A delightful science fiction romance with a prickly assassin heroine and a sweet, badass hero. She takes him hostage after a botched assassination, but the political ramifications go much deeper. Balanced on the edge of war, they must find trust enough to work together.
Book Trope: Enemies to Lovers
A young woman from a planet rebelling against Earth finds an abandoned AI mech that could end the war, if she can bring herself to follow her training and sacrifice his life. Beautifully written.
