Sample text:

Katerina Carter glanced over at her boyfriend, Jace Burton. He ran his hand absently through his dark curly hair, head bowed, as he concentrated on his notes.

Dennis Batchelor had sent his private airplane to Vancouver to collect them. The billionaire environmentalist had handpicked journalist Jace to write his biography. He had insisted on meeting him at his remote mountain lodge in Southeastern British Columbia’s Selkirk Mountains.

Neither Kat nor Jace had flown on a private plane before. Kat couldn’t take her eyes off the view as the twin engine Cessna gained altitude and left Vancouver’s glass and concrete cityscape behind. Jace, on the other hand, remained completely oblivious to their luxurious surroundings. They were the only passengers on board.

The plane’s cavernous interior was opulent compared to a commercial airplane. Kat stretched her legs out and was surprised they didn’t hit the seat in front of her. In fact, there wasn’t a seat in front of her. The plush furniture was more like something you’d see in an executive office or a living room than a typical airplane interior. The cabin furnishings included a rectangular oak table and chairs, similar to a pared-down boardroom. Kat and Jace sat in two of the half dozen reclining leather armchairs with a table between them. It sure beat flying economy.

Kat looked forward to the weekend adventure. She was between cases in her forensic accounting and fraud investigation practice and business had slowed with Christmas approaching. She couldn’t wait for her mini vacation in the mountains. With just two weeks before Christmas, she was getting in the festive spirit.
