What Would You Choose, Love or Duty?
On the brink of civil war, the Torrian Alliance continues with its mission to obliterate Star-children across the universe in order to suppress an intergalactic evil. Following the recommendations of his council, King Gregorio Derry reluctantly agrees to send his only son William on a mission to restore honor to his family name.
William seeks to complete his assignment, the elimination of a Star-child named Sydney on planet Earth, but when the assassination is delayed he begins to realize an emotional connection with his target.
With conspiracy threatening his home planet, and a hidden menace on Earth seeking to secure a vested interest, William finds himself torn between irrevocable duty and sacrificing everything he stands for to defend Sydney.
As William and Sydney struggle to overcome their impossible circumstances, they start to wonder if the connection of two Star-Crossed lovers will be enough to save them from certain doom.

A 5-Star book. I really had fun reading this one. It was such a good mix of old & new, romance & science fiction and yes, there was a bit of mystery & intrigue thrown into the mix as well. I will recommend it to all readers (no matter which genre you prefer). This is a must read for a lot of people as it is a mix of quite a few genres.

Prince William is a bounty hunter and he has come to planet earth in order to kill the Star-child. When he enters earth atmosphere, there is disturbance and it resulted in earthquakes which no one can find an exact cause of. His mission is to locate the star-child and kill her. He has been warned how difficult this mission can be because star-child posses strange powers which can be infectious. So he must be cautious at all cost and he must not fail....

Sydney is a teenage girl living in a small town. She lives with her grandmother Sarah. Her parents are deceased. When William reached planet earth he takes refuge with the two ladies. Who has no idea about his real identity but are hospitable. Sydney also starts thinking of him as her "Mr. Right". William also feels the attraction but his mission is clear, he has to eliminate star-child and the threat she posses to the universe. He has been taught that star-child can e very dangerous and he cannot let himself be distracted. With guidance from IMPI he will carry out his task in due time.

The best part of the story is its beginning, which is very exciting and mysterious. In the middle it got a little bit slow but the ending was no less interesting. I enjoyed reading it and hope that everyone else does too. :)
