Being captured by aliens is better than being sent home…
Fighter pilot Randy Rivers always has had a sassy mouth. This time though, it's not her mouth but her temper that lands her in trouble and given her marching orders home. That and apparently slamming a superior officer's face into a table is a no no. Even if the guy is a misogynistic asshole. And groped her. Faced with the prospect of going back back to over-crowded earth with it's slum-cities, she takes a high-stakes, off the book mission into the heart of enemy territory.
When things go sideways, she expects to end up as a prisoner of war, not holed up and kept secret from every one else on the ship by the sexiest alien guy. One who's determined to prove that enemies can make the best lovers…
Sometimes love can be found in the most unexpected of places… like under a seating rack.
Riis K'Vass knew humans could be unpredictable and, frankly, insane, but even he didn't expect them to try and sneak onto a heavily armed and armored warship, filled with a small army. They did though, and were easily captured. But, the numbers don't add up, and Riis realizes that they're missing one human. A female hiding in the tiniest of spaces, easily missed with how tiny human women are. A female who takes his breath away with her beauty and makes him smile with her stubbornness and intelligence.
Just a few days. At least, that's what he tells himself. If he can keep her secret for long enough to get himself some mating marks and bond her to him, then they'll never be able to take her away from him.
But jealous eyes are always watching and a warship is no place for keeping secrets. Especially where rare and coveted females are concerned. When Randy is discovered, Riis must fight for his life and a chance at a life with his little mate. Because mating marks don't do a warrior any good if he's dead…

This was such a cute short story and loved how it was written. Most short stories feel rushed and feel like missing bits to it but this was good for me.
Rii's Deserved Better I really love this series and this book but I will be honest that it ended way too quickly.. I was really getting into the story expecting to get updated on some of the previous characters and too find out more on peace talks. Admittedly the author would not know of my expectations as she is not a mind reader. I will say that Rii's deserved a longer story.. I won't stop reading this series or reviewing because I love the K'Vass Lathar world.
Not enough drama. Needs more time to develop their relation ship. I loved this series but am disappointed in this book.
Great read ... just too short
