Close Encounter of the Carnal Kind

A Novella by

Etienne Lambert, a Cajun ex-soldier fresh from the horrors of the war in Iraq, discovers that he's an alien when an alien woman arrives at his door to take him home. When he resists, she kidnaps him. He soon learns he is the last potent male in the royal line of their planets, and it's his duty to return to sire the next generation of the ruling caste.

Marika is a fightership commander who has succeeded where all the mages, seers, and trackers have failed. She has found her planets' last hope for salvation! When the future king demands that he start work immediately on the primary mandate of his rule--to sire children--she can't refuse his command.

Note: This 12,000-word novelette is a standalone story, but exists in the same world as Warlord's Destiny. Close Encounter of the Carnal Kind was previously released in an anthology entitled Ellora's Cavemen: Legendary Tails III many moons ago...
