Sophia is finally getting control over her magic. Which is great, because if she takes any more time off work, she and her sister will be out on the street. Being a mercenary keeps her off the Council's radar, so she really doesn't want to get fired. Unless she wins the lottery.
Then, she does. In a sense. A big job comes her way, and the pay is enough to keep her afloat the rest of her life. Except her client is Liam Pierce, her boyfriend's father and an important member of the Council that wants all Fireborn like her dead or in prison. The word "no" escapes her lips before he can even get the question out.
But the job hits close to home, and Sophia can't bring herself to refuse. As long as she keeps her distance from her "boss," things should be fine, but Sophia's about to learn there's more to this job that meets the eye . . . and it could cost her everything.
