Just out - "Heads in the Clouds"
Love is in the air…
“Keep your Feet on the Ground,
Your Mind Wide Open,
Your Spirit Flying Free,
and Your Head in the Clouds.”
Can a meat-eating Texas advertising woman find love with a vegetarian Buddhist and get her pilot’s license despite interference from her wacky Arizona airpark neighbors and a high flying Alaskan Malamute?
Lia Bedford thinks she’s going to get her pilot’s license, sell her father’s Arizona airpark house, go back to helping beef producers sell meat, and probably find a guy just like the cheating husband who bankrupted her.
Seth Hartman thinks he’s come to Arizona to build a spiritual center, escape the community and wife that betrayed him, and create a new beginning much like the contemplative, vegetarian life he left.
While Lia tries to hide and Seth tries to fit in, their attraction pulls them together. Lia and Seth begin to change with help from their wacky senior citizen neighbors and a high-flying Alaskan Malamute. All they have to do is conquer the fear of flying and their fear of love.
I'm thrilled to announce the release of "Heads in the Clouds" (a revised, republished edition of Flying Free, a contemporary romance originally published in 2009 by Treble Heart). This story, set in my own Arizona neighborhood, has always been close to my heart. I enjoyed revising it and adding a second dog, a Papillion.
Connie Fisher's cover captures the spirit of the story. So if you haven't read the original Flying Free, step into my world and enjoy "Heads in the Clouds."

“There are villains. There is mystery. And there is love that overcomes all. I enjoyed …the caring group of folks in the second half of life who live on Airpark Mesa near Sedona. The Airpark folks, whose passion is flying, building and maintaining small planes, seem very real.”

“A nifty, sweet story filled with planes, airpark life and a super sexy vegan Buddhist that anyone would find hard to resist. A heart warming tale about discovering what is really important in life…..sometimes a little later than you had hoped. Creative, quirky characters really set this story alive and give it a spark. Good work Ms. Polo, a true enjoyment " ~ Seriously Reviewed
