Adrift with a stranger, female balloonist Aerial Windsor was too intent on breaking a distance record to notice the man hiding in the corner of the WindRose. And by the time she discovered gun-wielding Rye Berenger, the feisty flyer was too committed to her goal to change her course to suit an outlaw. Aerial would get him out of Iowa, but it had to be on her terms! At first that meant keeping the handsome stowaway at arm's length, but as she began to trust the warmth in his dark eyes, she realized that he was the sort of man she always dreamed of. And as they floated above the world, they joined together in an honest love, without a care for what awaited them when they came back to earth!
