Alternate universe where Alfor is still alive but ailing badly. A rare but valuable mineral has been discovered in recent years on planet Arus, and everyone wants it. Including Doom and Demos. On the brink of war and invasion, Allura is about to return from a secret diplomatic mission, having procured a promise for help from another world. However before she can reach Arus, the ship she is on is attacked by Drule pirates led by Prince Lotor.
Not knowing who the other is, Allura captures Lotor’s interest in more ways than one. Can she escape and make it back to Arus in time? And will Lotor be content to leave it at that if she does?
Lotor Allura pairing, and Ryder Alexandria pairing.
