In the introduction Allie Ritch writes: This is one for all the people who have ever struggled to fit in. It describes the main male character Koll well as he's a bear of a man towering over all others in his small village, but despite his stature he has a centre soft like that of a teddy bear.
His size intimidates the men and women around him, making it near impossible for him to find a mate and not just out of his village but also in the villages around his. On his way back from another failed visit to a neighbouring village he encounter an exhausted woman in the middle of the wilderness and takes her home with him to recover, but who is she and what were she doing there?

The Mating Season is an Erotic Sci-Fi book taking place on the frozen and inhospitable planet Jensen. The warmth in the story comes from the characters and their bonds.

What impressed me the most with the story is the strength of the female main character Shila that doesn't fold to the strength of Koll, but even challenge it and in particular during the sex scenes show her own hunger and initiative. It's refreshing to find a story that embraces and affirms the female sexuality. In most other erotic stories with a strong female she falls on her back and spreads her legs as soon as it comes to sex, but not here. in Mating Season they face each other on equal terms.

I would have liked to have seen the suspense/action part of the story expanded to a more full story, but understand that the scope was reduced to fit in with the short story format.
