Tanner has been a slave his entire life, and spent many years as a pleasure slave. He barely knows freedom, but when he and other escapees hitch a ride on a ship famous for smuggling, he thinks he has an idea when he is immediately attracted to the two men who took him in, alpha wolf Mikael and shark shifter Thorvald. But it was the sharks that imprisoned him, and Tanner is coming to terms with being attracted to a shark at all, in addition to interloping in their relationship. Thorvald is nothing like the slavers of his home planet, and though he and Mikael are mated to each other, they recognize an addition to their mating in Tanner right away. Now it's just a matter of showing Tanner that he is welcome, and his lust is nothing to be ashamed of. Pleasure can be a good thing, and they have every intention of proving it to him.
