Logan McRae never expected to see two aliens when he woke from cryogenic sleep. He has lost his ship and his people and he questions whether he has lost his mind. As he gets to know Halor and Kit he realises he might just lose his heart as well.
Logan expected to wake on the spacecraft Mercury, ready to pilot the ship down to New Earth. Instead he comes out of cryogenic stasis to find he is on another ship with two alien beings, neither of whom can understand anything he says. Unfortunately, they are all the help he has if he wants to find his people and resume his journey.
Kit doesn’t know what sort of creature he has accidentally purchased, but it is definitely male and isn’t so very different from him and his lover, Halor. The language barrier might be a problem, but Kit knows the language of love doesn’t always need words.
Prince Halor of the Hawk Clan has always been reluctant to expand his nest beyond himself and Kit, but it is obvious from the start that his feline lover is attracted to their unexpected guest. Halor will do anything to give Kit the happiness he deserves, even invite another man into their bed.
Logan has no idea that Kit isn’t quite like other men until their passion results in unexpected consequences. Now he must choose between his mission and the two men who have given him everything he ever wanted, as well as things he never dreamed of.
When Logan stepped out of the cubicle, the cat-man was waiting for him with a clean kilt, similar to the ones worn by them. Logan had never worn such a garment in his life, but it was clear this was the only alternative clothing available if he wanted his flight suit cleaned.
His decision made, his covered himself quickly, though not quickly enough to avoid the frank appraisal of his feline host, whose green eyes lingered just a little too long on his groin.
Logan had taken his share of lovers before leaving Earth, but he couldn’t recall ever being looked at quite like that. The feline licked his lips and made no effort to hide his stares.
During his time on the ship, Logan had watched the two lovers touch and kiss almost constantly whenever they were together in a room. He had seen the feline drop to his knees and suck the cock of the bird-man at least once a day. Late at night, when they had disappeared down the hatch, the sounds of their sexual activities echoed throughout the ship. Even if they hadn’t given him a show right there on the flight deck, Logan would have to have been blind and deaf not to have figured out their relationship was far more than that of shipmates.
Since he had been seeing far more than was decent, Logan had also noticed that their feline and bird-like features were combined with those of men. Fur and feathers may have replaced hair, their eyes may be those of birds and cats, but there was enough about the two of them to make it clear they were very much men, not so different from himself.
They were actually quite pleasant to look upon. The feline was adorably cute, with a mischievous grin that never failed to bring a smile to Logan’s lips. As for the bird, Logan not only admired his elegant beauty, he was in awe of his incredible strength.
Logan shivered at the want he saw in the eyes of the cat-man. He might not understand a word he said or even know his name, but the blatant sexual need in his gaze needed no translation.
The squawk of the bird-man alerted them to his presence. Logan jumped, feeling guilty, despite having done nothing to encourage the cat to stray.
The feline grinned and licked his lips again. He meowed and gestured to Logan’s dirty clothing. Logan hoped he was going to get them cleaned, not have them thrown away.
Logan stepped aside so the cat-man could pass him, only for him to run his clawed finger lightly along his chest, sending another wave of shivers down his spine.
As the cat-man passed his lover, the bird-man tapped his arse playfully, causing the feline to swipe at him with his tail. Logan could tell they were merely playing and relaxed a little. As long as the bird-man didn’t think he was trying to steal away his lover, things should be okay.
The feline vanished from sight and Logan stepped towards the door. That was when he realised the cat-man wasn’t the only one who apparently admired his human body. The bird-man halted his progress with a hand on his chest, which turned into a soft caress, running over his abdomen and down to the front of his kilt.
Logan couldn’t have stopped his body reacting if his life had depended on it.
MPreg but not as you know it
First of all, thank you for visiting me here today to help celebrate the launch of my new book, Loving Kit.
Anyone who reads male/male romance stories will know that there are a whole variety of different ways two men in a relationship together can start a family. There is adoption, sometimes of a child of a family member who has either died or is not in a position to care for said child. Another alternative is that one of the men might have previously fathered a child with a woman. There is also the possibility of using a surrogate. Any of these can work, depending on the story.
But there is also another possibility, one that tends to cause all sort of ructions in the romance reading community. That possibility is male pregnancy. It is a love it or hate it concept and it tends to bring out a lot of strong feelings from both those who read the genre, and those who wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole.
The fact that Loving Kit is a male pregnancy story should tell you which side of the fence I fall in.
That being said, it isn’t your typical story for the genre.
From what I have seen MPreg stories largely fall into two categories: shifters and Omega-verse. I admit that I have only read the former at this point. There are a few Omega ones that have caught my eye, but I do like my shifters.
There is a third possibility, which while not as popular as the other MPreg varieties, is my favourite, and that is aliens. And since, in my humble opinion, there just aren’t enough of this variety of MPreg stories out there, I offer you Loving Kit as my own small contribution to the genre.
In Loving Kit there are various different types of aliens, with several planets in the solar system that hold life of a humanoid variety. On one of those are the felines, a race of beings who evolved from large cats, in the same way that we evolved from primates. Other aliens evolved from types of birds, insects, and canines. However, it is only the felines who are known to have pregnant males amongst them.
I used a combination of scientific facts about our own cats, including researching feline hermaphrodites, as well as the tried and trusted novelist approach of ‘making stuff up’. I hope that people will like my take on the whole male pregnancy aspect, as well as keep in mind that we have no way of knowing how alien races might have evolved, so before you dismiss it entirely, just consider that maybe there are beings out there who can do what Kit does.
If you have never read a male pregnancy story before, perhaps you will consider giving this one a chance. And if you already enjoy the genre, I am keeping my fingers crossed that there is room out there for a new type of MPreg story.
