Molly O’Gara is a Martian misfit. Born on Mars to Ag farmer parents, she was adopted as a baby by a high-ranking Royal family after her parents were killed. As an “Ag,” by rights Molly should have exceptional skill with plants, so the fact that she instead has a “brown thumb” is a big source of embarrassment. Because she’s not truly Royal, she also has none of the prestige that goes with that group, except for that of being appointed official Handmaid to Sovereign Emileia, leader of all Martian people on Mars and Earth. Though holding such a position is a great honor for a lowly Ag, now that she and Emileia, better known as M, are back on Earth, there is little for Molly to do in that capacity. That is, until a new boy shows up at Jewel High. Tristan, another Royal, is absurdly handsome but also totally obnoxious—and seems to have made it his mission in life to steal M, the Sovereign, away from her bonded soulmate, Rigel. So now Molly’s mission as Handmaid is to keep Tristan as far away from M as possible—even if that means spending way more time in his company than she’d like. As expected, that kind of familiarity breeds contempt, on both sides. At first, anyway…
