Genre: Romance / Space / Gay / Arranged Marriage / Aliens /


BlurbSlightly edited version (25th December 2016)

Kellan Harrison is the son of Earth’s president and a successful ambassador. He is just not so diplomatic when it comes to the Phy’vohranians- lizard-like humanoids, which had been at war with the humans for over one hundred years now. 

The upcoming signing of a peace-treaty makes him reluctantly agreeing to accompany four women, who volunteer as marriage candidates for the alien crown prince. Instead he finds himself tricked into marring that prince himself- all arranged by his own father.

Knowing that a real chance of peace is at stake and the Phy’vohranian forces could easily turn Earth to meteor dust, he accepts his fate- including body alteration to have babies.
On his way to his new home, he comes to rethink his opinion on the alien race. But when he finally meets the strangely handsome, yet serious and grumpy Prince Sartak, he has no idea how to get along with that man. 

The wedding night’s a disaster but leaves Kellan pregnant; and conversation with the prince seems to be impossible, since the man replies only in sentences not longer than a few words.

Sartak knows he is not good with words and meeting the beautiful ambassador, to whom he feels an undeniable pull, is not helping with it. Trying to mend the things he has already broken in their relationship, he just doesn’t need the threat of another war.

As they forge a fragile bond of love, their unknown enemies try to tear them apart. They must learn who to trust and be able to rely on each other, or else their new found love cannot survive the hell descending upon them.

Warning: M/M human/alien romance with sexual explicit content and mpreg, violence, strong language
