cover reveal, Excerpt, New Book

Fast Lane

Hello dear readers and thank you again to Kelsey for hosting me.

Kees with Australian V8 racing heroes, Garth Tander.

When I created Calhoun Customs Garage, I wanted at least one of the children to be a racing car driver. Having started the series with the eldest sibling, Chase and featuring middle brother, Mason, I figured I’d go to the end of the line for book 2, Fast Lane, and write a story about the youngest Calhoun. Of all five siblings, Trinity was the hardest one to write. She’s a hothead, runs on adrenaline and racing fuel, and seldom passes up on a dare. Poor Reece, he’s in for a rough ride.

Trinity comes crashing into Reece’s life at a time when he’s struggling to comes to terms with having to be a single-parentto his godson, Tyler. Our hero and heroine have both loved and lost someone special to them, both are learning the importance of family strength. And, with a dare or two thrown in, who can resist a ride in the fast lane on their bumpy road to a happy-ever-after?

I would recommend that the books are read in order of release as you will meet Mason from book 1, Overdrive, again in book 2, and the lead up to his story in book 3, Burnout, is littered throughout the first two releases. Book 3, Burnout, is due for release a little later in 2019. Happy reading!


It was hard to play it cool when his heart pounded so hard he was sure she could see it beating out of his chest. Reece had known this moment would come, had tried not to think too much on it since he’d stepped through the doors of Calhoun Customs at Mason’s invitation. 

In a racing suit, she’d been hot stuff. In summer shorts and a wisp of a tank top thing, she was a volcanic eruption looking to pour lava all over him. And equally as dangerous and destructive. So, no matter how eye-poppingly gorgeous she was, he wouldn’t kiss her.

And that was like telling himself not to breathe, because he’d wanted to taste her lips again since he’d waved goodbye to her trackside. Besides, he owed her one, didn’t he? A dare was a dare after all. Reece stepped around Mason and cupped Trinity’s face between his hands, his gaze holding hers captive. 

“Hello, Trouble.”

With love comes a little overhauling …

Ex NASCAR race king, Marty Calhoun, has built a legacy for his family, and now it’s time to round them up and bring them home to claim it. Each of his five children have hearts in need of overhauling. They all have hard lessons to learn. The one thing Marty wants most is to see his children find happiness and love at Calhoun Customs Garage.


Trinity Calhoun is a name everyone knows on the race circuit, but her days in the hot seat are numbered. She’s tired of the limelight, meaningless relationships and long hours behind the wheel. When her father calls her home, she’s ready. She slips right back into the family business, finishing off the custom car projects her father has lined up. But racing is in her blood and she’s lured back to risking her life on the hot rod drag strips outside of town. It’s there she meets paramedic, Reece Balmain, who has her re-thinking the road her life is taking.

Reece Balmain arrives in Bigfork a broken man. He’s lived and breathed through horror accidents, haunted by the faces of the people he’s cut from vehicles. He knows one thing–speed kills. He’s hoping not to see too much of it in small town Montana, until he hears about the drag races taking place outside of town. He knows Trinity Calhoun. He’s watched her race, seen her win, held his breath when her car somersaulted into barriers in Daytona Beach. He doesn’t like what she does, but he can’t stay away from the woman who’s claiming his heart.
