R'kos, son of the Ankylos Emperor, is expected to settle down. But he's much more attracted to human males than to his own species. Eager to explore his forbidden longings, he steals a ship and heads to Elora Ki to see if he can find the right human guy.
Darien robs the corrupt to give to those in need, but now he needs a ride off Elora Ki, stat. Pursued by drug lords, he accepts help from the amorous stranger who calls himself Ricky. As they fly together along Darien's route, their friendship quickly turns into passion.
But when Ricky is injured, Darien must contact the embassy to get his alien lover the medical care he needs. As Darien finds himself accused of kidnapping, and Ricky fears his family's disappointment, can the two protect their growing relationship? Or are their differences just too great?

The alien's balls. Seriously, I was like wtf at first but it got funnier...
Never heard him before. He did pretty well.
To be fair, the reviewer before mine is not lying, there are some corny parts in the beginning of this book, but I implore you to push through them, it's well worth it. This isn't a book that will one day become a movie but that doesn't mean it's not a good book. The writing is well done, the narration is well done, and the story is cute. There's just enough fluff, just enough action, just enough sex, and just enough heart. By the middle of the book and the end, the fluff fades and it takes on a more serious tone. I won't lie, I read romance for romance, and I am well aware that romance sometimes comes with cheese but this one was lightly dashed with it, and not covered in it Velveeta style like others I've heard or read. I am VERY pleased with this purchase and this story. It was worth way more than I paid. The characters were sweet and well put together. Thumbs up to the author and narrator. I shall look out for more by them in the future. Bravo!
Go out and read something!
You know. I have to say that I actually enjoyed this story. I was pleasantly surprised. I don't typically read a lot of Sci Fi, but lately, I've been on a mini kick. I enjoyed the many 'life' scenes parallel to current modern day human issues. This story is worth your time.
R'kos is a prince who's family is quite large, and at the center is a triad marriage-- which is typical of his alien race. The triads consist of two men and a woman. Thing is, R'kos is being stirred towards a marriage similar to his parents. But, it's a life he doesn't want. He is only attracted to men, and wants to choose his own path. He finds adventure with 'bad boy' Darien. He's had a rough life and steals out of necessity. He's stolen from the wrong bad guy, and he's on the run. R'kos comes along for the ride. They develop a deep connection, but are unable to fully communicate their needs and wants, and of course, fears which leads to dyer consequences. There were some scenes that sent a wild feeling of anticipation and pent up intensity up through my spine.
I'm a sucker for romance, and this was a pretty fun romance. Its a fun fast read. Enjoy.
This is a very traditional romance in a sci-fi setting, but really it is not science-fiction at all. That's ok, since it is slotted in the romance genre, so no false advertising. The writing is decent, and the audio performance too. However, I found the plot too light and too contrived. It's really all about lust, then brushed over with love. I can enjoy well-placed raunch as well as the next guy, but lines like "I had yet to see his face (NTD: and realize he was an alien] that my dick was too hard to think straight" or something such anyway, i don't have the audio playing right now, just are too corny for me.
Overall it is ok, but there are better quality ones out there.
