This is my guilty pleasures series. This is my favorite of the series so far. The heroine is the only known Zetithian female. Because she was rescued and raised on Earth she knows nothing about her own race. She doesn't understand her hardwiring as an alien. When she meets Trag, a Zetithian male she doesn't understand her odd response to him. Neither one of these two fall in love at first site, which I liked. He is in love with his brother's wife and although he wants his own mate, Micayla seems ...more

I was really interested in finding out about Hero just for Micayla as she's the last female of her kind left and wondered what she would be like.

Raised on earth, Micayla is the last living Zetithian female. Typical of her species, she's aloof and uninterested in men, that is until she meets Trag, the Zetithian pilot for an intergalactic arms dealer and the sexiest, most irksome man she's ever met. Trag has sworn he'll never marry, unless he can find a Zetithian woman. Considering the odds, it's

I really enjoyed "Hero" which is Book #6 in The Cat Star Chronicles. Cheryl Brooks has created an incredibly unique world of creatures. Although most of them are clearly not human, they still have very human problems. Like all of the books in The Cat Star Chronicles, this is an erotic romance and leaves nothing to the imagination. The hero, Trag, tugged at my heartstrings from the second I cracked open the book. He's in love with his brother's wife and has assigned himself to a life l ...more

The Cat Star Chronicles series is based around the galaxy of Zetith and the good looking cat like men that come from this galaxy. A long time ago the galaxy of Zetith was destroyed and the feline men were sold off as slaves.

Hero is Tragonathon “Trag” Vladatonsk’s story. Trag was in Rogue, the third book. Trag is lonely and wants to settle down. Though, Trag won’t settle for anyone less then a fellow female Zetithian. A female Zetithian is rare. Trag is willing to wait.

The Cat Star Chronicles is one of those series that I just can’t get enough. I was anxiously awaiting Trag’s story and it didn’t disappoint. Most of the book was fantastic - my favorite part being Trag’s reaction when Micayla hisses at him. The only thing that I didn’t like was Trag’s feelings for his sister-in-law. For more than half the book Trag believes himself in love with his brother’s wife and it bothered me. I don’t think it is an admirable trait and couldn’t help but dislike Trag a litt ...more

Book 6 in the series. Can be read without reading previous books but you will get quick snidbits to catch you up.

Trag Trag Trag. Hmmm what can I say about him and his aversion to blue. Spreading his love or rather his Zetithian special joy juice throughout the galaxy's and is very popular in betrothals. Telling everyone he is holding out for a Zetithian female to mate to avoid Kyra and Tychar (his brother and his mate) and his confusing lust for her.

Micayla doesn't even know what species she is

Book #6 in the Cat Star Chronicles series

We first met Trag in Rogue when he was a slave on Draconia with his brother Tycharian. Ty had shared Kyra with him one time & Trag has never been able to get over Kyra. He's sworn that he won't mate unless it's with a Zetithian woman, believing that none of the women survived the destruction of their home planet.

Micayla is the last know surviving Zethithian woman, but her parents were killed when she was very young, so she has no idea about her origin

Sixth book in Cheryl Brooks' Cheryl Brooks Cat Star Chronicles, Hero is the story of Trag. We met Trag in book number four, as the brother of Tychar. Trag is unique in that he wears his emotions on his sleeve. He's not afraid to put his feelings out there. He's also unique in that while all the other Zetithian survivors are falling for Terran women, Trag is holding out for a women of his own race, even if one no longer exists due to the destruction of his home world.

I got this book for free (hence why I started the series on number 6!!) and I will say that, although I do wish I had started the series from the end, it didn't impact on my enjoyment of the story.

The book is set in a Star Trek like universe where space travel is possible and all the planets visit each other. We begin on a docking station in the middle of deep space. Here we meet Mickayla, a feline-looking woman, who grew up on Earth, but has no clue what race she is. We also meet Trag, one of t

I've read the other books in this series and I must admit that this book, while not my absolute favorite, closed out the main storyline with a bang and gave the poor Zetithian survivors a bucket of hope for what the future will bring.

Probably my favorite aspect of this book was how neither Trag nor Micayla had any idea how to deal with the instincts they felt for others of their species. The first time Micayle meets Trag she hisses at him, completely to her chagrin. Having never met others of he

Another great installment of the Cat Star Chronicles

I did enjoy this book but not as much as I was looking forward to it. To finally see the side of a Zetithian female I thought was going to be really intersting and from the little we got it was good but I felt as if I would have like to know more.

The story line was a little slow to follow and the love scenes not as hot as the others in the series, but still all out a good novel.

The reoccurance of past characters especially Jack was awesome I lo

This can definitely be read as a stand-alone novel; I haven't read any of the earlier books, and had no problems understanding the world(s) and characters.

I loved the fact that neither Micayla nor Trag knew of Zetithian mating practices. They were both clueless and freaked out about the driving need to follow their instincts. Fascinating. And, like others have said, I like that theirs isn't a "Love at first sight" story.

One critique: the part where everyone gets together to plan the Grekkor conf

I gave this book 4 stars because Micayla wasn't as easy to relate to. I think it should have gone a little more into her struggle to relate to others growing up instead of focusing on everyone thinking she's a cold bitch. Just my opinion. Other than that of course I love Trag and he just made the book worth reading. I didn't like Kyra much in this book at all. Mabye it was just because it was written from a different perspective? It was like she felt she had some claim on Trag and wanted a say i ...more

Excellent instalment of the Cat Star Chronicles. Well written. If you enjoy reading futuristic sci-fi romance with a twist then you will love this series. I can't wait to read the next one.

I loved this series. This is book #6 for those who are just now reading it and it was hilarious. Micayla and Trag are the main characters of this book and we see how a Zetithian female reacts to a male of her species not that Micayla has any idea that is what she is at first. Trag, is Tychar's brother from book 4 so we know is trying to get over his brother's mate still and he has sworn to only get with another Zetithian female (not knowing there were any left). They met under unusual circumstan ...more
I am so glad Trag got his reward. Straight from home, raised in quiet, to live out loud, Mick is just who he needed. And if you will just read this book for your self, you will know exactly what I mean. #snardlover

Hero is the sixth book in the Cat Star Chronicles by Cheryl Brooks. Each book can be read as a stand alone book but the series does feature recurring characters.

In Hero, pilot Trag meets the last female Zetithian Micayla. Raised as a human Micayla, doesn't understand her disinterest in men until she meets Trag. Trag is still hung-up on his brother's wife so there is no insta-love in this novel, which I absolutely loved. It was nice to see their romance develop throughout the book. I do love the
The TBR Pile *Book review site*

The characters were great, they had back story and a real flair for dialogue but as far as their chemistry together– zilch. Every romantic scene felt forced, these two characters didn’t sound like they were meant to be together. This made the sex scenes less emotional and rather dull. I was not inspired by Hero like Ms. Brooks pervious books, which is a shock. I will be reading her other books though. She’s written some great stuff and I hope

Look, this is no great work of literature; it's slightly campy sci-fi erotica, plain and simple, but it's an incredibly FUN novel. The writing is solid (if occasionally a little heavy on vulgarity), the characters are interesting and likable, the story is nothing if not original. I believe this is the last book in the series; I read it first, and don't feel any real urge to read the rest of them, because I can pretty much see how the other stories went from this novel, but THIS one is well worth ...more

I thought this book was pretty good. I started it back in June (it is now September) when I was at the beach. It was good up until about 100 pages until the end. I think I just kept reading it to get to the good part. But when the good part came, it also went...bye bye. lol

this is definitely more of a sci-fi book, and I didn't like it THAT much. I had to force myself to finish it, but if you do like star trek and that sort of thing, this book is for you. And great ending too.

A bit different because we learn more about the mating dance between a male and a female Zetithian. The characters are back to two dimensional. Still, I found it to be an enjoyable and easy read. Good book for relaxation. The sex is a bit rougher, but nothing edgy. The big mystery is finally revealed. If anyone didn't figure out the mystery after book 1, I'd say they were not paying attention to the book. Easy plot to follow.

I'd been waiting for Trag's book for a long time. And it was truly one of the better offerings in the series, if not my all-time favorite, which is still Outcast. I like when Brooks writes vulnerable heroes, and Trag totally was. I loved seeing a Zetithian female as well.

You don't want to read these books because they provide high-quality literature, but they are great fun, and I've been enjoying revisiting that world.
Barbara ★
I like it isn't love at first sight for Trag and Micayla. I like adversity and conflict with my hero and heroine and this book delivered that. I did find that the multiple sex scenes were repetitive and I honestly got tired of reading about the effects of snard. Other than that it's a great book that advances the series and leaves it in a good place for the next installment.

Even though I'm an "old fart", I've got to admit this is the first time I've read a Science Fiction Romance book. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Brooks approach to her subject matter and even found the explicit parts interesting to read. It certainly makes one wonder what alien sex life might be like... I would certainly recommend this good book.

I liked this steamy paranormal romance but it was light on action with too much description of strange beings and characters thoughts. Hero and heroine didn't like each other and he was in love with his brothers woman for half the story. Running from bad guys, Micayla ends up as stow away on spaceship Trag pilots.

These books are just plain fun to read plus the basic story is changed just enough to make sure the reader doesn't get bored. There is a revelation at the end of this book that allows the series to continue but in a slightly different way. As long as the books stay fun, I will continue to read the series.

Trag and Micayla are a good couple once they finally get together. I enjoyed that she hissed at him when she first met him. The action is fast moving and the book ties up many of the loose ends.
I am glad that Trag found true love. I felt very sorry for him in the book with Tychar.

It doesn't really matter what the plot is about. This is an erotic story with some pretty hard core sex scenes. The first one happens on the second page of the book! So if this is what you are after it's a good book, not badly written and there is a basic plot.
