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.

Saria Boudreaux grew up on the Louisiana Bayou, which may explain why she feels a special affinity to the place's eeriest secrets. However, even Saria is taken aback when she finds several corpses all containing leopard bites. She fears for her older brothers, who are were-leopards though she knows her siblings would not commit these atrocities.

Saria decides not to call the cops, but instead contacts the land owner Jake Bannaconni. He sends Drake Donovan to investigate the serial killings. At first sight (and sniff) Drake realizes that Saria is his mate as he struggles to control his euphoric inner leopard. He also senses she is on the verge of her first shift. As he makes inquiries into the murders and starts his courtship of his beloved, Drake learns a lesson about life on the Bayou when none of the leopard-shifting families including Saria's kin cooperate.

The latest Wild Leopard romantic bayou fantasy (see Wild Fire and Burning Wild) is an exciting whodunit as a serial killer stalks the Louisiana swamps. The bayou locale adds a strong sense of foreboding that feels even more uneasy with each corpse. That strong fearful strangeness accentuates the feuding shifter clans. However, the exhilarating story line belongs to the lead couple as he knows she is his mate, but must be cautious while she wonders why he has not jumped her bones.

Savage Nature is the fifth novel in Christine Feehan's world of leopard shifters and it is outstanding on every level. There was action, suspense, adventure, excitement, beautifully written lead characters and well-defined supporting characters.

The female protagonist, Saria Boudreau, is such a robust and feisty heroine that the reader can relate to and root for. She is self-reliant, confident, clever, and fearless. The male lead, Drake Donovan, is a commanding alpha; he is tough, ruthless, a strong leader and he's an honorable man who wants a woman capable woman to stand at his side.

Drake and Saria had sizzling chemistry almost immediately, they fit so well as a unit that neither personality overshadowed the other. It was a delight to revisit favorite characters from the previous books and to meet exciting new characters, especially Saria's family. I hope her eldest brother Remy will eventually get his own book.

I've never been fond of marshy or humid environments but the lush descriptions of the Louisiana Bayou were so richly detailed that I felt an affinity to the wildness of the wetlands. Savage Nature hooked me from the first page. Usually, leopard males are portrayed as evil and unscrupulous character so it's nice to see leopard shifters like Drake to have a sense of honor and respect for his mate.

This is the type of excellent writing that Christine Feehan delivers so well, I look forward to the next book in this series.

Savage Nature, by Christine Feehan, is the fifth book in her Leopard series. While the book started out a little too "National Geographic" for, me the story does pick up as the book continues. The novel pleasantly surprised me. :)

This book is completely centered around a Louisiana bayou, so know that going into it. The accents, gators and snakes, Spanish moss, the whole shabang. Christine goes into great detail about every living thing in her story, except maybe our main squeeze Drake. I was hoping to get a little more history on his character. She mentions the rain forest and him quite a bit, but that was about the gist of it. Drake suffered a debilitating injury but I never found out how he got it. Did a vampire try and bite it off or maybe a zombie? No idea. Aside from that he was a fun character to read about, very alpha male without being a overly piggish.

I really loved Saria's character, a wild and beautiful a young woman who takes no crap from anyone but does as she sees fit. Raised by an alcoholic father and five brothers who could care less what she was doing in her youth, Saria retreats into the swamp to photograph the world around her. I enjoyed her character very much, would I love to join her in the swamp to catch some gators? Yum no. But I would definitely watch from the safety of a large boat with a shotgun in my hand. lol Drake and Saria have that nice magic I like to read in characters: the unexplainable pull, jealousy, passion, witty dialog back and forth. Add to that some Cat shifting and things get pretty hot and heavy. Meoooow. ;)

The plot of the novel is pretty solid, Saria accidentally catches the eye of a serial killer and the hunt is on to stop them and protect her.

I'm starting to think that I shouldn't even bother with Christine Feehan anymore. Sure, she created two fascinating species, the Leopard people and the Carpathians, but I'm starting to cringe well into the beginning of her first chapters, as I realize that I will be able to predict everything that is about to happen.
Nothing really changes; her writing style could be taken from a table- insert verb here, noun there, now do it again- it's formulaic to the extreme. The progression of the relationship between male and female is so predictable, so invariable, and so boring after reading just a few of the books in each series that I wonder why I still try. The first book I read of Feehan's was Dark Guardian, and that was wonderful. But now she's far into the series, and all I see are males that are so similar they might as well be cookie cutters. The Leopards are the same way; how can every single male be the most mesmerizing, the sexiest, the most masculine man for the females in the story?
This story could have gone some interesting places, as the South, and Louisiana especially, is rich fodder for authors. But Feehan doesn't utilize the tools she is given. Its like she has never met a person from the South, never seen a swamp, never felt that all pervading mugginess of the Deep South. She doesn't explore the personalities that grow in the South, she doesn't really visit the flavor of the Creole.
I wish I could tell Feehan that I would be willing to wait longer between books if she would inject some of her old passion, her sense of adventure into the books she is currently churning out into the world of mass release paperbacks. Take your time, and write with feeling, I would tell her, because as of this moment, I don't plan on buying anymore Feehan books with the knowledge that all I will be purchasing is disappointment.
