She offers sanctuary.
He demands sexual torment.

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.

Qui Commander Meseri is charged with reuniting Lieutenant Zeus Windsor with his team of POWs. She captures a man on the brink of insanity, a lethal soldier who kills any K’lahn in reach.

Zeus lives a fractured existence, forever at war, seeking vengeance for what they did to him and his team. Meseri is Qui, a winged, angelic lizard who shapeshifts into a gorgeous human female. Her Qui form bears an alarming similarity to the winged lizards who tortured and experimented on Zeus, but her intoxicating pheromones transform torture into exquisite delight. He needs Meseri, for his sanity, to master his broken mind, and to live with what was done to him.

For Zeus left a man behind and the guilt eats away at his soul.

Only Meseri can break the cycle and set his mind free. Bound in submission to her sensual torment, Zeus finds new reason to live, and a new addiction – Meseri, a female who was once the enemy and now holds the key to his future.

This sexy alien shapeshifter romance is the fourth 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: This book contains scenes of graphic sex, language and violence unsuitable for underage readers. Kayla Stonor’s stories can be dark and edgy, hot and wicked, punishing and uplifting. Submit By Treaty contains consensual but gritty scenes involving extreme BDSM themes that take place for the characters’ personal reasons within an alien setting. These scenes invoke memories of torture suffered during alien captivity. Please do not confuse this story with a contemporary BDSM or femdom relationship. If you find certain themes uncomfortable reading, this story 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* Amazon Review by Katrina: “I am not going to give away any spoilers and ruin it for others but I will say that I believe this is the darkest book to date and I absolutely loved it…a very well-rounded read. Ms. Stonor’s books are engaging, dark, can get nitty/gritty, suspenseful and action packed all the while being totally relatable. This series just gets better and better.” Click here to see full review.

5* Goodreads Review by Marianne: “Submit By Treaty drew me right in, it kept me in a constant state of suspense ( and… ah… lust) – the hallmark of an unputdownable read.” Click here to see full review.

5* Goodreads Review by Jen: “Not an easy tale is told, but a beautiful reminder just how strong the human spirit and mind can be. Meseri and Zeus find their rhythm in space and tolerance is putting it mildly.” Click here to see full review.

5* Goodreads Review by Dora: “As I kept reading, I could feel how tentative the treaty between Qui and Earth is and how close it is to collapsing. The scars of all the human prisoners were still there. No simple bad-aids were added, giving the storyline an edgier, darker, raw feel. Even though they all found love, suspicion, weariness of captivity and war, have taken their toll on all parties involved. ” Click here to see full review.
