Scandal: Scions of the Star Empire #1

Uncharted Worlds Media
Free sample

When a princess who's no stranger to scandal runs afoul of the secrets of the most powerful cabal on Landfall, even her crown can't protect her from the consequences.

They can have anything they want...except a future.

Nothing infuriates Princess Ione Ra more than having someone else take control of her reputation from her, and her old nemesis--gossip journalist Jaris Pulne--is poised to do just that with pilfered pics of her caught in a compromising position with her power-couple partner. As someone who's no stranger to manipulating the markets on her own social life, Ione knows the wrong scandal means social suicide.

Privilege is a prison...

For the other half of the power couple, Den Hades, his survival has depended on staying in his powerful father's shadow in order to protect his secrets. But on the very night of his one chance to earn a shot at becoming a Scion--and freedom from his father's ambitions, scandal threatens to tear him from Ione, or worse--force them together before their time.

Athena Grayson
 The bounty on her captive's head is nothing compared to the one on her own... 

The Snare

A simple job turns into a fight for survival when Treska crash-lands on a remote moon, far from the heart of her Union. On the run from space pirates and planetary insurgents, she must rely on Micah to help them both survive when they learn the bounty on her captive’s head is nothing compared to the bounty on her own. 

But the moon’s peculiar atmosphere wreaks havoc on Micah’s mental talents, mixing memories of his lost lover with his current captor. Blurring the lines between his mission and his affection might make it impossible for Micah to protect his enemy from his allies. 

The Snare includes episodes 4-6 of the Huntress of the Star Empire, a romantic fantasy series set against the backdrop of an interplanetary government and the resistance fighting against it. If you like fast-paced action, satisfying romantic tension, and breathtaking sci-fi worlds, then you’ll love Athena Grayson’s sizzling space opera.

About the Huntress 
Ever since she was found in the aftermath of alien attacks, Treska Sivekka has been trained to one purpose--to hunt down threats to the security of the Union that gave her an identity. But when the Union's biggest threat inspires desire, and not fear, it’s going to take all her training to protect her principles against his persuasive onslaught. 

The Huntress's neuro-collar and repulsor cuffs may keep Micah bound to her mercy, but they can't stop him from challenging her convictions, and the lies she's been told about his people. But when the secrets surrounding her own missing memories begin to reveal themselves, he may be the only one she can trust.

Athena Grayson
Part One: The Chase

Getting him in handcuffs was the easy part...

Treska Sivekka is known as the Huntress — the Union's most skilled bounty hunter. She knows no other life than capturing the treacherous psypaths whose mental abilities pose a security threat to the government she loves and serves. When she captures Micah Ariesis and claims the bounty on his head, her mission will be complete.

But every scumbag in the star system wants a piece of Micah, and she's got to keep the last psypath out of their grubby claws—and out of her own mind—long enough to get him back to the Capitol. Even if his abilities might hold the key to unlocking her own missing past.

If you like fast-paced action, satisfying romantic tension, and breathtaking sci-fi worlds, then you'll love Athena Grayson's sizzling space opera.

Athena Grayson
 He’s her captive…and her best chance to discover the truth. 

The Catch

Micah’s mission to strike at the Union takes on dangerous complications when his suspicions about Treska’s mysterious past are confirmed. Treska's secret could hold the key to breaking the Union’s uncanny stranglehold on the star system...but at the cost of her mind. 

The Union gave Treska an identity and purpose she could believe in, but outside of its influence, she’s forced to question not only the official policies, but her own beliefs about psypaths, especially Micah. Rather than laying her doubts to rest, the arrival of a Union battle cruiser pulls Treska into a web of deceit with her identity at its center. 

The line between allies and enemies blurs when you can't even trust your own mind. 

If you like fast-paced action, satisfying romantic tension, and breathtaking sci-fi worlds, then you’ll love Athena Grayson’s sizzling space opera.

Only her enemy can set her mind free!

With her world shattered and her identity in crisis, Treska’s only ally is the man whose mental powers terrify her. It’s going to take all of Micah’s mental talents to set her free, but her fear of his gifts may make Treska a prisoner of her own mind.
