There's Trouble in the Skies... For Sophia Stevenson, there's no going back to the life she knew. She never asked for the powers that make her a precious commodity to the secret society of Illuminists--and their archenemies. Captain Bion Donkova would give anything to possess the powers that have fallen in Sophia's lap. If only the beautiful, infuriating woman could stay out of trouble, he wouldn't have to keep coming to her rescue... Bion and Sophia have friction to spare--and nothing fuels a forbidden passion better than danger...
