Travis McAllan is one of America's top country music stars—loved by fans, he lives the dreamed-of life of a country boy who has made it. The lifestyle of a star, however, comes at a cost, and Travis keeps his sexuality a secret until he meets Geoff Randsell. The attraction is immediate and jolts Travis from his life of pretense.
Geoff has a secret of his own—he’s in a rocky relationship, and he’s not impressed by Hollywood glitz. When he falls for Travis, Geoff is swept off his feet, and he is both dazzled by and apprehensive about the celebrity lifestyle of private planes, mansions, and travel. When a photographer sells a picture of Travis and Geoff to the tabloids, their courtship and private world comes under fire. Travis must risk his music career to be with the man he loves, and Geoff has to make the difficult choice to accept a life in the public eye. In the face of increasing pressure, Travis and Geoff must stay true to themselves to get to the altar and say “I do.”

Travis said, “My brothers and I don’t own this plane. We only charter it when we’re booked for one-night stands. The rest of the time, we have a bus.”
Before Geoff could say anything, the attendant returned with the beer and a bowl of pretzels. “Dinner will be ready in fifteen minutes, Mr. McAllan,” he informed Travis. “Just ring if you need anything else.” Then he left them alone.
“Don’t worry, Geoff. You’ll be safe with me. I wanted to have ya all to myself without my brothers and your lady friend watching.”
“What about them?” Geoff pointed toward the cockpit door and then looked behind him, where they could see the cabin attendant was preparing dinner.
“They know enough to keep quiet, and besides, it’s none of their business if I want to be with you.”
“Travis, do you do this with everyone you take out? Take them up in private planes and all? You don’t know anything about me. I know even less about you,” Geoff said.
“I aim to find out all I can about you, and in case you’re wondering about me, yes, I do like men. My brothers don’t know I’m gay, but they suspect. My oldest brother, Robbie, is cool, and he would understand, but it’s Don that I worry about. He thinks setting me up with what he calls ‘good women’ will change me, and if it doesn’t, then I face Big Jim’s wrath.”
“Who’s Big Jim, or do I not want to know?”
“He’s my uncle, and he’s a very well-known evangelist from Georgia. He’s very antigay, and if he finds out about me….” Travis drew a finger across his neck, but then patted Geoff’s hand reassuringly. “Listen, don’t worry about him. He barks but he doesn’t bite.” Travis laughed, and though Geoff wasn’t exactly comfortable, he gazed out at the purple and red-gold sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
