"Rebel" [The Cat Star Chronicles, Book 10] by Cheryl Brooks (aka Samantha R. Michaels)
Author's Book Description : He helped to find her kidnapped friends. Will he let her steal his heart?
Kimcasha has lived by her wits since she lost her family when she was ten years old. So when three of her friends vanish, she has no qualms about using herself as kidnapper's bait, until a stranger foils her plot...
After ten years of selling his services in a brothel, Onca has decided to retire. A refugee of planet Zetith, he has no family, no surname, and no woman—until he rescues a young homeless girl from a kidnapper.
Onca helps Kim find her friends, but as their intense attraction deepens, he begins feeling too jaded for someone so innocent. It's up to Kim to convince him otherwise...
My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! I LOVE this series, always have and I don't believe I'll ever stop. However, even though it has the typical erotica and intrigue that you'd find in this series, I found this novel to be more heartwarming and sweet then its predecessors. Onca's story is one that makes you fall in love with this softhearted man just as quickly as Kim does. Their fast-paced romance was enticing to read about while they battle to save Kim's friends and bring down a corrupt system.
Not only were Kim & Onca fun to read about, but also I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know more about Onca's friends and his home computer while being caught up on what was happening to the previous leads in this series!!
I hope to read more from this series and/or possibly read a spin-off series, as these characters have always been entertaining and fun to read about. Yet, if this is to be the last novel in this series, as I've heard rumors of it being, I really liked how it all wrapped up. I do wish there was more yet I'm not sure if I'd ever get enough. Nevertheless, this novel has made me interested in Valkyrie and "the clones" making me wish there was a novel about them too.
I HIGHLY recommend this novel and series to anyone who is a fan of Ms. Brooks and/or enjoys paranormal erotic romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
"Oh, I don't live in here," Rashe said. "I've got a house out back. You'll be safer there."
"But I didn't see a house..."
"You wouldn't." Rashe grinned. "That's why it's so safe."
Having just gotten out of an invisible speeder, Kim shouldn't have been surprised. "It's cloaked."
He nodded. "Lift that flap over there and you'll see what I mean."
Kim found a break in the leather and pushed it aside to reveal a standard-sized door that certainly wouldn't have admitted a Darconian.
"I'll let you in the other way, Ganyn," he said. "Just don't let anyone see you. We need to get that speeder inside too."
Kim had no idea how he planned to do that and didn't bother to ask. "This is getting weirder all the time." ~ within Chapter 21
