Protector:A Scifi Alien Romance

By:Anna Hackett

he leaped into the air and decapitated it with one wild slash. He landed, skidding through the sand, then attacked the damaged dummy again with violent hits and thrusts of his sword, completely destroying it.

No more dummies sprung out of the ground. He stood there, chest heaving. The anger inside him was like a beast—wild and hungry, and out of control.

In that moment, even though sunshine from the two large suns in the sky warmed his skin and a brisk breeze ruffled his too-long dark hair, he was back in the bowels of the underground fight ring that had been his life for several months.

Images peppered his head like a movie on fast forward. All of them were the faces of the people he’d killed.

Blaine sucked in a deep breath, bringing himself back to reality. Even though he was free, the ghosts didn’t seem to stop haunting him.

He looked around and reminded himself that he was standing in the House of Galen training arena. He stared at the new gladiator recruits training on the sand not far away, and then over the training arena to the walls of the main Kor Magna Arena adjacent. It was made of a warm, cream stone and was a mecca for spectators coming to watch the alien gladiators fight. But unlike the hell of the underground fight rings, no one battled to the death.

He flicked his gaze to the right and saw the tips of the spires of the glitzy buildings in the District. It made him think of a long-ago trip to Las Vegas when he’d been younger. The desert planet of Carthago and the city of Kor Magna offered all kinds of spectacles and entertainment.

Blaine shook his head. He was a long way from Earth and his life before. His previous job had been as a space marine turned security specialist for the Fortuna Space Station orbiting Jupiter. But that was all long gone.

He’d been abducted by Thraxian slavers and after months of captivity, sold into the fight rings run by the Srinar aliens. Forced to fight and kill.

He pulled in a shuddering breath, unable to rid himself of the drowning sensation dragging at him.

Then he heard a laugh—full-throated and feminine.

He looked up, his gaze zeroing in on the long, tall form of Saff Essikani.

The female gladiator was walking into the training arena, her back straight, and her muscled, athletic body clad in dark leather. Her leather top hugged her slim torso lovingly and left her muscular arms bare. Her long black hair was in tiny braids that she’d caught back at the base of her neck. Her skin was dark and glossy.

Blaine heard his heart beat like a drum in his ears. It was clear she was strong and an experienced fighter, but he also spotted the small touches of femininity. The elegant tilt of her dark eyes, her long eyelashes, and her long, slender neck.

It took him a second to realize she wasn’t alone. Harper Adams strode beside her. Harper had been Blaine’s fellow security specialist on the space station. She’d been the first to be rescued and taken in by the gladiators of the House of Galen. She’d in turn helped to rescue several other human women who’d also been abducted. He wondered if there were any others they didn’t know about out there somewhere, suffering.

Anger threatened, nipping at the edges of his consciousness. To fight it back, he focused on Saff.
