Flight Risk by Barbara Valentin




Flight Risk
An Assignment:  Romance Novel, Book 4

Barbara Valentin
Romantic Comedy / Chick Lit


When Aubrey Thomas, a phobic travel writer, must choose between jumping to what she considerers certain death from a skydiving static line or sinking even deeper into debt in the unemployment line, she scrambles to find someone—anyone!—who can help her overcome her debilitating fear of heights. 

Enter John Trelawney, a charming window washer who thinks nothing of dangling by a cable fifty stories up and claims he can cure her. Everything about John makes Aubrey nervous... including the way her heart kicks into overdrive whenever he's around. But, at the end of her rope, she takes him up on his offer. 

Can he really help her get over her fear of heights? Or will Aubrey find herself free falling...possibly even in love with him?

Excerpt:   

 "So, what's the game plan?" Aubrey asked, still deciding if she had the nerve to follow her best friend’s advice.
What you need is a one-nighter. With a really hot stranger.
John turned to face her, those caramel-colored eyes smoldering in the streetlamp glow. After looking at her a good long while, he said, "You're coming upstairs. With me."
Right.
But all she could do was grip the steering wheel even harder and avert her gaze to the car parked directly in front of hers.
Damn that Teddy.
Everything her best friend had said earlier was spot on…and Aubrey knew it.
While she was still deciding if she had the nerve to go through with it, she felt John reach over and slide his warm, strong hand behind her neck, rubbing it ever so gently.
Her pulse quickening, she drew a deep breath and squirmed, "John, I—"
Before she could finish, he withdrew it. "I understand. Be careful going home. I'll call you first thing, all right?"
There was no mistaking the disappointment in his voice. All she could do was give him a quick nod.
Then she saw him reach for his door handle. "Thanks for the ri—"
"Ya know what? Yes."
He stopped and looked at her. "Yes?"
Turning, she locked her eyes onto his. "Yes, I want to come upstairs with you. But, again, no—"
John reached behind her, grabbed her bag, and scraped out, "No relationship. Got it."
