His touch unleashes her heritage.
Hiding is no longer an option.

After decades of war, the Qui Empress ushers in a new era when she takes a human tribute as her price for a peace treaty with Earth. She orders the surrender of all human prisoners of war.

Butchered and broken, Raiss Tyrone has escaped his K’lahn captors and is running for his life. The arrival of a Qui warship in orbit sparks an intense man hunt. A K’lahn garrison is out in force, chasing him down. His only hope is a strange, insecure half-breed woman, part human, part K’lahn.

Crendea has never come to terms with her alien shapeshifter affliction, a genetic aberration from her K’lahn father. She lives with the shame, terrified of exploring the full extent of her heritage. Now a single look from Raiss Tyrone, lust in his eye, and her sparkling lizard scaling bursts forth. His delicious scent and warm touch ripples a terrifying change across her body, and neither of them are prepared for the genetic frenzy they are about to unleash.

This sexy alien shapeshifter romance is the third in a futuristic collection inspired by Under By Treaty, a space opera romance in Kayla Stonor’s Surrender collection. Each tale in the Qui Treaty Collection is a standalone novella set in the Qui galactic empire, with annihilation of mankind held at bay only through the Treaty consummated between the Qui Empress and the human consort abducted under its terms.

Reader please note: Kayla Stonor’s stories can be dark and edgy, hot and wicked, punishing and uplifting. If you find certain themes uncomfortable reading, these stories may not be for you. Although this alien shifter story is standalone, it is set within a wider space opera saga and it is recommended that the short stories are read in order.


5* Goodreads Review by Shurrn. “There’s quite a bit of action and suspense with this one, plus a heaping helping of will they or won’t they…” Click here to see full review followed by excerpt.

5* Review by amiesbookreviews: “This story is science fiction, but is also romance, erotica and drama. The characters are believable and fully realized. The author also has a talent for description. It takes skill to make a half-human, half-lizard-creature comes across as sexy and desirable, but Kayla Stonor achieves this with seeming ease. ” Click here to see full review.

5* Goodreads Review by Marianne: “I love how they are able to see past what the other person percieves as a weakness or a disability – and bring out the best in one-another by choosing to focus on uniqueness and latent inner strengths rather than what is imperfect or deviant from the social norm.” Click here to see full review.

5* Amazon Review by Mark: “The dynamic between the two main characters was intoxicating with it’s ups and downs in not only emotions but the physical parts as well. There is nothing better than an author who can build unique world with words but incredible relationships as well! ” Click here to see full review.

4* Amazon Review by Meigan: “In Hunted by Treaty, both characters were flawed, scarred, borderline broken. Crendea was the target of hatred and bigotry because of her half-breed status; Raiss was tortured and disfigured and struggling to come to terms with the new “him”. I adore imperfect characters and Stonor delivers on that aspect perfectly.” Click here to see full review.
