From back of book:
Called on a dangerous assignment, leopard shifter Conner Vega returns to the Panama rain forest of his homeland, looking every bit the civilized male. But as a member of the most lethal of the shifter tribes, he doesn’t have a civilized bone in his body. He carries the scent of a wild animal in its prime, he bears the soul-crushing sins of past kills--and he’s branded by the scars of shame inflicted by the woman he betrayed. Isabeau Chandler’s a Borneo shifter who’s never forgiven Conner--or forgotten him. The mating urge is still with her, and when she crosses Connor’s path, passions run like wild fire. But as Connor’s mission draws Isabeau closer, another betrayal lies waiting in the shadows--and it’s the most perilous and intimate one of all.
I was torn with this book, like with her Carpathian series, Feehan has a repetitive style. Having read so many of her Carpathian novels it can become tiring. Liquid heat this, dark desire that. The love scenes just don't do that much for me anymore. This book in particular did not get my temperature warm. The story lagged. I found myself just waiting for it to end. Speaking of the end. I enjoyed the last disc, especially the last few tracks. In fact, without the love scene and the passion felt descriptions between the two main characters the book was actually interesting. The drug trafficking, the kidnappings, the force servitude could have made for a great story. Unfortunately, Feehan novels are romances focused on the relationship between the two main characters anything else that happens in the book is just a backdrop. I would have preferred the backdrop in this novel. TBR list #4
