I read this book around 10 years ago. It is about a man who is abducted by aliens while on a boat in the middle of the ocean. He becomes a slave and then a mercenary for the said aliens.

Another thing I remember is that the other character was a human-like looking alien woman that the main character falls in love with

Another scene I remember from the first chapter or so is when he wakes up he is shocked as he is in a cell with group of different aliens and he can understand them as had an operation and speech translator inserted in his throat.

    This is pretty vague. Can you remember any more details about the characters, what kind of aliens they were, any specific things they said or did?

    I know its vague but that's is what I remember as it was long time ago. Other thing I remember is that the other character was a human like looking alien woman that the main character falls in live with (I know typical). Other scene I remember from the first chapter or so is when he wakes up he is shocked as he is in a cell with group of different aliens and he can understand them as had an operation and speech translator inserted in his throat. That is all I am afraid Richard!

I think the book you are looking for is "Hunters of the Red Moon" by "Marion Zimmer Bradley" and her brother "Paul Edwin Zimmer" . The "Hero" is Dane Marsh and is kidnapped off of his boat .The kidnappers are the feline "Mekhar" and they are slavers ,as mentioned they install a translator in he's throat .He and others are sold to the "Hunters" an unseen race ,the slaves are formed into groups and allowed to train . They are then taken to the Red Moon and are hunted. Hope this helps ,as a side note there is also a sequel called "The Survivors" Happy Hunting
