Interspecies relationships can be complicated enough due to different customs and/or expectations, but add a severe speech impediment, different languages, and a variation of ideas about mating and you have a true challenge. I love the fact that all these factors were what made the three men struggle how to relate to each other, not the fact they were gay or trying to be a permanent triad. It all highlighted the fact this fantasy world is definitely very different from our current reality!

Dominick is a Phae, has wings and is able to fly, and works as a security officer. He also suffers from a severe stutter, which means he is somewhat shy, and only uses Drachus sign language to communicate. When two men seem interested in him he cannot believe it at first, but all their attention quickly convinces him they may have something together. The fact he meets them at a six-day mating ceremony means they have some time to start figuring out how to deal with their cultural differences.

Lysander, a Ura, and Zachary, a Ganesh, may be able to speak, but communication is still a hard-won achievement. They are both interested in Dominick, however, their definition of courtship and permanence is slightly different. All of them are fascinating characters, the three of them are hot together, and the world they live in was a delight for me to explore.

If you like fantasy, if you enjoy reading along while trying to figure out the different species and their cultures, and if you're looking for a read that is interesting and slightly quirky as well as hot, then you will probably like this free short story.
