Sara Charles is striking out on her own. With her dad out of commission, Charles Air has only one helicopter left—and only Sara to fly charters. With the family business in jeopardy, Sara needs all the clients she can get and the newest one is New York Saints team surgeon, Lucas Angelo. When an unexpected flirtation escalates into a night of pure blind passion, Sara is in agony over what she believes was extremely poor judgment on her part. She wants nothing more than to avoid Lucas. And keep her business her business. But she needs him—in more ways than one.
LEAD TO A FIELD OF DREAMS?
But there is a catch: Lucas also needs Sara. Spring training is upon him, and his schedule is madness. So he asks Sara to be his personal pilot. It's an offer she can't refuse. She intends to keep him at arm's length—especially when she discovers just what different lives they have. Little does Sara know that, for Lucas, the only thing more important than business is pleasure. He only plays to win. And he intends to hit it out of the park…
In the enjoyable second book about the owners of the New York Saints baseball team (after The Devil in Denim), Scott pairs co-owner Lucas Angelo, an enigmatic doctor, with feisty helicopter pilot Sara Charles. Sara's trying valiantly to save her family's helicopter chartering company when she meets Lucas, who hires her several times when his regular pilot is unavailable. Sara thinks he's flat-out gorgeous, but she considers him far out of her league. Lucas is terrified of flying after being medevac'd out of a deadly accident while in college. But he trusts his no-nonsense pilot and wants to get to know her in every sense of the word. After hiring Sara as the team's helicopter pilot, Lucas sets out to win her heart, even if his snobbish, old-money family and Sara's working-class Staten Island roots seem impossible to reconcile. Scott's gift for storytelling and knack for creating sympathetic characters make this a first-rate contemporary.
