Publisher's Summary

Setting out to explore new worlds and meet fascinating aliens has never been quite this interesting before....

When starship captain Benjamin Rollins beams down to a strange alien planet that appears to have signs of intelligent life, he is shocked to be greeted by a human-like race of beings that traveled from Earth millennia ago and which claim to share a common ancestor with him. Their planet Titan is a wondrous utopia - their people live in peace and harmony, strife is unknown, and coupling is free and frequent. The primary physical difference, as far as Ben can tell, is that their young people maintain an indeterminate, androgynous gender until a mysterious “ceremony” where they reach adulthood and their gender is revealed to them. 

Ben is immediately taken with one of these beautiful androgynous youths named Eolwin, and the two of them return to Eolwin’s house so that he can learn more of the culture and make his report back to his crew. But when he accidentally completes one of these gender-confirming ceremonies with Eolwin, Ben wakes the next day to discover that the raging hormones that set the alien’s gender appear to be so powerful that they’ve spilled over to his own body and triggered some kind of strange metamorphosis! Ben is now a woman of Titan, physically female in every way. And Eolwin has now become his stunningly attractive mate...his male mate. 

Can Ben find a way to reverse the transformation and return back to the helm of his ship before he’s trapped on Titan as a woman for the rest of his life, or will he a find a way to cope with his new body and the strange new feelings he has toward his new lover Eolwin? With all of these amazing and novel sensations threatening to overwhelm him each day, the decision is harder than he ever imagined it would be....

Contains mature themes.

Entertaining and Immersive

Alyson Belle our a lot of thought and detail into this story, which clearly shows and you read through this detailed, elaborate adventure. It is entertaining and full of sweet romance as well as other exciting elements. I was hesitant to buy and listen to this one because it seemed like it would be too “out there” but I’m surprised at how much I liked it.
