Grounded Hearts

In Grounded Hearts the storyline is simple – an RAF pilot bails out of his damaged bomber, sustains injuries and seeks help from a lovely woman in enemy territory. The storytelling, however, is anything but simple. Here, I found romance, adventure, spiritual wisdom, humor, pathos, and a picture of ...

But the history behind our bombing missions, the whole story of the "flying fortress" and the strategy of daylight bombing somehow always seem to grip my attention and hold it. Wh ...

It's Hotter in Hawaii

It’s Hotter in Hawaii reads more like romantic suspense than contemporary romance. I found the plot to be interesting, but the character and relationship development are too weak for a recommendation. Cassie Montgomery’s half-brother Dan was a pilot who recently died in a helicopter crash. Sh ...

On the Wings of the Morning

I love seeing historical romances set in the early 20th century and, since I also find the history of aviation fascinating, I was doubly thrilled to stumble across On Wings of the Morning. This tale of two restless souls finding peace and love has a beauty about it that made the story linger in my m ...
