A Different World, A Different Kind of Love

                Sacred Bands:                Kobrai the Serpent King

Available Now


Devin has longed to explore the galaxy and see new worlds, but an obscure genetic defect makes it impossible for him to breathe the air of other worlds.  He is relegated to flying surveying runs, mapping those worlds he can never set foot on.  He never expects to crash land on a planet and discover a whole new race.

Kobrai is the leader of the Maji people, a group of shapeshifters who can change into snakes.  He is curious about the possibility of worlds beyond the stars, and when an unconscious alien is brought to him, he is excited to discover his beliefs have foundation.

As Kobrai nurses the injured Devin back to health, they discover a desire that can't be denied.  Both their worlds allow men to come together in passion, but falling for a different species is another thing all together.   Can they push through the fear, doubt and distrust of both their races to find a love that is true?
