Tamara Briggs lost her husband, a NASCAR driver, in a fiery crash. Vowing to never again risk her heart, she lives a quiet life as a professor and mother of two. Then she meets Elec, a sexy young driver who brings out the seductive woman she's kept tucked away. After a night of full-throttle passion, can she put on the brakes, or will she allow Elec to drive away with her heart? Elec Monroe is tired of groupies.

He wants a real relationship and a family. Tamara's hotter than a summer day at Talladega, and she's a great mom to boot. All he has to do is get past her barriers and convince her to wave the checkered flag. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Nov., 304 pp., $14.00)
