The Chronicles of Nuala #1
On the planet Nuala, the scam that beguiling free-trader Silver has come to join has just been blown to the skies, along with the throne lines of three separate sovereign nations.
The last male heir of one throne line, Sheel Atare, is unprepared to rule, but he’s quick to seize allies wherever he can – like the beautiful and dangerous Silver.
Now Silver has to choose: stick to the scam, or get sucked into the struggle to save Nuala–and Sheel Atare’s life.
…the joining of the two, action and romance, is nearly seamless. Many have tried to pull this sort of book off in the past, but few have succeeded. Kimbriel makes it look easy.
