Lieutenant Grace Yates is a natural born pilot and her life is the military. Living aboard a ship for months at a time, flying dangerous missions and training runs are just daily routine for her. A close call for Major Bruce Stanton causes him to realize that if he were to be unsuccessful in a mission, he might have some regrets. One of them is not pursuing his feelings for Grace. So they begin a long distance romance via e-mail, letters, care packages and quick weekend visits between deployments. Can their relationship develop into something permanent and if so, at what cost? Author Dee Henderson writes with the skill of an F/A-18 Hornet pilot! TRUE VALOR (4.5) is certainly an eye-opener into the unique and courageous world of those who so bravely serve their country, while the romance is brewed at just the right pace.
