Reading a Valentines Book? I am.....Racing Hearts

I work next door to a Barnes and Noble which is a very dangerous thing and this caught my eye.  I'm such a fan of Vicki Lewis Thompson's contemporary romance.  Plus the fact that a few years ago I met VLT and her lovely daughter Audrey.  What a pair of incredible women.  I'm for sure going yo read Vicky's story from this book and when I get the time, finish the other aurhors as my tbr pile if growing.

Racing Hearts Book Description:
by Vicki Lewis Thompson and Nancy Warren and Dorien Kelly

She's plotted the course

Car chief Roni Kenway has a plan. She'll save her racing team and (hopefully) convince her crew chief, Judd Timmons, that she's the perfect mix of business and pleasure. But will she coast down Victory Lane…or crash into the wall?

She's in Daytona

Haunted by a sadistic book about last-chance love, Lucy Vanderwal hopes a trip to Daytona will end with love. But when she discovers her "last chance" guy is a lemon, Lucy meets rookie driver Sawyer Patton…and learns even a late starter can be a winner!

And she's behind the wheel!

Driver Megan Carter just got back from a dream vacation—sun, sand and a sizzling fling with Chris Donahue. Now all she needs is to prove herself on the race track. But how can she do that when Chris turns up in her garage—in her real life—and says he's there to stay?

Dear Reader,

I'm a NASCAR convert. I confess that until diving into this story, I knew very little about NASCAR. But as the proud owner of a hot little two-seater sports car, I was more than willing to learn about fast cars and the daredevils who drive them.

Am I glad I did! I bought videos, pestered friends, researched online and bought NASCAR for Dummies by the intrepid Mark Martin. I was in total immersion mode. I couldn't quite fit in a trip to Daytona for research, so I did the next best thing and looked for the biggest, baddest flat screen I could find, which turned out to be at my local sports bar.

And now I get it! I understand why men cheer and women swoon. This is one fascinating sport packed with thrills, chills and…in the case of Roni and Judd, the perfect environment for a budding romance. NASCAR rocks!

Speedily yours,
Vicki Lewis Thompson
From VLT’s newsletter:

All you NASCAR fans out there know that Valentine’s Day, 2010, means . . . DAYTONA!!! Guess what it also means? RACING HEARTS will be out! A year ago I was sitting in a sports bar watching the big race on a huge screen and taking notes for my novella. This year when you hear Drivers, start your engines, RACING HEARTS will be available, with stories by me, Dorien Kelly and Nancy Warren. Isn’t life terrific?
