Helicopter pilot Lt. Sara Denning joins a navy battle group with little fanfare--and that's just the way she likes it. After her brother Ian's tragic death, her career path seemed obvious: step into his shoes and enter the Naval Academy, despite her fear of water. Sara's philosophy is simple--blend in, be competent, and above all, never do anything to stand out as a woman in a man's world. Somewhere along the way, Sara lost herself--her feminine, easygoing soul is now buried under so many defensive layers, she can't reach it anymore. When she meets strong, self-assured Lt. Eric Marxen, her defenses start to falter. Eric coordinates flight operations for a Navy SEAL team that requests Sara as the exclusive pilot. This blatant show of favoritism causes conflict with the other pilots; Sara's sexist boss seems intent on making her life miserable, and her roommate and best friend, the only other woman on the ship, is avoiding her. It doesn't help that her interactions with Eric leave her reeling. The endgame of the SEALs' mission is so secret, even Sara doesn't know the reason behind her mandated participation. Soon, though, the training missions become real, and Sara must overcome her fears before they plunge her into danger. When Sara's life is on the line, can she find her true self again and follow the orders of her heart before it is too late? Anne A. Wilson's Hover is a thrilling, emotional women's journey written by a groundbreaking former navy pilot.show more

Written with grit, moxie, and heart, HOVER dials up a memorable heroine thrown into a unique, exhilarating setting with an equally heart-pounding love interest. Lt. Sara Denning will charm and impress readers in a debut that is thrilling, romantic, and flat out cinematic. Michelle Gable, internationally bestselling author of A Paris Apartment An engaging new voice, crackling with authenticity. CJ Lyons, New York Times bestselling author of Farewell to Dreams Dancing backwards in high heels is nothing next to trying to make it as a female helicopter pilot in a very male world, especially when the stakes are life and death. Heart-pounding action and a heroine to root for, plus the one soldier who might be man enough to win her--you won't want to put this one down. Sophie Littlefield, national bestselling author of The Missing Place Wilson offers a must-read that merges suspense, intrigue, and romance in a dynamic setting.
