Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh
Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh is set on an alternate Earth where the human race is divided into three distinct types. There are the normal humans like you and I, the Psys who have mental powers, and the Changelings who are part human and part animal. Many years ago because of the high incidence of insanity and serial killing among the Psys they embraced Silence the removal of all emotion. The Psys became the leaders in government and business living apart from humans and Changelings. The Changelings live with their own kind removed from both humans and Psys. There is little interaction between the three groups. This first story in the Psy/Changeling universe sees Lucas, a Changeling whose animal is a leopard, reacting to Sascha, a Psy who feels emotions. A Psy serial killer who has killed one of Lucas pack mates, a big attraction between Lucas and Sascha, a psychic web that Sascha must escape in order to leave the Psy come together in a spellbinding story. The book has great pacing and tension. The romance between Lucas and Sascha it bittersweet. Interwoven in the story are characters that will be featured in later books. I recommend Slave to Sensation to any of you who like paranormal romances.
