About the Book



"Royal Consortium princess Ada von Hasenberg fled home to avoid an arranged marriage to the scion of a rival house. After two years moving between space ports to avoid her father's minions, Ada is captured by mercenaries intent on collecting a vast bounty. She puts up quite a fight and is summarily thrown into a cell with Marcus Loch, the other most wanted individual in the universe. Ada is intrigued by him but learned from an early age never to trust anyone, not even family, and certainly not a rogue soldier convicted of mass murder. When her rejected suitor suddenly shows up with a warship to escort her home, Ada wonders why but knows she must escape immediately. Her best hope is to free Marcus and draw him into her plans"--Publisher's description.



Book Synopsis



"Polaris Rising is space opera at its best, intense and addictive, a story of honor, courage, betrayal, and love. Jessie Mihalik is an author to watch."--Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author

A space princess on the run and a notorious outlaw soldier become unlikely allies in this imaginative, sexy space opera adventure--the first in an exciting science fiction trilogy.

In the far distant future, the universe is officially ruled by the Royal Consortium, but the High Councillors, the heads of the three High Houses, wield the true power. As the fifth of six children, Ada von Hasenberg has no authority; her only value to her High House is as a pawn in a political marriage. When her father arranges for her to wed a noble from House Rockhurst, a man she neither wants nor loves, Ada seizes control of her own destiny. The spirited princess flees before the betrothal ceremony and disappears among the stars.

Ada eluded her father's forces for two years, but now her luck has run out. To ensure she cannot escape again, the fiery princess is thrown into a prison cell with Marcus Loch. Known as the Devil of Fornax Zero, Loch is rumored to have killed his entire chain of command during the Fornax Rebellion, and the Consortium wants his head.

When the ship returning them to Earth is attacked by a battle cruiser from rival House Rockhurst, Ada realizes that if her jilted fiancé captures her, she'll become a political prisoner and a liability to her House. Her only hope is to strike a deal with the dangerous fugitive: a fortune if he helps her escape.

But when you make a deal with an irresistibly attractive Devil, you may lose more than you bargained for . . .
