***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Lady Felicia Sorensen, a brilliant microengineering student, finds herself pressured to date Emperor Victor Sinclair, for he has fallen madly in love with her! Despite being showered with extravagant gowns and attention, she longs for a fascinating life as a scientist, instead of the stressful and dangerous destiny of an Empress The social pressures of being the Emperor’s Betrothed, from gossip and manipulation to an assassination attempt, cause her to weigh her love for him against her personal goal, to do research in her own lab someday.
Will Felicia choose her Imperial lover and tough out the extreme political and social pressures with the supreme ruler of the Empire, or will she choose her goals and help thousands, millions, possibly billions of people through her intellectual achievements?
This science fiction romance is the first of the seven-part To Be Sinclair series. The saga begins with DIGNITY and its companion volume MAJESTY, which describe the romance and first years of marriage of the Emperor and Empress of the Sinclair Demesnes. A few scenes describe sexually explicit behavior.

What we have here is a complete genre crossover, to the extent where I don’t think I have ever read anything quite like it before. Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that this is a bad thing, but it certainly is different.
You have what is basically, almost a regency style romance period piece, set in the future, on another colony. The wars being fought are on a much larger scale but the manners and expectations of the royalty are so very proper and old fashioned.
Definitely and intriguing mix with a very well written love story running through. Sci Fi meets Romance and neither is compromised. It has certainly piqued my curiosity as I move on to book 2 in the saga!
