LEGEND OF THE LEOPARD by MELANI BLAZER
Geneticist Salvatore DeMartiano managed the unbelievable—he
accidentally injected himself with infected leopard blood,
which causes his biochemistry to alter and allows him to
change into a leopard. And threatens to turn him into a
white leopard...permanently. It doesn't help that he's
miles into the Sudanese savannah where he cannot easily get
the human blood and medicines he needs to solve the mystery
of the gene-altering bacteria.
Until Julia Haverstock's plane crash-lands not far from his
home. She's the only survivor. He's the only one who can
speak English. She needs a way home. He needs her blood.
Rather than explaining his bizarre predicament, he sets
about seducing her, hoping to get close enough to convince
her to help.
Julia bought the reasons she couldn't leave immediately and
even became Sal's lover without much reluctance. But it
frightens her when she finds notes on his computer about
genetic alterations and leopard blood. What kind of mad
scientist is he?
When Sal is wounded, Julia must face the truth— he is the
legendary white leopard. With Sal trapped in animal form,
Julia faces her toughest decision yet—take the resources
she's discovered and flee, or stay to help this man-beast
she has grown to love.
