Overview

Princess Ra'Nara Lumina, destined for the throne of Cadeia, has fled her privileged life to escape the dark destiny that awaits her. Slated to be bred with her cruel cousin, Cleus Antioch, she can expect most of her children to die of a genetic illness borne in the genes of the royal family. To save her unborn heirs, she leaves the palace, but as long as she remains untouched by a man, she is still eligible to rule. Pursued by the ruthless Chancellor Kossa, who will do anything to see that succession of the throne is unbroken, Ra'Nara must find a man willing to claim her as his wife. Istrian Merchant Captain Ravenstar Bren finds himself with a strange dilemma. To save the princess and the lives of her as-yet-unconceived offspring, he must claim her as his bride, but can he convince the proud people of his nomadic nation to accept a "land-born" as the wife of their sovereign?

Read an Excerpt

The newcomer advanced and Ra'Nara backed up, holding the knife before her in confusion. When her back collided with the hard wooden slats of the crates stacked behind her, she dropped the blade and raised her hands in a gesture of surrender. It was too late for apologies or explanations, however. The pilot advanced on Ra'Nara and kicked away the knife. Then she grabbed the cloak and pulled Ra'Nara forward. In the next instant, she delivered a blow to Ra'Nara's jaw that left her dizzy and weak.

Ra'Nara tried to scrabble away and break the hold on her borrowed garments. As she struggled, the pilot swept Ra'Nara's feet out from under her with an expert kick and the cold, dusty deck came up in a rush. The last thing Ra'Nara saw as the pilot yanked her arms behind her was a collection of booted feet assembled around her head.

"Tie her up! She's dangerous."

"She? I thought it was a boy."

"Is she unconscious?" A male voice asked. "Torri? What did you do?"

"I barely touched her, must have a glass jaw."

"Put her over there. I alerted security. They'll be waiting for us. Isha? You're bleeding."

"It's just a scratch, Kree. I'll be fine."

The voices swirled around Ra'Nara as a number of hands grasped her cloak and used it as a sling to carry her across the deck. Pain lanced through her jaw again as they dropped her in a heap on the floor and darkness closed over her.

Still conscious but barely coherent, Ra'Nara could only think how fortunate she was that the Istrians hadn't decided to dump her out of an airlock. That was a good start to her new life. Now she just had to convince them to take her to another planet before they kicked her off their ship.Then she would finally be free.
