Overview

Enemy Captain Fedroval – Val for short – shoots down a one-man fighter out near the Galactic Rim, but the pilot, much to his surprise and horror, is a human woman named Lisbet Duncan. The alien warriors have a strict code. In their culture, making war on females is a shameful stain on one's honor. The captain doesn't quite know what to do with Lisbet, but he can't let her die alone in space. He orders his men to tow her life pod into their battle ship.

Val is the last of his line – heir to a doomed legacy – because no respectable jit'suku woman will have him after the destruction of his family. He has put all his considerable resources into building his state-of-the-art battleship and joining the fight to take the human galaxy, hoping to restore his honor in some small way. This is Val's first foray into human space and his first encounter with a human female. He finds her strangely alluring and altogether irresistible.

Lisbet is attracted to Val as well. When he puts the moves on her, she can't resist his masculine charm, but she doesn't like being a prisoner - even if she is being kept in a gilded cage, treated more like a guest. She doesn't know a lot about jit'suku culture and it's pretty clear they don't understand much about humans. It's going to be fun educating her captor about just how headstrong, fierce... and loving... a human woman can be.

Not bad, but short and only has a few kisses, not that is a bad thing. just seemed a bit of a let down. Not to complain but it was like the author kind of did the 100 pages of large text is good enough thing and ended the story. Sorry bit of a spoiler guy shoots girl ship, saves girl, kisses girl, few days later explains what kiss means to his race, girl is okay with it and agrees to stay with man, the end. I have read better short stories from this author and reread those several times this one will not be one of those.

I usually love this author, however this seemed like a good first and second chapter of a book then a few lines to wrap up the end. I was left with a very incomplete feeling. This felt like a waste of money and time.
