After reading about Morgan, Noah, and Alyssa I was curious to know more about the parents that raised them. Chase and Rachel had to be strong individuals to raise such strong, proud, and independent children.
Chase Trayhern was a pilot in Korea in 1950 and strongly believed that women had no place in the war. Rachel Mackenzie, on the other hand, believed strongly that her talents as a nurse were needed. Chase is lucky that she is there because he ends up needing her more than once. Trapped behind enemy lines Chase needed Rachel to help him get them to safety. Chase has a head injury that makes him weak and dependent on Rachel. There are explosions of all kinds that surround them both literally and figuratively. They are both strong willed and the result is clashing tempers and red hot passion. It is hilarious sometimes to think that they need each other to survive long enough to get out of enemy territory, but first they must survive each other.
I loved reading the story of Rachel and Chase. I thought it was great that Lindsay McKenna was able to tell their story after introducing us to their children in previous books. I can not wait to read the rest of her books. Thanks for such a great series.
