The Stars We StealEngagement season is in the air. Eighteen-year-old Princess Leonie “Leo” Kolburg, heir to a faded European spaceship, only has one thing on her mind: which lucky bachelor can save her family from financial ruin?

But when Leo’s childhood friend and first love Elliot returns as the captain of a successful whiskey ship, everything changes. Elliot was the one that got away, the boy Leo’s family deemed to be unsuitable for marriage. Now, he’s the biggest catch of the season and he seems determined to make Leo’s life miserable. But old habits die hard, and as Leo navigates the glittering balls of the Valg Season, she finds herself falling for her first love in a game of love, lies, and past regrets.




Beautiful cover.Just. Yes. I really like this cover.

Brightly Burning. I really enjoyed Donne’s first book, and this one is set in the same universe but 40-year before, so it can be read as a standalone.

It’s a retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in space.

  1. Lots of s‘s and stars names coming out end of this year and beginning of next. I keep getting them confused (Scavenge the Stars and one other I can’t remember)! This one sounds fun though!
