The nobleman and the slave!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🪐🪐🪐🪐
Character development: 🤖🙄👽
The heroine: Milly – she was abducted and bought by a wealthy woman and brought to the Mesakkah home world in order to be the woman’s gift to a wealthy and cruel alien.
The Hero: Varrik va’Rin – he is a Lord and head of house va’rin, a VIP on his planet Kes, and one of the biggest players in society. He is used to getting his way and when he sees Milly, he wants her. He attends a month long party at another of the important houses.
The Story: Lady Draneeran is hosting the party and Varrik assumes she will end up proposing a marriage alliance between their two houses. He plans to entertain the offer in order to keep the wealth and standing his name garners. He is wealthy and stuffy, the kind of alien that won’t allow others to use his name because he is the highest ranking noble at the party.
This was a very short novella, though this is the one in the series I wanted to read most after reading the blurb, but was a bit disappointed. I didn’t really like how stiff and snobbish Varrik was. Though I liked the fact that he treated Milly like a valuable person from the start even though she is a human, who his kind thinks of as nothing more than a slave or an animal.
