Kyra Aramis is young, well-qualified, and especially, unattached when she comes across an ad to teach the keyboard to the daughter of an offworld. She eagerly visits the planet in hopes to be accepted by the Queen.

Tychar was sold into slavery, along with his brother. His race is one of felines, and carries incredible powers and beauty. He likes to run at night and is the older of the brothers by fifteen minutes. He is chosen to be personal attendant to Kyra. Trag is the brother to Tychar. He is not all that taken with human females, yet he feels his misfortune since every female seems attracted to Tychar.

After Queen Scalia’s daughter begins studying humans, the Queen decides to search for one on Earth to teach her daughter the keyboard. When Kyra accepts the job, she is given one of the pet cats to use as a slave. The blue-eyed tiger one gives her the eye, and becomes her personal attendant. After Kyra learns a human can mate with them, she gets the impression the Queen invited her there for much more. Kyra is smitten when she meets Tychar which does not sit well with Trag, leaving him in the cold. She wishes to give Tychar hundreds of baby boys just like him, but when Trag comes in the middle, can Kyra choose just one, or will they stay together so not to disrupt the species?

Rogue is quite a fascinating hot read. I thought the plot was cleverly composed. The well-rounded characters explode off the pages. Cheryl Brooks pens a read that transports the reader right along the ride to another planet with Kyra. The marvelous world she builds, along with the vibrant players, each diverse from the other, are yet magnificently sketched to become realistic in this reader’s eyes. Ms. Brooks allows me to feel the drama that accompanies Tychar and Trag, as the ache they share for Kyra slowly builds with intensity. I love the purring sound Tychar and Trag make. If you want sizzle, with a little slow burn along the way, this exciting tale is an absolute delight.
