The Alien Corporal by C. Y. Croc
“I’ve won a small Human Female. All I have to do now is keep her safe and get her to like me!”
The other males gave me daggers as I raised my winning ticket in the bride lottery the captain held for the safety of the three Human females. I couldn’t tell if the female I won had a look of relief or disbelief in her eyes when she I chose her. Either way, she is mine now and I will do everything in my power to protect her from the Badligons, a flying species thought to be extinct, but who are trapped on this planet with us—and safe from the males I thought were my comrades.
Thankfully, the alien who chose me is the most appealing of the bunch. However, although surprisingly cute and sexy, he is also the smallest and least intimidating out of the bunch. Will he keep me safe on this planet? Will he be able to protect me from the flying aliens? Will he protect me safe from his mutinous friends? The look in their eyes is making me tremble with fear. I only hope my new alien husband is tougher than he looks, otherwise we’re both dead.”
This story could be read as a standalone love story, but the main plot is a follow on story from book 1, The Alien Admiral and book 2, The Alien Lieutenant and will make better sense if you read them first.
