After 15 years on the racing circuit, NASCAR champ Clint MacAllister is looking to refocus his life. While he's been spectacularly successful on the track, his private life has been left in the dust. Clint thinks he might have found the perfect racing team wife in Darla, but she won't commit. At his brother's wedding Clint stumbles across Skye Farrel, a sex expert whose Girl Talk seminars help women reach their full sexual potential. Unfortunately, Skye has her own set of relationship issues.

While Skye can teach the basics of sex to people, she has been in a relationship drought for quite a while. Over too much champagne at the wedding, Clint and Skye decide that they can help each other obtain their goals. Keeping things on a purely professional basis seems eminently reasonable—and most unlikely.

Set against the world of Nascar racing, Raye's novel roars off the starting block with its offbeat romance. Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Twice is bold and funny, yet has a hint of poignancy. (Feb., 288 pp., $5.99)
