Publisher Description

Their passion may be hot, their will strong, but how can she fall for the man who might be trying to kill her?

A princess expected to uphold honor and tradition, a man dishonored and shunned by the very society she rules. Their passion may be hot, their will strong, but how can she fall for the man who might be trying to kill her?

When her life is threatened by mysterious events only she can see, Princess Fen has more to worry about than finding a husband. Too bad her parents don’t feel the same way. Desperate to keep her from leaving the planet like her sister, they decide to play matchmaker, inviting wealthy, noble suitors to the palace.

But it’s not a rich suitor who catches her eye, it’s the commoner, Aaron Piers—a man who’s past is clouded with dishonor, a man without family, a man she could never consider marrying. Though her desire for him burns hot, their relationship can never be. Besides, he might just be the one trying to kill her.

The princess finds love

Aaron was disowned by his grandmother in a fit of anger after his parents died. Fen was a princess expected to marry a nobleman but fell for Aaron. They knew they would not be able to be together but couldn’t stay away from each other. Fen must decide if she can forget her duties and go against her mom to have love. Michelle M. Pillow always writes books that I can’t put down.

Maybe not your typical sci-fi but a lovely read

In this Asian inspired tale of instant attraction and forbidden love Fen’s ghostly Ancestors prove their worth and add many chuckles. While the storyline follows Princess Fen being pressured into marriage by her mother, the Empress also wants Fen to marry a Lintianese of noble birth which opens up the biases often found in so many cultures. Aaron however is neither full blooded Lintianese or noble, but he is totally honorable and gorgeous. As Fen and Aaron navigate this impossible romance we also get a bit of suspense and a mysterious baddie along with so many feels. Great read!

With the suitors everywhere in the palace and the Empresses wishes for Princess Fen to marry a noble, and unforeseeable little accidents that Princess Fen keeps getting herself into…Princess Fen and Aaron may not be able to even spend time with each other.

Michelle is one of my favorite authors of all time. I started being interested in reading books during my early years in college to escape the stressfulness of college and I have always found solitude and serenity when I am reading Michelle’s book. Each book and each series just get better and better. I love the originality and the fantasy. I enjoyed this book so much! I can’t wait to see the rest of the Zhang dynasty.
