The chimera is a mystery that baffles the residents of New Omni—when his attitude isn’t making them want to kill him.
Even as a gladiator champion with many battles under his belt, the chimera finds the Dead Fall to be a challenge, so when the four-armed fire-warrior, Tak, saves his life, the shapeshifting chimera attempts to socialize, but his arrogance leaves the easygoing Tak in a fury with his thoughtless words.
Desperate for answers to understand how a mated male thinks, he seeks out Alice, Tak’s intriguing mate, while in his serpent form, and inadvertently discovers that Alice has secrets of her own. Secrets she must keep to protect her family.
The chimera and Alice enter into an uneasy bargain while he holds his silence, but he isn’t happy about the price of that silence on Alice and her mates. As he spends more time with Alice and experiences feelings for her that he’s never had before, it becomes a struggle for him to keep her secret, and he can’t help offering a solution—one that will cost him instead.
One that might cost his life.
Author’s Note: 18+ This is a steamy science-fiction alien romance with a reverse harem and ménage. Strong sexual content and some violence. No cheating, all parties are in agreement.
