I recently began collaborating with Liz @ Coffee Beans & Love Scenes to promote various authors and their work. I met Liz during my virtual book tour, actually she organized it for me. We stayed in touch and now I’m part of her team of bloggers spreading the word about new books.
Today’s guest post and giveaway feature author Amy Gregory here with her latest release Racing To Love, a contemporary romance. For your chance to win one e-copy of this witty and sweet love story leave your comment at the end of this post, answering the following question: Where did Carter meet Molly? (hint: read the blurb below…)
From the outside, Molly West had everything, beauty, brains, and a career she’d retired from not once, but twice. Being in the limelight and in a sport that was male driven, she was often surrounded men. She ignored first the boys, and as she got older, the men. Unfortunately, they were all the same, all after one thing, and she had absolutely no use for them. Her cold shoulder and patented not a chance in hell look were usually enough to get her point across. Occasionally, she had to resort to her sass—and her brother.
Molly had no plans in changing what was a perfectly good system. That is until she walked into the pits. When she stood toe-to-toe with the sex in jeans, she knew right then and there that the man her adoptive mother always told her was out there, was now standing right in front of her.
Carter Sterling had traveled the racing circuit since he was a boy. He’d heard all the old standbys, She’s out there somewhere, love comes along when you least expect it. Good things come to those that… Yeah, he’d heard them all. The last place he expected to meet the love of his life was on a pro track. All she did was smile, and he knew, looking into her sapphire blue eyes, Molly West was his. Forever.
If it was only that easy. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he had a gripping feeling in him. An overwhelming need to protect her. A girl he’d just met. Carter had learned a long time ago that gut feelings are almost never wrong.
Molly now held his heart in her hands, but it was going to take a lot more than just love to protect her from the past she thought she’d buried a long time ago.
About the Author:
Amy Gregory leads an incredibly active lifestyle in Kansas City with her husband and their three fantastic kids who keep them running in three very different directions.

When asked, “When do you have time to write?” Amy Gregory giggles. “In bits and pieces,” she says.
Amy is known for her snarky, off the cuff sense of humor, which you’ll find shining through in the characters she’s created. Her debut novel, Racing to Love, Carter’s Treasure, is set for release June 7, 2012.
I’ve spent my whole life trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, and now I’ve finally found it. – Amy Gregory

And here your guest post by Amy:
I recently read a book that the ending upset me so badly I wasn’t even able to pick up the author’s next book in the series. There are two ways to look at this. One, the author was successful in getting me THAT engaged in the story. BUT – two, she was dangerously close to losing me as a reader forever. I will admit that I cheated and had a good friend tell me the ending of the series so I could continue on without a complete fear of a horrible ending. Without that, I would never have picked up the next two books. Her other problem is that, as a romance author, I am often asked for book recommendations, so… Don’t worry, she is back on my good list again.
A HEA is an absolute requirement for me to pick up a book. I hate to sound like a complete, um well you know, but I have so little time to read, even though I love to read dearly. When you combine that with how messy and sometimes ugly real life can be, I want to enjoy the book. I want to escape and have what only fiction can give you. I guess that is why I write. I fell in love with romance novels clear back in the day when I picked up Judy Blume’s Forever.
That book changed my life. I fell in love with a genre that has now become my life. I fall in love with my characters, I cry with them, I laugh my butt off with them, I snicker when they’re ornery and I have that heart-clenching moment when the pieces all fall into place for them. I will only write HEA—ever. I guess I like knowing that when the last page is turned, that my world is happy, my people are exactly where they need to be and have everything they need. Even though these people and this world is all in my head, at least it’s a happy little place to be…lol.
