Hello, and welcome back! The sun is shining outside my window today, though it's not incredibly warm. That hasn't stopped my guys from going out to play, though. I'm multi-tasking indoors, though, with two different chilis cooking and bread baking while I get some office things taken care of.
This time out, I have the latest from Cheryl Brooks, Rogue (Sourcebooks), the third (and, for those of you interested, not the last) in her 'Cat Star Chronicles' series. This time out, Kyra Aramis has left Earth and gone to the planet Darconia to teach piano to the daughter of the queen. Upon her arrival, Kyra discovers that Queen Scalia has a large 'collection' of slaves from other planets, including the sexy brothers Tychar and Trag, both Zetithians. Kyra isn't sure exactly what to make of them, but she can't really argue with the queen when Scalia gives her Tychar as her 'personal assistant'. And hey, what red-blooded woman can resist these sexy cats? Not Kyra, not once she's had a taste of just what he can do to her, for her. Even better for her, a little later, Tychar invites Trag to join them, making the forbidden even more enticing and incredibly sexy. But Kyra's new position is in very grave danger when rebels take deadly aim at the ruler, and she, along with a number of natives and slaves have to save the queen's children and defeat the usurpers. Then there's the hot sex all along the way. This one, like the two before it, is told in first person, which I'm not regularly fond of. And this one, like the second book in the series, did not grab me in quite the way the first one did. The story is okay, though the heat this pair (sometimes trio) generates is off the charts. Kyra makes some serious adjustments, too, from wannabe brave piano teacher traveling to a faraway planet, to a sassy, in-charge woman. Fans of the series will want to grab this one if they haven't already. I'm borrowing three and a half of Cupid's five arrows for it.
Until next time, happy reading!
