Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh

Slave to Sensation:
In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation...

I'm so glad that I went back and read the first of the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh. I had originally read the second book: Visions of Heat, first and was a little lost when it came to the world that Nalini created. But Slave to Sensation cleared up my questions and I can honestly say that I am loving this series. Admittedly the beginning was a little slow for me, but the story quickly picked up and the passion and sexual tension that fills every page kept me coming back for more. I loved both of the main characters: Lucas and Sascha, they played off one another beautifully. The world Sascha is used to is harsh and unfeeling, without the simplest form of touch, while Lucas was born to a world where touch is the most basic form of comfort. When the two of them are thrown together under the deception set up by members of Sascha's Psy Council, sparks fly as Lucas is determined to teach Sascha about living and the sensual nature of his inner cat.
