Abandoned by Bethany Burke
The second book in Hidden Worlds series is here…
On twenty fifth century Earth, I’ve lived a perfect safe life. My off world research trip to the prison colony planet of Gamma Rigel Two was supposed to be a few weeks of interesting study, nothing more.
Then I was betrayed by the men on my space shift and abandoned on Gamma Rigel where within minutes I was captured by massive barbarian warriors. A terrible accident? Or an intentional act?
And that was just the beginning, because when my Earth origins were revealed, without warning, those who left me behind tried to kill me.
I can never go back. Even if I had a way to return to Earth, I know too much. I am now a secret that can never be revealed.
Women on Gamma Rigel live an existence beyond anything I could ever have imagined. Subject to embarrassing discipline and shameful examinations, young women are prepared for their lives as happy brides and I am to become one of them. I have no choice.
Before I know it, I come under the notice of Prince Rohan the ruler of Gamma Rigel, a ruthless warlord with ice blue eyes and the body of a god, and he wants me. He also thinks deep down I am no different from the obedient punished women of Gamma Rigel. He’s wrong.
Rohan has his own secret. Gamma Rigel is not nearly as primitive as it seems, and I am tasked with helping those on Gamma Rigel unravel enough technology to achieve space travel, the first step to getting revenge on the evil powers on Earth.
I am a prisoner. Do I help because I have no choice? Or because my body betrays me?

Bethany has been writing professionally since the mid 1980s. In the early 1990s, bothered by the what she perceived as an increasing trend towards “politically correct romance,” Bethany began self-publishing her spicy romances and sending her Xeroxed books out through snail mail. With the dawn of the Internet in the late ’90s, Bethany was freed (at last!) from all those tiresome late night trips to the 24-hour Kinkos and from standing in line at the post office. She launched her first website on a September day in 1998, went out for dinner, and came home to find that sixteen people had bought one of her books. She never knew how they found her, but she’s never looked back.
