The characters voices are what really made this book a blast to write though. There's three guys and three POVs in this one, and they're all adorable.
Carter is a captured engineer with a "Well, actually..." personality. Best example: Hermione.
Pykh was raised as a slave all his life and he's the cutest by far. He loves learning things and listening to Siel.
And Siel is his older cage buddy who once was a great warrior. He's the deep feels kind of guy, and his POV has some of the best chapters in the book.
First chapter is below. Some of it may change, especially Siel's lines... I'm just getting started on the editing notes today.
If you like alien romances and you also read m/f, check out V C Lancaster's Ruth & Gron series, which is equal parts romance, cuteness, and fascination.
V C Lancaster, Amanda Milo, and Ruby Dixon are all the inspirations I'm bringing to this book. :)
