For the life of me, I can't remember the title or author, but the story line is . . . Two male friends have a charter plane service.  One of their top customers is a wealthy family.  Older husband marries younger secretary so she can keep tabs on the trusts for his children.  One son who is lazy and depends of his monthly allowance, the other a daughter who is a wack-o with a couple of children (I think her name is Tamzin?)  Husband dies.  Widow decides to use charter service for a get away to a ski resort.  One of the pilots has no use for the widow, thinks of her as a gold digger, but he ends up having to fly the charter flight as the other friend turns up to be real sick.  Friend is allergic to cats and has done to an animal shelter to hold and rub against a cat for the allergic reaction it will cause.  Plane crashes (much to the delight of the step-children) and widow ends up saving pilot who doesn't like her; she has to stitch up his head and build them a temporary shelter as it's snowy/bad weather.  Turns out the other pilot friend stuffed a plastic bag in the fuel line so it wouldn't take so much fuel.  He wants the plane to crash and is hoping for the insurance settlement to pay off gambling debts.  Pilot of plane and the young widow eventually fall in love (what else?) and are rescued.  Young widow has a brother and sister in law (named Peaches). My write-up isn't so good, but I'm hoping someone can recognize the story and tell me the title/author.  Thanks for your help.

Sounds similar to Up Close and Dangerous by Linda Howard.

Well, I'll be darned.  Thanks, Lsressler.  No wonder I couldn't find it as I was thinking it was a Silhouette Intimate Moments type book, but you are right.  Geez, guess you can tell I only got a couple of hours sleep last night.  Thanks again.
