Lane uses her turn-of-the-century
backdrop and her knowledge of
aviation to her advantage in a lively
story featuring strong-willed characters. She reaches for an audience searching for fresh historical territory in her charming feminist novel.

Engineer and pilot Rafe Garrick sees his dreams of owning an aeronautical empire scattered on the beach after his plane crashes in Long Island Sound. Heiress Alexandra Bromley pulls Rafe from the wreckage, and her father insists he be taken to their home to recuperate.

Though Rafe's rash and outspoken, Alex realizes he loves freedom and independence as much as she, and he's the first man to ever stand up to her domineering father. It seems like they're meant for one another, except that they're both too stubborn to see it. Their battle of wills continues after Rafe begins rebuilding his plane. Heated words fuel the underlying sexual tension, and once they soar above the clouds, they're able to release the stress. One kiss leads to another, and with a little help from her father and Alex's own passion for flying, she and Rafe find a way to combine freedom and love. (Harlequin, Jan., 300 pp., $5.99)
