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?
