  • Review: Game on Askole Coletti Warlords, #7

    I love the Coletti series and devour them immediately upon receipt. This was no exception but I must admit I struggled with the tentacle issue. I liked Tihar in "Vexing Voss" and there was some foreshadowing in that book. Once I kind of erased his less...

  • Review: The Reluctant Queen The Queens of Renthia, #2

    I didn't know what to except when I went into “The Reluctant Queen”. You guys know that for the most part I don't read book synopsis. I just dive right into the story. Especially when its books to series that I die hard loved. This one was one of those....

  • Review: Red Sister Book of the Ancestor, #1

    "Red Sister" is the first book in a new series by Mark Lawrence. I honestly don't have a lot to say about this book. The premise sounds very interesting and unique. However, in execution I find the book to be very slow. So slow in fact that I could not...

  • Review: The Man of Legends

    "The Man of Legends", by Kenneth Johnson, is nothing less than phenomenal. Will, who goes by many other names throughout time, is a fascinating character. It boggles the mind to think of everything he has and will see during his existence. I enjoyed the...

  • Review: Shattered Spear The Lost Stars

  • Review: Dragon Unleashed Dragon Point Book 3

    I loved this fast paced story that had a narcissistic snob as a hero. And he's not your average hero, he's a dragon and that so makes everything alright. Tomas was an absolute delight in his dry wit and sarcasm ready to flay whoever got in his path. As...

Pursued by the Imperial Prince by Mina Carter


On the run… Hunted… by the man she once gave her heart to.

Outlawed noblewoman Jaida’s been everything from a high speed courier on Arcalis Prime to a waitress in the cloud café’s on Selenis. Different careers, different names, different identities. When a cover got easy–so easy she started to believe it herself–she knew she’d been in the same place too long and it was time to move on. Before she got comfortable and started to make mistakes. Mistakes would allow Imperial Prince Seth to find her, and if that happened, people would die…

But after five years, Seth has found her, and she can no longer outrun her destiny: she’ll be the prince’s courtesan, but he’ll never own her heart…

He wanted the one woman he couldn’t have…

Five years ago he thought he’d found his princess, the woman he wanted to be his bride and rule alongside him. But instead of accepting his betrothal bracelet, she refused him and ran. Unable to let the insult lie, he’s chased her ever since. Now he finally has her, captured while working on the docks and he can finally get his revenge on the woman who spurned him. The woman he can’t get out of his head. He’ll make her his courtesan and get her out of his system for good…

But all is not as it seems, and the truth he thought he knew turns out to be a lie. When Jaida’s life is threatened by a hidden enemy, can Seth see through the lies in time to save her… or will he lose everything to deceit?
