As the second-in-command of Olympus Station, Captain Hadley Wells is usually too focused on her career to worry about romance. That changes with the arrival of Prince Nykal of Jroj, a planet that’s recently joined the Coalition. Their attraction is immediate and fierce, but too many rules separate them to let them have more than one stolen night. The night is amazing, but has far-reaching consequences. Add in the ambassador determined to keep Nykal from her by any means, and it’s a complicated mess that needs a solution before the secret she carries is visible to all.
