Max and his alien husband ‘Rick’ have settled into a domestic life aboard Rick's space ship. Max does most of the work raising the three children he bore for Rick. Rick's species usually doesn't get involved much with child rearing, but Max wants to be involved, and all three offspring seem to be the better for it. They've been spending their time in the sparsely populated region of space not far from Earth, but as the story opens their supplies are running low, so it's time to return to the more populated areas to try and sell something that will give them enough credit to restock their ship.

Max is a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force, sent to engage alien ships that seems to be invading Earth. His plane takes a hit and the next thing Max knows, he’s waking up aboard a space ship full of strange creatures from other worlds. The aliens have no interest in Max and drop him off at a planet used as a trading center far from home. He will need to find a way to pay for the long trip back to Earth, and it seems the highest paying job available is to be the nanny for a tentacled alien’s kids.
In the not-too-distant future, even traditionally heterosexually dominated places like the police force don’t tolerate even the appearance of discrimination based on sexual identity, and the BDSM community is almost as open and accepted as the LGBT community. However, the kink world has a dark side. “Shade” dominants and submissives don’t like to play by the rules. In their underground shade clubs, limits aren’t negotiated and there are no safewords.
