Set on the world of Utopia, Tisana is a witch with the ability to telepathically communicate with animals and start fires with a glance; gifts she is wary of revealing to the local townsfolk. At a young age Tisana is scorned by her lover Rafe as she is destined to birth only one daughter conceived by "the one". On a world in which sons far outweigh the value of daughters Rafe is not only proven to not be Tisana's destined mate when she fails to become pregnant, his desire for sons burns stronger than his love for a young witch.
Many years later Rafe arrives unannounced at Tisana's home with a new slave, a feline looking male she names Leo. Believing it will take perhaps a month to fully heal Leo, Tisana is left amazed by his recuperative abilities and he soon gains enough strength to get hot and heavy with her. Yet before their month together has fully passed; a time in which Tisana wonders how to liberate Leo, Rafe again arrives unannounced. Insisting on their help to track and rescue his kidnapped sons, this hunt for two abducted boys is far more treacherous and deadly than Tisana anticipates.
Like its predecessor "Slave"; this book has plenty of action, an absorbing plot line, an abundance of erotic moments and a great ending. I was somewhat negative in my review of book 1 "Slave" believing the leading lady to implicitly trust her hero far too quickly, but I may have judged far too harshly by not taking into account the allure of the Zetithians; the very fine feline heroes of "The Cat Star Chronicles". There is a 10 page excerpt of book 3 of this series at the end of "Warrior" and I now eagerly await the release of "Rogue" due for publication in March 09.
