Trisha Grove enjoys her job as a pilot for Boswell International, but she realizes something is still missing from her life: her family. She is ready to call it quits and head back home to Wyoming, where her father lives, but her last flight for Boswell ends with an unplanned trip out of this world. Trisha isn't sure at first what's real and what isn't; all she knows is she is determined to get back to her dad - no matter what it takes. Kelan Reykill is the fourth son in the royal line of Valdier. Commander of the V'ager, one of the largest Valdier warships, he prides himself on his strict self-discipline, his ability to remain in command in any situation, and his skill at handling any challenge. That is until he meets a stubborn human female from the primitive planet his older brother sought refuge on. Now all he can think about is how to get her into his bed and under his control while staying in one piece. But when Trisha is taken from him, Kelan must track her to the ends of the universe and beyond. He knows one thing: She is his true mate, and he will kill anyone who tries to harm her. 1.

An extraordinary firsthand account of the Battle of Midway by one of its key participants, timed to the 75th anniversary: American dive-bomber pilot "Dusty" Kleiss helped sink three Japanese warships (including two aircraft carriers), received the Navy Cross, and is credited with playing a decisive individual role in determining the outcome of a battle that is considered a turning point in World War II. In Never Call Me a Hero, Captain Kleiss (USN, ret.), a US Navy SBD Dauntless dive-bomber pilot with the USS Enterprise's Scouting Squadron Six, tells his full story for the first time, offering an unprecedentedly intimate look at the battle that reversed America's fortunes after the tragedy of Pearl Harbor. Kleiss is notable for being the only pilot from either fleet on those battle-scarred days of legend, June 4-7, 1942, to land hits on three different enemy ships. On the first day of the Battle of Midway, Kleiss planted bombs on two Japanese carriers - Kaga and Hiryu - sinking both, and later, on June 6, he scored a direct hit on a Japanese cruiser, the Mikuma, which also sank. In his 1967 book Incredible Victory, Walter Lord asserted that the margins of US victory at Midway were so thin that individual participants could rightfully say that their actions turned the tide. Given the amount of destruction inflicted upon the Japanese that day, Kleiss may have been the most important pilot in the air. It is no stretch to say that without him, the Battle of Midway may not have been won, altering the course of the conflict and history itself, for according the US Navy's historians, "The Battle of Midway was far more than an epic WWII clash somewhere far away at sea. It was an American victory that forever changed the course of world history. This is the battle that turned the tide of the war." But this is not only the memoir of one man; it is the history of this battle and its legacy. In only five 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Ortego, Cassandra Campbell, Patrick Lawlor.
