Faythe Sanders is known for having a quick-temper and stubborn characteristics. She is constantly making hasty decisions, even if it puts her or someone else in jeopardy. Faythe is a tabby were-cat and due to the lack of female were-cats, is considered rare and valuable to her species. After surviving a traumatic episode, due to being kidnapped and almost sold on the Brazilian market to the highest bidder, she has returned home to her Pride in Central Texas.

Faythe is committed to serving a 2 and a half year term as an Enforcer to her father, the Alpha of the Pride. Partnered with her current boyfriend and long term lover, Marc, their job is to patrol and capture strays that enter their territory. They were on assignment to apprehend a stray were-cat and escort him to the free territory when they received information leading to a series of murders involving only stray were toms. During the investigations of the murders they noticed several strippers had gone missing in the area that the toms were last seen visiting. In the midst of this, Faythe started receiving strange phone calls from her human ex-boyfriend that she dated briefly while she was away at college.

Faythe is striving to prove to her parents and Pride members, that she can defend herself without them sheltering her. Unfortunately, her decisions often lead to mistakes, mistakes that put her friends and family's lives in danger. When the past comes back to haunt her, Faythe has to learn to put her egotistical ways aside and amend her errors for the sake of her Pride, the person she loves and her own life.

"Rogue" will capture the reader and pull them in. I loved the way Mrs. Vincent has progressed with this book. The characters are so vividly wrote that the reader feels caught up in all thier emotions. The plot flowed smoothly together and will keep the reader captivated till the end of the book. This is the 2nd book in the Were Cat series by Rachel Vincent. The first book is titled "Stray". If you like to read about shape shifters and you like paranormal genre books, then I would absolutely recommend this series.
