn't as bad as some of the books that CF has done lately but certainly not one of her bestwhich is seems to be CF's new normal
