In exchange for an honest review

I liked this one even better than book 1! I do enjoy when that happens.

The world is great. I am not going to explain it. Space, rich houses, a war going on. Just a really interesting world building that you need to read about.

Biance is a member of a High House. She was married to an asshat (that is kind, he was an evil inventor). She is a great hacker and uses her talents for good. I liked everything about her, and what a shitty time she had had!

She must find her brother. The sexy chief of security is on her tail to bring her back. Her House is at war.

Action, lots and lots of it. The romance is slow building and has been for years. I did like that they took it easy, I mean she is on the run, he is running too, there are baddies left and right. Who has time to stop for that then.

Emily Woo Zeller is great and does an amazing job with Bianca and the rest. I like her style and voice. She fits very well in a futuristic world.

The narration does well with non stop action and builds the tension.  A great listen

As the dutiful daughter of High House von Hasenberg, Bianca set aside her personal feelings and agreed to a political match arranged by her family, only to end up trapped in a loveless, miserable marriage. When her husband unexpectedly dies, Bianca vows never to wed again. Newly independent, she secretly uses her wealth and influence to save other women stuck in dire circumstances. Information is power and Bianca has a network of allies and spies that would be the envy of the 'verse-if anyone knew about it.

When her family's House is mysteriously attacked, Bianca's oldest brother, the heir to House von Hasenberg, disappears. Fearful for her brother's life, the headstrong Bianca defies her father and leaves Earth to save him. Ian Bishop, the director of House von Hasenberg security-and Bianca's first love-is ordered to find and retrieve the rebellious woman.

Ian is the last man Bianca wants to see. To evade capture, she leads him on a merry chase across the universe. But when their paths finally collide, she knows she must persuade him to help her. Bianca will do anything to save her sibling, even if it means spending time alone on a small ship with the handsome, infuriating man who once broke her heart.

As the search takes them deep into rival House Rockhurst territory, Bianca must decide if she can trust Ian with the one piece of information that could destroy her completely . . .

  6. I finished this one the other day, and I loved it even more than the first. I enjoyed the romance, and I liked how tech savvy Bianca was. I just wish that it had followed up better on the dangling story line from the first.
