Amid Stars and Darkness by Chani Feener - OPTIONAL

As Delaney is leaving the club, she bumps into a beautiful alien girl.  Next thing she knows, she has been abducted and whisked off to another planet.  Turns out the alien girl is a runaway princess and she did something to Delaney so that everyone thinks she is the princess, or Lissa.  The Lissa is betrothed to another planet’s prince and if her were to discover the ruse, the consequences would be war between the worlds and devastation for Earth.  Delaney is a decidedly uncooperative Lissa.  It is only her intrigue for her new bodyguard, Ander Ruckus, and his promise that as soon as they find the runaway Delaney will get her life and identity back, which is keeping her even sort of under control.  Everyone has a lot of lies to juggle in order to keep everyone else safe.

Its been a couple of years since the height of the alien romance craze.  If your earlier entires have become stale, then choose this for a fresh infusion.
