4.0 out of 5 stars Earth dweller meets Vash in wilful clash Oct. 8 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sequentially a direct sequel to Star Prince, this book tells the story of Ian Hamilton's headstrong sister Ilana. The events of Star Prince are several months behind them, but Ilana cannot forget Prince Ché Vedla. For his part, Ché has found himself equally fixated on his Crown Prince's sister, despite having an empire of his own to look to. As one of the original Eight Houses, the Vedla's are proudest of all at being able to trace their unbroken line of kings back to the origins of the current Federation. Ché is expected to marry a Princess of the highest credentials, Vash through and through. And as eldest son and heir, it is an expectation he himself holds.
As Ian Hamilton married his intended, to save face Ché's advisors have suggested that Ché marry first. Seeing the wisdom (in Vash terms) of this advice, Ché agrees. But while they are seeking his bride, Ché plans a vacation - to Earth. There he plans to seek out Illana and purge her from his system.
And so a tradition-filled alien Vash Prince comes to Earth to meet destiny in the form of a tempestuous, adventurous, fun filled, unpredictable and definitely NOT true Vash Princess Ilanna Hamilton.
Ilanna is not the only one to like happy endings. This book continues a series that I can see might carry on in the future, but could tie up the ends of the stories of the current generation. I was very pleased that Grant had written Illana's story, as I liked her a lot when I read 'Star Prince'. Although largely predictable in terms of plot, Grant has written an enjoyable story of two opposites attracting, and has taken the effort of considering how two such people might be able to join their very different cultures together to the benefit of both.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Always, Consistently Talented! Aug. 17 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Spurned by his betrothed, Che Vedla nevertheless feels a sense of duty to his people, his planet, his future subjects. Redeeming the family image in the eyes of the Federation, he agrees to have another bride chosen while he goes on holiday. However, the destination is one of great interest amongst his inner circle - Earth. The planet of the new "Barbarian" Crown Prince, Ian Hamilton B'kah, the man who stole both his bride and his title. His choice of tour guides, even more contentious than his destination - Princess Ilana Hamilton B'kah, Ian's flight-phobic sister.
Ilana has no idea what she is in for, however. She believes Che is simply there to tour one last time, before his forced arranged marriage. But things turn out much differently. Though she initially sees Che as a cold traditionalist, immune to the possibilities of freedom, of choice, she is intrigued by the possibilities of "corrupting" this paragon of Vash Nadah virtue. Goaded on by a bet with her brother, she has every intention of showing Che what he would be missing if he chooses to marry someone his advisors have chosen. What she doesn't realize, though, is that she is every bit as capable of falling for this straight-laced Vedla as the next available woman.
A series of failed "blind-dates" and various other sundry amusements follow, some of which make it back to Eireya, the Vedla home world. Klark Vedla, under house arrest for attempting to assassinate Ian B'kah as he besmirched the Vedla name by stealing Tee'ah Dar from Che, seeks a way to escape and kidnap Ilana. He thinks if he were able to abduct Ilana, that it would be the only way to redeem the family in the Federation.
As the relationship between Che and Ilana grows, the unknown threat of Klark is hovering ever nearer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exotic and Sexy! Aug. 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first Susan Grant book, and I have to say that I loved it, and I hope her other books are as good!! I have never really read science fiction romance novels, but this by far exceeded my expectations. The book has just the right amounts of action, adventure, and sexiness to make it a fast paced novel that you just can not put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is ROMANCE ! Aug. 6 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Star Princess is Susan Grant's 3rd fantastic book in the Star anthology. Hopefully to become a series and far, far from over! Che and Ilana are wonderfully matched and so much fun and playful. Che's ultra sexy and <sigh> so romantic. He puts the hunk in hunky... the honor in honorable. He can be my *bodyguard* any day. Ilana's fun, feisty, energetic and we all need a best friend just like her. The Star Princess has very well-written love scenes that are steamy, romantic and, shall we say, hot. Whew, very hot! There's a bit of intrigue, bets on the side (Ian-the big sweetheart-is back to rile his twin), a wonderfully sweet and unexpected secondary romance. Oh, and Tock! Lots and lots of Tock. Yum. (What's Tock? Read it and find out.) I also want to thank Ms. Grant for giving all us flying-phobes something to laugh about when we are forced to consider boarding a plane. Not that Sue "Ms.-I-can-fly-anything" would ever understand, but Ilana does. LOL! I so enjoyed reading this book. I whole-heartedly recommend The Star Princess. You will NOT be disappointed!!
