About the Author

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Unlike Wild Rain, this book is not light-hearted fun. This is the dark side of love--edgy, explosive, obsessive. And not for everyone. I, however, loved it.

Burning Wild will disturb some readers for two reasons. One, the hero Jake suffers intense abuse as a child. As a result, he is manipulative, emotionally detached, and cruel--in other words, more than on his way to becoming an abusive person himself. Two, the heroine Emma moves in with Jake, a complete stranger, and entrusts him with her life and the life of her unborn child. Uh huh. Right.

I was warned about Emma's crazy decision before I started the book. Forewarning mitigated my disbelief. But when I thought about it, her choice isn't as unbelievable as it sounds. Emma is pregnant, penniless, and alone. Most significantly, she's emotionally Vulnerable--yes, with a capital V. She's perfect prey for Jake. I can accept that a woman might be manipulated in this situation. AND after all, we're supposed to believe that she and Jake are Leopard people with a past history, so they DO know each other on some level. Suspend your disbelief when it comes to Emma.

And then be realistic when it comes to Jake.

Let's face it. Given what Jake is and what he endures, he cannot be normal. Normalcy is impossible for him. Feehan preserves the integrity of her characterization by making Jake what he is supposed to be--the very flawed product of sick and deviant parents.

Jake was a victim for years. Control is everything to him because he never wants to be victimized again. Yet he's learning to love, and he makes mistakes. Big ones. Why? Because his past affects his relationship with his children, his employees, and Emma.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am not surprised at the strong reaction to this book. Nor am I surprised that it has nearly an equal number of five and one star reviews. This book is not for everyone. Jake, the hero, can easily be misunderstood. Feehan spends a lot of time filling out his character, probably trying to avoid this very reaction. I had a soft spot for this man, but I did understand him, and found him easy to love and admire. Yes, he was very controlling of the heroine, but always with her best interest at heart. It was his desperate vulnerability and equally desperate need for Emma's love that kept me from judging him harshly. For those who thought she was a wimp, I think they just didn't look deeply enough at her. A woman with her capacity to love and empathize has an unbreakable strength that should not be overlooked. She was more than a match for Jake's domineering ways. He is never going to be able to make Emma do something against her own principles. She is the type of woman who truly enjoys caring for a home and those she loves. Being the heart of the home is where she draws her strength. This is her career and where she gives her all. Through her devotion and from her example Jake learns to trust his own emotions and eventually to love.

I found so much of the book very touching. Yes, there are weaknesses in the story. Many thought it hard to believe Emma would so quickly move in with a stranger, trusting not only herself but her unborn child to his care. To me this was explained by their belief that they had known each other in a previous life. Instinctively they had a level of trust in each other that was not explained in their heads, but in their hearts. Feehan should have expanded on this theme, it would have explained much of their behavior.

I've been reading Christine Feehan's Dark series for years and there was only one book which I did not enjoy and it's probably for the same reason as this book.

In this book Christine Feehan seems to have tried being more risqué with sexual scenes which skims dangerously close to the lines of rape than of love.

The main character Jake has a hard time feeling trust and the sexual scenes in the book are not loving but rather acts of dominance and humiliation. These scenes are justified by the author as Jake's need to prove the heroine, Emma's loyalty to him.

These scenes are ultimately what have turned me away from the book. I'm use to Christine Feehan's over the top dominate male characters however I'm not comfortable with justifying acts of emotional abuse as love.

The main character Jake was extremely abused as a child and after managing to get away from his abusive parents Jake doesn't trust anyone and is determined to never allow himself to be in a position to be hurt again.

I understand that the main character has a lot of unresolved issues due to childhood abuse and is unable to trust other but the acts of humiliation he placed Emma in order to achieve this trust was not enjoyable to me.

I know a good romance book when I can completely submerge myself into the story and imagine myself as the heroine. This is my escape from reality but the entire time I read about the degrading acts Jake did to Emma I was hoping the next page would be where Emma left him. This to me is not a romance!
