Xacier's Prize: SciFi Alien Romance (Galactic Courtship Series Book 1)
Lily Thomas, author
Xacier was once king of the proud Kell Empire, but after his cousin's betrayal he is enslaved in the fighting arena. The only way to survive? Kill everyone and be the champion. With his strength and skill, only a few battles now stand between Xacier and his freedom, and he will stop at nothing to get out and get his revenge. But when a human woman is thrown into the arena, Xacier will find himself fighting to defend her, at the risk of losing his freedom - and his life. Samantha is crossing the galaxy to visit her ailing mother, when she is sold to the Frirens and tossed into the middle of an arena battle. Completely out of her element, her only hope of making it out of here alive lies with the strong and ruthless alien who claims her as his prize. Winning their freedom won't be easy, though, and even if they do make it out together, Samantha isn't sure she'll be able to part ways with this warrior who captured her body and her heart.
