Item description for One Bright Star (Katiah) by Mickee Madden...
LOVE WAS NEVER PART OF THE AGENDA, BUT IN THE END, IT WOULD PROVE TO BE THEIR ONLY SALVATION. BREHAN TUCKER spends the first eighteen years of her life fighting poverty and abuse in an orphanage in Maine, then six years struggling to make a relatively simple life for herself and two other young women from the orphanage. But one stormy night, a roadside assassination attempt and a plummet from a cliff, sets her life on a course among the stars. Her hunger for freedom and identity ignites anew when she and the other women are stolen from Earth by a godlike being, as breeding stock to an alien race. With every intention of returning to her world, she uses her wits and cunning to sabotage his authority and win the loyalty of his crew. But fate has other plans for this fiery woman. ERTH is the unfortunate incarcerator. A being whose immeasurable power is confined within a humanoid shell, he doesn't expect this last journey to Earth to be any different than the previous twenty three. A Guardian, a Katian, his laws are unchangeable, his command, unquestionable, his will, undeniable. Until confronted with Brehan, he has but two goals: to produce a son, who is to replace him as supervisor on the re development of the new Syre race, and to return to Haveth where his own kind await him. But fate has other plans for him as well.

Not worth reading... Jan 14, 2006
Basically, the heroine is transported at the brink of death to be ensconced in a spaceship that never seems to go anywhere! The heroine is a whiny little orphan. She is extremely mean, and it was alright for the first fifty pages, but then it just got old. The science fiction portion of the book (more like fantasy) was alright, but I just couldn't stand the main character. The space hunk was okay, but her descriptions of him were vague at times. The book was violent, and don't expect a happy ending, because you have to buy another book to get to it (which I won't be doing). I liked her book Everlastin', but she really missed the mark with this one.
This is not a romance! May 18, 2004
This book should not be categorized as a romance. There are romantic elements in it, but it does not have the required happy ending of a romance. The story is also not finished in any sense of the meaning. It feels like half a book, so it is very very frustrating at the end. On page two the evil intelligence inside of the heroine is talking to her, on the last page that evil intelligence is still there inside her, and she is still pretty oblivious to it and nobody has done anything about it. I also found Brehan's actions to be really obnoxious, to the degree that I would have to classify her as Too Stupid To Live. Erth was an interesting character but I found it pretty hard to believe that he would love Brehan since she always behaved so badly to him.
I threw it in the [garbage] Aug 7, 2002
I read this and found it so totally boring that I threw the book in the [garbage]...
could have been better Apr 22, 2002
The book did not end just left you hanging so if you want to know what happens you have to buy the next book. I enjoyed the book but I don't like books that don't end it was like she just got tired and said I think I will stop here. If she would have finished it I would have gave her 5 stars not 3. I don't know if I will buy the other book or not I don't want another book that doesn't end.
Interesting Book Mar 29, 2000
I enjoyed the book and the concept. It was very unusual.
I loved the characters. She was supposed to have begun a sequel called Written in the Stars. If she has, I certainly have not been able to find it. I hope she does.
