NOBILITY: "Authority is based on proof; you must prove you can handle a position before you are granted [that] authority."
NOBILITY: Even the ladies [saw] him as nothing more than an Imperial stud, instead of a real person with real achievements under his belt.

NOBILITY: "How can you reasonably expect us to meet with your president face-to-face when we are having [our people] flee your volume?”
NOBILITY: [He] had turned into such a hulking menace of Imperial authority that Matthieu [was] ready to slavishly obey his every word.
NOBILITY: Matthieu started to tremble, resonating to Gerard’s suffering. “I’m so sorry. It’s all my fault.”
NOBILITY: “This is a battle of the mind and of the soul. You have to find meaning again."

NOBILITY: He made what he felt was his 1st true command decision as an Imperial, as Heir Second, and as an officer. He let the matter pass....
A health crisis inspired Eva Caye to become an obsessive writer, completing eight books in her To Be Sinclair series before she could afford an editor. She published Dignity in August 2012 and released her 8th book Nobility in June 2013, thus achieving her goal to publish all eight of her completed novels in one year. She laughingly refers to Evan's Ladies as Book 6.5, an 'add-on' book to the series since it consists of four novellas. The other seven books are full novels, though most have 'Easter egg' short stories as bonuses for the reader.
The To Be Sinclair series is set some 600 years in the future and covers the lives and loves of the greatest ruling family in the galaxy. Her current works-in-progress are a finale to the series, and two prequels set in the TBS universe about 100 years in the future.
Eva lives with her incredibly supportive husband and two lovely mutts in a tiny, century-old farmhouse in Louisville, Kentucky.
