Publisher's Summary

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 teeming 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? 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.

Listen to the first book in this series: The Awakening (Unabridged).

    "Liked the book, Hated the narration!"

    It's always so sad when the narrator makes a good book so painful to listen to. I'm with the other two reviewers here, Raudman makes Rio sound so hateful and angry that it makes listening to this book very difficult. She does Rachel well but that's about it, the tribesman sound like children and the basic narration is harsh in tone. Such a disappointment for a book I was so looking forward to. As we all know, it's amazing the difference the narrator makes to a book, take Feehan's Ghostwalker series, Tom Stechschutle takes those books from good to fabulous! I so wish he had narrated this one!

    "Narrator ruined the book"

    It was so difficult to listen to this narrator. Didn't they have a producer to review Renee's work. She is horrible. Good grief, she made the leading man sound mad and angry all the time. I would avoid any audiobooks with the narrator.

    "ROAR!!!"

    This is a good Christine Feehan story, her Leopard series is a favorite. Renee Raudman is an awesome narrator. She doesn't just read the story, but she enacts and lives it. She characterizes the different protagonists with skill.

    I enjoy female narrators with a deeper voice that Renee has. She pulls off dry sarcasm without sounding at all whiny. She also narrates the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews - which are also an awesome favorite!

    "Wild Rain by Christine Feehan"

    Don't bother. This was the first book I've ever read/heard read by Christine Feehan and I don't think I will ever read any of her others after this. This should be categorized as a romance novel. Period. I can go for a little steamy sex just like most other people, but this was ridiculous! Every single second, another sex scene and most of them sounded the same. I kept saying to myself, and sometimes even out loud, "Come on! Get on with the story! Or,"Uh, oh, here we go again....how many times have I heard about his beautiful mouth...." I didn't even finish listening to the book. As for the reader, Renee Raudman is fantastic! I look for books read by her, that's how I found this author. I couldn't ask for a better reader and don't blame her for the content she had read.

    "Great book, so-so narration."

    This is one of my favorite Christine Feehan novels. I'm not too crazy about the narrator, but she does an okay job. I agree with the previous review--Rio always seemed angry; there didn't seem to be a lot of difference in his emotions. I do highly recommend the book, though, if you like the shapeshifter/romance genre.

    "Ok Story - Bad Narrator"

    The narrator did not help the character development. Seemed like Rio was always mad.

    Story
    "Leopard People is A Wonderful Escape to Danger"
    Where does Wild Rain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank it in the top 20. I love this series by Christine Feehan. I bought them in paperback first and then got them in audio. This story is about Rachael who is escaping from her family into the rain forest. She doesn't know she is a leopard. The story unfolds when she meets Rio and then....the lust begins. The characters cross over from early books and continue into the later books of which there are now six. I have them all.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild Rain?

    When Rachael first realizes that Rio is leopard and then she realizes that she is one as well. It is a good story and like the other paranormal love stories. Feehan makes you want more.


    Have you listened to any of Renée Raudman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like all of her narrations. She is a very talented narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I've listened to it at least twice and will listen more. I like the stories and the characters and the sexy men who become leopard. Makes my heart go pitter patter.

    "No connection with this story !!"
    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED Christine Feehan;s Ghostwalker series so i didn't hesitate to sample this book... I tried 4 times to get into this story but I just couldn't stay focused. It was Soooo boring that i even wrote my shopping list while the book was playing. The narrator also bored me, her voice was awful. Sadly this story was not for me...

    "Wild Story"
    Where does Wild Rain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books I've listened to. Wonderful story line. The reader made the heroine sound as strong as she is supposed to be. Quite a different setting from the "Dark" series by Ms. Feehan. Though there are some similarities.


    What other book might you compare Wild Rain to and why?

    Like the "Dark" series in that it encompasses a dying race and its predators.

    If you could sum up Wild Rain in three words, what would they be?

    RIO Jungle Leopard people


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rio because he is a man a woman could trust to watch her back.


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have read the book and listen too. I just love the way Renee Raudman makes the book come alive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Welcome to the Rain Forest


    Any additional comments?

    All I can say is I love the story line and the men in the books.
