Enhance your purchase
Delaney’s entire world is thrown into chaos after she is mistaken for Lissa Olena, an alien princess hiding out on Earth in order to escape an arranged marriage.
Kidnapped by the princess’s head bodyguard, Ruckus, and imprisoned in an alien palace, Delaney is forced to impersonate the princess until Olena can be found. If she fails, it will lead to an alien war and the eventual enslavement of the entire human race.
No pressure or anything.
Factor in Trystan, the princess’s terrifying betrothed who is intent on unraveling all her secrets, and her own growing feelings for Ruckus, and Delaney is in way over her head.

Top reviews from other countries
The sci-fi aspects are pretty light with lots of similarities to earth customs or objects. It feels like there wasn't much world building effort. Everything wraps up fairly fast while seeking to drag on. Her relationships with a couple other aliens magically progress over a game of cards, and suddenly she's gonna miss them. Delaney is also appear a good shot with the Fritz and has good self defense skills after a handful of classes she barely paid attention to a couple years ago. As a martial artist, that last item is complete BS. A couple of classes won't give you the skills to fight off an attqcker , much less three, unless you practice them consistently.
Basically what you get is an 18 year old young woman who lacks a backstory, notable skills other than a smart mouth, who thinks she's independent while letting the men make all the decisions for her. On top of it, she falls for her vapid abductor like a bimbo.
