From New York Times bestselling author Erin Kellison, Gold Like the Sun is the second book in the exciting and passionate adventures of the Sol sisters.
It's the wedding of the millennium! Princess Pilar Sol and Hakan Frust are celebrating their union with sector fetes full of celebrity and pomp. Theirs is an arranged marriage to preserve the vital commerce of the Nyer Transit Hub, and yet Pilar is madly, unreservedly, passionately in love. She has all the excitement she has long dreamed of—and a little more than she bargained for when she discovers that Hakan's grasping family wants her dead.
Hakan has done everything in his power to save his inheritance—the bustling but impoverished Hub—including marrying a wealthy princess for her dowry. His heart isn't supposed to be part of the deal, but Pilar has all the beauty and joy his life lacks. When Hakan runs afoul of his uncle's associates—criminal in nature, violent in approach—he refuses to risk Pilar, not for money, not even for his life.
But Pilar is not so easily cast aside, and negotiations turn into a gamble with the future of the sector in the balance. Hakan is about to learn about the high stakes his bride will hazard, as he now has far more to lose—and win—than he ever believed possible: a future brighter than gold.

A Fun, Fast paced Read
“Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review”
This is the second book in Erin Kellison's Sol Series. This book continues with the story of the younger sister from the first book, Pilar, who was getting married in the first one. Her and her new husband Hakan have gone to his home world to continue the celebration and marriage ceremony with his people but unlike Sol where Pilar's family welcomed the union Hakan's family starts off by sending an assassin!
I actually enjoyed this book more than the first one. I felt like the author fleshed out the characters a little more than the first one. Pilar was really a surprise! I loved the way she actually ends up being the heroine and not the victim! The action is non-stop, which makes it a fun read. I had one of the same problems with this one as the first one, the terminology of their worlds could have been explained a little more clearly. Most of the time the reader can figure out what the author was trying to say but sometimes I was totally lost about what they were saying or describing.
I highly recommend this entire series to anyone who enjoys imaginative, fast-paced, action-packed romances!
Out of this world
Books 2 is great shows how strong and determined Pilar is to stand on her own and fight for her husband and what she wants. Even after being drugged and put on transport home. Hakan finds himself with only one good hand trying to fight for his rights and save his bride. Little did he know she was fighting also. Between his family and the Black Orchid they were in for the fight of there lives loved this story
Another good read
ARC book provided by publisher for honest review. I have enjoyed both books in this series, this was the second book and Ms. Kellison did not disappoint. Well worth the time spent.
