Published: Harper Voyager - May 19th, 2020

Chaos Reigning is a steamy and action filled romance starring another truly kick-ass space princess. Battles come to a head, and more than one secret is revealed in the finale of The Consortium Rebellion Trilogy. Chaos follows Caterina, the youngest of the von Hasenberg siblings. Cat knows she is strong, in more ways than one, but it is a strength she has kept closely guarded for most of her life for fear of it being used against those she loves. She has spent her public life building a reputation as a shallow society girl. Most of the time she is happy to step into that role. When Cat orchestrates an invitation to a party at the estate of a rival family, her sister Bianca hires the mysterious but obviously handsome Alexander Sterling to be her bodyguard. Accompanied by Alex as well as his adopted sister Aoife, Cat charms the crowds by day while searching for evidence of betrayal at night. However, when the traitors reveal themselves and inter-space communications and travel are shut down, Cat, her former bodyguards, and a few friends are all that’s keeping the Consortium from becoming a brutal dictatorship. Chaos Reigning is a thrilling conclusion to the Consortium Rebellion Trilogy. Jessie Mihalik has crafted some of the most exciting and brilliant heroines I have read in years, perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Tamora Pierce. The von Hasenberg sisters are an incredibly strong group of women, confident in their own intelligence and abilities, and working to make the next generation of leaders kinder and more just than the ones that came before.

Published: Atheneum Books for Young Readers - December 7th, 2010

This was the first book I ever loved. I have read the Lionessand Immortalsquartets more times than I can possibly count. While any of Tamora Pierce’s series can stand by themselves, many take place in the Tortall universe. I recommend starting with Alanna. Alanna is expected to become a lady. But she could not imagine a more boring future. To escape, she disguises herself as her brother and heads to the royal court to take his place as a knight in training. With the help of her friends, Alanna begins to find her footing. But as a series of seeming accidents befall members of the royal family, Alanna must learn to trust her instincts as the kingdom may need her help sooner than she expected. Over the course of the series, Alanna grows up, learning the importance of friendship, love, and fighting for what you believe. I hope you enjoy her adventures just as much I do!

Published: Berkley - June 5th, 2018

Stella is far more comfortable dealing with numbers and analytics than she is with romantic relationships. Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as a child, she has learned to deal with her sensory sensitivities and is perfectly fine living her life as it is. However, to appease her loving yet overbearing mother, she makes it her mission to learn to become more comfortable with physically intimate relationships. In a gender-swapped Pretty Womanmove, Stella hires Michael, a professional escort, to help her with this task. Hoang’s novel is a much-needed representation of an adult autistic woman claiming her own sexuality. Hoang, who also has Asperger’s, offers a novel that is first and foremost a fun, heartfelt, and sexy romance centered around a strong and confident protagonist who just so happens to share that diagnosis.
