"Pure yumminess and just as well written - and plain out fun." --Goodreads


Prince Rornn feels fortunate he can pursue his passions both in the air and on the ground. Being third in line for the throne definitely has its advantages – it allowed him to join the Space Forces as a top-gun starfighter pilot. What he doesn't expect is to find a woman there who not only competes with him – she completes him. They're already best friends, so why can't he convince her that they'd be even better as more?


Trysh joined the Space Forces with the secret hope that her absentee father might notice her accomplishments and acknowledge her. At the top of her game as a starfighter pilot, the last thing she needs is a way too charming prince to get in her way. Trysh learned at a young age what happened when a person lost their heart to someone above their social class – it led to heartbreak. But lately Rornn has her wondering if she wouldn't mind being proved wrong.


Then they rescue a tiny, starving yipwag pup from an alien world. It turns out that "Puppy" is as good at sniffing out terrorists as she is at helping her two clueless humans figure out that they need each other as much as they do her. Now all Rornn's got to do is convince Trysh that he's nothing like her father and that she's just the right woman for him...before the terrorists discover their furry little companion.

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... 

Years ago, Air Force pilot Jas Boswell believed she met the love of her life. She shared a mesmerizing encounter with a stranger after a terrible crash. As soon as rescuers arrived, the mysterious golden-eyed man disappeared. She has spent the last two decades trying to convince herself it was all a dream…

Once heir to a galactic kingdom, Rom B’kah is captain of a starship of derelicts and smugglers. He remains haunted by the memory of the “saving angel” he met during wartime and who vanished without a trace. His loyal crew thinks he has pined for this fantasy woman long enough. Then Jas suddenly returns to him and sets their lives on a collision course with destiny…

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 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." 

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
