"A woman in my bed is one thing. But in my cockpit? Hell, no!" --Lieutenant Nolan Galway, United States Marine Corps
Sharing flight duty with beautiful Lieutenant Rhona McGregor was dangerous. But with lives at stake in the earthquake-shattered L.A. Basin, Nolan didn't have time to argue. He needed a copilot, and he'd just have to draw on his military discipline to keep his desires in check.

Ride the Thunder
Chapter OneJanuary 7: 1600
Lieutenant Nolan Galway decided he was having a bad hair day. Actually, it was a lot worse than that. As he strode toward the Operations building at Camp Reed, the noise of helicopters and jets landing and taking off in the late afternoon hammered at his ears. Tuning out the earsplitting sounds, he tried to focus on one thing only: getting a new copilot.
As he approached the Ops building which was made of gray concrete and looked like a rectangular box with a tower sticking up at one end, he saw that it was a regular Grand Central Station today, just as it had been ever since the killer earthquake hit on New Year's Eve. From the moment that quake struck, Nolan's life and everyone else's in the surrounding southern Los Angeles area had been turned into pure chaos.

But until roads were created to take more supplies, they...
