Charlie James is a helicopter pilot. Charlie is one of the best in the business, so Gallagher Cole feels privileged to sign on such a competent new employee for his heli-skiing company. Gallagher feels privileged, that is, until he discovers that Charlie is (horrors) a woman. Then Gallagher feels betrayed, cheated, disgusted, and extremely justified in attempting to show her the door. Not to mention full to the brim with a kind of righteous indignation that will leave most readers wanting to show HIM the door . . .

But Charlie puts up with this incredible macho hang-up/attitude because she really needs the job. Charlie's life, unbeknownst to her surly employer, basically revolves around caring for her developmentally disabled 22-year-old cousin, Kenny.

After a suitably tense interlude, Charlie gets the job, but now she's got other problems: Kenny is beginning more and more to move toward an independence the overprotective Charlie is reluctant to grant, and Gallagher is turning out to actually have a heart. What's a girl to do, especially when she's already had her own heart broken once, and when she also must face the fact that devoting yourself to a loved one doesn't mean you stop having dreams of your own?

While Charlie's smothering attitude toward Kenny may be pretty grating to most contemporary readers, there's a profound message in here about how love is translated into everyday acts of caring and courage
