Consortium Rebellion, Book 2
Synopsis: Bianca von Hasenberg did her duty for High House von Hasenberg and ended up trapped in a terrible marriage. When her husband dies unexpectedly and leaves her a happy widow, she vows never to marry again. Instead, she uses her connections to save other young women. Information is power and Bianca has a network that would be the envy of the ’verse—if anyone knew about it.
After an attack, Bianca’s oldest brother, the House von Hasenberg heir, disappears from Earth without a trace. Determined to find him, Bianca leaves against orders. When she refuses to return, her father sends Ian Bishop, the director of House von Hasenberg security, to haul her home like a recalcitrant child.
Bianca leads Ian on a merry chase across the universe, but when their paths finally collide, she persuades him that they would be far more successful at finding her brother if they worked together. She will do anything to save her sibling, even if it means spending time alone on a small ship with the handsome, infuriating man who once broke her heart.
As clues lead them deep into rival House Rockhurst territory, Bianca must decide if she can trust Ian with the one piece of information that could destroy her completely. . .
Review: I had a very good time with the first volume and I was really curious to discover the story of Bianca and Ian.
No one really knows it, but Bianca is not the same since her late husband experimented on her. Since then, she has been protecting her own and those she can help with the information obtained from her network. But when she is attacked and her brother disappears, she knows that she will do everything in her power to find him. And even when her father does everything to prevent her from leaving the family home, offering a certain amount to the one who could bring her in, she doesn’t change her mind. But here it is, the head of security at her House is also after her. This man who broke her heart and makes her as angry as she is attracted to him.
I had a good time with Bianca again. I loved discovering her story and seeing who she really was. This life and its consequences are really not easy for her, but she tries to do the best she can. We also see a little more about her brothers and sisters about whom I am curious to learn more.
The author offers us a story full of action and plots that only our two heroes can thwart. It will not be easy, but they will have to trust each other and perhaps they will realize that there is something stronger between them.
A very good second volume!
