The Princess and the Villain (canon universe)

Summary:
You are cordially invited to the wedding of Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo.

The Death Star is destroyed. Darth Vader is dead. The empire is destroyed. But on the forest moon of Endor, amidst the chaos of a changing galaxy, time has stood still for a princess and her rogue.

After being frozen in carbonite and then risking everything for the Rebellion, Han is eager to stop living his life for others. Han and Leia have earned their future together a thousand times over. And when he proposes to Leia, it’s the first time in a long time that he has a good feeling. For Leia, her life of fighting doesn’t really seem to be over. There is still work to be done to redeem herself from the dark secret she knows runs through her veins. Her brother, Luke, gives her that chance, a chance that comes with family and the promise of the Force. But when Han proposes to her, Leia’s answer immediately hits her lips… Yes.

But “they lived happily ever after” doesn’t always come easily. When Han and Leia leave the idyllic ceremony on Endor for their honeymoon, they find themselves in the grandest and most glamorous place of them all: the Halcyon, a luxury vessel that travels to the galaxy’s most wondrous worlds. Their marriage, and the peace and prosperity it represents, is a lightning rod for everyone in the galaxy, including the remnants of the Empire still clinging to power.

Facing their most desperate hour, the Empire’s soldiers have spread across the galaxy, entrenching themselves on vulnerable and vulnerable isolated planets. As Halcyon travels from world to world, one thing becomes abundantly clear: the war is not over. But as danger approaches, Han and Leia discover that their best battles are fought as husband and wife, not alone.
