Only one prize matters: his champion’s heart
Dreaming big on a dead-end world… Jemm Aves toils for a mining company by day, but at night she is a successful bajha player, disguised as a male to compete in the violent underworld of the colony’s fight clubs. Every win puts her one small step closer to her goal: saving enough to escape Barésh with her family. When a royal recruits her to be a star player for his team, her ruse proves to be her most perilous game yet when it puts both their lives—and her heart—at risk.
Prince Charming he was not… Prince Klark is eager to reverse his reputation as the black sheep of the Vedla clan. If his bajha team can win the galactic title it would go a long way toward restoring the family honor that his misdeeds tarnished. On Barésh, he tracks down an amateur who has risen to the top of the seedy world of street bajha, offering the commoner a chance of a lifetime: a way off that reeking space rock for good. But his new player comes with a scandalous secret that turns his plans and his beliefs upside down. He sets out to win a very different prize—his champion’s reluctant heart.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
This is a lovely romance! It’s a wonderful sci-fi novel! No magic garbage to clutter up a beautiful story. Susan Grant is a masterful story teller and is one of the most talented writers ever.
Of the several Grant books I have read, this was my favorite. The story was excellent and the romantic elements plot-driven rather than tossed in just to be salacious. The theme of overcoming obstacles to achieve one’s dreams is timeless, and I appreciated the upheld values of integrity, honor and occasionally restraint. Though the happy ending was expected, getting there was an interesting challenge. A fun read!
I haven’t read a book by Susan that I didn’t absolutely enjoy. Her books are consistently well-written, descriptive and thoughtful. There are sensual scenes but they are generally far from the graphic (often vulgar) content found in many books in the genre that lack any meaningful substance.
It’s a tale of an underdog who reaches the top against all odds – including the all-too-real glass ceiling. It’s a book with a heroine that any woman who has dreams of her own can identify with and find herself cheering for. It’s a fun, engrossing read – and I simply couldn’t out it down. Well done, and I can’t wait for the next in this new series!
There is action, excitement galore, love and love of family. This book was so absolute for me, I went back and got Star Princess. I am so glad I bought this book and was told about this author.
