Synopsis (Goodreads):
He lost it all.

His career, his woman, his sanity.

Two years ago, on a deadly mission to the lawless Devil’s Nebula, Commander Zayn Phoenix’s life imploded. Now the former Strike Wing pilot fills his days with dangerous adventures alongside his treasure hunter brothers.

But his nights are another story: haunted by nightmares of one unforgivable act.

Until an assassin lures him into a hunt. A hunt for her freedom from the Assassin’s Guild. A hunt for a derringer used in an ancient and infamous assassination—of old Earth president, Abraham Lincoln.

Zayn is compelled to join the perilous adventure with Ria Dante that will take them straight into the heart of the Devil’s Nebula, but not for money, fame or treasure.

He joins because Ria has the face of the woman he left for dead in the Nebula years before.
Thoughts on In the Devil's Nebula: I think my weird, out-of-order reading frenzy for this series finally caught up with me. Which is no reflection on this book or the author's writing, but just me going hog wild and reading the books in whatever order I got my hands on them. Somehow, I kept confusing Zayn with one of his cousins and...I should really read series books in order.

Anywho. Zayn. Ria. They have some sparks. And there's that pesky little issue of Ria looking almost exactly like the woman Zayn lost on a mission several years back. Which makes for some awkward times when he accidentally refers to Ria by the other woman's name. Oops!

Hatching a plan to break free of the Assassin's Guild is made even more sticky for Ria because of the feelings Zayn stirs in her. Sexy times happen during adrenaline fueled missions, you know! THEY HAPPEN.

Adventure, a slightly crazed explosives expert, and plenty of hot treasure hunters to go around make this another winner in the series. I say that even with my confusion over the hero and reading orders and...I think I'm going to read these in order from here on out. Maybe.
