When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.
In a not-too-distant future, a lopsided war has led to aliens invading and occupying an Earth settlement. Wid is a young colonist who has been caught harassing the aliens. He and his friends are rounded up and sent to an alien warship patrolling the disputed space. His fate is to serve as a sex slave for the ship’s imposing captain. Wid, at first, fights against his enslavement, but soon learns that not only does he stand no chance against the much larger and stronger captain, he isn’t sure he even wants to.
Like all Travian males, Kell is bound by duty to defend his people. Having risen to the rank of captain, he nevertheless chafes against the boring and endless patrol of the space invaded by the humans. His misses his family and constantly guards against his scheming first officer. He sees his reward of a human sex slave as more of a nuisance. Yet the pretty, fair-haired human’s exotic allure is hard to resist. He finds far more pleasure in the use of his pet than he would like.
Kept naked and leashed, Wid’s days are filled with boredom, while his nights wrapped in Kell’s arms turn from fear into pleasure. Even as the humans plot their escape, Wid and Kell form a bond and their growing affection cannot be ignored. When tensions boil over among the aliens, Wid and his friends may be Kell and his crew’s only chance for survival. Reader Advisory: This book contains sex scenes of both non-consensual and dubious consent, as well as scenes of violence, abuse and torture.
4 out of 5 (very good)
First of all, this book comes with a Reader Advisory - TAKE NOTE OF IT! Seriously, this book is not for everyone and contains scenes that may trigger. Don't think that the advisory is put there for the fun of it because it isn't, believe me. The story itself is complete sci-fi. Earth has become overcrowded and colonists are sent out to various planets that have been discovered. One such planet, Seven, where our main character Wid comes from, has apparently been colonised by the Travians. War ensues between the humans and the Travians, resulting in a mindless act of vandalism that results in Wid and his associates being taken aboard the Travians' ship. What happens next is why the advisory is there. There is a lot of violence and rape, although it is incredibly well written. I won't say anything else about that part but this IS dark and it does come with an advisory. As the story progresses, you see that some of the boys, Wid included, start to actually have a relationship with their captors. This doesn't feel like Stockholm Syndrome to me, mainly because of how it is written with each of the boys' personalities and experiences taken into account. You learn more about the Travian way of life and, indeed, the Travians learn more about the humans and why they won't just leave Seven even after they've been defeated. I enjoyed this book, even if parts of it did make me uncomfortable, I'm glad I stuck with it. I would certainly be interested in going further with this series. I can't emphasise enough though - TAKE NOTE OF THE ADVISORY!!

Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I wish I had something exciting to put here – something like I’m a dominatrix who spends her days having gorgeous men lick chocolate off her body.
The truth is I’m a corporate lawyer, happily married for twenty years with three kids and four dogs. No white picket fence, but we do live in the burbs west of Boston. While my husband and I still do occasionally lick chocolate off each other, our more typical evening involves lying in bed once the kids are in theirs and reading separate books. Mine of course are romance. I started reading them as a defense against all those boring legal documents. Once I started, I couldn’t stop.
I love all types of romance, although my favorite stories are the ones with a kick-ass heroine. I devour anything by Nora Roberts (including J.D. Robb), Suzanne Brockmann and Jessica Andersen. Of course the heros in their stories kick ass, too. There’s nothing sexier to me than an Alpha male, except an Alpha male that’s willing to not only accept an Alpha female as an equal, but also willing to let her take charge from time to time.
I’ve loved erotica and especially male-on-male stories since my teen years. I stole a thin book by someone named Anonymous from my older brother’s drawer and found the best parts had two guys getting it on. What an eye-opener those scenes were! I thought I was the only straight woman perusing the gay male fiction in the bookstore all these years. Imagine my surprise when Ellora’s Cave gave a talk at an RWA conference one year asking for the very thing that’s always turned me on. It was a natural fit.
Besides my family, writing and reading, my loves include the sight, smell and sounds of the ocean (I’m a New England girl through and through), chocolate (naturally), prime rib (bloody) and good bourbon on the rocks. Whenever I’m out of town for a conference or other business, I also look for a male strip club or revue. I know – so cheesy. But the guys are hot and very attentive if you tip well enough. My husband is fine with this, by the way. He figures he gets the benefit of all that hotness when I get home. And he does, too!
Writing has been my passion since I was a child. Thank you so much for helping me realize my dream of not only writing, but writing something that other people enjoy!
