Murder has them on track for a head-on crash. Can love set them straight?
She's the heiress to a racing fortune, but the police suspect she killed to get it. He's the jaded ex-cop hired to keep her safe, or put her behind bars. Then passion sends them into a spin, with danger close behind … a race they'll only win if they trust each other.
Julia Cameron just inherited a billion-dollar auto-racing empire, but she'd rather have her adoptive parents back. And now she's under police investigation for their deaths. Once a street kid fighting to survive, Julia retained a deep distrust of the law. As for the hunky, former cop who's her new bodyguard—he's a distraction she can't afford in her race to find the killer.
Roane Jameson survived years on the police force and a nasty divorce, so when it comes to women, he's burnt out. He's convinced Julia's trying to get away with murder. But the poor little rich girl turns out to be a smart, savvy woman who’ll do whatever it takes to protect those she loves, even allow a former cop into her life. And running this close tempts him to find out just what's under her gorgeous exterior.
But Roane must keep his hands on the wheel—because if Julia's innocent, the murderer is still on the loose … and he'll try to knock her off the track next. Locked in a deadly race, Roane and Julia must work as a team to find the killer. But driving blind and racing the clock, can they reach the winner's circle?
