What happens when the gods play tricks on humans?
Madria leads a very satisfying life as a cat, until one night when she stumbles upon a pair of arguing gods. When one of them points at Madria, changing her into a human, the stunned and confused ex-feline manages to drag herself home and collapse on her master’s doorstep.
Antonius is astonished when he finds an unconscious, nude woman on his doorstep, and pleased to see her beauty surpasses the ideal he had pictured for a perfect mate.
Soon Antonius is falling deeply in love with the woman, yet her strange behavior makes him wonder if perhaps she’s a mystical being.
Madria has always loved Antonius and finds her experiences as a human exciting, especially the passionate sex they share. But how long before the gods return to wreak more havoc—or return her to her previous form?
Every once in a while, I encounter a book that makes me go, well frankly, ick. This is one of those books. Madria is a cat. Not a shifter. Not a Were anything. She is Antonius’ house cat. He is strangely attached to her, at least according to his friend. She disappears one night and then a naked woman arrives on his doorstep.
The naked woman informs our brilliant hero that she is also called Madria. She purrs when she sleeps. He thinks this is odd, other worldly but he likes having sex with her so he doesn’t give it much thought. They fall in love.
Yes, Antonius falls in love with his house cat in her human form. The sex scenes are well written and hot, if you can get past the ‘ick’ factor that really kept me pretty grossed out. But that might just be my stomach. People looking for something new, looking for something they won’t find elsewhere should give this book a try. It’s unique.
