The Story Behind A Darling Aviator by Lark Holiday

13 Mar 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write A Darling Aviator?

Of all the characters in my first novel, A Darling Handyman, I definitely received the most comments about Mac—and he wasn’t even a main character! (Don’t believe me? Read the reviews!) But I am totally on the same page as my readers. Even before I finished writing that book, I knew the next story in the Darling Man series had to be Mac’s. Love him or hate him, something about a strong character makes for a great read.

Mac is who he is, no apologies, which made me feel like I was writing about a real person. That being said, I think I was as surprised as he was about the woman he ended up with! A grumpy pilot and a glamorous influencer?! Tell me more!

It was so much fun to spend time with Mac and Elle. I hope that comes through on the page, and that I was able to do their story justice. It was so fulfilling to see them finally get their happily ever after once and for all.

A Darling Aviator has everything you can expect in a Darling Men novel: more humor than heat, closed door and curse words, quirky locals, and a cute dog. But it is also a story about being brave enough to live the life you want and honoring your heart’s desires. I hope you thoroughly enjoy a return to Alaska in A Darling Aviator! Welcome back!
