Futuristic, Federation Universes

Abbie Haws is trying to give the unranked citizens a voice. She is fighting to change things from what they have been for millennia and that is never easy. Abbie has been fighting all her life and very driven to succeed in whatever she does. Being that driven hasn’t made room in her life for love. That is about to change and in a way that catches her completely by surprise.

Roman Lyons is head of House Lyons the most powerful house of the ranked people. His family is also one of the fifteen Families that have held the rule of the Federation Universes since the first settlers came through the portal from Earth. Trying to keep things running smoothly he agrees to speak with Abbie Haws to see what she is after and see how he can take care of the problem. What he doesn’t expect is his overwhelming attraction to Abbie. Now a complicated situation just got a lot more complicated.

Now while they try to help the people of their world they are trying to handle a tryst that neither one saw coming. As they work together in the conference room and get to know each other in the bedroom they both show the different sides of their lives and world so that each has a new perspective on the difference of the Ranked and Unranked. Now Roman and Abbie’s lives are even more complicated and neither one is sure where this is headed or if it is going to have a happy ending. Only time is going to be able to tell them if they are going to find the happiness they both want or if this is going to be ending badly.

This story is very good and the future world building is very believable. The author has brought her world alive for the reader and she keeps the story realistic. This is turning into a great series and will have the reader eagerly looking forward to the next book in this series. This story really wrenches the readers’ emotions as the reader is hoping for things to work out for the main characters. The secondary characters are also well developed and add a great deal to the story. This one is you won’t want to miss.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
