    Christine Feehan has delivered another excellent installment in the Leopard series with “Leopard’s Blood.” The book is action-packed, exciting, and sensual. I waited a long time for Joshua Tregre’s story and this book was worth the wait. Over the years, Joshua had despaired of finding his mate, so when he stumbles across her, Sonia Lopez, he has met a female shifter who is the one to make his life journey complete. The two protagonists are characters the way I like them; strong, intelligent, decent, and resilient. Joshua is completely focused on Sonia’s well-being, he and his leopard goes all out to court Sonia and her cat Gatita. I loved the sensual connection between the lead characters, Joshua was strong and dependable hero and I really liked the resourceful heroine. Sonia conveyed integrity as something powerful and regal.

    Sonia was very resourceful and could take care of herself but in battle with the sadistically cruel branch of Russian shifters, she would trust Joshua’s superior fighting skills. I loved how respectful and caring Sonia was of her cat and kept control of the feisty Gatita rather than put her less experienced, smaller cat in danger.

    The sex scenes were sensual but fit the story of shifters. I have no objection to sex scenes per se; but they should be secondary to the plot and character development. Fortunately, there was a lot more focus on the external conflict (the fight with the horrid Russian clan) rather than manufactured conflict between the main characters.

    Leopard’s Blood was engaging, exciting, and the story moved at a good pace. The dialogue and character development in this book are excellent. I just wished that a significant person from Sonia’s past hadn’t had so much page time, this was Joshua’s story and I wanted the other person to disappear rather hanging around like an unwanted appendage for much of the story. Nevertheless, this story was a perfect mix of action, humor, and romance. Leopard’s Blood is a fantastic addition to the Leopard series.

    Carpenter heroine, Russian mob, liked her strength and her unusual occupation, haven't seen that before, hero incredibly rough, a lot of sex scenes, feels like more than usual, got a little much in places, but were still hot

    A lot of characters from previous books mentioned, gets a little confusing at times

    I don’t think Feehan has ever written two characters more perfect for each other. Yes, it does start with the insta-lust/love but as the plot develops you can truly see the reason why Sonia and Joshua are meant for each other. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of heat and steam we’ve come to expect from Feehan but in the end, the couple REALLY works.

    Feehan was the author of my very first adult paranormal romance read. Now it is 3000+ books later and she is still a go-to author for me. Especially when I'm looking for a marvelous paranormal romance with a substantial plot and world-building that all providing an amazing visual and vibrant book vacation.

    I have to say I had high expectations for this book because its JOSHUA'S book....I mean really, I wanted it to be one of the best books this author has ever written, so of course it wasn't. But I will say it was still a solid read just not quite what I really wanted for his book but still was pretty decent. The story starts off with INSTA LUST. Yep. So if you are new to the series, then let me get some background information out for you. With Leopard shifters, they pretty much mate for life and if its the right one for lifetimes even. So we have our heroine who grew up in a tough situation. Her father killed when she was young, her mother made to serve the crime boss and forced to have sex with him. Then she married the boss' son and they practically grew up together and ended up in married. But when she heard her husband and father in law talking about needing to have her killed, and learning that she has a leopard inside her when a car bomb almost kills her if it wasn't for her "other" form. Then while in Florida, settling in her new home and the swamps, while in her leopard form, going into heat finds herself being mated with another leopard, one she doesn't know....and it turns out is Joshua Tegre. Joshua isn't afriad of any enemies that Sonia has. Now at

    Now at first their story is insta lust, because of the set up of the story with their leopards. Which isn't my favorite aspect to be honest. I like some great build up. However I really had a exciting time with the way that the plot builds up especially with Sonia's husband and father in law. Now it does add a certain element with Sonia being married (even though she thinks he is trying to kill her) and is in hiding from him. Some might say its a bit of a love triangle situation but not really. More like some conflict of interest. But really, Feehan delivers some great surprises for us in the end here. What I really liked though is that her husband is not what we expect and even though I had a feeling he was not what he seemed, Feehan definitely made that fun turn of events thrilling in every way. Another issue I probably had with the story was our hero. There just wasn't enough character development for him, which I have been wanting ALL series long. Because he has practically been involved since then and I wanted more focus on his character. Even though I really enjoyed the way that this story developed, I did feel that we didn't get enough of our Joshua. Especially with all the family history we see him suffer throughout the series.

    The romance was very interesting, and not really what I expected from this author. It may have started out hot and heavy, but man once these two really get to actually know each other, the romance because more than swoony worthy. These are are just perfect for each other. At first its their leopards that know that they are for each other. But as they start building a relationship, learning each other, we see their emotional connection match their physical bond. I love the way that Joshua supports Sonia in her dreams, encouraging her in her art.

    Even though

    wasn't quite what I was expecting or wanting, the writing was like a magnet, and pulled me instantly into the story and I just didn't want to put it down. The stunning details, the sizzling sensuality and the power packed plot give the reader an EXHILARATING RIDE!!

He was dominant, but full of heart and emotion as well. I grew to like him quickly. Sonia was also someone I could relate to, and how she viewed things going on around her. It was a well written and fast paced romance that either had me swooning or cringing as I turned the pages.

    Too many sex scenes and repeating of conversations. I have all the Leopard and Ghostwalker books so far. The quality of writing is deteriorating. I have already stopped buying the Dark series books. The price of these books is too high for inferior writing.

I don't like it when authors repeat the same lines and scenes in a story over and over. I get it the first time. I think this occurs to lengthen the word count. Leopard's Blood would have made a much better Novella/Short Story. But the storylines we do get are very good fast paced, lots of action and some pretty hot sex scenes. Great believable chemistry between Joshua and Sonia. Too Many Sex Scenes but they were well done. So you see I was very tossed up in the air about this story and will re read it. But for now 3 Stars.

    "Leopard's Blood" is the story of Sonya and Joshua.

    Sonya has been running away with the help of her leopard Getita, after escaping a husband Sasha and FIL Nikita who tried to murder. She finds sanctuary at a small keeping near the swamp, and makes it a home for her and her cat.

    Soon Getita comes into heat which leads her to the male leopard Shadow, and his human Joshua, who instantly lays claim to Sonya like the leopard did.

    Having escaped a Russian mob, Sonya is initially hesitant in trusting Joshua, but soon his caring nature and protectiveness makes her give in her heart to him, only to learn a heartbreaking secret!

    We have to admit- CF writes one of the best and dirtiest book porn. The sex in this book is soooo off the charts hot, its kinky, its smutty and its good. The words "cats in heat" are apt, well because it is literally so in this one!

    The story is well written and if you've read other books in this series, kind of predictable.

    Alpha uber possessive male- check

    Strong, kickass heroine escaping something evil- check

    Strong bodyguards- check

    Evil villains with no scruples- check

    No holds barred lovemaking- check

    Awesome descriptions of forests and swamps- check

    Makes you want to be a cat- check

    What I especially loved was the relationship between Getita and Sonya, because they were so protective and loving to each other, and it was the best one secondary to Getita and Shadow, as well as Sonya and Joshua.

    Also love the super angsty scenes (which are quite common in this series,)-and the "you betrayed me??" trope always gets me!

    The whole scenes and revelation with Sasha..tbh..got a bit creepy and weird

    ..but thank god I didnt give up!

    Loads of drama with crazy FIL in the last 1/4th, but ends in a HEA.

    Safe

    4/5

    Leopard's Blood has Joshua and his leopard Shadow finding everything they have ever wanted in the girl living next door, something he thought would never happen for him. However, Sonia isn't sure she agrees with what Joshua wants, she has been greatly betrayed in the past and has difficulty trusting. She relies greatly on her leopard Gatita to help steer her.

    Their relationship was definitely NOT a slow burner physically - they are well suited sexually, it's more emotionally and being able to trust ( for Sonia ) that takes a lot of time. Another great addition to the series, with enough action to make the reader wonder what's going to happen next.

    Family, betrayal and love….

    Having a new Leopard book by this author land on my kindle had me doing a happy dance and willing the weekend to come! I had drifted away from this author a few years ago but came back to find, once again, amazing reads. Whether additions to long-standing series - Leopard People, Dark, Sisters, Ghostwalkers – or new romances in the Shadow books, each one was a love story to savour and get lost in…. Joshua and Sonia’s was the latest and oh so good!

    Having a new Leopard book by this author land on my kindle had me doing a happy dance and willing the weekend to come! I had drifted away from this author a few years ago but came back to find, once again, amazing reads. Whether additions to long-standing series - Leopard People, Dark, Sisters, Ghostwalkers – or new romances in the Shadow books, each one was a love story to savour and get lost in…. Joshua and Sonia’s was the latest and oh so good!

    Joshua could relate well to the horror that was Sonia’s childhood. He was raised away from the lair swamplands – and the past – that she called her own but he was deadly nevertheless…

    Sigh… sounds pretty he-man and alpha, doesn’t it? Well, he certainly was! Protective, caring and pushy he knew when to move gently and when to pounce. Trust was something Sonia knew little about and a life of isolation meant the few friends she cherished were still kept at a safe distance. Joshua was going to push past any barriers she had and use every skill at his disposal to make her see him and what they could be.

    I sit down to start reading and when I look up again it’s been hours, lost in a world of shifters and love that was equally raw, sexy hot and emotional. A touch of mafia and a whole lot of heat makes this another edgy, “get lost in another world” romance. Loved it and can’t wait for more. LOTS more! ~Diane, 4.5 stars
