All Effone Pacifica has ever wanted is to be the captain of an airship for the ASPECT company. Now that she's successfully earned her own ship, she'll allow nothing to jeopardize her position or her crew. Not even the allure of Trace Fortis' ocean-blue eyes and appreciation for dictionaries could threaten to break through her defenses.
But Trace has his own demanding job as a carrier captain, and a hard past that makes romance impossible. When Effone is called away on a critical mission, she knows she has to let him go.
Months later, reconnecting on assignment in the most remote, rugged land on earth, Trace and Effone have to face not only their feelings for each other but acts of sabotage from a mysterious enemy. Can they—not to mention their ships and crews—survive the attacks to finish where they left off?
