Title: Nora’s Promise: A Racing Hearts in Serenity Romance
Author: Sedona Hutton
She trusts animals more than men. He runs through women like tires. Will an orphaned child force them to change gears?
With her sister’s death, Nora’s life changed in an instant. Forced to raise her orphaned nephew, the animal rescuer doesn’t expect to be dumped and fired by her kid-hating boyfriend/boss. After her own close call and a message from beyond, Nora introduces the little boy to his handsome, fast-living absentee father.
Davey Johnson is a hot-shot NASCAR driver who never wanted to be slowed down by fatherhood. But when he finds out he has a nine-year-old son, he vows to be a better father than his old man. When his first efforts fail in a big way, he enlists Nora’s parenting help. But what starts as a chore transforms into something way hotter than a final lap.
When Davey’s sponsors clash with Nora’s vegan ways, he’s forced to choose between his passion for racing and his love of Nora. Will they be able to blend their lives or will their romance run right off the track?
After her sister dies, Nora’s life changes. She adopts her nephew and is promptly dumped by her boyfriend Matt. Her world is seemingly falling apart around her, but she forces herself to keep it together for her nephew. Not trusting men, she is wary to listen when a new job offer appears but goes against her instincts and does so anyway.
The story has some truly beautiful prose, and the paranormal twists within it were not expected but were welcome just the same. The love story is well-written and the characters are very well developed. I love the theme of the story too—believe in yourself and good things will happen.
