Description

What has she done?
With a new identity, a staged death, and a chance to flee the treachery that stalks her, Rachael has escaped from a faceless assassin. Now, thousands of miles from home, under the lush canopy of the rain forest, she's found sanctuary.

Where can she hide?
In this world teeming with unusual creatures walks the most exotic of them all. His name is Rio. A native of the forest imbued with a fierce prowess, he is something to be desired. Possessed of secrets of his own, he is something to be feared.

Whom can she trust?
But as Rachael's past looms as oppressively as the heat of the forest, and as Rio unleashes the secret animal instincts that course through his blood, Rachael fears that her isolated haven has become an inescapable hell.…

    Pretty good book and the audio was decent. I would recommend this to people who enjoy steamy romance and shifter books.

    I find many ebooks to fall into three categories. The novella... the novel... and the novel that should have been a novella (well, make it four categories & add in the novella that should have been expanded to a novel). Unfortunately, for me, Wild Rain was a novel that would have been better as a novella. When I find myself skimming pages & then going back to READ them, and realizing that by skimming I actually had missed ZIP of the plot, well, then I really wish I was reading a novella. The author has a fascination (rightly so) with the rainforest and its preservation; however, that prose tends to overwhelm the actual plot and I just kept wishing the author would get ON with it! The plot in its stripped down form was wonderful; however, I just couldn't get past the soliloquy to the rain forest. I enjoyed "The Awakening" in its novella length. Not sure if I'm going to continue on with this series or not since all the rest are novel length - and quite frankly, if the plotline continues to be that someone comes into the rain forest and realizes they are part of the decimated/endangered civilization I don't want a part of it.

    Rachael knows that she is hunted, the reason is clear to her and her only recourse is to disappear, loose herself completely in the wilderness. In the luxuriant wildness of the jungles of Borneo, she hopes to find a modicum of safety, and at least the illusion of the peace that she lost with her parent's murder. She was counting on the fact that no one knows that she is here, but she is wrong. Danger has stalked her, and found her even here, deep in this jungle paradise. Now she has to decide what she needs to do and who she can trust. She has not expected the handsome stranger, nor the attraction she feels towards him. She is frightened and alone, and no matter how brave a front she puts up, she knows that she is in trouble, and the dark and handsome Rio Santana can be the answer to a prayer, or sudden death. The whole thing boils down to a matter of trust, can she trust him, is the big question that must be answered. The only problem is that she is soon afraid that he has stolen her heart.

    This lush and wild jungle that he calls home is his sanctuary and his prison. He is at once ruler, and prisoner. Rio doesn't know if the beautiful stranger may be the cause of his death or his ultimate salvation. He is hunted, wanted, and an outcast from his people, and all because he wanted justice. He is loyal, and although most have turned their backs on him, he continues to protect them. His wariness and suspicions about Racheal are well founded, but the woman's presence stirs something unexpected in him...the urge to mate, and claim her for his own. There is something not quite right about this whole thing, and although he senses her difference, he is surprised by her naiveté. She is schooled in the ways of the jungle, but is seemingly unaware of the very differences that has haunted his people for ages. Her wariness shows she too, is hunted, and Rio swears that somehow he will protect her, win her trust, and make her his own.

    I am a huge fan of the Dark series. This new series hopefully will get to the quality of that one. I'll give it the benefit of a doubt, 3 stars.

    This is the second of the Leopard series, and it has been a unique experience while reading a different supernatural being and nature. It was like nothing of the storyline that shows that these groups of novels were anything like the Dark series. Nevertheless, it was a different line of story that brings out altogether a flow that has its problems and fighting — an excellent read for me and learning new taking of another race in Christine Feehan's works.
    Love that her uncle finally got his own faith in the hands of her mate and brother.

    This is the second story in the Leopard series. This is about Rio Santana and Rachel Lospostos. Rio is a wonderful character. I hurt for him because he is so lonely and doesn't even realize how lonely until Rachel shows up. Rio has lived by his self for years only interacting with the team of shifters that rescue hostages taken by bandits along the river near his rain forest home. He is a man that any of us reading this story would love in our home loving us as he does Rachel. He is caring, compassionate, honorable, and selfless in many ways. He also has a quick temper and a streak of jealousy that mark is kind. There is just something about a big cat shifter that makes me want to go out and find one and I hate mosquitoes.Rachel has had a miserable and frightening childhood. She is intelligent and cunning. I admired the way she planned out disappearing into the rain forest. She was being hunted and needed to disapper and she made it happen. Rachel is feisty and loves the rain forest. I also liked that she was excepting of the who she really was and what that would entail. While loving, compassionate and a quick learner Rachel also has a temper and is a well trained fighter.Ms. Feehan has captured the essence of the rain forest. I have to wonderful if she actually went to one and toured. All rain forests are dangerous not just for the predators and poisonous pants and animals but the human bandits and hostile natives. While Ms. Feehan captures all of that she also shows the reader the beauty that can be found. All of the characters in this books are people I would love to meet and sit down and spend hours listening to what the had to say. This is one of the author's gifts. Her villains are so bad that you are cheering the hero and heroine on while they outsmart said evil, vile personage and put a stop to his reign of terror. However the other characters are all intriguing and interesting. You want to know more about these people. You want for them to have happy and productive lives. It is a amazing gift and one that the great authors all have. Ms. Feehan is also not afraid to write about exotic locations that fire the imagination. She paints a picture with every scene showing the reader what life most be like for these characters. This is a wonderful story and a great addition to the series. I highly recommend it to all the paranormal fans out there.

    Fun, light read. The Leopard people are actually done very well; the integration of the human and animal appears seamless. Not sure I can really get into the constant danger, shooting, past life, whatever, but an ok adventure story.
