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, attraction.

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.

Five Stars!

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 suspenseful.

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.

4 Stars!

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. Love it!!!!!!!!”

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 <g>.

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 fail miserably.

Tracy, here's hoping you do more contemporaries...particularly a sequel to this one soon!

Maryam (a reader)...off to savor this story again.

Calli Munro, American, soon-to-be economics professor, and single by choice, arrives in Vistaria during La Fiesta de la Luna, a combination of Mardi Gras and Carnival. Calli's there to keep her sex-kitten cousin, Minnie, out of trouble. When she meets Nicolás 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.

Author's note:

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 you.

-- Tracy.
