As has been the case since the first book, this one is perfect in every way. The characters are richly portrayed and make you like them from the moment you meet them. The story while similar to the others is just different enough to keep the interest in what is happening in that world. I was immediately drawn into the story and the lives of the people on this new planet with a twist. I really like this series because the characters are so interesting and full of contradictions. They hate what they love and cannot fully reconcile the feelings sometimes but still move forward.
Raiss Tyrone escapes from his K'lahn captors and goes on the run in hopes of getting back and rescuing his team. He finds himself on a planet inhabited by humans and K'lahn seeming to work together. What he has found are some of those originally abducted from Earth in the first K'lahn raids and taken to be used as slaves in the mines on this planet. As he makes his way across the planet he finds only a lone half-breed girl willing to help him.
Crendea is the child of a human woman and K'lahn man. She hates what she is because she feels that she can never be accepted by humans or K'lahn's fully. She has been able to keep from changing through sheer will but when she becomes stressed it becomes harder to do so. When she spots Raiss her first thought is to help him get away before he can be captured by the Qui who have come for him. She does not expect him to be much different from those she knows but finds someone who seems to understand who she is and how she feels.
The men here are all Alpha males but they also have a soft side, they actually cry, which can be sexy in its own way. The women are usually very strong, and this is no exception because she lives her life being mostly shunned but does so with dignity. The heat level was taken down just a bit but the story made up for it. Do Not miss this!
As usual there is a high level of sexuality in all the Qui / human interactions and it is definitely for those over 18. Very intense.
This novella series continues to get better and better with each new installment. I also love how Stonor brings something new and fresh to each story, rather than doing what so many other authors do by following a formula. Another highlight is the adversity that each pair of characters face. In Hunted by Treaty, both characters were flawed, scarred, borderline broken. Crendea was the target of hatred and bigotry because of her half-breed status; Raiss was tortured and disfigured and struggling to come to terms with the new "him". I adore imperfect characters and Stonor delivers on that aspect perfectly.
Each of these novellas can stand alone and the endings are complete, without cliffhangers. I recommend reading each and every one, even if it's out of order, because these novellas really pack a punch despite being such short stories. As with the previous two stories in this series, Stonor manages to seamlessly blend danger, steamy romance, and tons of action into such a short amount of pages and I always find myself wishing for just a few more pages whenever I reach the end.
I definitely recommend this installment, and the previous two, for readers who enjoy a short, steamy sci-fi read with sexy humans, sexier aliens, and a ton of depth.
**Many thanks to the author for providing an eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
