People of the Sky
"People of the Sky" by Clare Bell

You can find this one on Amazon. It's actually a good story as a whole, or at least I think so. There is a kind of symbiotic relationship with an alien arthropod a group of colonists develop to their mutual benefit. One of the facets of that relationship is that the alien bugs (they are actually beautiful, like butterflies) need to lay their eggs inside a host in order for their offspring to live until they are mature enough to emerge. The host lives unharmed, male or female just carry the alien offspring voluntarily as if they were their own babies.

The main protagonist stumbles into their hidden colony by accident and makes a lot of mistakes she eventually has to rectify. Even forges her own tight bond with one of the sentient beings for a time.
