Wild Rain by Christine Feehan

Product Description: To escape an assassin, Rachel finds sanctuary in the rainforest, where the most exotic of all creatures walks: Rio. But when he unleashes his secret animal instincts, Rachel fears that her isolated haven could become an inescapable hell...

Quote from the book: "I think of it as songs of the forest. I've always loved the way the insects and birds sound against the leaves in the wind. It's all music if you love it, Rachel."

My Thoughts: This is the first of Feehan's books I've read. I know her Carpathian series is popular but didn't know what to expect of this. I was hooked in the first chapter with Rachel and her flight into the jungle. Once she met Rio I was a little disappointed with the dialogue, it seemed unnatural & stilted at first. I kept reading and found myself enjoying it more. Rio and Rachael were both fun, strong characters. I liked them. I also liked the little clouded leopards, they added to the story for me. Feehan wrote about the jungle in such a way that I was immersed in the sights, sounds and feels of the rain forest. I wanted to see the leopards as she wrote about them. It was a fast, fun escape read.
Love the cover!

hmm I think this one may be on my bookshelf it sounds vaguely familiar. I've only read the first 2 in the Carpathian series and enjoyed them.
