It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Slave to Sensation

seen on another blog, most likely at J. Kaye's Book Blog, and requested from the local library.

Slave to Sensation
Nalini Singh
Psy-Changelings Series, Book 1

Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: September 5, 2006
format: mass market
pages: 352


I own a iTouch with the Kindle app. This is only important for you to know because I may be purchasing, and starting, book 2 in this series soon after I finish this!

from the publisher:

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of “rehabilitation”—the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was…

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a Changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several Changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion—and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities—or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation…


I finished this in one night, using several tissues. I felt invested in Sascha. Haven't we all, at one time or another, felt the need to belong? Or wanted to cry because we felt different? What if you couldn't cry? Or laugh? Or enjoy chocolate? What if you felt flawed? Less than perfect? This just takes that to a different level. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
