Product Description

Product Description

This fourth installment in The Cat Star Chronicles series maintains the qualities of excitement, world-building, sizzling romance, and great imagination that made Slave such a resounding success.

Sold into slavery when his planet was destroyed, Lynx was enslaved in a harem. He is a favorite due to his feline gene, which gives him remarkable sexual powers, but after ten years, Lynx is exhausted.

Thrown out without a penny, Lynx is bitter and anti-female. He emigrates to a new planet but can only find a job with a female rancher.

Bonnie's boyfriend has left with all their money and she needs help with the ranch. Lynx is cynical, but honest, and though he has made it clear that he wants no part of a romantic relationship, Bonnie can't resist him. She finds out about his impotence and becomes determined not to let such a beautiful and sensual young man go to waste...

PRAISE FOR CHERYL BROOKS:

"Brooks presents a nice futuristic story with some interesting worlds and Aliens in this Cat Star Chronicles offering. Fascinating world customs, a bit of a mystery and the relationship between the hero and heroine make this a very sensual romance... the hero is quite interesting, and the heroine a strong, independent woman."

5.0 out of 5 stars Outcast 10 Jun 2011
By Bunny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I nearly didn't read beyond page 1 as I thought that someone being taken as a slave on another planet seemed a bit far fetched. So glad I didn't abandon the book as it was awesome. Lynx is worn out being the slave of slaves, 1 guy to 50 women! Bonnie is a sweet honest woman who has attracted the wrong guy who left her pregnant and stole from her. Lynx arrives as a hired help and Bonnie persists in trying to break down the barriers with him even though he doesn't appear to like her/women. The book covers all bases, guys are going to be jealous of Lynx's sexual abilities and women are going to be wishing they were the recipient! Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Cat Star Chronicles" book 4 7 Jun 2009
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
When he was sold into slavery and became the slave of a harem, the young Zetithian Lynx considered his captivity to be a dream come true. But following ten years of sexually servicing fifty women and subject to their petty whims, Lynx found himself becoming less aroused until one day he found himself completely impotent. It wasn't long until he was sold on, yet five years later he was at last a free man intent on finding himself a quiet spot on a new world far away from the creatures he now hates most in the world; women.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, Lynx's new start on Terra Minor is not what he planned. Forced to take a job or face deportation, Lynx finds himself working on a farmstead run by a woman unlike any he has encountered before. Yet Lynx remains wary; even six months pregnant with another man's child he is able to smell the desire Bonnie feels for him, a desire he is physically unable and emotionally unwilling to reciprocate.

Deserted by her ex when he discovered she was pregnant, Bonnie has tried to cope; however she is desperate enough for help to accept the silent Lynx into her life, a cat like man who makes it perfectly clear he hates working for her and loathes her. Of course Bonnie quickly falls in love with Lynx (saving a gal's life can worm a man into her heart) however she is under no illusions that she will ever have a relationship with him. Although Bonnie attempts to subdue her attraction to Lynx, his sensitive nose quickly picks it up and away he dashes each time she inadvertently ogles him.

First thing I've got to say is this series has definitely improved. Unlike previous books, there is no rushed relationship and the lead characters are far more defined with histories the reader empathises with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read 9 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
It was quite entertaining. In fact I then went on and bought all the cat star books and read the whole series. But do read them in order, otherwise you will miss out.

An enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can a broken slave be mended? 18 Jun 2009
By Helen Hancox TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the fourth in Brooks' 'Cat Star Chronicles' series about a group of men from the planet Zetith who have been scattered around the universe after their planet was destroyed and who each find true love.

Although similar in theme to the other books (particularly with regard to the physical attributes of our Zetithian hero), Outcast is somewhat different in that the hero, Lynx, has been badly emotionally damaged by his treatment as a slave. Much of the story involves him being incomprehensible to farmer woman Bonnie who has hired him to help out on her farm as she approaches the birth of her baby. When she discovers that a misogynist has been assigned to work for her she's rather disappointed, but over time as she gets to know Lynx a little better (although with a great deal of reluctance on his part), she begins to understand a little more about what makes him tick. He's also a very helpful chap around the farm.

As with other Cheryl Brooks books, the action eventually moves to the bedroom where the marvels of Zetithian physiology come to the fore. I found this part of the book seemed rather abrupt, the transition from two strangers to two lovers seemed surprisingly sudden following a great deal of misunderstanding and miscommunication. The fact that both seem able to fall in love with each other early on when apparently they are so uncommunicative also seemed a little awkward to this reader; particularly as, having read the other books, this seems to be the pattern. Somehow the Zetithian men come across as rather simple chaps who will fall in love with anyone who is available; I never quite got the sense of fated mates who had found each other, despite the vastness of time and space.
