Star Hero: A Star Series Novella

Pronoun
1

An imperfect hero battles his inner demons in a race against time to save the woman he loves...

First he had to rescue her. Then he’d try to win her back.

A Marine serving in the galactic frontier, Lieutenant Lukas Frank has a lot in common with a street dog named Bang-Bang; they both started off as scrappy orphans fighting to survive—and beat the odds. Things change when Bang-Bang leads Lukas to starpilot Captain Carlynn Riga. The tough war hero learns what it means to surrender—his heart. Lukas’s struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, threaten to tear the three of them apart, but nothing threatens them more than when Carlynn goes missing in action. Now the rugged, emotionally scarred Marine and his K-9 partner must find Carlynn and bring her home, or risk losing everything he has finally found worth fighting for.

(Expanded from the novella “Stray“, originally published in the Pets in Space 1 Anthology)

“A heart-pounding space adventure!” —Goodreads

“I have never read anything by this author before and I have been missing out. What a wonderful story that kept me reading right to the end. It grips you from the first words” —Goodreads

“Sparks fly when Lucas, the Marine hero, meets Carlynn, the star pilot. A few months later different sparks fly and Lucas learns what it’s like to lose everything he always wanted. Can he find Carlynn and win her back?” —Goodreads

“I am once again spell-bound by Susan’s thoughtful literary approach of bringing into play Bang-Bang to examine the risks associated with an unfolding love story and the way our past history opens as well as cloaks the heart to direct our present and future.” —Goodreads

“Beyond the romance it dealt with the very real issue of PTSD really well, covering not only the person who has it but how it can effect those who love and care for them. I absolutely adored Bang Bang and cant wait to read Puppy’s story.” —Goodreads

A low-born woman willing to risk everything to save her family. A disgraced prince seeking redemption in the eyes of his king and people...


RITA® winner and New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Susan Grant sweeps readers away to exciting new worlds in another romance and action-packed story:


Dreaming big on a dead-end world... Jemm Aves toils for a mining company by day, but at night she is a successful bajha player, disguised as a male to compete in the violent underworld of the colony’s fight clubs. Every win puts her one small step closer to her goal: saving enough to escape Barésh with her family. When a royal recruits her to be a star player for his team, her ruse proves to be her most perilous game yet when it puts both their lives—and her heart—at risk.


Prince Charming he was not... Prince Klark is eager to reverse his reputation as the black sheep of the Vedla clan. If his bajha team can win the galactic title it would go a long way toward restoring the family honor that his misdeeds tarnished. On Barésh, he tracks down an amateur who has risen to the top of the seedy world of street bajha, offering the commoner a chance of a lifetime: a way off that reeking space rock for good. But his new player comes with a scandalous secret that turns his plans and his beliefs upside down. He sets out to win a very different prize—his champion’s reluctant heart.


"If you like realistic character depth and reactions, if you like strong but human, feminist heroines, if you like sports romances, especially set in a scifi-world and if you like a budding romance built on mutual respect, then this is the book for you." —Smart Bitches Trashy Books


(PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AS THE CHAMPION OF BARÉSH)

He's sworn to uphold the rules…


…She's hell-bent on breaking them 


Crown Prince Ian Hamilton fights to stay one step ahead of the schemers who don’t want an Earth guy in line for the galactic throne. A mission critical to galactic peace forces him to hire a cute but tough pixie of a pilot he can’t help falling for–until he discovers she is on the run from the very laws he pledged to uphold. 


Princess Tee’ah Dar has everything except freedom. After learning to fly starships in secret, she flees the stifling rules of the palace for the wild frontier, and promptly gets hired by a man from Earth. Her thrilling new life threatens to crash and burn when she learns her sexy employer is the one man she needed to avoid. Only one problem–her heart may already be past the point of no return. 


But dark forces are on their trail and closing in fast. Soon, one Earth-born Harley riding prince, his rebellious alien princess pilot, and their motley starship crew may be all that stands between the galaxy and all-out war.

WINNER Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence***

*** WINNER RT Reviewers Choice Award ***


“Once again, Grant gives us a perfect pairing of hero and heroine, both strong, courageous and loyal. They compliment each other brilliantly. I found myself transfixed by the story of these two unlikely lovers from different worlds, both bound by heritage, duty, and honor.”


“I read this book first, not knowing of the Star King. I still have this book in my "Sacred Pile," the actual books that will be buried with me!” 


“Intelligent science fiction romance...once again Susan Grant takes the topic women's traditional roles in society and weaves an action packed romance with the struggle within individuals to challenge what is expected of them as opposed to what they want to do with their own life...you will cheer the success of her characters.” 


"Star Prince is my favorite. It's funny, edge of the seat, and [the] true love elements have not, in my opinion, been matched by any author in this genre yet. Being able to tell a story, a real story, is a gift that few have and I believe that Ms. Grant is probably either extremely under appreciated or the best kept secret in the Genre.”


"I really enjoyed the feisty Tee and her determination to be free, Ian and his fight to be the crown prince his stepfather and the galaxy needs him to be, as well as all of the secondary characters"


“Once again, Grant gives us a perfect pairing of hero and heroine, both strong, courageous and loyal. They compliment each other brilliantly. I found myself transfixed by the story of these two unlikely lovers from different worlds, both bound by heritage, duty, and honor."


"I've always thought of Ms. Grant's writing as sophisticated and that her characters are mature, good, and heroic despite their flaws - people you would actually want to know, if they existed! This is sci-fi romance at its best."
