Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Estep blasts off with an exciting new science-fiction fantasy adventure with a dash of historical romance. This action-packed space opera features a mix of magic and technology, along with a soul mates and enemies-to-lovers story. Perfect for fans of Star Wars, Bridgerton, and Pride and Prejudice.

A WOMAN WHO SEES EVERYTHING . . .

Few people know the name Vesper Quill. To most folks, I’m just a lowly lab rat who designs brewmakers and other household appliances in the research and development lab at the powerful Kent Corp. But when I point out a design flaw and a safety hazard in the new line of Kent Corp spaceships, everyone knows who I am—and wants to eliminate me.

I might be a seer with a photographic memory, but I don’t see the trouble headed my way until it’s too late. Suddenly, I’m surrounded by enemies and fighting for my life.

I don’t think things can get any worse until I meet Kyrion Caldaren, an arrogant Regal lord who insists that we have a connection, one that could be the death of us both.

A MAN WHO CAN’T FORGET HIS PAST . . .

The name Kyrion Caldaren strikes fear in the hearts of people across the Archipelago Galaxy. As the leader of the Arrows, the Imperium’s elite fighting force, I’m used to being a villain, as well as the personal assassin of Lord Callus Holloway. Even the wealthy Regals who live on the planet of Corios are afraid of me.

But everything changes when I meet Vesper Quill. I might be a powerful psion with telepathic, telekinetic, and other abilities, but Vesper sees far too many of my secrets.

Thanks to an arcane, unwanted quirk of psionic magic, the two of us are forced to work together to unravel a dangerous conspiracy and outwit the deadly enemies who want to bend us to their will.

An Outstanding SciFi Romantic Adventure

Vesper and Kyrion both at completely opposite ends of the status quo build a tenuous relationship because of an unwelcome and unwanted bond. Amidst fear of death they cannot break this magical force which puts both their lives at risk from someone with unspeakable evil power Kyrion (and eventually Vesper) cannot avoid.

Vesper proves, however, what she may lack in magicka she more than makes up for in intelligence dealing with both her own and Kyrion’s scarred past and both present and future danger. The first part of this series leaves me craving for more!

Jennifer Estep’s writing is simply incredible. I’m doing some writing myself but could never hope to ever be anywhere close to her in skill. I will always be a fan of her work. If you haven’t read Only Bad Options, you are missing out on an incredibly entertaining science fiction experience…

Only Bad Options

Unlike many current science fiction novels, this story is not just about sex and violence. Instead it combines a character study of a flawed heroine who while striving to understand herself becomes a stronger woman who grows into a powerful role. There is a romance with a complexity to it that makes it very believable. The story around her builds until the ending and promises further intrigue.

A great read!

I had heard quite the buzz about Only Bad Options and had to give it a read. At the start, I was interested but not hooked. Vesper was a character that I had to come to like, she wasn't exactly likable when first met, in my opinion. What really drew me to her was that she had nothing going right for her and despite that she kept her head about her. Love that in a character!

Overall, this story was very satisfying in that there were some surprises in store for the reader. There were also parts that were a far gone conclusion but still enjoyable. What really made me love this story, at the conclusion, was Vesper. She surprised me at the very end and I can't wait to see where things go with her.
