If it sounded like a fairytale, it probably was...Tug driver Jemm Aves struggles to keep her dreams alive on a dead-end world. Working for the mines by day, she's a successful bajha player at night, disguised as a male to be allowed to compete in the colony's lucrative and violent underworld where club owners will go to extremes to retain the best players. When a man from the galaxy's richest family recruits her to be a star player for his team, it's because he doesn't know her secret. Only, she soon learns he's not so easily fooled. Suddenly playing bajha jumps from a scheme to feed her family to something far more risky. She'd sooner face down an irate mine boss than be caught lying to the Vash. Prince Charming he was not...Fresh off house arrest, Vash Prince Klark is eager to reverse his reputation as the black sheep of the Vedla clan, a family as famous for its wealth and power as it is for being a bastion of male-dominated tradition. If his bajha team can win the galactic title it would go a long way toward restoring the family honor that his misdeeds tarnished. With a couple of the most celebrated pro-players in the galaxy in tow, he travels to Barésh to track down an amateur who's risen to the top of the seedy world of street bajha, offering the commoner a chance of a lifetime: a way off that reeking space rock for good.RITA-winner Susan Grant enchants readers with an all-new, stand-alone tale of two improbable lovers, their daring secret, and a gamble destined to alter the course of their lives forever.
