Jasper wasn't the only one who had been attracted to Lily, the beautiful young flight attendant who worked on his crew. His co aviator was infatuated with her as well.

Well, it is not really much of a problem except for the fact that they do not want anyone to know about it, especially his fellow aviators and her fellow flight attendants, not yet. So they keep their trysts a secret from the crew, but one person (his co aviator)catches them.
What is their reaction? Do they get to keep their marriage a secret, and allow their role playing to spice up their marriage with passionate pleasures, or are they ratted out?
What begins as a battle of wills soon turns into a struggle of emotions as Cassandra finds herself falling in love with the Duke. Will she make it back or choose to stay with the man she has come to love?

You make time for what is important. Even love.
