The Handmaid’s Secret
She was always a Martian misfit...
Molly has never really fit in anywhere. Even as Handmaid to Martian Sovereign Emileia, her one claim to importance, she feels useless now she’s back on Earth. But all of that changes when an obnoxious, annoyingly handsome Royal boy arrives in Jewel and she makes an unexpected discovery about herself.
Molly O’Gara is a Martian misfit, born on Mars to Ag farmer parents but adopted and raised by a high-ranking Royal family. Unfortunately Molly lacks the usual skill with plants that go with her birth heritage, while also lacking the prestige she would have as a true Royal. Her only claim to importance is being appointed official Handmaid to the Martian Sovereign, Emileia. Holding such a position is a great honor for a lowly Ag but now that she and Emileia, better known as M, are back on Earth, there is little for Molly to do in that capacity. That is, until a new Royal boy shows up at Jewel High. Though absurdly handsome, Tristan is also arrogant and obnoxious—and seems determined to steal M, the Sovereign, away from her bonded soulmate, Rigel. As Handmaid, Molly’s job now is to keep Tristan away from M and Rigel, even if that means spending way more time in his company than she’d like. Such familiarity breeds contempt, on both sides. At first, anyway…

“Molly has long been one of my favorite secondary characters in this series. The fact that she gets her own story and love is so fun. This is a great mix of enemies to lovers and fated mates. The build up to the secret was so natural. It’s obvious Ms. Hiatt has been planning this all along. The story telling is seamless. Tristan is a great character, as well. Their interactions are hilarious and (eventually) heart warming.” ~Aizlynne, Goodreads reader
