Fan the Embers
by Cynthia Kimball
Hugh MacGivens came to Figor to visit his parents. Turns out, he's offered up as an ally for the Figor/Earth alliance and has to mate with a local. A genderless local. In the meantime, Figor is independent and seclusionary. They want nothing to do with offworlders. Hugh came to Figor for a few months and possibly the rest of his life. If they have their say, his life ends now.
