Justin Nesbit, soldier turned prospector, crash lands on a planet in a star system that doesn't exist on any map. He's taken prisoner by the natives, and finds himself thrust into a strange new culture, a strange new language ... and strange new feelings. From the start, Sajah, the alien leading the natives, is intensely interested in him.
Sajah is a big and strange alien, unlike anyone Justin has ever encountered in his life. Fumbling through cultural and language barriers, they become friends. But one crucial moment of misunderstanding changes Justin's entire situation and leads him down a path to a choice he never imagined in his wildest dreams.

WOW! This is the first story I’ve read by TA Creech and after reading Captive, it won’t be my last! I loved the descriptive storytelling ability this author has and I was immediately wrapped up into these characters lives. The world-building the author created for this science fiction romance was great and I enjoyed watching Justin and Sajah’s relationship develop. For a short story it is pretty well-written and balanced…selfishly I wish it had been longer…I loved it!
