I’ll begin by saying that I have developed a girl-crush on Kayla Stonor. Hehe. The woman made me blush. I really didn’t think that possible, I mean I’ve read some kinky stuff before but damn!! Then she tosses in the pain is pleasure vibe and I was hooked. Each story is different. I think what really got me, was the whole concept….Humans, unknowingly, giving off pheromones that attract these Aliens to us, & vice versa. How freakin’ neat is that? Made me ask if it could be a possibility, you know, in a galaxy far, far away. But seriously, I mean us, as a species, have barely reached the moon, yet, are we really alone? When you look up at a starry sky don’t you wish to know if there’s something more out there? It goes deeper but that’s neither here nor there. The question is, can these handful of soldiers who went out and fought for their home planet, Earth, only to get captured, tortured, and even killed, come back from the brink of insanity, with the help of the Aliens who want Peace between their species? Would you really be able to co-exist with said Aliens, knowing their kind have done what they done to your home, and to them? Now let’s keep in mind that the Aliens give off their own pheromones, and they’re shapeshifters. And when these soldiers each meet their rescuers, it’s like how Winnie The Pooh loves Honey, lol. Or cats in heat. A fat kid and cake. It’s hot, though. Kayla makes it real HOT!! Their true forms remind me of a faery or even like a fallen angel, but with scales and they’re either blue or green or blue-green, I especially love the wings!! Zeus thought Meseri was an angel. Speaking of Zeus, in his story, I felt like I understood the psychology of that better than Bea’s story. However, in messed up situations like these, it’s hard to say who had it more messed up than who. In each story, you see all of them still trying to cope with what had happened to them. As traumatic as it may be, their recovery was also sexy and even on the sweet side. I really liked how each story tied up. It wasn’t a dragged out ordeal, where you lose interest. It holds a steady pace and you can tell how the author’s writing gets better from each story. Each book was a bit longer than the last, and as she improved, the stories did as well. You want more. I’ll always remember this series for for it’s uniqueness because the whole concept makes you question things inside your mind. I know, I know, It’s fantasy, but why not question things? And who says it can’t be dark and sexy at the same time?
Release By Treaty:
I wish I'd read the prequel first, otherwise, solid 4 star enjoyable read.
I wish I had read Under By Treaty first, not so much because I felt I was missing key plot points, but I have a nagging feeling there is a lot of great world building in that book that would have answered some questions I had as I read this story. Things, for the most part, sorted themselves out and made sense to me by the time I had reached the end, but there were still a few things that I think would have instantly clicked into place had I read the prequel first. (I saw this was book 1 and read it, without thinking to look for a prequel, when I started seeing references to 2 other characters who have a relationship I clued in I should have looked a bit further.)
That said, I enjoyed the emotional conflict for these characters. Dol'ce knows Marcel has been abused, tortured, seen countless people die -- and all at the hands of people who are like her. How can he look at her and see something other than the enemy? And yet they are drawn to one another... for me this was a great story about remembering to view people as individuals... look beyond assumptions, prejudices etc, and approach each being as the individual they are or could be.
Restrain By Treaty:
Appearances Can Be Deceiving
Bea doesn't know Ardant is a shapeshifter who has taken on a human appearance after realizing the thousand and one things she has every right to hold against his species and other similar aliens. Be a was a prisoner of war, she doesn't know the war is over, a treaty has been signed, that the Qui are nobles and not their enemy... or who this being that rescued her from a living shell is. But the have 30 ship-days before they get where they are going, and that is plenty of time for Be a to try and figure Ardant out, and for Ardant to discover a few truths about fragile human woman.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and really enjoyed it as a third story in this series, in part because this time the human was a woman, which shifted some of the dynamics and expectations.
With each book the story continues to move forward, though at this phase Marcel's team is being gathered... so I find I am particularly interested in the characters at this point, with hopes there will be a book about their eventual return to Earth. (In large part because I am desperately curious about how such a book would unfold.)
In every book of Kayla Stonor's that I have read, I have been struck by the inner strength of her characters, and Restrain by Treaty was no exception.
Hunted by Treaty:
Seeing yourself through another's eyes can sometimes help you learn to accept all of yourself.
Crendea is half human, half alien... not only is she something Tyrone has never seen before, that Alien half comes from a species he has been at war with for most of his adult life.
Like the other stories in this series, a prisoner of war doesn't know a treaty has been signed, and the war is over. Each POW reacts in their own way, and is found in different circumstances... in the case of Tyrone not only do we see his inner strength from the start, but also his physical strength and determination.
I received this story from the author's newsletter, and wanted to post an honest review, in part because each story captures the sense of military service, touches on PTSD, and subtlety works in a lot of moments and character traits such that I come out of even a short novella that was a fast paced quick read feeling like I just read an entire book full of wonderful characters dealing with some very real issues in some extraordinary ways and places.

Commander Meseri shows Zeus how to take control of the things he fears and his memories
Commander Meseri is a Qui (Alien) who was introduced in the previous book, which gave her a chance to see some human relationships, and begin to understand we do things our own way. She is charged with safely transporting Zeus Windsor, an escaped POW who probably doesn't understand the war is over, back to Earth, by way of a meet-up with the rest of his unit. Zeus happens to be in the midst of killing every Alien who gets near him when the story begins - but as I said, he doesn't seem to know the war is over, so still fighting makes sense.
This is an interesting PTSD story, in part because Zeus has a variety of triggers and fears to face, doesn't know who to trust, and some of his former fellow soldiers are triggers as well - simply because he can't separate them from the events after they were all captured.
His struggle to work through the traps in his own mind, to find better ways to react to certain things, and healthier ways to think and live made this a compelling installment in the series. Add to that forward progression on the major story arc of relations between Earth and the Qui, and I can't wait to read they next story in the series.
I was gifted with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
