Co-Pilot Lachlan Donaghue wakes up in hospital, a survivor of the crash of Flight HA1710, with memory loss and the suspicion that he could be at fault for the tragic accident. When everything becomes too much he is taken home to hide, back to the small Irish town he grew up in and to the home he once shared with Rory.
Rory Kendrick watches the news, sees every hour of the disaster unfold and somehow just knows that Lachlan was in the middle of it all. What he doesn’t know is that Lachlan will be forced to come back home to hide and to heal. Lachlan needs a friend, not a lover, but sometimes the lines are just too blurred to make any sense.

For a short story, Retrograde packs a punch in content. Lachlan survives a plane crash, but has no memories of what happened before or during the flight. As the co-pilot, the “authorities” control who gets to see him at the hospital and who isn’t allowed. Even though they had a painful break up, Rory wants to be on the list of allowed visitors. Lachlan wants to see him, too, but it takes a while for Rory to get in to his room. Once there, Rory vows to protect the man he loves – even if he believes Lachlan no longer loves him back. He takes him back to the farm where they lived together so that Lachlan can relax and recover without all of the chaos of the investigation surrounding him. There is so much more to this story than a plane crash and a break-up. I adored Lachlan and Rory’s love for each other and how deep it went. Rory pushed aside his heartbreak to help the man he loved knowing that once Lachlan got his memory back he might be alone, again. They each face their past hurts which only intensifies how emotionally attached they are to each other I absolutely LOVE this couple and wish the story went on even longer just so I could spend more time with them. *I received a complimentary copy for review
4-1/2 stars In Retrograde, we meet Lachlan and Rory, former lovers that we know should not be so much of the "former" because it's pretty obvious that the love never left. Despite Lachlan's moments of self-doubt, it's pretty easy to just know he wasn't at fault when it came to the plane crash where he was the co-pilot. Retrograde is a beautifully written tale of tragedy bringing together those that let their stubbornness keep them apart. Another great turnout by Miss Scott with characters you want to know, even the airline liaison you want to knock down a few pegs, and a love that you know will be rekindled, and a story you can't wait to see just how it all plays out.
