It's Fiction - Crosswind by G.L. Ross
People often assume a story-line or character in a novel is representative of the author. After releasing “Turbulent Passion” I had phone calls and text messages from people as far back as high school, women asking if I was Lisa, men wanting to take me out after reading the sex scenes, family members asking if I had been assaulted! It’s FICTION I reiterated.
As one friend, a male friend, said to me “those thoughts have to be in your mind somewhere.” Yes, I literally laughed out loud as I pleaded the fifth. I think most authors put some part of themselves in each book, whether it be the storyline or a character. Obviously, being a flight attendant gave me insight into the world of aviation, but I had to step out of my comfort zone and research the Air Force reserves and combat.
My inspirational romance, “The Strength of Love,” is built upon a prayer I prayed in my twenties and the fact God hears our prayers, but doesn’t always answer them the way we intended. Lisa, in The Flyboy Trilogy, is naïve, as I was in my twenties, and a flight attendant, but that pretty much is all of me there is within her creation. Her best friend, the energizer bunny, is most definitely based on my best friend. The rest of the characters are unique mixtures of different people and personalities meshed together.
I laugh when I’m out with friends and someone comments, “Watch what you’re saying it may end up in a book” or they do something and reply, “That needs to be in a book, Gayle.” Yes, beware of authors in your midst, but please remember it’s fiction!

Lisa’s memory has returned along with her burning desire for insanely 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 long lost half-brother, fighter pilot Derek Fuller. Derek’s arrival may cause Lisa’s path to be completely rerouted.

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, mines 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.”
