Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood
Three royal houses ruling three interplanetary systems are on the brink of collapse, and they must either ally together or tear each other apart in order for their people to survive.Publishes in US: December 8th 2015 by Running Press Kids
Asa is the youngest daughter of the house of Fane, which has been fighting a devastating food and energy crisis for far too long. She thinks she can save her family’s livelihood by posing as her oldest sister in an arranged marriage with Eagle, the heir to the throne of the house of Westlet. The appearance of her mother, a traitor who defected to the house of Galton, adds fuel to the fire, while Asa also tries to save her sister Wren's life . . . possibly from the hands of their own father.
But as Asa and Eagle forge a genuine bond, will secrets from the past and the urgent needs of their people in the present keep them divided?
Author Tessa Elwood's debut series is an epic romance at heart, set against a mine field of political machinations, space adventure, and deep-seeded family loyalties.

I like simple scifi... and this one threw too many terms at me all at once and it was hard to deal with that and figure out what was going on. I need to connect with the main character quickly and although I knew that asa loved her sister and / was trying to do the best for the people, I was thrown into the middle of a crisis.
I thought that this would work for me because of the synopsis claim that it was an epic romance, but at 12% I still haven't seen a hint of the romantic interest.
That isn't to say that the writing is poor or the characters are poorly constructed, it's personal on my end.
