|The 5th book in the Leopard series starts out
slow, but the action increases as the story continues.
Saria Boudreaux grew up wild,
with an alcoholic father and 5 older brothers. She escapes into the swamp to photograph to
photograph the world around her. She finds several corpses with animal bites and calls the
land owner. This may seem illogical but her brothers are leopard people and she wants this
Drake Donovan is sent to investigate the killings. Drake figures out Saria is his mate
at first sight (and sniff) and sets about making her his. Drake is puzzled when the
leopard-shifting families close ranks on his investigation, in an effort to protect her.
Then Saria catches the eye of the serial killer and the hunt is on to find and stop him.
Saria is a strong character who doesnt need saving. Apart from the whole serial
killer thing. Drake is very Alpha male without being a macho man. Hes a fun
character to read about. The suspense builds throughout and you dont find out who
the killer is until the end. This is a good, exciting story, rather steamy in parts so
suitable for mature teens and up. Im looking forward to the next book in this
series. This is an interesting world.
