Finding big, strong aliens isn’t all that hard once you start looking for them. Motivating said aliens to protect your species from plague-infested space pirates? Ehhh...that takes a bit of bargaining.
For a warrior species on the brink of extinction, the price is an old-fashioned marriage alliance.
Which is how Lanie ends up speed-dating on a moon in the middle of nowhere—with no liquid courage in sight. Horns. Tails. Fangs. Claws. How's a girl to choose? Mix-and-match monsters as potential mates convince Lanie she’s offering herself up as a not-so-virgin sacrifice.
…and then she gets to know Delloruin, with his endearing protective streak and raw sexuality. Fen, who thinks deep and considers all sides while melting her with his soulful eyes. Hilom, who’s as sweet as he is deadly, a cocky fighter with a heart of gold.
It would be easy to love each of them…and hard to choose just one of them.
Thankfully, some aliens come in variety packs.
This is a short science fiction romance with many common tropes but the heroes are sweet and fierce as is the heroine and it will be fun to see where this world goes.
