Maybe with him, I can work through my fears of the past….

Mission to Majundar by Veronica Scott


An attempted assassination left Princess Shalira blind as a child and, now that she’s of marriageable age, she’s resigned herself to an arranged marriage rather than face life under the thumb of her cold stepmother. But then she meets Mike Varone, who saves Shalira from another assassination attempt. When she arranges for him to escort her across the planet to her future husband, she’s already falling hard for the deadly offworlder. She knows she should deny herself the temptation he represents, but taking Mike along to protect her is the only way she’ll live long enough to escape her ruthless stepmother.

Mike has other business he should be focused on, but when what should have been an easy trek  turns into an ambush with danger around every turn, Shalira’s marriage begins to seem less like an arranged union and more like yet another planned assassination. The more they work together to survive, the harder it becomes to stop themselves from falling in love. Caught in a race against time, can they escape the hostile forces hunting them and make it off the planet?
