SLIPPERY WHEN WET
This fast-moving and sexy addition to Raye's NASCAR series has a nice, if unexpected, ending. There are a number of familiar faces and some new secondary ones that get a short shrift.
The only driver for Race Chicks Inc., Jaycee Anderson is a major pain. Raised by her race car-driving father after her mother died, she's a dyed-in-the-wool tomboy. At 26, she has no real experience being a woman, nor does she want any -- she just wants to beat driver Rory Canyon. They've known each other most of their lives, but after Jaycee kissed him when they were teenagers, Rory turned his back on her and their friendship. Now competitors, they refuse to let their attraction for one another distract them from their goal -- winning. But Jaycee must embrace her femininity on and off the track to stop the one and only sponsor of Race Chicks Inc. from dropping them. (Love Spell, Dec., 352 pp., $7.99)
