Katie Slater, an Air Force pilot and officer, has been a POW for the past six years in Iraq, and is now returning home to her husband and two children. They're the reason she was able to survive captivity and all of the horrors while in enemy hands. But her homecoming will be bittersweet. Life has moved on without her. Her only connection in a world turned upside down is her co-pilot and best friend, C.D. Quade.

Katie thought C.D. had been killed in the crash, and she's angry because he never came back for her. But he's there now when she needs him the most and that's what matters.C.D. has always loved Katie and won't let her fall ever again without being there to catch her.

This is an incredibly emotional read. Have Kleenex handy -- you'll need it. C.D. and Katie are wonderful protagonists and their story is the reason why one picks up a romance novel. (Apr., 320 pp., $5.99)
