Olivia Patterson is a rolling stone...or maybe a flying one. As a flight attendant, she lives in the air. She's never put down roots, and liked it that way...until now. When she touches down on the ground, she wants there to be someone waiting for her. For now, she'd settle for a bit of no-strings-attached company.
