Staff Reviews

To prevent galactic war, telepathic links were created to foster empathy and ensure that everyone was heard, no matter their social station. Joy Abara is best friends with her Kindred, Duke Felix Hamdi, though they live on different planets and have never met face to face. When the royal family is assassinated, bumping Felix up in the line of succession and making him a murder suspect, his life is in danger and he goes on the run, straight to Joy. They crash land their ship on a provincial planet called Earth and do their best to act like human teenagers while they try to clear Felix's name. 

— Rosie

Joy Abara knows her place. A commoner from the lowly planet Hali, she lives a simple life--apart from the notoriety that being Kindred to the nobility's most infamous playboy brings.

Duke Felix Hamdi has a plan. He will exasperate his noble family to the point that they agree to let him choose his own future and finally meet his Kindred face-to-face.

When the royal family is assassinated, putting Felix next in line for the throne...and accused of the murders, he must leap into action to save himself and Joy. Meeting in person as they steal a spacecraft and flee amid chaos might not be ideal...and neither is crash-landing on the strange backward planet called Earth. But hiding might just be the perfect way to discover the true strength of the Kindred bond and expose a scandal--and a love--that may decide the future of a galaxy.
