As Pilot in Command at Air Station, Sitka, Alaska, Lt. Dane Banner is comfortable taking control. Analyzing the crap out of every emergency to avoid mistakes means that his crew goes home at the end of their shift to kiss the people they love. Being in control keeps everyone safe, happy, alive. Dane likes his life that way.
But when June Harvey, his best friend's widow, blows back into Sitka, desperate to pick up the broken shards of her life, his internal control panel goes as haywire as if she's an electrical storm. He can barely navigate which way is up. Now that she wants to lean on him as if he were her only friend, how can he tell her he's been in love with her forever? And that's not the worst secret he's determined to keep from her.
Any sane pilot would see the danger coming and fly like hell to avoid it.
So why does he long to head straight into her storm?
