Excerpt


The church steeple loomed at them.


The bi-plane banked to the left, the boarding house

below them. As they flew over Main Street, the plane

rose to a higher altitude.


She peered from side to side observing the earth

from a perspective she’d never dreamed about. The

thick green forests would open to a lake or pasture then

another forest would come into view. The vibration of

the bi-plane swept through her body, dulling her senses.

She closed her eyes and relaxed against the seat. She

had no idea how long they’d been in the air.

The humming of the wires changed to a higher

pitch. The airplane picked up speed. She grabbed the

sides of the seat as fear clutched her heart. She closed

her eyes and prayed. The bi-plane hit the pasture with a

bounce before coming to a stop close to the shed.


Victor turned off the engine. He stepped out,

climbed on the plane beside the seat and reached for

Dottie’s hand to help her out.


He jumped off the wing, grabbed her around the

waist, and set her in front of him. Without saying a

word, he took her face in his hands. He bent to kiss her.

Her legs were weak from flying. She hadn’t gotten used

to being on land. When he kissed her, it was as if she

were in a whirlpool, the earth spinning around her.


She swayed, Victor steadied her. “Well, how do

you like it?”


She tightened her hold on his arm as the earth

turned beneath her. “What, the flying?”


He pulled the aviator cap off her head. “Yes, the

flying.”


“I was scared at first, but when we got in the air, I

relaxed and enjoyed the ride.”

Excerpt


Ruth Ann drifted to sleep and woke when Frankie

silenced the engine of the airplane. “We got here quick.

I’m glad I missed the landing. It scares me to land and

take-off.”


“I didn’t know. I thought you liked to fly.” He

unfastened his seat belt.


“I do, after we’re in the air and before we land.”

She waited for him to come around and help her out of

the plane.


His Ford coupe sat alone in the parking lot. He put

her suitcases in the car and headed into the hangar. “I

have a couple of things to do before I take you home, I

won’t be long.”


She followed him. She roamed the building to

make sure Al wasn’t hiding. “I’ll wait in here with

you.” Her heart raced with excitement while her

stomach quivered from nerves. She wanted to kiss him,

wanted him to kiss her.


Frankie stepped to his desk and studied a piece of

paper.


She followed him, took the paper out of his hand,

and placed it on the desk. She captured his hands and

placed them around her waist.


He stepped back. “What’re ya doin’?”


She tiptoed and put her hands behind his neck and

pulled his head toward her. She kissed him. The touch

of his lips sent a shock wave through her body. He took

control and devoured her mouth in a demanding kiss.

She reveled in his scent. He smelled like musk, spice,

motor oil, and the sky.

Excerpt


He stared at the lake he flew over each time he

landed at the airfield, stopped the car, and turned off the

ignition. “Your uncle’s lake?”


“Yes, there’s a bench where we can sit and talk.”


He opened her door and put his arm around her

waist drawing her close. Twilight gave enough light for

him to see the bench close to the water. He waited for

her to sit and then he sat, held her hand and placed a

kiss on her cheek. He stared at the sky as the stars came

out one by one. “This is a magical place.”


She placed her hand on the back of his neck and

pulled his face close.


He gazed into her eyes. The jolt of his gut reaction

unnerved him. She’d been sealed in his heart since the

day he met her and if he kissed her the way his lips

wanted there would be no going back. Her mouth

enticed him, soft and willing. Instead of kissing her lips,

he placed a chaste kiss on the top of her head. She put

her arms around his neck, her body melted into his.


Every woman before her, every disappointment, every

happiness sabotaged by her embrace. He brushed kisses

on the velvet skin of her neck and obeyed his heart. He

fell into her snare and captured her mouth, devouring

the sweetness of her lips, her response as eager as his.
