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. Is he drifting into Insanity by his audacious plan of abduction, or is there something much less sinister about his motives? Is there another threat to the happiness, which Che and Ilana seem to have found? Only time will tell in this, one of the most amazing sequels ever to be written in a book series. This book stands alone at the top of the pile, surpassing everything Susan Grant has written to date. A highly worthy addition to any true romance reader's "keeper shelf", this book is a testament to a talent, which just gets better and better with each new title she produces.

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!!

Vash Nadah Prince Che Vedla seems adjusted to the fact that his former betrothed Princess Tee'ah broke her vows to him and pledged to wed earthling Ian Hamilton. Che's adaptation is quite remarkable because he lost more than a bride; he lost his place as heir to the crown to the newcomer. Che's advisors believe he must restore pride in the monarchy by marrying a suitable princess though much of the recent scandal was caused by others including his house arrested brother Klark for trying to assassinate Ian.
Knowing he has six months left as a bachelor, Che decides to use it wisely by chasing skirts on earth. He visits Ian's film making sister Ilana, but finds he is very attracted to her and she fells the same although she is in denial. However, with scandals rocking the royals and some people feeling their time has passed, can Che risk causing another mess by wooing the woman he loves, the totally unsuitable Ilana; who detests the concept of being in front of the camera as a royal always is.
THE STAR PRINCESS is a strong science fiction romance that focuses on the complex conflict between the obligation to one's country vs. duty to one's self and loved ones. The star-crossed lead couple with a strong support cast makes Susan Grant's galaxy seem real and the dilemma that Che faces plausible. Though the previous two tales (THE STAR KING and THE STAR PRINCE) were powerful entries, THE STAR PRINCESS is the best of the series due to the hero's attitude and quandary.

Positively enchanting! Susan Grant has done it again! She has incorporated old fashion romance and sensitivity with "out of this world male sexuality"! What could be better? Not much, when it comes to Prince Che'. Especially for Ilana, when she receives a surprise visit from the handsome Prince, who claims to be seeking to sow his wild oats before he commits to an arranged marriage to someone he has never met! And he can't understand why her brother, "The Crown Prince" did not alert her to his impending arrival. (Hummm?) As their relationship as "bodyguard" and "tour guide" develop into an unexpected, intense, love story, Che's emotional support helps Ilana overcome her fear of flying (and falling in love), while Ilana's free spirit and love of life breaks down all of the deep rooted, ancient values and perceptions of what a traditional Vedla Prince's wife should be, awakening his heart to an everlasting love. It was great to revist old friends, Jas and Rom and an interesting sub-plot of murder and betrayal will keep you on the edge. I couldn't put this book down, and I was saddened when I had finished. I wanted this book to go on and on...It was such a fun read. If you have read the two previous stories of The Star King and The Star Prince, you are going to love this one! Hey, SG...how about a sequal about the dark and mysterious Klark! This whole series is definately a keeper!

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.
