Mission to Mahjundar
by Veronica Scott
An attempted assassination left Princess Shalira blind as a child and she’s resigned herself to an arranged marriage rather than face life under the thumb of her cold stepmother. But then she meets Mike Varone, a Sectors Special Forces officer sent to Mahjundar by the intergalactic government to retrieve a ship lost in her planet’s mountains. After Mike saves Shalira from another assassination attempt, she arranges for him to escort her across the planet to her future husband.
Mike, for his part, resists his growing attraction to the princess; he has a mission on this planet and she isn’t part of the strategy. But what should have been an easy trek through Mahjundar’s peaceful lands swiftly turns into an ambush with danger around every turn. Caught in a race against time, can they escape the hostile forces hunting them and make it off the planet?
