Some girls just can't say no. Frankie McConnell is one of those girls.
Frankie was thrilled to be asked to join the Women's Air Ferry Squadron in 1943. Finally, she had a chance to be useful in the war that was tearing the world apart. She went to Newcastle, Delaware expecting action and adventure and instead found boredom, ferrying primary trainers from factories to air fields. Not nearly as exciting as the air shows she used to fly with her father, playing a German Baron to her father's American Ace. Frankie tries to fit in and
do her job, but she can't refuse a challenge. So when an Air Corps captain dares her to enter a dogfighting contest, she wins the trophy, but loses her job.
Not wanting to face her family at home, she accepts a new job with the Marine Corps Women's Reserve. Frankie's duties are more suited to her skills, but she still can't resist a challenge, whether it comes from a Navy pilot poking fun at the Marine Corsairs or the rogue commander of the Pacific Posse, Major Jack Layton.
They probably won't save the world. Maybe they can save each other.
What if they don't? Will she shoot him?
This is a straightforward romance, but you've got to have some conflict here that ISN"T 'woman in a man's job'. She needs to be conflicted, or beset by some dilemma otherwise it's just pie in the sky.
