Derek erupts from the water shaking his head, tossing water everywhere. My jaw drops to my chest. “Man, the water’s awesome. You should join me, Goddess. It’s great. You probably need to cool off, too.” He smiles. “You’re turning kind of red.” Then he winks. Winks? Does he know I’ve been drooling over every hard inch of him? Please tell me he can’t read my thoughts. Crap, I can’t ever take off my shades or he’ll know everything from my dilating, bugging eyes.
“Did you call me Goddess?” I frown.
“Yep,” he says, climbing on top of a full length float. Put that body back under the water.
Really, Lisa, do you really want it hidden from your view? Be honest.
“Isn’t that what Lance calls you?”
“Yes, but that’s his nickname for me, not something anyone else uses.”
“Why not? Does it offend you, Lisa, Goddess Divine?” He smirks, with a twinkle in his eye, before sliding on his aviator sun glasses, hiding his baby blues from my view.
“Goddess Divine definitely offends me, smart ass,” I sass.
He laughs. “Smart ass? Love it.” His hand scoops water and splashes it across the length of his firm frame.
“You would,” I say, rolling my eyes. “You, flyboys, all have huge egos.”
“Flyboys. Hmm, well, we definitely have huge somethings.” He smiles. “I can’t see your eyes, but from the arch of your brow above your glasses, you’re rolling your eyes at me.”
“You don’t miss a trick. Do you?” I sass, while misting my body with suntan oil.
His voice lowers and grows thick with desire, “Not when it comes to you, Goddess Divine.”
Okay, seriously, I think he’s hitting on me. If I could see his eyes I would know…for sure.
Unable to find the right words, I watch him paddle his float to the edge of the pool, grab his tanning oil, and oh dear me rub oil across his chest, to his abs, and down his sexy path of happiness, which OMG is bulging. His glasses slide slowly down the bridge of his nose where I find piercing blue eyes devouring my breasts. Unconsciously, my hand runs across my perspiring chest. His eyes grow darker and larger, along with other delectable areas of his body. I move my hands to my stomach and I’ll be damned his eyes follow them. His intense gaze moves further south until my right knee unwittingly drops open revealing the wet spot on my swimsuit bottom. His tongue slowly licks across the entire length of his bottom lip. I quickly reach for my iced tea. Cool off, Lisa! My chest heaves. My breath catches. My crotch aches. I reposition my thrusting hips. Derek reaches inside his trunks, never removing his eyes from my thighs, and resituates his now full length hard on. Brother dear is a whole lot of trouble—T-R-O-U-B-L-E—and needs to return to San Antonio and maybe even the Middle East…soon! In fact, now!

The exciting conclusion of The Flyboy Trilogy! Lisa’s memory has returned along with her burning desire for wickedly hot Captain Lance Miller. Passion soars when the two unite. Lance is thrilled his goddess finally remembers him, but which Lisa is coming home with him? In some ways he is eager for the return of his original, sweet, loving Lisa, but he also adores his new and improved, sexy, opinionated, wild tiger. They are settling into their smooth sailing, happily reacquainted life when Lance’s flyboys are called to Afghanistan. This disruption is nothing compared to the turbulent arrival of Lance’s insanely hot, long lost half-brother, fighter pilot Derek Fuller. Derek’s arrival may cause Lisa’s path to be completely rerouted.
“I’m telling you this was definitely a rollercoaster of emotions. A great conclusion to The Flyboy Trilogy.”
Step by firm step he approaches me, backing me against the wall. “Lisa, I can only be so strong.” He captures my wrists, holding them firmly above my head. Staring vehemently into my eyes, he continues, “I’m not a saint. I love my brother, but when it comes to you I lose my mind and my honor.” His eyes lower to my heaving chest. After dropping his head back to look at the ceiling, he returns his gaze and continues, “I’m begging you to stop whatever this teasing torment is, because if you keep this up we’re both going to wake with regrets.”
His forearms rest against the wall. Fanning his warm, labored breathing across my face, his hips press firmly against me. The heat of his rock solid erection between my thighs excites and lubricates every blessed inch of me. His head drops to my shoulder. Against my ear, he whispers, “You’re my kryptonite.”
“My hearts pounding,” I reply.
“Sweetheart, mine’s been pounding ever since I first laid eyes on you.”
I whisper, “You really want me…and think about me?”
With his forehead pressed to mine, he replies, “If you’re asking me how many times you’ve entered my thoughts I would have to say once, because, quite honestly, you never really left my mind from our very first encounter.”
“How much of what you say is bullshit and how much is sincere?”
He tosses his head back and laughs, before placing his lips directly in front of mine. “When it comes to you, Lisa, it’s all factual.”
His crystal blue eyes turn dark. “Well, that’s the pot calling the kettle black.”
His breath brushes warmly against my lips. “Are you going to kiss me?” I ask.
“I want to.”
“Then do it. I miss being kissed.”
