Ever since he was six and witnessed the destruction of the old Palace, Prince Matthieu Sinclair has honed himself -- mind, body, and spirit -- until he is about as perfect a human being as has ever existed. However, as second in line to the throne, his duties are so extensive that to find a lady worthy of being his Empress someday seems like a hopeless task.
His grandparents Emperor Victor and Empress Felice Sinclair recognize the depth and extent of his talents, asking him to establish the Imperial Protocol Academy for the numerous Imperial grandchildren. He must also take space duty on the ultra-secret prototype courier vessel designed by the stargate scientists. As the socialites circling him begin looking more and more like sharks, Matthieu and his brother Theo look for ways to find ladies who could help them with their demanding lives.
When complications involving the ongoing reparations strategy by the Attican Empire evolve, Matthieu must leave his ladies more than once to oversee critical developments in person. Even Lady Miriel Makov, the one lady he has found who could possibly take up the demanding position of Empress, abandons him in their darkest hour. If he is too busy to find a wife now, how will he ever be able to do so when he is the Emperor?
Most of all, when the going gets tough, the only two truths Matthieu can stand upon are that the Imperial Family's needs come above his own, and no knowledge is worthless. Using his vast array of skills, from piloting to matrixing to boxing off corners of his mind, a technique drilled into him for a deep-cover assignment, Matthieu has to face the dreaded opponent of his childhood: the Attican Empire!

About the Author
After a health crisis forced Eva Caye to re-evaluate her life, she took up her favorite hobby, writing, to find meaning and inspiration once more. Five years of obsessive writing, research, and finding ways to pay for an editor led to thirteen books in the To Be Sinclair series. Eva's current works-in-progress are two prequels set about 100 years in the future. The To Be Sinclair series consists of science fiction romance novels that focus on a future some 600 years from now. In the Sinclair 'universe', humanity has spread to over 100 planets, with all the concomitant travails such as how colonies set up governments, how they travel and trade among the stars, and how they unite, and fight, for power. Yet one of the most important decisions anyone can make is choosing a life-partner; these novels specifically address the personal needs of the main characters, to show how progressive, benevolent rulers struggle to find the love and support of people willing to live with the dangers of being Imperial. Eva lives with her magnificent husband in Louisville, Kentucky.
