Animal attraction takes over in this exhilarating Leopard novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.The moment Meiling sees Gedeon she knows he's a leopard shifter--just as she knows she can't trust him. Meiling doesn't take chances, life has taught her better than that. So why does she find herself rescuing this deadly, gorgeous man, when she knows she'd be better off leaving him to die?
Gedeon is used to women throwing themselves at him, not throwing his injured body over their beautiful, deceptively strong shoulders and carrying him to safety. He might be embarrassed, if he wasn't so aroused by the very thought of this feisty lotus blossom.
As they strike up a working relationship that suits them both, Gedeon starts to rely on Meiling for just about everything. But when her hidden nature rises to the surface, the connection that links them shifts into an all-consuming desire. And neither will escape unmarked. . . .
Leopard’s Scar continues the Leopard series, but it can be read as a standalone. For as much as I adore Feehan, I haven’t read this series. She releases 1 a year in this series, much like her other series. I love shifter books, so I have no idea why I didn’t jump on this sooner!
Meiling is smart and determined. Gedeon is lethal and surly. They need each other and have to work together. This requires a level of trust that isn’t easy for either of them. Both struggle with tragic backstories and trauma. But, these two are drawn together like magnets. Its a bit of of a HOT slow burn because these two are wary of everyone else (including each other). What I think I enjoyed most about this book was the action and suspense. The story is nonstop from the first page. There is danger everywhere, and Meiling and Gedeon travel the world.
Fans of paranormal romance will delight in Leopard’s Scar for its well built world of shifters, Feehan is phenomenal at world building and this book continues that!
