Pia Korbin needs a complete makeover — fast. She's on the run from some nasty Rayvicians, and with burn scars over half her body, it's hard to blend in. The only way she can afford the surgery is to become a Galactic Bride. With a lovely new face and body, she is sent to Qurilixen and chosen by Prince Zoran.

Zoran thinks her feisty attitude and toned body are beautiful, but Pia is insulted if he says so. As if this wasn't enough of a tangle, Zoran is hiding secrets of his own — for starters, he's a shape-changer, a dragon, no less. And another set of shape-shifters is trying to assassinate the royal family. There's never a dull moment on this planet! (THE RAVEN BOOKS, March 2011, 260 pp., $15.99)
