Overview

Major Colby Jones is a pilot in the U.S. Air Force, but he’s tired of being overseas and missing holidays with his family. He’s at a crossroad in life, trying to decide if he wants to remain in the military where he can fly jets or if it’s time to move on to another career. Recently divorced from an unfaithful wife, and with the indecision about his future, the last thing he wants or needs is another woman in his life—especially one who is a military widow and has two young children. Even if he were interested in a ready-made family, is it fair to ask her to risk marrying another military man? And if he left the military, how in the world would he afford to support them?

Dianna Thompson’s first impression of Colby is that he’s the typical class clown, showing off and making a loud entrance. Even though she’s been widowed for two years, the last thing she and her children need in their lives is another man—especially one in the military—one who has a dangerous job.

Colby nor Dianna can deny the attraction, but when her two children, especially her son, becomes attached to the handsome and fun-loving man, she knows they will all be hurt when Colby leaves for his next assignment. Can they put the past behind and allow love to find a way?

    Duty Free

    Colby has just returned home after 2 tours overseas and he's tired. He's unsure whether he wants to stay in the military and needs to make a decision soon. He loves flying and can't imagine doing anything else BUT his heart is not into being away from friends & family any longer. He is lonely and wants to find that one person to settle down with & have what his parent's have. Dianna lost her husband to the war and it has been hard for her, and her children, to adjust to not having him. She promises herself that she will never fall for another uniform. She knows that her heart cannot take another loss.

    This story is about discovery, hope, love & trust. Colby & Dianna both discover that things they say they will never do, abruptly fall to the wayside upon meeting each other. Through their previous experiences they both hope that they can make it work, but they have a few obstacles in their way. The love that they share between each other & what Colby showers on the children is so sweet & endearing. Their connection knows no bounds. And finally, the trust that they each have to be willing to exhibit to overcome past fears and just be - made for a heart-warming & tearful ending. Such a sweet romance!
