    Okay, Jake s parents did everything they could to make him into a serial killer Thank God he was too strong for that Jake was an intense guy who had a facade of not caring about anything and being out for himself But truly that wasn t who he was He was a dangerous and ruthless man, but he had the capacity for devotion and love Thankfully he met Emma and she brought that out in him.This was a really intense book I truly enjoyed it and had trouble putting it down I was reading it every chan Okay, Jake s parents did everything they could to make him into a serial killer Thank God he was too strong for that Jake was an intense guy who had a facade of not caring about anything and being out for himself But truly that wasn t who he was He was a dangerous and ruthless man, but he had the capacity for devotion and love Thankfully he met Emma and she brought that out in him.This was a really intense book I truly enjoyed it and had trouble putting it down I was reading it every chance I could Like all of the Feehan books I ve read, this one packs a wallop The love scenes were fiery I was holding my breath out of fear that they would bethan I could handle, but they were not Some sensitive readers might have a few moments of breath holding, but as a reader who does not like erotica in her romances, I was fine.Jake and Emma really are a great match At first glance, it might seem that Emma is too gentle for a hard edged man like Jake, but she really complements him And she has inner steel behind the sweet, homemaking facade Jake is one of my favorite kinds of heroes, ones on the edge that find their salvation in being loved and in loving He was very dominant but he didn t go over the top with it, like some characters can do I think it s because despite his dominance and his rough edges, he knew how to protect and care for those that were in his care and who mattered to him I loved how he tended to collect stray people who had been hurt and damaged by life Aww How could I not love him The violence is inherent in this storyline about a man leopard who was raised by evil, cruel parents, and lives in a world where betrayal is always lurking But it was tasteful and not over the top The climax is electrifying and keeps you on the edge of the seat You feel like you are right there in the midst of the action As usual, Feehan introduces you to secondary characters that you want to readabout, such as Drake, Conner, Joshua, Evan, and Susan I hope that we get to see them find their happy ending.As a lover of shapeshifter books, I am glad I have another really good one to add to my keeper list Unusual and intriguing, and thoroughly enjoyable, I found this book irresistible and worth the time and energy I spent reading it

    Jake Bannaconni is a leopard shapeshifter who lives to acquire enough money and power to take down his evil parents and their friends He was badly abused as a child but survived by dreaming of the day he destroys their lives At the age of 33, he has acquired a lot of money and power but feels like he is still missing something He is going to be a father soon after being tricked by his enemy s daughter She is in a car accident that claims her life but the medics are able to save his son The Jake Bannaconni is a leopard shapeshifter who lives to acquire enough money and power to take down his evil parents and their friends He was badly abused as a child but survived by dreaming of the day he destroys their lives At the age of 33, he has acquired a lot of money and power but feels like he is still missing something He is going to be a father soon after being tricked by his enemy s daughter She is in a car accident that claims her life but the medics are able to save his son The two car accident also claims the life of another man Emma Reynold s husband When Jake sees Emma, he feels a connection to someone for the first time in his life Emma is all alone in this world after losing her husband She is newly pregnant but the doctor wants her on bed rest to save the child after she is injured in the car accident Jake is obsessed with Emma from the first time he sees her and does everything he can to get her in his life He offers her a place to stay so she can rest and teach him how to care for his son She has no where to go so she accepts his offer as long as he allows her to work once she is better.Once they are on his Texas ranch, Jake does everything he can to insinuate himself into Emma s heart She is the most honest person he has ever met, which is amazing to him because he always expects betrayal and deceit He is very careful not to let her see his attraction to her so that she can feel safe but all along he plans to seduce her eventually because he wants her to love him Over the course of two years, Emma has a baby girl, becomes a mother to Jake s son and takes over as the housekeeper of the house She makes a home for Jake and tries to open up his heart Jake does not believe in love and has cut himself off from all emotion after his horrible childhood Emma tries to show him how to love his son and her daughter, who he claims as his own.After two years of grieving her husband and being a mother, Emma begins to wake up sexually toward Jake She has fallen in love with him because he treated her well and protected her for two years He sees himself as a very hard man because he is ruthless in business and with his enemies but she sees him as man who always looks out for those who need help He gives jobs to people who have handicaps or are down on their luck and always tries to help and protect them Jake has always been very attracted to Emma but did not try to seduce her while she was still grieving Once he finds out she is attracted to him as well, all bets are off and the intense sexual tension explodes into passion.This is one very exciting and hot book Jake is a VERY dominant man who always wants to have his own way Emma is the perfect match for him because she will stand up to him on the important stuff but she is also willing to let the small things go She is a very sweet and loving person who is willing to fight against Jake s inner demons because she believes he is a better person inside Jake is very dominant in bed as well, he is rough and aggressive but Emma teaches him to slow down and be gentle sometimes Jake was frustrating at times because he tried to back away every time he started feeling too much for Emma He was so afraid to open up his heart and be vulnerable that he tried to put emotional distance between them whenever she got too close to him Jake was over bearing at times but he was also kind and protective Emma knew going into the relationship how Jake was controlling, over protective, domineering , so she walked into the relationship with her eyes open knowing she would have to teach Jake that it was okay to love She knew that he loved his son and daughter, even if he couldn t admit it to himself She was very strong emotionally and was able to go toe to toe with Jake whenever he tried to take over too much of her life There was also a bit of a surprise twist toward the end that helps put Emma onequal footing with Jake, which I like because I felt it helped balance out the power in the relationship.If you enjoy a dominant hero and a very engaging story, check out this book The writing was very good, the story sucks you in from page one and takes you on a great ride There were relatively few Feehanisms though she does manage to sneak in molten lava and black velvet voice and I did not feel like the love scenes were the same thing over and over which has been a complaint with this author The hero is rough at points especially during the sex scenes but he had a hard life and tries very hard to change into a better person for Emma She teaches him to love her and the children, while he gives her the family and home she always wanted

    Oh My God.This is the first thing that came to mind after I finished this book Well, this and hot damn.I started reading this one with a hefty dose of skepticism The Leopard Series is the least favorite of mine, but I quickly had to rethink my position.I must admit I didn t particularly like the hero, Jake Bannaconni, at the beginning, no matter the rather detailed explanation for his actions and behavior the author offered us in snippets cut from the boy s childhood His parents were mon Oh My God.This is the first thing that came to mind after I finished this book Well, this and hot damn.I started reading this one with a hefty dose of skepticism The Leopard Series is the least favorite of mine, but I quickly had to rethink my position.I must admit I didn t particularly like the hero, Jake Bannaconni, at the beginning, no matter the rather detailed explanation for his actions and behavior the author offered us in snippets cut from the boy s childhood His parents were monsters, children of monsters, and were prepared to turn their son, whom they saw only as a failed breeding experiment, turn into a monster as well If they didn t kill him in the process Yet the little boy thwarted their nefarious plan, first by hiding the truth of his other and then by refusing to be like them, though he failed to see that fact almost until the very end.Still, I didn t like him And it wasn t because of his alpha ness, I love Ms Feehan s males, it wasn t even his domineering personality, it was the way he weaseled into Emma s life, or sucked her into his I would ve preferred a little , I don t know if tact is the right word, but maybe cutting back on the Machiavelli channeling wouldn t have hurt.He quickly grew on me, though, once he, somewhat reluctantly, began to see reason, thanks to his friend and mentor Drake Donovon oh, how I love that man and mostly because of Emma and their two little monsters.Emma Sweet, tender, caring, loving, tenacious, stubborn, strong, resilient, little Emma What could I possibly say about her without falling into clich s and diabetes inducing superlatives.She was just perfect for Jake.She might have appeared weak and vulnerable at the beginning, broken down and empty, but once she got over her loss, she quickly let show her inner core of steel that prevented her from being completely taken over by Jake, and that single minded determination of a woman in love on a very important mission A mission of teaching her man the value and importance of love, loving and being loved Showing him his true self, teaching him to embrace and accept all parts of his being, no matter how monstrous they might seem to him Loving him no matter what he says or does to try to drive her away because she knows deep down he doesn t mean any of it Loving him no matter what.And I must say she succeeded marvelously Jake s progress and his change is obvious from the very first time he meets her to the end.From the very beginning, Jake s been portrayed as detached, cold, feeling no emotions except for rage and that incessant thirst for revenge From the very first chapter and the glimpse at his first memory, his parents humiliated him, degraded him, dehumanized him, until there was nothing left.Yet when Emma crashed, quite literally, into his life, it was immediately obvious just what kind of power she wielded, restoring his humanity, sparkling her joy and love into his bleak existence, until the brief glimpses of his humor, his smiles, his spontaneity until he ruthlessly curbed it were that muchspecial and precious, until they became a normal occurrence, finally signaling the inevitable Jake was becoming human again, he was living for the first time and it was all thanks to Emma and his growing feelings for her.The sex scened also nicely reflected this change, gradually changing from rough kinky, hard core sex with no space for emotion, to a little less rough, but still extremely satisfying lovemaking Although I usually don t like it when one plot line overpowers the others, I didn t mind the romance subplot dominating in this book It was so tightly tied into Jake s growth and maturing, his change, that it would ve been a shame shoving it a little aside to make space for the rest.Still, the suspense and imminent danger were there, skirting the edge, rearing their heads when appropriate to further the main story thread and nudge the hero intoself discovery.And when the climax came it was explosive I loved the depiction of the storm as a portent of impeding battle , snarling, clawing, roaring, deadly, and perversely satisfying.This was once hell of a ride and an extremely satisfying read It s up there with my favorites from this author and safely tucked onto my keeper shell It was gritty, edgy, exciting, and though not exactly action packed, it presents another turn and improvement in Ms Feehan s style Oh, my God Hot damn Yeah, definitely

    I decided to read some Feehan because I hear about her a lot working at the bookstore But MY GOD PEOPLE MY GOD I have read quite a few romance novels in my day and I cannot remember the last time I was quite this horrified The sex scenes were graphic enough that I felt like clutching my pearls, but what transpired during them was less horrifying than that they basically amounted to rape, since her mouth kept saying no but her body kept saying yes So hey, that makes everything okay, rig I decided to read some Feehan because I hear about her a lot working at the bookstore But MY GOD PEOPLE MY GOD I have read quite a few romance novels in my day and I cannot remember the last time I was quite this horrified The sex scenes were graphic enough that I felt like clutching my pearls, but what transpired during them was less horrifying than that they basically amounted to rape, since her mouth kept saying no but her body kept saying yes So hey, that makes everything okay, right The guy is a huge manipulator, getting her to live with him, take care of his kid, eventually sleep with him and marry him, and she s supposed to swoon To fall all over herself in lust love devotion whatever This book is disgusting, and if it s a sampling of what she normally writes, I want no part of it

    This was a good adult erotic paranormal romance, and I really liked Jake I liked both Jake and Emma in this story Jake had had such a rough upbringing and it was clear how much he needed Emma, and Emma was all alone in the world and needed somebody too.The storyline in this was about Jake trying to trap Emma and keep her as his own, and then it seemed like Emma was the on trapping Jake These two were really good together though, and it was obvious how much they cared about each other and their This was a good adult erotic paranormal romance, and I really liked Jake I liked both Jake and Emma in this story Jake had had such a rough upbringing and it was clear how much he needed Emma, and Emma was all alone in the world and needed somebody too.The storyline in this was about Jake trying to trap Emma and keep her as his own, and then it seemed like Emma was the on trapping Jake These two were really good together though, and it was obvious how much they cared about each other and their kids.The ending to this was good, and I really hope this pair have somebabies 8 out of 10

    SummaryJake Bannaconni, didn t have the easiest start in life He grew up with cruelty and punishment He has never known love or affection, all he knows is control and power He is driven, and refuses to let the influence of his ruthless parents, to determine his future When Jake learns that he has a son, and the mother manipulated him, he chases after her Because he refuses to let any harm come to his son who has yet to be born But through certain chain of events, his son was born premature SummaryJake Bannaconni, didn t have the easiest start in life He grew up with cruelty and punishment He has never known love or affection, all he knows is control and power He is driven, and refuses to let the influence of his ruthless parents, to determine his future When Jake learns that he has a son, and the mother manipulated him, he chases after her Because he refuses to let any harm come to his son who has yet to be born But through certain chain of events, his son was born premature in a car accident that killed the mother, and another couple was affected Where he meets Emma Reynolds, who lost her husband of five months Emma is overcome with the loss of her husband, and loses herself in her mind, until Jake Jake keeps her centered and focused on her unborn child Jake convinces her to come home with him and help take care of his son, and with little money, she feels she doesn t have much choice Soon Jake and Emma draw closer together, and their friendship takes another turn into one of passion and desire and a world of dangerous creatures and ruthless enemies who will stop at nothing to destroy Jake and their family The HeroJake Baconni had been manipulated from birth as a genetic experiment, and was only shown cruelty and there was only one person that showed him love, his uncle, who helped him become the man he is today, and where he was able to achieve his wealth and success Jake only knows one way to live, and that is in power He refuses to be helpless or at a loss of control Jake is a shifter, he runs a large ranch, and is emotionally cut off from most of the people he associates with, except for a couple of friends who like him are shifters as well Jake is a very intense hero, full on alpha male we have here One of the most highest that this author has ever written On the surface he is hard and rough, doesn t believe he has a heart, and can be a bit obsessive about certain aspects of his life But never have you seen a man who needs the love of a good womanHe has never known true love or affection, or loyalty Inside you see a man who craves touch and love.The HeroineEmma is a truly magnificent heroine, and she is the balance in the story Emma is such a good human being, she is kind and loving, has compassion and has no idea of the cruelty that exists in Jake s world She only knows how to love and how to stand by someone who you care for She is true to her character She is far from perfect, she tends to be a bit high strung and too stubborn She wants her own way, and doesn t understand the complexity of Jake Her character is compelling, and what I admired about Emma was how she only sees the good in Jake She never judges harshly, except when she wants to exert her own independence But as you read Burning Wild, you see parts of yourself reflected in her character.Plot and Story LineThe story is probably one of the most intense and dramatic romances of Christine Feehan It was one of the first books I read from this author that didn t belong to the Carpathian series I read this book years ago, and ever since I have been wishing I had done a review for it Well I am doing one now I saw this title on the shelves of my library, and I thought I would love a chance to read this again And oh boy did I love reading it again Every once in a while, I think its good to re read a book we love And with Christine Feehan at the helm, I had no issues at all It was just as good as the first time that I had a chance to read it It starts out with seeing Jake growing him between a few years with each segment And I warn you, his childhood isn t pretty and easy its pretty bad and rough My heart just broke seeing what happens to him, and you see how important it is that those scenes are put in the story, so that you can understand the background behind what drives Jake Emma on the other hand never knew pain or humiliation as Jake did She grew up with parents that loved her, and even though she lost them, she has only known love and affection You see how her influence takes a positive effect on Jake They are together for about two years, before their relationship takes asexual turn They are comfortable living together, and understand certain aspects of each other, but when they start to feelintense emotions, that s when the story really starts rolling Oh boy and do they have some heated chemistry Be careful not to get burned here You also learn some things about Emma and who she really is Her character truly blossoms in this story, and it is so heartwarming to see how she becomesconfident and sure of herself, and I will say she learns to handle Jake quite well He needs a woman who will stand up to him, no matter what There is a danger element to the story, and whew..did that put me on edge, despite the fact that I have read this story before But there were scenes and moments I had totally forgotten about The two children are so adorable and I just wanted to hug them so fresh and full of life.CoverHow can you look at this cover, and not want to run for the hills Boy does he have danger marked all over him I love the gray background and the pic of the leopard kinda out of phaze it adds depth and excitement.Overall ViewBurning Wild is a rough and wild romantic tale, of what true love is, and how it can change you for the better A story of fiery passion, intense characters, and has a level of grit and toughness to it.a story that will completely enthrall you
