Ladies, start your engines…

…and chase down some Zander Torris! The man is HOT! I’ve read this book and you want it. You really do.

I think every author has books that have a special feel to them—when the book stems from a writer’s passion for something, I think you can feel that as a reader. In my opinion, Mel’s had two. The first was Hot Rod Heaven, which remains one of my all-time favorite books. This is the second.

What would you do?

You’re a NASCAR fan…pretty into it, thanks to your dad. You know a lot about the drivers, the tracks, the cars. Even though you try not to, you hear the rumors and see the off-track interviews. You know the reputation of the series champ, bad-boy Zander Torris. You know he’s devastatingly good looking, and charming to boot, but with a different piece of voluptuous, blonde eye candy on his arm every weekend, you have zilch respect for him.

The only good thing you see in him is that he’s a very generous benefactor for the camp where you’re a nurse volunteer.

So when he walks into your clinic, unannounced and unexpected, and asks you—girl-next-door, unglamorous you—to that evening’s benefactor’s dinner, what do you do?

Hint, he’s not taking no for an answer, so be ready at 6…

So burn rubber and go check it out!

    :penguin: awww, thanks Shan for saying such a sweet thing about Trophy Girl (and Hot Rod Heaven). I’m totally excited about this book–I love racing, and Zander Torris was absolutely delicious to write about!

    :hide: okay, since I melt (like the wicked witch) in the spotlight, I’m off to work on my next story.:type:
