Nathalie Gray, author of award-winning speculative romance
The last time Elisa Derby Hawkins lost something, it was her heart, which was stomped on and fed to the jackals. She vowed to never trust again, never put anything above winning the next race, the next tournament. It's all she has left.
Then a new racer lands on her station, and he has trouble written all over his centerfold-quality body. With Kai in the races, Derby can't seem to keep her legendary focus on the finish line nor her hands to herself.
Shady dealings, sabotage, lies. With stakes at their highest, with her very heart in the balance, Derby must decide if she's ready to trust again or if winning has become so important as to deny her attraction to Kai. Because without him at her side, victory doesn't taste the same.
