On the Ground or In the Air by
Catherine Bybee

I have always had a slight fear of heights, nothing like Monica from Not Quite Enough, however. I don’t fear flying…not any longer. Seems I do that several times a year nowadays. But standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon freaks me out. Go figure. “What would happen if I just slipped?” *shivers*

I flew in a helicopter once, years ago. That was much more scary that I thought it would be. But since writing Trent and Monica’s book I’ve actually wanted to find an excuse to fly in a small plane or helicopter. Maybe I just want to know how the elite get around… let’s face it, a Lear that holds ten would be amazing to buzz the skies in… don’t ya think?

But like Trent, my pilot and Monica’s love interest, I might want to actually understand how the plane flies before I start soaring the heavens. Call it a need to be in control or just smart, I don’t know.

I think a healthy dose of fear is a great motivator to staying alive and healthy. LOL. Too much fear, however, can place your life in superglue and keep you from moving forward and really living.

Know your limits but don’t be afraid to push your boundaries. Hey, it worked for Monica!

Book Description: 

“Bybee’s gift for creating unforgettable romances cannot be ignored.”

Monica Mann has made it her life’s work to save lives. After an earthquake and tsunami hit the shores of Jamaica, she volunteers her trauma skills with Borderless Nurses. Calculating and methodical, Monica creates order out of whatever chaos she finds.

Until she finds the perpetually barefoot, impossibly masculine Trent Fairchild. No one can pin him down. No, really. He’s a pilot and manages a small fleet of choppers on his adopted island home. Hopelessly drawn to one another, they manage to slip away from the wreckage to get a little closer. And they get a lot closer than expected when aftershocks from the earthquake trap them in their own life-or-death scenario. Paradise has brought them together. Now will it tear them apart?

Monica glanced up at the gray skies and frowned. “So, Trent,” she began again. “Are you the only one shuffling the foreign medical staff around the island?”

He shook his head. “There are a few others. Why?”

He kept his eyes on where he walked and avoided her questioning gaze.

“Just wondering.”

He didn’t buy that. “Just wondering?”

“Seems like anyone could drive me to the clinic.”

He walked her behind the hospital and up a short path to where his helicopter waited. “Anyone could drive you.”

She hesitated when she saw her ride. “I thought you said you were driving me.”

“I am. After a short flight to where my car is parked.”

She turned a full circle. “Can’t we just drive?”

Trent moved in front of her and removed his sunglasses. “It’s a short flight back to the airport, then a thirty minute drive. That’s if the roads are cleared.”

“Can’t we just—” Her ice blue eyes never left his.

“I didn’t kill you the first time, Monica. I won’t this time either.”

She swallowed.

“It was better thinking you volunteered to take me instead of being the only person capable of it.”

Actual fear hid behind her eyes. “Why’s that?”

“I prefer flirting to flying.”

A slow, easy smile met his lips. He knew then irrevocably that Monica thought about him at some point during her short stint on the island.

He replaced his sunglasses and reached for her hands. “How about a little of both?”
