Jameelah was always prepared to die for her cause. Now, unless her plan to gain the attention of the Triden Emperor succeeds, she may have to kill for it as well. But peace has one last chance. She plants a smoke bomb at the royal wedding reception. After the explosion, Jameelah is betrayed by one of her own, and finds herself stranded in a runaway escape pod. She is not alone. One of the party goers lies bruised and bloodied at her feet. Jameelah knows Alec is a Triden officer, ruthless minion to an evil Emperor. Alec knows Jameelah is an Imsada terrorist, a threat to everything he loves. But Jameelah isn't just any terrorist--she is the one person her people will follow on their road to peace. And Alec isnt just any Triden lieutenant--he is the Emperor's only brother and heir to the throne.

Editorial Reviews

Affaire de Coeur
Christine W. Murphy provides a richly fashioned futuristic society...Readers will not be able to put down this book until the last page is turned!
AOL Reviewer Board
Christine W. Murphy has written a book filled with incredible description and romance. She has brought to life a new world. In the end, your choice should be: should you buy this book today or tomorrow?
Science Fiction Romance
For the Emperor is a futuristic, a love story set in a real and compelling universe, peopled with believable humans whose main problem is that they must do what is right when the situation has made the consequences virtually unbearable. It reminded me of a science fiction Casablanca.
Thomas Myer
This book contains some delicious passages of sexual tension. The characters are well-drawn, and the plot skips along at a good pace. There is always a sense of something bigger: the fates of peoples, empires, and ways of life hover over the minds of characters fighting their own personal battles and bugbears.
