A Spencer Tracy/Katharine Hepburn style romance between a transsexual woman and a transgender man, both pilots, who play, fight and argue on their way to falling in love at a major air show.
Lourdes is a Hispanic American, long term transsexual, ashamed of who she is. Desperately needing to be as female as any other, her standards are high, too high to be achieved, so she lives in anguish, hating anything that would diminish her as she sees it.
Jim, a well-adjusted, well-liked transgender man whom Lourdes meets at the air show, has had issues in his own life and doesn’t need her to add to them. Where Lourdes initially blasts him hard, his gentle nature wins her over, and in the end, she succumbs to him. He becomes her savior. This is her growth process.
Falling in Love has one of the two most beautiful endings in my novels to date. While it sizzles at times, Falling in Love is represented in such a way that, I believe, if it were made into a film, could be shown on prime-time broadcast television. Lourdes and Jim are personally unwilling to use harsh language, and while they are eventually open with each other, one can sense they are modest in how they share their intimate moments. The emphasis is on romance, not sex. It’s on watching them fight through their issues to fall in love, not on anger or divisiveness.
Falling in Love is set in the world of flight. Cliquish terminology and phrasing are used, though explained, throughout. If you’re a pilot of light general aviation airplanes, you will feel at home in the novel. If you’re not a pilot, then you may fit right in with those who are by the time you’re done reading.

About the Author
Some Aimee Norin novels are listed in the ADULT SECTION, and may not be visible in the General section. Please unlock the ADULT SECTION to see them all. I am an advocate for trans people, for transgender, transsexual, gender non-conforming and LGBTQI living. I not only write for entertainment but to address issues felt by minorities, which includes trans people as a whole and also minority groups within—views both popular and unpopular—with an underlying message throughout of the value of life, mutual acceptance, and mutual respect. PLEASE NOTE: My characters are usually in some form of conflict, working through issues, struggling with society or sometimes even with their own demons in an effort to find love and respect, happiness in life. A novel may walk with a character through her own hell, then glimpse by the end a new way for her to engage in her life—or an idea may be expressed one way, in one novel, only to be expressed differently in another novel, by the same or another character—how people's views change over time, in different situations, or as seen by others. Some novels are happy for the most part, such as "Out of the Closet," "Falling in Love" and "Transmutation"; "Falling in Love" is particularly romantic; and "Trans Magic" and "Transmutation" are also the funnier two, through with some serious chapters. "Transmutation" is a trans utopian future. "Hate Crimes," however, is a combination of a dream come true, hate crimes, and a plea for peace. Finally, I must note: I think of myself more as a storyteller than a writer. Transitions are expensive, sometimes costing several multiples of an annual salary, and sometimes the treatment industry charges way too much. In addition, when someone is hurting because she needs to change, or when someone's social or financial life has been affected in relation to a transition, money can be even harder to come by. In order to keep these books coming for free, I usually do not use an outside editor as I make no money off these books at all and editors are costly. I spend a great deal of time with each novel, but if a mistake is noted, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. Without an editor, all these novels are all a work-in-progress, and I do depend on feedback about content. I do respond to such feedback in an effort to please, and go back and revise the novels. When enough modifications are made, I may put a "V" for Version on the cover to quickly indicate. Thank you, and blessings to all, Aimee Norin

I figured stick with it and after 300 pages figured what was wrong with her then the thoughts and stuff hurt my head following it. Could not finish
A very unusual book that leaves you thinking about things.
