Erotic Romance, Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic
Mavericks of Space Anthology
This is the re-release of the erotic science fiction short story ABDUCTION and it's sequel TRANSPLANT.
When Max Cooper, a "damaged" ex-Coast Guard officer, wakes up naked in a strange bed with no memory of how he got there, "alien abduction" is not what pops into his head.
It's Captain Tyla Natori's job to bring males from other worlds back to her own female-dominated planet to be put "on the market." When she finds a perfect male speciman in the form of Max Cooper, however, she decides he's the one for her…and he has no choice in the matter…
Or does he?
Max made his choice to stick with Tyla and become a Transplant on Triton. Only things aren't going too smoothly, right from the start. Max wants to be Tyla's only lover, and for a Triton woman, monogamy is unheard of. Then there's the fact that the queen's ordered Tyla to marry a Durian prince in order to prevent a war.
Nothing brings two people closer together than facing a common foe, but can Max and Tyla stop the marriage and still prevent a war?
Abduction: 6,700 words

Mavericks in Space is delightfully short and deliciously smutty.
Hot guy goes into a bar, hooks up with a hot gal and wakes up naked and in a spaceship millions of miles from home. What could possibly happen next?
Now, this duology doesn't have a whole lot of depth, but it does have likeable characters and a plot that harkens back to the Golden Age of Science Fiction stories (albeit w/o the blatant misogyny). It totally tickled this scifi fan to have the men 'kidnapped' to be sex toys for a change.
I do wish the stories were a bit fuller to round out some of the rough edges of pacing and storytelling, but when you take into account the constraints of the length (less than 15K for both stories), there's actually a lot that happens (including smexy times) in a short amount of time. If you are looking for a short and smutty scifirotica you can nibble on during lunch or while waiting for a train, then Mavericks in Space is your ticket to fun naughtyverse.
