Krol doesn't trust females. His brother's Queen tried to kill their son, and killed him when Krol escaped with the baby. Then she caught up with him and beat him almost to death, leaving him scarred and maimed. But Krol survived, and has been raising his nephew by himself in hiding for three years. Unlike the rest of his kind, Krol can see Bonding for what it really is, nothing more than a way for selfish, unscrupulous females to enslave the men around them. He is determined that will never happen to him, nor to his nephew, Ryll, who is the only thing keeping him from losing what's left of his mind out in the wilds.
Naomi is a Scout leader, so she's not too worried when she finds herself in a strange jungle. She knows how to survive. What she doesn't know is where she is or how she got there. Nevertheless, she's determined to put a brave face on things, until she discovers Krol and Ryll, who she thinks are Bigfoot! A misunderstanding leads Krol to attack her, but when torrential rain hits the area, they are forced to take shelter together in the same cave. Begrudgingly, they learn to trust each other, until they become each other's only friend in a sometimes beautiful, sometimes deadly world.
Staying together after the weeks of rain, they eventually stumble upon Ruth and Moira, two human women who are living with the 'Bigfoot' and can finally give Naomi the answers she needs about what's happened to her. Ruth and Moira have both settled down with the locals, and Ruth even has a baby with one of them, and Moira is pregnant! With their eyes opened to the possibilities, Naomi and Krol are forced to see each other in a new light, and wonder if maybe they could be more than friends, and finally make a real home in this alien land.
The Security Guy (Office Aliens Book 3)
by V.C. Lancaster on 2018-05-24
Anna has been sent to the San Diego branch of the Department of Extra-Terrestrial Immigration from her London PR company to negotiate a contract. Her job is to help improve the public image of the local Teissian refugee community after it has come under attack from a local politician.
On her first day there, she is invited to the office Christmas party. The next morning, she wakes up beside a tall scaled alien named Khy. Anna just wants to forget it ever happened - not that either of them can actually remember what happened - but Khy is insistent. In his culture, he is now honour-bound to stay by her side, at least until she can prove she's not pregnant. Anna knows it's impossible, but she can't get rid of him, and what's worse is that she's due at her brother's for Christmas in a matter of days.
With no other choice, she and Khy have to pretend to be in love for real so he can join her in New Hampshire for the holidays. When their relationship is suddenly exposed in the worst possible way, and Anna becomes a target for anti-Teissian protesters, Khy has to be her bodyguard as well as her boyfriend.
With everything spiralling out of Anna's normally tight control, Khy is the only one she can rely on. But what does that mean when the inevitable happens, and they're forced to admit she's not pregnant? With nothing keeping them together, they have to make a choice. Was any of it real? Or were they just a drunken mistake from the start?
