Product Description

The TPP have developed a new destructive weapon and intend to test it on the Borealis Space Station. Helios Talon, a Rebellion freedom fighter from Pith, is dispatched to the station to discover the extent of the weapon's development and stop it if necessary. He's also given a personal mission from his sister, Persephone: keep Vivian Melendez, the owner of Korn, safe from an unknown assassin.

Helios and his cousin, Athena, arrive on the Borealis and discover the TPP are ready to test the weapon. He's got to act fast, but when Helios meets Vivian, distractions complicate his plan. Can he overcome his challenges and save not only the feisty Vivian, but the station, too?


He cupped her cheek and felt his mind connect with her again. "I'm not ashamed to work for the Rebellion. The TPP are ruthless and careless with life. The Rebellion is growing and soon it will be strong enough to overtake the TPP."

"I can't deny the conviction I hear in your voice."

"When I believe in something or someone, I'm in one hundred percent. It wasn't easy growing up on Pith, then watching the TPP rape my world. They killed my parents."

"That's your reason for being a rebel?"

"No, my motivation. I still have relatives on Pith. I still want to live there when the fighting is all over." He quieted and offered her a wistful smile.

"Anything else you want?"

"A family of my own one day."

She paused. At one point in time she had wanted that, too. The knots lessened in her stomach. Helios drew close. Impulse took over. His lips skirted hers. His warm breath and spicy scent made her feel protected. Vivian leaned against him. Her lips brushed against his. He tasted of honey and berries -- and chocolate. The seductive sample he offered fueled her body, urging her to savor and enjoy.

She placed her palms flat against his muscled chest and her heart skipped a beat. She never felt so safe, so wanted.

Then reality struck. This was only a moment. She wasn't TPP or a rebel. Her home was here with Sally and Korn. Adonis sounded like he wanted more than she could offer, and Benares was not going to ruin her life again.

She pushed Helios away and broke off the sweet, heartwarming kiss, but discovered she was breathless and couldn't look away from him. Adonis managed to confuse the heck out of her.

  1. "...plunks the reader smack dab in the middle of the action" 4 Star Review

    "... the book was enjoyable as a read-alone. The characters are well drawn and likeable (I especially like Sally, the spine cat).

    I will definitely be downloading the rest of the series to add to my ever growing TBR pile! Good job, Ms. Burkhart."
