A Great Read That Will Have You Glued To The Pages!!!
This is the second book that I've read by Ms. Cooper-Posey and it
was great! The characters, the setting, and even the storyline are
unique and fun. The chemistry between Calli and Nicolas is instant
and it's hot, but Ms. Cooper-Posey manages to draw it out and as a
result when our lovers finally get together it's beyond steaming.
This story is very romantic and although this is a "romantica"
story, this is not a book with page after page of gratuitous sex
scenes. Instead it's a story about strength and integrity, and yes,
This was really an emotional story that was well told. The
characterization was right on, and Ms. Cooper-Posey does an
excellent job of keeping our interest alive while at the same time
keeps our lovers apart. That is until...well, never mind I'll let
you read the book! This was a great book that I highly recommend to
the fan of the romance genre. Word of warning -- things are a little
spicy than the average romantic read, but it's tastefully done. Ms.
Cooper-Posey is now an author I'll pick up simply because her name
is on the cover.

This is a great suspense story. I don't want to tell too much of the
story because it would ruin it for other readers. If you love those
movies where you don't know who's side the hero is really on until
the end, then you'll love the intrigue of Red Leopard. Cooper-Posey
did excellent with the personalities of the characters. A follow up
story on Calli and Nic would be great!
Reviewer: Angel Brewer For TRS Blue
RED LEOPARD is a fabulous read, because it combines a political
thriller with an erotic, sensual read that builds and builds, and --
well, you get the picture. The anticipation is electrifying as you
wait to see if Nick and Callie can actually reach the point where
they are willing to risk it all to be together. With a good, strong
plot, the reader is thrown into a fictitious but surprisingly
realistic Latin American country that is dangerous and politically
unsafe; in short, a perfect setting for these two explosive
personalities, and when they finally come together, it’s dynamite.
Deserving of its NC-17 rating, the passionate scenes in this novel
are well developed, subtle when needed, and as hot as necessary.
There are also other scenes, though, like the one where Callie tries
to rescue Minnie’s boyfriend that are riveting and tautly
RED LEOPARD is not a read-it and leave-it novel. Its pace is fast,
but it stays with you for a long time, long enough that you enjoy
reading it just as much the second time around. I highly recommend
RED LEOPARD to those of you who enjoy some thrills and chills along
with some fiery scenes guaranteed to please.

For Women on Writing
Red Leopard is an interesting book that keeps the reader glued from
beginning to end. The romance between Nick and Calli is
spell-binding. The mixture of romance and sexual ecstasy made this
book worth reading over and over. This reviewer found herself drawn
to the mysterious sexy red leopard wanting to find out more about
him. The whole romantic country and words that are used take you
deep inside the book and you find yourself there. It takes you from
an ongoing war to a romantic get away back to the war. It just goes
to prove two people from different countries can fall in love and be
together even when the countries don't want them to be.”
By Ruby, for Love Romances
“Pros: Fresh new idea. Cons: none. The Bottom Line: Calli Munro, an
American arrives in Vistaria during La Fiesta le La Luna, a
combination of Mardi Gras and Carnival. Red Leopard is a strong
sensual story that deals with irresistible attractions and the
forces that stand in the way of love. This has both romance and
action though out the story. Reading about the political climate of
Vistaria, and the unfolding of romance between Nicolas and Calli
will keep you on the edge of your chair. For Romantica this is
something new and fresh.

“By the way, I'm just sinking my teeth into Tracy Cooper-Posey's RED
LEOPARD and WOW. Is this a great book. Enjoying the steam and the
characterization. Now that's my favorite combination...danger,
adventure, excitement, high-power characterization and steam. Yep.
Denise A. Agnew, Ellora’s Cave author
“Tracy Cooper-Posey weaves this tale in a delightfully exotic
setting. The people on the isle of Vistaria are sensual and the
descriptions of the landscape are beautiful. The characters are well
developed and have great sensual chemistry together. The love scenes
are well written and very hot! The plot moves along at a nice pace
and is filled with sexuality. I really enjoyed the suspense of
wanting them together intimately. I really enjoyed this and I would
recommend Red Leopard to other people who love romanticas.”
Maria Desrosiers, eBook Reviews Weekly
“I just finished the best book - Red Leopard - those of you who love
good writing and hot heros, a tight plot and an incredible love
story set against the backgound of a rebellion, get Red Leopard!
Tracy sure is a fantastic writer! (I first read her Diana by the
Moon, I think it is at Hardshell, and I love her style."
Samantha Winston, Ellora’s Cave Author
In RED LEOPARD, Ms. Cooper-Posey has written a spellbinding,
adventurous novel. The sexual tension between Nick and Calli is
compelling. I could not see how it would be possible for Calli and
Nick to have a future together and worried that there might not be a
happy ending. I hope that there will be a sequel to RED LEOPARD as
there are a few unanswered questions at the end. I am anxiously
waiting to see what comes next from Ms. Cooper-Posey’s talented pen!
Denise Powers for Sensual Romance.
I loved this story. I was enthralled with Tracy's writing style,
it's almost lyrical. There were several passages I had reread just
because of the sheer beauty of the language. It was such a romantic
love story...and very sensual too, and the action wasn't bad either
We have a country on the verge of revolution, and two lovers for
whom common sense dictates should stay far apart from each...and
they try their hardest to be oh so sensible...but lucky for us they
Tracy, here's hoping you do more contemporaries...particularly a
sequel to this one soon!
Maryam (a reader)...off to savor this story again.

choice, arrives in Vistaria during La Fiesta de la Luna, a

Escobedo, the powerful bastard half-brother of Vistaria's president,
she realizes she is the one in trouble.
Their attraction is instant, powerful and mutual, but to give in to
it will open the floodgates of bloody revolution in Vistaria. Not
even the mysterious man known only as The Red Leopard can stop it.

As I write this, Red Leopard is in final editing stage and is
tentatively due for release in April 2003, although there are
editorial rumblings at Ellora's Cave that hint it might be released
earlier than that. Because it is the latest book I have written,
it's currently my favorite, although that will likely change once I
have begun the next story (Solstice Surrender, for the Winter
Warriors anthology, due out for Christmas 2003 at Ellora's Cave).
Red Leopard has the distinction of being the first book I've written
where one of the secondary characters became as endearing to me as
the central characters, and I'm itching to write the sequel, which
is scheduled for the not too distant future. I won't mention which
character it is here, because I don't want to spoil the book for
