The Cat Star Chronicles, #1

Do you like cats, far off worlds and sensual beings? If so, you are in for a real treat with the first book in The Cat Star Chronicles. The first book is Slave and it's by Cheryl L. Brooks. Cheryl has a wonderful imagination and will sweep you into a brand new reality where Jacinth, an earth woman meets Cat. Cat is from a race of beings that have basically been eradicated. He is a very sensual being and also headstrong.

Jacinth has been searching for her kidnapped sister for a long time and believes that her sister is now on a planet where all females are enslaved to men. While Jacinth is a tough woman and can do anything on her own she knows she must find a dependable man to pretend she is his slave. She knows no one like that as she has been traveling all alone in her plane and is now in a far off galaxy. After taking a look at the slaves for sale, not that she ever wanted to purchase one, she finds Cat to be to her liking. She purchases him and frees him. Together they go in search of Jacinth's sister. Will they find that they have a connection? Can an earth woman find happiness in the arms of a man who has finely found freedom? Will the goons who destroyed Cat's world fling a wrench into the mix?

Cheryl L. Brooks brought the scents and smells of a far off galaxy to life. Not just the good ones, but also the bad ones. As the book begins you are thrown into a suffocating new world that just reeks and I felt Jacinth's pain at even having to get a whiff of the place. Both Jacinth and Cat were wonderful characters that I rooted for the whole way through. I look forward to seeing where the series goes next. If you are seeking something different, where your imagination can soar then check out Slave. The only thing I would have changed was the ending a bit, but I don't want to mention how that all transpired. Overall, A wonderful book that I got yanked into. Can't wait for the next one!
