An elite member of the Psi Police Corps, Maurra instinctively goes to the alien’s defense when she sees him attacked by a group of vicious Kronners. Her attempt fails and Maurra wakes, naked, in a cell on a Kronner ship—her psionic abilities rendered useless.She discovers that the alien, Safan, was also kidnapped and is held in the cell next to hers. They are both horrified when a disembodied voice tells them their lives will be spared on one condition: that they have sex for the amusement of their “audience”.

In a situation with no escape, Maurra and Safan reluctantly obey and are surprised to find that their intimate performance opens them to new levels of pleasure. But when their captors reveal the next level of their sick plan, Maurra and Safan grow desperate to escape—together.


When Maurra steps in to stop a fight between an Ellinod and Kronners outside a bar, she is taken out from behind by another Kronner. She wakes up naked in a cell on a ship with the Ellinod prisoner in another cell as well. Their captor demands that they have intercourse while being recorded so that he can broadcast to paying “customers”, if they don’t he will kill the Ellinod and bring in a less humanoid creature to fornicate with Maurra. The story follows Maurra and Safan while in captivity and even after wards while they face the repercussions of inter-species sex that they were forced to have. (you see that is a HUGE no no)

I really liked Safan. I thought he was a fascinating character and it wasn’t because of his species. He was a strong minded and took control of the situation and even though he didn’t know Maurra, he still had the drive to protect her. However, he was willing to pass the reins to Maurra and let her take charge and trust in that she knew what she was doing.

I thought the author did a good job with world building without overwhelming the reader with information. The characters were nicely developed to where you got a sense of who they were without taking pages to explain their back history, after all the story is only 186 pages long. The only thing I was a little bummed about was how predictable the story is. I was sort of hoping for a curve ball but even so the story was still good.

Safan is trying to get the ships computer to make him clothes but it isn’t understanding the measurements he is giving it because his species is so large.

“It keeps giving me an error message.” He growled. Fearing he might punch out the data board, Maurra pushed him aside to try for herself.
“Are you sure you entered your measurements correctly?”
“Four times.”
After double checking his input, she pressed Enter. There was a moment of silence, followed by a click, and a message popped up on the display.
“Data does not compute. Do you want a blanket?”
