Title: Thief of His Heart
Seth Burgess is a werecat and a thief, who is always up for a challenge. He ignores the rich heritage of his kind and embraces the fast, progressive world of humans. When approached with the task of stealing a priceless treasure from his own kind, he thinks nothing of the repercussions. Stealing into a cavern with notions of wealth and excitement on his mind, the last thing Seth expects to encounter is Crnswar, the very lord of the werecats. Captured and nearly killed, Seth’s punishment is to leave the face paced world behind and to serve his rural brethren for no longer than a month. Unfortunately, Seth has to serve Crnswar as well.
Seth Burgess, part human, part were, part thief. As a human Seth enjoys his life a lot, he loves the finer things in life, the riches and material objects as well as a variety of men and women. As a werecat he has no idea where his past derives from because he was raised by his mother, who was human, and though his dad has always been a part of his life, he never seemed to embrace that part of himself. Well, he gets that option when he manages to get himself into trouble and his father brings him to his world of werecats where every, and all types of cats live and coexist. He attends a meeting with his father and this is where he meets the big leader Crnswar, who is the lord over all werecats. And he ends up meeting the cat up close and personal when he tries to steal from him. Then Seth is more or less forced to serve Crnswar to avoid death.
What follows are endless dreams that Seth has about Crnswar and his attraction to the older wiser and very powerful leader. To no one else will Seth submit, but to the leader, he yearns for it. His dreams are full of hot action scenes between the two of them, and they are done well. However, at some point I was frustrated with the dreams, and I just wanted it to happen.
The overall storyline is interesting, especially if you’re into werecats. I found it a little off the wall to imagine a half human, half cat in partial change though. A cats head with human body or cats body with human head. My imagination scares me sometimes. However it goes, it’s an interesting story, the details were drawn out to me a bit, and the secondary characters were well done. I wanted to get to know Crnswar a bit better though. And, no, I still don’t know how to pronounce his name.
