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.
Despite this being both short and a continuation of a previously published story, Under by Treaty, it's in no way lacking any sort of details essential to "getting" this particular tale. I am super curious to know the backstory pertaining to the treaty and the war between humans and Qui, so I will most definitely be going back to read Under by Treaty to fill in any gaps and sate my curiosity. I'm also super interested in getting the Empress' story and how Jaden, previously Marcel's General, came to be the Qui Empress' consort. I've been warned by several people, the author included, that that story is darker and definitely more erotic than this story, and it's a warning I don't plan to heed. If the attraction to Dol'ce and Marcel is anything to go by, and their attraction was pretty darned hot, I can only imagine the sexy-times in Under by Treaty will set my Kindle aflame :)
Bottom line -- great sci-fi romance novella with a fair amount of steam between an alien and a human. I will definitely be continuing on with this series and also going back to the beginning by reading Under by Treaty.
**Many thanks to the author, Kayla Stonor, for gifting me a copy of this ebook in exchange for my honest opinion.
Colonel Abe Marcel is a prisoner, I'm not sure if he's a prisoner of war of if he's just another prisoner because his captives didn't like people from where Marcel is from - Earth. Marcel's rescuer is a Qui by the name of Dol'ce. Dol'ce's been handpicked by the Qui's Empress to rescue Marcel and bring him back to her then subsequently to Earth, his home. What Dol'ce doesn't expect is the absolute hate that Marcel has for her people. I thought he had grounds for the way he felt because of the circumstances around the war.
I had to depend on my imagination a lot with Dol'ce. She's some kind of reptilian-like race and my mind just couldn't wrap around that the description of her. I didn't understand Marcel's attraction but I'm not sure I was supposed to because I don't think he even understood it. There's some kind of scent that each puts off and the way the other person senses interprets that to the brain is what I'm guessing their version of the 'mate' phenomenon.
There's some passing conversation about Marcel's fellow soldiers and his guilt over their capture but it was over really quickly but I think that's the author's way of introducing additional stories about those soldiers. Other than that the Empress and her consort could have been interesting but I think they might have their own stories out there. I wish this story was longer, maybe I would have understood more with more story/character development but in my kindle version, the story ended at 76%, the remaining pages were excerpts from other stories in the series.
Happy Reading Folks!
