Five Stars! A. Burroughs on Amazon. If you...are a Humphrey Bogart/African Queen fan or an Indiana Jones/Raiders of the Lost Ark fan, you will love this book. Parnell Stillman, ace pilot, is man to the bone in a lackadaisical kind of way. He 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's 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 sly, conniving, wily do-gooder. Heroics are not his thing. Rebecca has other ideas--lots of them! All artful and disingenuous--one of which is bound to work...she hopes.

Writing for Harlequin Books Jackie Weger published more than a dozen romance novels. Weger wrote the first African-American romance published by Harlequin, A Strong and Tender Thread. She lived in St. Augustine, Florida for twelve years renovating a hundred-year-old house in historic Lincolnville, a community established by freed slaves in 1866. In 1995 she put her career on hold to care for elderly and handicapped members of her family. In 1999 she moved to Central America with her companion dog, a Shar-pei named Simon. She and Simon lived in a small Rainforest village in a thatched-roof bohio while making intrepid excursions into the Darien, the San Blas Islands, and outer islands in the Pacific. Weger also volunteered at a Sister's of Mercy mission where she taught women in poverty. Returning stateside in 2002, Weger enrolled in college, earning an AA, a BA, and in 2006 graduated summa cum laude from the University of Houston-Victoria. In 2006 Weger spent a semester at Queens College, University of London, spending free time traipsing around the U.K. and Paris. “You don’t need a hotel room in Paris—just live at the Louvre.” Jackie has only recently revived her writing career, releasing her first e-book, No Perfect Secret in July 2012. She lives in lives in Hockley, Texas with a man, a dog and several feral cats. What readers are saying about Jackie Weger's books... --The House on Persimmon Road...oozes with Southern charm.
