This story about bad boy Brandon, introduced in Britton's previous NASCAR stories, will not disappoint fans and should win the author new ones. The appearance of familiar faces lends consistency to the tale, but the complex characters and strong emotions allow it to stand alone. It's a lovely, heartwarming romance as well as an exciting visit to the NASCAR races.

Vicki VanCleef is determined to make a success of the career she's chosen as a sports agent, despite the strenuous objections of her family. When she's assigned to work with Brandon Burke, the sexy, gifted NASCAR driver who's also the bad boy of the circuit, she accepts. Although she may have bitten off more than she can chew, she's going to give it her best shot.

There's an attraction between them that tends to complicate matters, and as Vicki gets to know Brandon, she realizes there's more to him than anyone knows. However, Brandon has a secret that he's sure could destroy his career -- and it's one he's willing to share with no one. (HQN, Aug., 384 pp., $6.99)
