He’s a man who’s used to getting what he wants, but she’s not the type of woman to take things lying down.…
Born into a world of crime, Mitya Amurov has had a hard life, and his leopard has developed into a feral beast to protect him. It’s constantly trying to claw its way to the surface, until a chance encounter with a stranger instantly calms the predator inside him. While Mitya wants Ania desperately, it’s only a matter of time before his past catches up with him, and he’d rather die than put her in danger. But Ania is dealing with dangers of her own.…
Considering her family’s history, Ania Dover should know better than to get mixed up with a criminal like Mitya, but she just can’t stay away. Something wild in her responds to his presence. A need so strong it scares her. But she’s not sure she can accept what he’s offering. Ania has always been an independent woman, and Mitya expects to be obeyed in all things.
Even with her body calling out for his, Ania won’t let anything stop her from settling a deadly score years in the making—not even the man who wants to claim her as his mate.
“The queen of paranormal romance.…I love everything [Feehan] does.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward
Over-the-top sexuality meets animal instinct in the red-hot 12th romantic fantasy in Feehan's Leopard series (after Leopard's Run). Leopard-shifter Mitya was raised to be a ruthless criminal by his Russian mafia boss father. Now a crime lord based near San Antonio, Tex., Mitya spends his time secretly working to reduce violence from within the criminal underworld. But he and his internal leopard are restless and lonely. One night, Mitya finds Ania, a pre-shift leopard shifter, changing a flat tire on the side of the road and stops to offers his assistance. Ania is on a quest to avenge her murdered family, but she allows her mission to be derailed by lust for Mitya. The twisting plots about Ania's investigation and Mitya's clash with his sadistic father play second fiddle to Ania and Mitya's highly charged erotic encounters as both of their leopards enter into heat. While some questions are left unanswered as fodder for the next entry in the series, fans will be pleased with the scorching love scenes and satisfying conclusion.
