Overview

U.S. Marine Colonel Nelson Wainwright was lucky too make it back from Afghanistan alive after his helicopter went down in a blaze of machine gun fire. Now, he's bent on denying the excruciating pain he still feels months after the crash - fearing it will keep him from attaining the only thing he wants: a promotion to four-star general. But when he meets the distractingly beautiful Audrey Powers, his world is rocked. Could there be something Nelson desires more than four stars?

As a physician, Audrey knows the pain in Nelson's neck could mean trouble - and when her interest in him becomes more than medical, she's got some trouble herself. Scarred by an early heartbreak, the last thing she wants is a romantic involvement. Now, as their lives intertwine, the two find it's time to face new pain and old wound, and discover whether new love has the power to heal their hearts.

Marine Colonel Nelson Wainwright hides his neck injury sustained when a missile hit his coptor in Afghanistan because he fears that revealing it would end his career. After almost twenty-four years in the service, Nelson still hopes to retire as a Four-Star General, but knows his chances remain slim. On top of that he grieves the death of his brother a Navy Commander, who named him as guardian to look after his four-year-old nephew Ricky. Nelson hires Lena Alexander as Ricky¿s nanny.

Lena notices how often Nelson massages his neck so she calls her niece Dr. Audrey Powers who tells her aunt to stop the matchmaking. When Audrey and Nelson meet, sparks fly and they fall in love, but she wants to help him with his whiplash problem while he stubbornly thinks in terms of love vs. his career.

FLYING HIGH is part of a four book miniseries by different authors. The only book this reviewer read is Gwynne Forster¿s terrific tale but if the other novels are anywhere near the quality of this one, the collection will be one of the year¿s best. The story line is a crisp military relationship drama that emphasizes the characters while showcasing what our real heroes must do to thrive in a world where ¿out of bed¿ (even when not dodging bullets) is the norm. The lead couple is a delightful pair and the support cast (the military brass, the hospital staff, and his nephew and her aunt), enhance the look inside the lead pair. This is a strong tale that fans will enjoy, but note that I am biased because I hold in high esteem Ms. Forster writing skills.

As usual, great story! Love everything by this author. Loved the characters and the chemistry. Oh and Ricky stole my heart from the beginning!

I was completely disappointed in this book. I have read this author before and this was a let down. The writing, in my opinion, was terrible. The author used too many big words. I also thought the dialog was unrealistic. I don't know anyone that speaks like that. This left the characters box-like. The subplot ended disappointingly. I thought the entire thing was a bit unrealistic.
