She’d hoped to make friends with her cousin, Ana-Stacia, but so far, that hasn’t happened. And then, there is Riley—the gorgeous steward for Poppy’s airship, the Stacia Rae. When Cinead and Ana-Stacia are told to work on fixing the Stacia Rae—together—Cinead figures it will never work. They just don’t do well together.
