"Excellent science fiction romance"
A Vash Prince, Rom B'kah "adopted" the twin teenage
children (Ian and Ilana) of his beloved Jas as his own.
Rom stuns the Vash nobility when he names the outsider Ian
has his heir as king of the Vash Nadah Trade Federation as
he sees leadership qualities and honor in the lad. Rom
also knows that Ian would link the Vash Federation to the
frontier that includes the youngster's home planet of
Led by U.S. Senator Randall and his "Earth First"
campaign, Earth seems posed to reject the Federation offer
of an alliance. Ian needs to know why Randall is so
opposed. His trek into the outer space frontier proves
dangerous and he soon finds himself without a pilot. He
hires Rom's niece, Princess Tee'ah Dar, though he has no
idea who she really is, to fly him in search of Randall.
As they learn how dismal life in this sector is, Tee'ah and
Ian fall in love, but both hid their real identity from the
other. A permanent relationship seems remote, as the bond
between them was not started with trust.
THE STAR PRINCE, Susan Grant's latest science
romance, soars to the stars with a strong story line and
deep characters that are easy to like and admire. The
exciting plot makes life in outer space seems real. Ian is
a great character balancing his heritage with the Vash
honor system. Tee'ah is an intrepid heroine who is not
afraid to try anything even when her peers condemn her. As
with STAR KING, Ms. Grant takes the science fiction and
romance genres on a ride not often seen by readers.
