They call him Marrex the Monster.

Deformed and wretched, Captain Marrex roams the black of space with only a pair of eccentric AIs for company. The curse in his DNA means a long, bitterly lonely life for the Ghelyxian, and it’s a fate Marrex knows he can’t change.

After a long sleep in stasis, Juniper Bo wakes to discover he’s an unwelcome guest aboard Captain Marrex’s ship. Though he tries to stay away from the surly Ghelyxian, he just doesn’t get why the curse is such a big deal—then again, Juniper knows his tastes are rather… unusual for a Human.

When friendship blooms between Marrex and Juniper, they realize they face a future that neither could have predicted in their wildest dreams.


Loved this story... hard...

Juniper, a human from Terra Deux, is awakened after 17 T years by S1N and VAL.
Their grumpy Captain Marrex, a Ghelyxian, didn't want to wake him (yet), he didn't know what or who was in the stasis pod they saved.

Marrex is cursed... abandoned. He didn't find his mate at the time he should have. Floating in his ship with just S1N and VAL (the ship's computer) by his side, through the darkest sides of the galaxy... for over a hundred years ...His features are not how they’re supposed to be. He has extra horns and his claws are long, his red fur isn't how it was originally. Through his eyes, he is an ugly beast. Therefore he is grumpy and rude, especially to his new guest Juniper. He will not show his gentle vulnerable side to anyone. Ha!

Juniper is the most beautiful human Marrex has ever seen in his life, an angel so opposite from himself. Only Juniper doesn't see an ugly beast. He sees right through him, and with his sweet honest behavior and his beautiful features he is totally disarming to Marrex 

When Juniper’s personality vaporized Marrex’s wall... it's not only his wall what comes down!

No road is without a bulge, there are some family problems that take Juniper away from big Marrex for a while. Without Juniper, Marrex is just a shell without a purpose and no faith in the future. Thank god Juniper’s confidence is stronger than his.

Wonderful creatures in a sexy romantic sci-fi environment with a lot of magical stardust.
Delicious read with endearing fluffy humor, hot encounters, love and much more.

This is written in a smooth vivid way, steady pacing and awesomely animated....as if I was watching a movie...I couldn't get enough of it. I read it twice in a row. So all the glittering stars!

  1. I'm not even sure what January has in store at the moment. I'm still trying to play catch up from December!

  2. I liked Bey's pirate stories, so it's good to hear it translates to SF too. Not sure about Jan, but I know Andrew Q. Gordon's 5th & final book in his Champion of the Gods series comes out this year.

  3. I'm actually looking forward to a PNR by Eileen Wilks!
