When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.
Wen, a Travian cadet on his first mission, stumbles upon a secret settlement of humans and Travians on New World Colony Seven. Affable by nature, he’s still recovering emotionally from his traitorous lover’s near-fatal beating. When faced with the terrible decision to put himself back in the control of a powerful male, he chooses the imposing human who raises both his fear and his interest.
Jonathan Dax is a first generation space child from New World Colony One. Against his better judgment, he has become the liaison for the settlement. He doesn’t trust Travians, including the fetching youth who kneels before him, begging to become his ‘boy’. The idea of becoming anyone’s master is repugnant. He hates the way Travians have claimed human boys as ‘pets’ and is loath to mimic their ways, yet, he cannot deny that Wen appeals to him.
At first, both Dax and Wen consider what they do in the privacy of Dax’s quarters a form of duty and no more. But the intensity of the pleasure and the emotions they share are impossible to ignore. They must each overcome their past and prejudices to form a real bond. Within the bucolic settlement, however, sinister forces are at work, and they threaten to destroy Wen and Dax’s budding relationship.
