Review: The Captain’s Pet (Alien Slave Masters #1) by Samantha Cayto

When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.

In a not-too-distant future, a lopsided war has led to aliens invading and occupying an Earth settlement. Wid is a young colonist who has been caught harassing the aliens. He and his friends are rounded up and sent to an alien warship patrolling the disputed space. His fate is to serve as a sex slave for the ship’s imposing captain. Wid, at first, fights against his enslavement, but soon learns that not only does he stand no chance against the much larger and stronger captain, he isn’t sure he even wants to.

Like all Travian males, Kell is bound by duty to defend his people. Having risen to the rank of captain, he nevertheless chafes against the boring and endless patrol of the space invaded by the humans. His misses his family and constantly guards against his scheming first officer. He sees his reward of a human sex slave as more of a nuisance. Yet the pretty, fair-haired human’s exotic allure is hard to resist. He finds far more pleasure in the use of his pet than he would like.

Kept naked and leashed, Wid’s days are filled with boredom, while his nights wrapped in Kell’s arms turn from fear into pleasure. Even as the humans plot their escape, Wid and Kell form a bond and their growing affection cannot be ignored. When tensions boil over among the aliens, Wid and his friends may be Kell and his crew’s only chance for survival.

Reader Advisory: This book contains sex scenes of both non-consensual and dubious consent, as well as scenes of violence, abuse and torture.

The Captain's Pet

After reading several full length romance novels in a row I was looking for something quick and dirty for my next read. The Captain’s Pet by Samantha Cayto worked perfectly with that in mind. This erotic futuristic sci fi takes readers to a faraway planet in that humans have fled to when Earth has reached its limits on sustaining life. Humans have attempted to colonize New World Colony Seven. The attempt is being halted by the Travian’s claiming that Barantho actually belongs to them. The Travian’s simply want the invaders to vacate their planet.

There are varying sides to how the humans and Travian’s end up together. The human young men were caught vandalizing one of the occupying forces buildings. They are captured by the Travian security force and thus punished. The High Command has gifted their soldiers with human pets. While the humans are used to punishment being handed down in a very different manner, the Travian’s cannot insult High Command by denying their gifts.

Kell and Wid are the main couple of this installment of the Alien Slave Masters series. Kell is captain of the Travian vessel. He has a certain image to uphold. The human pet that is Wid is initially seen as an inconvenience that is added to his many duties. Wid just wants to go home to his family. He soon sees that less brutality for him and the other pets is something they are all willing to quickly settle for. Not knowing how long the punishment will last the human captives band together to help each other in all ways possible. There is a strong them vs us camaraderie among the human captives.

Readers should note that this is not your typical erotic sci fi romance. Kell and Wid’s couplings go from rape, to dubious consent, to seduction for means to an end, to completely consentual. There is plenty of violence to go around for all. All of this takes them to a world specific quasi happy place. It all works together for this very specific world. While oftentimes it’s not pretty it all flows with the story being presented.

Totally Bound blog tour for Samantha Cayto’s The Captain’s Pet, book one in the Alien Slave Masters Series

I have a portrait of my great, great grandmother that I inherited from my great uncle years ago. I walk by it every day and I am as fascinated by it as I’ve always been since childhood. It was taken when she was a new bride, or so the family lore says, back in the middle eighteen hundreds. I know a lot about her story – how many children she had (16, sheesh!) and the fact that she died before all of them had grown up. One of her daughters gave birth to my grandmother, who had my mother, who had me. I look at this woman and marvel that she had no idea that eventually her line would someday include me and my children. I doubt she would approve of my writing career, but what do I know? Perhaps she had a secret longing to write naughty stories, too. I wish I could have known her and I wish she could have known me.

All of this makes me wonder who and what my descendants will be in a hundred or so years from now. I wish I could stick around to see. Maybe there will be some medical breakthrough that will allow it, but I’m not counting on it. One of the things I hope for my descendants is that they will be able to travel in space. Not to the moon or even Mars. Somewhere farther out where other beings may exist. I would so love to go myself, assuming I could get past my acrophobia, claustrophobia and general inclination toward motion sickness! Perhaps space travel is not for me. Still, I hate the idea that I may never know if we’re all alone in this universe. I hate not knowing if ours is the only universe. There are so many possibilities and I’ve always had a fascination for outer space.

When humans do venture out to other planets, though, I do hope it’s because they want to and not because they have to. I don’t want our race to be forced to find a new home, although as a writer, I appreciate how compelling that kind of storyline can be. People have always had a certain fascination for dystopian futures and I’m no different. Perfect futures without need or conflict don’t make for an interesting story. In my new Alien Slave Masters series, humans have been forced into space. They’ve colonized planets because Earth can’t support all of them anymore. A new frontier is their only hope. Too bad they didn’t realize until it was too late that they are not alone. The Travian race has made itself known and they are more technologically advanced than the humans are. That, of course, is always the worry. Any race that finds us first will be more powerful. Let’s hope they are also friendly.

Alien Slave Masters

Excerpt from The Captain’s Pet:

He lay boneless against the bedding, panting harshly to the alien’s thrusting and forced his mind to think of other things. He pictured his family’s new home on Seven as it had been when they’d first arrived. His parents had put them on the list to colonize early on after the wormhole had been explored and the habitable planets had been discovered. But lots of people wanted off Earth, so they hadn’t been called until Seven. His parents had been so enthusiastic and hopeful that it had been infectious.

Even though Wid had hated leaving his old Earth life and friends because he’d been too young to realize how bad things were, he’d marveled at the clean air and open spaces that greeted them. Suddenly the wormhole technology taking a year of Wid’s life to travel in stasis didn’t matter. He’d run around, laughing and screaming with delight along with his sisters and the other kids. Everything had been new and beautiful but in a functional way that addressed the difficulty they’d face with their frontier lives. Living on Seven gave them a brighter future, but they were forced to build that future with hard work that never seemed to let up.

Still, his life on Seven had been happy. Until the Travians had come and spoiled it all by

claiming the humans were invading their space, that somehow an uninhabited planet was actually theirs. The aliens had insisted that the humans abandon their colony. Earth had insisted that the colony stay there and fight back. Wid’s own parents had been on board with the effort. The ‘war’ had ended almost before it began, the Travians being that much more advanced. It took little effort for them to subdue the humans, the same as it took nothing for this alien to overpower Wid.
