Summary: When the Alphan warrior Nakai captures a Xyran pirate ship, the last thing he expects is to have his heart stolen by a beaten, human male named Einian. He’s equally surprised by the ship’s other captive, a badly injured Xyran who’s apparently important to the human Nakai has rescued.
Nakai wants to court Einian and take him as his mate. But he can’t ignore the Xyran Sukh, in part because of Einian’s feelings for him … and in part for reasons Nakai doesn’t even want to admit to himself.
But when Einian’s life is in danger, Alphan and Xyran must work as one to find him, each finally willing to face the attraction between them.
But have they left it too late?
Another m/m/m story that called my name.
The blurb is pretty accurate, Nakai comes from a planet with very few females, that’s why human females are highly prized. Lucky for him, he doesn’t really want a female, but the male human Einian, even badly beaten is exactly what he wants.
But there is a catch (isn’t there always). Einian was the sex-slave of Sukh and despite difficult circumstances ( I have to admit, I wasn’t happy with how Einian was treated before by Xyran, even if I understood that it was necessary in the tribal-warlike culture on Xyran) he is in love with Sukh and Nakai is a very understanding alien and wants what’s best for his mate. Plus something about the other alien pulls at him too.
So he sets out to woo them both, there is some intrigue and deceit, some world building and some sex, although not as much as I would have thought.
All in all a good ménage, with two big alpha males and a cute little fragile human.
