She considers the question, then nods, reaching up to tuck her hair back where it belongs. “Where will I sit?”
Sit? Why, on this comfortable chaise lounge I’ve carried here for you in my pocket, Your Highness, so glad you asked.
I clamp my mouth shut, struggling not to say it aloud. Miss LaRoux notices me biting back a response and her expression darkens.

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner is as breathtaking as its cover. A little snippet from my review of the book:

Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux come from two very different worlds. Tarver, a young decorated soldier, is being paraded around for his heroic acts. He would like nothing more than be away from the privileged passengers aboard the spaceliner Icarus. Lilac LaRoux is the heiress of LaRoux Industries and her father’s pride and joy. She knows better than to mix with the likes of Major Merendsen, but can’t seem to help herself. When the ship is thrown catastrophically out of hyberspace, the two end up in the same escape pod that’s hurting into the unknown. Tarver and Lilac must learn to overcome their differences because despite their reluctance, they will need each other to survive the strange planet on which they find themselves……” Find my full review here.
