NASCAR: Hidden Legacies Book 3
Chad Matheson is part owner of Matheson Racing and is known as the Boss because of the way he controls everything. When he meets and marries someone after only a few days it’s all great until she says she wants to be on his team. No how, no way. Business and personal is separate in his life. Seems she couldn’t live with that idea. She wanted it all, all of him. It was a short-lived honeymoon.

I feel like this rating should come with a disclaimer. I don't consider these books to be very literary or amazing pieces of writing. I do consider them to be fun and something I can read in one day on a few plane rides. Thus I do hold them to a different standard than most books I read. I enjoyed it, I laughed a little and passed time quickly on a long layover. It was pretty good.

I write funny, tender romance novels for Harlequin Superromance and Love Inspired Historical.

My next book to be released is That New York Minute, out in April 2012.
