Thirty years after his father, the High Ruler of Katzmann, was murdered, Commander Chellak Rai has finally returned to reclaim his birthright. What he finds is more than he expected or could ever have hoped for.
Demyan is a bruter, one of the rare and exotic people of the planet Elquone. He is also a slave. And according to his contract, if he does not have a master, he must be returned to the cruel hands of Vortigern Vedek, the man that killed Chellak's father and stole his throne.
For Chellak, it is a double-edged sword. He knows the moment he meets Demyan that the sexy little man is his destined mate but the laws of his planet state that he can not own a slave. To keep Demyan, he must defy his own laws and beliefs. But keeping Demyan is not as easy as winning his heart.

There’s a bunch of people – so afraid, they even refuse to look him in the eye. And most bemusing of all - he is now the owner of a bruter, and although he has no idea what a bruter is, he does however know that he’s the most beautiful man he has ever seen and his mate.
Demyan has suffered numerous punishments at the hands of Vortigern Vedek and his demonic son, now that they have been ousted and a new ruler is in place – he expects nothing less.

When they are mated however, a very special event happens between mated parties, which very few people know about. Chellak has waited what feels like an eternity to get his planet back. When he gets a two for one deal, with finding his mate as well – his joy is only marred by the fact that his mate is a slave and things are not looking optimistic for a future for them.
Demyan is a new entity to Chellak – not only is he beautiful, but graceful. Demyan however has a special ability that will have Chellak having his cake and eating it too.
Ms. Glenn’s THE KATZMAN’S MATE is a well thought out story, with surprises aplenty, characters that tear at your heart strings and enough tension filled scenes that will have you thumbing the pages of this book for a long while after you have read it.
The KATZEMAN’S MATE contains all the aspects that I like in a book – and I will be looking forward to the next story that Ms. Glenn pens.
5 STARS - Rainbow Reviews
Chellak is your strong virile alpha that has come back to his home planet to revenge his father and overthrow the dictator who invaded thirty years ago. Demyan is the submissive bruter that becomes Chellak’s slave with the removal of the old ruler. Unsure of what exactly a bruter is but strongly attracted to the man whom Chellak realizes is his mate causes some difficulty for Chellak.
The emotional struggle these two go through because of past abuses, and the inability to understand each other, will pull at your heartstrings. The scene when they finally get together is one of the best while the scene where Chellak finds out what a bruter is will having you chuckling. The Katzman’s Mate is another strong story by Stormy Glenn and one I highly recommend. -- Review by Lydia
Romance At Heart
Relationships are sketchy on any level when new, and in The Katzman's Mate by Stormy Glenn, her characters get off to a slow start. It is not Chellak's fault, nor is it Demyan's either. Both men are thrown into a tough situation, and the one who has the information can't share. Demyan finds a lot to admire in the huge warrior who now holds claim to him, and is very puzzled by the man's actions. He knows the High Ruler is attracted to him, but cannot understand why he is avoiding Demyan. Chellak, on the other hand, is torn by his feelings for the little brüter, and he fears, more than anything else, that Demyan will turn from him. He is afraid Demyan think he is a savage like Viorel Vedek, or that he is forcing himself on the object of his affections.
The course of true love never runs smooth, and Chellak and Demyan find that out first hand. Chellak's brother Ciprian and his mate Yerik try to advise the couple, but there are times when people just have to figure things out concerning love and marriage for themselves. Sensual, riveting, and full of intrigue, The Katzman's Mate is a tale you are not going to wanna miss. Ms Glenn has proven herself a Mistress of the Erotic, and the story of Chellak and Demyan is no exception. The book is available at Siren-Bookstrand, and is a great read for those of you who enjoy a walk on the wild side. I really enjoy the way Stormy tells a story, and I think if you give The Katzman's Mate a chance, you will too!
