Life is no fairytale in the Cherished Galaxy, but I still ended up a queen.
No, literally. A wicked king's deathbed curse places the planet Eralis' crown on my head. Now I have to fulfill the dead king's terms or face my execution -- including finding four husbands on a planet that treats females like second-class citizens.
I'm a simple travel nurse with a penchant for good beer, hot one night stands, and a large helping of commitment phobia. The beer is crap on this backwater planet, but the aliens are fire, and it's impossible to keep my hands to myself… except I don't want to run afoul of the misogynistic laws on this dying planet which might chain me down to a creep. For this reason alone, I can't wait to skedaddle and head off to new horizons when my job on this dying planet ends.
The last thing I want is to rule this dump.
With death the only other option, I forge ahead. Blindly, stupidly, dodging assassination attempts from the dead king's angry sons… and, oh yeah, trying to find four husbands to secure my crown and my life.
Thankfully, that might be the easiest issue on my plate. The flirty palace guard has been tempting me for months, and there's also the union sympathizer that stirs up political trouble along with my southern territory. After them stands the stoic bodyguard and his, erm, interesting attachments. Oh, and let's not forget the old king's son, the former prince assassin... and the embarrassing subject of my last one night stand on this planet. He's either here to help me, or kill me, but he's one thousand percent trouble.
I really need a good drink…
