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 eight years old. So when three of her friends vanish, she has no fear 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…
Rebel is a thrilling sci-fi romance that keeps readers on a roller coaster ride of action and passion. The author has created a fascinating world of intriguing aliens with unique sexual elements and characteristics that continue to surprise the reader and entice them into wanting to know more. Twists and turns keep the readers guessing in this book and Kim and Onca are two characters that captivated me from the very beginning and I can’t wait to read the next Cat Star Chronicle adventure.

About Cheryl Brooks:
(Off author’s site)
A native of Louisville, KY, I graduated from the Kentucky Baptist Hospital School of Nursing in 1976 and then went on to earn a BSN from Indiana University in 1986. Horse crazy from the time I knew what a horse was, my family moved to rural Indiana in 1989. Since then, I've managed to accumulate a number of animal friends, but am currently holding at two horses, four cats, and one crazy little dog named Peaches.
I have been married to the same wonderful man (aka Budley) for more than thirty years, and we have two grown sons, Mike & Sam. I've been working full-time as a critical care nurse for more than thirty years, and while this has been an exciting and rewarding career, I have recently resigned from my position to allow more time for my writing.
As a writer, I find that any fantasy you have can come true if you simply write it down. I've been keeping my friends entertained with my books for a number of years, and self-published a book in 2006, If You Could Read My Mind, writing as Samantha R. Michaels. Slave was the first of my books to be published with Sourcebooks Casablanca, and has since been followed by Warrior, Rogue, Outcast, Fugitive, Hero, Virgin, Stud, and Wildcat. Look for book 10, Rebel, in July 2014. I have one self-published stand-alone novel, Sex, Love, and a Purple Bikini, and one short story, Midnight in Reno. This past summer, I self-published the Unlikely Lovers series, which consists of Unbridled, Uninhibited, Undeniable, and Unrivaled. My current work in progress is a contemporary erotic cowboy series to be published by Sourcebooks in 2015-2016.
With my Sextet sisters, I've contributed to five erotic anthologies published by Siren/Bookstrand: Sharing, Dirty Dancing, Occupational Hazards, Entanglements, and Mistletoe & Menage. I also have three solo novellas with Siren. The Sextet Presents... Small, Medium, & Large; A Toy Story is a contemporary MMF menage. The Sextet Presents... The Lady Takes a Pair: In Days of Olde is a Regency MMF menage, and The Sextet Presents... A Tale of Two Knights: Legends is a MFM retelling of the Arthurian legend.
I'm a member of RWA and the Indiana RWA chapter. My other interests include cooking, gardening, singing and guitar playing. I'm still hurt that The Eagles got back together without me!
