The day has finally come, Swooners! Rogue Princess by B.R. Myers and Gone by Nightfall by Dee Garretson are hitting shelves TODAY!!! Whether you're in the mood for a sci-fi Cinderella retelling or an emotional historical romance, we've got you covered.

Rogue Princess

The fate of their world rests on her choice.

Princess Delia knows her duty: She must choose a prince to marry in order to secure an alliance and save her failing planet. Yet she secretly dreams of true love, and feels there must be a better way. Determined to chart her own course, she steals a spaceship to avoid the marriage, only to discover a handsome stowaway.

All Aidan wanted was to “borrow” a few palace trinkets to help him get off the planet. Okay, so maybe escaping on a royal ship wasn’t the smartest plan, but he never expected to be kidnapped by a runaway princess!

Sparks fly as this headstrong princess and clever thief battle wits, but everything changes when they inadvertently uncover a rebel conspiracy that could destroy their planet forever in this gender-swapped sci-fi YA retelling of Cinderella.
