Wild Fire by C. Feehan

31 December 2010 Casey 1

If I had to describe Christine Feehan’s Wild Fire with one word, I would use ‘explosive.’  The chemistry between Isabeau and Conner is so hot it practically melts the words right off the paper. And the fight scenes erupt like a bomb in your face with little forewarning. Leopard shifter […]
