Deep in the Louisiana bayou, something creeps . . . and it lies just beneath Saria Boudreaux’s skin. She knows the ins and outs of the swamp, and not even a gator could ever scare her. But after the discovery of a number of dead bodies, it seems Saria is next on the killer’s list. The bodies seem to have been killed by both a man and a big cat—specifically, a leopard. Saria has seen shape-shifting leopards before, and it seems the killer knows her shape-shifting secret.
Fellow shifter Drake Donovan is brought in by the land’s owner to sort out the mess, but the five-family lair has no apparent loyalties, order or leader. Saria has been prey once, but Drake will need her help to navigate the labyrinthine swamp, and so he must team up with her to solve the case. The heat between them is inevitable, but they will need the cooperation of all the shifters—who are all driven crazy by the leopard beneath Saria’s skin—in order to solve the mystery.
The much-anticipated fifth installment in Christine Feehan’s Leopard series, Savage Nature is preternaturally sexy. The tension is as thick as the Louisiana swamp itself, not to mention just as hot. The connection between Drake and Saria goes far deeper than physical attraction, as their leopards have an ancient, irresistible gravitational pull toward one another. Winner of eight PEARL awards and author of more than 30 novels, Feehan knows just how to deliver a dangerously sexy story.
