The last person she wanted to ask for help is the man who destroyed her father’s life.

Hot air balloon pilot Emily Kerr needs to enter a coast-to-coast race across America to raise funds and start her own ballooning business. Her only obstacle is finding a sponsor.

Reid Martin is an industrial textile manufacturer who has developed a promising high-tech material, but he needs to test it in a practical setting before selling it to the Department of Defense. With a government contract in hand, Reid can take his family company public, saving it from bankruptcy.

Despite her reservations, Emily offers Reid an enticing opportunity to get a first-hand look at what his fabric can do. He agrees to help the intriguing woman but with two stipulations:

1. She must use the balloon he constructs
2. He will accompany her on the three-week trip

While floating across the sky, Emily reluctantly accepts the appealing man’s presence while vowing not to let him touch her heart. Will Reid risk everything—including Emily’s dream and his hope of winning her love—to save his future?

Balloons, adventure and love? Sounds like a great combination!

I already knew I loved the books of Susan Carlisle and as soon as I saw this one, I had to read it. I’m hooked. This is a fantastic start to the series, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. The writing had me racing through it to see how this ended. I loved the characters and the story.

I love the enemies to lovers situation in this story. Emily wants to make her dreams come true and own a ballooning company. She can do that if she can win some ballooning competitions, but she needs a sponsor. Enter Reid. He’s got a past she doesn’t like, and they don’t get along right away. I loved that these two had to sort out their issues. I felt like I was right there with them in the balloon and could practically feel the air whooshing around me. The chemistry was great between Emily and Reid. I can’t wait for more.

If you’re interested in a great story with fun characters, then try this book by Susan Carlisle. You won’t be disappointed.
