I'm blown away by this Erotic FemDom Space Opera!

I adore fantasy worlds, and the universe created by Kayla Stonor did not disappoint! This whole story was beautifully written with the perfect amount of detail... I felt completely immersed in this Sci-Fi universe without being drowned in superfluous information.

Action, suspense, violence, space travel, alien domination, & romance...

I love a good bit of kink in my erotic fiction - In any D/s story, I prefer a strong-minded sub, so watching Sonil
This is my second time reading this book. The first was four years ago. In all that time, I kept thinking about this story. I finally reread it and I'm changing my rating from four to five stars. I'm also adding it to my favorites shelf because a story that stays with you for that many years is special.

Funny enough, I didn't feel like there were any plot holes this time around. I can't remember what it was four years ago. I still want to read more books from this collection. This particular one

Now this is a book which is filled with hot domination and alien lifeforms. Jaden is a 30 something General of what used to be the United States. 30 is young, but since the world has been decimated by the Qui, it's more plausible. Jaden is a strong man who's always in command. The leaders of Earth trust him and rely on his strategy. No one is more surprised than Jaden when the Qui offer to give Earth independence if Jaden surrenders himself. The term surrender here is loosely used. Basically, Ja ...more

*****Warning---plot spoilers*****

The description of this novel pulled me in, so I decided to go for it. Once I started reading I could hardly stop. Our hero Jaden is in a really bad spot. Being a guy reading this stuff, it got really intense for me. It would be very difficult for any man to survive/withstand the things that happen to Jaden in the course of his enslavement-domination.

Jaden is not a punk to submit lightly, especially considering his master-torturer Sonil is a member of the ruling

Phenomenal. Those of you who enjoy non/dub-consent, harsh punishment, and the breaking of a person without losing personality and identity will love this. Jaden is an exceptionally strong character - alpha male and then some. Sonil, who is training him for the Qui, is relentless. The torture is graphic and heavy so if that bothers you stand back now. I loved the SciFi aspects and they don't overwhelm the story. Jaden is not a submissive - so this is not a story where the submissive suddenly come ...more

General Jaden, by nature a dominant male, is betrayed by his President and handed over to the Qui as a bribe to save Earth from decimation. Sonil the Qui leader wants Jaden as her submissive consort, to willingly make love to her and obey. She is one mean lizard-like lady who hates lies with a passion and expects instant obedience. If this doesn't happen punishment is swift and cruel. Due to his dominant nature, submission does not come easy and Jaden is tortured quite mercilessly when he refus ...more

For the last thirty years, Earth's population has been decimated and terrorized by the K'lahn, members of a reptilian race belonging to the powerful Qui empire.

As a child, Trey Jaden witnessed his parents die at the hands of the savage K'lahn and vowed he'd make them pay. Now in his thirties, he's risen to the rank of a three star general. His prowess on the battlefield is a thorn in the eye of the ruling Qui imperial family; a shapeshifting race who rules hundreds of worlds.

Wow this story blew me away, I’m really not sure where to start. It wasn’t what I expected, not that I am entirely sure what that was. Well, I originally put my hand up to read to review when I noticed it tagged as ‘femdom’! The heroine was definitely a kick-ass strong female/alien but I would not class her as a ‘domme’ per say.

That out of the way, this story was wonderfully written; the world and character building magnificent, I could literally see the story unfold before my eyes.

I enjoyed this sci-if story more than I thought I would.
Jaden's a dominant male general is offered by U.S. Government, or sold out, to a ruling galactic house of the Qui. Their Ambassador Sonil has sequestered Jaden as part of her treaty to avoid war and destruction of planet Earth. Jaden has been 'bought' to be trained as absolute submissive consort to the Qui. How does a dominant man, a general who hates the K'lan and Qui end up submitting through some terrible times of discipline, bondage an

I loved this book. I am not normally interested in male submission as I love my alpha males but the author manages to keep General Jaden's alpha intact even when he is reluctantly bending to the will of the alien Ambassador.

The training scenes in this story are well done and creative. I was totally caught up in how far Sonil could push Jaden without breaking him. I thought is was a nice balance here between his submission and strength of will. AND I always love stories that surprise me with a tw

Ahem ... is it hot in here? I read this story based on a recommendation from a reviewer that I trust. I'm so glad I did! Let me first say that I don't usually read F/m, as I find the rampant humiliation and sissyfication stuff typically found in this sub-genre just turns me the hell off. (No offense to those who love that though:)

Luckily for me, this story manages to thread the needle so to speak (the male still submits -- utterly -- but he is NOT ground into dust nor treated like a disgusting

I liked this book. I give it a 3.75. Before I read this, I noticed some reviewers shelved it as dub-con and I hoped that wouldn’t bother me. I usually don’t read dub-con books. However, this book did not bother me because the sci-fi elements and the specific plot situation (which I won’t spoil for you) made it all less dub-con.

One of the things I really enjoyed about this book was the plot twists and turns. At times I would relax, thinking I knew where the story was going and suddenly be surpri

I won this book. I chose it from a list of books up for prizes, but I'm not sure I truly understood what this book was about. After seeing the disclaimer at the beginning about torture and non/dub-con, I was worried it was going to be way outside my comfort zone. I generally prefer fluffy reads.

That said, however, I was pleasantly surprised by how good this story was. And while the torture and non/dub-con made me wince a bit, it wasn't too overwhelming for my fluffy brain. I really enjoyed watc

Oh I did love this story. Which has greatly surprised me. I don't normally do aliens and this is the first fandom story I have read, but this was fantastic and exceeded all my expectations.
It starts with an introduction to the characters in the unusual way that they fight each other. The idea being that both hate each other, they are natural enemies because of past circumstances. Both have something to gain out of beating the other. The open hostility towards each other is clear through out th

This is second book in Surrender Series. I didn't think Ms. Stonor could top the previous book boy was I mistaken. Ms. Stonor shows that she knows how to write books on surrender so completely. I didn't think the heat could be ratched to another level yet I was proven wrong time and time again. Here are my thoughts on this exceptional book:

I have to admit--I picked this book up for the cover. The idea of all that power being held submissively was intriguing to me. And that is what the book was about. I love military men, and here was a man making the ultimate sacrifice. This book has quite a twist in the plot that you will not see coming, which is a rare (and pleasant) thing for someone like me that reads a lot of books. I liked that the female character was strong--his equal, even, if not more. And the scene on the cliff was ver ...more

The story, plot line and characters are top notch though this was my first story reading a strong female inflicts severe punishments and physical training to a submissive male against his will. The scenes are hot but the torture and his breaking down was too much for me (to be fair I would not have liked it in a female character either). Not my cup of tea but I did enjoy Kayla's overall style a lot. You really can identify with how Jaden initially fights in his head and then slowly submits. The ...more

Femdom has just gone to a whole new level! Sonil put Jaden through some very painful torture, all in the name of training him to submissively stand by the side of the Qui Queen as a consort of sorts. In exchange the Queen would spare Earth from invasion and destruction. I cringed and gasped many times, but it was not gross and, in fact, as Jaden managed to survive each new trial and punishment for failure, Sonil began to show some caring. It was fascinating to watch the relationship evolve.

I received this book from the author for free in exchange for an honest review.

I have never read anything from this author before but am very happy that I have at this time. I was drawn into the story from the very beginning and started to form a liking for the characters right then. All the characters were very dynamic with strong personalities that made you want to follow and find out what they would do next. The language seems perfect for the world that they inhabit and for the characters. Co

General Jaden comes in as powerful and dominates as any military-alpha-male would. He despises the K'lahn for their hostile infiltration of Earth and the massive amounts of loss, to his own family as well as the entire cities. To find that now, he has to allow an Ambassador to come speak to his President about a trade treaty, has Jaden at this breaking point. But when Sonil lands and they face one another, not only is he awe-struck at this incredible creature, he wants her at the same time he wa ...more

I don't usually read erotica. In fact there are only two writers in the genre that I favour and Ms Stonor is one of them. The difficulty I have is that erotica storylines are usually predictable and hackneyed.

However, this author, while dealing with some pretty strong sexual and violent elements, also tells a good, imaginative tale - this time in a science fiction setting. Also the lady can write!

So if you feel like sampling some fairly heavy stuff, this is an excellent place to start.

This book was a nice change from from what i normally read.
Literally my first femdom romance, and what took me so long? Effectively written, fast-going and straight-forward pulpy fun with some aliens, light torture, d/s and s/m themes. But... I snobbishly crave a little something more than instalust and formula writing these days. I might dip another toe into the femdom genre, although I'd much prefer the F to not be a supernaturally strong alien woman, that can easily overpower her alpha man victim with her supermassive strength and hocus pocus sex phe ...more

Delicious book. At times violent, with some BDSM elements (which I actually like) and always exciting. I wouldn't call the romance sweet, but there is a strong chemistry between the characters and it works. The sci-fi part was great but still need to have some more development. I am looking forward to reading more from Kayla Stonor.

I really liked this book by new-to-me author Kayla Stonor, which surprised me. It is sci-fi erotica/erotic romance which had some elements that may prove to be really intense for some: nonconsensual/dubious consent, femdom, humiliation, rape, very mild bestiality, captivity/slavery, sex with a shapeshifting flying alien, some torture. For me, it was not too bad but I could have used something more; for example, the interrupted m/m sex x 2 (AUTHOR, YOU TEASE! *frustrated and disappoi

I adore FemDom and strong female lead characters, so Under by Treaty by Kayla Stonor sounded like a good bet and landed the spot as my new read. The story was beautifully written with the right amount of detail to give a reader understanding of alien culture(s) encountered. This kind of restraint provided a good connection to the story and characters.

Kayla Stonor is the pen name of an author of dark, edgy, erotic romance featuring alpha males who submit to the women they grow to love.

Kayla's writings are not the usual romantic fluff. Her novels often skate the edge of consent, with thrilling violence and dramatic relationships between powerful alpha males and dominant women.

“Do not presume to judge the Qui, Mr. President. Your society aspires to an ideal that exists only at levels like the United Regions. Analyze your world’s history and you find pockets of feudal life that continue to exist today. Cultures where rape victims are killed so as not to dishonor their family; countries where the male of your species has so little self-control, the female is obliged to hide behind cloth for fear they will tempt them into carnal acts; regions where children are slaughtered for no reason. And this was all before our invasion.” 3 likes
“Lick my feet clean.” Jaden decided he would rather be fucked, despite the blister seeping through his rectum. He wanted to ram his fist through Markl’s smug face – nothing he had imagined came close to this nightmare, not even the punishing aftermath from his lapse of concentration on D’ron. He would rather have pins stuck in his eyeballs, or his innards ripped out than submit to this degradation. He would rather die. Earth could go to hell.” 1 likes
