REVIEW

"Take a read on the Wild Side!"

You just can't go wrong when you pick up a Christine Feehan book. Her descriptions are vivid, her characters are incredibly sexy, and the romance is too hot for words. Wild rain is no exception.

Rachael is desperate to escape her family in every way shape and form. The only logical way to do this is to slip away and fake her death. Then she can finally build a new life under another identity. So far she has managed to leave the states undetected, or so she thinks, and travel down a wild river in Borneo with some fellow missionaries.

But things go awry when their boat comes under attack by local rebel faction. Seizing the opportunity, Rachael slips into the roaring river to take her chances at survival and possibly a new life. As luck has it her training has paid off and she makes it to shore. Feeling a sense of peace from the wilds of the rainforest Rachael runs away into the jungle.

As exhaustion sets in Rachael stumbles on a hidden hut up in the trees. Eager for some rest and to clean up she takes refuge there. That is until the owner returns. One Rio Santana, a talk dark and very feral man. Scenting that someone is in his place he attacks with his fellow leopards. For Rio has just come from a very harrowing mission to save some kidnapped people from the rebels. For all he knows they lie in wait at his hut.

No sooner does he subdue a very scared Rachael, does he realize there is a strange bond he shares with this woman. But this makes no sense as he is banished from his kind and has come to accept his solitary life.

Rio realizes he cannot let her go until he has healed her wounded leg after the scuffle they had. And Rachael knows she must move on but is helpless until she can walk, let alone run. However, the longer they stay together the more their mutual dark pasts come out. Can they accept each other's dark secrets? Is there room in Rio's life for another? Can the legend be true, could Rachael be one of his kind?

This book was lush and extraordinary. The creatures and jungle were vivid creating a wonderful wild setting. Rachael and Rio are highly compatible characters that draw you into their story. And the forces that work against them only enhance the great romantic tension of Wild Rain.

SUMMARY

I can wash away everything but desire...

What has she done?

With a new identity, a staged death, and a chance to flee the treachery that stalks her, Rachael has escaped from a faceless assassin. Now, thousands of miles from home, under the lush canopy of the rain forest, she's found sanctuary.

Where can she hide?

In this world teaming with unusual creatures walks the most exotic of them all. His name is Rio. A native of the forest imbued with a fierce prowess, he is something to be desired. Possessed of secrets of his own, he is something to be feared.

Whom can she trust?

But as Rachael's past looms as oppressively as the heat of the forest, and as Rio unleashes the secret animal instincts that course through his blood, Rachael fears that her isolated haven has become an inescapable hell...
