"Once again, Grant delivers on all levels"
Susan Grant is the Queen of "Space Romance". Small
wonder, since the lady is at home in the air, zooming
through the atmosphere, pedal to the metal (do they have
pedals in planes??). That she is at home with themes that
deal with Space and Travel is hardly a surprise. She has
been dazzling her fans with book after book, and this one
is no exception.
Keira is a warrior queen, ruler of the galaxy. Not an
easy job, mind. The lass is beautiful, skilled with all
the tools of a grand warrior, and is lethal--literally--
with plasma swords and knives. Only as with most rulers,
they are forced to walk a lonely road. She was queen from
childhood, rising to the title after her family was killed
in an accident. No family, no friends, she has sealed
herself off emotionally, finding by being alone no one can
hurt her. Only this pesky little planet earth is
threatening hers, so she must step forward to protect her
Fighter pilot Jared Jasper's life changes when he enters a
spaceship. Beam me up Scotty time! He gets connected in
a video with "some sexy lady" and gives her his "pilot
name" (think Top Gun - Maverick, Joker, Iceman etc).
Jared's is the "The Prince"!! He quickly learns revealing
that was a big mistake---maybe. The lady shows up on his
door step, informing him she is the Queen of the Universe
and he must wed her because he is royalty, too! She is
determined they wed to form an alliance between his planet
and her universe and then they can live happily ever
after. After a bumpy courtship, Jared thinks being
consort to the Queen of the Universe might have its
advantages. But accidents begin to happen, just as they
happened to Keira's family. They must unriddle the truth
about her family's death before it's too late.
Once again, Grant delivers on all levels. I read the
first book, so I knew things going in, however, that only
enhanced the pleasure of the Stand-Alone title.
Obviously, on the quality, fun and enjoyment of both these
books, I am looking forward to more in the series!

His fiancee was out of this world. Literally.
Even a Goddess can have a bad day...
Keira, warrior-queen of the galaxy, is as famous for her beauty as she is for avoiding marriage. But when an upstart little planet called Earth threatens her world with its fleet of spaceships, the fate of her people lies in her hands. She must bind herself to a barbarian from the rogue world...or face the destruction of her own!
She's what he never knew he always wanted...
Confirmed bachelor Jared Jasper knew the trick Earth pulled on the alien invaders wasn't a permanent solution. What they needed was a peace treaty. It just never occurred to him that he would wind up on the bargaining table. Playing the pushover groom to a mouthy alien babe who knows how to use a plasma sword is not exactly his idea of fun. But with six-billion people depending on him, he doesn't have much choice--sleep with the enemy...or bring on interstellar war.
Strange bedmates? You bet. But this alliance may turn into a romance the likes of which this galaxy's never seen!
