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!

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.
This was a really great entry for me! I loved both the characters, particularly Dol'ce because she has been warned about what to expect. The characters continue to be realistic and able to make me feel for them deeply. The story is about romance while at the same time being about a wider issue that is just being hinted at.
Dol'ce has been sent to collect a prisoner of war, Colonel Marcel, from the K'lahn prison in which he was being held. Dol'ce does her duty and does not at first believe what the Qui Empress has told her about interacting with human males, it sounds ridiculous. As the journey continues she finds herself more and more drawn to her passenger who does not want anything personal to do with a lizard.
Colonel Marcel has been tortured, and humiliated during his time in the K'lahn prison. He has heard his team go silent during that time and believe himself to be the last man standing. He hates the K'lahn and all those associated with them for good reason. He does not know that the war has ended but feels something for the one who rescued him, though he does not want to.
All I can say is that I really loved it! I would recommend to everyone!
