Overview

Simpliciter Paratus. Absolutely Ready - the motto of the Air Force 506th Rescue Squad. But after the death of his best friend in Afghanistan, parajumper Nic D'Onofrio is ready only for vacation.

Driving back to his condo on Christmas Eve, Nic, known as Batman to his teammates, does something really stupid. He stops to help a damsel in distress.

Her name is Julie. That's all she knows. She's wearing her pajamas. Nic can't leave her there and she won't let him take her to the hospital. The only logical - yeah, right - thing to do is to take her back to his condo.

Read an Excerpt

"No, no police." She responded without hesitation. "Just get me to the car and I'll figure out something."

"C'mon, Julie. That doesn't make sense. You don't have your ID, or money or anything."

Julie pulled herself up straight. "I'm fully aware of that."

Frustration rose up in Nic's throat. "Well, that's about all you're aware of."

"Thanks for reminding me. I don't need this from you, Nic-from-Boston. I'm a big girl. I can take care of myself." Julie stomped to the window, stood by the desk and fingered the phone cord. She stared at the phone as if trying to think of someone to call.

"Yeah, right. You're so independent that you came and slept on the floor beside me last night. Be sensible."

A small squeak came from her before she turned to face him. Julie glared at Nic for an instant. Dang, he shouldn't have said that. But then, almost as quickly as it materialized, the glare melted into indifference.

"Whatever you say."

Great romance with intrigue. A Soft Place to Fall kept me turning the pages and hoping for the rescue squad to make it in time.
