Touched by a Phoenix by Sophia Byron is a compelling story that sizzles with passion and romance. Brad Scott, though a playboy, keeps his mind and heart dedicated to his job revolving around military technology. Things change when he meets Alexandria Saunders, daughter of one of the wealthiest men in military technology. She becomes an obsession for him. Alexis, on the other hand, does not trust anyone due to her past experience, and has channeled her thoughts and energy into her profession. In this story of action, romance and passion, readers see themselves going through a gamut of emotions along with Brad and Alexis and the dangers that follow them. Will Brad be able to save the world from the terrorists and the terrors they are going to unleash?
The plot has many layers to it. On one side we see the romantic angle to the story with Brad and Alexis, another side showcases the terrorists who want to harm Brad and Alexis, and yet another side speaks about the military, military surveillance and secrecy. The author does a great job weaving in all the sub-plots to the main plot without losing the fluidity and pace of the story. The characters of Brad and Alexis are electrifying in their passion, personality and success. The story takes readers through many twists and turns, keeping them engrossed in the book until the very end. The romantic angle that runs through the plot tones down the harshness of the terror angle, giving it a softness and gentleness. A romantic story that will hold the attention of readers with its many layers.
