SEDUCE ME IN FLAMES
Perennial favorite Frank returns to her Three Worlds novels and once more sets the Interplanetary Militia on a mission. The royal heroine of this adventure has been scorned and exiled, yet remains committed to her people. There is plenty of Frank’s trademark passion and powerful drama expertly woven throughout this exciting adventure.
Although she is the rightful heir to the throne of Allay, Ambrea Vas Allay has been imprisoned several times and is currently exiled. Her volatile emperor father had her mother executed for treason and eventually fathered a son. Ambrea is recalled to the palace only to learn her father is dead and that her uncle wants her to renounce her birthright. Thrown back into prison, Ambrea never expects a rescue in the form of a tough Tarian. Rush Blakely gets tossed into prison to implement the militia’s rescue plan, but he doesn’t expect to be emotionally drawn to this royal beauty. Rush has dangerous secrets that he keeps from his teammates, but circumstances force their revelation to Ambrea. With an empire on the line, her enemies are not going to give up.
