This book is about a handsome man named Sean (who just so happens to be a porn star). He finds himself abducted and dropped into an auction on an alien planet. Deemed unworthy of going through the sale due to the scar on his lip, he is unceremoniously dumped outside of the auction house to die in a dust storm. He is rescued by one of the residents of the planet. Da'Ceer is a slave who worked his way up to being a token security guard in the marketplace. He had brought his little brother with him to work on the worst possible day. When he stumbled over Sean who had already become buried in a sand drift he picked him up carried him to a shelter within the city for the slaves. Due to the poor maintenance within the shelter, it proves to be a death trap for the cold-blooded residents of the planet. Sean, being warm-blooded, kept the alien and his younger brother alive and warm enough that they were able to survive the fridged shelter. They survived the first storm, but the battle to survive had only just begun. Sean and his new alien friend become a bit more than just friends. The new turn in their lives is difficult for both of them to accept, but when they are forced to flee along with Da'Ceer's family
There are plenty of plot twists in this book and I hope that people will be drawn in for the usual MC's because I found them a pleasure to write about. This is the first book, but there will be more!.
This book is a m/m romance, alien abduction romance, AND an mpreg.

I haven't explored the sci-fi genre of MM romance much yet. Maybe my fifth book, three of which I didn't finish. This one I did finish! Quite quickly, in fact. If you are weirded out by the idea of a human and lizard-like alien mating, this isn't for you.
Sean is just a regular guy. Desperation leads him to become a porn star. He's about to have his big break in the porn world when he's abducted. Not cool aliens! Turns out he's abducted only to be thrown away for being 'defective.' Moronic slavers, you'd think they'd be smart enough not to waste time and money (and lives) abducting people that have visible scars. Frozen, defrosted, and quickly thrown away on some desert planet. Talk about a shitty day. Could things get worse? Oh hell yeah they can. A humongous deadly sandstorm is coming.
Da'Ceer is a lizard-like alien. I can't remember if his species is given a name. He's a slave on the desert planet (if the name was given, I've forgotten it). He is the first slave to become a security guard, although he doesn't have any real power or respect among the non-slaves. Da'Ceer takes his little brother with him to work. He soon spots the sandstorm coming and runs with his brother to one of the slaver's shelters. On his way, he stumbles upon Sean's semi-conscious body and decides to take him along. That one decision saves all three of their lives.
Upon going home, Da'Ceer and Sean find out they are true mates. Da'Ceer goes into heat and becomes pregnant. He's not too happy about being the pregnant one. It's a death sentence on the planet. He, Sean, and his entire family have to escape before that happens. Da'Ceer's father, a very smart man, has been planning escape for many years.
During their escape, they meet and save the only living royal. This interaction begins a revolution for the planet. The events that followed were interesting; I won't spoil anything though.
I liked this sci-fi story. I enjoyed the characters and the romance. I read it fast and it kept me interested. I hope to find more sci-fi books as equally enjoyable as this one. I look forward to seeing what happens in the next book. A lot of change has begun, I want to see where it goes.
Hi. My name is Jordan K Prince. I live and breathe MM fiction. I am particularly fond of mpreg; I can never get enough. I'm in the process of writing my first MM novel, mpreg, of course.
