Just your standard brainy scientist girl who needs a new kidney meets tall dark and silent NASCAR crew chief, and they spend a couple hundred pages lying to each other about everything, before chastely kissing and planning to have babies at the end.

It’s actually a not-too-bad romance, writing wise. It just did a really good job of illustrating why straight romance is not for me. The gender dynamics were horrifying. That whole girl takes delight in all the men admiring her new push up bra, combi

This book would have been much better if the author had deleted the entire Cole/Isabel romance and fleshed out the storyline of the main two characters (Kim/Wade) instead. SO much time was wasted with Cole and Isabel and I had no interest in them.

It also feels like the last 2 pages were so rushed and the ending felt like it was meant to be a few chapters longer but got all condensed into 2 pages. The entire story centers around Kim's illness and how she is not high up on the transplant list and

I could not finish this book. I have picked up 7 books, getting half way through a few of them and then putting them back down.

As far as NASCAR romances go, I think Pamela Britton has the market cornered on this one. Her technical observations of the stock car are fantastic, but she doesn't overdo it. Which is nice.

This book was a bad mash up of stem cell research and sponsorship...gahhh, boring.

I read the last page, just to make sure and it ends in a most saccharine sweet way. Ick.

This book is hilarious in a way I'm pretty sure it's not meant to be. The drama is of the melo persuasion and the lines are delightfully cheesy. I had my roommate near tears reading parts of this to her out loud. It makes me forgive Harlequin a little for trying to tie all the NASCAR romances together.

This one was okay. It was the first of the NASCAR romance novels I read, and it was not the best nor the worst. Didn't hate or like the characters. It'd do for a quick read if nothing else is around, but don't spend money on it.
I liked the tension and drama that really built up throughout the book however the ending is rushed and I think the story could have been drawn out further, or just not included Isabel and Clay and just focused on Kim and Wade...

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.

I like to set aside some of my writing time for experimental projects - I'm currently trying my hand at a humorous women's fiction novel, and I also finished a Young Adult manuscript.
