Author Bio

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 she’s not rushing her
oldest daughter to tumbling, her youngest daughter to music lessons, or sitting
track-side watching her son practice motocross, she’s taking the few minutes in
between to scribble the next pages in her Racing to Love series. 
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

Title: Racing to Love

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 by men.  She
ignored first the boys, and as she got older, the men.  Her cold shoulder
and patented not a chance in hell look were usually enough to get her point
across.  Molly had no plans in changing what was a perfectly good system.
That is until she walked into the pits.  
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.

They continued to walk back toward the pits, but he
stopped when they were in the darkened hallway, just before they would have
rounded the corner and been seen.
Molly’s heart sped.
He was still holding her hand, but turned to face her as
he placed his other hand on her waist. She sucked in a breath when he stepped
forward. Her first instinct was to be anxious, to cower back, but something in
those ice blue eyes told her she didn’t have to be afraid.
When he had leaned in to kiss her when they were sitting
on the track, she’d panicked. And then when he had started to move away, she’d
panicked again—for a different reason entirely.
Those flip-flopping emotions were about to drive her
Now, in the dimmed corridor, Molly closed her eyes to
catch her breath and to search for a decision. He’d been rubbing his thumb on
her waist, but his movements stopped when her eyes dropped closed. The soothing
strokes didn’t continue until she finally reopened her eyes and dragged her
attention up his chest and past his Adam’s apple. She continued up until she
locked her gaze with his. When she offered him a hesitant smile, he began
stroking her again with a warm smile on his lips.
Staring down at her, he let go of her hand and skimmed the
back of his over her cheek. She felt her heart thundering, her pulse racing
when she ran her hands up his chest, feeling each and every rippled muscle.
She’d never purposely touched a man like this before. Sure, she’d felt Brody’s
muscles when she’d smacked him for one reason or another. Or when trying to
push him off of her after he’d wrestled her to the ground being an ornery
brother and all. But this? This was foreign.
Her eyes were back on her own fingers, taking everything
in. She stopped at his heart and could feel it pounding hard beneath the soft
cotton t-shirt.
“Just so you know…” he started in his slow, sexy voice.
She could tell he was waiting for eye contact again before
continuing. “Yeah?” she whispered.
“I’m going to fall in love with you.”


Tough Girl, Hot Guy, Love, Trust, Suspense, Sweet and Caring. This has truly been one of the great reads for this summer. 

I warn you this book has an instant connection and follows more of the relationship between two people then giving you a blown out plot to keep on your toes. Although there are bits and pieces of action and suspense this is truly a book for those of a soft heart that are looking to go Awe more then they are looking to hold their breath for the outcome. 
Given that this was a very enjoyable read that had some great characters and motorcross (one of my favorite sports to watch).  And it shows how you need to stand up for what you want rather then just obey everything you’ve always been told. You will never reach your dreams if you hide in the past shadows.
