has always known she was different from the other Psy. A race of
“superior” humans that are conditioned from birth to feel nothing, the
Psy have become the leaders and renowned for their icy disdain and
lack of emotions. But Sascha is forced to guard her every word and
thought to prevent others on the PsyNet from discovering she is
flawed. If it was discovered that she could feel emotions, it would
result in her being sent to “rehabilitation” and the total psychic
erasure of everything she is.
Sascha has been
assigned the task of working with the Changeling, Lucas Hunter, on a
joint business project between the Psy and the Changelings. The
Changelings are the opposite of the Psy and revel in their sensual
nature and their enjoyment of life, emotions and physical desires.
But Lucas isn’t
just any Changeling, he’s the Alpha ruler of the DarkRiver Leopard
pack and he’s determined to find out the truth behind the brutal
murders of several Changeling women by a Psy. He sees this business
partnership as a way to look into the secretive Psy society through
their representative, Sascha.
But Sascha and
Lucas both find the other is not what they expected and they are
fascinated by each other. Will the secrets they discover mean their
destruction and perhaps the destruction of their very societies?
I had already
read some of Nalini’s contemporary romances by the time I saw the
announcement of this paranormal romance and I’ll admit I was a little
uncertain. You just never know what to expect when an author does a
genre shift, but the premise and blurb was so interesting that I gave
it a try and I am extremely glad that I did.
Sensation is a
fascinating look at an alternative reality where society has taken
their separation to extremes. I started to read this book late one
evening and couldn’t put it down until I had devoured it¾then
I read it all again the next day. With hot sex and an all-consuming
love, the characters totally enthralled me and especially Sascha’s
struggles to be what she was expected to be, then her desire to
protect Lucas and the DarkRiver Leopards in the face of everything
she’s been raised to believe and her certainty that it will mean her
I completely and
joyfully recommend Slave to Sensation. With an
incredibly rich world and societies, hot sex and enthralling emotions,
I will undoubtedly read this book again and again. Now I can’t wait
for the next book in this series!
