Christine Feehan’s LEOPARD'S FURY is a thrilling read. Leopard shifter/bakery owner, Evangeline Tregre, left her lair in hopes of a better life. Crime boss/Amur leopard shifter Alonzo Massi life is full of danger. He doesn’t want to bring Evangeline into his lifestyle, but his leopard has other ideas. This contemporary PNR takes place in San Antonio, Texas. It is suitable for adult audiences.
Christine Feehan does a great job with her character development. They are complex and interesting. Evangeline had a horrible childhood, on her own trying to stay alive. She works hard to establish her bakery and build a better life for herself. She has a big heart and a wonderful personality that wins people over. She is a strong heroine who is very likeable. Alonzo had a horrible childhood as well, being raised in a ruthless lair as a killer. He is a good leader and powerful man. He takes care of what is his. Evangeline and Alonzo both have secrets. The two complement each other well and have great chemistry. I like that they both grow throughout the story.
The plot was well executed and exciting. The characters have a lot of obstacles to overcome. I enjoyed the criminal aspect to the novel. I like Alonzo’s allies. They have similar values and interests. I appreciated how the characters from the previous books from the series were integrated into this story. I also like how the leopards can sense a lie. LEOPARD'S FURY is an exciting and worthwhile read. It had interesting twists and felt believable. This is a great book for people that enjoy paranormal romances with mafia incidents. The story is full of conspiracy, danger, and romance. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
