The Flyer

by: Marjorie Jones

Book 2 in the Lighthorseman Series

Paul Campbell has fought the Turks, Germans, and the occasional rogue crocodile. A confirmed bachelor, veteran of the Great War and Jack-of-all-Trades in the rough country of Western Australia, he is free to live the rest of his life in peace. He has only one goal: to make life easier on the residents of the Outback by flying medicine, supplies, and the occasional letter to those who live in Australia’s sprawling Interior. That is, until a wounded woman lands on his doorstep begging for a gentle hand and a warm kiss–even if she doesn’t know it yet.

Marjorie Jones has been writing since she formed her first coherent sentence. She fell in love with characters like Peter, Susan, Edmond and Lucy of The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis (she planned to marry Prince Caspian before she met her real hero) and never looked back.

Discovering romance novels at the tender age of 16, she penned her first complete novel at the age of 19. Her works encompass historical, contemporary and paranormal romance.

Married to Keith for nearly 17 years, she is the mother of three children. Her eldest son currently serves in the United States Navy, while her two daughters attend Junior High and High School. Originally hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia, she makes her home now in the panoramic desert community of Price, Utah with her husband, daughters, two horses and two of the most uppity, do-not-cross-this-line tom-cats in the history of the world.

Awards and Nominations

Congratulations to Marjorie Jones for winning the 2005 Isolde Carlson Award for Excellence in Writing & The 2005 Utah Writer of the Year!

"Romance is more than fantasy," stated Marjorie recently. "Romance is hope. It's a place we can go to be all of the things the world has told us not to dream for."

About This Book
Overview

Paul Campbell has fought the Turks, Germans, and the occasional rogue crocodile. A confirmed bachelor, veteran of the Great War and Jack-of-all-Trades in the rough country of Western Australia, he is free to live the rest of his life in peace. He has only one goal: to make life easier on the residents of the Outback by flying medicine, supplies, and the occasional letter to those who live in Australia’s sprawling Interior. That is, until a wounded woman lands on his doorstep begging for a gentle hand and a warm kiss–even if she doesn’t know it yet.

A new doctor, Helen Stanwood leaves the relative comfort of her San Francisco home with a mission. She will abandon and forget the pain of her former existence by devoting herself to helping those in need. But when she arrives in Australia she is faced with the realization that she can’t run away from herself, her past, or . . .

The Flyer.

"The surprise finale was enough to make me love the story even more! Kudos, Ms. Jones." ~ Brenda Talley, The Romance Studio

"While the romance between Paul and Helen is the central plot, and their interactions certainly sizzle from their first meeting, it is the historical setting of The Flyer that is sheer perfection. Author Marjorie Jones brings the harsh grandeur of life in the Australian Outback and the plight of the displaced Aborigines into focus while she deftly mingles in the lingo of the Outback with that of the Roaring Twenties. She shows not only the time's clash between a man's and a woman's place, but also the extreme contrast between American high society and that of life in the Outback. No matter how browbeaten by her family and her own conscience, Helen is a woman willing to live by her own terms, and Paul is just the man to accept those terms. Their twisted paths make The Flyer interesting reading." ~ Robin Lee, Romance Reviews Today

“…Ms. Jones’ description of Australia, and its people and creatures…together makes The Flyer an interesting historical that lovers of romance will enjoy.” ~ Amelia, Joyfully Reviewed
