In the rain forests of Africa, Rachel awaits for her death. She thought she had escaped the United States unnoticed, but the several unfortunate incidents that had been plaguing her for days had Rachel thinking otherwise. Now Rachel waits for the perfect opportunity to convince those seeking her, of her 'death'.
Rio had been banished from his people for an intolerable crime committed in his youth. He lives in solitude, but they still utilize him for his skills. Rio suspected that there was another hit out on his life. When you did his kind of work, there were bound to be people you made unhappy. It didn't surprise Rio as much as irritate him when he becomes aware of someone in his home. What astonished him was that the people after him wound send a woman to kill him. Rio and his clouded leopards waste no time in neutralizing the threat. If the woman was harmed in the process, that was of no consequence to him. Only something inside him is appalled at the damage the clouded leopard had done to her leg; his companion had almost torn her leg off. The bruises around her neck and the swelling of her wrist, which he suspected he'd broken, were tangible evidence of his treatment of her. Why if she'd been sent to kill him, was this like acid to his soul; he'd harmed her, caused her pain and it's almost more than he can bear.
As Rachel recovers, Rio comes to the realization that she is not who he thought she was. His guilt is tenfold. As he deals with his guilt and tries to help her heal, he must reluctantly accept the significance she has in his life. With great reluctance, he realizes that Rachel is everything to him, for she is his mate. He knows this woman like he has known no other. He already discerns her likes and dislikes, how she feels and how she thinks, but most astonishing; he knows what it's like to be inside her, to make love to her. Rachel is in a great deal of pain, not only is she delusional, but at first he fears she's hallucinating. Only Rachel's hallucinations seem to mirror his dreams. They know each other; have been together, but how…in a past life?
As Rachel and Rio's feelings for one another deepen, there are still many unresolved issues. For one Rachel's uncle, her brother, or both of them are trying to kill her. Rio is not exactly human but he's not exactly not. Rachel doesn't know if she's losing what's left of her mind or if she actually saw Rio's face turn leopard like; and if he did and they are as connected as he claims, what exactly does that mean for her?
Christine Feehan delivers a passionate jam-packed adventure in Wild Rain. This story doesn't stop. It's thrilling, yet tender. Reading Rio and Rachel coming to love each other again was just awesome! Even mangled and bandaged up, Rachel is a strong heroine. She handles everything that is thrown at her with determination and dignity; she cowers from nothing, not even her own death. Rio is the perfect example of an alpha male. He is unyielding where Rachel safety is concerned, he will not allow anything to happen to her. Combined these two personalities and you have the makings of an explosive couple! Wild Rain is a most excellent read!!! 5 Angels.
