Will hearts soar when pigs fly?
Alex’s job working for his family-owned radio station once took him all over the city reporting on major events—until the accident. His scars, both physical and emotional, cause him to withdraw into a self-imposed, semi-reclusive lifestyle. When his dad requests that he go to the world’s largest hot air balloon festival, he has to find the courage to break his isolation. Now he needs to find the courage to trust and love again.
Jeff had already been planning a move to Albuquerque when he lost his home, parents, and dog to a wildfire in California. To begin his new life, he agrees to help his sister and brother-in-law with their balloon at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Now he’s seen pigs fly and bees kissing, but will he find the love he’s been searching for?

“Cotton candy!” Tony bounced beside Alex as they walked to the concession area. “Can we get cotton candy, Uncle Alex?”
“If you finish your lunch.” Alex agreed.
“Me too!” Sandy said from her perch on Jeff’s shoulder.
Jeff smiled back at him, and it warmed his heart to see Jeff cradling his niece. He’d never thought he’d find someone who’d see past his scars, much less care for his sister’s kids.
They found a table and Jeff placed Sandy down in one of the chairs. “I’ll grab the lunch. What all do we want?”
“Cotton candy!” Tony bounced in his seat.
“Funnel cake,” Sandy added. Jeff laughed and ruffled Tony’s hair. “I remember your uncle saying that we needed some lunch first. How about hot dogs and hamburgers?”
“Yes, that would be good.” Alex nodded at him. “And bottled water if they have it, please.”
“I like him, Uncle Alex,” Tony said after Jeff walked off. “Is he your new boyfriend?”
Alex hesitated. He and Jeff hadn’t discussed their relationship, and even though they’d been out on a date, he wasn’t sure what their official status was. He finally settled on, “We’re dating.”
“You need to bring him to Gramma’s dinner,” Tony informed him.
