Let me introduce you to Parnell Stillman, ace pilot and man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way. He has a quirky sense of independence, a poor man’s sense of budget and a manner of dress that would drive a mother crazy. You know that kind of man I mean. Every motorized machine he owns is pristine, but his socks don’t match.
Five Stars! If you…are a Humphrey Bogart/African Queen fan or an Indiana Jones/Raiders of the Lost Ark fan, you will love this book. ~ A. Burroughs on Amazon.
Parnell Stillman has the ability to fly through anything except solid mountain. He lives alone because people are not to be trusted—especially women. Flying is his high road until one sleet-filled morning—it isn’t. Mischance forces his plane down in a frozen wilderness. He can survive, but his live cargo is another matter—an annoying social worker and five orphans—the most irksome freight he’ has ever hauled in his life. Rebecca Hollis is determined to force the obnoxious, disagreeable, self-centered pilot to do whatever is necessary to insure the survival and rescue of the orphans…Even if it means making the noble gesture of keeping her mouth shut—or other womanly things. But the pilot isn’t having it. No way. No how. No time. He’d rather dance with a grizzly or wrestle a puma than give his heart over to a conniving, wily do-gooder. Heroics is not his thing. Rebecca Hollis has other ideas—lots of them! All artful and disingenuous—one of which is bound to work… She hopes.
